I figured that, now that I'm back home, I'd take maybe .5-1hr per day to learn a little python because it's handy. Today's task: install the stuff I need to go through the Jake VanderPlas book on python for data science. I think I've successfully done so. I won't verify until tomorrow, though, when I actually give it a whirl: I've gone through my allotment of time!

So I was going for a quick (slow) run this morning and a couple blocks from home I saw a decently sized dog, like a golden retriever except white, walking around a lawn without a leash, so I was like, okay, he's got one of those invisible fence things

My fridge kind of broke over the weekend. The freezer is still at fridge temperature, the fridge is a little warmer, and I've been leveraging the fact that it's extremely cold outside to take care of the frozen goods. I also pressed a mini-fridge that was unused into service.

Listening to the latest This American Life: wow, this is awful. "The Perils of Intimacy". Just that first story.

Print Story argh so close
i tied the course record for this one steep hill on Strava after a while of trying. it's a pretty short one, like, 42ft of elevation gain in less than a block and the record is like 17s. the other day I went up in like 19 and realized I had a shot if I got a running start. the thing is, because it's so short, it's not immediately clear what the beginning or end of the segment is, and this also means the granularity of the record keeping is not so good. it's also kind of directly perpendicular to a main road so you can't get much of a straight running start unless there's no traffic. anyway, drat, I only tied it rather than getting king of the mountain here.
