Cleaning up the porch

We finally finished cleaning up the aftermath of halloween. Our front porch looked so frat house-y. I couldn't believe how much I found in the bushes.

Mostly clean now.

I also had to put some of the pumpkins in the compost. My feelings exactly.

Allergy Pride


I saw this sticker on the back of a car on Allen - I realize people have serious allergies but it reminded me of the allergy pride parade in Portlandia.

Google Fit

The Google Fit app came out the other day and is a million times better than the S Health app that just counts your steps. The app keeps track of all activities and times and durations, including bike rides, and also can pull data from other fitness apps.

The weird part is it records the locations of the activity but only shows you a circle containing the beginning and end points. They obviously record the exact location but don't show it. I wonder if its to keep people from being reminded they're tracking themselves 24/7.

A very spoopy Hollaween

It was absolutely insane. I think there had to be over 150 people who came by the end. The music was awesome, so many people got to meet and catch up, and I didn't see a single person having a bad time. Full on debauchery.

I wanted to be a puppy but had nowhere enough time. So I became Michael Phelps. Just add goggles, (e:paul)'s swim suit and ready to go.

Even the Buffalo bike party came and made us a stop on their party tour.

Thanks to everyone who made it out and made it super spoopy.

Savers thrift store

While doing some last minute Halloween shopping with (e:paul) and (e:flacidness), we came across this awesome new thrift store in the old Rosa's plaza at Sheridan and the Boulevard. It was huge, super clean and had a ton of decent clothes. I would have gotten some if we didn't have too many. There even was this guy buying a really nice road bike when we got there.

The only gross part was they were constantly spraying air freshener around the store.

In contrast, we stopped at Michael's before and it was full of brand new garbage. Somewhere in the world, people are producing plastic fruit destined for the landfill.

Petrified scooter

While moving the server back into the basement with (e:paul), I cleaned up a few cobwebs with a stick. Like some sort of disguting cotton candy, I wrapped it around a stick. Somehow I found this petrified scooter who managed to get caught in a web.

Biketober fest and the beer bike

On Wednesday, (e:terry) and I made it out to Go Bike's Biketober fest at the new Flying Bison brewery in Larkinville. We met up with the usual bike people - I also got to talk to two of the bike and ped engineers for the city. Apparently they had heard about my winter biking and were really interested in hiring me.

Outside, the new Buffalo beer bike was out giving rides. It's a lot like the ones in Portland and Germany - a driver serves drinks to ten or so people who pedal and ride the bike. The max speed is only 5 mph but it's so freaking awesome. Sadly they were done giving rides by the time we saw it.

Empty boxes

(e:terry) ordered his Chun-Li costume off party city's website. They thought this box was reasonable for a flat, unbreakable costume:

Cemetery bike ride


Tuesday was a super nice day and probably the last one for a while. So (e:Paul), (e:terry) and I cut out of work to fit in a bike ride. Fall color mode was full on.
