    a_lion: til - the guy who does adventure programming for the park district called me today to see if i wanted to join a meeting he's having at a bike shop next week, to talk about organizing rides next year. i guess the park district has a bluetooth system where craig or i would have a microphone, and everyone else would have a single headphone, and we'd talk about... ?? i don't even know. presumably he has ideas. he did a program where you could carve a pumpkin and then shoot it with arrows, so i trust him to have good ideas.


    had that meeting at the bike shop yesterday, and the bike shop is going to expand their duathlon series to include one on park property, do some co-branded bike maintenance classes including very basic repairs using the repair stand thingies installed along our trail (which would be followed by a short, slooow ride led by craig or i), we'll do some guided rides with the headset situation, and they're looking at parks and hoping to find somewhere to do a gravel or fatbike race.
    yay bikes=)That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    That's awesome!

    I'm planning to leave my bike at work tonight so I parked in the (small but adequate-ish) bike cage, inside the One Kendall/Binney St. garage. As I'm walking out I see this magnificence, part of the 399 Binney construction:

    There's this problem at the local food coop where asshole drivers keep tossing their carts in the bike racks instead of putting them away. Tonight as I was locking up this person was walking straight towards me with a cart, they got like 6ft away and I looked up and they made an abrupt 90 degree turn and walked their damn cart right back to the cart storage in the store's entrance, and gave me the stink eye on their way back to their car.

    got a ricotta making program coming up soon at work (that i'm leading) so today i tried making the cheese, plus a beet ricotta hummus, and both were delightful (plus i made pitas at home tonight for the first time)
    also, stewart, that guy that totally shoulda been fired back when he was shouting at my boss and i about being the thought police when we told him he has to stop using certain offensive language, didn't blow up at me when i gave him a verbal warning today (which, despite the name, requires a signature) cuz he totally fucking misread his schedule and didn't come in yesterday, so we weren't open and the animals weren't fed all day. and yes, what i take out of that is somehow the positive that he didn't throw a fit about admitting doing something wrong? god i hope my boss works up to firing him soon (Except not because he's leading a moccasin-making class over the next 8 weeks that 10 people have paid $30 for?)That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    it's 4 sessions, one every other week, does include your moose leather and all the other necessary tools/materials, but generally all our shit is cheap cuz we're tax funded. my ricotta making class is free!That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    Did you use lemon juice to form the ricotta curds, or did you do it with cultures? I've done both, but the lemon juice is so much easier....Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Not quite "love" but today at work I sold a bike to this pretty odd old guy who recently had his bike stolen. He said, "I'm going to die soon, might as well spend money on bikes", then he called the store a while later to say thanks and that he really likes the bike, brakes work great, feels great to ride, etc. but that he'll probably send the bell back in the mail because he can yell louder."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries
