• I originally learned about Nude Foods in this video about shopping plastic free. I wish we had one here in Yokohama. So. Much. Plastic.
  • Made some overnight white bread. It’s singing to me right out of the oven. πŸ˜‹πŸ₯–
  • Not that I’ll be posting after each run, but I Β did an easy 30 minutes this morning. Fuji looked fabulous in the pink morning sky. πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ
  • It's been a month since I've done any "proper" rides and even longer since I've run.Β  But I like the idea of becoming one of those people that runs everyday rain or shine. I think the "secret" isn't motivation, because motivation comes and goes, but rather building a routine. Running x times per week means you can adjust to a different day and then miss it. Daily might be a better way to build the habit.
  • Having a night / morning without kids in the house really allows you the space to do that thinking you've been meaning to do but just can't. (Thinking about my next rotation around the sun and what I want to do / who I want to become).
  • So happy that Japan is finally opening its borders, full visa waiver travel is back from Oct. 11th. Come take advantage of the Β₯142/dollar exchange rate!
  • Decided to just run with the new homepage. So it is displaying images in statuses, but that's only as I'm not explicitly filtering them out. My site temporarily looks like an infinity mirror.
  • A couple days late, but Hackers was released 27 years ago. It's my favorite movie, for both nostalgia and soundtrack. But the thread on HN made me realize another reason, Hackers shows how it feels to code, not just what it looks like (which is boring, just a person looking at a terminal).

    Hack the planet!
  • One of the things I think about a lot lately is the amount of animal products I consume. Not just meat, but milk, yogurt, and cheese as well. And I've been working on reducing it when I can.

    Doing so makes me feel better mentally. Not just from the "no animals were harmed in the making of this lunch" perspective, but that there's just less to think about. Did I cook the meat enough? Have I accidentally cross-contaminated my meat and veg? And so forth.

    When visiting Waterstones in the UK, there was a book that caught my eye and I read a bit, but ultimately didn't buy called This is Vegan Propaganda. As I finished the climate change book, I decided to buy it as I kept thinking about it. Thus far it's been a good read.

    The only downside is it's made me a bit uncomfortable when I ride by the chicken farm not too far from my house. I find myself questioning the well being of the chickens, while before I just thought about fresh eggs.

    While I don't intend to become vegan (neigh impossible in Japan, unless you cook all of your own meals), I am curious.
