It must be noted that while I was obsessing over your list, I was really obsessing over this entry, because I think it works in an eerily horoscope-like fashion to explain my summer, half of which was devoted to mad revising, and the other half to mad running. And it's not even that I *want* to be better at one when focusing on the other, which is to say that even my self-talk is in line with these studies. Weird.

Let's see...Americans work an average of 60 hours a week, take less vacation than their Asian and European counterparts, take work home most nights, and then we work on self improvement. Which in Minnesota means curling up in front of the fire with a 20 year old sipping Scotch and a book (in January). The summer version is sweating it out on the patio with a Corona and Lime while identifying the birds at your feeder. Now that's self improvement!

Unfortunately, the only self improvement really available to me is finding faster routes to various hockey arenas around the Twin Citiies.

This week in local eating

  • 6.4.10: From our garden, we're eating chard, greens, radishes, strawberries, and heaps of herbs. At the farmer's market we're buying the usual: eggs and lots of goat cheese.
