father furher don't be mad at me!
great weather today, decided i wanted a bikeventure to the beach.
i was a good girl and went to school first then hustled home to get my two wheeled vehicle. i checked the tire pressure (good) and gave it a once over (bad). both of my spoke cards are gone! ok, i think i knew this but forgot until today. i'm also missing both of my bar end caps (when did this happen?) and my bell (WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN! :U AHHHH!). pauvre vélo! i'm also missing one bungee cord for my rack (but i stole one from my dad) and some plastic near the rear gear (but that's no biggie). and my rear reflector is cracked (sun is evil to plastic). but other wise everything is fine!
i guess this is all to be expected because my bicycle lives outside and it rolls every where in every kind of weather. but i was pretty mad about my missing bell and slightly disheartened by everything else. on the other hand, my ridding buddy
was in fine shape.
revenge was to be had, though. i was transitioning from a bike lane to no bike lane street and decided to hop on to the sidewalk instead (bad). on the sidewalk i went to the next crosswalk and had to get off my bike to press the crossing signal button. forgot i was using the toe straps (foot is connected to the pedals) on the left side so i swing my leg off the right side and try to take my left foot off and instead did an awkward sideways fall. how embarrassing. the bike was ok... because it fell on my foot >___< and you might have noticed there is not a lot of meat on the top of your foot... it's a little bruised but not as damaged as my pride. i guess i deserved it, sorry bicycle! i will replace your missing parts soon!
anyway, rode my bike to magic island. finished up my chemistry notes on a picnic table
went for a dip
then did some calculus studying while i dried off.
i changed (if i was a superhero, my special power would be changing outfits in public. i am a master of this!) into dry stuffs and then biked home. i think the bike ride was more enjoyable than the beach.
can't wait for summer then i can do this all the time!!
making more progress on 11/22/63. the suspense is mounting. texas sounds scary and ghetto (although in real life i'm sure it's a perfectly nice state). i am scared of the jimla. i miss swing dancing.
I MISS SWING DANCING. T___T
george (or well, i guess stephen king. geez, i am so engrossed in the story that i imagine george is telling the story) specifically mentions In the Mood, a quintessential hop song,
and hellzapoppin, an amaaaaazing crazy fun dance (it even has its own movie)
i think the last time i lindy hopped was... 4 or 5 years ago. T___T this book makes me miss it so much! i'm going to see if they still have swing at ong king... i really want to go!
hungry for more, i looked for the ultimate lindy hop showdown (ULHS) videos from this year. best of the best! doesn't it make you want to go dancin? :) i love to watch the jack and jill rounds- shows just how good these dancers are! pulling all the stops even with random partners!! they have great musicality.
super crazy tosses:
i've probably posted this before, but this is one of my favorites:
falling asleep writing this... until next time!
INSTANT TIME MACHINE!
