Wow, I suck at this. At this point I think even my wife knows more about my daily life than my blog does. *shaking head*

So, let's get to know each other all over again.

Hi, my name is Mike and I'm a 41 year-old computer programmer living in San Francisco with my wife and 10 year-old daughter. I like word games, science fiction, booze, boobs, and cool foggy weather.

I also go running a couple times a week, despite the melodramatic posts I wrote in the last year about being injured, and how my knees are no longer capable of running. Turns out I was overreacting. I'm not running as often as I used to, but that's more an issue of schedule than injury. I'm also not running as fast as I used to. Now when I go run with my running club, there's a whole pack of people who kick my ass, including some gazelle-like women.

One of my previous main motivators for running was trying to break my records. I've decided that now that I'm in my 40s, I should reset all my records and start over. Maybe I'll do this every decade. Or year.

On other fronts, the job is going pretty well, or as well as possible given that my company is going to run out of money in just over 6 months. I anticipate sleeping a little less each night for the next half year.

With my remaining time, I marvel at my iPhone. It's probably the crappiest phone I've ever owned, but it's the most amazing thing I've ever put into my pocket. I choose to think of it as a remarkable pocket computer that happens to have a really crappy phone app in it.

So, that's me. I look forward to blogging in the future.

A pleasure to meet you, Mike. I was beginning to think you were the only one who posted to his blog less than I do. I do hope the time away was due to something genuinely fun and/or productive. Like ... composting?

Some encouraging words: Glad you're back - I've missed hearing about you, Hank, and the irrepressible Daisy.

Can you play "War Plates" on the iPhone? I think not.

Bones, I'm pretty sure my anemic posting schedule is still better than yours.

Mike! Thanks for the nice words.

Portlander, there's an app for that! Ok, maybe not yet, but I'm sure it'll be there soon.

I can relate to the hardly ever posting thing.

You've been better at it than me, Sue. Blog on!
