Spring is here. In a real way. The wonderful perfumes of the world have returned to the air. Being outside is delectable.
This week has been dominated by illness in the Fortress of Funk. Kiddo has had a massive head cold and Mary had a round of what we think was food poisoning. I stayed home on Wednesday due to having a pretty rough go on the overnight with low blood sugar mixed with Mary getting up to vomit. We are in a general sense lacking in rest.
I’m still up to date on the Poem-A-Day Challenge. They aren’t masterworks certainly but I am happy with more than one of the poems I’ve written so far.
Though my legs haven’t been so pleased with the idea I’ve been doing indoor training rides to get ready for the MS Day Ride on May 10th. I think I’ll be fine but I might drink from the well of suffering on the road at this training pace, especially if the weather is cold and foul as it has a high propensity to be this time of year. I’ve got the Minnesota Ironman on April 27th (my tenth effort I think) so I’ve got double the compulsion to keep at it. Thanks to some very generous folks I’ve passed my fundraising goal but you can still donate if you like! Here is my fundraising page for the MS Ride event. Warning: There are pictures of me in full lycra through that link.
Did you figure out the theme of last week’s mix? The theme is the same this week though the genre is different. Listen to and/or download this show! The Funkomaticjamatron Presents… Remix Yellow 2: Prismatic Guitars originally mixed the week of 4.11.14
NOTE: New “The Funkomaticjamatron Presents…” mixes generally post on Fridays. The show archives are generally ten shows deep. Beyond that, if the link isn’t active, the mix has been deleted to make way for new material.
