It’s Saturday, and all that really means to me is that there are ten times as many people wandering the streets looking for some sort of entertainment. I think I like having the weekdays off for now. I have the trails all to myself.
Tried the biking thing again today. I was still a little sore from a winter of not, but the will seems to still be there. Unlike other places I have lived, here I think people actually care if you cycle in the correct place. (ie. on the sidewalk is bad) And get this, there are actually bike lanes on the paths. Not just a yellow line that indicates where you should sort-of-if-you-feel-like-it be, but actually in a lot of places divided paths with signs pointing which way to and not to go.
I did the False Creek Seaside loop this morning. It took about an hour. Lots of hills and lots of biking down the side of the road with cars flying by at 60 kph inches from me and my invincibility helmet!
I think I might actually be able to justify buying one of those little mirrors if I’m going to be doing much more of that roadside stuff.
Okay, so if you’ve been reading you know that Broadway is this street close to my apartment. I work on Broadway. Well, I will be working on Broadway.
Umm…. I was going to say something here, other than the fact that I walked down it again today, but I guess that’s all I’ve got. Wow! Am I inspired or what? Oh, I did spend some time perched in Chapters. Very cool.
I watched this HBO comedy special on Larry David, the guy who produced Seinfeld. The guy is a nut case. Now, I’m not too sure if this was a spoof or not. Probably not. But the guy is a moron. The premise of the show is that this is his big lead up to getting back into stand-up. They follow him around with a camera and check out his life in the weeks leading up to the big show. This guy is like a real life George Costanza. Somehow I don’t think this is a coincidence.
Did I mention that its t-shirt weather here?
