"I drag my chains they don't drag me"

The starter in my car went out on my way to work this morning. As i pulled out of my drivway my car started smoking like crazy and smelling like lung cancer. Luckily i made it to an auto shop before it totally died. So, i ended up paying $600 to fix my car and in return i got to take the day off work and ride my bike around the city taking photos and drowning my sorrows in coffee. As i was riding around thinking about what horrible luck i've had this last year i came to the conclusion that the camel's broken back was the fault of the camel, not the straw.

This isn't to say that things are all bad. I get a proof of The Rain City Fix book in 6 days, I'm finishing my right sleeve later today, and last night i had the first bbq of the season. So, there's that.

Being off work has been refreshing, to say the least. This is the longest break i've had from work since around 2002. It was like i forgot things happen durning the day on weekdays.

Yesterday I watched The Bridge: A documentary about people who killed themselves by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge in 2004. It was interviews of family members and friends of the people who jumped along with footage of people actually jumping. Despite how tragic these stories were the films was captivating to say the least. and, if you can handle it, I’d highly suggest watching this movie.
