I can’t wait for the Kickass parade! Now, I realize, I should have put more thought into my bike costume, but I’m hoping a visit to the dollar store will give me the direction I need…

I’m so sad I have to work tonight and miss the parade! I was looking forward to the ride. Everybody kick ass a little extra tonight!

No sh**, I have to work, too. I’ll try to bring my mini to work, so it’s easy to sneak out and participate of the parade…
