A book club that works...

As I was walking to class at about 3:50, who should I see coming the other way? That adorable DJ, Adam. :-)

I love this Thursday class. It's 3 hours long, but it just flies by. We read an article in class, each of us taking a page or so to read, and then discussed it afterward. I remember thinking about halfway through the discussion, "This is so great. It's like a book club that works."

I looked for a place to park around Carmichael Gymnasium after class, with no luck. Just jam-packed at 7:00. I decided to go back later. I stopped at Burger King and ate on the way home, and then stopped at the grocery store.

I went back to the gym at 9:30, and got on an elliptical machine at 9:45. I worked 30 minutes, burning off 350 calories according to the readout, and then walked 6.5 laps on the indoor track, which is one mile.

At 10:45, 15 minutes before closing, the place was hopping. It seemed unimaginable that in 15 minutes the place would be closed.
