    If a bunch of strangers showed up at my door brandishing bottles of scotch I would have to invite them in.

    I took a spill tonight at King and Bathurst. An SUV did a u-turn right in front of me and I barely dodged it; I had to turn into the curb and I hit it and bounced off. No damage at all to me or the bike but the elastic thingy on the little turtle light I use in the rear broke. Bummer. The funny thing is that it was about midnight and the SUV had no lights at all, not even day-time running lights, making me think it was someone up from the states who isn't really used to Toronto driving. And yeah, no signal of course.

    I had two bottles of vodka in my pack which would have really pissed me off if they broke but nope, they are fine

    Check that store just north of Pho Hung on the west side of Spadina, they have them. It is the store with all the baskets and kitchen-ware out in front, they have everything in that store at very cheap prices. A friend of mine bought a whole bunch of Hienkel knives there for half the cost that most of the majors price them at.

    your first stop should be Tap Phong (360 Spadina, south of College); high end models will cost you a whopping $5, the cheap one's $2. Both work fine. Enjoy.

    Makes me feel better. Mine broke as I was installing the light and I felt like the dumbest klutz for it.

    The funny thing is that it was about midnight and the SUV had no lights at all, not even day-time running lights, making me think it was someone up from the states who isn't really used to Toronto driving. And yeah, no signal of course.
    Yikes!

    Well that's good, I froze my ass off at CM. The drivers were unusually pissed as well. Never seen that much yelling out of cars.

    Yes, so much for the half-life of the holiday spirit. Riding back along College from Wes's place was interesting last night. A run through Little Italy with all the chi chi restaraunt/club folks posing on the sidewalk or driving like pinheads with their gump-mobiles. Props to those who came to Wes's and sipped the scotch. Very yummy and we'll have to do it again.

    Glad you're okay jet.

    That's the Natrel rink we go to. It's the closest rink to us. Less crowded too.

    Thanks guys, I am glad I am okay too

    I should probably run a front brake for emergencys like this, how is fixed with a brake? It still takes longer to stop right? It would just for a control thing I am guessing.
