Today is a very exciting day. The season 4 Game of Thrones trailer airs at 8:58pm.
|I hate this scene, but this made me laugh.|
This weekend has been kind of busy. Like, I didn't even get to fool around on the internet or play Words With Friends at all on Saturday.
Friday night we had big plans to finally watch Silver Linings Playbook, because like the rest of America, we are obsessed with J. Law.
By the time we were both home from work and had been chatting for awhile, it was 8:30. I immediately looked up the run time on IMDB and saw it was over 2 hours and freaked out because that meant we wouldn't finish until after 10:30pm. At that point, it's a race against the clock to see if I'll stay awake to see the whole movie, and my track record isn't good.
I demanded we start right away, and I'm pleased to report I made it (and of course went to bed directly after the last scene). Dorothy, I don't think we're in our 20s anymore.
Saturday was my first real long run of 100 miler training. Last weekend, I did 24 miles (maybe) at PHUNT, but getting up on your own to run requires a lot more motivation than going to a race. Also, walked a lot at PHUNT, which is fine because I plan to walk a lot in the race.
I was meeting Lily at 7:15 to run ten miles along the harbor before my running store shift at 9:40. I had big plans to get up at 5am and run 7 miles on my own first, but as you may imagine, that didn't happen after my wild Friday night.
Instead, I split my run, doing ten in the morning, and the last 7 after my shift ended at 4pm. I wimped out for the second part and ran it on the treadmill. I was really over the cold rain and especially the 100% humidity.
Last weekend, I ran for 5.5 hours in deep snow and single digit temps, and was fine. Yesterday, I ran for an hour and a half while it was raining and 40 degrees and was shaking and couldn't feel my fingers for like 30 minutes. The human body is a mystery.
Splitting your long run is not ideal, but sometimes it needs to be done. Next week will be another one of those times. So....yeah.
After that, I had to rush to shower to hurry over to my BFF Carolyn's for game night. I don't want to brag or anything, but it would have been hard for them to start without me. I'm kind of a big deal - I've developed a bit of a reputation for bringing epic desserts. In fact, at the last two parties Carolyn has hosted, I've had someone come up to me right away to tell me they heard that if I brought a dessert, they had to try it because it would blow their mind. Truth.
I'm happy to oblige. This time, I brought red velvet dip.
|Rave reviews, as always.|
If you want things to get super competitive right away, play anything girls vs. boys. That's how we started Taboo. I'm sorry to report the women were not victorious here.
Then an old classic came out.
