You ever seen that Spike Lee Movie 25th Hour? (It's not his best, but it'll do.) Basically Ed Norton's character is going to prison for seven years. A benevolent DEA agent gives him a 24 hour reprieve to live it up. That's how I felt today, only my prison sentence looked like this:
So I had to get some riding in on the way home from school today. Had to. Now I'm cooked...but I have FOUR whopping hours in my legs for the week.
In other, not-all-me-being-annoying-all-the-time-news...
