i only ride my bike to work maybe once or twice a week, so of course i pick today to ride my bike to work. fortunately i only had about a 25-minute ride home in the drizzling, cold, late-october rain. theatrical guns 'n roses song lyrics kept going through my head . . .

something about riding home in the rain makes you feel a bit like a kid again, though. i passed a group of kids walking in the rain, yelling about how wet they were.

as i rode down through rogers park, i also came up behind another cyclist. as i went to pass him, i said, "nice day to be riding home, eh?" and he looked up and screamed. AaaaAahhhhhhhh!! was his cry. I have to remember not to sneak up on people in rogers park, even if we're both on bikes.

i still have a job for now, but things are slowing down a bit. i don't know what to make of things. i've been assigned a password to the peoplesoft computer system, but i'm not taking that to mean very much. they can still fire me.

. . . i loaned out my cyclocross bike to a teammate, bob, for him to race it this weekend. he's just racing to finish the races, and is even doing the race in regular tennis shoes (omg). he says he'll take it easy on my sweet, sweet rig.

this weekend i go to see BOB DYLAN. i haven't seen him play in about 2 years or so. for some reason, he likes to come to chicago around halloween. i've seen him perform two shows on halloween night . . . at one of the shows, the comedian steven wright opened the show. he's so great.
