did my volunteer bike deliveries today; about ten minutes in it started to bucket down rain in a serious, ladies and gentlemen start building your arks, sort of way. i was soaked down to my skin within the first three or so minutes. on the one hand, at least i wasn't dying of heat-stroke like last week, and after a few minutes it's not like i could be an more drenched. on the other hand, i think my clothes gained ten pounds in water, and it's not my ideal to have rain water that's washed the roads pouring down my back, and also everyone starts driving like they fell on their heads before they got in the car. ah well, i'm home, showered, mostly dry, and not run over. i'm a creature of simple pleasures after all...

i am queen of the bicycle!!!
cycled home from work this afternoon; 40k in about 2hrs. i am well pleased. also, people who open their doors into traffic without first looking? first up against the wall when the revolution comes.

so watching the opening on an episode of "fringe" where we meet a bike courier. first though? no biker worth their salt would lock up on a bench (because it's a good way to get your lock cut and/or your bike vandalised) and also, would not lock just the frame, rather than the front wheel also (because it's a good way to get your front wheel theifed). second thought? CPR on an adult is 15 compressions to 2 breaths (the guy in the tv is doing 5 to 1, which is child CPR), and also, he stops after only two cycles - weak dude, weak.

is this why other people do not like to watch things with me and call me a know-it-all? perhaps, but if it's wrong to yell at the fictional people for getting things wrong, than baby, i don't want to be right.
