A Fresher funkyHouse

February 19th, 2010

Ahhh that looks pleasant doesn’t it?  It’s been quite some time since I’ve changed how the house looks.  And wouldn’t you know that as soon as K2, the theme that has been on here for how many years goes gold I get tired of it.  My hat goes off to those guys, I love your theme and you’ve done amazing work with the theme.  But as with anything I look at, if I spend too much time looking at it I have to punch a baby.  And no one wants me punching babies.

I know using a theme from someone else is still a cop out, but I honestly barely have the time to think about witty posts let alone re-creating the site’s look.  This theme is about as close as someone else would probably get to what I’d like to see any ways.  I would still like to do it myself just to be able to say “I did it!” It might be something I tackle some day, you never know.  There’s other things I’d rather do first.  I hope the site is pleasant enough for you to look at.  Feel free to let me know what you think.  Till next time take care and funk on.

Why I Ride

February 1st, 2010

I just registered for Pelotonia today.  To ride 180 miles from Columbus, Ohio to Athens, Ohio and back to raise $2000 to fund cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.  I just bought a bike earlier this month, and I’ve never done any serious biking before.  So why ride?

I need to get in shape.  With a group of friends who all ride it seemed like a perfect way to make exercise fun and social.  Plus you can never complain about getting outside for some fresh air.  My friends all did Pelotonia last year and came away from the ride inspired at what they had done.  Friends and family have been impacted by cancer, and it is not easy to live with for anyone.  So I’m going to ride.

So why would I jump in to Pelotonia and register to go 180 miles?  Why not 50 or 100?  Cancer doesn’t ease itself in and neither will I.  So I’m going to ride 180 miles and we’re going to raise $2000 and 100% of that will go to cancer research.  Together we’re going to help find a cure and put a stop to cancer once and for all.
