The truth is always in the last place you look

I've been hunting for days across Ebay etc for a suitable bike to convert into a fixie (my latest obsession). And I think I've found it. The perfect size, light as a feather, '80s vintage Trek frame, horizontal dropouts and even dropout adjusters.

In my sodding basement.

But the catch is that it belongs to my housemate, and I think she's quite attached to it.

AAAAGH. What do I do? How much money will I have to offer her to let me restore and ride it?

Boo!

Never thought I'd see you in these pages. . .

Just running off to Oxford for a visit to the old college, but maybe we should catch up in London sometime.

Re: Boo!

Well hello. I think I know who you are.

Care to give me any more clues?

Re: Boo!

Hum, how to give clues without killing the mystery of internet anonymity. . .

Bear Lane, tutor, poetry, confusion, and lost opportunities for good hot baths?

Re: Boo!

Internet anonymity? Internet fiddlesticks. I stalked your website and deduced that must be who you are.

(And Arethusa in the shower...)

My website is www.sebastianmary.com - there's an email address there if you want to get in touch.
