"Undermining my electoral viability since 2001."

Trends: Positive

Positive things:

  • Back up on the bike! It's hard to underestimate the value of getting natural endorphins in the mix, and circulating the lymphatic system.
  • After a weekend of feeling sort of like a shut-in, having much better social times at work and at home.
  • I (heart) the world cup. It's better than the Olympics, I think.
  • Pandora radio on my Android as I walk and cruise. The two "stations" I am rocking now are Mark Ronson and Wolfmother. I particularly like thinking about the physics of listening to that as I ride said bike.

I know I'm in a better mood because I see beautiful people around again rather than inhabit a dark grey ugly zombieland, and I'm tolerant of failure and setbacks. It's a better way to be – more effective, not to mention more pleasant — and I'm hoping I can sail through the storm like this.
