PC Magazine water bottle

I got this cool-looking water bottle last month, courtesy of Art Ilano, as a token for presenting at the PC Magazine Roadshow in Davao. By far it's the best speaker's token I've ever received. Thanks, Art.

Unfortunately, it received a severe beating on my biking trip around Panglao. It fell once, and the rest of time it was jarred and shaken and scratched. It's a little worse for wear, but I still love it.

I also now realize the importance of bringing a water bottle on the bike. It's just so handy to have around. And the way it's designed forces me to drink in little sips instead of taking it all in at once.

Additional lesson: putting Coke in a bike-mounted water bottle is a bad idea. Duh, what was I thinking? But then again, I'm just exercising the "village idiot" part of my monicker.
