Oh am I hurting this morning. My legs and back are so sore I could hardly crawl out of bed. Not only did I run further yesterday than I have ever run before but I did it after nearly two weeks of inactivity. In a weird sort of way though it feels good. I can feel those muscles rebuilding and if I can actually go seven miles running off and on then perhaps there is a glimmer of hope that I'll be able to do Kira's half marathon with her. I guess that all depends on Doctor Kane and how well he cleans up my meniscus. I wonder if he wants me to quit running until after he has cleaned things up? I imagine excessive swelling may make the surgery more difficult. I will ask him that question because I can guarantee you that there is significant swelling in my knee this morning.
Right now I am sitting in this meeting listening to the committee decide exactly how cell and pack suppliers should submit their requests to have a cell qualified. I really don't care how they do that but they have talked for at least 45 minutes on the topic and so I'm going to write until they move on to another topic. While I was bored I read an email with a link to an article that referenced another article that mentioned what the top ten most intelligent animals are. Did you ever wonder what they were? Well then let me tell you. In order of smartest to less smart they are
1) Man (and of course that includes Women)
2) Ape (no surprise)
3) Dolphin (no surprise there either)
5) Octopus (that one surprised me)
6) Crow (in particular Ravens)
7) Squirrels (this one surprised me too)
10) Pigs (I actually thought pigs ranked higher than dogs)
So I am now back in my hotel room. Rather than go out for dinner tonight I just bought a meat ball sandwich at Subway and read my book. I gave up on Heroes last night too because this book is so entrancing that I had to read it. Now my biggest fear is that I will finish it before my plane lands tomorrow and I won't have anything to read on the plane. Maybe tonight I will watch another disk of Heroes and save the book. The CTIA guys organized a tour of he capitol building so I'm kind of excited about tomorrow. I will have my camera ready.
