Things.
I put my iPod on "Music I haven't listened to much" this morning, and it's off on a shiny, happy Sesame Street kick. How can you not smile after "The Monster In The Mirror", "I don't want to live on the moon", "ABC-DEF-HI", "C is for Cookie"....

Having 100 userpicts rules.

I called the bike shop this morning. He agrees that it's most likely that I just blew out the paper head gasket. Only Harley would put a paper head gasket on an air-cooled engine. He also said if he has to open it anyway, they might as well top it - replace the rings, check the valves, all that stuff. He seems to think that it won't be all that expensive, but it'll take a while to get the parts. I'm not in a huge hurry, so that's okay.

I'm finally moving users over to the new server. It's going more smoothly then I imagined it would. No major problems so far - I'm waiting on one user to update some portal code, and I have myself and 2 other users to move. It's got all the services of the old one, with the exception of a newsserver - I'm going to get that up this week sometime.

I'm taking a break from townhouse stuff. I unpack a box every once in a while, but that's about it. I might get started on building bookshelves this weekend, if the bike is still in the shop.

A Tale In The Desert is going wonderfully. I've got a good base to build off of, it's so good to see my friends...it's great to be back in Egypt.

I went soaring this past weekend, for the first time in forever. The soaring was good, but I couldn't stay in the thermals to save my life. I had asked for a tow to 3000 ft, but I popped off at 2000. The lift was there, but I couldn't find anything big enough to stay in, and I quickly regretted not taking the last 1000 ft of tow. I renewed my tow currency, and got a backseat checkout, so it wasn't a wasted day. Next Sunday, I'm towing.

And that's Tina's Random Life.

Make that "only Harley and Volkswagen". I'm pretty sure my old beetle was the same.

This is why my next bike will be a Honda. I bet _they_ don't make head gaskets out of paper!

A Honda 600cc engine powers Nick Crowe and Darren Hope's racing sidecar outfit, and they won both TT sidecar races this year. That Honda is taking a hell of a beating in that outfit - well, you've seen the videos!

Pictures from Ballaspur from this year's Sidecar Race B are here:

Sesame Street Music?

Where did you get the Sesame Street music? Someone in my life would very much like it if Daddy could find her some to put on his iPod.

Do you have "Everything's coming up noses?"

Don't have "Everything's coming up noses". I've never seen that on CD. I've got a few other songs - the Jimmy Buffet duet with Kermit doing "Carribean Amphibian", most notably - but that's the album most of them are from.
