So it rained today. No bike riding. ::sniff:: But tomorrow looks better, only 20% chance of rain, and the storm that was just south east of us is gone, replaced with a storm just west of us and moving towards Toronto. I’ve never seen a storm move like that. . .though I’m not a meterologist so I’m not one to talk. I’m just glad it isn’t passing this way.
On Sunday I went out at 10:30 am and got back about 3:30 pm, a good long ride. Though I did stop to stretch for a while with a walk through the mall – even stopping at the Newbury Comics therein to look at comics. I felt a tinge of that old feeling of seeing new comics that I wanted to read: Lenore #13 was on the new comics section. No shit, I thought to myself, he finally got #13 out. Good for him. And good for us: Lenore #13 had some delightfully sick humor that made me laugh. I picked that up along with All Star Superman #8 or 7 or whatever. It was the one when Superman is stuck on the Bizzaroe’s world and trying to get off by the aid of talking in backwards speak. It was a fun comic. I usually really enjoy Grant Morrison’s writing, and the art on these is amazing. The other comic I got was Buffy:TVS season 8 #1 (third printing!). I got #2 when it came out, and couldn’t get my hands on a #1 when I was last at a comic store (back at the Laughing Orge at SPACE in April). So I picked it up – being the big Buffy fan I am. The art is great, and the story was pretty entertaining too. Though it makes me think it’d be better served as a trade paperback. So while the temptation is there, I’ll resist and pick up the trade when it comes out. I also got the trade of Warren Ellis’ Fell, but haven’t read it yet. A pretty large comics haul for me.
After my little pit stop at the mall I continued my ride and realized I was starving. A quick stop for some yummy Mexican food and I was back on the road.
What a feeling that was: a full happy belly and riding on the bike. . .it was amazing. I would think such a little thing wouldn’t be much, but it was peaceful: a full belly satisfied and my mind satisfied riding the bike.
