Wherein I announce Winners and Leave a Mysterious Hint About Monday’s Post

03.17.2007 | 9:42 am

A Weekend Note From Fatty: I normally don’t post on weekends, but I have two contests I wanted to announce winners for, and something interesting happened yesterday that I need to write about, haven’t yet written about, but still want to mention, albeit in a confusing and non-helpful way.

You Were Really Nice in the “It’s Nice to be Nice to Dave Nice” Raffle
A big fat hug goes out to everyone who helped Dave Nice by entering the raffle. I was hoping we could raise around $500 for him, and imagined $1000 was the most we’d have any chance at all of raising. But thanks to the very generous nature of cyclists, we raised $1210.00 for Dave (and that’s after Paypal took its chunk out).

You guys rock.

I’ve notified the winners by email. They’ll be getting the awesome prizes donated by the Ads-for-Scwhag advertisers, who have shown — once again — that it’s the small companies that really care about their customers. You can, of course, find those advertisers in my blog sidebar. Give them the love they deserve.

You Guys Think I have No Self Control Whatsoever
In the “Guess my weight after I’ve been on the road for 2 weeks contest,” most of you figured that I would completely self-destruct, self-control-wise. A few of you, however, dared to believe that I’d only gain a pound per week or so.

As it turns out, while I didn’t lose weight on the trip, I also didn’t gain a whole bunch. Yesterday I weighed in at 163.6 pounds, up from 162 pounds when I took off for NY two weeks ago. So the winners of the prize I cannot yet reveal (because I’m still working on getting it made) — each of whom was off by a pound or less — are:

  • Iceman (163)
  • turnonthejets (164.6)
  • jill (164.5)

Winners, be sure to contact me when I announce this new Fat Cyclist product — probably sometime within the next couple weeks.

Pain, Blade, Blood
And now for my confusing and non-helpful hint about what I’ll be posting this monday. It will be about pain, a blade, a great deal of blood, and a trip to the hospital.

Oh, and it will be about riding bikes, too.

    Confusing and non-helpful, huh. And that’s different from your other posts, how exactly? ;-)

    NY huh? I guess I missed that. I’m in NJ, work in NY. Not that the trails would have been rideable in the last few weeks. But the roads sure were nice.

    Oh, man, I hope you are not incapacitated. You picked the wrong weekend to be incapacitated.

    163.6? I’m stunned. What did you accidently leave your stomach in Alpine while you went on your trips?

    just wrap it in gauze. you missed 65 degrees, sunny, and the AF/double suncrest. bummer.

    It’s just wrong to use single blades when shaving your swimsuit area!

    As I am not part of the Challenge I can say this quite truthfully well done on the weight gain control. I can hear the collective moan of the challengers from here.

    I owe you an apology for doubting you. I must have been projecting my own habits onto what I thought would happen to you on your trip. Congratulations on the miniscule weight gain!

    I propose that Monday’s post will describe how you injured yourself riding your bike while towing your lawn mower (hence the blade reference) to speed up the process. As you crossed the teeter, the weight of you and your bike tipped the whole thing forward thus catapulting the lawn mower over your head. As the mower sailed through the air it came to the end of the rope and jerked you off your bike and into it’s upturned blades. I’m pretty sure that would require a hospital visit. It may even require a medivac helicopter ride.

    Does the severed body part count towards weight loss for B7? If so I’m thinking I may go trap my leg under a boulder to lose a quick 30 pounds.

    So is that Jill the famous Up in Alaska Jill? – I’m cheating I know it is. Well done plus well done to Iceman and TurnontheJets (cool name). Nothing like a good simple comp to get the comments in. Some very funny stuff too.

    Ah man………I missed winning by .1 lbs. Couldn’t you have kept some extra lint in your navel when you weighted in.

    man, that hint sounds like an episode of deadwood on hbo.

  13. Comment by turnonthejets | 03.19.2007 | 7:21 am

    Sweet! I’ll drop you an email. When you get the fires stoked in the body it’ll take a while to undo that and for em to slow down I guess.
