Heya peeps, did anybody go and watch Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince last night? I didn’t…damn tickets were all sold out because of these pesky kids who have nothing better to do in the holidays *yes, I am grumpy today*

Speaking of sell-outs, did you hear about the Highland Fling Mountain Bike Marathon in Australia? It was sold out just 5 hours after registration opened! Apparently, all 1500 places were booked quickly and the organisers had to turn away another 2000 entrants. That’s actually quite phenomenal considering that the event is only scheduled for 7-8 November. For more info on this story, click here.

Going back to Harry Potter…I’m still bummed, okay? I really wanted to go watch it! The other movies that were showing were so boooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnng. Mind you, I should’ve gone to see Megan Fox on the big screen again *drool*

Have a great day and keep warm everyone!

Days of our Mountain Bikes Part 13

Like wolf whistles and cockroaches at Mugg and Bean, so are the days of our mountain bikes…

In today’s episode of Days of our Mountain Bikes titled ‘Save Me’, Mike calls an exorcist to get rid of the spirit of his mother (Ghostbusters just didn’t pick up their telephone, so who else you gonna call?). However, the exorcist can’t find anybody except some weird spirit known as Captain Howdy, who bears a striking resemblance to Julia. Julia entices Mike with more freebies, such as a new helmet, shorts, and Oakley sunglasses. Will Mike see through this act? What is Julia’s real plan here?

Tobias joins Facebook and searches for Whitney. However, he can’t find her, because like most people on that site, the photos are either too pretty or too fake to be recognisable. So Tobias joins the MTB Shorts group and places a posting on the wall asking for Whitney to contact him. Will Whitney ever check her group news again or is Tobias doomed to lose her to MySpace?

Diana responds to Hel-Met’s postcard and says that he looked beautiful flying off his bike, almost like a little Harry Potter at the Argus. She also tells him that she misses him and that he is always welcome to come visit her when he wants. Will Hel-Met visit his original adoptive mother or will he disregard her advances and just ask for money like other greedy, adopted children?

*Enter tacky music*

Stay tuned to what happens next in the Days of our Mountain Bikes!
