I'm beginning to become spoiled by my bike. I'm used getting to class from home in 5 minutes, and my feet aren't used to walking a lot anymore. Oh well, biking is sweet and I love it. Plus, I get a little bit of exercise every day from riding up hills. My thighs are solid and super-buff. Which is good, I think.

Speaking of my bike, I rode it yesterday to pick up pizza at Pizza Hut on 65th and 15th. I usually don't consider myself that awesome, but last night I felt totally rad as I pedaled back down 15th with two pizza boxes strapped to the back of my bike. I felt European, but instead of flowers or baguettes in my bike basket, I had pizza taped to the rack. ROCK.

The last few days have been a whirlwind, and I'm just now getting my act back together. Once I'm done with class at 12:30, I think I'm going to go do something fun and/or relaxing. Preferably both.


A Haiku for You:

of pain. And tomorrow will
likely be the same.


I'm at the library. I hate Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. They are so intense with class (and consequently homework) that it's ridiculous...

My travel mug is definitely ready to be retired. Somewhere in the inner lining, a leak has occured, and icky coffee remnants are now living in the space between the lining and the outer plastic cover. You can see the gross liquid moving about when I drink from the mug. This wouldn't really bother me except for the fact that some of this liquid gets back into the inner part every time I fill it up with something. So when I drink anything from that mug (and I drink lots of stuff out of there - tea, water, juice), it all has this slight tinge of disgusting coffee to it. It's kind of moldy, and really gross.

So basically, I'm in the market for a rad new coffee travel mug. Anybody have any suggestions as to where to find one? I want to buy it ASAP because I really do use my mug all the frickin' time. It's great because I get cheaper drip coffee and free hot water at the shops on campus if I bring my own mug, but what's more, I'm not constantly using and throwing away paper coffee cups, plastic cups and bottles, etc. That's actually my main motivation for having a travel mug. And I need one soon. So - any suggestions as to where to find one?
My old work supervisor, Steven, is hilarious and a great boss. I miss working for him all the time. At least I'll be working on Thursday for him, so I can get a free ticket for the basketball game.

My favorite email exchange between him and me from the last few days:

Now on to Kyla's part (not written by Jeff):
Work was ok. I got my review from one of the managers. It went well, and I got a 50 cent raise, so I'm happy. I'm a good worker! Yay.

I want a pot pie for dinner.

Going out tonight with friends from work. Half price night at Finn's! Also, I've stopped using hypens. They're dumb. (see if you can find the two points in the post where I should have used them)

That's about it. School's fine, work's fine. Anything besides that is stuff I'm not going to post on the Internet. so ha.
