|Do we want this?|
I did spring for a new bike. A light weight hybrid with disc brakes. I did get a discount on it and they threw in an odometer complete with a carbon offset calculator. I probably could of gotten a better deal with a lesser name brand bike or online but I am tired of worrying about it. I didn't get the shock absorbers, nice on bumpy roads and trails but suck energy from smooth roads (though you can lock them down)plus they really add to the cost of the bike. And the bike actually fits me instead of stretching out on a bike made for Josh. And the pedals aren't held together by duct tape so that's a plus.
And I got my prescription mess finally all straightened out so all and all, a productive day. Later, a bit of irony or co-incidence. I went looking in the spam pile for something a friend sent and right on top of it, an announcement that my former company and its vast holdings will offer the drug I need again. The rule is, if my drug belongs to the company, I can get it for free. But just a few hours before, I arranged for a year of the stuff I have to pay for. And how did the spam senders know this announcement would interest me?
