I really am going to kill something. I fail it. Either that or I had too much caffeine.

My internet died yesterday. Looked at the modem: nothing. It just stopped. No lights, no nothing. Checked with the multimeter to make sure that the power adapter didn't fail, that would've been so much better, but that wasn't it. It only lasted 6 months. The last one only lasted 6 months. Whatte the swyve. Hope it's still under warranty. It's a different type of failure to the last one, so I don't think the problem is on my end.

Interview tomorrow. Slightly pissed about lack of internet access, since I needed to get my itinerary printed out. Going to a ball game when I get back.

And: how could I have been so dumb?

I had a good run this morning, things just clicked. I'm putting a goal out there of being able to do a 6 minute mile. I might be able to do a 7 minute mile right now, or at least 7 and some change. I suppose I should measure that. There's a spot where I know it's .98 miles from point A to point B. I was never a runner.

Well, at least I'm losing weight.

I once managed to run a seven minute mile.

The day before yesterday, I watched a 38-year-old woman run a 5:26 mile.  It was her 26th of the day.
