Boy Wonder Status Report

Some folks have been asking me how work is proceeding on the Wonder Cycle. Well, right now it’s not proceeding very much. BW still needs to buy a bunch of little parts before he can really get down to work. For the time being, he has been going up to New Castle just to clean parts of the bike off, and to practice riding it. (He is making progress in that area, anyway.) Meanwhile, he haunts eBay Motors. So far he’s gotten some new handlebars and a body piece that covers the battery.

Boy Wonder is home today to do his share of the spring cleaning, which consists of renting a carpet cleaner and cleaning the one carpeted room we have in our house. It’s funny to watch BW do housework. First, he has to select what music he’s going to listen to while he works. Usually, in the time it takes him to select just the right cds, he could have just gotten the work done. It’s inefficient, but I suppose it’s kind of cute, though he picks out Echo & The Bunnymen too much for my tastes. For hard labor, I always like Johnny Cash, to get that ‘working on a chain gang’ mood going. Oh well, as long as it’s not The Smiths, I can’t complain.

    I think it is a man thing. LK is the same way. Very inefficient at the domestic thing but just be grateful that BW like LK is even willing to do any of it. *grins*

    Music while doing housework/yardwork is a MUST..

    And yes it does take longer to select the music than it takes to do the actual work. The iPod has reduced that time greatly. Not sure if its a good or bad thing.
