The Drexel students are back in my building and so I must open enrollment in my course "Riding An Elevator 101" also known as "Jesus let me get off before you try to get on" or "This one is going up! I said it three times, you idiot child!"

Weather looks great for a bike ride tomorrow. Thinking about repeating this route, roughly. Anyone want to join?

or was it ?
