Bought a new mortgage yesterday (refi). Locked in at 3.25% with only the VA funding fee out of pocket, which is 0.05% of the principal. Took off $200 from my mortgage payment so I am pretty happy about that.
I blame REI for their used gear sale and 20% off coupon and friendly staff that's too helpful and informative.
Pearl Izumi All-Road
Shimano SPD A520
And CycleOps Wind indoor trainer for when it's raining and/or my sense od self-preservation outweighs my drive to get fit.
Been cycling in the mornings 5-7 miles, signed up for Tour de Cure 2013, am hoping to upgrade to a full road bike down the line. The bumpy ride is chronicled over in the cycling forum if anyone will need a good laugh after I get going with the clipless setup.

Between a crappy phone-camera, and a really aging 8 mp Canon, I had to pick up something for my constant ebay-ing and forum-use, lol.
Pretty cheap, but rated pretty high on CNET...eh. Someday I'll get a nice camera, but not today.

welcome to the layer cake
college friend had a wedding in Traverse City Michigan, and reserved a block of rooms at the Great Wolf Lodge. the pool and giant bucket of water that dumps on you, was a nice way to get over a pounding hangover.
though, their theme song still haunts me.

Frozen chocolate belgian waffles
Imported from Belgium and sold by Julian's. Bought them at Target this morning.
This is the real deal! So freaking delicious!
If you can't measure it, you can't understand it; if you can't understand it, you can't control it.
60,000 miles later and 140k total...finally throwing on SVT Focus suspension. Same as the picture minus the swaybar and with assembled struts because I'm lazy and understeer is fine with me.
Up next, sway bar endlinks and $385 worth of rad tools to install it with after getting an estimate from the shop this afternoon
I had buyer's remorse about it at first because I'm terrible spendthrift, then figured that my lack of a car payment now and in the future makes it easily justifiable
