Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire released today on DVD in its usual two versions. Mike just called to inform me he has safely returned home with two copies of the special edition dual disc DVD's. One for me and one for my mom.
It sucks I can't watch it today. But hey, being broke sucks too. This is also the first year in several I will not be attending the Philadelphia Flower Show. Another regrettable instance. The things we sacrifice for cars and the people we love.
My roommate got in yet another bike accident today. A broken finger and a cracked tooth. He was rear ended by a guy and he flipped over his handlebars. I get pretty annoyed when people tell me they don't wear helmets because they can do more harm than good. This is true, but probably in a very small percent of accidents. He'd be better off just saying helmets don't look cool.
But I've seen Frogg ride his bike and although a bicyclist is a bicyclist, Frogg's overweight and by default way slower and less limber. He really shouldn't be riding alongside traffic and in and out of it like the hot messenger guys. My other roommate, a female and even more overweight, is just downright inconsiderate to cars and a 'dreamy' bicyclist.
I give motorcycles and bikes the utmost attention and respect when driving, but damnit, they should do me the same and most often do. Thea is more so the type of bicyclist who goes really really slow in the middle of a one way street while cars just back up behind her and she feels she has the right of way and blah blah blah. I want to hit those people too.
Anyhow, I don't have anything against overweight people, but ya know, they can't do everything their skinny counterparts do.
I must give them kudos though for doing something I won't. You won't see me cruising through traffic around City Hall. I walk.
