The Noam Chomsky mural on 19th and Fairmount is just one of the great things I discovered on my hella-long bike ride all over Philly today.

I had a real long week at work, but things started getting better after an awesome bike ride this afternoon. Now it’s time for dinner and lots of wine.

Don’ts for Women Bicyclists from the New York World, 1895
Here are a few of my favorites:
Don’t be a fright.
Don’t criticize people’s “legs”.
Don’t cultivate a “bicycle face”.
Don’t chew gum. Exercise your jaws in private.
Don’t discuss bloomers with every man you know.
Don’t scream if you meet a cow. If she sees you first, she will run.
Don’t appear to be up on “records” and “record smashing.” That is sporty.
I’ll discuss my bloomers with whomever I want, thankyouverymuch. But I do agree, one should only exercise ones jaws in private.

cover letters.

Can I just write a cover letter that says:

You should give me this job because I am organized, efficient, an excellent communicator, awesome, love bicycling, have expert proficiency with Microsoft Office, make the “perfect taco”, and I’m fun to work with to boot.

Riding a bike is having wings on your feet. Entirely free.

Do you know what life is about? Is about being happy! To ride my bike is my happyness. Are you quite happy? Why don’t you try it?
