So long, trusty steed
But anyways I wanted to write about my bike. Around a month and a half back on a Fwednesday night ride, my poor Trek FX 7.1 bit the dust. The rear drop out snapped right off at the axle! Only 8 years old - I guess I might have killed it by pack mule-ing groceries.
Here it is in it's final moments, looking undignified.
It was my first real bike and first real purchase that took me to my first job, on my first dates, around at school and everywhere!
Here's baby-faced me with it in 2012:
Luckily I was able to find a warranty claim on it with Trek. They sent me back a new Trek FX 1. I thought it was time to move on to a touring bike though, so I traded it in and now I am riding this beautiful Surly Trucker.
Drop handlebars and a steel frame have changed my life - same weight as my old bike and it doesn't even flinch at a pothole or a full load of groceries. I've already ridden to Niagara Falls on it with (e:terry).

Yesterday (e:terry) spotted a snowy owl on top of our garage. She is so cute. I love the way her head just rotates around. I'd prefer if she would stay away from our yards rabbits and mice though and stick to something veggie.

DJ Venom at Dnipro
Not many showed up because of the snow but it was worth it. I don't think I've ever danced so hard in one hour. I also think it was the most sober I've been at a rave, (e:paul) and I split one skunky Polish beer.
Strangely enough, I was listening to DJ Venom's music on youtube today and came across his webshow. It turns out he's the brother of Kim, from Matt and Kim (also awesome).
The other djs' sets were awesome too. We ran into our crazy rave friend Lisa, who gave us a saucer and told us that "the night is going to get saucy"
