Another lazy Sunday

Yep, its another of those days. Booger and I are lounging on the couch, watching Sesame Street and goofing off with his shape-sorter ball. I'm trying to get caught up on my blog comments, however my internet has been very spotty. I have crummy wireless broadband (my only option for internet), which is terrible even in town, but is nearly unusable out in the jungle. I bought a $200 antenna (with $70 of super-fat low-loss cable) to boost my signal, but its still only 3 out of 5 bars, on a good day. And today is apparently not a good day.

I blame today's laziness on my effort to go bike riding more often. I usually go for a few miles every other day, but on Friday something possessed me to go from my house to the highway. Its five miles each way, and none of them are close to being flat. We have some mean hills in my subdivision, which make my slow pace even slower. Nothing beats going down a big hill full speed, wind in your face and making that awesome whooshing sound in your ears. Instant trip back to being a kid for me. I'd like to get to a physical level where I can make the trip to the highway in less than thirty minutes, and not completely winded and covered in sweat, by the beginning of the fall semester. My trip took me around 45 minutes-1 hour. If I can just ride my bike to the bus stop, I won't have to get a ride there and home every day, and I'll have my bike for transportation in town. However, it rains pretty much every day here, and no amount of training will make me like riding in the rain.

Just a reminder, my little Childhood Nostalgia contest ends a little over a week from now on July 5th!


No_Its blog is an art blog of a talented guy that sketches some really interesting subjects. He's in a little bit of a slump for ideas, so give him some! My suggestion of a zombie clown riding a zombie dinosaur turned out pretty awesome.

I love video games from the 80's & 90's, and Jon over at Jon's Lost Corner covers a variety of them, with a smidge of new games as well.

Speaking of Sesame Street - I'm working on a multiple-post dedication to Jim Henson and his many fantastic creations, which I hope to start posting sometime this week. His work has touched several generations of Americans, and the Jim Henson Company continues to produce new films and shows. I hope you all will enjoy it!

    I would have childhood nostalgia but most of it comes from video games and emulators and my awesome usb controllers fix that.
