random friday facts

1. Everything goes in the dryer.  Including spandex.  I KNOW.

2. I am having an incredibly difficult time typing/spelling this morning.

3. I always get up to pee once in the night and can go straight back to sleep.  If I get up twice, I'll be up for the rest of the night.

4. I make little piles all over my desk.

5. I can't stand unread emails, but I almost never check Facebook anymore.  The little red numbers used to haunt me, but not anymore!

6. My status is always "Busy" on Google chat.  

7. I went to the bike store yesterday later in the afternoon, after I'd had a work appointment.  One of my bike guys said, "Hey, I think this is the first time I've seen you not looking like a sweaty homeless person!" It made me proud.

8. Sometimes I am afraid to tell people I don't drink coffee.

9. I really like DailyMile, but I really don't like the overwhelming amount of fake "GOOD JOB!" that is there.  Or the people that post the exact same comment on everyone's workout every day.  

10. Graham likes to sleep under my work chair with his butt on my feet.  

11. The only good thing about summer running is that my upper lip isn't chapped all the time and my right shoulder isn't a frozen mass of wiped snot.

12. I take almost all of my showers at the gym.

13. Bad smells drive me crazy.

14. The first car I learned how to drive was stick, and all my cars were stick until 2008.  I miss it, I always felt like a race-car driver.

15. I do not pee in the pool, but sometimes when I push off the wall at the end of a hard effort, I feel like some might leak out, but then I realize by the time I get back, it will have floated away.  

16. I've been cramming a lot of last minute beer drinking in this week.  August 1 is Monday!

17. When I find something funny, I keep repeating it to myself over and over and cracking up.  Good thing I work alone in my basement.

18. I still don't think I know how to cook tofu correctly.  It always falls apart!

19. I often put things on my calendar after doing them, because I like the colored blocks.

20. I usually get the most amount of work done on Friday afternoons because it's very quiet.  

21. I slept for 11 hours last night.  Let's not talk about what time I went to bed to make that happen.

Happy Friday!  Drop me a note if you did a RFF today and I'll add the links throughout the day!

  1. ha, NOTHING goes in my dryer except for sheets and towels.

  2. I add things to my calendar after I do them! The blocks make me feel like I have achieved things... and their pretty!

  3. I don't drink coffe either. I think it smells good but tastes like crap! I also always get up to pee during the night as well. I guess keeping a glass of water by my bed doesn't help. I haven't done laudry since I got married! I have no clue what jason puts in the dryer?

  4. I envy coffee drinkers. They seem to get SO much pleasure from that cup!
    Daily Mile. It wore me out. Mostly because the app sucked so much...I'm rarely on a real computer to actually update it and do all the appropriate high fiving.
    I RFF'd today!

  5. OK, let me just say that we are long lost brother/sister or at least 3rd cousins.

    I put everything in the dryer now as well and typically get told I'm doing it wrong.

    I HATE unread emails and especially on my BlackBerry when I can't go back to find the ones it says I haven't read. I know I read the f'n email.

    I always put things on my calendar after doing them. Gives me a sense of accomplishment.

    The same comments repeatedly tells me Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V were at work and that you weren't reading. Please just leave my status alone if that is the case.

    GOOD JOB on this post.

  6. Ok, tofu explanation.

    Buy the extra firm tofu (that sounds dirty). Wrap it in either a dishtowel or paper towels and press for 20-30 min between two heavy objects. I put a plate on top and then a heavy book on top of the plate.

    Pat dry the tofu at end of 30 min. Cube into small pieces. HIGH HEAT on nonstick pan. Spray with oil. Throw in tofu with spices and let it sit for at LEAST 5 min before you check on if it's browning. Flip and continue to NOT TOUCH IT while it's browning.

    That's about it.


  8. This blog continues to inspire me. So much so, I did my firstest everest Random Friday Facts. What next??

  9. Always my favorite post on Friday :) Just FYI.

    My desk + night-stand is full of little piles. They never get too big, but I think it drives D a little crazy (he's insanely well organized. Gah).

  10. I think 11 hours of sleep is the perfect amount! Now all I can picture is a little cloud of pee floating away . . .

    Time to get cracking on my RFF

  11. I put almost nothing in the dryer and I never go on Facebook (which is why I have never managed to join DailyMile, they seem so similar). My car is stick and I love it!

  12. RFF in the house! Mine are posted!

  13. I love 11 hour sleep days... but I'm much more likely to go to bed a 1am and sleep until noon.

    My RFF are posted too.

  14. Ahh I wish I had your courage there are so many things that I don't put in the dryer! I feel like I want to sleep for 11 hours tonight so jealous!! Happy Friday!!!

  15. funny how many of your RFF dont seem to random to me, as i share a lot of your randomness! but i think i had a small seizure about your drying everything. i dry hardly anything!

  16. My google status ALWAYS says busy.. Awesome. And GOOD JOB on taking the time to blog this RFF - you should log this time into Daily Mile.. Snort.

  17. What do you mean you don't drink coffee!?!?

    I think I might be guilty of writing the same thing over and over on your daily mile workouts. But it's not fake. I always think/type: You Kick Ass.

  18. I put everything in the dryer too. I prefer to think that I'm not being lazy; I'm just using my time more efficiently.

  19. I don't drink coffee either - but I am proud of it! I'm also envious of that 11 sleep you had - sounds like heaven!

  20. I don't drink coffee either. Can't stand the stuff.

    Your chair must not have wheels. Everytime Bailey tries to lay under my chair I end up rolling over his tail. Poor guy :(

    Love driving my stick. First car was a manual '87 Blazer. Loved that car. I'll drive a stick for as long as I can.

  21. Better to not drink coffee at all then drink too much. during the school year I sometimes go through a pot all by myself haha.

  22. My showers are at the gym too! If I shower once a week at my own house, that is a lot!

  23. I learned to drive on a stick too. Every car except my first has been a stick. I love feeling like a race car driver. :) Not so fun when stuck in DC traffic though. Good thing my commute is short.

  24. This post is hilarious. You are my new favorite blog ha. I will be stalking...uh reading daily. I agree with dailymile. Especially when I say this was a horrible run and they banter back with omg great pace. Um...don't get me started.

  25. I'm with the concensus, I have wet clothes drying all over the house. Everywhere, but the dryer.
