The picture is really funny if I find it I'll post it she looks so pissed off in it. Anyway, the grey beard area is where my dog's head was. Instead of actually attempting to cover it with something which would blend with the background I just used the paint tool to make a ZZ Top-esque beard to make things more umm realistic I guess. And yes that is my head (with a pencil in my ear you may notice as well) if anyone's wondering.

Inevitably someone will probably ask "why" so I'll just field that one now too. My friend and I were having a photoshop contest of sorts.

Actually her picture of her with the Backstreet Boys looked pretty seemless. She probably beat me on execution but in wackiness I totally schooled her.

Ouch. Watch out for hail while riding home.
Those little ice pellets really hurt.
My under eye lids are all bleeding now.

The tailwind kicks ass today. I rode from Parklawn to Strachn along the lakeshore ~4:30 and I was averaging about 40kms/hr with little effort

Sort of South East, but maybe that was just the wind tunnel effect down University Ave.

it doesn't get any easier, you just get up it slower.

It's a little steep given you can get a pair of exustar's at MEC for $79. While not sidis, a season of toronto salt will make sidis not like sidis..

And so goes my PATH system coffee adventure. There must be something in the air down there. Anyone know any decent coffee shops near union station? I'm dying paying 2.50 a cup for these crappy americanos.
if you can make it out to st lawrence market i think there is a rostery in the basement. not even a starbucks near by? always good in a pinch.

Full snow grippyness, for when you really must put a foot down.
Or, *shutter* walk/push through it, because that sucks. *sigh* I wish we had snow.

*edit* is it me or do they not look terribly comfy at the ankle?

Think Blue Mountain still let us ride the hill, they are desperate for funds..

Theres a ton of starbucks nearby, as well as second cups and timothy's. There is a little cafe downstairs in St. Lawrence Market but it takes me 10 minutes to walk there and 10 minutes back which is a little long to just grab a coffee. I should get one of the electric powered bialetti moka pots for my desk.

I was so jealous of my friends who signed up for the U of T ski and snowboard club. They got season's passes and a bus ride to blue and back twice a week for around 350 dollars. But in retrospect I'm laughing because they haven't been up there once!

Does anyone know of a good welder in Toronto who can do a quick reinforcement on a steel bike? Ideally as close to downtown as possible!
