In other news: I finally got a bicycle. It is a Bianchi Milano and I absolutely love it. Now I can ride in to school. And I have added nice baskets to the back, so that I can actually breathe while I'm riding (I have a lot of books to carry with me...)
This isn't my actual bike; mine is black. But it is the best picture of it that I could find. I love this style of bicycle -- the covered chain and fenders make it a lot easier for me to use it for commuting. I can ride it in a skirt.
I bought it at The Bent Spoke, where they were very nice and went out of their way to pick it up from the warehouse for me. I first saw it and test-rode it at The Missing Link (unfortunately, they'd sold it before I decided to get it).
