Happiness is a warm cat

Yesterday was a twelve-mile day. That's how many miles I hiked between 2pm and 6:30pm, for an average 2.67 mph. Not bad for a penguin who couldn't walk 6 months ago :).

The Mighty Fang is currently purring on my lap and staring up adoringly at my face. Fat furball knows where his kibble comes from, yessiree. Or is merely imagining what penguin tastes like. Whatever.

I'm heading out to ride my motorcycle, it's tired of lurking in my garage. Well, as soon as TMF finishes his current purr-and-adore session. Later.

  1. That is a damn good hike, the most I hike is into the hot springs, about five miles round trip.

    But I'm going camping on top of a mountain in the morning so maybe I'll do some longer hikes up there.

  2. The Emperor Penguin hikes 32-75 miles to mate, but your goal is commendable considering they have a greater incentive.


  3. Everybody I'm talking with these days is running/walking in the neighborhood of 10 miles a day.

    Do you think it's a substitute for good health care or just a mental health measure?

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
