So guys, I did it! I got my scooter fixed and today I rode around the neihborhood a bit. Then I rode to the gas station (~2.5 miles) and back again. I'm planning to ride it to and from work on Wednesday.

I'm still nervous on it. I wonder if I'll ever stop being scared? I said to Chris today that it's so completely out of character for me to even have the thing. I mean when do I do things that are inherently unsafe? Pretty much never. I pretty much am the biggest wuss to ever wuss. I sit up straight and keep my hands at 10 and 2 (although we are not supposed to do that anymore, because of air bags, did you know that?) and purchase cars with side curtain air bags. I cut away from my body when I use knives (learned that one the hard way, actually) and stand behind guide rails when someone that isn't me is changing a tire and wear earplugs to loud concerts. I'm trying to think of more safety nerd stuff that I do and I can't come up with anything but I'm sure there are plenty. Anyway. It's crazy that I'm riding around on this thing. But I'm going to do it. Because it gets great gas mileage and it's actually responsible for me to ride a scooter to work. So take that.

    Today is Thursday. Settlement on the sale of our house is Tuesday. I took the dog for a walk today, and I started to get a little emotional.

    So it wasn't until late 2013 that I learned how amazing Ursula K. Le Guin is, and how much I adore her. I have been slow in getting through her…
