I ran in Boston last July and not only had a good run, but was amazed at the number of people out for a run. I've run in many cities, but have never seen so many other people out running as I did in Boston.

COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America .

ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It's 7.8%.

COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?

ABBOTT: No, that's 14.7%.

COSTELLO: You just said 7.8%.

ABBOTT: 7.8% Unemployed.

COSTELLO: Right 7.8% out of work.

ABBOTT: No, that's 14.7%.

COSTELLO: Okay, so it's 14.7% unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, that's 7.8%.

COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 7.8% or 14.7%?

ABBOTT: 7.8% are unemployed. 14.7% are out of work.

COSTELLO: If you are out of work you are unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, Congress said you can't count the "Out of Work" as the unemployed.

You have to look for work to be unemployed.

COSTELLO: BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!!!

ABBOTT: No, you miss his point.

COSTELLO: What point?

ABBOTT: Someone who doesn't look for work can't be counted with those who look for work. It wouldn't be fair.

COSTELLO: To whom?

ABBOTT: The unemployed.

COSTELLO: But ALL of them are out of work.

ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work gave up looking and if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.

COSTELLO: So if you're off the unemployment roles that would count as less unemployment?

ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!

COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don't look for work?

ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That's how they get it to 7.8%. Otherwise it would be 14.7%. Our govt. doesn't want you to read about 14.7% unemployment.



COSTELLO: That would be tough on those running for reelection.



ABBOTT: Absolutely.



COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two ways to bring down the unemployment number?

ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.

COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?

ABBOTT: Correct.

COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?

ABBOTT: Bingo.

COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to have people stop looking for work.

ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like an Economist.

COSTELLO: I don't even know what the hell I just said!

ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like Congress

It really is. There are so many people who run along the Charles river.. Esp. in the summertime.

Can't wait for summer!

I guess what made me happy was today was an off day and I got to sleep in with my girlfriend instead if getting up at 440am and running.

Yup, it's really fantastic. Keeps me motivated.

I'm taking the rest of the week off. My legs feel like jello and my calfs burn with each step ffffuuuu.gif

July? Sounds about right!

Anyway, I'm noticing that the number of miles I run is directly correlated with the amount of suckage I had to endure that work day.

(Oh God, I really set myself up with that one, didn't I?)

Took care of my budgets for the next ten months. Some things were surprising, some not so much (like Copenhagen being expensive). I estimated 20% relative deflation of the Icelandic Krona, 10% increase in the price of groceries in Denmark, and losing 25% of my hours at work, and made a point of leaving out the back-wages I'm currently owed, just as a precaution, so I have less money than I thought, but the advantage is I should be able to actually enjoy life a bit in Copenhagen, especially if I get either of the jobs I'm planning to apply for.

 

Also, finally got my tax info sorted, so boss can start paying me my back-wages :)

I actually don't. It's been ages since I was last there.
I was kind of hoping SF won the Superbowl so the mood would be a bit more cheery.
Now I get depression.
