Contest #6 Winner

Congratulations, Elisa M!

Snowed In

Yesterday was the first day I got out of the house since Sunday. I went to work for a couple of hours. It was kind of a relief, but not that great. Today, is the first day I've ridden my bike since last week. It was pretty cool. Below are some crappy pictures I took with my web cam (because my digital camera is broken) of the snow that and ice (more like ice really) that are causing all the ruckus. And I do mean ruckus--we just started getting mail yesterday (!) and the trash ran three days late. I feel deprived of social interaction and the internet because my cousin has been hogging the ethernet connection, most likely to talk to some bugged-eyed she's been chasing since college or writing embarrassing single's ads. I am, if you can't tell, a bit grouchy.

That first step is a doozy.

Everything coated in very crunchy snow.

Backyard. No barbecues here.

Contest #6

If all had gone as planned dear readers, this contest would've coincided with the twelfth day of Christmas, but apparently that was yesterday, not today as I thought. I guess I can't win for losing with this giveaway. You, on the other hand, can win your choice of a tee and a tote from Dark Cycle Clothing. The "biking is for lovers" tee and the "white rabbit" tee are standouts for me, but there are many unique animal-on-bike tees to chose from.

Husband and wife team--Adam and Coryn--from sunny Tampa, FL are the designers of Dark Cycle Clothing. They screen print intriguing (and not at all menacing) tees and totes with a cycle chic flair. I don't know where the "darkness" comes in exactly--perhaps it's in the eye of the beholder. Leave your comments about Dark Cycle Clothing or your favorite tee/tote to enter to win some cool new gear. This contest will close on Sunday January 9th at 11:59 PM EST. I'll announce the winner chosen by me on Monday January 10th.

Comments are back up! It wasn't the numbering itself that was wrecking the comments feature, it was the fact that I chose the option to embed comments below posts. I will now write an angry e-mail to Blogger and resume my contests. PLEASE leave your comment on Contest #5 Redux to win a lovely tee shirt. Cheers and good luck!

Contest #4 Winner

Congratulations to the sharp-eyed Bryna--she's going to get this gorgeous Mello Velo bike seat cover.

Hey you other winners, I know that things have been a bit hinky on this blog, but my e-mail works just fine so contact me at by the end of the week to claim your prize. (I think you guys deserve an extension considering the technical difficulties I've been having).
