    Isn't Zehr's a supermarket? I mean, not that I'm above having a party at a supermarket or anything.

    Queen STILL has some nastiness to it. Anyone been past there? Cops have it taped off one block east of Beverly, bike lying in the streetcar tracks, wires look to be down, I didn't see if the streetcar was still there after an hour as I rode back on Adelaide. Unfortunately I fear we may have another fatality. I'd love to be wrong.

    I would just like to say that A Silver Mt. Zion is coming to town, the last time I saw them play multiple people broke down during 13 Angels Stand Guard Round Your Bed. A good time is sure to be had by all.

    Controller.Controller is coming too, and The Mountain Goats...and The French Kicks...maybe moving away from Toronto isn't such a hot idea...

    Edit: got my grammar on

    Zehr's is indeed a supermarket. They were one of Robin's sponsors- I think they're doing the food and stuff and having the shindig in a back room of some sort. So who's coming with me?

    Damn there's no way I can do Friday, *I hang my head in shame*. Robin's ride is nothing short of incredible, I'm bummed at missing the shindig. I'm hoping to be able to click glasses *big ones* with him at some point, as well as those FFLifers from here.

    What would the route up be? Friday promises to be wall to wall cars.

    I'll totally ride it if others will, I have no idea how to get that far north but it should be more then possible.

    Coming back will be interesting though....

    I'm taking a bus up. I was already going up for a different party, so I'm stoked that (as hoped) Robin's shindig fits into my plans.

    She's going to two parties in Barrie, what are the chances these would coincide?

    Barrie is Ontario's new hotspot, didn't you know? You must be getting old to be so out of the loop (zing!).

    Unfortunately I will be a no show as I'll be out of the province. Back for CM though, hopefully.

    Weird! The firewall was blocking BF all morning and I thought I was screwed for time wasting, but then I just starting shunting it through google translation, but that stopped me from posting. And now it works again all of a sudden. I think some IT guy is playing tricks on me.

    Also for some reason 'Ill Mitch' is simplified Chinese for 'Chicago hurricane'... Go figure.

    Hola from Argentina all! It´s been a while so i thought i´d drop some bike-related observations here because i have no one to share them with here. first off let me say that my desicion to not bring a bike was, i think, a wise one as i would probably be dead and buries if i tried to ride a bike in Buenos Aires. i have never in my life seen people as insane on the roads as the drivers here. firstly, there are no stop signs so crossing an intersection involves looking both ways and sprinting if you see a car. they also don´t pay attention to the lane divisions so you´ll typically see a cab lane splitting between a bus and another car then stop diagonally to get a fare. there are bikes here, yes. most of them are fat tired cruiser types with coaster brakes and super wide handle bars, or cargo bike with a front wheel smaller than the back and a sort of funky front kickstand the supports a heavy duty front rack. most of these bikes are used for deliveries, so it´s not unusal to see a bike like this with a basket the size of small desk filled with break, market bound on a weekend morning. also most of the city´s pizza (of which there is lots) is delivered in the same manner.
    i haven´t seen many bike messengers, but there are a few that use the aforementioned style bike for small deliveries but most of this type of work is done on motorbikes as it never snows here. so far i´ve only seen one or two ¨road¨bikes, a coulple of carbon framed ones out in the country side but mostly they´re old steel frames with mid level parts and those crappy old SIS rear mechs which seems to be all people car get down here. anyone with money to buy a bike it seems buys a mountain bike, even to ride on the street. sadly, no fixies here either.
    i´m looking forward to getting home and back on the bike. i´ll post when i get back and i´ll need to go out for some hard rides to get into some sort of shape again. five weeks of red meat, wine and pastries does not do a body good (although the wine is cheap which is good. a very nice table wine can be had for the equivalent of $2 canadian and a nice ¨vintage¨bottle starting at about $10). i´m freezing my ass off here; i hope you´re all warm and toasty!
