    hey-O pirates. Last night was funny.
    I am putting a fine 105 brake on my cycle.
    I need a cheater brake/cyclo lever/bmx lever if anyone has any for sale. Otherwise, i am going to tie the cable to the bars and just pull on it.

    Hey, I was gonna come out to Cardozo tonight, but nobody posted a meet up spot. Then I decided to just meet everyone there, until I remembered this article I read in the DC CIty Paper:

    http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/d...rocks0407.html

    If I were riding with the group I wouldn't mind as much, but I ain't taking my chances alone.

    So, no Cardozo for me tonight.

    Now that Julie's moving. "The Law of Conservation of Pirates Employed at City Bikes" (it's an actual law, look it up) has taken effect. I just got hired full time at the Adams Morgan location.

    woo hoo!
    now, give up hope of ever having a break, plan on spending $10 a day on food and coffee, and be prepared to never have clean hands again.

    Congratulations Daibatsusan,
    I didn't even know you were applying. I will send my recommendations over to Alex.
    I was there for two years and though it is crazy in the summer it is also a lot of fun.
    Full time is a whole different world.
    Just look forward to Toledo Sunday Afternoons, Chaos thursday nights, always offer to go for food. Coffee is always good at ten and at four. Go to Tryst but make sure they know you are citybikes. You will get the real service. Get two packs of Schaeffer from North Sea on Thursday around six. Work on your Spanish. Make friends with Jose and the Arrevelo Brothers.
    Euan and Alex are always stressed. Bring Music.
    Learn to handle crazy people.
    Mark likes raw sugar packets from the coffee shops, Paul likes kabob salads from the Astor. So's your mom is the best deli in DC.
    Ep is now the same as former employee discount, so be creative in shopping. One of us usually has the item.
    Drink lots of water.
    Smile and nod. The crazy people will eventually leave and everyone can laugh about it later.
    Get to know the friends of the shop.
    Drink beer.
    Mr. Chens is not very good anymore. North sea is inexplicably better. Martin will argue this.
    When you stack, do it fast.
    Go to the pharmacy bar after work, this is your new home.
    Monday morning sucks, Thursday night is a delight.
    Kevin Costello, Shawn Smith and Sol, do not work there. But they may as well.
    Watch Euan's face when you meet someone new, it is a great indicator of whether that person is a friend or a freak. He knows who everyone is.
    Check I Saw You in CL and citypaper, you will be in there.
    The airhose is outside.
    Offer to sweep.
    Bring music. Make sure music is always playing, when it stops everyone starts to freak out a little bit.
    Have fun, see you thursday.

    you sure that you want to publically post all that, Red? I'd delete at least half. this is the interweb, and that's all public. more appropriate for a pm.

    besides, part of it is wrong, like for example, Shawn now manages the chevy chase store...

    he did when he called me last saturday.

    and you have real people's real names with criticism of them attached to it. posted for the public to see. whether or not they have access to the interweb, someone will end up seeing it and directing them to it. just food for thought.

    Shawn doesn't work there (AM)
    Shawn works at chevy chase, but that is like working at a different store. Whereas he is Shawn, so it is like he is a permanent de facto employee. When he doesn't work there he is often behind the counter and when he does work there he is behind the counter. Other folks from CC don't go behid the counter at AM, and vice versa.

    do you think that, if i asked him on a date through the "contact" area, he'd get it?

    or perhaps we should have a lady pirates' stalking road/plane trip...
