  1. Wow, look at that weather!
  2. Never saw that TED talk. Thanks for posting! Pretty inspirational.
  3. That looks "not too bad." You should do it!
  4. Wow, tough day at work! I'm sorry it's hard right now. Keep chin up. *hugs*
  5. Biking 6 days in a row is amazing! And the points... they are real.
  6. Way to avoid the donuts! Good going.
  7. Glad you are feeling better! Still sounds like a bit of a rough time. Thinking about you.. *hugs*
  8. I'm glad you have good coworkers who are there for you. Take good care of yourself... it's only work, right?
  9. Something strange has happened to my ankle. Definitely a stress injury, maybe having to do with going from high heels to running in zero drop shoes. I've been trying to do low-impact activity to build miles while it heals. Yesterday went for a 1.8 mile walk, today 5.5 miles on the elliptical. On track so far. Work has been super-stressy, relating to the prez being in town and paying special attention to me. Yes, yes, I know, I am fabulous. My manager is starting to be perceivably annoyed. It's a problem, because she controls things like where I sit, my bonus, and future projects, so I generally try to stay on her good side. Guess I just have to try harder. I hate office politics! Yarg!! Been watching lots of car chases in LA on Youtube. Some are fast and scary, and everyone gets hurt. Others are just funny:
  10. Thanks Madhat. That's a nice way of looking at it.
  11. I go to a lot of conferences, and it seems even the lesser ones offer some ability to expand the social network. If not... Chew lots of gum? Sent from my KIW-L24 using Tapatalk
  12. Hope you are successfully getting back on track! But it looks like you're doing well from here.
  13. Crack the whip, Fuji! Tell em who's boss. You can do it!
  14. "Without struggle, there can be no progress." Work! Looks like you're doing great, by the way.
  15. It's always a good feeling when you realize you've over prepared for meetings. Congrats on getting your daughter the right level of support! Otherwise, looks like you're doing good, consistent work over here. Nice going!
  16. Wow! That is serious squatting! Really impressive lifting!
  17. "It is time. Beam me down." In the remaining moments aboard her ship, Primeval the Borg Queen listens carefully to the familiar voices of the collective, whispering the details of the map stolen from the Scout Leader's base camp. She holds the map in her mind's eye one last time, carefully memorizing the lay of the land. Suddenly, the voices stop, the map disappears, and she finds herself in a clearing on an alien planet. She looks around and sees a half-eaten jar of pickled cabbage labeled in block letters @Nomad Jay's Home Cooking. "This looks delicious! Too bad I don't digest food," she thinks to herself. She hears a noise. Behind the trees, the thud of boots comes toward her. She looks around for a weapon, but only sees the jar of cabbage. "Where are the drones when you need them?" she asks herself, but a second later the legion begins to emerge from the trees. Only one thing to do now- Run! Bionic legs, at atomic speed, carry her away. Faster and faster she travels, turning on Rush's "Subdivisions" in the mP3 player she had programmed into her exo skeleton earlier that day. The scenery blurs around her, until suddenly she stops at the top of a hill 3 miles away.
  18. Thanks to you for that... Thank you... Thank you! Yeah, lots of happy times.
  19. Glad to hear your job is better. That can make a huge difference. Will you still look?
  20. Sounds like a fun race!! I agree with Scatterbunn's advice, a lot of folks like those couch to ___ k apps. Do you have much experience running?
  21. Week 1/2 I didn't report last week! So you're getting double trouble this week. Goal 1 Distance Run miles: 25 per week... 15 last week and 20 this week 35/100 Goal 2 Strength Yoga class: 1 per week 1/4 Pushups: 3 x per week 5/12 Squats: 3 x per week 3/12 10 Goal 3 Diet Track calories using MFP, 7 days per week... Perfect week 1, missed 2 this week 12/28 100 g protein per day... Perfect protein 14/28 Goal 4 Meditation 10 minutes of meditation, at least 5 days per week 9/20 Weekly Score 0/4 No big prizes this time. Maybe next time!! A lot happened last week. It was my birthday so I went way off diet, eating lots of pie... pizza pie, pie pie, etc. Pie, glorious pie! I ended up having to work on my birthday, but made up for it by spending the day listening to Will Wheaton reading Ready Player One. Now my very favorite book. It's gotten me listening to Rush and playing text games. Found a good free one on Android called Magium, it's sort of choose your own adventure, but with stats. Been a lot of fun to explore. Some sad stuff happened this week, too. Found out that one of my close friends from college passed away in his sleep. We don't know the details... May have been drug related, and intentional. I haven't seen him in a couple of years, but we were in touch. We were actually supposed to get together the last time I was in California, but it didn't work out. I guess you never think about meeting someone like it's going to be the last time. I've been reading back over all of our text conversations from when I was 24... And really seeing how much I've grown since those days, and also noticing what a self-involved wanker I was. Hopefully the fact that I can observe that quality now indicates that I am less like that. Always something to be aware of. Anyway, took a look at the celebration of life happening in Portland, and figured out I hate everyone else on the guest list, so I will likely be doing a celebration of life on my own, looking at pictures of him, reading back over his e-mails, and listening to some of his music. It's sad.
  22. I don't want to go running! I don't want to go running! Oh fine, I'll go running Sent from my KIW-L24 using Tapatalk
