i think so. and then the last thing i remember was the sound of a swinging night stick...

he did give me a thorough talking-to though, as if i was some eight year old who forgot to zip up his coat before recess. on a bit of a power trip if you ask me.

Environmental cleanup eh? It looks like they're building a soccer field to me. No more parties anymore! (unless you're having a soccer party)

qqy- I was down at Queen/Don valley trail yesterday and the sign says it opens again in may. I'll believe it when I see it though.

great party yesterday stephen! You've got the bbq skills down pat. It was certainly a safe event.

ps. duppy, I bought a front brake for my fixed gear yesterday but I thought you might want it instead as it would really suit your ride. let me know if you want to trade or something.

Just spoke with Toby and he says aside from some road rash on his shoulder, all is well and then he asked me if I was riding today.

He did mention that the night got crazier after the crash and we all split up. But Dan was there so if there're any "midgets brandishing garden hoses wearing lederhosen swearing at nuns in swahili" stories to be told I'll leave them to him.

I'm just cleaning up the last remnants of yesterday but I could be convinced to ride for sure if other people are heading out.

You all had a better night than me. I got hit by a car and then spent most of the night at the police station.

I am now going out to buy a new helmet. Ride safe out there, folks.

Just under $700 with taxes in. I changed the specs above as well. I also have a fanless psu and nearly silent aftermarket cpu/gpu coolers so I won't need to buy those. (Noise pisses me off greatly).
