I rode my bike to work for the third time this morning.  I started before dawn and the trail was covered in layers of mist, colored blue by the slow rising sun.

A new health milestone:  I didn’t walk up one single hill this morning and my ass is no longer bruised from the ride on Sunday.

The river is up (Reedy River – ignore the part about pollution).  After it has rained, the river produces a torrent of brown rapids.  It’s like God had put too much creamer in his coffee, deemed it unfit to drink and poured it through a crack in the city.  Beautiful in ways that only dirty water can be.

In other news: Old men who walk early in the morning are not friendly.  Maybe I need another haircut.

Last night I started watching Catch Me If You Can for the first time, and so far, I’m loving it especially the opening credits. Vintage fun.

Well, I guess it’s the time of year to want things that you really can’t afford.

It’s here.

I’m a fan.

Please listen to this.  I’m begging you.

This episode of This American Life explores what happened with the sub prime mortgage drop.

A special program about the housing crisis produced in a special collaboration with NPR News. We explain it all to you. What does the housing crisis have to do with the turmoil on Wall Street? Why did banks make half-million dollar loans to people without jobs or income? And why is everyone talking so much about the 1930s? It all comes back to the Giant Pool of Money.”

This is something we should know.

Straight and to the point. (design on the other hand, is a bit different – the “smart quotes” are my favorite part).

You stumble upon something truly special.  This is the funniest thing I’ve found in a while.

and I’m backpedaling.

If you’ve decided to vote (& I hope you have) but you haven’t registered yet, point your browser to It is so painless and quick. I just registered in 3 minutes (1 minute of which was looking for an id number). Go do your part so you can say “It’s not my fault, I voted for the other guy.”
