This is the time of year where the BC Bike Race posts start appearing and I start getting excited about the race. Then the BCBR team sends me an alumni email giving a special offer. Early signup, $300 off, and a custom alumni jersey. Very tempting.
I dropped my wedding ring off at the jewellers yesterday to get a mark fixed, and to get it re-brushed. My finger feels naked without it. Thankfully it is ready for me to pick it up.
Pet Peeve of the day: visiting a site and after a few seconds a modal appears obscuring the site asking me to join the mailing list. Super aggravating, especially when I am on the mailing list. Really wish more sites would offer a way to indicate I am on the list.
Current pet peeve: people who put their recycling out to the curb the night before recycling day when it is quite windy out. There is now trash scattered around the neighbourhood.
Just backed the Bokeh project by @smith. The Micro Monday podcast gave me the Kick in the pants to get on it. Glad I did as there is only 15 hours left.
Watching WWDC. Some pretty interesting bits in iOS 13. Can’t wait to see what is new in Mac OS
🎥 Avengers Endgame – finally saw this last night. Great movie with lots to remember from past movies and even more to take in in this film.
With the Bay St bridge closed it has meant the Johnson St bridge gets more traffic. More traffic means people get impatient, block cross traffic, and block access to the bike lane when turning onto the bridge. Very frustrating when riding, especially during Bike to Work Week.
The plan was to do some yard work today, but it seems like every time I look outside it is raining harder than the last time I looked.
In the song “Burn The House Down” by AJR the first line is “Used to keep it cool”, but for some reason I once heard “You sticky pickle”. Now I hear that all the time. I hope you now hear this when you listen to the song.
