Weekend Bike Commutes (1/01-1/02/2011!)
I’m working hard tonight by multitasking at my desk. My body is hydrating itself and stuffing glycogen into my muscles to fuel me through my 70-minute run, and my brain is cranking out a quick blog post just to say that in a totally predictable move, I rode my bike to work on Saturday and Sunday. Yes! I was working on New Year’s Day! But just for a little while and so that I’d have something more interesting to do once the new week started. For a scientist, there’s often nothing worse than being caught between interesting experiments. It feels like purgatory.
I wish I could say that my weekend contained pancakes, but this sign is about as close as I got. I do love the sign! Too bad there’s no pancake restaurant to go with it any more—it’s been gone since before I arrived in this little town, so who knows when that sign last beckoned us to eat hot, fluffy, maple syrup-soaked pancakes? It’s a good thing I finally learned how to make pancakes at home or else I might be in trouble.
