Toss them fish sticks


I took this tweet as gospel today, but I went with Goldfish instead of fish sticks. (Also, kimihimo is a Japanese braiding technique. Did you all already know that?)

Ruby appeared in this outfit during a Skype call I had with a coaching client. From bottom to top, she’s wearing: my heels, a pair of jeans leggings, my Spanx slip, and a silk jacket my aunt gave me that I’ve never worn.  She took the jacket off after about 10 minutes and spent the rest of the morning hanging out in just my Spanx slip and the heels until she dropped a bagel, cream cheese side down, on the slip.

Here’s her roost about 4pm after I finally caved to her movie requests. There is a very comfy couch two feet from her. There’s also a comfy cat bed just out of the frame.

Asa mostly did this today:

I got to interview an old friend for a series about runners who are over the age of 45 and still running well. I record all the interviews, and then I play them at half speed to transcribe them. (Because I made the mistake of taking physics in high school instead of typing.) The interviewees all sounds drunk at half speed, which is kind of fun. I should be transcribing now, but I feel kind of defeated by today. How many non-alcoholic beers would I need to drink to ease the sharp edges off this day? Would I become hyponatremic before I became tipsy?

Running: 70 minutes easy to moderate

Here was one lovely thing to appreciate on the 2-mile neighborhood loop today. These folks live at the far end of the loop. I love their blue-bonneted yard.
