I said I was slacking on the blog because of school? Today I felt like slacking on school to hang out at the blog. Actually, I was just reading a few and thought I'd check in over here.
Pedal Perks just finished another month and I managed to get my name in lights again. Really, that's the only reason I participate... all that recording of rides blah, blah, blah. But anyways, here's my latest perk. FedEx guy just dropped it off. My new crown.

It's a Bern bike helmet to replace the old Giro I had. I was just thinking last week after I'd put my order in for this one, that my old helmet was old old, but thankfully had never taken a hit. I was thinking this as I was pedaling under an overpass when a rock jumped down from the overpass and smacked me upside the helmet. I think that's the first time that's ever happened, like the helmet gods were reminding me of their importance!
Anyway, I hope Bernie and I enjoy many a ride together, and she never has to go to work except for maybe some occasional debris from overpasses.
The promo stuff says it's "designed to be women specific". I have NO idea what that means.
Speaking of the toadz, there's been no sign of Reese the snake since that fateful day he left us back in May. As I recall, it was the week of Memorial Day, so it's been some time ago now. Considering his chief skill on his resume' is hiding, we doubt we will ever see him again.
Unless we get another snake.
That's how it usually seems to go. Lose something, and once we give up hope and get a replacement *POOF* there's the thing we lost. But truth is, I miss him. It was fun creating his habitat - or at least watching Meego do it. The whole thing was quite educational - including his escape. I will say that I don't miss the dead mice in the freezer however...
