I Dream of Dick

I have a handful of blogs that I visit on a daily basis (at least on days that I check blogs). One of my must reads is Dicky. Marcy is not fond of him because he "seems kind of angry" but I like his blog because he "seems kind of angry" and he often says stuff that he assumes people will take the correct way but sometimes don't. Just like me.

Anyway, the other night whilst I was blissfully slumbering I was having a dream about a mountain bike race. I don't think that it had started yet, maybe it was pre-race festivities. Who knows but there were tons of people there and who do I spy out of the crowd? Dicky of course. In real life Dicky has no clue who I am. In fact, he probably doesn't even know me in blog life but in the dream, we had a moment. Right when our eyes met. I could see in his dreamy eyes that there was a moment of recognition when he say me. Unfortunately, being the mega star that he is everybody was mobbing him for a handshake and greeting but finally, with a bit of work he made it over to me, reached out with his hand and said "you're rick right?" and that was it. One fleeting moment that I will always cherish.

The weird thing about this dream is that while I do read Dicky's blog regularly, my highest level of blog stalking is reserved for ThomP and not once have I dreamed about him or his Tom Selleck chest hair. Although, now that I think about it, maybe Thom has dropped down a notch in my mind now that he's going to be riding geared and Dicky is still fighting the good fight.

Hmmm, maybe it's posts like this that make Marcy concerned about my sexuality.

Hey, my contract (you think Conan's getting a sweet deal for leaving NBC?) just says that have to put 20 gears on my bike. Nowhere does it say I have to use more than ONE.

Speaking of not knowing who you are in real life, I don't think I ever told you about this: I saw some tall dude in a Bikeman kit at The Ice Weasels and started yelling "Rick! Hey Rick!" at him. He didn't turn around.

you're not strong enough to resist the urge of the gears.

that was actually me, I was just pms'ing and didn't feel like talking.

Tell Marcy that Dicky is okay. He's got the Mandy-Semi-Seal-of-Approval, in the appropriate sort of way of course.

I love to read both Dicky and Thom's blogs as well and I enjoyed your post about them.

thanks Mandy. Marcy'll come around. I can be kind of angry sometimes and she still sticks around...
