Cyclists in striped pajamas

What What?!?! Almost 200 prisoners are going to ride in the Tour de France next month. They are going to be riding 1,400 miles of the tour and they get to stay in hotels at night. WTF?! Curtis said this would be the only way he could ever ride in it. :)
Read all about it here.

Just realized that I really haven't been sketching much lately. Enter Lil Jack, based on my friend and co-worker. First thing he says when he sees it, "My head should be much bigger."

Cat Workout

You can find my new bridal workout here. I wonder if Romeo and Merc would be down for this...

Good Golly Miss Molly

Fun fun fun times were had in California with my favorite Irish girl, Molly. Highlights of my trip include getting to touch her superhero bike, finally seeing the Avett Brothers with her, and drinking wine out of Garfield coffee cups. These are all pics from my cell phone so the quality isn't great.

As always, the Avett Brothers were amazing. We were so close I totally thought I could smell their b.o. Turns out it was the dancing hippies behind us.

I honestly could not tell you why I thought this was so funny...

Molly works for Bell helmets and in their conference room is all of Lance Armstrong's signed Tour de France jerseys.

The coolest cruiser ever. Until I get mine painted of course.

I mean really! I want this in my yard!!!

I love my mommy!

Happy Mother's Day!  Vintage Mommy and me above.  She swears my head is still the same size.

Rainy Days and Sundays

Here's the view from my driveway.  The foothills are ridiculously amazing today with all the fog.  It's rainy out and I love these days.  There's just something about how damp and green everything is that makes me happy.  And I came home and saw these hanging out where I park my car...
They smell beautiful and I can't wait till my parents and Molly get to come out here and see them!  If they are still blooming...I don't know too much about plants...

One of the best parts of my childhood

When I was little, this was the only way I could remember how to spell turtle. And maybe it still is...

Gonna need this...

...for my house. Curtis and I have already discussed our Z.A.P. Have you and your loved ones? Find this and more informative posters here.

Kung-Fu Grip! Weeeeeew!

I can totally say I knew them when.

Kung-Fu Grip is a band out of Ft Collins, CO who just got together a few months ago. Russell on the drums, Jake on bass, Diesel on guitar, and Derek on lead guitar. Their music is awesome and they sound better everytime I hear them. They have their first live gig sometime in June. When I find out the exact date, I'll post it. Check out their Youtube channel here and give them some love on their myspace page here.

Here's another one of my favorites.

Wolverine is in theaters today! I have been looking forward to this shii since last year! All I want to do is skip out early from work and catch a early show. I wonder if I could just take a 3 hour lunch. For as much of a comic book fan as I claim to be, I really have been slacking. I still haven't seen Watchmen and probably won't be able to see Wolverine till next week. I know, I know, if I was really dedicated, I would make time, but this weekend is packed. The little free time I will have will probably be spent designing our wedding invitations. Getting old and responsible is really for the birds. So in honor of my favorite mutant, I though I would post my favorite Wolverine related nonsense I have found.

One of my favorite pics of Wolverine. Pencils by Humberto Ramos who is an amazing comic artist.

Remember when this happened?! Blew my fragile little mind.

Surreal Wolverine by Salvador Dali by Rivera - via. I love Dali, I love Wolverine. Mash up made in heaven.

That, my friends, is dedication. Via.

I love to ride my bicycle

Went riding with Curtis and April and this sums up how I felt at the beginning of our ride. How cute is this kid?

The bike killer by ~Mrsimonsson

And I felt like this after. We rode some stuff I totally psyched myself out about and did way better than I thought. Curtis and April were so motivating and sweet, I don't know how they put up with my grumpy ass.
