don't you love it when a song/album/show/etc is so good it gives you goose bumps? That doesn't happen nearly enough anymore.

listening to the latest Converge album in case anyone's curious.. maybe not most people's cup 'o tea.

In some societies this would be dealt with overnight, and generally involve the fire dept. Not here though, we're faaaar too civilized for that.

now that is one hell of an idea. Get some fluorescent concrete paint and put it on the sidewalk right in front of his place.

In other news, does no rubber mean unsafe cycling?

I just tried to convince my boss that since it's 5:00 in Newfoundland, I should be able to leave. She didn't buy it.

Dah. Springtime sunshine = terribly long afternoons.

I just got back from MEC and bumped into jeremy/darkmother. I swapped my panniers for smaller ones and he bought a bottom bracket. I wish I didn't have to stay at work right now...

Well here I am at York waiting to write my last exam. So nice out and I get to review Nash equalibriums, Game theory and Condorcet winners. Awesome. What better way to spend the first wicked day of spring. Oh well. BBQ tomorrow shall ease my pain. Ass in chair, meat on grill, coffee in hand. The good life. Ah well, time to go and review The Economy of Public Policy. Crap. Rest all, I shall ponificate on policy making tomorrow.
