1. I have had my hypothesis confirmed: it feels worse for me as a fan to lose a Super Bowl than it does to win a Stanley Cup. In 2003, when Adam Vinatieri ruined my best chance at happiness, I was gloomy for a full three days. My hockey interest is much lower, but I got only three hours of pleasure, tops, from the Canes’ victory. I believe when the Panthers win it all, I will not be glad for as long as I was upset after their loss.
2. Lily got scooped up by a hunky lifeguard at the pool today. He had great instincts: she was doing her vertical doggie paddle (and I sat watching, thinking, “Boy, her doggie paddle is vertical!”) but tired and started to panic. He said, “I could see it in her expression.” She was embarrassed; I was very pleased at his quick reaction.
3. There’s an updated picture at my home page, which I put as full background. It’s fanny-forward, but I liked the green grass, so I kept as is. For all my efforts, I can’t get the lower two links darker. I welcome feedback on its appearance.
4. Our buddies are moving to Vermont for culinary school and selling their awesome house in Durham. It’s on a luxe park, half a block from the American Tobacco Trail (great running, riding, and an easy walk to good beer on tap). Here is their listing:
