"IF YOU HAVE FIVE SECONDS TO SPARE"

Random things:

1. You know, a few posts ago, Kapgar asked me, mostly jokingly, to clarify a bit when I said my Dad was on "the other side of the world". Turns out, he is, though not at an exact opposite location to Chicago. In discovering this, I found this website which is fun to play with. You set your location, then find out where you'd pop up if you were to dig a hole through the earth. I'd, uh, pop up just to the side of Australia if I dig from Chicago.

2. Paris Hilton might have to go back to jail. I am embarrassingly happy about this.

3. I still need one local author for the June 28th Fixx Reading Series night. I am taking nominations and suggestions. Aaaaaand, go.

4. I had a great long run and workout yesterday. I'm still running under my marathon pace, but I'm pacing okay considering I didn't really run all winter.

Well Amy, thanks for a new application that I will spend the rest of my life playing with. I've already tried everywhere I've ever lived, and now I'm just digging holes everywhere.

For the record, directly across from the upper west side is some ocean. Lame.

Megan Stielstra. If you don't know her, you should!

I'm sure you pursued this already, but how about any of the Solloway ladies?

Whoa, Dubi, that's a way better site. Cool! Thanks!

Don't be embarrassed. I take pride in my enjoyment of the mess that Paris is in. Heh heh.
