...Segway has a new concept vehicle called the Centaur. I still can't afford the no-longer "concept" street scooters they make. Why are all the cool fun things so over priced? (At least by my standards)

...We moved Kirk into his studio apartment on Pine in San Francisco last evening. All of the walking I've done over the past six months has paid off. I didn't feel the least bit winded going up and down the three flights of stairs.
