Life’s little idiosyncrasies

Life can be funny sometimes. Filled with ups and downs. And it’s trivially easy to let one negative thing obscure everything else. It’s not constructive, it’s a huge time sink, but we all do it from time to time. And why is that? I guess one part of project Brave New Jon should be to figure this out, to do so many of the things that I really really don’t want to do. It’s good for me, like eating brussels sprouts, which also doesn’t mean it’s necessarily the easiest or most fun thing to do :-)

Today, I joined a gym. I’m going to try Boston Sports Clubs and see how that goes – I’ve got a limited time membership, which I will turn into a longer term deal, if I’m happy with how it goes over the next few weeks. Maybe I’ll be over there at 5:30am in the morning, depending upon how late the debugging goes tonight and how much wonderful firmware hacking I do or do not get done. In any case, I’ve got to train more – I want to run a marathon and go hiking over the coming weeks and months, which necessitates working out like crazy.

I’m hoping to go flying again on Saturday. My colleague (Larry – if there’s a VM tunable to be had, he’ll have it) is likely going up, and I’m happy to tag along. I never realized just how much I’d enjoy it last time – flying has got to be one of the coolest things you can do on an afternoon. There’s such freedom there to go anywhere (well, anywhere the fuel, FAA, and…NTSB will let you go).

    As far as I know, NTSB does not have a regulatory authority.
