It's exactly 10 AM, as I sit in the waiting room at a DODGE dealership. My rock n' roll van was recalled for a defective battery. So here I am waiting for them to fix it. How convenient eh? At least I brought my computer and can fill the time writing. The employees at car dealerships are like no other. A mixture of middle aged men who wear nice suits, but seem to hate their job with all of their hearts. Here comes one of the service representatives. He looks to be in his late 40's, Italian descent, telling jokes. Actually, he seems to like his job. He's smiling right now and his hair is a bit messed up. Hmmmmm.... beats me. Perhaps I'm wrong, everyone loves their jobs and I hate mine?? I doubt that to be the case.

My knee is still messed up. I took three advil last night to fight the pain. The stress that something is actually torn instead of bruised has crossed my mind. I'm sure I didn't help things by dancing for hours on Sunday evening. I love to dance though. My van hasn't moved. It's still in the same place I parked it. They said 1.5 hour wait. We'll see.

I've got less than one month of training til' the big bike ride. Am I nervous? Yes.. Will I make it? I hope so. It's kind of intimidating. Riding for 8 hours a day for a month straight. But my legs are gonna be looking good ladies..........
