random friday facts

I know, I know, I created this mindless internet meme and then ignored it for a month. I suck a fatty.


1. I'm afraid of most of the popular healthy-living-blogger foods.  Grill me up a cheese sandwich and get the hell outta here with your strange little seeds and stinky plants.  I eat tofu, that should be enough.


2. I will plant a flag in the ground and firmly declare that I will NEVER wear a running skirt.


3. I like the idea of farmer's markets a lot but can never get my act together enough to actually go to one while they are open.


4. The Puppy Cupcake Palace is at capacity for the next few months.  I'm pretty excited.


5. I am a semi-mature (snort) responsible organized competent woman.  Whenever anything goes wrong with my car, I immediately call my dad.  


6. I've basically been sitting on my couch reading trashy historical fiction (I'm looking at you, Diana Gabaldon) and eating bonbons for the past 2 weeks, with a side of lots of easy miles.  I don't see a problem with that.


7. I really hate touch-typing.  I miss my little flip phone.


8. I absolutely refuse to turn on the heat in the same month the air conditioning is running.


9. Statues made of giant body parts creep me out.  Ditto on phones, coasters, pillows, etc.  I don't want to talk on the phone with a giant lip.


10. I've replaced my nightly ice cream with nightly hot tea.  


11. I would really like to learn how to properly: fire a gun, hem curtains, use my borrowed-fancy-camera.  


12. I have never lost a toenail due to running.


13. On Halloween, I pull the shades and turn off all the lights.  I know, I'm so cranky.  YOU KIDS GET OFF MY LAWN.


I know this was a short one, but I ran over 14 miles this morning and now my redheads are starting to roll in, so I'm off to the weekend races!  If you RFF'd, drop me a comment and let me know so I can link you since I probably won't touch my reader until Monday.  Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!

  1. Funny. I'm the same way on Halloween but feel guilty about it so I buy the candy (maybe that's an excuse to eat it all myself), turn on the light for 5 min. turn it off. Feel bad, turn the light on... It's such an exhausting night for me! :)

  2. Flip phones! If I could read email on mine I'd never get rid of it.

  7. Yes to the no running skirts. I guess if others really want to wear them they can, but I just don't get it.

    I don't wear skirts or dresses when I'm NOT running. Why would I wear them while running?

  8. I'm all about the nightly hot tea lately! I also don't participate for Halloween but last year I was forced to because that is my husbands birthday! Have fun!

  9. "strange little seeds and stinky plants". YOU TELL 'EM! Somebody should.

    #3 - Happens all the time. When I do go, I am all kinds of excited (mostly because there are delicious samples and the food is very photogenic and cute - don't hate), and always find something worth buying.

    They still make Bon-Bons?!

  10. Same on 1, 3, 5, 6, 8 & 12, except sci-fi tv instead of historical fiction, and I do have one suspect toenail that isn't looking so good these days....

  11. i shall plant my flag right next to yours because I will never wear a running skirt. The only thing worse then a running skirt is a BIKING skirt! woof.

  12. I know a farmers market in Bloomington that is open for the next few weekends... Just sayin'.

    Also, "Like" Diana Gabaldon on facebook and get quotations from her upcoming stories in your feed. UH MAZING.

  13. I will never wear a running skirt either. Promise.

  14. I have never lost a toenail either.... (*knock on wood* don't want to jinx MCM).
    I bought candy to pass out this year so the plan is to turn the light on but we'll see how that goes.

  19. There is always a kilt. You could go totally commando. That is very in right now and feels airy and light.

  20. I tried on a running skirt at the store yesterday just to see what everyone was talking about, looked in the mirror and exclaimed, what are these people thinking?!

    RFF done

  21. I love running skirts - super comfortable which I love. Funny seeing you yesterday. I never see anyone I "know" in Vermont. Good job getting - did you say 14 - miles in.

    ReplyDelete
  22. i think you have to give running skirts a shot, what could it hurt?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh my gosh! I can identify with so many of those. I have never lost a toenail or had a blister from running. I can't stand Halloween and wish the stupid kids would leave me alone. And I will NEVER wear a running skirt and have never worn running capri tights either.

  24. When you hear someone banging on your door tonight, screaming, "GIVE ME CANDY, DAMMIT!" That's me. You better open. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lol. I am the same about the Farmer's Markets. Love the idea, but can't seem to find the time to figure out how to get there in time. Ditto on calling my Dad to help with my car and thinking crazy super health foods are weird.

  26. 11. I can teach you to hem.
    12. Me neither.
    13. We totally hide on Halloween. Yesterday I had the built-in real excuse of being on a plane, so I'm better than you just being a curmudgeon :)

  27. #2 YES. And by yes, I mean NO WAY.
    #11 I can help you with that.
