I'm not that choosy anymore. As long as you don't play bass and you know enough musicians to form some sort of casual-jamming-group, I'm happy.

I ran into Franek (sp) again this morning, and was riding with a bass on his back.. so it made me realize that perhaps I could use one social-niche to tap into another.

another in my "I hate other cyclists" series: I was riding home and some dude on a fix was riding super slowly in the bike lane on Hoskin Ave in U of T. I get a chance to pass him, so I do. Then he rides proceeds to ride right on my ass for like 2km getting a free ride into the headwind. What a dink.

Turn around, throw a bunch of tacks on the ground then output 2000+ watts into the drivetrain.

ditto on the sugoi toque from urbane. And I also have one of those fleece "neck warmer" tubey things from MEC. I like that because it keeps the draft off my neck, and I can also pull it up around my mouth if the beard-insulation-factor is too low.

Also, I can't remember the colour of the bike. Black maybe? The guy was wearing one of those backpacks with the roll down top. Oh, and I have a black/dark grey/light grey timbuk2 bag, so if you were on my ass maybe you'd remember that.
