1. My well-exercised bicycle needs new gears and chain. Contraption Captain is looking for the parts as I write.
2. Saw a license plate frame that trumpeted "MIT" and thought to myself: Graduated from MIT. Can't keep car between the white lines on the road.
3. Realized that my 8 year old could be bicycling to and from school by herself if American drivers were not such insufferable bastards.
4. Yelled at a Palo Alto woman who was driving a Tundra or a Tahoe or an Everest or an Annapurna or whatever it was "You big fat idiot!" because I had been terrified that she was about to kill me. At the next traffic light she rolled down her window and said "I'm not fat" and I had to explain that I was talking to her car.
