Hiatus, (confused shrug), and the mix for 5-19-17

Well folks, first things first. This is the last regular Friday of work for me until September. There will be a couple random posts over the summer I am sure, but the hiatus starts tomorrow.

Other news: The MS Ride went well. Had perfect weather. Starting temp was 62F with clear skies and no wind to speak of. I rode with my friend Kate. She was better prepared to ride than I was and hauled me along for the 45 mile route (I was really only prepared for 30 miles but with good weather and good company, much is possible). Here we are at about the 36 mile mark. Locals will know exactly where we are.

36 miles MS RIDE

Kate and I at about the 36 mile mark of the 2017 MS Ride.

Love it or hate it: No idea how I got to this mix. I had three playlists that wouldn’t gel and so I mashed them together and started cutting. I think I got hung up on “Good Beat” but I don’t really know. Anyway, it’s 90s dance radio time! Yes, I know, there is no album info. That’s an error on my part but I’m not going back to fix it now.

The Tour, THE TOUR!, and The Mix for 7-11-14

Well Loyal Readers, I’m in my third week at the new job. I’ve got to admit that going back to not knowing anything (especially after knowing everything in the old department) is a little upsetting. That being said the new challenges are good, the folks are pleasant, and the change in overall pace is very welcome. I haven’t been posting much on social media because I’m too busy learning new stuff.

To non-work news; My Tour de France mania, like b.b. gun mania at Christmas knows no bounds. Stage 5 (two days ago) on the cobbles was nerve wracking to watch and incredibly exciting. There have been a couple notable crashes in Mark Cavendish and Chris Froome who both had to abandon but that makes the whole race unpredictable and that much more fun to watch. I’ve got a fantasy cycling league going on if anyone wants to join!

In the mail this last week I received my Dexcom G4 continuous glucose monitor. I haven’t brought myself to the point of using it yet but I am hoping to make the jump this weekend. It’s hard to explain the mix of hope, weight, fear, and something like wonder I feel when considering how my life could change with the use of this machine. I guess we’ll see shortly.

I’m short on time so let’s get to the music, shall we? Listen to and/or download this show! The Funkomaticjamatron Presents… originally mixed the week of 7.11.14
