    Got another target for the range and tuned my bow this evening.
    Ordered some light limbs too but they won't be in until the first week of November.

    I have a job interview tomorrow morning. I've been applying to jobs online, and some of them don't actually tell the business name. So I have no idea which job this is out of the many I've sent resumes to. But it's in a fairly convenient location and from what I understand it may not be half bad. Guess I'll find out tomorrow.

    Just had my big 140-400mm camera lens checked out by the techs. Been getting annoying Error-99 notices pretty regularly.

    Bad news - dead aperture mechanism.

    Good news - easily replaced. Two weeks and HK$800 (about US$100).

    Should get it back just in time for the local rowing champs (where a big lens is kinda handy to take photos of boats waaaay out on the course).

    Got a new string ordered for the bow you gave/sold to me. Picking it up at lunch time. Going to get some 1816's or 1916's for it and put in an hour at the indoor range today. Probably do a walk back with it to get the sight close and the tune decent.
    See you in a couple weeks.

    Now....currently, doing the usual...sipping coffee and writing/running SQLs. Need to eat some breakfast, but I'm just not hungry.

    Just back from running some errands. Getting ready to train shortly.

    Can someone explain what is wrong with the sidewalk for runners? Is it some perceived convenience issue or is running so important they deserve to impede traffic on a four lane road while they shuffle along at 6mph?

    They need attention... and they couldn't possibly risk having to step on grass for a few strides in order to avoid somebody.

    As for me, I'm tearing out half the interior of my car to replace some fiber optic stuff (1984 fiber optics so very simple,) various bulbs, do a deep clean, and to fit pool noodles into one of the seats which is sagging a bit. Hopefully I can find a pool noodle locally in this odd season.

    I've seen runners using the street when there was a perfectly good sidewalk right along side, but my first thought was that it must suck running on a sloping surface like the street (where it slopes downward to the gutter) instead of a more level sidewalk. Just walking on an uneven surface like that hurts my calves a lot. Seems like it would be horrible for running. But like cycling on the sidewalk, I assume there's some reason they avoid it that's not obvious to me.

    Not obvious to me either, so I'm going with "purely to piss me off."

    Set a block of wood behind my target. Tunneled an arrow under the target and broke the tip off in the wood block. I now have a nice fire in the living room fireplace.

    there is a reason and it is very obvious: running is stupid.

    It would be especially stupid for me considering my knees would disintegrate.

    I'm up at 2am because our four week old son won't go back to sleep. My poor wife spent the last hour trying to get him to sleep after she was up all last night with him. She's getting some needed sleep while my son and I are awake.

    So tired and bored. I haven't been sleeping well at all lately for some reason. Maybe the changing of the seasons or something?

    I'm hoping a buddy that actually knows what he's doing will come help me change my upper control arm on the car tonight or tomorrow. It's 3 days until I get my drivers license back after nearly 8 long months... it would suck ridiculously hard to get her back on the road and have the wheel fly off on the highway or something.

    Asphalt is a softer surface than cement. If you're doing a long run, it's easier on your knees and feet. Most joggers doing a couple of miles probably wouldn't notice any difference, but they run in the street anyway.

    As soon as we got east of San Marcos, the rain stopped and it was perfect riding weather.

    I wondered if this might be the reason (or one of the reasons). I guess the uneven surface doesn't bother some people as much as it does me.
