Biking

Today is Shannon's birthday, and he wanted to go to dinner at Chevy's down in Emeryville, right on the Bay. He asked me if I'd be okay with the bike ride there and back, and I determinedly said I would.

So today I biked about 9 miles down to the Bay and back (with the "back" part being mostly uphill), and I am tremendously proud of myself.

After a couple months of injuries and about 4 months of off-and-on bronchitis that kept me pretty much confined to walking as my only mode of exercise, I've been feeling extremely out of shape and pretty rotten about it. But today I did a somewhat hilly 9-mile bike ride, and I did not collapse, vomit, or require professional medical assistance. I consider it a triumph!

Hurray for me!

*sustained applause*

If it's Shannon's birthday, can yours be far behind?

Are you obliquely referencing Shelley? If so, you are a nerd for doing it, and I am a nerd for recognizing it. I'm happy with that.

My birthday is Thursday, but it is, sadly, not an exciting number: 43. A friend pointed out that the digits at least add up to 7, which many consider a lucky number, but I have yet to come up with any other way in which 43 is particularly interesting. I much prefer the culturally or mathematically interesting ages.

Perhaps I will simply have to make the age 43 interesting in and of itself.

Yes, I was obliquely referencing Shelley, though all I remembered when I typed it was that it was poetic.

43 is prime! Primes are always interesting!

Prime! Yes, that definitely satisfies my "interesting number" criterion. Thank you for reminding me!
