I have a bicycle at last

Now that the summer is mostly over, I have a bicycle. I went to the store determined to buy it today. No drawn out 15 days of research to save $50 bullshit. I used to be one of those people that would obsess for weeks on decisions which was such a time waste. Along the same line, I was not going to buy one online, wait forever and then have a box till August when I decided to put it together. Or worse yet put it together and hate it.

I got the bike at Ricks on Allen because I also didn't want to drive to the suburbs on such a nice day. I l know the price is prob a bit hifher but it seemed antithetical to acquiring a bike and honestly they weren't that much above anywhere else when I checked from my phone at the store.

The first one I thought I wanted was a Raleigh route 4.0 19" gold colored bike. It was freakin gold colored and so cute but it was like twice as long as the Raleigh venture 4. The route 4 seemed easier to joy ride for long distance but the venture 4 seemed way better for bumps and stop/start and this is buffalo. Full of stop and go driving and pot holes.

Testing a bike is way worse than test driving a car. With a car terrain is all kinds of similar with a bike it really matters.

In the end I picked the venture 4.0 because you can just run over a curb like nothing and I wanted a bike that will just run over anything and had beefy tires. It also has one of those comfortable prostate sparing, fat seats with the dimple.

Nocciolata at Globe Market

I think this is like the pure nutella that (e:tinypliny) was looking for. The jar is $6.97.

Code Blu Juice Bar on Allen

Finally, something is opening up on the desolate corner of Allen across from Cathode. Its a juice bar called Code Blu. While I am excited about tge potential for something new and tasty, I think that might have been an unfortunate choice in names - considering they are a block away from a massive medical campus whose workers could potentially be a large percentage of customers.

As per Wikipedia:

Code Blue - Generally is used to indicate a patient requiring immediate resuscitation, most often as the result of a cardiac arrest.



I realize they dropped off the "e" but that doesn't come across verbally.

For amusement only

This video game machine at New York Pizza on Allen is so old fashioned. The graphics are about the quality of an intellivision game from the same era but it has a nostalgic feel.

Lowest or the Low

Well, I missed the concert at the town ball room a few months back at the town ballroom and now I am seeing them at the habour. Sadly no one I know even knows who they are. Clearly the crowd up front does.

Dinner last night

I love the grill in the summer. I wish I had a kitchen with a grill and fume hood for the winter.

For the first time I tries cooking the corn in the microwave. Husk and all in the microwave for 2 minutes. Worked really great, little mess, and saved all the vitamins that would end up washed away with the boiling water.

Apple sauce all wrapped up

...because the thing preventing everyone from eating apple sauce was a huge amount of non-recycleable packaging.

Buffalo Outer Harbor Citybration

We went out to the outer harbor sunday night for the final part of citybration. We originally went for the hot air balloon ride but I was not about to pay $15 to go 40 ft up. What's the point of going in a hot air balloon that doesn't even go as high as your house.

They said it had to do with the wind but there was barely any wind for a waterfront location. Maybe, whoever planned it should have thought about that.
