    I'd have a lot more sympathy if I didn't see "cyclists" riding in places like this. Eastbound 7th Street in Long Beach, in the morning, into the sun, with no lights, and with absolutely no room for a bike. There are literally 5 other routes one could take less than a 10th of a mile out of the way.

    Did you tell them that you're expecting to have an office of your own at the new place?

    At home, of course. Had to bring some stuff home today.

    Unfortunately, the new office is not conducive to commuting since I'd have to leave the bike in the basement bike corral.

    The relevant part:

    A Belgian tourist who reportedly hiked up a large French mountain in a pair of flip-flops this week sparked a rescue operation after spraining her ankle.

    Emergency services deployed to the French Alps by air yesterday in a rescue helicopter known as "Dragon 74," amid reports of a woman who needed assistance on the Dent du Chat—a mountain in the Savoie region which stands at roughly 4,560 ft above sea level.

    The woman, believed to be in her 40s, was accompanied by a friend when the helicopter made contact at approximately 4:30 p.m., according to French daily newspaper Le Dauphiné libéré. It emerged the tourist twisted her foot on a rock while attempting to descend the mountain.

    So, a "large" French mountain - in the Alps, no less - is at 4,560 feet elevation???? That's not even Santiago Peak-worthy.

    Best. Fish. Ever.

    Had a fire going on the beach (lake), hung over, fishing in the early afternoon at a spot in Utah. Hooked a 2 lb rainbow trout, landed it, gutted it, threw it on the fire. It wasn't dead 90 seconds before it was coooking. Can not beat that. Ever.
