Joshua Tree, ocotillo, and a touch of color in a colorless landscape… Accidentally deleted my picture of the cholla cactus. Amazing how these species only live in select areas mere minutes, yet worlds apart.

FYI, the ocotillo is about 15’ tall. No scale in picture.

Dear Librarian, the Game of Thrones graphic novel, though comic book-esque, should not shelved in the “Children’s Section”

my wife (and by “graphic novel” we mean hella graphic)

Gettin’ there.

That moment when you check in for a flight for a vacation with the family

it feels good.

Thank you Interwebs. Thank you.

Have you ever run a long distance, like, over 10 miles?

I shit you not. This was asked of me.

My obese coworker who is in the Chicago Marathon next month is getting antcy. He’s covered a lot of miles, but he’s worried that he hasn’t covered 20 miles at one go. His “training plan” (generic and pulled from the Internet) says not to go long this weekend. His “running friend” who finished her first marathon this year has different advice.

So he asked me if I know about running. My guess is that the conversations we have had were about something else entirely.

So he asked me some questions. I gave him some answer. We started talking about hydration. The guy did 17 miles in 7 hours and for a 90 minute stretch he did not have access to water. Yes, for an hour and a half he drank nothing. He never urinates during a run. He “doesn’t like carrying a water bottle.”

Houston, we have a problem.

DUDE!!! You ain’t drinking enough. In fact you are destroying yourself. Get them fluids in ya. A 9 hour event is brutal. Must take care of the body.

Really stoked for him. Also really hope he can learn to drink some water

Career thing back to being on partially propped open door with a likelihood of closing.

Not the clean transition I was hoping for, but when dealing with scared execs one can only count on…. constant change.

Must keep on keepin’ on.

I don’t like Twitter.

The Los Angeles School District handed out its first batch of iPads. It took students a week to hack the devices so they could surf the web, etc. In San Francisco, the kids could’ve done that in an hour. And the Dodgers suck.
