Sure it’s not till February, but if you need any suggestions of what I might want, look no further than this auction on ebay. *hint*
A few weeks ago I wrote about my first experience riding with the wolfpack. It was exciting, and challenging, and I’ve been back every week since then. Sometimes I’ve gone further, sometimes I’ve gone faster, but in all cases I’ve pushed myself much more than I ever have before. I’ve never been much of an athlete, in fact skateboarding was about the extent of it for me. But there is something about these rides and seeing what I can actually do, and then trying to out do that, that has me completely addicted. Tonight is the one year anniversary of the Wolfpack Hustle rides, and what better way to mark than then with a 100 mile ride. Yes kids, tonight will be the Wolfpack Hustle All City Century. Seriously, click that link and look at that route. It covers the majority of Los Angeles, which means we’ll be covering the majority of Los Angeles. On Bikes. Oh yeah, and one new twist – I switched my bike to fixed gear.

I’ve been getting a few
requests demands by people to add them on twitter recently so I thought I’d explain a bit about how I use the site. I know some people use it like just another social network, connecting to as many people as they can a la Facebook, LinkedIn or MySpace. That is not how I use it, I use Facebook and LinkedIn for that. With Twitter, I try and do a few things – keep up to date on the lives a few close friends, know where other friends in LA are in case I am near them and want to meet up, have conversations.
In order to do those three things with any efficiency, I can’t just follow anyone and everyone. I have to be very selective about the people that I follow, and even more selective about the people I get notifications from. In fact the list of people I get notifications from changes almost weekly based on where I am, where other people are, and who I’m talking with at that moment. I have a handful of friends who I actually don’t follow at all, but read their pages on their own all the time simply because they use Twitter so much that if I followed them it would drown out all the other people I follow. This isn’t anything personal against those folks, it’s just different usage habits require different processing.
