Hicks Um Um Um

I almost passed on Donny's Hicks both sides and Mt. Um ride today, not because of the hot temperature but because I was reading a torrid article in the ever engaging J of Homotopy and Related Structures.  Just suppose X is a projective toric scheme defined over a ring R ...  like I know what any of this means.

What if!  Oh my Gosh, the suspense was killing me.  Might there be a splitting result for the algebraic K-Theory of projective toric schemes?

What a nail biter.  A cliff hanger.  Sure ....  So, I put the article under my pillow, to await for bed time and future chitchat at cocktail parties.  Off to I went to join fellow cyclists for the ride.

Talk about hot and steamy.  Okay, it wasn't that hot but it was warming up.  I had to pause to cool down on Hicks (the shorter side) before continuing to Mt. Um.  Lookey, the end is getting nearer.

I huffed and I puffed.  Yeah, I made it up Mt. Um with only one quick stop on account of the fact that there were these 2 male rangers that I just knew wanted to hear all about toric schemes.

Not sure how many people did the entire ride.  Dr. G and I decided to pass on the other Hicks.  He treated me with a diet coke at the end.  That sure hit the spot.  We managed to do 24.59 miles.

Good for you for finishing Mt. Umunhum. I turned around about half a mile past the Sierra Azul boundary just because I was already hot and out of water. I had a rootbeer and a Rockstar at the end though!
