Happy Memorial Day (odd phrase, that) to all, and in general a happy and peaceful weekend for the rest of our friends and comrades around the world!
The missus and I celebrated last night with a few friends. An unhealthy amount of carbs and sugar was consumed, along with nearly five bottles of wine and one bottle of spirits. The festivities included a fast and furious game of 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon', a movie (From Hell
; passable, but Alan Moore's graphic novel was superior), and much good-natured insult from which none present (and a few who weren't) were immune. Fortunately we made ourselves clean up directly afterward though it were the wee hours of the morning when the party ended, so the apartment doesn't quite look like the site of a frat-house kegger now. Good thing -- I slept badly due to over-indulgence and that damned movie, and have no business getting up as early as I did.
As to cycling opportunities: Zippo.
It rained for a goodly portion of the day yesterday though it's lovely and sunny this morning. All moot; I won't be released to ride for perhaps another week at best. I envy all who get to spend at least a portion of their weekend in the saddle. I'm half-afraid I'll have forgotten how!
Here's to a safe weekend for all, wherever you are!
