All my favorite music podcasts have come out with their "best of" lists for the year - listener's pick's, critic's picks, best songs, biggest surprises, you get the idea. I'm spending a lot of time listening to the stuff I missed throughout the year. There is so much good music; I will never get to it all.

I went snowboarding with the Brickmans. I had a great time and am actually not completely terrible. My knees and my backside are completely bruised from falling, but I was still in it. Then I gave myself a concussion. And that was that.
The Brickmans took care of me for the rest of the day.

I love to sit in a coffee shop and read a book. I have plenty of coffee and a wonderful space to read at home, but there is something about sitting in a booth surrounded by strangers that makes me feel as though I'm part of a community. And I can't seem to brew a great cup of coffee at home.

Drove two hours to Belgrade today for a story. It was a tight turn, but a fun story. I should have had Aristea take a picture of my frantic editing in the SAT truck, but I was too focused to think of anything else but the story. Today was one of those days when I needed 15 more minutes to edit, 10 even. 10 minutes is forever. But 10 o'clock comes at the same time everyday and the story has to get on TV.
This photo is on the two hour drive home after I demolished my emergency stash of trail mix and started breathing again. Rocking out to Christmas tunes.

I have been going to the Egg and I restaurant in South Minneapolis after long runs as a reward for, well, running a long way. I get a single kamikaze pancake and a side of three sausage links, coffee and OJ. I have never ever finished the entire thing. Until today. And I didn't even go on a long run. I just really wanted a pancake.

I had my first hockey game of the season tonight. My work schedule doesn't allow me to play at many games, but my team lets me come whenever I can. Tonight I scored a goal and two assists and had a great time.

I've been cooking a lot more than usual. In the past couple weeks I've made latkes, soup, brownies, apple cake, and homemade mac and cheese. I made a stop after work today to pick up all ingredients for a pie I'm making tomorrow for Saturday's pie bake-off.
I made brownies for Liz. From scratch. They're amazing.
Helped my sister move again. She's finally in her new house and that makes me happy.
Today is Veteran's Day. My grandpa was a Marine. And a handsome Marine at that.
