Oh Snap!

I forgot to mention..  I’m getting my port out tomorrow morning first thing!

Weeeeeee!

This new doc agrees with me that there’s no reason to have it in.

That if, down the road, I am offered more chemo for some reason, and am bat shit crazy enough to accept it.. (or am some how otherwise compelled), I can have another put in.  I’ve already had two.  What’s the big deal with doing a third.  This one has never worked properly anyway.

As to the fate of the assless.  Thank you all for your input..  I think I’ve arrived at a decision.  In the interest of embracing a use-it-up-wear-it-out attitude, and the notion that nothing is precious, I think I’m going to strip that thing down and re-purpose the parts..  despite the limitation that will put on the ultimate result!

Thank you Eric..  you’re absolutely right.  I don’t need any more trophies.  I’ve got the scars and shit bag to remind me.  And really?  do I NEED any reminders?

I fear that some of you may have misinterpreted my intentions.  Finding a way to put a seat on the assless isn’t on the table.  The steering geometry on that thing is designed for stand up riding, not to mention that I can’t abide kludgy solutions..   But the soul of the assless will find a way into the new bike, along with all of it’s useful parts.

(or maybe I’ll change my mind this afternoon..)

    Hooray! That’s great news. Good riddance, dear port! And welcome, recycled bike components, to your new frame? Sounds like a couple of nice ways to mark this new chapter in earnest. :-)
