Time Event
Nudists have it right
Clothes are too much of a hassle.

I'm packing for a two week trip to Scotland this afternoon and want some nice looking trousers to wear. My trousers come in only these varieties:

* Looks nice but have a hole in the right rear pocket (*why* do *4* pants have this same hole??).
* Looks nice but isn't the right size (short inseam, wide waist, narrow waist).
* Jeans, but not the sexy fashionable type.
* Used to look nice but was left in the dryer too long and now are "broken."

I went shopping a few weeks back, and again last weekend (Great Mall in Milpitas is a *Mecca* of khaki outlet stores), but came up with only one new pair of trousers (fitting the rare "looks nice and fits" category). For my trip I need a few pairs of pants. So, my choices are:

1. Iron the broken pants.
2. Suck it up and go with the narrow waist pants.
3. Jeans.

I tried (1) this afternoon, no joy. I plan to take option (2) possibly squeezing the jeans (3) into checked luggage. Or, do you think anyone would notice a little worn-thin spot on the right rear pocket? I mean, who'd be looking at my rear?
TODO by end of September
Because, why not:

1. Go overnight hiking.
2. Build something with EL wire.
3. Organize a group trip to Vegas.
4. Go to the gym twice a week for at least one month.
5. Run every other day for at least one month.
6. Drive out to see the Altamont pass wind farm
7. Bike 300 miles (not at once!).
8. Reconnect with my Bay Area friends from whom I've drifted.
9. Have a "favorite restaurant" for every city between San Jose and San Francisco.
10. Visit SF MoMA.
11. Host monthly cookie baking parties.

Hm, I think I need some sort of reward if I make all these things by end of September. Of course, actually *doing* all these things by end of September would be plenty of reward in itself.
