Completely random Saturday ramblings

First off, I’m quite pleased with my track session this afternoon. I rode a 9.1 second flying lap (my fastest ever), I managed to do 5 consecutive sub-10 second laps (never done that before), I did a 1:19.6 flying Kilo, and I traded pulls with Clark Sheehan (7-up, USPS, national champ many times on the track) for a while without looking like a total tool or completely blowing up. Not sure Clark was really trying too hard, though!

Ok, so that’s boring. Here’s something else that you’ll regret having wasted time reading when you’re on your deathbed: I really like this comic (both XKCD in general and the specific one in the link). Does anyone else out there spend a lot of time trying to figure out where to sit and/or convince other people to sit at parties, or worry about what angle to put couches at to maximize fun conversation for different numbers of people?

I try to talk about this with my friends occasionally, and they start to glaze over after about 10 seconds. So probably not.
