Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

A challenging 140km race

This piece about Jeremy ran on the AUS blog today: AUS professor to compete in challenging 140km race.

I have to say, I love the use of "challenging" here. Because 140km doesn't make it obvious enough.

Speaking of obvious, obviously I am very proud of Jeremy and I can't wait to hear how it all goes as he runs tomorrow. And the next day. And the day after that.

In the article, it quotes Jeremy as saying that while he stays away from sweets, he does occasionally eat chocolate, peanut butter, and ice cream. What he actually said was that he occasionally eats chocolate peanut butter ice cream. I am so sad that there is an editor out there who doesn't know that chocolate peanut butter ice cream is a thing! I hope s/he encounters it someday soon.

Happy racing!
