This and That

It’s been over a month since I updated this blog because frankly, I can’t imagine you care and aren’t we all too busy on FaceCrack and (for some of you but not me so much) Twitter?  Blogging is so last year!  But I think of you internet people and I think of stuff to write all the time and you can count your blessings that I almost never do because mostly it’s the aimless, useless ranting of someone in cranky pants.  But mostly things are great so here’s an update.

1).  I was tagged by Juls with the Sunshine Blogger award

I’m supposed to tag 10 other people and tell them that I did that. Only problem is I’m kind of out of the blogging loop so I’m tagging you all and thanking Julie for thinking of me.  Here are the rules:

  • Add the logo to your blog
  • Pass the “Sunshine Award” to 10 bloggers
    • Link to your nominees within your blog post
    • Let them know by commenting on their blog

I’m sorry I’m not doing a better job of playing along but at least getting this award prompted me to create a post and that’s  something, right?

2).  My friend Cindy won the swag for the not-an-internet raffle.  I made a spreadsheet and had as many lines for each person as they got based on their contribution level.  Then I used a random number generator and it gave me a number and the person whose name was on that line won.  And that was Cindy which made me very happy and it made her happy, too!

3).  I got a job.  A real job. The kind that pays a salary and has benefits and stuff.  Very excited about that.  I will start on March 8.

4).  Oceanside is in 28 days.  Holy Hell.  I’ve been benched since the end of December on and off so the training has been sporadic at best.  It’s an ITB problem and it’s getting better but, as anyone who has had one of these issues knows – it’s an on-going battle.  PT, foam roller, ice, ibuprofen and rest.  I’m doing it all.  The PT told me that I can’t inflict permanent damage by training through it (and he said most triathletes do) so I’m going to train with pain and treat it after and just do what I can do.

5). I love Chipotle.  Really love it.  My new favorite dish is the chicken burrito bowl with 1/2 the rice, black beans, pico de gallo, hot sauce, guac, cheese and lettuce.  That’s about 690 calories and Jimmy Crack Corn and I don’t care.  Delicious!

6). Did I mention that Oceanside is in 28 days and I’m not ready? I guess I did.  Oh well – it will be what it will be.

7).  I am so ready for the Olympics to be done.  Fie on you NBC for not airing stuff until 8 PM.  Could you not have started at 6:00 so you got your prime time slot but so we could have gotten to bed at a decent hour?  My god.  I know 6-8 is news stuff but I think most people would have been happy with greatly compressed news during this important time of obsession with sports about which we know almost nothing.  I mean come on!

8). It’s starting to be light out until 6:00!! At the end of March when we change the clocks life will be bliss again. Can’t wait!

There was more… oh so much more.  And now I’ve forgotten and that’s okay.  I’m sure you have better things to do than read this.

    HUGE CONGRATS on the JOB! You must be so happy.
    HUGE BOO on the ITB injury.

    It’s nice to see you blogging — if only for this post. I hope you’ll give us more as time allows. I miss your writing style. FB status updates and Twitter tweets just don’t provide this.

    HUGE congrats on the job! I’m so pleased for you.

    And I was so happy to see your post pop up in google reader. hoooray!

    Having not yet joined FaceCrack, I miss hearing what the interesting folks who used to blog have to say about their lives. I’m very glad to see see even an infrequent post. Clearly I’m missing things.

    Mucho luck to you at Oceanside! Crazy lady 🙂

    Fantastic news about the new job!

    I’m really disappointed in NBC too. For once, the time zone is on our side and yet we still get the effin’ tape-delay. Lame.

    Crazy what is erupting on the UCSD campus this week, isn’t it? (And, I’m assuming your daughter wasn’t part of the “Compton Cookout,” television program or noose prank that fueled the protests.)

    Congrats on the job but please don’t forget the blogsphere because you have to work now!
    No facebook here, I did it but after one day I deleted my name: too many people and I cannot pay attention to that “game” as I should.

    Hot diggity dang, congratulations on the new job!!!!

    So glad the Olympics is over, too. Won’t hijack your blog with my rant, but GAH!!!!!

    look at you, a new blog post, and oh yeah, new JOB! woot!

    At least you still got things to say on your blog! I am all washed up.

    And I missed the entire olympics.

    Boo on ITB.

    but how are you going to play with me if you have a real job and do stuff all day?

    I think the clocks actually change on March 14- not the END of the month! YAY!
