US or Them

A bit of commentary to follow...

So for some strange reason we have begun receiving "US" magazine in the mail. Not sure why, maybe a practical joke, maybe a marketing tactic, maybe a mistake? None the less, it is there. And to be honest, I find it a little embarrassing. That magazine (which should more accurately be called "THEM") is full of gossip, meaningless none-sense, and trivial information about narcissistic, self consumed, so far removed from real life people, situations, and articles it isn't funny. Even scary considering how many people eat this stuff up.

Examples:
-A recent article portraying a young hip-hop artist commented about how much he loves Vans shoes, and how he often wears them only one time and then disposes of them.
-There is a section that show celebs doing normal people stuff like - Will Farrell picks up some packages, Harrison Ford rides his bike (a non-lefty Cannondale Trail for those interested), and Brad Pitt gets a cup of coffee.

For a guy that hardly reads the Church prayer lists as they walk the fine line of Church gossip newsletters, this magazine is out right over the top. I hope it ends soon.

With that out of the way... Winter has turned to spring then winter then spring again and now winter. Typical south east Ohio stuff really. Freeze, thaw, freeze, thaw, freeze. Makes riding a pain as the trails are either sloppy muddy or it is 6 degrees. Some gravel roads have been ridden on the spring days, and a few trainer sessions in the basement, but hardly what would be considered training.

On the home front, we celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary. We both took the day off of work and spent it doing little more than getting food and coffee, but while not at work and without the distraction of the kids. It was good. Oh, and Ethan has his drivers permit!

Breakfast at Harvest Moon Cafe in Canal Winchester. Dang she is pretty.
Spring sunset.
Winter commute.
Driving.
New bike parts, dang that is pretty.
