I was sick last week. Very sick. A head full of garbage and body aches. For all intents and purposes I was out of commission for two days. Add to this that I was out of the office on Friday and Monday for the Easter break and that means the blog took an unintentional hiatus last week. So it goes. Hopefully you had the spring sunshine as a distraction instead.
The Ironman Ride is this coming weekend. While I am under prepared for what shape I would like to be in I have also come to the place to admit that I can ride any damn pace I want and don’t have anything to prove to anyone, not really even me anymore. So I’m riding for fun and to be outside, not to turn myself inside out or to keep some mythical pace. Yes, it will most likely be cold but I’ve a new set of thermal tights and a new jersey (pictures by request only) so I’m not worried. There is a chance of rain, but 30 miles in some rain isn’t a big deal.
The April Poem-A-Day Challenge is still on and aside from a day of being too sick to understand words, I’m still on the mark. If you’re interested in the challenge, Here are the daily prompts. New to this huge pile of poems is a Search feature! If you want to read what I’ve posted, go there and pick “Funkomatic” from the drop down author list. If you venture that deep, any and all feedback is welcome.
With this compilation we are seventy five percent through this theme. And yes, each one is getting longer. Tight editing be damned! Listen to and/or download this show! The Funkomaticjamatron Presents… Remix Yellow 3: Painted Rock Revisited originally mixed the week of 4.18.14
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.
