Today I jumped the mailman’s bones when he brought three surprises. Things I love.
1. Barefoot Angie Bee, my favorite Nuun girl, saw the devastation of my water bottles in the dishwasher and sent these. New water bottles and a supply of Nuun tabs! She rocks. I don’t know why I’m laying down with this bottles. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
2. This book, Running on Empty by famed ultra runner Marshall Ulrich, is to be released on April 14, 2011. I was asked by the publisher to read and review. My review will be posted on the day of the book’s release. I will also get to do a Q & A with Marshall Ulrich. Good times. I hope Dean is not jealous. He gets that way sometimes about me. Very possessive. Kind of like me in this picture. Possessed.
I’ve been in a bad mood all day today about my hair. Now you know why. I need a cut, a style or a full head shave. I always think of that Timbuk 3 song from 1990 that said, “Hairstyles and attitudes, are they connected?” I used to LOVE this band. Then what happened to them? They must be hanging out with those people who sang Video Killed the Radio Star. Here’s another good one from them:
Lots of you may be too young to remember these guys. You should be old like me. I say, well, yes, hairstyles and attitudes are connected. Bad hair = bad attitude.
3. New Athleta catalog arrived. Making my wish list for when my next “allotment” comes in. I love you Athleta. I also love Emma and her open mouth. And the fact that I look like a dog about to take a leak.
So, despite the fact that I did taxes today, got yelled at by my massage therapist for being resistant and “not in my body” (whatever that means), hate my hair, hate fourth grade girl drama, and was accused by Ken of using his nose hair clipper (for what dude? oh yea I did use it on my pubes. sorry) it’s been an overall pretty damn good day. And I got in a five mile run. Did you hear that? I am running. Regularly. Almost pain free.
Does your hair affect your attitude?
Do you do yoga moves in your jeans?
Does your dishwasher melt things?
Do your kids have friend drama?
Do you make your kids take pictures of you for your blog?
What’s your favorite song from the 90s?
Does it annoy you when bloggers ask questions?
Off to watch Survivor,
