Ramble On

I have to admit right away that this post doesn’t contain a Perfect Moment. It is a pile of reflections, thoughts and a few questions I would like you to answer–if you don’t mind.

I was looking through the list of blogs I follow and noticed that many of them hadn’t been active for a year or more. That is certainly understandable.  People give up on blogs all the time.  Blogging isn’t for everyone. Maybe they didn’t get what they wanted out of it.  My question is, is it okay to delete them?  I mean, not deleting them won’t cause me any harm.  There probably isn’t a follow limit on WP.  However, it just seems like digital clutter.

I had a chance to go out for a burrito today. I went to Much Burrito and thoroughly enjoyed my food.  I had the chicken on whole wheat and it was quite massive when wrapped up.  I like to think this is the healthier version of fast food–not healthy actually, but healthier than going to the golden arches, but am I just fooling myself?

As cycling season is starting to wrap up–I’ve got at least six more weeks of comfortable rides, but the signs are there; sales in bike shops, evening rides being cancelled because it is getting dark earlier, and the temperatures are dropping.–why is it I am getting interested in more cycling stuff? I am probably going to buy a new jersey to replace my standby one.  It has become stained with a combination of sweat and sun block.  I remember a conversation on a group stop about someone who had on a black jersey.  Everyone wondered if he was too hot.  Now I realize that he just didn’t want the look that I am currently sporting.  Of course, to get the best price, this jersey is going to have to come from somewhere is Asia.  It will take six to eight weeks to get here and probably won’t see service this year–unless I get a cycling vacation squared away.

Is it me, or does the fall TV season look particularly bland? When in doubt, I’ve got sports.

I meant to join a group ride today.  I thought it was scheduled for the evening, but when I checked the website, I discovered that it was on in the morning and was for retired people or people with a flexible schedule.  Hopefully, I will remember that for next Thursday.

I guess, I just needed to ramble a bit today.

    And why not? Particularly since you didn’t get your ride.

    Get rid of digital clutter. Wouldn’t you rather read than sift through defunct websites? You can always add them back to your list when/if they come back to blogging actively. 🙂

    I have deleted quite a few inactive blogs. I have also added some by looking at friends blog rolls.

    Everything is healthier than the golden arches. On my last tour, when it was time for lunch or dinner, fast food joints never made the short list of places to stop.

    I think it’s fine to delete them. I don’t delete because I keep hoping they’ll suddenly start blogging again. LOL

    Mmmm burrito! I keep trying to make my own but they never taste like the ones you get out somewhere. Not even “good enough”.

    I go through the people I follow all the time. I delete those I haven’t ever really connected with & who haven’t posted within 6 months or more. If it’s someone I talked with lots before they went MIA, I’ll never unfollow though. Sometimes they come back!

    No, going to eat the burrito will be way better than McDonalds in the long run. At least you can digest everything in the burrito. You are not fooling yourself, you’re making great choices. 😉

    I hope your jersey comes early & surprises you. You are probably getting more into cycling stuff because you see all the signs you won’t be able to go out anymore. You always want what ya can’t have!

    I don’t watch TV by seasons, only on streaming services but, I do know A Million Little Things is coming back. Isn’t it?

    Nice to read a different post from you, Anthony. I’m a fan of rants, hehe.
