    I can't come, I already biked back home (left at 4 something, got back 7 something; I was posting from my friend's apt earlier today on Elm) to beat the rushhour traffic. Man, you guys are right (suburban drivers are the worst): an suv full of teens driven by a teenage girl could not decide whether to tailgate or pass me on 16th Ave just west of Warden Ave in Markham (if you don't feel safe passing me in the same lane why don't you use the adjacent lane? and if you don't know the limitations of your vehicle you shouldn't be driving); and then a someone yelled out a minivan on Warden Ave just south of Stoufville Rd(wtf?). Oh, I saw an Asian guy (who at first I thought was operator, but then I realized I think I saw him on the FFL ride), biking southbound on Yonge near St Clair.

    This Pollen is making my EYES ITCH!

    It's too late to respond to those posts that sparked a thought, so I'm just posting for no reason at all. That is all.

    Did anyone go meet up to ride? I had another kitten false alarm. DAMMIT! They'll probably all become strays and I will be forever alone.

    Perhaps I'm wrong here, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that has 0% to do with being able to develop on new land and 100% due to the fact that yuppies want lofts.

    Sorry about that! I waited for you on Bloor a block or so away from where you got stuck at that red light, then just before it turned green I got impatient and started riding again and you got the next red too. I gave up on waiting and decided I'd try and catch up with the others. I thought I could catch up quickly and get everyone to hold up, but I didn't full catch the pack again until basically Broadview and by then I assumed you were a zillion miles away. Plus you knew where we were going..

    Sure, but I'd remove the hardshell and paint it seperate like, buncha paints will melt styrofoam, and the hardshells are often kept on only by a thin strip of tape round the rim, easy to remove and put back on, no gaurantee on any advice past present or future, all warranties voided, etc etc I almost never follow my own advice and highly recommend skepticism of all sounds in my immediate vicinity.

    speaking of helmets.. Every now and then I see someone (or perhaps more than one person) riding in one of those Specialized helmets that didn't have the hard shell. What were they called? The sub-six or something? I remember seeing ads for those things like 12-13 years ago. Have they made them recently? Or is this guy wearing something that probably has all the cushioning of a bag of eggshells? (helmets DO have a life span, crash or no crash)

    Yeah, me and my neighbour feed the neighbourhood strays, and our favourite one had kittens about 2.5 months ago. Since they've been weaned we've been trying to catch them... we finally found their hiding place but they freaked out today when we tried to grab them. Will attempt again. So cute, but skittish.

    Re: painting the helmet, I don't think you can remove the hardshell on most modern helmets, since the foam is moulded right into the shell to better prevent the shell coming off in a crash and letting the foam catch on stuff.

    i've always wanted a pet, but my parents never let me.
    I don't know about painting helmets. but I would stay away from spraypaints cause they eat away at plastic.

    you're brave; i wouldn't pick a fight with a stray cat. we found a stray kitten in our shed last summer and we were feeding it for weeks before it dissapeared (re: probaby died). got to get them young or else they become feral, and scrappy to boot.

    got my letter from chef school today about orientation week, tying to get me "used to the college life"; i'm feeling a bit like rodney dangerfield in "back to school".

    anyone do CV? my plans fell through, i could have gone after all, crap.
