Weekend Update

  • I went for a run for the first time in a dog’s age today. Put in a little over 3.5 miles at 11 minutes a mile. Not so good, but not that bad for a 28 year old with an arthritic knee, a 9 month old, and a year plus of mostly sedentary living. My knee hurts, but the weather is beautiful.
  • What the hell, man. When I come to the cash register to purchase my item, all I want to do is exchange money for product and get the hell out of your store. I do not:
    1. have the store credit card;
    2. want the store credit card;
    3. and will not give you my phone number/​zip code;
    4. want to search around for another item that will enable me to save $5 while spending $10 more; and
    5. care about the customer satisfaction survey that I can fill out online or by phone that will enable me to get an additional 10% off my purchase of $50 or more within the next five days.
  • Went to a show at Now That’s Class. Wishing the hip hop scene was bigger or more easily accessible, not sure which it needs to be.
  • I was excited that the generic brand of instant oatmeal was on super sale.
  • I’m planning on building a road bike again this summer, hopefully I’ll actually get to do it. The first order of business is finding a 62 – 64cm early-​80s steel frame from the Ohio City Bike Coop. Somehow I don’t think a frame that size is going to be easy to come by.
