I like to ride my bike.

Hiking Grey Rock

As “luck” would have it, I managed to commit one of the last perfect biking days of the fall (beautiful and sunny with temp around 70) to hiking with a couple friends. Oh well, hanging out with friends is good, and I needed to get in my token yearly hike anyway. The Sister [...]

Funny

I just saw Penelope Cruz do an impression of Salma Hayek. Hilarious.

I apparently have recently forgotten my position as the one-who-lets-things-go-and-generally-tries-to-maintain- cheeriness-and-non-bitterness.
