The WETTEST Day of the Year

Now I know mom really doesn't want to hear this... but biking home tonight felt like one of the craziest things I have ever done in my life. I thought I could avoid having to buy a new jacket just because I'm biking in Portland, and compensate with blinkie lights. NO. Wearing black Gortex with black rain pants is entirely unacceptable. I totally believe the biker is responsible for just about any accident that could ever be imagined - if you're out there, you know you can die at any second - and I'm finding that wearing my work shoes on the ride home when it rained seven inches in the past three days is not going to work. I have to be maneuverable and super duper quick. It is just loads of fun and I feel so accomplished every time I get home and carry my bike upstairs.

Mols, you're a crazy, ballsy woman for biking in Portland! I'm impressed. ; )

Also, your pics are stunning. I love the one of the little boy with the Obama '08 facepaint. Very artsy-fartsy. ; )
