DS just made some randomly correct science statement out of the blue. When I heard it, I asked "Where did you learn that?" expecting to hear Bill Nye, I Love Toy Trains, or something like that. He looked at me and said "Phineas and Ferb."

All-righty then.


So, I found myself wondering - who decided that a good name for an info service would be "kgb"? I mean, my first thought when I hear "KGB" is not 542542, but rather, Комитет государственной безопасност.

(Yes, I copy/pasted it. Blame the original if there is a typo.)



Last night, I bit the bullet and registered for an event that I have considered for the past couple of years - the Howl at the Moon ultra. A timed, 8-hour run in the middle of August in Illinois. How bad could it be, right?

Running streak update

Some time ago, I mentioned that I was trying to run on a daily basis. So far, I have maintained that streak for more than 260 days. Yay me.
