I’m Not One for Snot Rockets

No Snot Rockets

I’m not one for snot rockets. For one thing, it grosses me the heck out. But I think I worry about snot rocket malfunctions more than anything. I fear blowing snot out of my nose with insufficient force and having it land in my beard or my thigh or the top of my shoe. I fear inhaling the snot into my mouth as I’m huffing and puffing.

So, I run with a pocket full of paper towels. Tissues don’t cut it. They just get sweaty and turn to mush. I use paper towels, basically one for each mile. I have persistent sinus problems in spite of taking allergy medicine every day. For a guy with such a condition, mastering the technique of the snot rocket would save a lot of hassle. But I opt for the paper towels instead. Snot rockets just aren’t my style.

The Characters One Can Find in Google Street View

While planning a little getaway with the little lady, a.k.a. – my wife, I checked out Google Street View for a particular town we had our sights set on. I wanted to get a feel for what the town was like. In the process, I got a glimpse of some of the local characters.

It was the guy brown-bagging a bottle of booze in broad daylight that inspired me to share screen snags of some of these locals. Or was it the guy walking around in pajamas? Or the dog that is…

Well, see for yourself. Here are characters from an American town, immortalized in that alternate universe of Google Street View.

Throwback Thursday – “DR. IAN NUTCAKES ON THE PSYCHIATRY OF TIES, CUBICLES AND OTHER ARTISTIC REPRESSIONS”

Heron Flight blog - May 10, 2004

MY LOYAL READERS…

It is my privilege to introduce to you my long time friend, associate and accomplice, Dr. Ian Nutcakes.

Dr. Nutcakes is a distinguised member of the American Psychiatric Society and a high level staff member of the Neggooozian Institute for Mental Research. In addition, Dr. Ian is founder of Concerned Physicians For Censored, Repressed And Otherwise Frustrated Artists, commonly known as CPFCRAOFA, an acronym which no one can pronounce but looks serious.

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, let’s go way back. 11 years back.

(Herein lies proof that I was a nutcase at least as far back as 11 years ago.)

Half Marathon Training – Weekly Long Run

Today’s Goal: 9 miles
Actual Distance: 9 miles
Time: 1:30:59

Time of Day: 8 AM
Notes: This is the longest distance I’ve ever run. I felt good the whole run. At one point it was like I forgot I was still running and was lost in my thoughts.


In order to amuse myself while covering what was quite a distance (for me), and for your entertainment, I took a selfie at each mile. You’re welcome.


That's weird shit.  Maybe running causes brain damage.
