Yeah, it’s the little thing s that get me.
So I’ve been working out of town this week, and will be until about the end of April. Friday I came home and was sitting around looking to just relax, but then I read this. Now I’d been suffering through near freezing mornings, and two days of cold rain with just a picnic type canopy to shelter under. I decided I needed to get outside.
Friday afternoon, I did 14.7 miles on my bike, making it to the radio towers out near Costco-Richmond. Today I made it all the way to Craneway for 24.1 miles. and while I’m tired, I feel really good.
you see the hotel I’m staying at has minimal exercise facilities. There’s a recumbent bike, a treadmill, and a machine that allows very specific workout positions. Plus I’ve got a big exercise ball to do crunches on as well as some other things. But nothing beats being out for an hour or two on a bike.
Now, because I’m gone for so long, Jennifer needs some other forms of entertainment, so I shifted all of our Netflix DVDs to her queue. But one had gotten through before I did that, so I had a movie to watch this weekend: the DC animated feature Green Lantern – Emerald Knights.
Now this is reminiscent of the old Tales Green Lantern Corps quarterlies that used to tell stories from the Book of Oa. This DVD tells tales related by Hal Jordan, once again voiced by Nathan Fillion, to the rookie Lantern Arisia. they are well told, and for those in the know of Corps mythology, most have an underlying story that makes them that much deeper. Not that a lack of knowledge takes anything away from the telling.
Add to this that I’ve had a lull in books, so I’ve been catching up on my physical comics reading, and I was pretty psyched by this DVD.
As for the title… it’s from the DVD, and had me howling with laughter just like the Lanterns that said it as a joke.
