Should ride DT where it's safe.
Ill Mitch....from the sounds of it this morning, if you were hurling all night, I fear fever might be the least of your worries.
Is it stomach flu?

ah Bach.....
You know some promoter would be well within their brilliance if they setup a Diamond/Gold/Platnum/Indian Rubber Sprint Booth at the bike show. Just occurred to me. Now my Diamond Sprint bud will be upset with me for not thinking of this sooner.

Yo duppy you coming later to the show?

Meebe I can make it tomorrow after all. But will I be able to resist the pull of new shiny things? Do need a new crank though. Could be worse, put me near a kitchen store and I go crazy.

Will try to be at Moonbeam for 9.

New incarnation of the s/s as well, bad pic, sorry. Crappy rogers phone.

"sissy-boy" That's the best you can do, And you call yourself a chef. Insults are part of my interview process when I hire people. That is can they take the insults I dish out. That's what working at Siegfrieds does to you.

Speaking of which how is the food there. Friends of mine want me to go there with them. Having 'worked' there in the past I have no desire to ever return. although I do have fond memories of doing deserts there and buggering off for three hours at Betty's instead, then returning to serve some kind of ice cream I made.

Oddly enough for it to come up right now as the one and only time I was at Betty's was for my friend Sabine's celebration after she (successfully) defended her PhD dissertation, and it's her husband who asked me to be in his band this week. Seemed like a pretty cool place!

Didn't realize the safety meeting was for after work! I'm a very safe person so I actually have another conflicting safety meeting that I must attend. Maybe we can assure that everyone is adequately safe after the bike show tomorrow?

What a shallow ripoff of the CIOCC scheme: card pips in the cranks... bleah...

And Betty's is a favourite drinking hole. Exceptional crispy wings...mmm....so crispy.

Although I too feel distinctly unsafe, I will likely not make the safety meeting as I'm busy cramming SAS code in my head. Mayhap I will feel safe enough to venture out.

Thursday October 26th

See two Canadian premieres about traffic problems and solutions in big
cities:

- "Contested Streets: Breaking New York City Gridlock"
(Denmark/France/USA/UK, 2006, 56min - Canadian premiere) - a film about
New York City street life prior to the introduction of the car and, a
century later, learning from London, Paris, and Copenhagen in reclaiming
our streets as vibrant public spaces.

- "A Conversation With Enrique Peñalosa" (USA, 2006, 12min - Canadian
premiere) - an interview with the mayor of Bogota about his dedication to
introducing bicycles and bicycle culture to his city

Following the films will be a panel discussion with Clarence Eckerson Jr
(Filmmaker, "A Conversation With Enrique Peñalosa"), Constance Exley
(Planners For Tomorrow) and other activists and thinkers about public
space and transportation.

Thursday October 26th, 7pm
Bloor Cinema, $9
