Summertime Blues

First, you guys! I wrote a little essay for a workplace newsletter, and Cincinnati.com picked it up!

I wrote about how dumb/rewarding it is to go running and how I wore stupid clothes when I did it.

Read it, if you wish.

And now, for some (slightly) less stupid clothes:

It finally feels like summer here.

And in most restaurants, stores, and grocery establishments, it feels like a winter night in Antarctica. Instead of decommissioning every air conditioner I come across, I've opted to collect a stable of awesome summer jackets, like this little Wrangler number.

Thanks, lady! High praise indeed from such a fashionable wordsmith!

Congrats on that post! You succeeded in making interesting a subject I normally wouldn't give a flying four-letter word about...running!

And I love, love, love your charmed sense of humour...

Bravo!

And, of course, your outfit is rockin' as usual. Those wedges look really neat.

Thank you so, F! I don't really care about running, either, but it's been really fun to see the reactions of seasoned runners!
