Mum’s planning to buy me a bicycle for Christmas, which is great and I’m highly in favor of it. But given that gas is $3 a gallon as of 11 pm yesterday, and I’d really like to lose some weight, I rather wish she’d just buy the darn thing now. I’m perfectly willing to have it be early and not get a big present in December; I am not going to sulk.
Plus, it’ll be cold in December, which means I won’t really get started till spring. Sigh.
