Did I mention I hate flying...

So I had another early flight this morning, leaving Orange County, CA at 6:45 heading to Chi-Town. The weather was clear from coast-to-coast, smooth sailing for sure. Not so. All my flights went well except for my bike is A.W.O.L. Being told that it was "last seen at gate F2 at 2:35PM CST" is not all that comforting. The nice lady at the United counter in Bloomington said that 97% of the time delayed baggage shows up on the next flight. Thinking that those were pretty good odds i decided to stick in bloomington for a few hours to spend some of my christmas loot.

Returning to the airport after spending $1.59 on a nice new memo pad did not yield the results I had hoped for; my bike is still missing. Looks like i'll be rolling on either the long bus (my bright yellow fixie) or the Ibis that has been collecting dust for the past year. If you are reading this, please say a prayer to the bike gods for the safe return of my trusty steed.

I'm off to The Pig for some tasty libations in an attempt to sooth my separation anxiety.

Peas.

you can always take the ol' ibis out for a spin if united doesn't get you your bike soon.

i'm sure it would appreciate the love

the Ibis is better than the blue scwhinn that I like to sport when the trusty steed isn't available, at least.

Good luck ...
