There's also a Fresh Market up that way (where the credit union branch was supposed to be), and I'd bet a patchoulli-reeking hippie they carry quinoa, so I'll have to check that out next time I'm up that way. A client approached me about implementing a CAPTCHA system on their web contact form. So there's another trick I'll be adding to my toolbox. Google Code has some resources, including reCAPTCHA, although reCAPTCHA is sometimes too difficult for actual humans so I'm not so sure I'll go that directio... (...more)

1. The branch of my credit union that used to be caddy-corner across the intersection is now a different credit union branch. Boo. 2. The Pubilx by me doesn't carry quinoa. I asked a pack of stock clerks in the rice and beans aisle and none of them had even heard of it. Maybe at the big fancy Pubilx at the corner of Glades; they have a much bigger Greenwise section. (This shouldn't surprise me too much, since in the 3 months I've been shopping there, they also only once had the sausage variety of Jose O... (...more)

session 97 (per twitter): 3.0mi at 6.1mph --> 29m14s. There's your 30-minute 5K, and Marine-class cardio fitness in one swoop. OORAH weigh-out: 187#. I got lazy about keeping up my fitness log spreadsheet, so I got that current just now. (While I think of it, it'd be handy to start logging weighs, wouldn't it?) Some stats of interest: I averaged a "gym day" per 2.92 days, probably more like 2.3-2.5 if you lop off my slow start in Jun-Jul 2011 and the 2-week Xmas break. Of these 97 recorded fitness sess...

first real cooking at cascade posted: Fri 2012-04-06 19:13:07 tags: what I'm eating
Brown rice and chickpeas for my first non-take-out, non-microwaved hot meal at Casa Cascade. Figure I moved in here Jan 12, so it's been a week short of 3 months that I haven't had a hot meal at home that wasn't microwave burritos, lean pockets, Subway, or lately, Pizza Hutt. Oh, and once I had an overpriced stromboli from the indie pizza place across the highway. For my next trick, I'll transition from chickpeas to pinto beans, and start adding in some frozen spinach and broccoli.

After a large-ish sushi lunch which I didn't really finish til around 2PM, my client closed up for the Easter/Passover weekend early at 3PM. So in light of where I was, digestively speaking, when I got on the 'mill at 3:30ish, 3.3mi in 38m10s isn't bad at all. First mile at 6.3mph, a bit over 2.5 laps cooldown, and the rest (i.e., ~1.75mi) at 6.1mph.
