It’s been sunny, clear, and hot in Seattle. My shoulders are sunburnt!

My weekend was capped by two great experiences yesterday. First, I got to test drive BioD’s new rig. Wow. You really can’t imagine all the new horizons an electric bike opens up until you’re on one — especially an electric bike with enough power to pin your ears back.

Then I saw Knocked Up, which I can’t recommend highly enough. It manages to be funny without being crass or mean, and touching without being treacly. The most satisfying movie I’ve seen in ages.

Guess it’s back to work now. Sigh.
