Hey, did anybody catch my street on the OC tonight? Line of the week (also the line most likely to tick off the Anti-Defamation League) belonged to Summer: "I can out Jew you."

Long time no see.

I spent yesterday volunteering my sailing skills to Access To Sailing. (If you don't feel like clicking the link, it's a non-profit that provides sailing opportunities to the disabled). For some reason, I get a strange vibe from them whenever there are no disabled persons around. For instance, their flagship ship is named "Zij Naplno" (Czech for "Live to the fullest") and the two directors have young Czech girlfriends. Were they dontated along with the boat? One of them seems to live the prime 60' Shoreline Village dock provided free by the City of Long Beach. Altruism is dead.

Still recovering from last month's marathon, I finally went to see my doctor today Re: a broken bone in my foot. My doctor dislikes me strongly, and made me sit through this story about the very first marathoner before providing any treatment:

The modern Athens Marathon commemorates the run of the soldier Pheidippides from a battlefield at the site of the town of Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C., bringing news of a Greek victory over the Persians. Legend has it that Pheidippides delivered the momentous message "Niki!" ("victory"), then collapsed and died, thereby setting a precedent for dramatic conclusions to the marathon.

As I figured, the x-rays were negative, although he thinks I have a small break that was not visible. No running for 6 weeks.

Well this whole Quizno's thing was certainly fun. My Blog went from 3 readers per day to over 100. I am a little surprised at how few people made it over to my webpage. How can anybody resist reading a page called Sure it's not very interesting...but I pay $8 a year for that name. Some traffic would be nice.

In recent news: I made an unsuccessful run for both President of the United States and California State Assembly (68th district) on the Libertarian ticket. I think if Nico had written me in for State Assembly, I would have won the nomination. Maybe if I campaign a little harder next time...
