Pretty much the same.
I drive on long stretches of road, passing faceless drivers.. personalities only passed on by the way they drive, their driving habits.
I pull into the gravelled drive and am greeted by the silent exterior of my warm home.
We cook, we eat, we discuss. Desserts, enjoyed most nights but not all.
Then we lie comatose. Trying to break that habit we sometimes turn on the radio, opening a Pandoras box of cacophony. These are moments i enjoy more.
Other times we attempt to complete projects that would make Sisiphus appear to be slacking. We take our time, as our home is here to stay.
Eventually we succumb.
It all starts again tomorrow.

Mostly flat with gradual hills. While the peeps I was with had multi geared road bikes, I took up the rear in my two gear Marin Hamilton 29er. I pedaled longer and harder than my friends who could change their gear at the flip of a paddle or switch. All in all a great ride and an even better work-out.
What's with the Lance Armstrong wanna be's? DO YOU have to dress in all lycra? Do you have to spend money on specialized clothes, when normal clothes work just as well? It's not like it is a time trial or a mountain stage of the Giro d'Italia. Why do Americans feel the need to wear sport appropriate clothing to the particular sport they are partaking in? Just because you watch the Tour and casually bike on the weekends, does not require you to put on the "uniform". I understand that some sports do require special equipment, but last I checked scuba gear is not required for biking... SHit brother just roll up your right pant leg so your pants don't get caught in the gear...
I am sick an tired of seeing all the overweight Lance Armstrong wanna be's cycling on the trails of Maryland and the District.
But yeah anyway. All you need are two gears and a rolled up right pant leg.

Swollen and distended or congested: "a turgid and fast-moving river".
(of language or style) Tediously pompous or bombastic: "some turgid verses on the death of Prince Albert".
For more usage of the word see the comments at the end of this article:

I woke this morning, at 5:15 thinking i needed to drive 2 hours to Richmond, VA for a doctors appointment. Prior to leaving i decided to check my phone messages That had built up. Yes i have the odd ability of not checking my cell phone messages until months later. Low and behold I had a reminder message from the Hume-Lee Transplant Center reminding me my appointment was not until MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14th.
Back to bed?
Empty the dishwasher?
Enjoyed a delicious slice of pumpkin pie.

I knew when we bought our house, in Mount Rainier, Maryland, we were moving into a mixed neighborhood of artists, aging hippies and blue collar plebes.
Being the social guy that I am, I subscribed to the neighborhood/city's yahoo group listserve to learn up on the locals, the politics and the general goings on.
Most emails inquire into good contractors, rumors about our city government and the giving away of free garbage.
The listserve received the below email last night from Joanne Kirsch, enjoy its simplicity:
I wonder if her animal needs to stop smoking or lose weight? Or maybe is suffering from depression...
If you want to subsribe to utter whackiness that is the Mount Rainier, MD yahoo group listserve, feel free it is open to all and not moderated:

I consider myself a far left of center independent voter. But I like you, Herman Cain, I like you a lot. Your heading a pack of emotional issue driven screwbags who have no answers to the issues of the day. 999 is perfect. Practical??? prolly not.
Anyway, your recent statement regarding the Democratic Machine being behind your attacks is so wrong its mind boggling. The demos want you to win, I want you to win, your party's nomination. Please look to your racist brethren of the GOP. They are leading the way and spending the money in an attempt to bring you and your foot long down (i have it on good authority) via a high-tech lynching. BECAUSE THEY ARE SCARED!
Most probably think it is Perry who is funding your "Democratic machine", but I think its the cultist Romney, cuz he wants the nomination more.
I am sure you know this, 'cause you are a smart guy, and you are just using the demos as your 'high-tech' punching bag, so that in the event you DO win your party's nomination you have something to point to and say "hey, look what they did".
Anyway, in the event you read this I want you to know that I am posting a link to your campaign website's DONATE page: DONATE TO HERMAN CAIN.
I want you, Herman Cain, to win the GOP's nomination.
I urge all of my readers to visit www.hermancain.com and donate to Herman Cain's campaign. Because anything else would be detrimental to our great nation.
Yours in Christ,
ps I tried to type this in Comic Sans but blogger.com does not provide it as a font choice.
Don't forget to donate to Herman Cain: https://www.hermancain.com/donate
