Sniff my Seat

I hate celebrity gossip; despise it. It's annoying that I most often can't get through a single day without reading or hearing the names of Tom C____ or Par__ ______. Oh, I hate it. I only scour online gossip sites and blog, and watch ET and Excess Whoreywood because I'm in media, and just need to keep up, ya know?

So, be thankful I'm not regurgitating the crap about Winerhouse or Tara or the latest vapid Out mag cover.
But This! It's about a bicycle, so it goes in:
Courteney Cox has bought Jennifer Aniston a $12,000 Chanel bicycle.

The actress bought her ‘Friends’ pal the expensive pushbike after she expressed an interest taking up cycling.

A source close to the star said: “Jennifer said she wanted to start bike riding because it’s such good exercise. So Courteney sent her the new, ultra-chic Chanel bicycle.”

The bike features eight speeds, weighs 36lbs and comes complete with a quilted leather seat and saddlebag emblazoned with the famous Chanel ‘CC’ logo.

The source continued: “Courteney only sent Jennifer the bike two weeks ago but she already loves it! She goes out riding all the time.”

I always hated Friends. Now I hate it more. In fact, just last week, the theme song in its entirety was played at the gym, so I ran outside for a few laps around the building until it was over.

I mean, WTF? Does Aniston hire a bodyguard when she parks her designer wheels? Buy a Gucci Kryptonite lock?

Anyway, I'm going to meet with some real friends tonight at the SF Bike Coalition's Love on Wheels. I doubt there'll be any Chanel bikes valet-parked.

Afterward, only like two blocks away, as I posted before, tonight I'll be walking for hours in the dark with a candle and hundreds of others to support Gus Van Sant's vision of Harvey Milk. It's not as impressive as a hunky ACT UP pal's cameo as a talking porn mag in My Own Private Idaho, but it'll do.
