    First-World Problems

    I had too much to eat during my one hour long "executive lunch" and now I'm tired and don't feel like working anymore.

    My kindle ran out of battery on the train so I had to sit there, not doing anything, like some sort of animal.

    The AC in my office was blowing waaaaaay to cold. I got a shiver and felt like some piece of butchered meat hanging in a locker.

    I couldn't decide if I should go for a DH, XC or road ride this afternoon. And then none of the avocados were ripe at Overwaitea.

    I spent hours trying to come up with something witty to say on the TGR forum and now I'm afraid they won't think me cool.

    I can't take a hot shower when either the washing machine or dishwasher are running.

    So now I have until early September to finish The Wire. And they'll probably take all the cool shows of Instant Watch. Plus, their ski porn is very lacking.

    the RF connection between my BMW and automatic garage door for some reason didn't work a couple days ago and I had to get out and use the keypad by the door. Thank god it worked from there.


    (it was really hot out and i had to walk like 8 feet)

    Vibes MMP... glad you're alright!


    For a little more than $1M/mile, we're putting our ugly utility lines underground (FINALLY!!!), so our driveway is dug up and I can't get to Starbucks until noon.

    From what I've seen on CNN this week, We're all going to have Third World status by the end of August. There's gonna be some great First World shit for sale in the Gear Swap real soon. Yippee!

    I'm struggling to decide if i need 3G on an iPad. If I get 3G can I use the iPad like a phone? I know it'd be awkwardly sized, but it'd be cheaper than an iPhone phone+data plan, and has no contract, and I'd also no longer be tempted to bring it skiing (I hate phones on the hill)...

    I just can't deal with difficult decisions like these.
