650b, porteur, and a baguette. Time to shop!
Kale, chocolate, pepperment – three great tastes that DO NOT go together.

One of our interior doorknobs fell apart and the bolt that held it together vanished into the mists. So I fixed it by tapping the spindle for a m5 bolt, which I then lifted from my rackbuilding supplies. I should really walk all the doorknobs and do this, because I’m much happier using a hex driver to fasten things together than trying to do it with a flat-bladed screwdriver.

Yes, it’s a Bike Friday xtracycle. I’m in love.

The winter storm wasn’t nearly as severe as predicted, so I ended up going out for a bike ride this afternoon despite it. Not being severe doesn’t mean that there wasn’t anything going on, though; it was sleety and freezing rainily all afternoon, and by the time I got home the midlifecrisismobile was encrusted with an ⅛th-inch layer of ice.

Our furnace has joined the choir invisible, and NW Oregon is getting swatted with a winter storm (in November! In almost-coastal Oregon!) tonight and tomorrow. We can’t get a service for the furnace until Friday, and if the forecast of snow+sleet+freezing rain is true, the roads will be in no condition for me to carry firewood tomorrow or friday. So, instead of making a couple of pallet runs I instead went to the local store and picked up a few bundles of firewood. Heavy bundles of firewood, but at least they’re low-hanging heavy bundles which kept the xtracycle shimmy down to a dull roar. Hopefully they’ll be enough to keep the house not-cold until the furnace clanks back to life.

I won’t eat fish at the sushi joint, but I will happily eat sweet bean paste balls until I puff up like Violet Beauregarde.

I was taking a photo of the fully-laden Trek after finishing up my afternoon’s shopping, but didn’t realize the glass behind it was acting as a mirror.

… so it’s time to switch from the born-again Trek to the midlifecrisismobile for my wanderings around NW Oregon.
