  • I’m proud of my regularity. SWIMMING regularity.
    At 7am this morning at the pool in Camarillo the kid (okay, he’s probably like 18 or 19, but I’ve taken to thinking of anyone I estimate is 30 years or less as a kid) at the desk recommends the frequent pass. I pay $3 a pop to swim there, and with this pass I…
  • AIDS/LifeCycle – Sponsor Mok!
    My friend and co-worker Mok is riding in the AIDS/LifeCycle — Mok’s Donation Page: Mok is super cool, he advised me on where to find biking clothes and equipment down in L.A., and when I asked him where to buy swimming goggles, he pulled a pair out of his workout bag at work! That’s seriously…
  • Dawn Patrol
    Woke up early this morning and hit the pool early. Dawn Patrol baby! Hehe. I wonder if you know that idiom. Do you? Well let’s let the popup window spewing advertising fest about.com tell you: What is a “dawn patrol?”: For those unfamiliar with the term, “dawn patrol” refers to a surfer’s arrival to the…
  • Back in the saddle, again…
    Headed out. Only a little phlegm, and only a bit of vomiting this morning. Luckily I’ve scarcely eaten. My head is clear, my fever is gone, and I’m not coughing at all. My throat is a bit sore. There was a bomb threat yesterday at work apparently, but I’d really like to get out of…
  • A Few Updates
    We have a tiny grapefruit tree in our yard. I’m told the fruit is small and tart. We have possums in the yard. Leah saw a cat-sized one maybe 2 weeks ago. Yesterday I saw a tinier, cuter one. We go through so many headphones and earbuds. I think the kids really do eat them….
  • Sickness’ End and DOS Joe
    This morning, after a fitful 14 hours of sleep, I woke up feeling better. This crud I got — microorganisms all taking over my whole nasopharyngeal area and causing systemic disruption that among other things caused me to miss swimming 3 days in a row. Actually, I shouldn’t go today either, so that’s like 4…
  • Sickly Joe; Ubuntu; Finances; April Wrap-Up
    Yesterday I went swimming early, which was great. I was tired after about 15 minutes, but pressed on to do a full 30 minutes. I actually noticed myself getting tired the night before at about 20 minutes, but went 45. One of the things about exercising (ugh! I despise that word!) is that I’m more…
  • Hypoxic Training?
    So yesterday I worked a short day, then Leah and I did errands, including more last-phase moving from the old house. At the end of the day, Leah went to a blogger meetup thing in Calabasas, and while she was there I went to the great public pool near there. I swam for longer than…
  • Quiet Faith in Man
    This post by Dave Segovia, who I’ve mentioned before, VINCENT, THOMAS, and ME has been knocking about in my brain for a few weeks. Much as we worry about the toxins and pollutants and sure as they do us damage, science and medicine end up tasked with correcting the wrongs, they sort of do the…
  • Uh oh, I am unwell
    My nose is a-snifflin’. My head is a-stuffy. This is not optimal. I am wishin’ and hopin’ for health, and also mean to get into some fluids and whatnot. Also rest where possible. But I feel so energetic!
