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?

Jamblessed, you said that "the current administration and foreign affairs really really scares me." I know the feeling, but would be curious to know what it is you find scary about the situation.

Religious fundamentalists of any stripe are sort of scary.

"Religious fundamentalists of any stripe are sort of scary." --------- Certainly true. However, in Syria (and previously in Iraq), the jihadis are actively going after the Christians. I talk weekly to a friend of mine in Damascus. She is Sunni, but she lives in an old neighborhood that is mixed, leaning towards a Christian majority. She told me several months ago that it was getting very dangerous in that area, because of the large Christian population.

Now that's dedication to exercise. 

Yes, when I am determined, I am 100%. My son was sick yesterday and I was going to go in but I decided against it. I still have Wed. class and Thurs. 2 classes so I am ok for this week.

Your dedication is inspiring, Morty. 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.

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.
