Overheard

"Oh my god, I might have swine flu. I just had pork for lunch yesterday!" - Girl talking to lord knows who on a cell phone.

Um, it's not like mad-cow. You can't get it by EATING the pig.

Overheard

While stopped at a light in Downtown Denver yesterday: "All my grandparents were dead by the time I was five."

Well Happy Wednesday to you too.

A Lovely Side Effect

I picked up the sport of running about five months ago. I wish it was as easy as it sounds, but alas, it's not. I unfortunately decided to start running in the winter so it's been hit and miss until the last few months. I'm semi-following a program called Couch 2 5K. It takes people like me who used to only run when chased and turns them into runners. You start out by running for a minute, walking for a minute and a half on and off for 30 minutes.

Slowly, I've worked my way up to running for a solid 2 1/2 minutes; emphasis on slowly. I'm pretty sure an old lady was laughing at me yesterday for how slow I go. But right now it's not about speed, it's about endurance so I think I'm doing pretty well. If you think jogging for 2 1/2 minutes w/o stopping sounds easy, try it.

A wonderful side effect from running so much is I'm constantly starving. Not just starving; famished! I was so hungry on my way home from work yesterday I could've pulled my arm off an eaten it. Lovely, I know.

But a fun side note about running, i get to buy a bunch of stuff! For instance, my Saucony Grid Ignition running shoes. Not only are they stylin', they're so comfortable it's like running on green and white clouds :)

Loves them!

Overheard

As I was exiting the elevator in my building, I heard one man say to another, "She was, hands down, the hottest shoe-shine girl in Manhattan."

Awesome.

Ah, Colorado



Glorious Colorado. If you live here, you know how abruptly the weather can change. I needed the following items in the last three days: shorts, tank top, flip-flops, sunglasses, rain coat, rain boots, gloves, winter jacket, hat, snow boots.

Three days ago it was beautiful, hot and 70. Yesterday it poured rain and today it's a blizzard dumping a possible 6-16 inches.

Ah, Colorado.

Book Love

I fell in love last night...with a library. That's right! Fort Collins opened a brand new library and it's beautiful. It has large, plastic letters kids can sit and play on, fireplaces, comfy chairs and sofas, study rooms, tons of windows, and the smell of new books!

Plus it's closer to my house so what's not to love? They have a smaller selection than the other libraries but I can still have my books sent to that one. Part of me wishes I had some homework so I could take it there and study; but then I realize that I have a full-time job and money to pay for things so that feeling goes away rather quickly :)

We're Going To......

Kansas City! Wa, wa, wa...I know; not exactly the most exciting place on Earth but it was good enough for Dorothy!

The hubs and I are going to Phoenix at the end of May but decided we needed a quick get-a-way to tide us over for two more grueling months. Kansas City is only 8 hours away and it just happens to be Opening Weekend for the Royals. Coincidence? I think not.

So we're taking a four-day weekend over Easter and driving our butts to Kansas City. But first, we are going to Opening Day at Coors Field. I'm a little torn about this for several reasons:

1) I'm so happy it's finally baseball season again!
2) I've never been to Opening Day and it's something every baseball fan should do.
3) Opening Day is chocked FULL of non-baseball fans. Opening Day is ripe for bandwagon fans and people just looking for the thrill of saying they went to Opening Day; this is the reason why tickets for Friday are basically sold out but Saturday is wide opened. Oh well :)
