3.7 miles tonight puts me at 37 miles for the month and 37% done [Nov. 11th, 2007|10:48 pm]

The Haskell kids'll appreciate this: I went by a sign that appeared to read "PCRi", and my knee-jerk thought was, "Oh, that must be the interactive environment for PCR."

Mike jonatthebar's iPod's screen is dead, but everything else about it functions fine, so he's simply listening to everything on it in alphabetical order. He was blasting AC/DC when he left my place tonight. I've just gotten back from my run, and I see he's written:

Things improved greatly on the way home when I moved on to Ace of Base. If you haven't given "The Sign" a play in the last 12 years, you owe it to yourself. If possible, with the windows rolled down, while scooping the loop in downtown Vancouver. Yeah.

My friends are awesome.

The win-content of this post is almost overwhelming :)

Almost halfway! We could make NaRoRuMo Winner shirts or something to celebrate -- the novel-writing kids have swag, yes?

Then let's make some! Maybe nice synthetic running shirts? I'm looking around for somebody that custom prints those...

What should they have on them? You're all up on it when it comes to graphic design, yes?

Why would you think that? I'm terrible at graphic design. Having said that, what do you think of something like this (except not using stolen stock images with don't-steal-me watermarks on them):

run-time environment

And the back would just say "NaRoRuMo 2007", or maybe some statistics about our total mileage and that kind of thing.

At one point, you were teaching design for the childrens, right? (maybe I'm misremembering? or maybe it was web design? ...)

I think it should definitely have the word "Winner" on it somewhere.

"NaRoRuMo 2007: 30 days. 367 miles. Five cities. Two winners."

Maybe we could go with a trendy lowercase monospaced font?

Yeah, my web design kids didn't learn anything about 'design'. And whether they learned anything about 'web' is debatable.

Yeah, let's put that on the back! But I don't wanna wear anything monospaced.

I'm bummed my 'run-time environment' rebus went right past you, there.

Ah! Ah! Very nice. I think I didn't map the leaf to "environment". Pardon...

You try coming up with an icon for "environment", mister.

Ain't no shame in having to rock out for a few minutes.
