the slow simmer of coding filled most of my day, i didn't go out for lunch, finished up the rest of my gnocchi from yesterday. dare i say it? work is starting to become fun again now that everything is manageable and i'm not under the gun. bruce thinks my disease is probably hayfever, but i don't believe in allergies and will try to will myself back to health. who's afraid of a little pollen? riding the bike, exposed to all that open air, probably doesn't help much either. if it isn't ragweed then it's carbon monoxide. coming back home, i cut off a mini cooper trying to make a turn. seconds later i heard some angry honking behind me. it's like when a child gives you the finger, it's actually very cute and funny. they're finally paving beacon street after a year of construction work. my ass will be thankful when it no longer has to get punished riding on that piece of unpaved road.
