Curiosity quencher

OK, to fend off the many curious inquiries as to how and where I met "Celine", what she looks like, etc.

I met this fine, sleek, black specimen on Saturday, July 29th at a rather odd location just off Main St. in Worcester. I'll be honest, it was love at first sight - I couldn't keep myself off her. Without hesitation, I brought her home, immediately jumped on her and starting riding her for hours on end. Man, it certainly did feel great to get the heartrate up and sweat again. She satisfies my innermost primal urges, you could say - for 90 minutes, two hours or longer if I so choose, but you know how it is - sometimes you just need to take a break and re-charge.

Sorry for the graphic images, but given my recent heartbreak, I was looking to fill the large void left in my life as quickly as possible. I'm happy to say that Celine has provided me that. For the time being, she's there whenever I need her, and it's comforting to say the least.

For all you curious pervs out there, Celine's measurements are 54 cm, 18 lbs, Shimano 105 shifters and components, an ALX 298 wheelset and a compact geometry that will make your head spin. She's one of the hottest-looking Specialized road bikes I've ever laid my eyes on.

That's right, I was talking about my new bike. And some of you thought I actually had a real girlfriend. Now THAT's funny.

Quote of the day:

Trials never end, of course. Unhappiness and misfortune are bound to occur as long as people live, but there is a feeling now, that was not here before, and it is not just on the surface of things, but penetrates all the way through: We've won it. It's going to get better now. You can sort of tell these things.

No. There is NO WAY that anyone thought that you had a REAL girlfriend. Exhibit A: This post.

See...this just isn't even fair. It's like, there are so many, many things that I could say about this right now, but they're all fighting for first place.

Cheers, though, for keeping it up. Besides that, you make me laugh.

Just remember to let her down easy when the romance is over. :-p

You cheating whore!

All of this sweating and riding with Celine. Wait until your flats find out about this squalid affair you are having. A summer fling with a road bike is going to be hard reconcile with a jilted pair of racers. You better be prepared to buy a new pair of laces and a shoe rack to make nice when you come crawling back on hands and knees begging for a second chance.

Unless of course you can all get along and have a threesome!

That would be a win-win-win.
