1. The water in the fountain was frozen solid this morning and yesterday morning (it melted in between). It's been cold out there! Interestingly, puddles I biked past yesterday morning were not frozen at all. Earth is a good heat reservoir.

2. The CSA has spoiled me. Now that it is in winter interregnum, I am bereft and hungry. What? I have to buy food? And plan?

3. I took my bike to the shop this morning. The funny grinding vibration when setting out from a stop was caused by a broken axle. Yikes! All better now. (I love the Off Ramp. In addition to fixing the problem, they also corrected the tension on the wheel that keeps going funny and nicely lubricated the chain. And gave me a little lecture about chain lubrication that sounded remarkably like the lecture you get from the dentist about flossing. And charged very little.)

4. There is this sidewalk on my way from work to the train station that has bits of glass or something in it. When it is dark, it is SPARKLY. I cannot look away from it while I am walking over it. This is unfortunate, because it also has lights embedded in it, and they are bright and hurt my eyes. But SPARKLY.

5. If I had an internet-enabled device on the train, I would make a lot more posts like #4 there, about billboards and birds and dogs and people asking for directions and other things I see on the way. Also random thoughts, because I have a lot of those while I'm walking but I don't usually remember them long enough to bring up later.

Thanks to number 3, I am highly amused at my current mental image of your bicycle in a dentist's chair, and the bike mechanic asking sternly, "When was the last time you flossed your bicycle?"

Hee! The method of gear cleaning recommended in the maintenance guide I was flipping through while waiting is mechanically not dissimilar to flossing. (Roughly monthly, is how often it thinks this is a good idea.)

We have a spare internet-enabled pocket device, but you don't want it. :P

Look, I do not have a Twitter account for a reason, okay? The world does not need more #4.

I probably shouldn't be humming and swaying along, but look! ;)
I hear you. I often wonder what would happen if there wasn't a Sunday market for part of the year. I think I'd eat a lot of pasta. And popcorn. And more pasta. (Tomato sauce counts as a vegetable, right?)

I need to get back in the habit of getting to the market on Sunday. Quick, before all the vitamins get away!
