"You were dressed as Anastasia from 50 Shades and were looking for your Mr. Grey."

He didn't get to claim his wish from the fairy godmother.

Fate brought them together, handcuffs kept them apart.

Could that connection have been the IV?

"If we happen to meet again" is a long from "let's go to Tunisia together."

She says she's not self-absorbed, it's just... you know... lip gloss.

"I'd like to see you in just a bow tie."

If there are what appear to be random flashing in Saratoga...

I had the pleasure of experiencing protected bike lanes in Montreal recently. It really made for a fast, efficient way to move both bike & car traffic. As a biker, it was easy to see how to navigate a busy road, and it was nice to have a bit of buffer/safety from traffic (or just knowing that the possibility of a car swerving in to you was incredibly low because of these features). As a driver, it was nice to see all of the bikes in one area, so that you don't have the errant biker who decides to blow through most of the traffic signals the wrong way down a street.
