How can it be not what it is, when being is in itself?

Gibberish? Exactly. Spock’s Beard, to be precise

Interview today went…actually, I have no idea. Decent enough, I suppose. Guess I’ll find out next week, see if I made the first cut and get to go back to see the lab boss. Spent a couple of hours on the Michigan campus thereafter, taking a peek around the Diag. I’m a local product, so it’s not as if I’ve been completely away the 15 years since I’ve graduated. But I did live in Wisconsin the last 9 years, so there definitely are some major changes that I hadn’t noticed before.

Hit the gym later in the day for two hours of pickleball. Gotta work on the consistency, I can have 5 good points in a row and follow that up with 5 bad shots in a row. Today’s wog was run 8:4 walk, up to 5 consecutive laps, 5/12ths of a mile. Next stop half mile, though I’m not planning on it the next time I go. Unless I feel like it. Time today was 12:10, which I would assume was a typo, except I’m reading it off my phone’s stopwatch app, and as far as I know, it doesn’t do typos. And that was after the pickleball, so… it suggests that if ever I develop a mile’s worth of stamina, I can probably run it in 10 something, maybe even challenge single digits. I am aching something fierce right now, not sure if that’s from the court action, or from stretching out and going a little faster the last couple of laps.

Curious to see what the weigh in is tomorrow. Having tracked everything since Friday, it seems like I’m eating on or under the calorie goals stated by the SP tracker. I double checked it against a couple of different sites, and apparently, its numbers are correct for my age/height/weight loss goals. Still an open question as to the accuracy of my tracking. I’ve done a decent amount of fitness minutes, but I had a huge corned beef deli sandwich from a fave old place on campus this afternoon. Curious if that will all cancel out.

And, just because I started with a song with a bit of counterpoint vocals in it, how about I end the same way? “Chance” by Savatage, the counterpoint section starts around the 7 minute mark.

This vid takes me way back to 1998, seeing these guys doing this song live, with the awesome sight of 5 guy across the front of the stage, each singing their separate parts. I have goosebumps right now.

    I agree with Ken. Watch the sodium. Good luck on the Job!

    That corned beef deli sandwich may throw off your weigh in due to sodium content trapping water in your system for a day or so. I've had that happen to me, know that I'm due for a good weigh in and then eat a meal that has more sodium than I would have preferred. Weigh in sucked, but the next day the weight was done a decent amount. Go figure, our bodies are fickle!
