… it turns out we all hate geese. They’re mean. Enough said. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one out there.
AND, now we all have one more thing in common other than our obsessive foodie and fitness ways. :) So if someone says, “whatever- it’s not like you really know that Amy girl, you guys just like to talk about running and stuff.” You can say, “yes I do too know her, and we talk about more than just that. I know she hates geese. And loves Vince Vaughn.” So there ya go!
Luckily, my Friday went rather quickly. As in super speedy fast. Thank goodness. I was crazy busy, doing my little marketing thing with a smile on my face all day. :) Ok, that’s an exaggeration, but I was happy about being busy.
I made yesterday a mandatory rest day again. I hate that I feel the need to do this- my race is next weekend! I want to be completely ready for it! That being said, I’d rather struggle a little time-wise than struggle by having to limp the last couple of miles because I continued to aggravate the issue. Because last time I did that, I ended up running through the pain until I literally could not walk right one morning. Don’t judge me for my foolish ways. I’m a stubborn chica. And somewhat delusional when it comes to my invincibility.
However (after all that), I do have a test run planned for today. I woke up feeling pretty good, so I’m gonna have another go at it and see what happens. There are no set plans of how far I’m going to run. I’m just saying that I am.
When I got home, I tried out Low’s egg souffle that she so kindly posted (check hers out- because it’s so much prettier than mine turned out!). If she hadn’t of posted it, I would have probably emailed her or bugged her daily saying, “Hey! I need that in my life!!!!”. So thanks, Low! :) I didn’t have spinach (like she used), so I sauteed mushrooms instead with my Trader Joe’s 21 Season Salute that I picked up (another good unplanned purchase at my beloved TJ’s). When I threw it all together in my little ramekin, I was a little skeptical. Ok, alot- it looked gross. I won’t lie. But I popped it in the oven and said, “screw it, might as well see what happens.” After I did that, I poured myself some of this awesome TJ wine:In case this meal was an epic fail, at least I’d be on my way to happy town! It’s nice there…But it wasn’t a fail. It was actually awesomeness. Yes, awesomeness. Because I did all the mixing in the ramekin I used to bake it in, it doesn’t look so great- but that was me being too lazy to transfer it into something else. Of course, I was a bit impatient and burned the top of my mouth in the first bite, but I’ll let that slide. I see endless possibilities with this one… I’m pretty sure my lame “veggie scrambles” will soon be thrown into these yummy meals instead. Sooooo good! Did I get my point across? No? It was fantastic!
What wasn’t fantastic? I had a “goodie bag” on my door from the management company wishing me a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Yes, that’s cute. I know. But really… it’s always gross. I’d prefer just a nice card? With some well wishes? Or, as much as I pay in rent, spring for some good stuff.
I didn’t realize green fortune cookies were an Irish tradition? Quirky (the fortune said “Happy St. Patrick’s Day”, btw- really original). That’s fine. At least I got some chocolate coins! Right? Perfect for dessert! Uh… I opened one and wondered what the hell it was. I still don’t know. I smelled it. I felt it. I tried to break it. I even went as far as to lick it (thinking maybe it’s a sweet tart or something). Still no clue.
Thanks guys. Try again. Maybe spring for some real or at least semi-real chocolate next time? Or something that won’t sit inside of me for 25 years because my stomach can’t figure out how to digest it? Thanks!
One quick thing before I leave- has anyone heard about Betty White hosting Saturday Night Live? How freakin’ awesome! LOVE her! And who doesn’t love The Golden Girls?
Oh weekend… how I love thee! And I have so much to do… so I better get moving.
