Pretty much just got told "Surprise! 3-Day weekend!" today. I guess sometimes my job being ridiculously unpredictable -can- result in good things?

Anyway, secrets abound and I only have a really vague grasp of what exactly is going on right now but heeeey 3 day weekend go.

Just bought about $200 in electronics components... about 4000 components.

Much excite.

Last night I rode my bike naked through Chicago with about 2000 other people in various states of undress, and spectators were both respectful and enthusiastic for the most part.

Neat. Portland did the World Naked Bike Ride last weekend (the 7th). They don't know how many people were in it this year yet (they have to count them manually), but last year was over 8,000. It's kind of a big deal here. It's cool that other places do it, too, and that you did it. Is it super relaxed there? Here it's basically a leisurely meetup with a few bands and a body painting station that turns into a short-ish ride that then turns back into a laid back party.

Leisurely meetup, yes. Short ride, no. The meetup had a DJ and a body paint section, as well as a photobooth. The ride itself was about 15 miles and really stop and go, and took about 4 hours and ended back at the start. There was a bonfire going at that point, but I had to skip off to catch the last train home. But everyone was pretty cool, even had a number of spectators join in spontaneously. One girl I was talking to said she called and cancelled on a friend of hers, "I'm not going to make it, I'm going to ride my bike naked." It's amusing to me how open and casual everyone was. I feel like I got to know a few very well, but caught very few names.

I don't really know how long ours was. They don't disclose the route (to discourage creepy people with cameras), but I'd guess it's about 10 miles. It takes a long time, though, because the first people are almost halfway there by the time the last people start. Ours used to be a circle, but wasn't this year. But there was an after party hosted by an indie newspaper that let you party naked (and with a noticeable security presence). Anyway, good times. Smile

I would have loved to had stayed for the after party, but that was getting started about a half hour before the last train out of the city until morning, so next year I'm just going to have to find a place to crash in the city overnight. Hopefully I'll have a friend in the city that's willing to have a guest arrive in the wee hours of the morning.

Oh, and I only know how long the ride was because someone tracked it as it happened. Probably a smartphone app. The route was not disclosed beforehand for the same reasons you mentioned.

Apparently I was one of the photographer's favorites at the photobooth for the event. That makes me happy. NSFW, obviously

For those who haven't met or seen me before, I have the words 'Not crude, not lewd, just nude' proudly displayed.

I was just selected to host a weekly open mic night, which means that I have a guaranteed paying gig every week for the foreseeable future.

I was about to make some awkward comment about how I was just looking at your penis when I realized that I've seen a bunch of sinfesters nude. didn't we used to have a website where we posted naked pictures of ourselves?

Yeah, I can't say that I miss the site, or the thread that led up to it. I'm obvious not against sharing nudity but there was a lot wrong with that thread.

The underage nudes were kinda problematic.
