I have become obsessed with two new things: iMapMyRun and Google Maps. See how I added photos to the map above (click on the little blue flag icon things)? How cool is that? I know Google isn’t probably as benevolent as they’d like us to believe, but I can’t help but love them sometimes.
In the good news department, I finally found a Como-based run that is at least 3.2 miles for tomorrow’s 5K. In the bad news department, it’s almost certainly going to rain tomorrow (and I’m not just talking some little drizzle; Belinda Jensen says we might very well hear sirens going off all over the place), so I won’t be able to do it. My plan B is to do a very exciting 3.2 mile elliptical training in my basement.
I don’t know if people are posting less interesting things, or if I’m just not inclined to re-post as many things as I was earlier now that I’ve come up with my own ideas to write about, but I’ve collected a few from this week to share (and most of them have nothing to do with legal research!):
- Law Librarian Blog, $5K Up for Grabs: Xtranormal Launches First Film Contest. I actually have some ideas for some Xtranormal videos. They’d probably get me in trouble, though …
- Tom & Lorenzo, Dressed to Kilt Charity Fashion Show. TLo is (are?) hilarious. “BusinessKilt” and “Theodore Roosekilt!” kill me every time.
- Monarch Watch.org, Travelog: Monarchs in Mexico. I wish they had included more photos. It sounds so beautiful!
- Just Jared (a Hollywood gossip blog), Dave Franco to play “21 Jump Street” Villain. Um, why are they making a movie from the (bad) old TV series? And why would Johnny Depp really want to have anything to do with it?
The walks there and back (1.05 miles, according to iMapMyRun) were made somewhat more interesting by the (relatively) recent addition of poetry to the sidewalk.
Happy weekend to y’all!
