Infomercials and rain barrels

I'm watching the P90X infomercial. I shouldn't torture myself like this. Did I learn nothing from the Body By Jake Ab Rocker?

We had houseguests over the past week, which while most pleasant, meant I ate a bit more than my points allowed and did not go to the gym. Maybe we'll just pretend for the purposes of the food log that last week never happened.

Next weekend is the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) and another round of visitors -- I'll just have to see if I learned anything and plan ahead. Shortly after that I hop on a plane for a business trip. So there are some challenges coming up...

On the house front, we are now the proud owners of a fully functioning rain barrel, thanks to the houseguests. Yesterday I watered my plants with water from the barrel and it was just as exciting as I knew it would be.

Between the rain barrel, my window herb garden (ignore that I killed everything but the oregano and parsley), and my kitchen compost pail my transition to Seattle hippy stands at 2 of 6 bars.

PAX is pretty cool. Jer and I have gone the last few years. It is crowded and you often have to wait in long lines, but overall it's worth the price of admission. I've been to four great panels, one not so good panel, seen a neat Portal 2 demo and gotten some free t-shirts. It's a win.
