last weekend, i ran 7 miles. my right calf cramped really badly blah blah blah and couldn’t run since Tuesday. ran another 7 miles today and it was beautiful - i wish i had my camera. no cramping, no pain. beautiful views. this whole running thing? i think i get it now.
god save us all.
these earthquakes, tsunamis, destruction… it all scares me. please pray for all those affected.

I can hear every single word the see-you-next-Tuesday above us screeches. And she is one angry bitch—always screaming at someone on the phone or, I presume, yelling at her husband (from whom I never hear a peep). I’ve never heard her talk in a pleasant tone. I feel sorry for her, actually, until… i feel your pain. i really do. i don’t hear our neighbor’s voice. just the...

So the President of Toyota’s last name is “Toyoda”. And this brought me to contemplate why Toyota has a ‘t’ and not a ‘d’. Well, it turns out, the ‘d’ was changed to the ‘t’ to make the pronunciation easier. (really. the t’s and d’s are tricky, i guess) and also because it takes 8 strokes to write...

when one starts to run regularly, does one’s body start to react differently to food? for example, i think im digesting it much quicker, i’m always hungry, and nothing really tastes good except for oranges and tangerines. and water. oh, and im burping more than i ever have in my life. is this normal?

i saw something about this on twitter but couldn’t find anything about it yesterday. i cannot imagine what this poor man was going through, what kind of heart ache he was experiencing that made him feel like there was no point in living. those people who were encouraging him to jump, that were laughing, snapping pictures, encouraging him to end his life are so callous. insensitive. they...
