I Need Bicycle Advice

So, as much as I love my Schwinn Jaguar Cruiser, I need to sell it and get a new bike.

My Schwinn is only a 7 speed. That fact, along with the upright position in which you sit upon the bike, makes it extremely difficult for me to bike around my hilly university neighborhood.

I'm thinking about getting a road bike with the thin tires and low handlebars, or one of those bikes that kind of looks like a mountain bike, but probably isn't, with thicker tires and low handlebars. As you can see, I don't really know much about bikes.

I need something that is light weight and that has like 12-20 gears.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Stupid Blondes

I just read a story about a stupid 19 year old blonde "bombshell", as ABC calls her, who robbed a bank with her friend as a joke. They took a couple grand and then went to the mall to get highlights.

Now she's looking at a possible 10 years in prison and, in light of that, says that what they did was "pretty ignorant" (probably pronounced ignernt). But I don't think she really thinks she's gonna get the jail time. She's probably lived a life where she could do whatever she wanted without any real consequences. How else could she think it was a good idea to rob a bank for the hell of it?

And the sad thing is, I don't think she's going to get the jail time, either. Like Paris, she's "too pretty for jail". And I think that's really kind of true. Not that she's too pretty, because based on the video footage, I think she's rather average looking. Take off all that cakey makeup, and she's not much prettier than Britney Spears. But I think that privileged and generally attractive people live under a different legal system than the rest of the country.

How else could OJ get away with killing two people? The real law is money in this country.

And in this country, we love pretty young girls who act out. Just look at Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton. Lindsay has just been voted the hottest women out of 100 chosen for some magazine I don't remember. I didn't actually read the article, just the headline. Britney has staged several short an generally unannounced "comeback" shows at little clubs around LA (although her lip syncing is still at issue). And Paris just got her 40-something day sentence knocked down to 20-something days. It's probably because she's just too pretty for that much jail time. Thank god she's not even prettier, or she might get off scott free.

Ah well, that's justice for you.

Where's Me Lucky Meow Mix... er... Charms?

Ian recently brought to my attention the fact that the non-marshmallow pieces of lucky charms bear a striking resemblance to cat food. I thought he was being feces-ish (my disgusting replacement for "facetious") at first, but then I really looked at the pieces, and I realized that they are exactly the same shapes as most dry cat food.

You've got your X's, your triangles, and, most tellingly, your little Jesus fish shapes.

This causes me to wonder if my breakfast cereal is churned out using the same machine that makes my cat's kibble. Well, as long as they clean the machine well first, I don't suppose that I mind too much.
