I want to go out and play!

The days are getting longer, and I'm in a slump and need to get out of it. I want to go out and have some fun. I'd like to go out with friends and do something that is:

- Outdoors
- Physically active
- Competitive but fun
- Free or extremely low-cost
- Did I mention fun??

I'm thinking things like Frisbee, touch football (which I have zero skill at but would be willing to learn), short relay races, softball??? Something that requires a minimum of equipment and skill but is fun and lots of people can play at once.

Any suggestions? Who's with me?

Bus stop prayer

Posted in a fit of creativity as a comment on an article on SFGate:

Our bus, which art snarled in traffic,
Swiftly may you come.
Thy passengers
Patiently wait
At shelters, benches, and sidewalks.
Take us this day to work and play.
And forgive us fares and passes,
As we forgive those who board through the back doors.
And lead us not back into our cars,
But deliver us from road rage.

(I had to look up the Lord's Prayer on Wikipedia to get the cadence just right...)
