Toorak tractor

I wasn't getting my road bike dirty today. It started raining softly from about 6:45 and that was it. A second cup of coffee and read the news, then roll out a bike that likes dirt. In Australia a Toorak tractor is a snide reference to a too expensive, too over engineered, too big 4WD driven by rich people in urban environments. Take out the rich reference, and that sums up me on my Specialised Myka dual suspension MTN bike riding to work. It is just wrong on so many levels.

I finished our blue Trekkie tops today, and Eric will put yours in internal mail tomorrow. Beam us up, Scottie! I just got back from the QTU Women's Conference in Brissie. Interesting, informative and packed with calories. We had rice with lentils and Chinese greens for dinner tonight. Poor Eric, when I overeat he goes on a diet.
