Here’s my new bicycle. Well, actually, it’s not. It’s much better than my bicycle at the moment. The movers managed to bend both my front rim and my front axle. Loyal Reader Number Four took the wheel to a bike shop today for repairs, which are promised for tomorrow. I took this picture in Cannes a few years ago. I’m pretty sure this machine was still being used at the time.

Time to pause for Home Evening. See you in a little bit.

– Pause –

I’m back. It’s late now – well, it’s almost 9:30, and that’s late in my book. I can remember when I went to bed after midnight every night and got up at 5:30, day after day. Sigh. Those days are certainly over. Now I can hardly keep my eyes open.

Loyal Reader Number Two has been playing with a new, improved version of Line Rider. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. The premise is ludicrously simple – you draw lines on a white background and a little guy on a sled goes down the lines. You just make cool courses for him to ride without letting him fall off. What a great idea. The new version has non-ridden lines, acceleration lines, and an badly-needed eraser for lines that didn’t quite work out.

I’ve also recently tried another game, called flOw. It’s an eerily peaceful game where you start out as a single-cell creature (or something like that, anyway) underwater, and you eat littler creatures to grow. You have to avoid being attacked by bigger creatures, but mostly you just cruise around and get bigger. The music is peaceful and I like the game. Try it out! You can play online or download the game for your PC. The best thing about the game is that it appears to have been the basis for somebody’s Master’s degree.

We went out to Weinerschnitzel for Home Evening treat tonight. It was our second visit there. This time, we had coupons for root beer floats for only 99 cents each! I’m still not sure we got a good deal. My root beer tasted like it was a little bit short on syrup, so I took it back to the counter and got another, which maybe tasted slightly better. Our first trip was slightly more expensive and infinitely worse-tasting. I don’t think we’ll go back there. There are so many better restaurants.

I -finally- made an update to the HRVA website. I definitely need to keep the updates coming much more frequently if I ever hope to make anything useful out of it. Anyway, have a look!

Work went fine. The commute went fine. I’m feeling fine. Everything is fine.

And I’m exhausted, so I’m going to bed. See you on Tuesday.
