I rode my bike to and from work today (I know – you’re almost rabid with excitement over my “green” efforts; wait until I tell you about my recycling next week).
Actually, my bike riding is not because I want to save the environment all by my one-sie, but because Bart and I work two of the same days, and we only have one car. Also, my office is less than three miles from our house and it’s a converted duplex, so there’s a handy little backyard with a fence where I can chain up my bike.
And nothing will make you feel more justified in eating many cookies when you get home from work than having ridden a total of over five miles that day. And some of it was even uphill.
It was a bit chilly riding to work, but coming home was gorgeous beyond belief. It was about 70 degrees outside, I rode through a park full of cute children, I stopped by the library to drop off some books, I was listening to an audio book, and the whole afternoon stretched out before me to with what I wanted.
It turns out that what I wanted was a nice long nap. So I took one.
(Also. Does it seem completely wrong for the UT library to have recalled my library book and made it due over spring break when I clearly won’t be going to the library or even anywhere near campus? Inconsiderate, I think).
