I biked to University and Neil in an attempt to find the Champaign Do It Best Hardware store. I just realized that I was too far north; it's on Springfield. Doh. But the trip was pretty good - I headed further north... up Neil, right on Bradley, north-west up Bloomington Rd, to hit Home Depot and grab prices for PVC pipes. They've got too many employees there. Or it was employee-inventory-everything day or something. o.O The place was just crawling with employees.

Having gotten prices, I continued north-westwards up Bloomington until I hit Prospect, and then I headed north to find Lowes. Nice place, much cheaper than Home Depot, at least in terms of PVC pipe prices. Was pleased, got lost a bit, found an Arby's, had a delicious sandwich and crappy fries. Then headed back south on Prospect, chanced upon a thrift/clothing store just slightly south of Bradley - didn't find a blue jacket/windbreaker to use as part of my Ritsuka cosplay though. Poop. Shall have to go hunting for that later...

And continued my way south, until I hit Springfield, at which point I turned left and headed home~

Twas good. At the end, I was singing out loud to random songs on my Rio Forge. ^^;; Wonder if anyone saw me... especially since Murder, Murder - Jekyll & Hyde was playing, so there was much chanting of Murder, murder! Hehehe. Insane Asian kid biking down the sidewalk of a busy (car-wise) street.

It was good, but now I've got to do homework, and I'm _tired_. XD

Essentially, you can make your own route, and it calculates distance... I think it's based on zoom->mi/pixel distance calculations, and not actual streets, since it seems like you can click anywhere...

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/

Basic instructions for use:
Click start recording. Double-click on a precise location on the map to start. Double-click again anytime your route turns... (the map draws straight lines only)

Click on "Save route" to save the route.

Here's my route today http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=504651
On the way there, I passed the Dallas & Co Costumes & Magic, which turned out to be a better costume/outfit store than Dandelion, my destination.

Unfortunately, Dallas & Co Costumes & Magic lacked longer cat tails - they had 'cat tails' a bit longer than a foot, which... come to think of it - I don't know how long I want. I felt like it should be longer, but I can't remember exactly how long Ritsuka's tail was. Yes, I want to try and cosplay Ritsuka for Halloween. It should be relatively easy, since aside from slightly longer hair (mmm, may need a wig..) and that white-tape-thing on his face (in most pictures), and his blue jacket, he's pretty normal.

[edit] ::vaguely irritated:: Ritsuka's ears are also much bigger than the clip-on things from Hot Topic that I got back in high school. Blah.

[append] Jeeze, I now have a major disliking of Soubi. He's all "love, love, love,"...pedo. And Ritsuka falls into his clutches way too easily. Yes, he's lonely, yes, he's screwed up, but, narrrrgh. Stupid spineless brat. Am having second thoughts about cosplaying Ritsuka.
