Time to catch up on the blog. This past week has been a frenzy for me. My friend Kenadi visited from LA, which was great. With that being said, this whole “not drinking” thing is much harder when you are frequenting restaurants and bars. At the rate things are moving right now, I’ll be looking at a volunteer year in the Peace Corps.

Otherwise, my quest for better fitness is moving right along. I’m not missing any workouts, consume in moderation and eat more green stuff than the average Vermont milk cow.

Tonight I saw the movie “Thank You for Smoking.” Not great, but definitely in interesting flick. What at times seems to be a ridiculous proposition actually turns out making sense in the end. Go see it if you find the time.

Last but not least, a word about Portland. I love it here. I really do. What I miss most about the other cities/states/countries I’ve lived are the people. But Portland is the right place for me and I am excited about my future here.

    You have inspired me – I joined a gym this week and so far things are going well – I’ll never be ready for a triathlon but I’m feeling better about myself. So keep up the good work!

    (And quit cheating! I’ve discovered almost every bar sells mineral water, just so you know…)

    Harlan, I love to hear that. Best of luck in your endeavors. You’ll do great if you just stick with it.

    And if not, maybe we’ll be volunteering side-by-side this summer.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
