I probably don't really need a new lock because somewhere I have a spare key, but, I really hate the lock I have, so I was just looking for a reason to get a new lock. I went to REI. Here's a geopolitical note. The store was full of Japanese tourists taking advantage of the falling dollar, catching a bargain. I stared at the locks for awhile, but I couldn't bring myself to buy one, knowing I had a perfectly hateful one at home. Yesterday, I did bring myself to buy two new road tires for my bike. I had just been convinced by my bike maven that I didn't need new tires, I needed new technique, but they were only $8.99 and will arrive in two days, years before any better riding technique is likely to appear.
Don't it always seem to go
That you dont know what youve got
Till its gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
