I liked the way the title looked, and really, it says it all. I have the worst sinus infection I’ve ever had, hands down. Yes, I’m on drugs, and lots of ‘em. Downing probiotics, too, in record quantities (I recently listened to a great podcast of my favorite NPR show, Radiolab, where they talked about how mice on huge quantities of probiotics were less stressed and better capable of handling mouse-crises. I’m ALL OVER this). And I’m still nasal-rinsing, though I’m having Alien flashbacks every time I do it.
At any rate, though the weather is tolerable, I ain’t biking. I pondered it, but decided that mopping the kitchen floor constituted exercise enough for me this week.
I’ve been hankering, lately, for a new bike. You all know the feeling. Since I, you know, quit my job and all, it seems like a bad time to invest in one. Never one to let common sense stop me, I’ve got my eye on Craigslist, as what I really want is a cheap, decent-condition Raleigh Twenty folding bike to play with. I figure if I like it, I can take it on trips with me to ride around when I get to places ahead of my customers. Last year, I swear I could have picked one of these things up daily for like $15, but now I haven’t seen one in weeks.
Here’s what Sheldon has to say about them:

Anyway, that’s all my news. I wish I were riding more, but fate seems to have decreed that this isn’t going to be the spring where I ride three times a week and have just too much to post about. I will survive this! Assuming I don’t end up like this guy:
