now that i have the motorcycle again, my world has suddenly reopened again. going into boston is just as easy for me now as going across the street, weather permitting of course. i can go grocery shopping and not have to depend on someone taking me or walking a mile back. with my newfound freedom, i paid a visit to the cambridge library to get some books. on my way back i picked up a large appliance sticker from the recycle office. i went to the cafe to help my father carry out a large broken air conditioner from the basement for curbside pickup.
a check of the weather report shows that there won't be any good days for the next week or so. basically, it's still too early to do any serious riding, but it's still nice to have the bike to run local errands.
once i returned home i caught a few more episodes of BSG on the scifi channel. i took a shower, logged a few hours of hellgate, then made some ramen for dinner.
nasturtium flowers are fragrant, did you know that? i think i said they smell like roses, but i think they're more like freesia. the scent isn't overpowering and i can only really smell it if i stick my nose into a flower. it could also be because there's very little circulating outwards from the closet, so any smells stay inside. when they first started flowering, i had all yellow ones, but now i have more oranges than yellow.
