Went biking this morning. There were hardly any cars on the roads at 7 a.m., so I could leisurely practice using the left turn lane instead of crosswalks, navigating, etc. without the additional pressure of trying not to get hit by taxis. :-) And because there were very few pedestrians on the Martin Goodman, I could ride hard for bits (David taught me about sprinting on a bike), which was fun. Major clouds of little bugs along the lakefront in parts,'s a bit disconcerting when they start hitting your face (yuk). On Wednesday I asked David if he ever had problems with bugs flying in his mouth when he was biking. He replied, in typical David-style, "Well, my mouth isn't open as often as some people's." Hm...I wonder how difficult it would be for me to secretly carry a water balloon in my fanny pack? >:-)

Going to Jodi's first housefilk today, woohoo! Looking forward to it.
