It's Friday.

Once again, rather than having any kind of structure to this blog, i am gonna go off on a tangent.  It's what i do!  I had a post about how running has helped with my Anxiety and OCD (what OCD person doesn't love doing the same activity - left foot, right foot - over and over for hours on end??)  Any way, friday for ME means the day before my long run.  And tomorrow it's 18 miles.  That brings about a whole new level of anxiety.

How the heck does one run 18 miles and not die?  They are basically synonyms!  So Friday is spent eating yummy carbs, but also doing my very best to chill the F*** out. 

Here's whats occupying my mind today (aside from thoughts of impending doom):

1.  There has been an ongoing battle since i started my job over "the pretzel bagel." Every Friday, we get a variety pack of bagels at work.  In that pack, there is usually 1 pretzel bagel (and like 6 onion - wtf?)  and there are at least have a dozen people currently engaged in a never-ending battle over that bagel.  It has gotten intense too.  People love the pretzel bagel.  I usually only get if there is some kind of weather phenomenom that would cause most people to work from home.  But today, i got into work, and there it was, in all it's glory and splendor waiting for me.  I could only assume that one of the other competitors poisoned as a trap to take me out, but even knowing that i devoured it.  and it was delicious.  

2.  Matt is out of town tonight, so obviously i will eat mass amounts of popcorn while dancing around with the dog and watch movies on netflix pine for him in his absence.
3.  The most important reason for me not to die on my run tomorrow is that GAME OF THRONES SEASON TWO STARTS THIS WEEKEND.  I'M TYPING IN CAPS SO IT MUST BE A BIG DEAL!!!.  

Seriously though, so excited.  So, so excited.
5.  Speaking of game of thrones, i actually knocked out TWO chapters last night, right before i went to bed at 9:30.  I'm so cool i have to be measured in Kelvin.
But seriously, that fifth book is long and difficult.  No wonder he's never going to finish the series.....
6.  And lastly, i seriously skipped my run last night, went home, made dinner, and went straight to bed. I don't know what came over me, but even walking up the stairs i was ready to lay down for a break at the second floor.  Thank god our neighbor hates us so i persevered to our apartment.  Because i crapped out last night, i had to get up and run this morning, which normally sucks, but i saw this guys on the news:
If i ever get arrested, i too will sing bohemian rhapsody in its entirety in the back of the squad car.  You have my word.

So thats whats on my mind today, HAPPY FRIDAY!  Do you have any daunting tasks this weekend that are psyching you out??

  4. Pretzel....bagel....? Where does one get such a thing and how can it be in my hand right now???

    This weekend is my running club's 5K race (The Race That's Good for Life in Oak Park in case anyone wants to sign up for a last minute 5K). I'm not running but I am volunteering and, to be honest, I'm not REALLY looking forward to it. I'd rather be running 18 miles.

  5. I love those Game of Thrones photos! I CANNOT WAIT for Season 2! Between re-watching Season 1 and reading the book, I actually have an idea of what is going on. I'm hoping to finish the book in time for the premiere but I don't think that is feasible (I'm on 765/914).

    And that video sure helped make this a great Friday. Thanks!

  6. The guy in the police car is AMAZING......first off, given his state of mind, the fact that he gets most of the lyrics right is incredible, but his CONVICTION to the lyric is off the charts.......I'm a performing singer, and if you don't believe the lyric, your audience will know it in a minute. He made me BELIEVE.....I mean, he's in the back of a police car....."Mama.....life has just begun.....and now I've gone and thrown it all away...." WOW.......and his passion......when he performs some of the instrumental parts......OMG!

    Too damn funny.......I don't know what possessed him, but he ROCKED IT!

    Oh yeah......War is coming! Can't wait!!!!!

    Good luck with the 18......I'm hoping for 12 (but not if it snows!), and then I'm in serious taper for Boston! Have a great weekend!!!!

    1. He is really good to!! I mean, no instrumental, no back up - he is totally on key. I love this song too. i sang it at karaoke once, and wasn't half as good as this guy. I keep watching the video at work. SO GOOD.

      Fingers crossed for no snow!!
