132 Miles to a Deal

132 miles is how far I walked during the 2007-2008 WGA strike. I did guesstimate for the days when I didn't yet have a pedometer, including the rallies which typically were lighter walking-wise.

If I'd gone in one direction instead of in circles, I could've walked to these places:

Palm Springs
Barstow
Solvang
San Diego (almost)
Catalina Island and back, if I brought my flippers

And Warner Bros. was one of the walking-light gates. WGA brothers and sisters elsewhere walked much farther. If I'd been at Fox the whole time, I could've walked to, say, Fresno. But who'd want to?

Hey! Leave Fresno alone! It's a fine city, with, uh... lots of fine stuff in it!

Just don't walk there in the summer unless you want to burst into flame.

Mea culpa, going for the easy Fresno joke. :)

It's much, much better to make fun of Bakersfield instead.

Are you in the future? You posted this April 4! That's so cool.

Tell me if I've lost 10 pounds...

> Are you in the future?

Hah, no. Just confused, so confused. Fixed, thanks. :)

Just think how fit you are! Seriously, I never thought of the picket lines in those terms, but it's a great reality check.
