Today I kept sort of forgetting that I'm leaving *tomorrow.*
I went to 12:10 Eucharist at SSJE
(Sarah) and marketsquare
(Chris) today. (Who knew there was a monastery/chapel on Mem. Drive next to JFK Park? Not me.) ( Read more...Collapse )
I invited them back to Spangler for lunch and felt bad that I then abandoned them to go back to my desk (having already essentially taken my lunch hour).
Chris: "How do you two know each other?"
Sarah: "From LiveJournal, I guess."
Chris: "Oh, the old-fashioned way."
Heart like whoa! So much better than last time when we (and Ari) tried to explain LiveJournal to Jan :)

The National More Light Presbyterians Conference
Atlanta, GA. - August 31-September 2, 2007
I'm tempted (would be moreso if they actually had a schedule up). I would feel really weird taking Friday off the week I get back, though. Maybe next year?

They now have tags on the machines in the gym explaining that you can plug your headphones into the thingies they attached to the machines and switch between the half a dozen channels (each tv is on a different channel, so switching it on your machine switches which one your headphones tune to).
I didn't push quite as hard on the elliptical today as I did last time, but still respectable:1mi @ 11:23min
2 mi @ 23:05min
2.58?mi @ 30min
I've been drafting a post about the daily_deviant thing, so hopefully I can get that finished when I get back from Convo -- kicking off IBARW
has the most comprehensive coverage I've seen of the Twin Cities bridge collapse."The Interstate Hwy. 35W bridge over the Mississippi River collapsed during the evening rush hour Wednesday, dumping an estimated 50 vehicles into the water and onto the land below"
