I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

Lately, I find your blogs inspirational and witty!

From Jon on Thu, Jan 08, 2009 at 00:16:16

I bet no one thought I could make my entry shorter than yesterday's. But I did- I omitted the period today!

Thanks, JD. Glad to inspire you! :)

you make me laugh..deep down inside..very deep down...somewhere in there.

From Adam RW on Thu, Jan 08, 2009 at 01:29:29

Marci, I think you are the one who makes us laugh. Jon, I think you've found the secret to getting comments. I think you've gotten more with the smaller your entry gets.

From jtshad on Thu, Jan 08, 2009 at 08:10:29

Adam, we are just glad he is finally not saying so much so we can get a word in edgewise!

Marci, have you been watching "Hitch" lately, 'cause that line sounds eeriely familiar?

From Jon on Thu, Jan 08, 2009 at 13:15:45

Shorter entry = more comments. Interesting. Maybe if I just don't put anything I could get myself on the Hot Discussions board.

Here is a bump toward your hot discussion goal.

And I hope you feel better soon.
