Damn it!

I spent 35 minutes in the shower this morning because i got distracted in the middle thinking about strategies for Galactic Civilizations =P And i got a little over 11 hours of sleep last night, so i can't even blame it on being tired.


Since i was reminded about it at lunch (and some people apparently hadn't heard about it yet) i thought i'd make a note here that Don LaFontaine died last week =/ It seems even more sad to me because i only found out who he was (rather than as an anonymous voice at the movies) sometime in the last year. This seems like a good time to post a link to "5 Guys in a Limo" though. If you haven't seen it before it's a very amusing clip from some award show or something featuring LaFontaine and four other movie trailer voice actors spoofing themselves.

I thing i forgot to mention it at the time, but on my way back from my 30 mile adventure however many weeks ago it was, i went by the Coffee Cartel at about 1 am. They were already closed, but the staff was still around cleaning up, and they had the ending(?) theme for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya playing fairly loudly on the speakers, and when that ended it switched to a Chrono Trigger song :)

And speaking of music, i've got new rollerblading music :) Jumpin' Jimes' "Swing Shift," Nightwish's "The Last of the Wilds," Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend," Bowling for Soup's "High School Never Ends," Jimmy Eat World's "A Praise Chorus" and of course Covenant's "Ritual Noise" are all awesome. Anna Tsuchiya's (?) "Ah Ah," Helena Paparizou's "Mambo" and Space Raider's "Song for Dot" are pretty good. Emerald Rose's "Johnnie Cope" and the SSX main theme are just okay.

So anyways, go to the beach about 5:15 or 5:20, finished up about 7, by which point the sun was setting. (Why is it that the experience of rollerblading in a cool dim skating rink is so much better than rollerblading at the beach when it's cool and cloudy? =P) If i'm not going to get horribly out of shape over the winter again i may need to pick one day of the week to head home very early and get some blading in while it's still sunny.
