How in the world is it August already?!?!?!!!

My brother always sends me the most ridiculous gifts. His recent box included souvenirs from all the different places he went to last year, plus some other stuff. I got numerous magnets. Coasters and a vase from Africa that have painted zebras/rhinos/etc on them. A bull bottle opener from Spain. A cartoony camel statue from Dubai. And a baseball cap from his ship, the USS Monterey. Duuuuuuuuuuude, I haven't worn a baseball cap since I was in high school playing softball. And can you imagine me wearing Navy paraphernalia? I think not. Anyway, I guess it's the thought that counts.

I finally got my timing belt done today. It was $1,100 *cringe*

I also got a massage today. It was very nice, but hearing my muscles crunch is always a little cringe worthy - I'm always full of knots and no matter how much they dig in, they never seem to go away.

Since the car was in the shop, I dragged the bike out to traipse around town. Skating does NOT strengthen the same muscles you use for biking.

Tomorrow I'm going to try to get myself out of bed and up to Santa Cruz to meet up with some teammates at the skatepark. Otherwise the plans are to be a bum. I think I can handle that.

One day you'll have a whole bookshelf of just random things from him, it'll be interesting!

Running doesn't train the same muscles as biking, either. Especially the "pad my rear end" muscles. Ouch, I need a new seat!
