Beard update: There are parts over an inch long. I wouldn't categorise it as 'majestic' yet, but it's a solid work in progress.
Today I flew a kite for the first time. I'm 30 years and 5 months old.
9AM on a Sunday stop in Caffè Nero. The place was empty aside from us. Why had I not discovered this before?!
This drinking ale in thirds thing is something I could get used to.
The morning after the beer festival before. That sounds like a big deal, but actually I only had about 3 pints over 8 hours.
The weekend is precious. Use your time wisely.

Oddly, my best runs are when I’m not thinking about running. twitter.com/bigthink/statu…
Nobody cares how far you've run.

I need to either diversify my podcast listening habits, or I need to start my own.
On this basis, don’t ever start the Tim Ferriss podcast. It’s my running soundtrack and I struggle keeping up. twitter.com/JustSimmo/stat…
* ‘shenaniburn’ means to be introspective around a controlled fire that took longer to light than it did to enjoy. (cc @Stooeyking)
I’m going to compile a list of words that don’t exist but should. ‘Beingness’ is up there. So is ‘shenaniburn’.
Yes, that autocorrected it as I typed it.
Can we all agree that ‘beingness’ is a real word, and that every spellcheck in the world is just plain wrong at this point?
I feel like the Mission Impossible films need to stop being actually quite good. They're not *supposed* to be actually quite good, actually.
Shake it like a polaroid picture! ...A polaroid. It's a photograph. No, not a digital one. I don't want you to shake your phone. Never mind.

I had no idea #teambeard was a thing.
I was just greeted in Chesham High Street with the words 'TEAM BEARD' by a stranger. With a beard. So there's that.
I love the idea of ‘rupturing’ gadgets. Sounds oh so dramatic.
On the topic, I’m doing #ReflectiveRepatterning on Introversion/Extroversion. @ChrisMilbank
Got to love Evernote’s context article suggestions. I typed the word ‘introvert’ and it almost ruptured by MacBook.
I use a few of these. Worth checking out. twitter.com/mashable/statu…

Meditated this morning. As in proper meditation, for the sake of it. First time in ages. I’m making a daily habit of it now.
THE MINION MUG WAS A PRESENT, I MEAN IT.
Yes, running recovery means drinking really strong coffee from a mug with minions on it.

I could just substitute coffee for water, but that’s less fun.
Working on the habit of drinking more water; for every coffee, I also have to have a glass of water. Didn’t think this through… #drowning

There're few things worse than flashing your phone back to factory settings, and then having to spend weeks re-teaching it place names.
There're few things better than running on a Saturday and treating the market on Chesham High Street like your own personal obstacle course.
