So, if you can do math, you can see how things are progressing. If you can’t do math, they’re progressing slowly. Very slowly. Now I’m not expecting to be able to do 6-minute miles, but is an 11-minute mile too much to ask for?
Speaking of bad at math, my remote sensing class is mostly math at this point. I really should have learned how to do conversions in sophomore chemistry. That way, I could figure the dwell time on a cross-track scanner without taking off my shoes and calling NASA. And, I realize that a lot of you just read that sentence and are looking vainly for words that resemble the English language. But, that’s what my chosen career path calls for.
In my spare time Aside: Ha, spare time, that’s a good one! I have the chance to read and listen to music. So much so that I’m prepared to offer you a short list of songs you should/shouldn’t be listening to and to let you know I’ve finished my most recent book “Defining the Wind” by Scott Huler. Check out the books page for my current reading exploits.
GOOD MUSIC/BAD MUSIC
Here’s the list I recommend:
Wishful Thinking by The Ditty Bops
Mushaboom by Feist
Still Fighting It by Ben Folds
Paper Moon by The Frank and Joe Show
And, of course, the list you can safely pass over at the CD store:
- Gideon by My Morning Jacket
- Mama Soul by Harold Alexander
I think that’s about it for the moment. Still biking to work, even though the temp this morning registered at a face-numbing 30 degrees. That provided for a windchill of about 18 degrees as I rode downhill into the wind. And they said I was crazy. *laughing*
Currently listening to Fingers by Gabor Szabo from High Contrast via WERS
See you in the funny papers!
