I just put in an order for a 29 inch unicycle! I'm so excited!

It's the Torker AX 29, a lightweight aluminum cycle. I'm really looking forward to getting it, as it'll make it much easier to unicycle for longer distances than I can on a 20 inch (though not quite the same distances I'd go on a bike).

I just hope it gets here quick, I'm going to be heading for California soon!

Well that wasn't fun

Blew chunks out both ends for about 2-3 hours last night. No idea why, didn't have any other symptoms. I guess it must have been some food poisoning or something.

I'm feeling mostly better this morning... well, afternoon. I didn't get to sleep until 5am.

Pictures of stuff

I got the first shipment of computer gubbins in today, and took the time to snap a few photos while I was bubbling with glee. I'll add more photos as more parts come in (still to come: laptop battery and harddrive).

I also took the opportunity of having my camera out to take a picture of my new unicycle, which I love to death.

All in all it's been a good day.

Spending the government's money

So I sent in my tax return this afternoon, and I should be getting about $2500 back, which is about what I was expecting.

To celebrate this, I put in an order for a new laptop battery, a new laptop hard drive (Seagate 5400 RPM 160GB), a box of rechargeable batteries (low self-discharge), a new mouse (Logitech G5), and a 50-pack of CD blanks (For $16 why not).

The whole pile came out to $315 including all the shipping, taxes, etc. Money well spent, with plenty left over for living and whatnot.

Stupid Smarch Weather

-32c this morning, -21c this afternoon, and that's not even counting the windchill. Where the hell is spring?

I can't wait until I'm soaking up the sun in California.

New Wheel!

My shiny new unicycle came today! I'm so happy, it's much better than my old one. I haven't taken any pictures of it yet because I'm feeling a bit under the weather, but I'll have some posted soon enough.

Only bummer, though, is that I accidentally stripped one of the bolts in the seat post clamp when I was adjusting the seat to fit. The other bolt is holding ok, but all the same I dropped them an email to ask them to send out a new clamp.

I'm still very happy, though!
