Today I biked from 9th Ave/16th St. to 20th St./FDR. When I arrived I docked my bike. The yellow light turned on and didn't lock the bike. I tried a few times, fail. Time to find another station. 1st Ave/15th St. had 8 docks, so I docked there. Yellow light turned on, never turned green. But the bike seemed secured so I decided "whatever".
Later I checked my trip history and the bike was marked as returned at 20th St./FDR. Sigh.
Winter: "Oh, it's 37 out. It's so hot I might not need a jacket!"
Summer: "Oh, it's going to get down to 65 tonight? Better get out my down."
That was sudden.
I think the hardest part was unpacking all the frames. I also had to draw a diagram and do some math to figure out the distance between the posters so that they'd be centered on the part of the wall above the fireplace that sticks out, but it worked out quite nicely. (I did the math, marked the positions of the sticky nails, applied them all, then hung everything up. Planning works!)
These "sticky nails" are amazing:
They are easy to apply (I thought "that's it?" approximately 6 times), and they come down just fine (I did a trial run to eyeball the height). They also come with an extra set of tape so you can use each twice, and little velcro strips so you can level the posters and stick them flush against the wall, as the frames naturally want to hang angled down.
I'm making a note here: huge success.
(I was going to take the screenshot where's she's scratching her back and making a funny face, but then I'd have to explain it to all my non-anime friends, so this is the non-ideal compromise. Maybe I'll troll pixiv for something better.)
