Not so much; but please don't flatter yourself that we're only bores
when you're gone.

Most recently, there was a bit of a barroom brawl
(http://tinyurl.com/aaggx)which, much like last year's superior brawl
(http://tinyurl.com/a4nwf)germinated from comments about food -
sheesh, such an emotional topic here. The 2005 edition also featured
most prominently your buddy and ours, Nutty Global.

Mostly, the quantity of trolling's never been higher nor the quality
lower; and your buddy Pippy, or Wobbot, has been increasingly unstable
and prone to both seething rage and a surprising docility during which
he seems to aspire to respectability and productive contribution.

Yes. It's pretty much the same as usual. Oz still stops by from time to

are chiropractors doctors? i'm not trying to disparage them just wondering
if they're actually doctors.

anyone that wears nikes should be shot.

virginiaz spells it "klew", of course.


Roger, are you in fact at least a part-time puppeteer animating the
online persona known as virginiaz, Twittering, et al? Recently I've
been inclined to believe all her posts really do originate from a human
named Ms VH of NYC, but I've also entertained the notion that this
persona is operated by committee (aside from the obvious counterfeit
posts by your, uh, mentor).

Maybe (-; Well I suppose I troll wobbot sometimes anyway, when I'm really
bored.

> whatever. how's your running progressing?

I'm still having fun with it. I ran a 2:12 (800m), 4:48 (mile), and 9:49 (3k)
for indoor track, a 36:30 on the road. Outdoor track didn't go as well (9:56,
17:36). In the big scheme of things, I've been having a lot of fun with track,
and plan to run some cross country races in fall. I did some of these last
year and they were fun. Both the cross country and track races around here
draw a smaller, but dedicated crowd, and have less of the "parade" sort of
atmosphere that the marathons and many charity road races have about them.

No marathons this year. Marathons are overrated.

Donovan and the gang,

Was committed to writing a chapter in a book on the use of Storytelling
in leadership development. Realized a week ago that the effort was
taking me away from focusing on my livelihood so gratefully turned over
my initial work and contacts to the editor who will probably be doing
the chapter herself.

Ran at the Marathon Clinic this morning for an easy 5 and watched as
the Mission Bay park began to fill with the 4th of July crowd. They
expect a million plus at the beaches over these two days.

Did some coaching yesterday on running form and style. So should have a
little more time to visit more often.

Have a great 4th.

Thanks. It hurt quite a bit, but I did the race after the mile, so I
was prepared for pain. That mile really hurt, I saw that I had a shot
at sub 4:50 at the 3/4 mark, so I just went for it from 300m out.
Could barely stand up after the race. Anyway, they took some shots
during the 800m:

Slowly getting there. Recent shot:

I was about 165 when those weightlifting shots were taken. I'm
weighing in at 154-158 these days. Would like to drop a few more
pounds -- get consistently <70kg.

Even so, if you should decide to make up a story - a story containing
some odd details and oddly lacking some others; a story with at least a
touch of flamboyancy, and way-over-the-top is fine too - about your
absence and/or return, I for one will savor it.

Whoever or whatever else you are, Roger, you're a first-rate
