Friday Leftovers (May 21)

Friday's fun post... okay, maybe not so much fun, but here it is anyway.

'splainin' : There's a huge promotion going on for a video game called Red Dead Redemption. I have I believe the original, Red Dead Revolver, and that's an awesome game. I just never got to play it enough, or get to play it enough I suppose. And I got to one level that was tough and couldn't get past it so I kind of got frustrated with the game. Salmon... I don't like salmon. At all. Blech.

Mud Runs

I can't believe I have two Mud Runs in the next three Saturdays! Saturday's is a tune-up if you will to Camp Pendleton. It's a 5K and I'm not sure what that course is like or the conditions or anything. All I know is that it will be fun.

The girls are geared up for the race too. Our problem is just figuring out what shoes we want to sacrifice. We can't have Kennedy wear her brand-new white shoes that I bought for the other race, but I think she has a couple of other choices. Their father-in-law promised them he'd buy them some new shoes if they ran the race, so I guess we shouldn't worry too much, but still. My shoe choice? I'm wearing my old, old shoes. They still have some life in them and I don't want to accelerate the life-span of my other two shoes, my new ones (no way) or my other ones (which I still wear on the treadmill).

Anyway, I'm hoping to have pictures up and a report sometime on Saturday so stay tuned for that.

Friday Five

More of Five Question Friday just for kicks.

1. Do you have an iPhone and, if so, how do you get apps and what are your favorites?

I do not have iPhone. I have a BlackBerry Bold and I love it. I don't have apps in the sense that the iPhone has them, but my favorite features on my phone are the web browser (it looks just like the internet on my laptop or desktop), and the music. I have a lot of music on there and it always sounds good.

2. What is your fondest memory of K-3rd grade?
This was a really tough one. I had to think and think because a lot of the first things that came up were not-so-fond memories. I barely remember kindergarten other than my teacher's name was Ms. Scott and she had really long, straight hair. This was 1980 I believe when I started school so it may have been a hairstyle popular with younger women then. I remember her being young. First grade was Mrs. Crowder and second Mrs. Peters. Actually, the second grade was a 2-3 combo and I hated that. Third grade was Mrs. Burrows and I suppose I did okay in all of those classes.

But a fond memory? I played t-ball and little league baseball when I was around that age, and stopped around that age too. Not sure why we stopped but I think my parents just couldn't afford it. But I really did love playing baseball on a team. I wasn't the best player, heck I kind of stunk, but I really had a lot of fun playing baseball. Oh, one fun thing... during a practice I ripped a shot into the gap and rounded first, rounded second and was on my way for a triple when I looked back to see where the ball was and BLAM!! the ball hit me in the eye. I had a nice-looking shiner there for a while, even had to take my team pictures with it.

3. What makes you cringe at the thought of touching?

Throw up. Sometimes our cat is nice and up-chucks for us because he knows how fond I am of that, and I seriously have gagged and nearly hurled myself just because I've thought about having to pick it up. Of course, being a parent, you kind of deal with that from your child, so I've cleaned up my share of those kinds of messes and I think it's just gotten to me. I could describe more in detail exactly what it is about that that makes me have that reaction, but I like you, dear reader, and I want you to think fondly of my blog, so I'll stop there.

4. If you could have any celebrity show up on your doorstep who would it be and why?

I'd have to say Shakira because, well, she's got a great voice, she seems to have a good personal... oh, who am I kidding? She's hot. I'd like to see her up close to see if she's as hot in person as she is on TV and in pictures.

5. What would you say is your best physical feature?

I like my legs. I've always thought that was my best feature but since I've been running, they've got muscles and stuff. They're nice and tan too.


Alright, that's all I got today. Have a good one!

Wanted to pop in and say good luck tomorrow!

Lisa said...

Good luck this weekend. Very cool the girls are doing the mud run too! You could always go to Goodwill for some shoes for the girls to wear.

Awww, we're phone twins :)
And, I like my legs, too - I think it comes with the territory of being a runner.
Have a great weekend, and enjoy the race!!!
