  • 11:08 Wow. It's amazing how much better my bike runs when it actually has enough air in the tires. Of course, a flat tire made me late to work... #
  • 11:35 I switched from silicone to foam ear-fittings on my earphones. A little awkward, but it brings the already-excellent audio quality better. #

The sincerest form of flattery

As I think I mentioned on here, several months ago, I bought a bike rack and installed it in my parking spot at the apartment complex. Rakeela and I don't have a car, so our bikes are our vehicles, and we're allowed to put "appropriate vehicle parking apparatuses" in our parking spot; we installed it first and asked permission later, but the apartment managers didn't object in the slightest and preferred that solution to the "park the damn thing under the stairs" approach. (The fire department really prefers the "bike rack in the parking spot" approach, for obvious reasons.)

I've noticed that within the last week, one of our across-the-street neighbors (or at least a nearby neighbor with a parking spot just on the other side of the complex's driveway loop) has also purchased and installed a bike rack in their parking spot. This amuses me.

Stupid warning du jour

"WARNING: To avoid risk of burn or electric shock, unplug toaster before removing crumb tray." --printed on the bottom of the crumb tray, facing the inside of the toaster (and therefore the heating mechanism)
