Politics, Weather, Photography, and the Dog
Tuesday 1 January 2013

In 2012:

  • I took 15 trips, visiting 2½ countries (England, France, Wales) and 9 states (Wisconsin, New York, California, Minnesota, Florida, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Georgia); flew 25 flight segments for 67,647 km; and drove 7,600 km.
  • The Daily Parker grew by 535 entries, ticking along at an average of 1.48 entries per day (as it has since December 2010).
  • I spent 189 hours walking Parker, 112 hours blogging, 222 hours commuting to work, 2,219 hours working for someone else, and 174 hours working for myself.
  • I took 3,955 photos, the fewest in 4 years.
  • I started 35 books, finished 31, dropped 2, and have 4 open right now. (Some of the ones I finished in 2012 I started in 2011.)

This compares similarly to 2011.

All right, 2012 is in the can. On to 2013: the first year since 1987 in which all four numbers are different.
