Sara Kingdom In the 22nd Century

So you're a detective.  You work for New Scotland Yard.  You're chasing a rogue geneticist, and suddenly it turns out his accomplice is the clone of a three-hundred-year-old criminal mastermind.  Before you know it, you're pulling the body of a dead detective out of the coffin where it's been preserved in honey so that you can reverse-age him and use his diaries to create a compudroid replica of his sidekick.  Your boss isn't too thrilled by any of this.  You're probably not too thrilled by any of this.  But these things happen.  You're Beth Lestrade.

 

The great thing about the future is data.  Data and wrist computers.  I've got both.  I need to use both better.  So half this challenge is going to be tracking weekly trends in my sleep, exercise, and measurements.  (Also, using the idle alarm as a reminder to both move and hydrate.)

 

Weekly Bonuses
0 Average hours of sleep
0 Bonus for average sleep over 7 hours (5 points)
0 Bonus for more sleep than last week (5 points)
0 Days of hitting step goal

0 Average steps per day/1000
0 Bonus for improvement over last week (5 points)
0 Number of workouts per week
0 Bonus for waist-hip measurements decreasing (5 points)

 

The other half of the challenge is going to be a scaled-down version of previous challenges, so I can keep my attention on the important things to track.

 

Points
0 hours of sleep
0 Workout (5 points available)
0 Liters of water
0 Meditation (5 points available)
0 Make a Daily Schedule (1 point available)
0 Achilles tendon or quads stretches

The trick is, talk to everyone and then all you have to keep track of is whom you've missed. :P

 

I tried that.  There aren't enough hours to the day for me.  Only those of you with a TARDIS can pull it off.

Also, I can't really talk about it, because it's very preliminary and stuff, but I might be one of the monks with exciting job developments this challenge.  Job developments that might put me near a dojo again.  Not one in my precise style, which makes me sad, but probably near enough for government work, which makes me happy.

Following because I'm curious about what you could possibly replace Vetinari with. 

 

Ah, I see the flaw with this challenge already.  Vetinari cannot be replaced.  It's been tried.  It never works.

Well...don't start any secret societies, call dragons, etc.  Maybe just quietly do your thing...careful of the scorpions.

Good thinking.  The problem with most Plans to Unselect the Patrician is that they're too elaborate or not properly planned.

Job developments are very exciting. =) Here's hoping they pan out for you and put you back in striking distance (see what I did there?) of your style.

 

They really are.  I'm trying not to get too excited, because it's still preliminary days, but... it's very exciting. :)

On the one hand, I'm happy you have potential job prospects.  On the other, my bitter core becomes more bitter because I do not have the same.

Vetinari may be impossible to replace, but one can draw inspiration from other sources without supplanting his position.

There are reasons you should not be jealous, which I don't really want to talk about while things are so preliminary.  It is, personally, a fascinating career development, but that view would not be widely shared.

 

I did think of that particular Vetinari quote when this news came up.  There was a certain angel-appearing-and-offering-a-change-of-life element to it.  And the interesting thing about angels is, you only ever get the one.  So I'm jumping, because, really, I want a change.

Don't worry about qualifying it (for us). If it's right for you, you're meant to have it, go for it and put your whole self into it. Sounds like an adventure.

Crossing my fingers for you!  And I totally get the "weird career path development" steps that most people wouldn't agree with.

 

Best of luck!

I'm gonna warn you all now, this is some really shitty animation, and it does not hold up.  But.  Sherlock Holmes with spaceships, androids, and badass ladies.  Beat that.

I am alarmed that I remember seeing this on television and saddened that I never took the time to watch it.

 

I will be correcting that.  You will probably hate me for it.

Just as an FYI, you are addressing someone that still thinks SIlverhawks was an amazing cartoon to grow up with.

If Sherlock quotes don't get you going, then I'm afraid our love is doomed from the start.

Then you are in for a treat.  Schedule 20 minutes a day.

Sherlock Holmes was many admirable things, but particularly gifted with women he was not1.

 

 

1At least, not the ones who weren't lady bicyclists.  An unusual exception, but there you go.
