My BFF and I went to the Outlet Mall for a shopping trip today.
I bought lots of awesome new things, but right now, I am exhausted. I will post pics of all of my new things in a few days.
I ate like CRAP today (all fast foods) and my body is telling me it was a horrible idea. I am going to head to bed for now
Hope everyone had a great day!

This has to be one of the greatest videos of all time.
Anyway, I went for a bike ride today. I went 10 minles in the interest of time. It was a little difficult because for the first 5 miles I was riding directly into the wind. The ride home was nice! Not only was the wind pushing me, but it is on a slight downhill grade, so I just kind of sailed along taking in the wonderful weather.
I have to say, I *should* have went to the gym today instead of riding. For me, riding isn't really exercise, but more of something I enjoy doing that just happens to be exercise. Does that make sense? I find myself ditching the gym a lot in the summer so I can ride.
I rode 10 miles today and Fitbit tracked 1,000 steps... seriously? I am going to try putting my Fitbit somewhere else. I don't think that is very accurate?
i am in a bind of what to get my mother for Mother's day... I am thinking of getting her a Pandora bracelet. That way, I can add charms, she can add charms and so on.There is Charmed Memories too. I think that would be a good gift. I am tired of getting her the same thing every birthday and mother's day. She has too many candles, tarts, books... perfume, body lotion, clothes...she has a lot of jewerly too, but I think this might be kind of special? Dad can add to it too.
I don't really have a lot to talk about....

I am amazed at how snotty and snide people that work in the fast food industry are.
Sunday, I went to Subway for lunch. My order, while a little off the wall isn't complicated. I always get...
6 inch club
wheat bread (scooped out)
Spinach, tomato, onion, pickles and oregano
Red wine vinegar on the side.
My co-worker always gets a Chicken Bacon Ranch. She doesn't like the dressing slopped on. I said to the girl "one thin line of ranch" she looked at me, and globed it on.
It seems like they don't listen! They are in such a hurry, they don't listen. It isn't like I am rude. I always ask nicely.
On Monday I went to Chipotle, and it was the same thing! They don't listen to me! I ordered a burrito bowl, and she puts a tortilla in the steamer... when I said "No, I want a burrito bowl" she got huffy with me! She asked me what kind of rice I wanted, and I said, no thanks, no rice. She just looked at me? I added black beans, steak, a double scoop of fresh mild salsa, a scoop of corn salsa, and cheese. I asked for a small amount of cheese, and I swear she put twice as much as normal on it!!
I realize their job isn't fun, but seriously.
I am looking for a second job, and I am thinking about applying at Subway. I promise that if I do I will listen to people and take some pride in my work.
Next item... my grandmother. I love my grandmother, and I realize how fortunate I am to have her. I wish though she would have a little more faith in me. I posted the Map and obstacle list for Mud on the Mountain today on my facebook page and she says...
"Corty how in the world are you going to do all that?"
and I said
"Because I am tough and I am determined"
she is worrying herself sick about me doing this race. She is also the same grandmother that wouldn't let me walk in the woods because I would get "jiggers" (when I spent most of my time at home playing and walking in the woods) I wasn't allowed to run around outside because I was going to get "over heated" (WTH is that anyway? Like seriously? My chubby butt needed to be outside running!!)
Even now she yells at me for "over doing it" because I have been working out a lot to prepare for my race. Trust me, I am not overdoing anything! I push myself, of course I do, I like to push my body! I like how it feels, but I know how far to push it!
anyway, that is all I have to say about that for now

After five years of being together, my boyfriend finally whined enough that I went with him to the Circus.
I am not a fan of the circus. I really disapprove of ALL circuses. It is a hold over from my vegan/vegetarian days. You can read more about it here
(I would like to note, that I think PETA is a bunch of loons, but this does offer pretty good information)
It just hurts my heart to see some of the most majestic creatures on earth forced to perform silly acts for people. It hurts me to see them caged, abused and mistreated.
So, we went to the circus. When they brought the Tigers out in too small cages, some of them stir crazy and turning in circles, peopled ohhhh'es and ahhhh'ed... and I had tears in my eyes because my heart hurt for them. While the kids lined up for Elephant rides, I cried because my heart ached for them.
A lot of the other acts were pretty neat, but were overshadowed by the overwhelming sense of sadness I felt for the animals. I don't think I will be going back
