Bicycle!

So Jeff bought me this shiny new toy for my birthday. It’s green. It shines. It has new brakes, an air pump, a removable basket, and some lights.

In short, it is fabulous. And today, I rode it home from work.

This, for me, was no small feat. I was sweaty when I arrived at the Metro station in Pasadena, because I have not ridden a bicycle in forever. I had to take the bike on two trains, taking elevators to both, and had to stand the entire time whilst on the train because I needed to hold up my bike. At least that meant I didn’t fall asleep on the train, though, like I normally do. Instead, I got to read my book and look cool, too ;).

All and all, a good first experience.

I am 26. I love nature. I love trying new things, and I love children. I love cooking, baking, and sometimes even cleaning. I am an organized mess, and yet manage to eat three meals a day and get eight hours of sleep a night. If you stop by, I'll feed you and make you a mixed CD. Oh, and I am a fan of you.

  1. Sweet green gift! You’ll be biking all over town in no time. Such a good way to exercise and unwind at the same time.

    Also, if avocados are 5 for $2, I need to move there.
