you count the bugs on their teeth! ho ho ho, that's a funny one. but seriously, folks, here's the promised photo of t and i on the bike, on our way to the gym. i not only LOOK like a bobble-headed idiot, i feel like one, too! the biker chick image just doesn't suit me at all. however, when t is going to the gym, and i want to go to the gym, and he really wants to ride his bike, what's the point of going separately in the car (other than being warm)? this way we save gas and all that stuff. i'm getting used to the bugs wetly splattering against my wind-numbed cheeks and the blast of air smacking me when a not-so-aerodynamic semi truck rolls past. really, i am. but if it gets much colder than this (55 F this morning) drastic measures will need to be taken to keep me on the bike.
after the gym, we checked out the chatham mills location where our friend sean will build his dream brewery-- BIG. t is helping design logos, menus, the look of the place, the bottling labels, you name it. the old mill has tons of character, and hopefully that will be well preserved in the restaurant/bar. now if we can all wait for it to open! that's the hard part.
from there onto a mexican food place for lunch and then the pittsboro library book sale... HALF PRICE ON FRIDAY! even cheaper on saturday, but i don't have the time to go tomorrow. when we got there, t came up with the all-too-obvious dilemma... where to put the books? there are no bags on his bike! so we had to be somewhat conservative while perusing the boxloads of true bargains so we could fit all purchases into my backpack. somehow we kept our selections down to 10 books (for only 7 bucks!) and fit them all in. t is going back later to pick up a huge set of shakespeare, in the CAR. i've been to other booksales where there are no real steals, but this one rocks. paperbacks were a quarter, while trades and hardcovers were $1.50. it's like heaven to me.
now we're back in one piece, and should probably actually accomplish something right now. then again, maybe not.
