Spring in downtown NYC!

I spotted this lovely thing while grabbing coffee with Bud this afternoon. It made me want to make a yellow cake with pink icing.

Cake or death? Cake, please.

I'm on the lookout for a bike again. Three things about my current bike: that it's from the 70s, that it's a cruiser, and that it's a girl's bike make it next to impossible to carry to and from my walk-up. So it's permanently in my apartment now. What I need: a single speed (fewer gears: lighter, also more nimble for quick streets-of-NY decisions), and a boy's bike (good for hoisting onto my shoulder when carrying up stairs). I hope I find something before it gets too hot to commute.
