I dug out my old pedometer today to start using it again, but the batteries were dead. So I bought new batteries and had to sit down and reprogram the thing. I followed the instructions, but I think I'm misunderstanding something (despite the helpful diagrams), because Shannon and I walked quickly to Taco Bell tonight and it took us half an hour ... and my pedometer said it was .79 miles. I don't think so. But I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Frustrating. I guess I'll walk somewhere where I know how far it is (like the Y, which is a mile) and see what the pedometer says.

I've started reading The Time Traveler's Wife, and I'm enjoying it thus far. I worried, based on the blurb, that it might be too romance novelly, but it isn't (yet). Of course, I'm only 100 pages in, so things could still go to hell.

New Battlestar Galactica tonight!

Some pedometers have a function ("Stride" or something like that), that you have to put it in, then walk a mile, then press the button again. At least my old one was like that. Because everyone's stride length is different, depending on how long your legs are, it doesn't know how many steps it takes you to walk a mile unless you tell it.

At least that was my understanding of my old one. Once it knew how many steps it took you to walk a mile, then it could count everything from then on.

My pedometer requires you to measure the length of your stride in inches.

I enjoyed The Time-Traveler's Wife immensely. In my opinion, it isn't romance-novelly or soppy at all, but it is moving and even romantic in some parts. But it's probably the best book I read last year.

I'm glad to hear it. Thus far, it hasn't set off any of my alarm bells, and I had heard good things about it (from I don't remember who, but I don't think it was you), so I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt. I'm prepared to like it.

Yeah, not too romance-novelly at all. Perhaps not my favorite that I read last year, but I did really enjoy it.
