I’m In Debt

23 Jul

Debt will make you do desperate things, like respond to being being tagged. Under normal circumstances I would never respond to a game of tag but when you are in the red as much as I am with Elden (he does my laundry and takes me to lunch once a week) you are left with no choice. And besides, who wants to be a leper?

I violated one of my own self-imposed blogging rules for this post. I can barely write more than 4 paragraphs in a single post let alone read that many paragraphs. I barely made it through Elden’s entry. So, I’ll try to keep my answers to a minimum just in case I decide to ever re-read this post.

If you could have any one — and only one — bike in the world, what would it be?

Got it. Vassago Jabberwocky.

Do you already have that coveted dream bike? If so, is it everything you hoped it would be? If not, are you working toward getting it? If you’re not working toward getting it, why not?

What? I just told you.

If you had to choose one — and only one — bike route to do every day for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?

Gooseberry Mesa.

What kind of sick person would force another person to ride one and only one bike ride to to do for the rest of her / his life?

A creditor.

Do you ride both road and mountain bikes? If both, which do you prefer and why? If only one or the other, why are you so narrowminded?

Ride both, prefer mountain. Being narrow minded makes life so much easier.

Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent.

No. I’d love to try one out if given the chance.

Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss?

Yes. No. I was once the very last person out of the water. Forgetting your goggles will do that.

Suppose you were forced to either give up ice cream or bicycles for the rest of your life. Which would you give up, and why?

Ice cream. I never eat it anyway, how do you think I maintain my girlish figure?

What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.

Why are roadies more uptight and serious than mountain bikers? They don’t get to ride in the mud as often as mountain bikers.

You’re riding your bike in the wilderness (if you’re a roadie, you’re on a road, but otherwise the surroundings are quite wilderness-like) and you see a bear. The bear sees you. What do you do?

Make sure Elden is between me and the bear.

Now, tag three biking bloggers. List them below.

    I like your response to seeing a bear. 😉
