Life's not fair

Sorry, kids, you have to wait another day for my giveaway. I'm just mean like that.

No, not really. My computer (I use my work laptop for just about everything, including blogging) took a dump on my day this morning. It's currently in the magical land beyond the rainbow where all broken computers go to get fixed. I'm currently on my "old" computer (which was replaced back in January and has been sitting around here for 8 months. I asked if I could buy it to have as my home computer, instead of having it go wherever they take old electronics to die, but was denied. They'd rather it just sit and collect dust in a storage room somewhere. Makes sense, right?) and I'm hating it.

I'd be way more bummed than I am, except that today is my best friend's third wedding anniversary and, since her husband is working tonight, she asked if I wanted to have dinner and get pedicures with her. Uhm...YES! Oh, she is also 8.9999 months pregnant, and you just don't say no to a woman in that state.

This has nothing to do with anything except it's kinda funny.

I'm a little concerned about the condition that my feet are in. Ok, truth be told, I'm not so much concerned as I am...embarrassed? No, that's not the word. Hmm...I feel sorry for the poor soul who has to try and make these puppies look decent. Yeah, that's exactly what I'm feeling.

Running, while addicting and awesome, does not give you pretty piggies.

I'm pretty sure they make running shoes so detailed to detract from what's inside.

This weekend, since it was a bit chilly out, I wore a pair of my older running shoes to run errands in instead of my flip flops. As soon as I put my foot into one, I could tell they were way too narrow for me for. And I'd been wearing that brand for...uhh...how many years?? By the time I got home, my foot was throbbing in pain. This is when I decided I'm recycling all of my older shoes (most are completely worn our anyway) and buying a cheap (older style) pair of Brooks neutral running shoes for non-running activities. I got a great deal, and guess what color they are.

 Last pair in my size! It was totally meant to be.

I'm totally looking forward to the calf massage. My calves are still on fire and I'm not sure what from. Running hills? But I'd imagine my thighs would be hurting if that were the case. Anywho, it should make for a fun story.

And now, I will promise you, giveaway tomorrow! Get excited! :)


  1. That pg picture terrifies me. Pregnancy is gross.

    I actually do apologize to the pedicure people when I get them. I've actually lucked out and had one who was a runner and she totally understood.

  2. I agree with Kari that pregnancy is gross. Crap. And if her water breaks in the foot spa, I will laugh hysterically. I have a pathological fear of pregnant women going in to labor around me because I panic easily. Anyways, have fun!

  3. Man, I'd pay money for just the calf massage, but I can't get a pedicure until after JFK. I need those callouses!

  4. Hope you have a great time while you're out tonight! Enjoy it :)
