inessential by Brent Simmons


I'm working on Frontier 7. Gotta ship this puppy. The to-do list is getting short.

I started reading Daniel Boorstin's The Creators last night. I'm just a dozen or so pages into it -- but so far it's utterly entrancing. I read The Discoverers a few months ago and recommend it unreservedly.

I'm going to have the weirdest French accent. I have these French lessons on cassette tape, but I hadn't figured out when I would have to time to do them.

Then it occurred to me -- why not do them while I work out?

So there I am, doing my workout, trying to speak French -- je (breath) voudrais (breath) un verre (breath) de vin (deep breath) rouge.
