give me a break

so last night, while i was attending the stumptown comics after party at cosmic monkey, someone stole my rear wheel.

it was a pretty nice rim with a $45, red striped, 23x700 tire. i am basically out ninety bucks, which is pretty lame. thankfully, my friend was there and gave me a ride home, but my bike has been rendered pretty useless until i get paid on friday. at my house we have a couple extra front wheels and tires and tubes, but no extra rear wheels. i've asked a few of my friends via the ol' telephone if any of them have a wheel i could borrow until friday with no success. on the off chance any of you have one i can borrow, please let me know.

i was having a really great day yesterday, what a horrible ending.

::edit:: looks like my boss is my hero, she took me to the bike shop and was, apparently, planning on giving me a $250 bonus this week already, so she just gave it to me early.. wow.
