Biffed it on State Ave. this afternoon on the bicycle, after going a bit too fast over ice. Falling every now and again is actually reassuring, especially because I wasn't being tailed by a car. But the two more times before I got home were just annoying, I spilled the rice vinegar, and tentatively dawdled the rest of the way. I was also genuinely scared for a moment by some murmuring creature off in the murky distance, knowing that I couldn't just sprint off at a clip. My muscles hurt.

Have you seen Mac & Me? Count this as both a recommendation and a dissuasion. Love the "political" twist ending...and so, so much more.
