First world problems.





1.  Can i just bring up the plague of raccoons that is accosting our lakefront path?  Seriously, where do all these raccoons come from??  Everytime i run by the lake i encounter one.  One even accosted Kelsey, Keren, and I last Tuesday for our Chicks Night run.  And by accosted, i mean it stood there and looked at us. I tried to take a picture of the one i saw last night snacking on some garbage to prove to everyone that this is really happening, but i don't have an iphone, therefore the picture is illegible.
Next stop, national geographic - wild life photography division.
Also, thanks to all the people on the bike path who stopped to inform me that raccoons are wild animals, and dangerous, and that getting in one's face with a camera phone is a sure fire way of catching rabies.  I had no idea.

2. It's so beautiful out.  So beautiful that i wore sandals to work.  Then i realized that my feet are so busted that it offends people.  I think work will be instating a no sandals policy in the near future thanks to me.
Sorry guys.

3.  Dust in the Wind?  Great song by Kansas, terrible idea.  TERRIBLE.  Dust in the wind?  More like sand in my face.  The super high winds pelted me with sand near North ave beach last night.  I was wearing shorts, so i actually have a bunch of little scratch marks on my legs from the sand hitting me.  ouch.

4.  I promise that this is as political my blog will ever get.  Maybe its the sleep deprivation, but all i could think of at 5am this morning is the conspiracy theory that i am 90% sure Mitt Romney is actually Harvey Dent.
I mean, seriously - 
Ok, maybe it's just me.

5.  I have a serious problem with being competitive at all the wrong things.  Fridays at our office is now officially food challenge friday.  If you challenge me to eat/drink something (and it won't kill me)  I can't say no.  Last Friday i had to drink a glass of weird 15 year old champagne we found in the basement of our office.  Lesson:  It does not get better with age - it gets rancid.

6.  I have a candy hoarding problem.  Especially now that i can't eat it until lent is over, i am hiding it all over my work space.  If i can't eat it, NO ONE CAN.
CANDY HOARDING - MAJOR FIRST WORLD PROBLEM.  (and great idea for new reality show!)


7.  Now that it's getting warmer out, i actually sweat when i run.  That means i am going to have it shower infinitely more than i have been-spray in dry shampoo can only do so much.  Don't judge me - i know you do it too.

8. The dog keeps waking up earlier and earlier in the morning, not because she has to pee, but because she is so hungry at 5am that she can't sleep any more until she eats something.  The problem?  I have the same exact problem....
I can't sleep for 8 hours straight without eating more food.  I carbo-load to sleep.....

8.  When i chew gum, especially if i am running, it triggers an asthma attack.  Because i am that cool.

9.  And finally - this chart basically sums up my life.

  1. Running outside down here in the suburbs (near the forest preserves) runs the risk of coming across a coyote - I'll take a 'coon any day!

    1. I thought i saw a coyote once and i screamed at it, but it turned out to be someone's german shepard. The worst part is that it was broad daylight. Super embarrassing....

  2. It seems like we haven't had luck with just a nice spring day yet... the wind is crazy!

    Can we submit challenges on Fridays?

  4. My coworker loves to tell the story of the time he was practically accosted by a roving gang of raccoons in Edgewater. I think he might be exaggerating. Maybe.

    Also, random bottle of basement champagne? You are braver than I.
