I’m calling this Thursday’s Thoughts because I really just want to ramble and I suck at coming up with clever titles. I do have a pretty picture though…
Okay, well, I have prettier ones than that, but that one will have to do. Still, you have to admit, it’s really a different looking flower, special in its own little way.
The highlight of my week at work… the county came to put up “No Parking” signs along our street and jack-hammered right through our phone line. When the county worker was approached about it, he said, “Oops. I probably should have got a dig order before I did that. My bad.” We rescue injured wildlife. No one can get through to us to report an injured animal. “Oops, my bad” just doesn’t cut it. I’m super hoping the director goes medieval on the county.
So, for that reason, I came home and wanted to watch cute animal videos on YouTube to relax. Found tons of them. Probably spent an hour doing that, and then spent lots of time searching for something funny to put on my blog as I get so annoyed with all the doom and gloom of the everyday world and news. So, here you go:
And why is that so funny? Because I’ve totally been there. Maybe I didn’t get a mouse in my mouth, but I have been known to sleep with a few half-eaten lizards. A sign of pure love.
The Lake Sammamish Half-Marathon is a week from Saturday, just in case I haven’t mentioned it enough, ;). This particular race was Jamesy’s very first half-marathon ever in the history of ever. We all know I run for bling. This was James’s “bling” for that very first one:
I kid you not. It’s a cardboard shoe. I think that if they would’ve handed that to me after the race, I would have said, “Yeah, one and done.” But then again, the very first 5K I did, they didn’t hand out any finisher medals at all and gave us one super ugly tech shirt. And that was a difficult course we ran. Hmmm, no wonder it took me awhile to get my run groove.
Just for fun, see if you can solve these brain teasers. They were on the Linked In feed. They’re actually quite fun…
Let me know if you’d like the answers. I might be nice enough to put them in my next post, :D. Not really… put your answer in the comments, and I’ll let you know if you were right or wrong.
I’ve spent the entire week working on video from Hawaii. I’ve finished one from the run streak I did the day before the race. It was fun to do, although I seriously need to work on my editing skills and everything else related to filming and videoing and such. If you want to watch it, it’s here. Not a lot of good scenery footage, but you do get the idea of where I ran every single morning while in Maui (other than on race day).
Anyone got any fun plans this weekend? Hope it’s a great one!!
