I am pleased that I got back to running daily, though I am not sure my body is. However, I need to find some way to practice yoga more and should probably seriously look into finding a studio here in Philadelphia to do some work exchange with.
Most memorable event of the week: I saw Mogwai at Union Transfer on Tuesday. An old friend who I have long since lost contact with introduced me to them over a decade ago. I haven’t listened to them much in recent years, but this show was already canceled about 10 times (might be a slight exaggeration, but I’m not sure at this point) and who knows when the next will happen so I figured I would go. I love live music and unfortunately haven’t gotten to enjoy it enough in recent years. The only way I can really describe the music of Mogwai is “beautiful noise”. Really, really beautiful noise.
Best thing I ate: I don’t recall having eaten much that was very memorable this week as I have been trying to eat both healthier and at home. I did finally have the small strawberry rhubarb pie I purchased last week from some Amish stand that was part of a random farm market in center city. So delicious.
Best thing I drank: Three Floyds Dreadnaught IPA. Who knows when I will ever get to enjoy this again. Somehow a keg of it ended up here (I won’t ask any questions) so I extended my usual run to the farmers’ market this AM about a mile west to get a glass. So there I was drinking a pint of 9.5% ABV beer around noon on a Sunday morning by myself in my running clothes. At least it was a more casual cafe/bottle shop environment. Beer with that high of an ABV is generally not served in pint glasses so I am not sure if this was a server mistake or what. Definitely made me feel a bit fuzzy though. Anyway, this is a really beautiful beer. Wonderful combination of hops, malts, and citrus notes. Just very clean and balanced.
