Counting the days

KM and I would periodically have a certain conversation in the mornings while out rowing during periods in our lives where we were on the busy side of things. In essence, it was about doing that mental calculation until the next time it would be possible to get a full night's sleep.

I haven't had to operate in that mode to a tremendous degree in the last couple of years, but I'm in it now.

Today: another hectic work day. I suspect all of the water in our labs will continue to be shut off for another 2-3 weeks. I wish they hadn't lied to us about temporarily plumbing in water to one faucet per lab.

As soon as I wrap up work, I'll head home, load stuff onto Froinlavin, bike over to the airport, pack Froinlavin in the rental car, and drive straight down to Falls City. Brevet start time is 4 am tomorrow. I didn't have good cell phone service during the 400k, which followed some of the same route, so I suspect I won't be updating from the road. I'll try to remember to post something on Sunday night.

I'll be back at work on Monday, although I've warned my boss that I won't be highly functional.

I barely made it in time to a bike camping clinic last night, at the shop where I'll be giving the introduction to randonneuring. It's a really good thing I went, for two reasons: (1) I got to meet more of the women cyclists in the area who are looking for people to ride with, and (2) it made me realize that I should *not* put together a slide presentation for the randonneuring intro. I'll bring an outline of subjects to talk about, and will lead in with a round of introductions, so I can find out what people know, why they're interested, and what specific things they're curious about. Then we'll go from there, and I'll give everyone a set of links to further resources as well.

It looks like we have twice the numbers for the 600k as for the 400k, which is to say, there will be four of us.

It took me a moment to figure out that you were discussing talking to other people on the boat whilst rowing. Somehow I had this initial image of you with, I dunno, a headset or a phone clamped between your ear and shoulder, talking to someone on a whole different lake. Sheesh.

Haha, I wrote this in haste, so misreading is allowed and hilarious.
