even the slightest amount

i'm stuck in boston due to the weather. while it's only drizzling outside, even the slightest amount of precipitation greatly detracts from the motorcycle experience and so i'm going to wait until the weather clears before i depart. anxious.

you may have noticed that i missed last wednesday's day of cake as i was busy preparing for the upcoming trip. i must unfortunately postpone the day of cake until i return to boston as i will be away from facilities and equipment essential to building cakes.

i've completed a few of my missions.

. learn to play 'dueling banjos': 100% [i don't have the speed yet, but i'm close. need to find a guitar player. gigantic thanks to my parents for my banjo birthday present.]

. heal the broken stator in for.great.justice: 100% [already mentioned in the 17 may 2007 press release, gigantic thanks to josh for helping with the repairs.]

. find my bicycle and celebrate with a midnight ride: 100% [gigantic thanks to sky for giving me his two wheeled terror.]

you've been great and we've been megadeth.
