#941: SculptureCenter

I’ve run by the side street where the SculptureCenter is located at least 10 times over the past few years without having any idea it was there.

It might be because the area surrounding it is mostly comprised of construction sites.

#760: Green tea Kit Kat

If you can call a vanilla Frosty a Frosty, I guess you can call a green tea Kit Kat a Kit Kat.  But you shouldn’t.

Not because it doesn’t taste good, but because what we’re really saying when we condone rogue flavors of traditional desserts is that nothing is sacred. Read the rest of this entry »

#704: Run 500 miles

…not all at once.  That would be crazy.  (Of course there are some–including a-year-ago-me–who would say running even 5 miles sounds crazy.)

I’m mostly just posting about this milestone because ever since I reached 400 miles on my Nike app, I’ve been waiting for 500 so I could sing to myself, “And I would run 500 miles, and I would run 500 more.”  But The Proclaimers aside, it’s also pretty cool to think that in a year I’ve gone from thinking 5 miles was insane to insanely preparing for half marathons.

I’m proud of myself.  And if I were to have posted on Facebook about this accomplishment yesterday, I’m sure the post would have gotten at least 5 likes.  But the post from my friend (and, coincidentally, race buddy) proclaiming he was now in a relationship got over 100.  Also, tons of comments expressing congratulations.

Which made me think about what’s really important in life.

#629: A Mercantile Novel

In the past, I’ve thought that some contemporary art is just an excuse to showcase things that no one else understands (but can’t admit it or else they’ll seem unsophisticated).  I still think that.  But I will support it as long as it opens a space for exhibits like this one.

“This one” being Oscar Murrilo’s A Mercantile Novel, which is essentially a small-scale chocolate factory, churning out chocolate-covered marshmallows for the public.

#626: Put something in the mystery surprise drawer

A few weeks ago, the receptionist at work sent this email to the entire office:

Please do not leave thumb tacks in the mystery surprise drawer! If it was meant as a joke, it’s not funny.

It’s in the running for the funniest email I’ve ever received.
