No, I'm not thinking about running the half.
No, I haven't taken the bike out of the garage since April.

Trivia answer:  "If you're gonna play the game boy, you gotta learn to play it right".
Meanwhile, the word of the day is "Hiatus".
The adjective for the day is "Indefinite".
As in "Indefinite Hiatus".
I'll be around, but ta-ta for now.

Trivia answer: 

If you’re going to play the game, boy, you gotta learn to play it right.


And then pretty much the whole second verse.




After looking at my June and July schedule it’s looking more and more unlikely that I’m going to get that triathlon in.  I’m getting close to the point where I either need to shit or get off the pot.  We shall see.

I may just simply resign myself to gaining that pound a year and making a permanent indention on my couch.  Sigh.




Did you ever notice how people in elevators seek balance?  If there are 4 people they almost always line up 2 on one side, 2 on the other.  When one gets off the remaining 3 divide into some kind of triangle with the center at the door.  Then take away one more and the remaining 2 will split the elevator.

It’s fascinating, really.

Do this:  Next time you get on an elevator break the symmetry.  Either stand on the side where everyone is and force an imbalance of bodies OR (even better) stand with your back to the door.  That totally freaks people out.  Plus it just feels so good and wrong at the same time when you’re doing it.
