detour da cape

rode today.

departed local: My house (@ behind the Hancock Publix, near pine island road)

departure time: 1:58pm
took the shortcut behind publix down hancock blvd. then took my first detour on that and the corner of del prado

detour #1 local: Cape Coral Bicycles (242-BIKE -2453-.. what a tuff number)
detour time spent @5 min.
$$ bikes, nice ones, ones i can't afford.. stuff that i can't afford. i left that place with a blaze of glory, so fast. like wind. faster than even.

cruised by a kenpo karate/tai chi place off of del prado...
(be cool to learn some tai chi, you know for better biking.. cross training and what not)

on the way to the bank. this old guy saw me coming, and wanted to take a right but i was in his way, so he slowed to give me the right away, but i don't need some dude getting in my way, so i'm just chill and let him pass. he get's the picture, it'd be easier if there was an international road sign language.

destination local: Bank Of America on Viscya and delprado.

destination time/spent: @2:30/10 min.
got my money.. got two mint cookies and jetted out.

detour #2 local: A,B CD's.
detour #2 time spent: 15 min
prices there are so expensive for a used media shop, but did manage to find Armitage: Dual Matrix. (anime) with Juliet Lewis.. she's sucha great actress.

detour #3 local: Hess
detour #3 time spent: @5 min
got a gatorade, and .10 milky way.
decided to take industrial park/vicyaya route home and stop by an honorary bike gang member

detour #4 local: john schiller's place
detour #4 time: >1 min.
he was out with patrick, yet another hon. bike gang member.
on the way out saw what looked like a wood route.. but just a canopy of trees.

finish line: my house
finish time: 3:15 pm

Total Time: @1 hour and 15 minutes.



MAUDE
Take a look at this, sir.

She is aiming a remote at a projection TV. The screen
flickers to life. A title card:

JACKIE TREEHORN PRESENTS

SECOND CARD:

KARL HUNGUS

AND

BUNNY LAJOYA

IN

A THIRD CARD:

LOGJAMMIN'

The Dude is at the bar, a bottle of kalhua frozen halfway
to his glass.

From the television set we hear a doorbell ring, and then a
door opening.

On the TV screen the door opens to reveal a sallow-faced
man in blue coyer-alls. It is Dieter, the floater in
Lebowski's pool.

DIETER
Hello. Nein dizbatcher says zere
iss problem mit deine kable.

DUDE
Shit, I know that guy. He's a
nihilist.

MAUDE
And you recognize her, of course.

The girl answering the door is Bunny Lebowski.

BUNNY
The TV is in here.

DIETER
Za, okay, I bring mein toolz.

Maude switches off the set.

MAUDE
Lord. You can imagine where it goes
from here.

DUDE
He fixes the cable?



i feel inspired.
no matter what route you take
no matter how many detours you make.
the destination remains the same
and always, you will never be the same person at departure.

bike haiku:
i am the water
i will flow around the rock
rocks, do not detour .
