Blabity Blah Blogging

  • My tummy is on fire from today's lunch -- Mexican -- cheese enchilada and French fries. Dammit why can't I say no to the fry??
  • I [not-so] secretly hope Justin Bieber IS the baby's daddy. I don't know why it would amuse the hell out of me. 
    • I'm so happy I have no children that are of an age that they'd make me listen to/see him. I can't stand him.
    • For the record, the only children I have are a dog and a cat.
  • Yesterday I start resort shopping for the 2012 Wine & Dine Half Marathon .... next September/October. 
  • I am soooooo excited for the Las Vegas Rock'n'Roll Half Marathon. I LOVE the party atmosphere of a Rock'n'Roll race, and when coupled with my favorite city - this is a win-win for me. I'm excited for Michael Jackson Cirque, for huge drinks, for the expo, for the expo shopping, for the Titanic exhibit, for Nathan's French fries, for Margaritaville, for EVERYTHING!!
  • I think I have my 3 upcoming half marathon race day outfits picked! I need to do some test runs just to be sure, but I think I've got it. I still need to work on my Fiesta 5K outfit though. *must not forget my maracas*  (Abby, have you figured out your 5K outfit??)
  • I'm looking forward to a lazy weekend with my mommy ..... watching Harry Potter, Pirates, Dark Shadows and documentaries about serial killers. I like a little variety! And we're going to have a lovely fire. I love a good fire on a 3-day weekend.
  • My mom got me a shirt at the Bucket of Blood saloon for my birthday. I LOVE it. It is going to Vegas and Florida with me. It is my new favorite shirt. I'm wearing it right today.
  • The song I'm hearing right now is Your Woman by White Town. I remember calling the radio station in college to ask if it was a man or woman singing. He laughed and said it is a man. So then the lyrics confuse me.
    • Well I guess what you say is true
      I could never be the right kind of girl for you

      I could never be your woman
      I could never be your woman
    • Is this just the world's most gay friendly song and I never knew it?
  • I think with my newly free weekends I'm going to do a rehab on my house. I want to freshen up each room -- and finally put away all of my race stuff and hang my medals. I think I need to expand my running drawers. I suspect a lot of clothes and movies and who knows what will be donated to the local 2nd had store (the money goes to help the animals where I adopted my dog!). So if you are in need of junk ... head that way and get my stuff!
  • I'm ready for a Team Jam reunion. I'm thinking karaoke/sleep-over/nonsense in Southern California? Yeah? 
  • I was completely amused today when my marathon relay teammate, we are Agony of d'Feet, texted me for a good half marathon training program. Um, he's going to run this puppy in 90 minutes I bet. He is asking ME for advice? Turns out I have a ton more racing experience compare to him, but he has what I lack .... speed. And he doesn't know how to slack. Oh my gosh - we put the biggest slacker with the West Point grad that is a total perfectionist. This could be interesting!
  • Today's random photo:  my former Vegas shoes. *sigh* I miss my heels - I'm terrified to wear 3" and 4" heels now. With my luck I'd roll an ankle the night before the race.


  1. I'm up for a sleepover too! But I'll need to be dog-free first.

  2. I've been meaning to ask you about the best/cheapest/coolest resort to stay at for Wine and Dine. Find one and let me know so I can use it to convince S that I need to go to that race, with or without him.

  3. Secretly hoping he's the father too...shhhhh!!!!

  4. I love it that you are already thinking of a resort for the Wine & Dine!! Planners Unite!! :)

  5. You already have your outfits picked out?? You are a planner! I don't ever do that until like the week of. Probably not a good thing either!

  6. That's a funny team name!! haha!
    No, I have been a slacker on the race outfits. But I will work on it. With RnR out of the way, Disney is all I have to think about!

  7. The ONLY things I know I'm wearing for the 5K are our little sombreros and some rainbow leg sleeves ... they seemed festive!

  8. A wine and dine race..... Intriguing!!!!
