1) Biking at 0830 is much more exciting then biking at 0930/1000ish. I do not like exciting commutes.
2) Picking a date for a vacation with 6 other people leads to exciting conversations. Doing it with engineers means you end up choosing a mathematical voting model and using it, and that actually ends up choosing a surprising result AND a soothing of ruffled feathers in regards to that result.
3) Biking at 52° was the first time I got cold wearing shorts and sandals on my bike ride.
4) New Zealand in July for a break from summer, Aruba in December for a break from winter. Awww, yeah. Best year ever. :-)
