woot!  
I hit 199.8 this morning!

I probably won't make much progress tomorrow though since shelleycat forgot her leftovers from Vince's here and i ought to have them for dinner tonight before they go bad :) On the other hand i did go rollerblading 11 miles this afternoon. Unfortunately even though it was warm and sunny in when i left work at 4:10, by the time i got to the beach at 5:10 the sun was behind some incoming clouds and it was pretty cool =/

Speaking of both rollerblading and food, on my way back from the beach while cutting through the parking lot of the strip mall on the corner i noticed that the food options have changed a fair bit. The cheap japanese place closed quite awhile ago (not a terrible loss) but along with the Subway and Pasta Kitchen there's now also a Corner Bakery and a "Garlic Jim's Gourmet Pizza." I should go check those out at some point.

On the downside, i seem to have missed Bill Clinton's speech while i was out =P I thought it was going to be later in the day, like Hillary Clinton's speech yesterday.

Congratulations-- I didn't know anyone could go that fast on rollerblades...oh..weight! you mean: wait (stop! pause. reverse that). I'm not sure Garlic Jim's Gourmet Pizza is not going to help you decrease your speed.

Yeah, it's certainly spam going by a technical definition, but it's also the classiest bit of spam i've ever seen. I can't really think of a good basis to complain about them "reading" a public post where i talk about them and then responding to it, especially since they leave clear contact information.
