Happy New Year, everyone! (Or nearly everyone. There are still a few hold-out time zones, even at this hour.) I'd like to thank Chicago for whatever strange force caused it to be possible for me to finish 2011 and begin 2012 on my bike (even if the 2012 leg involved fighting 15mph wind, and was largely due to none of the buses to the south side running after 1am). But anyway! Still a good start to the year.

Actually, if I want to be completely honest, 2012 began with rainbow sparklers and enough explosions to make Humboldt Park sound like it was under siege because the Chicago police appear to give everyone about 15 minutes of Indiana-borne contraband pyrotechnic mayhem before they come screaming through with the blues and twos. (Hey, what can I say, some neighborhoods know how to party.)

Here's to a great 2012!

Yay! ^_^

You're making me wish I'd been able to photograph all the fireworks last night. Man. Next year I had better be on top of that.
