November 2007

Let's try this out. At the end of each month, I'll post something personal - a recap of the months activities and some stats. It's a nice way for me to save information, but will no doubt be mundane for most of you. And you'll be subjected to my scrupulous data collecting (though I will spare you data on each item of food that I digested over the past thirty days). Read at your own risk.

Highlights: My sister Joni and her hubby Mike came to visit over Thanksgiving. We ate, watched movies and all out relaxed. We pretty much did the same thing with best friends Paul and Brooke Kind who were out visiting just after the Holiday. Though we did manage to squeeze in a quick trip to the mountains and play scrabble at a clip of three games per day. Both visits were perfect.

    KD - I figure from the Wigger St. house and the mentoring and the hiking and everything else that I probably am still in the hole. :)

    Do you keep a nutty little notebook for all of your statistics? I have held a fascination with such things for decades...

    Random: Before I ask you a totally random and potentially embarassing question, I'll ask this one: Did you ever work for Denny Cherette?

    Bex - Yep, I use an excel spreadsheet. It's fascinatingly sick is probably what it is. I think the desire to count mileage came when we moved to LA and walked everywhere. Then I added the rest of the date including what food I ate. That probably comes from the fact that I need serious accountability. It gets really old to write "swedish fish" every other day. :)

    Abby - I did work for Denny. I'm pretty sure I remember your Dad. How did you link up to this site?

    Loved seeing the pics! I'm all about the data . . . I'll look forward to your "end of month stock."

    Ok, then you are the Josh I remember from IPA... One of the most embarassing times I remember from working there was when Denny basically tried to "force" us to go on a date. Ahh gotta love the man, but sometimes you don't have LIKE him :) I stumbled onto your site through Matt Lipan, a friend from college.
