Well, I was hoping to ride at least 50 miles today, but I had to get some work done in the morning and by the time I had finished being lazy around the house, it was 4PM, so I had to settle for a slightly extended version of my daily 15-mile loop (10th -> jail trail -> greenfield -> beechwood -> fifth -> neville -> boundary -> jail trail -> 10th) ... this time taking a detour through Hazelwood and finding a more formidable hill to climb on the way out. The hills around here never cease to amaze (and exhaust) me; guess I'll just have to keep going up them until that's no longer true!

Having installed some voice-building machines and discovering the inherent suck-factor of all existing command-line audio recording tools, I just had to write yet another one, which I managed to do on the spot in about 30 minutes. Now if I could just get around to fixing POE::Component::Audio to do multiple channels and other trivial things, I'd feel better.

Stepping on the scale this morning I noted that, after giving myself an extra week of reduced eating to make sure that I was really actually under 150lbs, I was, well, really actually )well) under 150lbs, down from 180lbs three months ago and probably more before that... Hopefully being able to eat a bit more often will improve my demeanor and mental clarity... Now I just have to get some pants that fit.
