Bill Roper's Journal
In Honor of the End of the Time Warp

I hadn't mentioned this, because I was afraid that I was going to "fall off the wagon" -- or, in this case, the exercycle -- but I have been on the exercycle every workday since the last week of June, with the exception of a couple of days when we were off to conventions where I would be doing plenty of heavy lifting anyway. I have even managed to keep it up with the girls going off to school this week. And that whole "going off to school" thing has resulted in a massive (and painful) rearrangement of sleep schedules around here.

My chosen reading for some time has been the collection of vintage Time magazines that I once subscribed to, but never had time to read. I have been working through mid-2007 lately and marveling at just how wrong everything was that we knew then. Also, I idly wonder whatever happened to the non-stinky durian that one fellow had developed. (A brief web search finds more articles from 2007 and nothing since then.)

However, I am running out of Time. Unless there is still another box of them cached in Katie and Julie's closet, I am going to have to find something else to read next week while pedaling away.

Go you!

I had to google durian to find out what it was.

Thanks! Yeah, you don't tend to hear a lot about durian in the U.S., for reasons that seem obvious.

You could always just go back to the beginning of the stack. It's just a jump to the left...

I've actually been discarding the old copies of Time in the recycling with a great deal of satisfaction.

Time, Time, Time, see what's become of me?

I have a pile of more recent Time mags you can have!

Thanks! Fortunately, Gretchen found the other box of Time in the girls' closet, so I'm now set for the next year or so.

(In this case, the year appears to be 2003 and 2004...)

And everything we know now will be wrong in the future.
