Wore my nifty new Brooks eco friendly green racing flats. They are called the "Green Silence". Not only did I feel fast, but also superior to those of you still wearing the old fashioned shoes that destroy the planet.

well, you are certainly not doing your part to contribute to the inversion. i'll go idle my car in the driveway for an hour to make up for your lack of participation.

I would try to idle my car but, as you may recall, I own a hybrid, which automatically shuts off when I'm idling. Sheesh! It's really hard being so good.
