Heard today at work, as I arrived to a meeting late:

"Hey, you got some sun this weekend."

"I get sun every weekend."

It was only later that I realized how un-computer-geeky I've been this summer. I've spent every weekend I can outside and away from the computer. And, if the day is going well, I'm often 3,000 - 9,000 feet in the air. Sometimes more.

It's good to have a hobby that gets me out of the house.

As Scoble just said, "That's OK, it's July. Go out and get some sunshine!"

Agreed. I think I'd go nuts if I wasn't flying every weekend. Even those days where I struggle for hours, trying to gain enough altitude to get home--they're better than sitting indoors with the laptop.

when the sun comes up, you know you've spent FAR too much time on multiplayer Quake or Medal Of Honor...

Sun? Sun? Sun? Wait! I think I saw that once... I am the new girl on the block and I thought I would drop in and read awhile. What is all this blogging about, anyway? I had to find out for myself!

Mostly, blogging is the ultimate self indulgence. :-)

Sunlight is toxic, overexposure gives you skin cancer. Use sunscreen if you must go out in the sun, I recommend Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 30.

Sun's still there, even in the middle of the winter...Kirkwood, 25 inches of fresh snow yesterday...You need a hobby in the winter too.
