February is still here

And I’m utterly sick of winter. The cold. The snow. The boots. The damp mitts. This part of February feels like someone has driven an icicle into my heart and keeps twisting it. Sure, a bit melodramatic but what a tiresome month.

Lose a hat, find a hat. That is February all over. I like monkeys!

The only useful thing I’ve done all week was replace the crummy OEM seat post my pretty & awesome mountain bike had with a rather nice 2 bolt Easton Havoc. Now, my saddle won’t slide around and no more terrible squeaking noise when I pedal.

I suppose I could share future news: I plan on sharing with THE WORLD all the neato bike routes in Toronto including maps, photo and video. The ins (into trails), the outs (out of trails), where the heck the washrooms are (if any), and places to snack (other than Dairy Queen although their Blizzards are worth the ice cream headaches).

Now you’ll have absolutely no reason whatsover to say “awww I don’t know where to ride my bike”. Nope. None. The maps and photos of the starting points and anything interesting along the way will be here.

*insert excited shrieks here!*

Until then I’ll try and get thru February.

Valentine’s Day Donut Massacre

In celebration of the feast of love that is Valentine’s Day… blahblah… love… affection… humblebrag re: super love life…. overpriced chocolates… whatevs feelings… blahblah… foreverness …

Here is a video of the real meaning of love, eating donuts together and not one bit of nutritional guilt is felt. Tough toenails about the death of three donuts. The one covered in sprinkles was definitely asking for it. I can tell because I can understand donut language. It is vile and full of sugar. Totally deserved the thorough chewing punishment I meted out.

I shot this video using my super, handy dandy GoPro Hero 2 camera in time lapse mode. Each agonizing, gripping chomp was stored as a 5 mgp photo which I then had the Time-Lapse app (from the Mac App Store) string together into a movie. Music and titles added in iMovie 11. Took longer to eat the donut than oversee the entire film making magic.

Happy Valentine’s Day! *pithy comment about twoo wuv here*
