Gliding at Whenuapai

We recently met some awesome, fellow former residents of Cascadia. Roberta is an urban planner, and Adam is an IT security guy with a number of cool hobbies including gliding. Last weekend, he offered to take me up in a glider and I jumped on the opportunity. Here are some pictures, unsorted, from the day.

Also, I'll try to figure out how to attach a Google Earth data file of the flight, as Adam is super tech-savvy and captured full GPS data.

The eye twitch

I am now on day 7 of a persistent eye twitch.  It's probably caused by stress, though the optometrist says that there isn't much data on what actually causes the buggers.  I'm thinking that lots of long days and nights at the office staring down student handwriting has something to do with it.  My nose now sports new glasses (time for an upgrade, anyway) and I'm trying to read less, though I'm not having much success on that front.

How long have eye twitches lasted for y'all out there?  Any record holders, or am I setting a new record?
