Illicit blogging-while-“working,” eep!
Note: it’s entirely possible that the following things were so utterly amusing to me due to the complete lack of mental stimulation during the four preceding hours at my desk.
While doing lunch-break errands this afternoon, I saw two things that induced instant giggles. First, on the way to the post office, two blocks from my office, there was a man on the corner playing his homemade drum set – consisting of the usual buckets and bottles, and also a BIKE RACK!! The bike rack had apparently been unscrewed from the pavement (a little disconcerting that this is possible), to become a portable component of the drum set. Imagine something like this:
Any potentially illegal aspects aside, this is one of the more awesome things I have seen downtown. He was completely rocking out.
Next gigglefest encounter… this sort of bicycle:
With this sticker:
This is funny for many reasons, primarily because it is such a hipster thing to have that bike plus that sticker. Silly.
