Bike Love/Longing

Here in Chicago Springtime is a little bitch that always seems really nice on that first date and then never calls you back. “It went really well!”, you think. Well, more snow is in the forecast for this coming weekend, so in my deepening depression about the weather I thought I would post some happy bike things. I usually bike year round, and I kept up biking until I was about 6 months (and the weather started to turn), but when I got a little peek of awesome weather this past week I was really bummed to not be out riding. Oh well, just a few more weeks and I’ll be back at it!

Nerd Love

It’s not a secret that I have a thing for nerdy guys (which my husband is not). Ira Glass, Martin Starr, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jason Schwartzman,  Fred Arminsen – bring it on. The nerdier the better. So when my friend Angela sent this to me today, I knew I had to get it for my poor, athletically inclined husband:

I love you more than I love Ira Glass

If you love someone more than Ira, you can get your V-Day card for them right here.
