It's Saturday-ay-ay-ay  
Went for a long bike ride today on the bike path... without my helmet, which I never do. The helmet is always with the bike, which I put into the car just last night, and when I opened the car up near the path's entrance... no helmet. :0

I have visions of it lying in the office parking lot, perhaps with tire-tracks on it.

I think I have a shopping trip in my future. :(

Biking Yay: Blossoms, nice weather (70-degrees)
Nay: Bees (you know my problems with them), squirrel mating season arrives soon (!), and... tree fuzz is starting up. Breathing that stuff is murder.

Found this yesterday in winterlive's journal. Hilarious and CrackTastic. Suxx0rs beware!

For Sam/Dean fans who might have read my Daydreaming In The Dark (NC-17) (one-sided Slash) last week, the lovely tyrical wrote an alternate view piece of it here. PG-13 (language), and you could let yourself imagine anyone you like as the subject.

Lastly, my husband's off to Yosemite tomorrow for a short, yearly business trip, and I expect big fat moodiness around the house while I chew fingernails about the quantity of fics I have yet to see for the Prison Break Fic Exchange (and madly try to write all the PB Fic I can while I'm in the mood, since Season 2 has killed the muse nearly dead)!

The weather is definitely gorgeous today :D But at the same time... oh god, you just KNOW Spring is in the air when everything starts smelling like tree sperm and biking will land you covered in a feathery parka of white bugs (argh). Benadryl must make a killing in Yolo county :P

when everything starts smelling like tree sperm
Hahahaha! There's one tree in particular that smells like that to me-- it has a heavy earthiness that is remniscent of... something else. Maybe more than one tree-- the white-flowered ones that might be dogwoods, and photinia (bushes and trees).

The "fuzz" on the bike path is from cottonwoods, I think, and in a few more weeks I'll be accidentally inhaling fuzzbits while I ride. I always wonder a little bit what happens to that stuff once it gets into your lungs. :0 Can't be good!

On campus at least, the white fuzz drifting from trees are definitely insects. With little legs and everything, and they're so hard to get off b/c if you brush at them they just smear all over your shirt :( Nice weather notwithstanding, springtime in Davis is so gross... *grimace*

Don't you like bees? I love them, when I'm on the other side of the glass.

:D Bees are only a problem when I'm cycling.

I get stung 2-3 times a year as a result of it, and I'm darn sick of it.

Last year I got stung in the armpit (early spring), inside the thigh (mid-summer), and over the eye (fall) where for that last my eye started to swell shut and I had to have steroid treatments.

They like my hair too much entirely, but are generally harmless unless I'm cycling. That's when things go very, very bad. :(
