  • Everybody’s going surfing
    Water temperature is 62°F (16.7°C). A very nearly perfect break for me. Next: back to life, back to reality. Also: catch a wave and you’re sitting on top of the world. Related: Charlie don’t surf. However: I bodysurf at the beaches and swim at the cove. This ocean, this coast, this birthright of the citizens…
  • In Brief: Happily
    Last night at LA Flash: Chumby Fest! I had the incredible thing happen, I won a Chumby. It’s cute, and hackable. I will be adoring its cuteness and hacking its hackability when I get some time. Work is busy right now, and I’m enjoying it a great deal. It’s stretched my OO skills in PHP5,…
  • Swimmer’s Ear & Colombia
    So I’ve been swimming regularly and since I’ve not swum (is that right right conjugation?) this much since I was a teenager, I suppose it follows that I might come down with the Swimmer’s Ear that was a hallmark of my summers as a teen. I knew something was wrong Saturday as I was having…
  • The Misc on the Bus Goes Round and Round
    I had gotten in the habit of blogging every weekday for the last few weeks, but broke that streak by not blogging on Friday or subsequently, until this lovely Sunday morning. So, yes. What is to say, exactly? The answer is that there are quite a few random datapoints I could mention. Here are a…
  • 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…
  • 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…
  • Weekend Update
    I had some side project-y stuff I wanted to work on, but instead: Saturday I went to the beach, and Sunday we went to Tyler’s two basketball games. I did blog though: about Speed Racer, and about going to the beach, I also uploaded a pile of photos to flickr. This week is going to…
  • Swimming in Malibu
    Water temperatures this weekend are 59 degrees Fahrenheit, according to watchthewater.org. I really wish that site also covered Ventura County. I have to make due with the Nicholas Canyon numbers. I wanted to go to Malibu to lap swim, actually, so I headed out at 10:30am or so. When I got there, however, the pool…
  • So Tired
    So this is me after a slightly longer swim than normal after skipping two days. I wore myself out. I twittered this too, but I’m not sure being immediately sore is the sign of a good workout, or poor form, or overexertion, or not enough warming up, or the gap between times swimming, or just…
  • Beach Time, Not Quite
    It was warm yesterday. I went to the beach late in the day but the water is 56 degrees F. The lifeguard says it doesn’t get into the 60s until June. I now know 56 is too cold for me now, my calves were instantly numb, and not in a good way. Hypothermia is not…
