datebynumbers: After the millionth time of immediately deleting a message on OkCupid, I thought you might get a peak at why I might as well just delete my account because I’m a total bitch. Reasons I do not respond based on screen names alone: - inclusion of animals such as stallion, wolf, gorilla - any copout name such as “insert-name-here” or “cleverusername” because no, that is not...

matthewknell: sheasylvia: On Friday evening, Aaron and I called off the wedding. (He blogged about it earlier this morning.) The details behind it aren’t for public consumption, but here’s what I will tell you: calling off a wedding a week before the big event seems impossibly difficult. But marrying someone when your… Thoughts, prayers, hugs and love are with you today! :( Hugs, hugs...

shiro13 asked: Hello! I Just want to remind you that in three days, March 26, 2001, is the tumblr meetup at Millennium Park. We are planning to meet at the benches and tables by The Bean at 2:45pm. So far the weather will be high 36 degree and party cloudy. Since it will be a cold day, I don’t think anyone will want to socialize outside so please recommend a place that is warm for us to talk to each...

If you want to ride bikes with me, meet me at the Ravenswood Metra stop at 6:30 with a bike. If you just want to drink with me, meet me at Matilda between 7PM and way too late.

My tumblr bike friends and all their helpful advice. Now I want to go get my sit bones measured, even though it sounds like something I should have done at a spa instead of at a bike shop.

newbie riding question A friend asked me this today and I said, “I don’t know…. I’ll ask tumblr.” How do you pick a new saddle for your bike if you can’t sit on them? How do you know what won’t hurt without dropping $200 on a bunch of different saddles? It is for casual, upright riding - she’s just doing 1-3 mile commutes. Not aggressive at all.

jasminedavila: I had four in-person interviews in the last four weeks. I’ve already gotten no’s from the first two. I was a little surprised by one rejection, not so much by the other. I had a bit of a low moment Wednesday morning, which is when I got the most recent rejection. It was in the form of a voicemail message. I sent an email to my HR contact, thanking them for their consideration,...
fuckyeahirodemybike: Dear Dual Mode Commuting, I love you. I love knowing that for a 2.5 mile ride, I can wear anything. I love that I don’t have to eat breakfast before I leave the house. I love that if I miss the 8:01 train, I can get the 8:09, 8:31 or 8:50 and still be to my desk by 9:15 at the latest.
