First meal in Frankfurt… yeah sounds healthy for German eating, but my buddy Larry and I have this friendly wager on who will be in better shape in one month’s time for his wedding. It’s simple, our suits don’t fit.
And if anyone is curious, there’s no such thing as a friendly wager… I’m going all out.
So it’s getting close to that time of year when I start thinking about running long. If you’re a triathlete, the season will be winding down and you’re looking for that next challenge. Many in my club sign up for a distance at the Northface Endurance Challenge and while I’ve done that in…
I finally got a new phone two days ago, replacing my tired, old iPhone 3GS. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a beautiful phone, but there’s enough bells and whistles to equip ten trains. I’ve spent quite a few hours tinkering with it, learning the new settings, customizing it, downloading new apps. All for something that in two days I haven’t even made or received a call, and the only text was from my brother asking me why the phone upgrade was taking so long. Somebody please call me, my phone is feeling lonely.
This song has been playing in my head over and over… It’s the type of song that you can feel even without understanding the lyrics, but then when you do it’s that much more meaningful. My friend Naoki posted it on FB years ago and like he said, “You can understand what ‘setsunai（せつない)’ means by this song.”
