Missing DragonCon

So just because i'm a masochist i went and looked through the list of guests for DragonCon this year that i was missing out on. Particularly focusing on the performers because that's definitely one of the best parts.

Okay, i was definitely figuring good odds that Abney Park and Emerald Rose and Tom Smith and Voltaire would be there. However i was _not_ expecting a Brobdingnagian Bards reunion!!! I discovered them at my very first DragonCon and ended up buying most of their CDs, but then they split before i ever got to see them again. I'm feeling even more sad about having missed it now =/

Aside from that however, i had a pretty good labor day weekend. Avalyn and i went to her sister's birthday party on saturday, and a "labor day" BBQ on sunday and then went to a special Labor Day Ruin/Malediction/couple-other-clubs mash-up with her sister, and had a nice brunch and did pub trivia on monday. (I discovered that there is now an Original Pancake House just 5 miles from my place. Unfortunately when we stopped by it had a 20-30 minute wait, so we just went to Mimi's Cafe instead.) At this point i think we're both looking forward to a relatively peaceful do-nothing weekend this week though =P

Yay Zombies 5k!

I finally got Zombies 5k working!

It turns out my phone has a weird bug. Actually, i'm not sure if it's my phone, all Nexus Ones, all phones with this version of Android, all phones with this GPS chip or what. But in any case, every so often my phone apparently gets in a weird state where it can get an initial GPS fix, but can't do constant tracking. So once this bug kicked in all the apps that use GPS would seem to start up okay, but then fail shortly thereafter.

Luckily when the CardioTrainer app lost the GPS connection it suggested i should try rebooting my phone, which fixed it!

So i've finally gotten a real Zombies 5k run in!

In not so good news, after doing 4 runs in two weeks i'm definitely starting to get at least one blister. There's a white oval patch underneath one of the calluses on my right foot =P
