A Coder in Courierland

This be a kuro5hin piece about a programmer who blew off his job on a cubefarm to take up the romantic career of bicycle courier. I got to admit, the call of the courier is strong. In what other jobs do you get to ride around on your mountain bike in a maniacal fashion dodging in and out of traffic? Fuck, I'd do that now for kicks. Think I may have to look into the possibilities.

The piece is set in my adopted home metropolis of Toronto, which is cool.

Time for another cup of tea, me thinks. Coffee be aaaall gone.
