There were a great many annoying people at Target. Argh! Even more than usual, because they were descending upon the now-on-sale Christmas decorations like a ravening horde.
But the weather was sunny (though cold and a bit windy) and beautiful, so the biking was very pleasant, especially along the Aquatic Park (though their path leaves something to be desired -- many many potholes). On our way out of the Aquatic Park, going through their parking lot, I got absolutely *drenched* when a car passed me while going through a big, muddy puddle. I squealed so loudly I probably scared the driver! But I thought it was pretty funny once I'd gotten over the shock of the cold water.
On our way home with groceries, biking along the Ohlone Greenway, we passed a public Berkeley basketball court where about a dozen people were playing basketball *on unicycles*. You can see the players (they apparently call their team the Berkeley Revolution) in this video:
Most of the video is shot at the same basketball court where we saw them today. They have a woman on the team now, though, who I don't see in this video. (She was wearing excellent black-and-white striped knee socks which I admired.) We were rather surprised to happen upon them (as I told Shannon, it's a bit surreal, liking something out of Dr. Seuss, to be biking down the street and stumble upon a bunch of people playing basketball on unicycles), but it was definitely cool.
Tomorrow, I plan to vegetate. I plan to enjoy my Christmas toys (i.e., read new books and listen to new music (i.e., The Vampire Diaries soundtrack -- yay!)), eat tasty Christmas candy, and run some very few errands (e.g., visit Caruso and stop by the library). Mostly, I plan to hide out after a *very* social week.
