I fired up Animal Crossing: Wild World this morning, only to discover that there is no more snow on the ground. Everything looks so verdant. I'm a little sorry to see it go. It gave such a satisfying sound when you walked across it.
I finally caved and went to the doctor yesterday. It seems that a fever of 104 will burn some sense into you. He prescribed antiobiotics and some hydrocodone laced cough syrup. The cough syrup really helps with the congestion, though it makes me a little more loopy than I like.
Yesterday my Rivendell Reader arrived in the mail (The Journal of Non-Competitive Cyclists). Rivendell is really cool. They are often cited as the leaders in the retro-grouch movement. Make no mistake, the bikes they produce look a lot like the bikes from the 70s bike boom. That is a good thing. That era of bikes are my absolute favorites. The tubes on the frames were thin. The top tube on the frame ran parallel to the ground. And, you never saw a bike with more than a fistful of seatpost showing. The bikes also took some skill to use properly. Shifting was very tactile. No clicking buttons back then.
I really love video game crafts. This is especially awesome.http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70397.0
