Eyefloater, the straps are Silvas.

I don't know where I got "A" from ...

Also got my hub rebuilt. There was a detonated bb as I suspected. If I can go get groceries, eat, get across town in time, I'll be there for Critical Vacuum. Don't wait for me if I'm not there at 9:30.

awww.. I was just sitting at home bored last night at 9:30. I gotta check it here more often, apparently.

See you guys at 1:30 at Moonbean. Rob: I'll have your crank bolt jobby with me. If you favor relates to CK parts, I probably can't help you. She's getting these things under the guise of them being for herself, and she's already picked up two in the last 6 weeks.

Those beer cups were insane. They looked like chinese take-out containers. Thanks for the ride, you guys, I had a blast.

operator: ugh. I know! I realized about 5 minutes after we split. I wound up going for a ride around high-park... it was too nice to go directly home.

I can't believe the one year anniversary of this thread was just the three of us. You people are all lame!

Not lame, from Saskatchewan. Even after living in Ontario for 14 years I still can't get used to daylights savings time. Or the fact that your drivers licence expires on your birthday rather than at the end of your birthmonth.

Yeah, weird about the bomb in the Timmy Ho's. I just read the blurb on the stars page.

Apparently it was a literal "suicide bombing" ... but who knows? Hopefully more info will come out in the news this week. The idea of a bomb going off a few blocks away from where my gf works is more than a bit unsettling to me.

PS. Cavit8, lemon/blueberry scone action was champion.
