Signed: "Confused in MPLS"

So a year ago a business coach (company sponsored, mind you. She's a great person and it was a wonderful experience.) told me: "Don't let perfection stand in the way of good enough." Good advice for me as I tend to obsess over details.

But lately the big man at our company has added this tag line onto the signature for his emails: "Good enough is the enemy of great."

Befuddling. What's a poor boy to do???

Crashed my Big Dummy on the way in today. Stopped to pick up a swanky StealthLite that was laying beside the path. Great shape, it even works. (Those things are totally waterproof. Plus, I love ground scores while riding.) In the process of stopping my glasses fogged up. 50m up the way I didn't notice the path was ice. I made a quick move to shoot up a grass bank and cut through a parking lot. I got no further than cutting my front wheel a couple degrees before I was lying on the ground. Took the entire fall on my right knee, precisely where the ice turned back to rough ASS-fault. Pass the Vitamin I, please.

Watch the freeze-thaw, friends. I usually make it through the winter relatively unscathed. It's early spring that always seems to get me.

Remember Flecker, hope is not a successful buisness plan either... FUCKIT! I hope to become rich. Weed and beer rich that is... XXOO

It was rough riding on the icy streets of Mpls and St. Paul last night, but I made it unscathed. Nice seeing you last night. Heal up dear boy!
