    Garibaldi days! A friend of ours lives there, so we will spend the weekend drinking sans driving, eating, GnR cover band listening and having fun.

    And shark cages? Meh, you need a Faraday cage, or better, a Faraday suit, like this guy is wearing:

    Gaming Saturday evening, hanging out with P & N &c on Sunday evening, other than that a lot of resting and maybe some sleeping.

    I can’t wait till work is no longer the kind of chaotic that makes me sleep for 3 hours the minute I get home every night.Report

      I found a whole bunch of prices for shark cage *TOURS*.

      But what if I wanted to buy a shark cage itself?

      The shark cage people are seriously cutting themselves off at the knees by not having a larger web presence.Report

        I could see all *kinds* of liability issues if you just mail someone a shark cage and don’t provide any training.

        I’m imagining someone typing a review, thinking “okay, well, in school we learned that you should always be polite and find something good to say if you’re going to say something bad, so, here goes…”

        Cage was not difficult to transport. The part where you attach the hook was easy to access. I liked that there was a phone app I could use to check in where I planned to dive. The instructions did not indicate the proper method of securing the door and a shark was able to enter the cage. 3/5 stars.Report

    Look at you! Go, JB!!!

    Hopefully I will be having this baby this weekend. I’m so done being pregnant, even though I technically have 9 days left until the due date. I’m going to a Hillsboro Hops baseball game tonight with co-workers. That’s all I’m committing to, just in case… Keep your fingers crossed!Report

    I too have joined a gym and must repress my self-doubt at fellow gymgoers whose physiques are of superior quality to my own. I tell myself, I’m going to look like them one day. And the truth is, a great many of them do look like me right now anyway. Getting a workout buddy to go with me would be pretty useful motiviation, but one thing at a time.Report

      The milestone I most recently reached: exercising without friends but not cheating.

      We jog after work every day. I do the thing where I jog a half mile by alternating jogging and walking for a full mile. Well, the first time I was left to my own devices, I jogged somewhere between .25 of the mile and .3 of it.

      The second time, I was mostly pretty good, but I only ran all the way to the lightpost rather than all the way to the part of the fence that has the trees behind it.

      Thursday (this last Thursday!) was the *FIRST* time that, left to my own devices, I ran the full half a mile without cutting a corner here or there.

      I keep trying to remember that it’s better to have a process than a milestone.

      You reach a milestone and you feel good for a second but then it’s behind you and you’ve just got another milestone waaaay ahead of you. If you have a process, you can succeed every day and feel good that you’re following the process.

      I keep trying.

      Keep at it, Burt. We’ll get there.Report

    Even though it’s going to be DEATH HOT, a friend of mine (who lives about 5 hours away) and I are meeting up at a midway point, where there are good bookstores, and a yarn shop (we both knit) and other desirable things. And so I am going to get a much needed day away from my little town and especially away from reading about Environmental Law and worrying if I will know enough more about it than my students come August 21.Report
