Hangin' around Old Town

So I drove up to Village Cycle to buy a bicycle. They seem to know what they're doing, and they promise to put the bicycle together in an hour. So I had that going for me. I bought what the creepy salesman told me to buy, paid and went for a walk. I needed some lunch, and figured I'd pick whatever looked good.

I ended up at McDonald's.

I almost went into the "New Jerusalem" for some middle eastern food, but there was something weird about the place when I first walked by. So, I tried the taco salad thing at McD. Pretty darn good, as it damn well ought to be for $5. I was shocked to find that it tasted almost exactly like a taco salad my mother used to make.

When I was done, of course, the sky opened up and the world tried to end. I had another half hour to burn, so I high-tailed it to where I thought a bookstore was. Turns out the bookstore moved but left their sign. So, I had to peoplewatch for a little while.

Turns out I was loitering directly across the street from this little piece of the cityscape. I'm surprised I didn't get arrested.

I got my bike, rode it in the rain back to my car, and learned very quickly how to disassemble it to cram it into my car.
