Speaking of deep dark secrets, I had a terribly practical idea awhile back.

You can destroy at least some of those guys on a fixed gear. I'm hitting that up on Saturday with my new build!
Also: Does anyone know where to get red salmon 'Kool Stop' pads? For shimano holders/refill type.

Jammer: they don't have the holder type refiills (not the V-brakes either), just the grey compound threaded brake blocks.

I don't think I'm terrible well geared up for a race, sooo I may offer up my body as a pylon or possibly be a rolling obstacle.

Ugh why does everything have to happen on the same day. The Board Meeting is riding a couple hundred kids down Yonge, I have a party to go too AND Global Gutz is going bah sometimes I wish didn't exist within linear time.

That is all

Udupi palace vegetaria (1460 Gerrard), one of the many places to eat in the fabulous East. I'm off tonight to scope out some sushi and then off to do some reading at the Tango Palace Cafe, home of very good espresso and very large Nanaimo bars. On my fixed gear.

Keith, I'll let you know re: helping out at the Gutz. My lawyer has advised me against taking part in anything competitive for the next seven years. Maybe TJ and I can get a rope and be a "flying guillotine" obstacle. That'd be fun.

Operator, I thought I saw you on College today wearing a bright yellow T-shirt. Was that you?

I mentioned a veggie place? I've probably mentioned lots of veggie places... any more clues? How recent was it? I had tasty veggie food at Boom Shiva on Queen W @ Dufferin for the first time this Summer, so that could have been it.

That's happening this Saturday? Damnit! I've been wanting to photograph that for a couple of years, but I keep missing it.
