Stolen from Craig and Kara

Here's the game:

Write ten statements, intended to different people.
Never tell which one is to who.
They are things you've always wanted to tell people.

1) I admire you.
2) Where you at? Give a girl a call now and then.
3) I'll see you soon!! Yay!!
4) You make me laugh more than any other person ever in life.
5) You know you're my "PIC"!
6) I wish I could make you feel better.
7) I love you. Even when I don't agree with you.
8) Are you really that happy or is it all a front?
9) It's not always about you.
10)I saw you pick your nose - LOL.

Say It Ain't So!

Can it be true?
Did Cadbury really introduce their new "Ornament Cream Egg?"
Uh huh. That's right. They did.
And for all you naysayers out there who will undoubtedly question the relationship between Christmas and an egg, I say to you - "WHO THE FRICK CARES?" Because anything that gets me extended time with the Cadbury eggs is just fine with me...

Cutest Thing EVER

So last night, I was sitting at home all by my lonesome watching, "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." (Which, incidentally, kicks the crap out of all cartoons today.)
I noticed that Allie seemed interested in the show too, which is bizarre because she is A DOG. But this scene came on where Snoopy was supposed to be a WWII pilot and he was flying his doghouse. Evidently Allie was into it because she literally waddled over to the TV, sat up on her butt, put her nose almost to the screen and followed Snoopy, wherever he went on the screen, with her head.
I so wish I had gotten a picture of that, because she sat there for at least a minute, staring at Snoopy.
So evidently, Snoopy is to dogs what Pre-Angelina Brad Pitt was to girls everywhere.
He's a total rockstar.

Done and Done

I survived my first half marathon.
Actually, I had the best run of my life.
The course had six hills, one of which was located at mile freaking twelve, which was a bummer. I swear, I slowed down to a crawl trying to get up that hill after having already run for almost 2 hours straight.
But I ran the whole thing in 2 hours and 10 minutes, at a 9:58 per mile pace.
So now I have a time to try and beat next time. We'll see how that goes...

So in the past week, I've gotten hits on my blog from people who searched for:

"Courtney Hooters"
"Duck Tail"
"Random Thoughts with OCD"
"80's Sweatbands" and
"Who's that Indian in my Teepee"

All very good, I think.

A Best Friend Is...

That person who just "gets" you - no matter what;
Who laughs at your silly jokes and never has a shortage of funny things to say;
Who calls often and leaves random, but entertaining voice mail messages when you're not there to answer;
Who NEVER, EVER judges you, no matter what (But who will speak her mind when she feels you're in the wrong);
Who sends candy corn themed Halloween cards, calling you the "Queen of Narnia," and telling you how fabulous you are.

Thanks, Shibbie. You're the best :)

I think I can, I think I can

Oh crap.
I just registered for the Koala/Luke's Half Marathon in Houston THIS SUNDAY.
As in six days, Sunday.
Sure, I've been training for awhile. But the race that I'm training for doesn't happen until JANUARY.
As in three months, January.
So I guess this one will be more for fun and for additional training.
Oh crap.
Wish me luck!!
Pray that I don't pass out.

Wow - this has been such a crazy week.
I started off on Sunday by running a 10-mile race that consisted of 1000 runners. The race began at 7 am, and ended 34 songs on my ipod (including "Eye of the Tiger" and "Danger Zone"), 8 cups of water, 3 GU energy shots, 2 blisters on my feet, and 1 hour 40 minutes later. But there's nothing like crossing that finish line with hundreds of people cheering for you. I'm so ready for the next one!

The race alone probably wouldn't have been too bad, but I followed it up with a softball double header that night. You talk about weak legs on Monday morning. I'll do my best NEVER to do that again.

Kevin and I got our Halloween costumes in the mail yesterday. He's the funniest looking Gilligan and I'm the silliest looking Ginger ever in life. But I have a killer purple boa! Who doesn't love that, right?

And I just realized that I only have two weeks to go in Houston. After that, I'll head back to work. And even though I will not at all miss the crazy Houston drivers and all the traffic that results from the crazy Houston drivers, I will really miss the people that I've gotten to know here. Curse my emotional attachment issues!!
I've actually worked in Houston longer than I was officially in Galveston before I got sent off for training. I'm so ready to find my comfort zone. I feel like I've been in limbo since February. And that sucks.

Alright - gotta get to work. Peace out and have a great weekend!!

Dear Weight Watchers:

Just a note to let you know that when you call a meal, "Chicken Marsala," and then provide no chicken for the marsala, it's false advertisement.
You owe me 5.5 chunks of chicken.

Snakes are the Devil!!

My dog, Allie, has recently discovered that it's fun to play with snakes (grass snakes, thank goodness). This week alone, I've caught her on three separate occasions, rolling on top of one, nudging it with her nose, pawing at it.
Now see, most people would probably note the fact that it's just a grass snake, comment on how cute it is that puppy plays with it, and move on. Not me.
Because grass snake or not, it's still a snake. A slimy, creepy, evil snake. Snakes are the devil - sans pitchfork, but with fangs so it all evens out...
So you can imagine what my reaction was when Allie put a snake INTO HER MOUTH and tried to bring it to me while I was sitting on the patio yesterday.
I'd love to know what the neighbors were thinking as I was screaming, "NO - PUT IT DOWN! DON'T BRING THAT OVER HERE!!"
I've got to get over my fear of the grass snake.

For Karen

Thought for the day:
"A true friend is one who wishes E.Coli on your enemies."

Thank goodness for true friends :)

Wednesday, October 03, 2007's ON!

I just bought our halloween costumes for this year!
They should be pretty interesting...will post pictures after the upcoming halloween parties!!
What is it about dressing up that makes halloween so much fun?
The parties, the dancing, the cooler weather, seeing everybody dressed up and acting silly, stocking up on candy and seeing the kiddos get so excited about trick-or-treating...This is one of my favorite times of the year (next to Christmas, of course :)
I'll probably get even more excited if the temperatures EVER drop below 90 here. Seriously, someone should inform mother nature that IT'S FALL already!!
