Tackling Pynchon

Rob and I have decided to read Gravity's Rainbow together. We bought two copies, and are slowly making our way through it. What a mind bender!

I'm considering getting the companion by Weisenberger.

There's a pretty good web companion for the book online as well.

Crossfit update

CrossFit Santa Cruz: Get Some...Go Again

My Crossfit saga is going well so far. This picture is of one of my classes (I'm the one at the end, but you can just barely make me out.)

Some of my progress includes the following:

I climbed a rope for the first time ever last week.

I can do 7-8 push-ups from my toes.(And 20-30 from my knees)

I can do 50 sit-ups. (full-range, not "crunches")

I can recover in about two days after my legs are so sore I feel like I'll never walk again.
