I went to the store, did 4 loads of laundry, a little cleaning. Got everything ready to make a quiche for dinner (mushrooms, asparagus, and Swiss cheese), and then went upstairs for a ride. Squeezing my rear tire, I though it might be able to use a couple of pounds. Bicycle tires have tubes so you don't really need to worry about them once they're pumped up. Occasionally, though, you do need to add a pound or two. I unscrewed my clutch knob to release tension on the back tire and grabbed my pump. It didn't take much. As a went to tighten my clutch knob, it clicked once and then spun freely. Word of the day. That's right, the damn thing broke. I've had this trainer for 21 months.... I've only put air into that tire, oh, maybe 8 times. Word of the day. So, I went to the Cycleops website to see if I can order a new knob and... this model is "no longer available." Word of the day. I called Cycleops and they're send me a new clutch knob because it's still under warranty. This surprised me. The clutch knob is one of the things the warranty doesn't cover.

It's supposed to arrive tomorrow. Since it was rather expensive, I will go to work for a little bit and then come home. I don't want this little baby sitting on my front porch.
As for my Word of the day, I'm fairly certain it's not nearly as bad as Rudy Giuliani's Word of the Day. And the Idiot Jerk's Word of the day? Holy Shit! And with 45% of the American people now saying the Idiot Jerk should be impeached, his base is beginning to shriek their own Word of the day. And those Republican Senators up for re-election? If they have to chose between their career and the Idiot Jerk, you know which way their vote is going to go.
As for my Word of the day? Well, it's not just one word. It's a phrase. I'll give you a hint. The first word is 'son.'
