Work craziness (that is the cleaned up version of what I call it!) should soon be over.
There will still be craziness, but it will not send me over the edge repeatedly like it has for the last 4 months.
I've missed all my SP friends and have been a very bad group leader. But looking on the bright side, I'm also still employed.
It has been a long road, but I'm looking forward to spending more time on the site and harassing my friends as in the days of yore.
I'm also looking forward to having a cleaner house!

And getting more wogging in. I must break 4 hours on my 1/2 marathons. Far too many of them out there consider that to be too slow.

I hope all of my friends had a lovely close of 2013 and here is to a fantastic 2014!!

Fears were completely unfounded!

Friday, December 13, 2013

The event at the Seattle Aquarium was lovely!

It is always heart warming to find out some artist/singer/writer that you like is a lovely person as well. I'm always afraid they are going to be a know...

But all of that was unnecessary.

The Oatmeal was funny and doodled in my book while we chatted about running. I'll have to get a new picture of it when I get home. Some of the swag they gave me in the picture I have might be a bit too R rated for here.

For those that are in the Seattle area or like him enough to come on over (out? down? up?) he is trying to work out a Blerch 5k/10k/half marathon. You know I will sign up for that!

If you missed what the Blerch is check out this link.

And the people watching! That was worth the price of admission alone!

But now it is back to work. emoticon And I get to come back tomorrow. emoticon

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

The Oatmeal at Seattle Aquarium

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

I know that the webcomic The Oatmeal isn't to everyone's taste, but his bit on running and the Blerch is so spot on!

His interview in Runner's World was silly as well.

I have made writing "I believe in the Blerch" on the inside of my arm part of my pre-race ritual. I wish I could draw the Blerch. Seems like it should be simple, but I have no skills in such things.

He and another webcomic are going to be at the Seattle Aquarium tonight for a small gathering for a talk, watch the animals and signings/doodlings.

Guess has two thumbs and has tickets to go?? This girl!

I've been stressed with work again (or is that still??) that this is worth staying up past my bedtime!

    Ok, so let's blame this on my age...but I thought you were talking about eating oatmeal in a cafeteria at the Aquarium and kind of wondered why on earth you would blog about that....and wow, I had my own personal blerch long before you and the webcomic were even born. He is so right about that sweet little insidious comfort being that wants us to stay home and eat gravy (or in my case. ice cream). Thanks much for sharing this!
Good to know too that I can just keep making oatmeal at home, instead of feeling I need to travel to Seattle for the best...

Quadzuki disappointment

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

I only managed to do the first 1/2 marathon on Thanksgiving Day.

The next 3 mornings I woke up with a splitting headache and feeling general yuckiness.

After visiting the doctor yesterday I found out I had an ear infection. All the hand washing and avoiding sick people couldn't keep that away.

I was pretty down about the whole thing, but have since gotten over it. I was sick. No way I should have been out in the yucky weather feeling like it did.

I'm still a bit bummed, but this just lights a fire under me to be ready to do it next year!

    Feel better. It would have been a huge mistake to run with that ear infection. Good job taking care of yourself.
