Fortuity

Friday, 28 September 2007

Decided to head into work a bit later than usual to­day and biked into Jeff Schuler at the down­town end of Carnegie bridge. He in­vited me to the brief Bike to Work Day mee­tup at A.J. Rocco’s and I tagged along and met a few folks. Ended up with a Cleveland Bikes t-shirt and a con­tact for some free­lance web work. Learned about fixed gear bikes and some­thing call the track stand. I also found out that A.J. Rocco’s has break­fast sand­wich­ery, some­thing I’ve been de­sir­ing of late. Fortuitous.

At lunch I tipped the hot dog lady $1.40 and I think it made her day. She was grumbly and non-eye-con­tact­ing un­til I tipped her, then she looked at me and smiled and thanked me loudly. I am lik­ing this fall weather. Need to be 15 de­grees cooler so I can bust out the scarves though.
