I'm WALKIN' here! [/New Yorker]

Miles walked Fri-Sun = 30.6

  • Miles walked Today = 10.2 + 4 in another hour
  • Pairs of socks = 5 (I've started changing them half-way through. >_<
  • Blisters = none. Woot! Let's hear it for letting your feet hit hobbit proportions... I long for a pedicure.
  • Deodorant sticks = 3. Have moved to prescription strength. TMI?
  • Number of cars that have almost run me over while walking in a protected crosswalk = 3
  • Number of drivers on MOTHER FUCKING CELL PHONES = 3
  • Number of hoods I have banged on after being honked at by said drivers on their cell phones = 1
  • People I'm walking for (at last count) = 43 and still counting. :) One of my flisters is getting a complete mastectomy this Friday. THIS IS A WAKE UP CALL, yes indeedy.


Want to get involved? You can donate (to either me or a general donation) or you can look for walks in your area. Also: CHECK YOUR BOOBS. The sooner found, the sooner that lump is gone. Age, lifestyle, family history has no bearing, ladies. (And gents.) We're all susceptible!

A big shout out to crevette who's 3 Day is this weekend. She's who inspired me to get involved, and her posts about 'ain't no funk like a 3 day funk, 'cause a 3 day funk don't stop!' inspired me to get the prescription deodorant. Hahahaha! *cheers her on*

It is hot and dry and no breeze today (that's how it feels, at least) so forgive me for not being peppy. I'm officially out of pep today. Lookin' for some pep, should you find some to spare. Or pink lemonade flavored Gatorade. I'd take that.

[ETA] Oh, forgot to mention that our local High School and UT are keeping my faith in football. COWBOYS, YOU ARE ON NOTICE. That was ABYSMAL. And I completely forgot to mention a2zmom's birthday this weekend, so I fail at everything. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ROBIN! *hearts you tunz, underline, underline*

Is... is that bad? Good? (That's about what it is here, minus the partly cloudy.) AT LEAST IT ISN'T 95!! With matching humidity, because I would TOTALLY do you a favor and come shoot your foot off. (I'd save it in ice for putting back on.)

Just think... this time next week you will be DONE! And hoefully getting a massage and pedicure and drinking many pounds of margaritas!

The prescription comes in No Scent, which is fine. I don't need no cherry blossoms comin' out of my pit. I just don't need Eau du Skoonk or Le Petite Leembeurgaire either. :)

I THINK YOU MEANT HOOK 'EM HORNS, SUE.

Aw, that's sweet, but if they aren't "high performance" socks, my feet wear holes in them after two walks. I've ruined a few pair since I started training, woe. *plays Taps for frog socks*

Today on the little blurb before the news, the weatherman intoned quite dramatically... One.More.Pleasant.Day.

THAT, my friend, is some P-E-P, PEP!

You got it, you got it, give me a P!
I said it, I said, give me an E!
You know it, you know, how 'bout a P?

WHAT'S THAT SPELL? TEQUILA! *drinks* :D

So many miles in all these days! And totally, with the fist on the hood, you get honorary nyc-status for at least two weeks.

Hahaha, HOORAY!! *is totally a New Yorker, what?* *does that hand under the chin thing*

And seriously - the woman was RUSHRUSHRUSHING to the gym to work out and the front fender TAPPED my knee. And then had the gaul to look at me, affronted, because I'm impeding her progress. When I have a protected "walk" sign flashing.

I'm going to start taking notes from the BFF school, where she used to take rocks in her pockets on runs when cars would try and drive off the shoulder and "scare" her. What is WRONG with people??

Oh man, that Eagles v. Cowboys game yesterday. I was all conflicted because we're Eagles fans (2nd team for me and Chris both), but I love my Drew Bledsoe and I was just delighted to watch him throwing to Terry Glenn again. So I kept screaming at the Cowboys offensive line for not protecting my boy while simultaneously rooting for Philly. So yeah, conflicted.

Anyway ... hobbit feet aside, if you're not familiar with BodyGlide, it's great for preventing blisters and chafing. And Coolmax (not cotton) socks. But you probably already know this. :)

THAT GAME ANGERED ME, OMG. Just... Crap. They played like crap. *huffs*

I've used BodyGlide in the past (when I ran 10Ks) but haven't needed it so far with this event, which is pretty cool. I'm bringing that and moleskin with me, in case, however. I'm a fan of Coolmax, too. Currently, my most favorite socks are Balega - they have built in arch-support AND wicking!!

WE WILL SEE WHO LAUGHS LAST!!

*knuckles tears away* Besides... I'm a UT fan more than a Cowboys' fan. *misses Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith*

You are not a loser. Think of it as helping to extend the festivities for me.

Keep on truckin' hon. And just to make you jealous, the last few days here, the weather has been perfect - sunny, bright blue sky, 70 degrees and no humidity. Plus my sunflowers are in full bloom, I'll take a pic and post.

Oooh, sunflowers!! And ha - in my family, we like to drag out our birthdays, too. So your birthday isn't officially over until you've heard from everyone you love! Dammit, if I could have convinced lettered to keep her trap shut, you could have held out on this birthday ever coming to an end, and thus stopped time!

:D

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
