    The idea is to pull stuff off before anyone notices. All we had were drivers being annoyed because I was in the middle of the street tending the tag line and some cheerfully funny comments from passing ped's. It helps that we did this on a monday afternoon. The whole thing took 30 mins to prepare and 20 sec's to transit the 9 floors.

    i took a measuring device (shaped like a road bike) out to haines pt this lunch hour in order to facilitate 1/4 mile sprints. for those of you interested in joining the fun in chicago next month, here are two useful 1/4 miles on haines...
    just after the bend/the start of the one-way after the golf course entrance to sign 4
    on the backside, the beginning of the bathroom crappypavement to about sign 20
    (with the signs being the numbered parking lot signs)

    Can't make the pillage, but I'll be doing laps at Hains at fiveish. For those who I haven't met, I'll be on a white track bike with a white helmet and pushing a sooooper-soft gear. Gotta be out by six latest. See you all at polo tomorrow night, what's better, fixie or coastie?

    Whatever you don't want destroyed by Spud or Tink.

    Fixies can reverse,coasties can turn tight without toe overlap.

    Uhm-I think the explanation of apartment you're moving out of means he doesn't have an ongoing issue with the neighbors. Of course, one remembers the cartoons as a child of movers dropping the grand piano during such an effort.

    Until my office moved to Alexandria in April of last year, I used to work accross the street from that apartment building-would've loved to seen that evacuation in progress. Congratulations on the evacuation. Where is the kayak now? How long did the lowering process take?


    Edit: Disregard the duration question-I see it was previously answered.

    Got your message. I was on my way to work at the theatre. I didn't see any bikes in sherwood when I went by. Were you perched in a tree or something?

    i'm always perched in trees! that's what we fairy types do.

    polo is at sherwood, 14 & K NW, 7pm. i think we might need to bring a broom today, though, there are lots of "remnants of spring" about.

    Ahem. Pardon me.

    Dear Dr. Raging Grizzled Old Commuter Man on a Hybrid from This Morning,

    I just want to take the time, in case you're out there somewhere reading this, to really thank you for your thoughtful advice this morning on the ride in to work. Though unsolicited, I will heed your advice to acquire a prescription for Prozac asap because, it seems, I've been going about life totally wrong! And it took an esteemed medical professional like yourself to point it out to me-- firmly, yelling at the top of your lungs at a busy intersection-- and make me realize the error of my ways.

    You see Dr. G., I thought there were rules and common courtesies for riding in a densely populated area, as on a trail with cyclists and joggers, and on roads with more cyclists and cars, etc. But, not so says Dr. Grizzled! When I passed you back on the trail, shoutin out 'on your left,' I was demonstrating my expectations of common courtesy. But then, not two minutes later, you powered up on the 14th street bridge to pass me needlessly out of nowhere (were you trying to impress me? >blush<), *without* saying a word, and thus surprising lil ol me because the trail was narrowing rapidly before us and I thought I had the right of way! I reacted because I was a little taken aback (at what I now realize was your expert maneuver). Sometimes fear for my own safety--I now recognize that to be my delusional depression altering my perception of things-- makes me do that! Mea culpa! I suggested you at least say "on your left" while passing in tight-squeeze situations such as this, when I might fall off my bike into a busy road. And when the morning light glinted in your crazy-with-rage-and-helpful-information eyes and you snapped in reply that I should "adjust my mood," my instinct said, let it go, this old man is nuts!

    Alas, I can be a pill (ha!) and so I couldn't resist following up on your comments when we both stopped at the red light at 14th St. I got the feeling you really seemed to know me, you know? We made a connection. Making it all personal like that when I only tried to give you a road safety tip, ďItís called road etiquette!Ē And then I thought you might have misheard my cheeky, "Have a nice day, sir!!" Because then you started roaring about how there's medication out there for people like me! That gave me pause--gosh, like me? Rly? A crazy man would not rush into such a diagnosis rashly. That's when I realized you had to be a physician-- and a generous one at that, giving free medical advice on the street like you did. I have heard of Prozac, yes. But in the future, I don't think you should yell such personal information as my prescription that loudly. And with your veins bulging and beard grizzling, I thought for a sec you were going to explode. Have you heard of ace inhibitors? What am I doing?! Youíre the expert. Your lucky colleagues and patients!

    As we went our separate way--you, yelling helpful medical tips as you pedaled your panniers off, and me, I can only begin to try to return the favor. Until our chance encounter continues tomorrow morning...
