On Sunday evening, we did another singles event. But for this one, I stayed up the entire night before riding my bike through downtown Chicago in the annual L.A.T.E. Ride. I think I learned from this experience that anytime I need to do public speaking, I should stay up the entire night before and cram for it--because I think the talk went better this time.
Oh, and I think I may develop a video game based upon my experience with the L.A.T.E. Ride this year. The idea is to manuever your bike through a crowded pack of bikers while avoding obstacles like skinny snotty blondes who really want to cross the street despite the thousands of bicyclists, full water bottles strewn throughout the street, guys doing kareoke, and vomiting party girls jumping out on either side of the street. It'd be more fun than Excite Bike!
PTOIT SPECIAL FEATURE: FUN WITH GOOGLE!
Aftera hiatus, the world's most popular feature having to do with words, google, photos and me is back! Today, I opened up the ole' dictionary to pick the random search words. I plugged them into Google Images and here's what I got:
Today's Search Terms: "Library" and "Safari"
Photo #1: Now, this is a Safari Library. When I look at this picture, two thoughts run through my mind. The first is of a lion rampaging through this cozy little set-up and a librarian asking him for a library card. The second thought I have is that all those books have titles like How to Find Women in the Jungle, How to Decorate your Safari Pad to Attract Women, and Lonely in the Jungle?
Photo #2: Why is it that the creepiest puppet of them all is the little girl one? Hmmm, or is it the one in the middle?
Phot0 #3: Ernest Hemingway. This photo is included here for Gene. Gene is my old roommate (as in former roommate, not that he's my current roommate who is very aged). Gene is the only person I know who would dress up at Halloween as Ernest Hemingway. Or cook from a Hemingway cookbook. And I'm serious. He did. Luckily we never got the recipe for lion.
Photo #5: Ah, the most dangerous safari there is: Hunting the Giant-Headed White Beagle. Lull it asleep with the gentle strumming of your guitar and you can approach close enough to get your photo with it...
