Also - I have goals that I have not yet accomplished because I am a lazy butt. I signed up for a 5k in Sept. w/ my friend Lauren bc I need motivation to run. I need to sign up for a 10k bc I really want to just do it. Then - once I do a 10k, I can do a half marathon, and eventually a marathon. I knew I wanted to run a marathon in JANUARY. What have I been doing? Not training for one. Ugh.
How am I going to get motivated?
1. I signed up for a 'free' personal training session at WOW (WOW = work out world/ my gym). I have to go there on Thurs w/ 5 goals so the trainer can tell me how to get it done. (Then tell me that it will cost me millions of $ to continue working w/ him) *
2. Sign up for runs w/ friends and then force myself to train for it so I'm not embarassed. (9/14 could potentially be embarassing. Sometimes I think I should sleep in my sneakers so I will run in the morning.)
3. Promise my sister I will run the Disneyland Half Marathon in Aug. 09.
4. I joined a group called Twilight Throwers http://twilightthrowers.110mb.com/About%20Us.html I threw Jav and disc in high school and actually miss it, so I'm excited to find a way back in, even if I just missed their 'season' and have to train alone all fall/winter.
5. I posted this on my blog so now I have to stick to it all so I can blog about it, and know that if I don't do it I will feel like a loser for not doing it now that I told everyone what I want to do.
If anyone else has any motivational tools or tips, please share.
Also - does anyone remember that "Get in Shape Girl" cassette tape?
*It is a promotional offer where obviously you sign up for one, fall in love w/ having someone kick your butt into shape and then wish you could afford a trainer.
HOT. And, a great player. (but no longer my fave australian.) Sadly - he is injured this year.
Now I'm all nostalgic and missing footy games.
**sorry Shannon - I can only root for the Crows if they aren't playing the Dockers.

oh. my. god. the mens 4x100 relay team dropped the baton.
Come to find out... so did the women's team. What happened?? I feel bad for them, because I cannot imagine how much that must suck.
I was at a bar having a drink w/ a friend when the men's race was on TV. Literally 10 people around the TV all said (at the same time, when he dropped it..) Oh. My. God.

The Dave Matthews Band's saxophonist LeRoi Moore has passed away. He was 46 years young. He was injured in an ATV accident in June, resulting in a punctured lung and broken ribs. Moore went back into the hospital last month due to complications. He passed away Tuesday in Los Angeles after more complications.
I haven't really been that into Dave Matthews Band in the past few years, but they were one of the first bands that I was truly crazy in love with. I think I saw them 10x's! I am sad for them.
Sad that girls do this to each other, and that my life can be related to a "reality" show. Damn it. I knew I should have written a book about that.

I love his new song though. (and isn't he sort of cute?)
[I think I like the live version better:]
I am a sucker for sappy songs. This song is sweet, or god awful considering where you are in life. If you are in a breakup, or single w/ no prospects - this song might suck to hear. If you are in 'like' where everything is fluttery feelings and sweet, then this song is probably on repeat. If you are happy in a relationship, maybe it makes you stop nitpicking on those little things you fight about and let the other person know you appreciate them and tell them how much you love them. Or, if you are single, with ridiculous/complicated, non-relationships and you just like the song, you probably posted it on your blog.

Worker A and Worker B are talking about an upcoming meeting.
Worker A : "You said I can't come."
Worker B : "I said you don't have to come, but you can. You can come as a woobie."
Worker A : "As a what?"
Worker B : "As a support person.. ya know, a woobie."
For those of you who don't remember, in the movie, Mr. Mom (1983) one of the sons has a security blanket he calls a woobie.
Trying to get Kenny to give up his security blanket]
Jack Butler(Michael Keaton): I understand that you little guys start out with your woobies and you think they're great... and they are, they are terrific. But pretty soon, a woobie isn't enough. You're out on the street trying to score an electric blanket, or maybe a quilt. And the next thing you know, you're strung out on bedspreads Ken. That's serious.

Good thing his coach noticed that he was Olympic material at age 11.

1. talk with food in their mouth to the point that you can see it, or they are mumbling.
2. suck on hard candy. (or chew ice)
3. answer the phone while eating lunch at their desk - and continue to eat.
The noises of people eating seriously gross me out. I get the same icky feeling when I hear a choice list of words. (most of you know what they are)

I went to the Counting Crows / Maroon 5 concert in Mansfield, MA last night. They switch which band closes each night, and last night it was Maroon 5. It worked out well bc I prefer CC, and left after a few Maroon 5 songs. They were good, but I was happy to miss the traffic!
