I went out to dinner with Frank. He has a Microsoft Prime card that lets you get deals at certain restaurants. We got italian for about 10 dollars. Then we went home and watched Road to Perdition. Good Movie.
Frank and I met up with Ray at the Team in Training group ride. We were just tagging along really but they were doing hill repeats. It really wasn’t all that big of hill, but whatever. It was a good atmosphere. I can understand why a lot of women do TNT. Everyone is super supportive and there’s no egos involved like there is on certain group rides.
Later on, I hung out with Ronnie and Josh. I played some go with Josh. I lost pretty badly since I have no idea what I’m doing in go. Then I tried to solve a Rubik’s Cube but that just made me feel stupid.
Then I went to Rich’s to play some poker. I lost 7 bucks which is a bummer. They play a lot of weird games that I don’t know what the strategies are, or what the expected outcomes are, so I end up losing a lot. Tho we did play tournament Texas Hold ’em for while, and I did okay there. I just needed to be more aggressive at the end.
I rode the Sea Otter course down in Monterey with Jason. I was surprised with myself since I don’t think I’m in great shape for the race coming up in April. But I managed to finish the course without too many problems. Tho I did hit a tree with my left shoulder coming around a turn. Good thing there’s a lot of meat there, so it’s nothing more than a scrape.
Ate chinese for dinner with Ken and Choon and some other folks. Everyone teased me cause I was dressed up in a nice shirt and shoes, which usually I’m in T-shirt and Birkenstocks. I notice that I was the only single person at the table of … 10. 😛
My Laptop is dead. The LCD panel broke, so there’s no real chance of repair. It’s too bad. It was a good laptop. It’s still pretty slim even by today’s standard. It’s a big bummer. It served me well for 5 years. I’ll have to take the 40gig HD out and move it to my other screaming machine – a P2 350. 😛
