Not Quite Sunset Boulevard

You Are Skiing Graceful, athletic, and gusty – you’re willing to put it all on the line.You’re willing to take big risks for big rewards. What Winter Sport Are You? Apparently I am skiing. I feel more like I am curling.

Fugue Dreaming

Usually I sleep very well. Sometimes, though—like when I’m sick, or before a race—my brain seems to lapse into a loop cycle, and I wake repeatedly with the same information spinning through my brain. But it’s not important information, nor is it something that’s obviously troubling me. Last night, for example, it was the image… Read more »

Bears!

Wes and I were happy to see that Stephen Colbert is the subject of a story in Newsweek. Of course, we got this information from Colbert’s show, which we have watched religiously since it began airing in October. The single episode we have missed (friggin’ DVR!) was the one where he slammed the AP for… Read more »

And This One’s Self-Promotion

A shout-out to Dave Williams for valuing yoga! I’ll be talking on incorporating yoga in triathlon training–you know, the subject of my book-to-be!–as part of March Multisport Madness at the Wellness Center. You can sign up for the whole weekend or à la carte. Dave and his crew are great coaches–it’s going to be totally… Read more »

Procrastination Project

With two big projects fresh on my desk, I find renewed energy for anything but ECU’s institutional planning history. (The other ms., a book on white trash, sounds great–it’ll be my reward for finishing the ECU book.) So I looked into making a podcast using Apple’s Garage Band software, and I hope to get a… Read more »
