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*

Oct 15 Mostly Cloudy

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!
Oct. 9th, 2006 05:05 pm (UTC)
Oh, I don't care if they're slapping polish on stumps, I'm getting a pedicure, baby.

And my life back.

It's not great, but it's about 10 degrees cooler than it was, plus the humidity. I'm just bummed because when I looked last night the forecast was 58/79 which would have been PERFECT.
Oct. 9th, 2006 05:17 pm (UTC)
Hahahaha, SAME HERE. I will be courteous and wash my feet beforehand, because even I am not so cruel.

And yeah, that 58/79 is a DREAM. A dream. I'll be wishing on a star for Canada to spit a cold front your way by Thursday night.

Please, please, please oh friendly neighbor to the north... Please!
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:42 pm (UTC)
Also, prescription deoderant? I've never even heard of such a thing.

Mind you, I'll probably need it this weekend, but still!
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:53 pm (UTC)
YES! And I've discovered that you can buy it for about 5 bucks (instead of my 10 bucks at Walgreens) at the grocery store - 'tis the same thing. CERTAIN DRI. It's a gross roll on, but you put it on at night before you sleep! It shrinks your pores so no moisture (and as aresult, no odor) comes out of your pits. I walked 14 miles today with DRY ARMPITS. *coats self* Dude. It WORKS, I tells ya.

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. :)


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.


*shakes out pompoms and digs through attic for flippy skirt*

You go, darlin!!
Oct. 9th, 2006 05:57 pm (UTC)
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?

Oct. 9th, 2006 06:16 pm (UTC)
Go go get 'em, get 'em and when you got 'em give 'em...oooooh ahhhhhh...

God, in retrospect that is SO slashy. I was so before my time.

So Vincent is a rentboy working the streets in the big city after running away from home (trailer park) and doing pretty good, thinks so anyway...still up for a beta if I can get this thing tamed?
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:24 pm (UTC)
Vincent porn? YES, PLEASE. My porn button is broken, so reading some would be Eeeeeeexcellent. [/Mr. Burns] Whenever, where ever.
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:41 pm (UTC)
As soon as I can wrestle it into submission - so far it seems to have ended up Vincent/Sean Maher with James, Adam, Seth and there are references to teen bully David. Uh..yeah...but there is porn!
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:51 pm (UTC)
Just point me to a prequel for continuity (if needed) and send it on, yo! I'm all for reading some Vinnie, yes indeedy!
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:21 pm (UTC)
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.
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:26 pm (UTC)
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??
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:30 pm (UTC)
Good god, people are freaking scary sometimes.

Now, I can't figure out what Puddin'-n-Tame means. I've decided it's Scottish, though!
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:35 pm (UTC)
Hee!! Did you not do the rhyming game:
"What's your name?" "Puddin'-n-tame, ask me again and I'll tell you the same?" And how much do I love that SOMEONE noticed I changed that stuff? (The journal name and subtitle are from the VM season opener, btw.)

:D (And tell me to STOP looking at Petfinder. I can NOT get a puppers until after Thanksgiving, for we will be gone and cannot take a dawgee with us.) Waaaaaaaah. Pups. In CAGES. :(
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:41 pm (UTC)
Oh! No, I don't know that rhyme!

I always notice when your name changes -- I only wish I could remember my own when we were doing that whole group of wives thing. Um. That may make no sense.

Ooooooh, PUPPY! Yes, don't look now, especially if you can't act to adopt one now (some of them will likely be adopted by the time you can really think about it, but that's good for them *crosses fingers*). But PUPPY! I will totally weigh in and listen to dog talk if you want, because I LOFF doggies!
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:50 pm (UTC)
Yes, yes, that is the rhyme! (There is a meaner version, too, "what's your name? Charlie Brown, ask me again, I'll knock you down.)

Oooh, wives thing. YES. I have a memory of that, but alas, I can NOT think of the name. *offers brownie* Was it... Numero Primo?

PUPPY. Oh, doggies. I'm definitely looking for something like a Blue Heeler or shepperd mix, as they have good dispositions, are generally healthy, love their families, and are active. I want a walking/running buddy! Mr. S is going to get a purebred hunting dog this winter, but I need a RESCUE baby. (And they'll need a friend, yes?) #1, they have to do well with kids and cats, so that cuts way back on some shelter pups. *wants them ALL, omg.* I almost got in the car and drove down to the shelter a minute ago... (It's only 2 miles away! I could WALK THERE. And get a friend. NO, STONEY. Be patient.)
Oct. 9th, 2006 06:58 pm (UTC)
Heeeeeeeeeeeeee to your icon! Rawor!

Oh, it's so hard not to adopt EVERYONE when you start looking at those rescue pages! Puppins! And two doggies, they will probably be so happpyyyyy to have the two of them together in your home! *plans doggie parties for them*

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. :)
Oct. 9th, 2006 11:43 pm (UTC)
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!!
Oct. 10th, 2006 12:58 am (UTC)
You've got to have the wicking and the arch support. I've fallen for these socks from the Champion line at target. They're the "no tops", but they're higher in the back, so they don't slide off your heel. Plus wicking and support. Yay!

BodyGlide is the best. I put it on my inner thighs in the summer when I wear dresses so my thighs don't chafe in the heat. Although that's not really an issue here in CO. And if I wear dress shoes without socks/hose? I smear on the BodyGlide and no blisters. Yay!

That game was insane. I was flailing, Stoney. So much internal conflict for me. I love my Eagles, but Bledsoe. Oh, baby.

*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.
Oct. 10th, 2006 02:42 am (UTC)
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!

Oct. 10th, 2006 02:50 am (UTC)
I coulda had a superpower!

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.
