Punk rock triathlon gear?

The internet sells everything, it never ceases to amaze me.  Including punk rock triathlon/running crap.  You can get it from the Punk Rock Tri Guy who also has a cool blog.  He looks disturbingly familiar but I can't quite place him, maybe our paths crossed somewhere back in the day.  Or maybe not.  In any case I want one of these t-shirts:

I almost bought one too but I stopped myself because, well, I'm not going to bore you any further with my money/employment woes.  But if you're a Ramones fan you understand the coolness of it.

In other news Strummer has rediscovered his watering can.

I broke it out so that I could play with him in the yard and not have Lola join in.  She's still not allowed any off leash running and the watering can is one of the few things in this world that she won't chase.

I do not like your watering can.
I do not like it Sam I am

Strum sez that's just fine, more watering can for him.

I have to work yet another weekend but I'm happy to do it because my contract work supposedly ends on Wednesday and after that I have nothing lined up.  44% of architects are out of work in the area right now and since they're my main employer it looks like maybe I spend the rest of the summer trying to get into shape for my triathlon in August and finally proofing those dang weave poles and of course keep trying to drum up more work.  It'll be nice to have a little break as long as it doesn't turn into too long of a break.


  1. Love the pics of Strummer. I really hope you find work Elaine:-(

  2. Great one of the tongue-sticking-out-boy!

  3. Email me your information and I'll send you a shirt.

    All the best,

  4. Watering can too funny! Nice photos, too, truly keepsakes that he could show to his grandchildren if he could have any.

    Wow, Punk Rock Runner Guy saw your blog! How cool is that?

  5. P.S. That black-and-white furry nonmoving background is freaking me out! Is that new just now, or was I just not paying attention earlier?

  6. I know, how awesome is Punk Rock Runner Guy for offering me a free shirt? Very punk rock.

    I put up the zebra background when I put up the header photo, maybe 3 weeks ago?

    No Strummer grandchildren, he was deprived of that possibility before I got him. Thankfully his crazy hell spawn genes stop with him.

  7. OK, I see that if my browser window is narrow, I can hardly see the background at all. So it must've been skinnier in previous visits.

  8. A *watering can*? You have very strange dogs! ;)

  9. Strummer strange? The hell you say.
