Um, thoughts.

About that whole 10-minute mole thing. I have now realized the level to which I despise, loathe, running. Ugh.  Suggestions for another physical fitness goal?

I don’t really care about making fish now. Should I?

I will have to post almost every day to hit 400. Here goes nothing.

Wish me luck,
