1. Do you get jet-lagged when you fly?

2. What was the last destination you flew to or from?

3. Describe your most recent shoe purchase.

4. How do you usually celebrate your birthday (if you celebrate at all)?

5. Do you believe Kerry, when he says that al-Qaeda is only a minor element in the Syrian rebellion?

Grasshoppers is a brand name, but I think of them as one particular style. The ones I have are canvas slip-ons, and they are SUPER comfy. I have several pair in different colors.

I thought the same thing about Kerry, but his face is so lopsided--the eyes especially, that it got me thinking that he may have some issues that he's taking steroids for.

Your dedication is inspiring, Morty.

Thank you Laughing

Last year when I was on sabbatical I was hitting the gym 4-5 days a week. It's six weeks into the semester and now it's more like 2-3 days.

No reason to pass up free classes that is such a convenience also.

My usual is 5-6 days a week. However, in September, I've done some form of exercise every day.  On a few of those days, it was a 2mile walk with the dog, which isn't up to my usual exertion levels, but I've done something *active* every day in September.  This was in response to a challenge with some friends, but I think I'll keep it up for October.   It's really only adding 1-2 days a week, so it hasn't seemed that hard.

It will be harder in October, because I'll be chaperoning the band trip (3 days) and don't know if our hotel has a gym, and won't be able to leave the group for long so even getting a run or a walk in might be difficult.  I'll have to be very creative.

I have a bunch of things that coincide with exercise days too next month so I am trying to figure out how to fit it all in. I might just have to miss a day so I can see my dd's swim meet, which takes priority over an hour class that can be done again.

I agree, Morty is very dedicated to exercise.. It's cool when you have that down to a routine like you do too.

Agreed, but there's scary beliefs (young earth creationism) and scary practices (Allah wants me to kill infidels so I'll strap on this bomb and obey). While people with scary beliefs can do stuff like wreck a school curriculum (by taking evolution out of its biology books, for example), they very rarely blow themselves up in order to kill other people.</p><p>And yeah, I remember the Crusade and the Inquisition, but I think that even the most fundamentalist Christians have come a long way since the Middle Ages, a few whacko abortion clinic bombers notwithstanding.

Well written.
