Where the hell have I been?

Well, holy crap kabob - it's already Monday! And just where have I been, young lady, you ask? WHERE? For the love of God, why have I not been here to add to the insanity of your day? The truth is that my life has been disproportionally calm compared to the usual daily chaos of yours truly. But I suppose I could entertain with a snippet or two until the next piece of shit hits the fan and I have something fun to post about. So here goes...

LAME SNIPPET 1: Since finally removing my head from the last millennium, I've purchased an MP3 player in order to bring back that "athletic" side of me I once so treasured. I don't know what was worse - not running at all or running with a discman. I've started walking and running again and thanks to technology AM NO LONGER BORED TO TEARS WHILE DOING SO. Now I've got the tunes, but I'm in desperate need of RUNNING SHOE recommendations. For those of you who run or (dear GOD) power walk, what would be your rec? I've always been an Adidas girl, but I've heard some good things from a few marathoners about Asics as well. New Balance does not do anything other than look cute on my feet (which I'd be willing to deal with so long as they were cute enough to detract my HOT neighbor from my fat flapping ass/thighs/oh-hell-anything-from-the-waist-down). Overpronaters, what do you suggest? Comment away!!!

LAME SNIPPET 2: I hate long honkers. I was sitting in position as the second car at a stoplight yesterday. The light changed and it took the car in front of the guy to my left a second to get his foot on the gas. Then, for like 8 hours, the guy to my left was laying on his horn. I think there should be an auto-off switch for people who honk longer than four seconds. Seriously, four seconds is a long honk. Now I like a good honk as much as the next girl, but come on, people. If it's that bad, get out of your car at the next light, walk up to the offender's car, tap on his window, yell F*** YOU, and call it a day.

THE END

Seriously, a discman? You might as well run with a boombox over one shoulder.

I am a pronator and I run in Saucony Grid 4 Trigons. I also like the Nike Air Pegasus. I like a lot of cushion, and those are both pretty cushiony.

Right on to the honking. I used to be horrified by honkers, but now that I've lived in TX for so long I have road rage like everyone else.

just a reminder

Tessie: Totally forgot about Saucony. I'll have to check those out. Thanks for the rec. In TX, I think you need one of those large air horns to be regulation, right?

Bananafana: Glad to see you on the board today. Hey, I don't have to take that painting off the wall to enjoy it, right? Right???

About the hot neighbor: to qiuote a friend of mine "Just because you are on a diet doesn't mean you can't look at the menu!"

mom of the year said...

Kristen: Absolutely! Hope all is well in Chi-town...

I'm just jealous - even if my young male neighbors were smokin', I can't see past the fact that I want to old lady yell at them when they're having keg parties in the back yard. The first time they wake O up I'll be out there in my bathrobe and slippers with my fist in the air . . .

I love asics, but really the best thing is go into a store, have them watch you walk, and see what they recommend...everyone's foot is different.
