Bicycle heaven

It's an amazing museum in Pittsburgh, dedicated to classic bikes, mostly cruisers from the 1950's/60's. It's a little west of the Mexican War streets on the north shore, in an old industrial area. Ironically probably the least bike friendly section of Pittsburgh I've seen.



You can tell it's kind of like the basement at Rick's but somehow they found some money to arrange them very nicely.

The random rare bikes they had were insane. They had a 5 seated tandem from the Monkees, a mountain bike with a single sided fork, a bike someone rode literally around the world, and this street-legal fiberglass tricycle car that allegedly got 100mpg in the 1980's.

The weirdest part of the whole museum were the non sequitur jokes scattered around the building. For example. there was a baby doll in a cage with this sign attached.

Or this dummy in a trunk.

Or this neon hippie-bike-part-dance-party room. Which starts blasting this eurodance song "God is a woman" as soon as you walk in.

Christmas cookies

We went over to the hotel my family was staying at for a festivus celebration and some Christmas cookie decorating.

The designs stayed pretty abstract.

Emily's graduation

Congratulations to my sister Emily on graduating college magna cum laude from Duquense. It's almost impossible for me to believe that I only have one sibling left in school.

Top of city hall


I got (e:Paul) to go on a walk with me on one of our Fridays off. I was hoping to see a wall of lake effect snow over the southtowns like you see in the super dramatic pictures, but it was more like a distant band of grey.

In order to get into city Hall now you have to through airport style security and take everything out of your backpack for a scanner.

Later Paul and I walked over to lunch at Casa Azul on Genesee. it's in the same fake shipping container building where Dog E Style was before. The one vegetarian okay was taco and way overpriced, but they also served this amazing hot drink that tastes like vanilla pudding.

Snowstorm inside


On the other hand, snow is not so good inside. During the whiteout storm, the side parlor blew open and all this snow came in. (e:Paul) discovered it when it was so cold in the hall. so I shop vacced it and swept a bunch outside, since it was too cold for him.

Luckily I close the pocket door and shut the furnace vent in that room, so it didn't have a chance to melt and ruin the floor.

Snow is magical

Snow is magical, especially the first snow. After we got back from a happy rave time with (e:uchina) and (e:yesthatcasey), I walked up and down Linwood for about an hour. I love when it's silent and the cars are slowed and silenced by the snow! Especially at night.

Arduino again

Out of boredom I decided to pull the Arduino out of its box and start playing with it again. It's much easier to get up and running sitting up on a desk instead of on the ground, next to the fireplace. Plus Fedora even has the Arduino IDE in its repository now.
What should I make?

Japanese curry


I took a cue from a vegan mom blog and Made this Japanese curry with (e:terry). Except I left the apple, syrup and ketchup out, added more curry spices, and didn't spend any time pickling. delicious with some pan fried tofu, cabbage, and an apple on the side.

Creepy crows

The biggest murder of crows I've ever seen. Hundreds if not thousands between Elmwood and Main around Ferry.

I was so freaked out walking underneath them - mostly because of the shit. (e:paul) kept stomping on the ground, the crows would flock in the sky and it would sound like it was raining with all the droppings.

I wonder why there are so many this year. I feel like if they decided to gang up, they could probably take over the city.
