June 10th, 2005



The weather's been brilliant for hiking in the mornings the last week or two, so I've been taking advantage. I dunno if this morning will be, though, since it was still raining here at midnight, and usually the monsoonal thing has worked itself out by then. Just as well... I bruised my foot a bit yesterday morning, so I should probably stay off it a couple days.

That said, I've gotten back in shape a lot quicker than I though I would. It only took me four more minutes to climb Green Mountain yesterday than it took me to get back down (for a 1.5 hour round trip), which means I didn't slow down much on the way up. I'm going to have to start doing more challenging hikes soon. Although I've kinda stayed away from the back side of the mountain (well, big hill) so far, with its knee-crushing steepness and all.

Rice Baseball

So, my alma mater is back in the super-regionals, trying to return to the College World Series in Omaha for the first time since they won the NCAA championship two years ago. (Interesting side note that I only learned recently: when they won the CWS that year, they were the smallest school to have won an NCAA national championship at that level in any sport in 51 years. That was also the first time in school history they'd won a national championship in any team sport, but I already knew that).

It seems unlikely they'll return, since starting Saturday, they'll be facing off against the team that's first in both college baseball rankings (Rice is ranked 7th and 14th). Either way, I won't be going this time, but I still have the ticket stubs from the championship series against Stanford in 2003.

Back To The Words

So, I suppose some of you want to know what the words were for.

Dunno how long I'll keep the experiment up. It's also hard to say if I'll actually do more than that, and, well, finish a few of the things I've talked with a few of you about. Eh, we'll see. But in the meantime, now you know.
