12/26
Cole picked me up since the roads were thick with snow and I left my mtb at work. Driving away I noticed he was drifting across the ice every now and then. He did not seem to care. Finally I asked him about his driving experience with snow since he is a Boulderite. Man this guy had no fucks to give about driving on snow. He drifted every which way like a fucking boss.

It snowed all morning. It would not fucking stop snowing. The bosses bought us a shit load of pizza.

12/27
Cole told Sam he bought him a shirt that read, "Shit is fucked."

The memorable quote of the day:

Cole: Holy shit it's 4pm? Man I'm losing track of the day
Me: Holy shit it's 4pm??
Cole: I'm going to need you to stop asking questions

Cole was paid back for the pizza he bought us on the past two Saturdays. Then he turned around and lost it on the Pearl Pkwy.

Nate's new nickname for Cole: Coleslaw

Saw a 2 bedroom apartment near the foothills. Holy shit what a cozy place. One of the tenants upstairs plays the drums. The backyard isn't fenced in unfortunately, so I doubt Isa would like the listing. But it was really nice and the location was awesome.

Got my speed suit back from the seamstress. Hopefully I don't snap the hem on the collar again... #fatass

Was going to pick up a park tool TS-2 for dirt fucking cheap but the asshole sold it to somebody else.

Worked 6am to 1pm today. Cole ordered pizza but the delivery took forever. The pizza arrived cold. It was delicious, but I wish we ate hot pizza on a cold day. Afterwards I rode to Guitar Center in Westminster and picked up some picks and strings. They didn't have a peg winder, but a music store down the street did. After picking up the peg winder, I rode home. The return journey took forever. And it was fucking cold. Snow was suppose to fall on us, but I don't trust forecasts anymore. I need sleep. And food. I want a beer.

Caught a ride to work with Cole this morning. Brought my mtb to take to the shop across the street. At lunch I went and bought a used guitar. I need to buy new strings for it. Plays great! I found out today that most of my coworkers are actually not transplants. And there is something called Niwot's curse: basically, when you come to Boulder, you never leave. Notable incident today involving Sam:

[Sam gets frustrated with the new 3.0 motherboard]
Cole: You know what worked really well? Gen2.

Some more memorable quotes:

Nate: [talking about the right side power meters] Most of these are failures
Daniel: we're all gonna die

Daniel: these batteries are recycled? Let's pop them open and do battery acid

[Cole explaining why QC is important]
Cole: but what if he gets a power meter that wasn't QC'd? Then you start losing sleep over it because he'll get a bad power meter. Then HE starts feeling bad because he has a bad power meter. He'll feel like shit for having crap numbers
Daniel: then he offs himself

Today started great with me forgetting my bike lock. No topo chico today :(. A couple quotes from the day:

[Sam takes Jeff's screwdriver without asking]
Jeff: (sarcastic, without missing a beat) Yeah, I wasn't using that.

Sam: They're all failing high. Why is it doing that?
Cole: That's a "Sam Question."
[Sam walks away]
Me: That's why they pay him the big bucks.
Cole: Yeah we just tell him it's not working.

Things arrived in the mail. I can't wait to go back to Miami soon!

It's going to snow tomorrow!

Last night was the Stages holiday party at Fate brewing. Needless to say, I got pretty wasted. But it was a comfortable buzz. Conor was relentless in making sure I drank as much as him. I had a pretty good time with my co-workers; I felt like we all opened up to each other. Our boss Peter had a dozen name tags stuck to the back of his jacket by the end of the night. I took tequila shots with Conor. I can't even remember the last time I drank tequila. I had fun, and I was good enough to ride home in thirty degree weather. Soon as I got home I knocked the fuck out. And then I overslept. Woke up with a hangover. Managed to get to work on time. My coworkers trickled in slowly but surely. Conor was a wreck. And he was mad that I was fine AND able to ride my bike in the morning. The day was brutal though. I drank so much water I had to piss every twenty minutes. But we made it through the day. Then I went on a mission and ended up buying a bunch of snow gear. I bought this fuzzy hat that matches my Deadpool shirt AND my chrome sling. I didn't even plan that. I was nervous about this weekend, but now I'm excited as hell for some snow. Hopefully getting to work won't be too much of an issue, but I think my mountain bike will do just fine.

Had a gigantic chocolate chip cookie and a topo chico at whole foods. I love this place.

Yesterday I worked from 6am to 12pm. Cole ordered pizza for us from Audrey Jane's. It was pretty delicious. Afterwards I went for an hour ride before heading to the Project Supertraining holiday party. There, I placed two bids on some silent auction items. I am not sure if I won either of them, especially the s-works tarmac! I took a few beers to the face and could not stop eating all the free food. Afterwords we went to Whole Foods and got pizza, because I am a fat ass. I discovered that WF has topo chico! Hands down my new favorite sparkling water of all time. We got back to the apartment where I promptly passed the fuck out.

Nate got his nerf football back today. The expression on his face was priceless.

This morning, on my commute to work, the water in my bottle froze. That's how cold it was, and it will eventually get cooler. Gulp.

My pearl izumi gloves, rated for 20 to 40 degree temps, as well as a balaclava, arrived in the mail the day before. I tested them out. The gloves felt great, the balaclava not so much. I prefer my felt face mask and cycling cap. I also have a thermal cycling cap on the way. Now I just need to order leg warmers that fit. I am slowly acclimating to riding in cold temperatures as well as acquiring the right gear for riding in said temps. I also need more black jeans.

Sold the dura ace stages today. Made a $100 profit. I hope I can sell more stuff because I have a lot of things I need to get. And pay off my credit card debt (it's substantial).

I visited No Limits Archery in Thornton. Thornton is a suburb just north of downtown Denver. The view of DT denver is amazing from Thornton. The city lights create a haze where you can only see some of the high rises. It was cold but I survived the short bike ride from the bus station on US36. I met Willie B of 106.7 KBPI. He is a big dude. I really enjoyed watching the event; I am pumped to give it a shot (no pun intended) on my next visit. Tonight was a test to see if I could survive the trip. Luckily, the FF1 operates pretty late. Getting home would not be an issue if I did not feel like riding. I still need to begin exploring all these suburbs. Denver is fucking massive.

Rode to work in 15 degree weather. My hands froze. They hurt so bad. They felt as if someone smashed my fingertips with a hammer. Hammer smashed fingertips.
