Return of the Candiru

The dread candiru has resurfaced. This time, apparently in an episode of Grey's Anatomy. The appearance, as reported by not-so-loyal Pigdog reader KT, revolved around a hospital grandee who cut his Amazon vacation short because his huevos swelled to the size of grapefruits. It turns out the reason was the candiru, which set up camp in the dude while he was skinnydipping with his mistress. Good to see the candiru is getting more attention.

Tried another run home from work tonight. I always wonder what the people walking along the West Side Highway are doing. Another long day at work + rain + need for Friday drink makes a running commute tomorrow unlikely.

6.5 miles, 47:36

that fish should be banned from the earth, or at least from blogs!

I'm just glad they haven't yet mutated or evolved to be able to live on land. Imagine running from those in Riverside Park!
