Friday's Thursday post...

yea... it's like that.  Yesterday I started to write a post...  instead I spent the day researching legal euthanasia in the netherlands for my ethics paper... so... here's my post, plus a few other thoughts...


1. Now that I’ve gone, and now that I’m back, I can say with conviction…  Vegas is not my cup of tea.  Vegas is like a slice of imitation cheese wrapped in plastic.  It looks like cheese, sort of, but it’s fake, and I don’t think there’s really any milk in that stuff…  so Vegas is fun, but it’s more like the “idea” of fun…  like the idea of cheese…

2. This week Pixie Green (PG) came down to The Glen for a business meeting.  It was too fabulous for words.  She is funny, and fun, and we had a great time at dinner, and then the next day on an early morning run.  Once a while back I had raved about sushi on my facebook wall, and PG mentioned always wanting to try it, but…  So, I decided that if we ever got together, we would go for Sushi, and I would bring her over to the “dark side”.   And I did, she loved it.

3. My level of exhaustion is palatable.  I can taste it in the food I eat, the air I breathe and the run I savor.   School is completely crushing my spirit, requiring me to wear brighter socks, more pink and lime, and generally do everything in my power to keep myself going.  I would never recommend a mid-semester trip to Vegas the week of class registration.  Just saying.

4.    Oh, one other small and nearly insignificant detail...  I signed up for this little race called the Richmond Marathon, and plan on training (again) with the Sports Backers MTT...  Can June just get here already so I can RUN MTT?

I'd have to completely agree with your assessment of Vegas. We went there once for a wedding and have zero need to ever go back.

Hang in there! Hope things get a bit easier after you survive this semester. Will you be taking summer classes?

I'm so excited you signed up for the Richmond marathon! For some reason it makes me happy when people sign up for marathons, just as happy as I am when I sign up. :)

Good luck with the end of the semester. June will be here before you know it and you'll be training again!

The idea of cheese ... yummy

Vegas looked cool in that one movie!

I wish I could send you some energy... but I LOVE the idea of you wearing more pink and lime!!!!

I cannot wait to see you at Richmond (if not before)! Maybe Bob will drop out and you can get me to a PR! Anything has got to be better than a 5:04, right?

This sounds weird, but... I LOVE sushi. Just not the kind with fish in it. lol I don't eat fish, but I went to a Japanese joint once and saw that they had vegetarian sushi. LOVED it. And that wasabi sauce they give you with it. WHOA! THAT's some potent stuff!

You traveled so far to Vegas...It's only a couple of hours from Eugene and I still think it's only worth a night or two to stay there. My husband doesn't ever want to go back. We got married there and I still think the piano bar at the NY NY is the most fun ever.

I agree about traveling zapping the energy out of you. I'm ready to start feeling like myself again too!

Yayyy! Can't wait to follow you through another marathon!

You sound like my husband...he is completely hating this semester! The other night i caught him awake talking to his group member at 4 in the morning.

I hope you enjoyed your trip!
