It looked like it was going to rain, so I followed the bicycling rain laws which makes stop signs even more optional than usual. Just kidding. Scofflaw jokes are my bread and butter.
I saw two prime examples of the rarest of common Georgetown types, the Jane Hoya (this guy gets it mostly right). It's ok for me to poke fun at Jane because I have a lot of friends who are Janes. Wait, that's not true. I mean, I knew a lot of Janes in college. Or, I would have if they ever talked to me- why didn't I just play lacrosse in high school? Why weren't they more interested in Lord of the Rings? I might have seen one once on an elliptical machine. Anyway.
Highbrow bumper sticker day on 34th street (not a sequel to the famous Christmas movie). There was one that I couldn't read that said something about Nanking in the font used for Space Invaders. And there was one that I could read, but couldn't understand, that was "Comp Lit = Lit Crit. Think Outside the Box" If only I had gone to grad school...wait, I mean, if only I had gone to a better grad school.
Some unsolicited advice about crossing Lee Highway. Don't try to do it from the sidewalk. Cars turning right are not looking for you. I did my signature head swivel move and it made no difference whatsoever. I even had the walk light in the cross walk. Get off the sidewalk at the Marriot exit and merge back into the travel lane. Way safer.
I saw a real life genuine hipster on Wilson Boulevard. I was like, whoa hipster, you're a long way from Columbia Heights. Because I refer to hipsters as if they're wild palominos. He had a fixie, did a track stand at a stop light, was wearing knickers, had a sticker that said BIKE on his bike (so ironic?), scruffy beard, the whole thing. I even tried to get a picture, but stupid password protect foiled me. Data security is a distant second to taking pictures of hipsters. See if you can find him:

Some motorcycle guy really revved his engine when he peeled out past my on Fairfax Drive. I get it- it's small. You don't need to cause an accident though. Speeding is very dangerous. And the noise pollution. Ugh.
