random friday facts

1. My allergies are so bad right now, I would happily claw my eyeballs out with toothpicks to make that feeling go away.  Oh, and I'd like my voice back, Darth, but it was fun to trade for a while.

2. The sound of a ringing cell phone annoys me.  Especially if it's my own.

3. If you are over 300lbs and your midriff is showing at the gym, I'm going to judge you.  I mean, I'm pumped that you are motivated, but I'm still going to judge you every time.

4. When I lived in Boston for a year, I did not go watch the marathon.  

5. I still don't know how to correctly chop an onion.

6. I listen to music while I ride my bike.  I KNOW.

7. I didn't like beer until a few years ago.

8. I have cellulite on the backs of my legs.  It's why I never wear shorts or skirts.  I spend most summers in capris.

10. I am unable to blow my nose without making a really loud noise.

11. I still eat ice cream every night before I go to bed.

16. Sometimes I wish someone would steal my car so I could get the insurance money.

19. I sleep on my stomach.

Day 14: 23.2 solid miles.


  1. I'm with you 100% on #3 and #11.
    I can show you #5.
    And, the miles, oh the miles! You. Effing. Rock!

  2. Ooh, I've missed your random fact fridays! Definitely with you on #17. Hell is other people.

  3. I'm with you on number 18. We should form a club. Have you tried a neti-pot? It's gross, but it flushes all the pollen out of your sinuses, which makes allergy season so much better.

  4. Hillarious! Yes, capris are becoming my new bff and cell phone rings are right up there with the sound of the alarm in the morning!

  5. I'm the same way with #10. I sound like a fog horn.

  6. High five! Loud nose blowers unite. I think I got it from my dad. I'm also a loud sneezer. It's really sexy.

  7. YES! #1, #18, #12-I dropped my diamond earring on the floor of our bedroom 2 weeks ago and still can't find it and I'm forbidding anyone to vacuum until it's found! (Yup and I'm squeezing dog poop bags until I find it!).

    I used to LOVE sleeping on my stomach, but the chiro said that is how I got the pinched nerve in my neck. I just don't sleep as well on my back or side.

    I hate the grocery store.

  8. I live with a foghorn nose-blower yet did notice that honking sound last night. In camp #18 with you -- I don't want children so I'd probably be a bad mother 'cause I'd be so pissed off I was stuck with them.

  9. I fully support your approach to ice cream consumption.

  10. LOL at #8. I've totally gotten over that and wear them anyways. I hate being hot and capris make me hot in the summer.

    Sounds like someone finally introduced you to a beer worth drinking. ;o) We'll be at Mad Fox this evening if you'd like to join us for dinner again. ;o)

  11. For some reason I have not been eating much ice cream recently. (And didn't even realize until I read #11) I'm not sure why I fell off the bandwagon, must get back on quickly!

  12. We have so much in common it is ridiculous!!!!

    See you soon!!!

  13. UGH I don't like shorts either...I am trying to come back around to them, but whole whole ginormous leg situation I have going on now is NOT cool! SEE YOU SOON!!! ps Please bring your puppy in your carry on ;)

  14. D wants a Dyson SO bad - every time the commercial comes on he comments on this. We saw the fancy ones at Best Buy a few weeks ago and I honestly thought he was going to throw down $400 on a vacuum cleaner. Scary.

    I haaate going to the bank and post office. I'm SO terrible about mailing things, it's pathetic.

  15. I missed this yesterday. I might agree with everything on this list, especially the part about people. Hope you're having fun in Boston!

  16. I hate when my cell phone rings too. It usually means work is calling me. Allergies suck! Ice-cream and I are friends, but I limited it to once or twice a week.

  17. Hey, really great blog post… I've enjoyed reading through your blog because of the great style and energy you put into each post. I actually run AceHealth.org, a blog of my personal research and experiences. If you're interested, I would love to have you on as a guest blogger. Please send me an e-mail: bob.mauer65(at)gmail(dot)com, and I can give you more information. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  18. For me it's an ice cream sandwich each night.

    Loved meeting you today. I see you on Emily's blog all the time and it was nice to see you in person. Congrats on the pain free run!

  19. Hi Katie,
    I read your allergy comments on CNN. I have a remedy that works for me and may help you. I am not making money promoting this product. I tried taking Healthy Veins Tonic by Herb Pharm after my last son was born to help with spider veins, a side effect of pregnancy. It contains Butcher's Broom, a venous constrictor. (It's not something people with high blood pressure should take.) I don't have HBP. While taking it, I noticed I didn't have the allergic reaction any more. It must stop the blood vessels from engorging in my nose and throat. I had friends try it for allergies and say it worked for them too. It's a lot cheaper than antihistamines. For me antihistamines didn't work after a few days and made my head feel swimmy. I don't have any side effects on this. You can get Healthy Veins from a good health food store or order it on line. You'll be thanking me. It's worth trying.

  20. The amount you borrow will likely be for any percentage from the value in the car pay day uk brokers have dealings with
    a lot of lenders and they are familiar with various loans.
