Somewhere Across Forever

Century Plaza TowersI managed to hit my new goal of 3500 Nike Fuel points on Sunday, so I feel pretty good about that. (I did the P90X Shoulders & Arms workout in the middle of the afternoon.) After an early dinner at Lakeside Golf Club, my wife and I watched this week’s Saturday Night Live, part three of the Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Special, Dexter, Homeland, and the season premier of The Walking Dead. (Sunday nights are traditionally when we go ape with the TV.)

I was pretty thick and syrupy when I crawled out of bed at six o’clock. It felt like it took me forever to get into a good stride on my run. By the time I passed the Century Plaza Towers, though, I was cruising. My mom and I used to joke all the time about how crazy it was that I live down the street from Nakatomi Plaza, but for the life of me I can’t remember if we ever talked about the fact that I also live right next to the Remington Steele buildings. Damn, she loved that show. Damn, I miss her.

Here’s what I heard while I ran today:

I'll never share your email address and it won't be published.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
