I’ll tell you a little secret: back in 2006, when my dismal state of semi-employment was pointing, uncomfortably, to the necessity of going to graduate school, I briefly fantasized about going to cooking school. I’d been baking a lot at the time, and not in a cutesy, housewife-y kind of way. I was the weekend […]

I’m back in Tokyo after a pretty awesome fucking week in NYC. I miss all of these everythings already. …So, um, other than, you know, the idea of getting fired and “being irresponsible” and all that, why didn’t I ignore my return flight, again? Miss you guys already…I’ll be back soon!

Last Sunday, with temperatures hovering around 40F, I rode outside for the first time in about four weeks. In those four weeks without outdoor riding, I knew things would change. The blast of aerial pressure on my face would seem new and wholly unpleasant, the bright sunlight burning retinas weakened by constant exposure to fluorescents. […]

Yup, true to my predictably unreasonable and stubborn nature, I did that Chinese Bakery Ride again this past weekend and DID NOT GO TO THE CHINESE BAKERY. It’s a work in progress okay? [And by “it” I mean “trying new things and being more sane.”] My excuse – like Mike’s last time – was that […]

I bounced down the stairs, my just barely covered feet soundlessly skipping down the smooth stone stairs, shoes in one hand, the other alternately hovering over the banister and pinning the Rapha bonk bag, borrowed from Mike, to my hip. A thought occurred to me that I might very well crash head first into one […]

I blame my childhood epilepsy for a lot of things: the parental prohibition on engaging in sports, the inability to climb trees and my subsequent complete lack of interest in traveling at any rate faster than a brisk walk. All of which could be explained by simple laziness, but the epileptic seizures and symptoms that […]
