A friend from high school +Troy Tegeder  made this based on that dress thing going around. I couldn't get a single one correct, can't tell if he's just messing with everyone or maybe I am really seeing colors differently.
Getting the right color is actually a lot harder than it looks. If you get ...

I expected a much better book by Dave Eggers. Couldn't help going into reading this that he was talking about Google, but the story is so far from being about Google or Facebook or whatever other real company. Overall, it was boring, unrealistic, and too one-sided with no almost no discourse on the benefits of privacy.

Good for you for finishing it. This was my first Eggers experience, and I wasn't able to force myself to read the last fifth of the book. My reactions were very similar to yours.

First place(officially, 3rd unofficially) this morning in the "West Seattle Fat Ass" 25km race. Ran the first few miles as a warmup but this was still a longer race than I've trained for.

Has anyone tried these shoes? They are 60% off on Amazon's daily deal.

I'd believe that, they look gimmicky.

I went to Snowbasin in Utah on Sunday and it was raining 45 degrees F. I haven't been on the mountain yet this season.

+Lex Ludtke​ this was the comparison article I was telling you about. 
With some bad bounces and unlucky timing, the better team didn't get the result they expected. They should have won more easily than they actually did.

I wish! It was from the Inside the NFL highlights. They posted them online the next day.

At some point after moving back to Seattle a year ago, I decided to try to run/walk/bike every road, alley, and trail in the North half of Seattle. This picture captures one year of activities: 1230 miles of running, 200 miles of walking, and 620 miles of biking. It was a good way to keep things interesting and see a lot of Seattle. Will need to move on to Queen Anne and Magnolia for 2015.
