Yes, indeed, when you are using faint orange font on a white background, you have certainly made every effort to make the Bikeability website accessible and easy to use for everyone, no matter what browser you choose to use, and whether or not you have any disabilities.

My bleeding eyeballs would like to offer you a cookie. A cookie flavoured with purest STUPID.

If there's anybody who reads my LJ who doesn't have some kind of mental or chronic illness, it's probably not clear what all the fuss is about. But for me, this is one of the best days I've had in a long time, and I've done a bunch of stuff I've been meaning to get around to. There's still stuff that needs doing - I didn't get around to picking up my prescription, for instance - but still, this was a damn good day. Recently, if I'd managed one of these things, I was calling it a success.

Stuff I did! YAY! Go team me! )

Phew! Now I think I'm going to bed.

* Bad thing: discovering the raspberry bush you want to save is thoroughly tangled up with couch grass you want to fatally kill very hard to death until it dies of it and isn't alive any more.

Worse thing: starting the uprooting and untangling process with your bare hands, and finding the large and thriving nest of red** ants in there.

** Since I didn't get stung, I'm thinking they were actually yellow ants, which are less aggressive. Still startled the hell out of me.

It's not new. It's, ah, 'vintage'. But it's a racing bike and it's a brand I've actually ever heard of, which are two advantages over my current beast. I was getting a bit sick of checking triathlons to see if they actually allowed mountain-style bikes, and of worrying if Meg was gonna get through the safety check.

Plus it's only £60. Always nice. Reading between the lines, I think I'm gonna have to replace tires and saddle, and I don't trust elderly inner-tubes not to disintegrate on me, but that's not bad going. It's only got 5 gears, but I only use 6 of the 18 on the one I've got, so that's not necessarily much difference.

On the down side, it's pink. Can't win 'em all.
