christmas 2008


Fourth week about to end here at lovely Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. If I were chaperoning band camp this year, this would be my last day. However, given the nature of this job (and the fact that I have full freedom of movement), I'll be here another two weeks.

Tomorrow is payday!! It's made even better when you don't have to work. All right, that was kind of random.

I'm thinking about at least 50 km tomorrow on the bike. I didn't ride last weekend because of the oppressive humidity, but once the drier air rolled in on Tuesday, I got out and did 22.5 km. And I didn't even feel that tired afterwards. Still not set on a course yet, but I'll get that worked out soon.

I must say I was impressed by the performance of Jeremy Shockey on Monday night. I know it's only a preseason game, but the guy has got some toughness. Hopefully all the offseason infighting is behind them, so that we Giants fans won't have to suffer through another 7-9 season. This will be tough, considering that both the Eagles and Redskins are in the Giants' division, but I think a playoff spot is not out of the question (even though there are now only two wild cards in each conference).
