Since my birthday, my target cardio-workout heart-rate on the lifecycle has gone down one beat per minute.

Please advise.

corporatecasual: Yes

I am watching my parents' house while they are away on vacation, and I got kind of nervous last night thinking about what would happen if I slipped and fell and hit my head because no one would find me for days.

But then I was thinking, well, when you are really old and living on your own because no one loves you, won't it be much of the same except with even more dangerous consequences from a fall like that?

And I realized yes.

corporatecasual: Overheard Conversation (http://www.livejournal.com/users/oktiger/363668.html)

Mom: I am very excited about Trader Joes, too. Everyone at work was talking about it.

Dad: They have very good store bought sushi. Excitement doesn't even begin to describe what I am feeling about a new grocery store opening in the vicinity. Tremendous excitement is a closer approximation.

Mom: They also have peanut butter filled chocolated covered pretzels. AND REALLY GOOD FROZEN THINGS. and this salsa that is so tasty and the cheapest dairy ever. It is especially helpful when I need to bring something in to work, for one of the secretaries' birthdays or something.

Dad: Parking looks like it will be difficult, though. But it's so close, you have all that extra time not spent in transit to look for a spot near the door! This is the best thing that's happened to us since they opened the new Whole Foods!!

Mom: It is very exciting. And since we are only a thousand years old, we will enjoy it for a long time to come, or until a newer grocery store opens. Then we can talk about THAT!

I was watching The Land Before Time last night, and I noticed that the dinosaurs who were migrating south to avoid the approaching glacier were checking their e-mail on the same computer I use at work!

I shit you not:

NPR's Mara Liasson: "And coming up in this hour, John Kerry's bid for the White House, your letters, and new music from Stereolab."

This day I was reading an excerpt from Garrison Keillor's new novel on the internet and thought to myself, "Man, this Garrison Keillor is witty and intelligent, I would love to read the rest of this novel." Then I realized that I was fifty two years old and had donated three percent of my annual income to NPR in order to get that nifty tote.

They interviewed teenagers and school-age children on NPR about their thoughts on Mars exploration, and I had a total old person moment. "What are they teaching you kids in school?" I thought to myself. "My god, things were different when I was your age."

Some reasons we might want to explore Mars:

"In case when the world ends, or something hits it, and we run out of life, we will have some people on another planet."

"Maybe there are some medicines there."

"It would be cool. Who knows, maybe Mars is a good vacation spot."

"I've never been to Mars. If I went there by myself I would go with someone and never be alone."

Okay, that last one was, like, four years old. But you'll agree that he's an idiot. How can you go alone and go with someone, Baby Genius? And how much you want to bet that first guy has seen Armageddon and Deep Impact over one hundred billion times. When "something hits it"? WHEN "SOMETHING HITS IT"?
