My entire left side of my body is tore up, but I can't even say "You think I look bad? You should see the other guy".
Because the other guy is a rock.
And some asphalt.
Margs, stop being cagey, what happened?
I crashed my bike this morning. Sad face. It was totally my fault too, I ran into a giant rock because I wasn't paying attention. Of course this crash happened shortly after thoughts like "I feel so comfortable on the bike, maybe I will win the tour next year", were going through my head.
A super nice couple helped me out post crash, put the chain back on, and made sure I was ok to get home. An unlucky morning saved by the luck of having people who both are nice and know about bikes. I'm now mostly peeved that my bike is a little banged up and I'm not sure how bad. I'll be ok, but my poor bike can't heal itself ;).
.....From random bad stuff to random AWESOME stuff.....
When I started this blog, I hoped for this glorious moment.
Yes, the moment when a company thought I had enough pull to send me stuff. Fa Freez!
(Cue "We are the champions" music)
Well friends. It happened. Diet Coke sent me a refrigerator.
Honestly I don't know. I love the stuff, but I was a little shocked. What I DO know, is that I've been beggin' for a fridge in my office for the past few months. And apparently Diet Coke listens when no one else does:
Glorious cold drinks at all hours of the day!!!!
The funny part about this whole thing is that Diet Coke didn't just send a fridge, they sent a camera crew. And I answered questions like "When was the last time you had a Diet Coke?". And got super flustered because I am the worst public speaker ever.
And then I signed a release form. I'm kinda hoping they put me in a superbowl commercial.
So....SUPER flattering and sweet of them. Plus I think I gained a little street cred in the office.
But, like everything, free awesome gifts are in the eye of the beholder. My brother was on the phone with my mom and told her that Diet Coke sent me a fridge and interviewed me.
"I can't believe she is drinking so much soda! Tell her to stop!"
Nothin' like family to bring your ever expanding ego back to earth =).
