Not much has been happening lately in the life of Rob, hence the lack of regular updates. Work is slow, bike commutes have been uneventful (which is a good thing, really), and this past weekend was a welcome lazy weekend full of reading books and catching up on Netflix.
At the end of last week the personal injury case from when I was hit by a car last May was finally settled. My lawyer received the check from the insurance company today and I’ll have my slice of the pie in about three weeks’ time!
Earlier this week I decided to walk down to Performance Bicycle on my lunch break (barely a 10 minute walk from work!) to try replacing some of my older jerseys, which aren’t nearly as comfortable as they used to be since I’ve bought a few higher-end jerseys, with some full zips. I found a really nice Pearl Izumi jersey that was incredibly lightweight, but it fit like crap and I had to pass on it. However, I did find a Performance branded jersey that was quite comfortable, and this sweet Primal Wear jersey, “Los Muertos.” The Primal Wear is unfortunately a 3/4 zip, but I own another with a different print that is as comfortable as much more expensive jerseys I own so I made an exception. I had to go down a size on both compared to what I used to buy, so I guess I’m losing more weight than I thought!
Sweet pint glass Dara found today while out shopping. Was only $3 or $4, too!
Selkie’s enjoyed the last two snow days.

Dara and I swung by Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find this weekend since they were having a store-wide sale. They had a ton of stuff in the store that they normally save for conventions, like boxes upon boxes of “silver age” comics (which I think is 60s or 70s era) and this wall of apparently super rare stuff, since every book with a price tag I could see was in the $300-$850 range.
Roads were a mess yesterday, but they should be much better today overall. Still taking my car to work (office has a late start). Don’t want to show up to work soaking wet and freezing just to be proud and stubborn.
