Great to see all these companies with vested interests finally jumping on the bandwagon at the eleventh hour. Way to be timely, Tumblr!
Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

I wound up riding the elevator with the window washer later on. Trying to think of something original to ask him, I said “What’s the strangest thing that’s happened to you in your job?” To which he replied “Uh, nothing. It’s work.”
Many (if not most) of us rode up to Rockford before riding back to Vivant, turning it into a ~30 mile round trip. This time the ride officially starts in GR and goes to Rockford, so it will be the same for me and anyone who’s riding with me.

Jane and I cycled up the White Pine Trail to watch Goo Goo Dolls at Fifth-Third Ballpark (Grand Rapids MI) last night. It was a good show, but we had to sit through Daughtry first, and unfortunately we missed Plain White Tees (the opener) as they must have started right after doors around 6:30!
I thought the single-song encore of a Supertramp cover was a strange choice, but I guess it’s a standard of theirs.
