Hi Deb, I'm curious what gear you recommend for winter riding. It's kinda hard to wade through the gazillion options. Any recommendations? /rebecca

about to start Wolf Boy by Evan Kuhlman. "The phone call informing them of Francis's death came while Stephen was watching a Godzilla movie on TV and his sister was twirling her baton about ten feet away from him and his mother was in the kitchen making a carrot cake and his father was putzing around in the den, trying to think of something to do."

I'm going to have to disagree with everyone about NY drivers. I would much rather ride in New York with drivers who are used to looking out for bikers and pedestrians than in other cities and towns where no one is looking... that said, I (almost) always wear a helmet.

it's true! you know someone's a true bike geek when they drool a bit over your components... I upgraded to a bikesdirect single-speed so if anyone (Stephanie) is interested in a great "putz-around-bk" bike let me know. It's red with very pretty celeste handlebar tape :)

nytimes, woostercollective, and thesartorialist to start the day... then little breaks for wednesdaychef, orangette, the year in pictures, designsponge, and what i wore (that last one is a guilty pleasure, but anyone who will, in all seriousness, wear heart-shaped sunglasses simply cannot be resisted...)

They were filming for Eat, Pray, Love in Carroll Gardens this past week. First at Robin du Bois and then at BookCourt on Sunday night. Fewers gawkers than you would think.

aw, thanks guys! my little 32 pounder looked so puny on the sidewalk. deceptively puny. Margie, your help was sooo necessary. 14.14. kinda like an onomatopoeia.

hmm, "even if you don't know it yet." i suppose i no longer have that excuse? also: not totally sure how impressive 6 push-ups will be in a competition... (although i like to think it's pretty amazing)

Gabrus (and Matt): you are absolutely responsible for my amazing (ok, amazing for me, anyway) time today. Thanks!
hmm, devouring copious amounts of pig before watching a film that exposes the horrors of the meat industry. interesting ...
