Starting to feel edgy due to not bicycling since last Friday. Restless! I rode the gym bike yesterday for over an hour, and that place is so hot that my shirt was wringable afterwards. Yuck. Also, the seat-tilt is non-adjustable, so I not only feel as if I'm slowly sliding downhill, my tailbone goes numb. HOW much longer? New parts aren't due to arrive at the bike shop for a few more days as it is. *chews fist*

The day after the whole incident, bruises popped up everywhere in places that didn't even hurt! Wish I could cover them up, but it's too hot for pants or long sleeves, so they're attracting some attention at work. Most people correctly guess that falling off the bike was involved. Some of them have probably had similar injuries over the years. :O

Speaking of bruisable things, a poll:

Poll #2016394 Poll-poll, bo-boll, banana-fanna fo-foll...

How do YOU eat bananas?

Peel 'em and dive right in. They're prepackaged.
Tear off pieces, to avoid simian connotations.
Tear off pieces, to avoid sexual connotations.
Tear off pieces, or how else will I know where the banana strings are?
WTF, banana strings?
You mean those waxy things?
The really thin strings are a little softer than celery strings, but sneakier.
I almost choked on a banana string, once.
I slice bananas into a bowl and eat them with a fork. Don't judge me!
Banana! Banana!
Bapple! :D
Minions! \o/

And for my current obsession, let me point you to this outstanding Walter/Jesse Breaking Bad story:

Classless, by porkchop_sandwiches. Mostly early S3 (so watch for spoilers), hot and wry and funny and angsty and fabulous. Both characters are really well-written, in this under-canon plot that feels both possible and true. Don't worry about the first chapter, I promise you'll be safe. :)

Okay, back to work. Poking registers, reviewing code-changes, and wishing the hydra-like bug situation would just roll over and die already. Sucks to be the middleman between hardware and testers. /o\

Sad to hear the parts to fix your bike are taking more time. You should come up with something EXCITING for your bruises. Like "well, it was either due to a bike wreck or, you know, injuring incurred while evading the Russian mafia that's after me"

*searches for appropriate icon*

My coworker has firm opinions on how to eat a banana. She peels them from the bottom instead of the top - claims its more efficient.

Hah-I like that idea! "I was wrangling a crocodile when this happened..."

Peeling from the bottom sounds messier than from the top, though if the tip does not crack... it's all bad. Squoosh out the side.

My husband will just go at the things, and I can SEE those little strings dangling and he just eats them anyway. Heck, he probably eats the big, waxy ones, too.

I can feel them on my tongue, and sometimes halfway down my throat, and I've definitely gagged on them. No idea if my kids even notice, though neither of them will eat celery, and I'm convinced the strings are a big part of that.

A girl I used to work with peeled them that way, said it made the strings peel off with the peel rather than stayin on the banana... however I could never managed to do it! The tip has that pointy bit to break off and start the peeling process, but the bottom has nothing!

It sounds messy, though clearly she felt the same way about banana strings that I do. :D
