My 4 x 9


This little quizzy thing came my way via Shane, a very cool guy who bicycled across America and stayed at our house in the process (via Warmshowers.org, which is NOT a XXX site involving bodily functions, but is a site that hooks up cyclists with places to stay). He is planning to cycle through Africa sometime soon, and has lots of cool cycling stories and photos on his blog at Shanecycles.com so check him out!

Marv, spoken like a true Texan. I can feel how much you love where you are when you post on your blog. Lonesome Dove was one of my favorite books ever but I haven't seen the movie yet. I think I'm worried it won't measure up.

Hey Robin - I posted mine this morning:
http://www.baha703ironman.com/2010/11/my-4x9-peek-into-mindlife-of-jason.html


Now, is it supposed to be 9 things b/c I have counted a number of times and it comes out to 8. I did take my socks off as well to count in case my fingers were wrong.

Robin said...

Hah Jason you're right, there is only eight! I probably goofed while copying the original. I love the Usual Suspects too, well almost anything that Kevin Spacey is in really.

Robin said...

Tina, you rock. I don't think anyone else would say they'd rather be doing hill repeats!!!
