No... you listen! I got a lot to say.

  First, I love March! I love the snow in March, it is the best snow of the year. It is the last month where I can still expect it to snow. And it snows every year in March, and people still get surprised by it and complain about it. March is historically the second snowiest month of the year in Minneapolis, get used to it.

  Tipping, it ain't no city in China sucka! Sometimes people don't tip, that is ok. Sometimes people are a total pain in the ass and don't tip; that sucks. Thinks like, "I just want a house coffee, and can you add some steamed milk to that?"; that order requires a tip. Or "can you heat this cookie up in the oven for me?", the correct answer is FUCK NO (heat up the oven to warm your cookie? How inconvenient can you be?), but if I was feeling generous and did it for you then you should tip me for it. But  today an older man got a drink that came to $1.87, he got $.13 back in change. He was really sweet and had a British accent; he left $0.02 in my tip jar and it was the best tip I got all day. Because what mattered was he cared and he was nice, not how much he tipped.

"Bikers all --

            Listen to what Sierra Club's national magazine says about us:

    "A human on a bicycle is more efficient (in calories expended per pound and per mile) than a train, truck, airplane, boat, automobile, motorcycle, skateboard, canoe, or jet pack.  Cycling is more efficient than walking, which takes three times as many calories per mile.  Pound for pound, a person riding a bike can go farther on a calorie of food than a gazelle can running, a salmon swimming, or an eagle flying."  - Sierra, March/April 2008, p. 49.

            Take heart, next time you're sweating up a slope!

Sierra Club: "Now that we have established that you cyclists are so efficient, stay off our fucking trials. Our horses are trying to shit on them"
