The lack of tomato robots is what has been preventing me from running marathons. And laziness.
 
Just what I've always needed and just in time for my first marathon in Japan!

"the robot features a timer so the runner does not ingest too many tomatoes at one go"

Phew.. That's always been my problem during marathons. Ingesting all my tomatoes simultaneously.

Um... High of 64, current temperature 93? I don't think that's quite right.

So tempted to apply to foster (and resist adopting) this puppy, who looks so much like Fiver, my Original Dog, when he was young, and watch the puppy play with Henry (who is named after Fiver's best friend). Except that Henry the First was a yellow Lab, and Fiver would never have played with any puppy, including Henry the Second.

That dog looks like he's part bat. In a good way.

Christmas Eve

Smoked Chateaubriand, Lord of the Rings, and Henry's first fire, whereupon he realizes that Santa will be completely incinerated if he tries to bring gifts. Good thing he already got a treat and a toy from his human.

I'm sure Henry has faith in the power of barking to keep Santa from murdering you all.

On this trip to New York, I was accused of being a "bleeding heart West Coast liberal," which offended me greatly. I may live on the West Coast, but I am NOT from the West Coast. I eat gluten, I don't eat kale, I prefer New York. So yes, my politics may be liberal and my heart may be bloody. BUT I AM NOT FROM THE WEST COAST.

Black Friday = me, my dog, electric blanket, couch, library book, Thanksgiving leftovers. Perfection, on sale now, for free. Bonus item: pajamas pants OK. Double bonus for best customers: random napping.

Can I be done yet?

I finally beat +Anand Rao but I don't think I can catch +Travis Wise. Maybe I should return this thing and call it a day (week, whatever). I'm more of a sedentary person than an ambulatory person at heart, unless there is meaningless competition and obsessive counting involved.

According to Fitbit, I'm really bad at sleeping through the night. I didn't really need Fitbit to tell me that.

I had the same experience.  A great little device, to tell me I was tired.  But I already knew that.  While I lofe the fitbit for counting steps, not sure what it really does for improving my sleep.

Henry had human food and is getting post-dinner pets. If he had thumbs, he would give Thanksgiving two thumbs up.

Introduction
I work for Google, but if you're looking for deep insights or secret sauce, I don't have any to share. If you're looking for random things I find funny or pictures of my dog, you've come to the right place.

+1: my original dog Fiver (RIP 2013), my new dog Henry, scuba diving (~300 dives), Kindle (100-150 books/year), food (including but not limited to pork belly), travel (50+ countries so far), sleep, too much TV, sun, gummy candy (I bring 20-30 pounds back every time I visit Zurich), friends, odd hypotheticals, Saturdays, lip balm (Smith's Rosebud).

-1: smoke, clouds, cold, insomnia, motorcycles, cats, delays, lamb, goat cheese, awkward small talk.
Bragging rights
I taught my dog how to go up and down stairs without dying of cuteness.

A solid option that makes it into our short list whenever we're considering going out to eat in the South Bay. Fun cocktails, and the food is good (although sometimes on the salty side). Reservations recommended.

Pros: 24-hour vet with in-house pharmacy, which is super-convenient. Cons: It's on the pricey side, and since there are so many vets, you rarely see the same one, so they don't get to know your pet's issues very well.

One of the few places we go to again and again. Stick to the skewers (my personal favorites are the pork cheeks and the tomatoes wrapped in thinly sliced pork).
