Packing Day

I just finished my ride (just beat the thunder/lightning/rainstorm home) and now it's time to pack for my flight tomorrow to NYC. I havent really gotten excited about it yet, but that is what packing is for. It gets me in the spirit.

The only part of preparation i am not excited about is cutting my hair. I really tried to get my hair cut here a few times but i am always left looking scary. One time they shaved my beard with a straight edge - i didnt even know i had one until i saw the blond fuzz float to the ground. Another time i was left with a mullet. The worst was when they gave me a hardcore "dont bother looking at me as i am gay" haircut. What made it even more amusing is that for months afterwards (according to my male friend who sees the same guy) he bragged to all his customers that he has a gay pro cyclist as a client. Even with all the bad experiences, i still considered getting my hair cut at a salon since it is a little uncomfortable to lift my arm due to the rib incident. But I got my ribs taped yesterday by my therapist and thankfully it seems to help a bit!

Off I go!

Have fun and enjoy :)
Maybe you should get your hair cut in NYC?

Hey Christine, sorry to hear of your rib injury. That sucks! Have a great talk in NYC.

btw; For two years, while you weren't around, I found a #2 blade was workable and maybe youthful. Now I go to the Salon too. haha.

Had a few bids on the skin suits, no takers.

Thanks for the reminder, I need a haircut. Yes, I have hair!! It is just very fine, kind of like "Angel Hair." I must have missed the rib injury event. Ouch. About the rib injury list, I'm sure I would put up with a little rib discomfort for one of those orgasism thingys.... ha. Have a nice time in NY. As always, your biggest fan.

Hope the 'rally' went well and you rocked your speech :)

How are those ribs holding up?

I looked at the pictures.

Looks like the rally was well supported and organised.

Well done!

The guys on bike got a lot of coverage.
