i had a pretty well-rounded day. for breakfast i made some scrambled eggs with kielbasa sausages. i went outside and installed the new bike bell as well as the tail light rack bracket. i didn't realize how cold it was (below freezing in the 20's) and my fingers began to hurt while i was working. next i went to the bank to deposit a check from client E before stopping at market basket to get some groceries. in the afternoon i did a few hours of work until 6:00.
for dinner i ate some 3 week old chicken that'd been sitting in the fridge. i spent the rest of the night waiting for some sort of digestive reaction that never happened. looks like i won another round of food borne russian roulette!
i won another ebay auction, 2 pairs of XLC brake pads for v-brakes ($6 with free shipping). once again i was the only bidder. I'm kind of surprised; maybe people don't do a lot of bike repairs during the winter.
