Personal stuff today, and not much else. Well, some news, but only in the videos. The first video is Sen. Chris Dodd talking about health care reform.
I’m sitting here, resting after a slow but happy day, basking in the glow of my computer screen, listening to the sound of a repeat of “This week in Tech” and thunder in the background, from the storms that are passing through the area. Calm and happy and relaxed right now. Gonna be a busy day tomorrow, I have a 13 hour day at the office ahead of me tomorrow, and a 12 hour day on Tuesday, so today is all about the rest.
I woke up early, and for the first time in a long time went for a semi long run on back to back days. 8 miles yesterday, and 8 more today. The times I ran were roughly equivalent, a 7:42.5 m/m pace on Saturday and a 7:41.87 today. After I got home, I worked out just a wee bit, 80 modified squat thrusts, a few minutes of shadow boxing, and some crunches, just to add a few extra minutes of sweat to my day. That was a bit hard though, seeing how my quads, hammies and calves are all sore.
I watched some meet the press, where David Gregory interviewed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It was good stuff. Watch some of it.
I went over to my parents house and hung out, did laundry, and watched baseball with my father. That’s always cool. We are both Yankee fans and we both have the same taste and sense of humor about the crap that people do. Hung out for a few hours, relaxed and had fun just vegging with dad. That gave me a few happy relaxed hours, where I got some down time with Mom and Dad, which is always nice.
When I got home, I relaxed with the wife and the cats and just had fun doing nothing. Played guitar for a bit, watched some videos, made some stir fry with my wife. Played some games, on pogo.com and facebook. Got my haircut.
A happy day.
Today’s Nuggets, Semi randomly put together, Via Wikiquote: Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it. Nathaniel Hawthorne
The system of life on this planet is so astoundingly complex that it was a long time before man even realized that it was a system at all and that it wasn’t something that was just there. Douglas Adams
This country has gotten where it is in spite of politics, not by the aid of it. That we have carried as much political bunk as we have and still survived shows we are a super nation. Will Rogers
