Economic Stimulus

Since I know you look to me for advice,I'd like to inform you that this is what you should do with your economic stimulus payment:
buy a bicycle.

If you've already got one that you don't ride: get it tuned up, buy a helmet, buy some gloves, a rack, and panniers. And while you're at it, take those plastic pedals off of it and put something decent on there.

If your bike is a K-mart/department store bike:
do not get it tuned up. Donate it to Goodwill and get yourself a tax receipt. Then look around the Goodwill for something from the 80s with a steel frame and an Italian name.

Just my two cents of economic stimulus.

The Nomination

I am really ready for the Democratic nominating race to be over.

In the meanwhile, I'm edutaining myself with this list of things younger than John McCain.

Spain in Lights

I meant to blog this ages ago:

It might be a little small to see, but it is the product of about 45 minutes of four of us sitting at the mirador of San Nicolas (overlooking the Alhambra) and taking long-exposure pictures while trying to write "Spain" using the LCD of a digital camera as a pen.

This was ridiculously fun.
