Other than that, the only news is that I have signed up for a biathlon. No, this is not to be used as evidence as any of the following:
a) Karla has been replaced with a Karla-resembling robot
b) Karla has been brainwashed by aliens
..or worst of all,
c) Karla is becoming one of those annoying health-nuts.
Allow me to pre-emptively dispel any and all of these conclusions, and instead assure you that it's a really wussed-down biathlon (3.5k, 10k on a bike, then 1.5k) where you get a cool shirt for participating. Plus, it's sponsored by Special K, which for most of my childhood I believed was a cereal named solely to proclaim my greatness to the cereal-consuming masses. (Hey, I was 5.) ;-) So here are the details...
Wish me luck! In the meantime, it's time to enjoy having a phone that works. Hooray!!!
