‘tis an inflamed tendon in my left knee. which basically means that my knee is bat-shit swollen from the innards. it also means that it’s not busted and i can RUN!!! i’m on mega-anti-inflamatory medication and as long as it doesn’t hurt and i ice it after working out, i’m good to go! half-marathon, you will be my bitch.
Monday, bloody Monday
1. Don’t you hate it when you’re expecting one person to get a promotion that directly affects your job and then another person gets it? I do. How dare you make me change the way I do bidness witchu!! 2. I have an orthopaedic appointment Wednesday morn to figure out what’s wrong with the abomination we’re still referring to as my “knee.” Gross picture of my...

legs and arms massively bruised. not a big deal, i bruise crazy easily. left leg swollen twice its normal size and not bendy/able to carry weight? kind of a big deal. tomorrow will be spent looking up orthopods in my health insurance network. hopefully i just hyper-extended it and it just needs to rest. in related news, this is not good for my half marathon training. in related great news, i...

twohippiechic: This perfectly sums up my feelings towards this show! I got sucked in & can’t wait for next week! WHY?! -J Argh! i just watched it on hulu (from my bed with my hyper-extended knee) and i feel the SAME way!
Awkward run-ins still occur at the mud run.
Some people may remember this story. Basically I hooked up with a [really hot] guy one night, saw him at the grocery store the next week, got his number from a mutual friend, texted him and heard nothing back. Whatever…I mean tons of excuses, but I’ve read He’s Just Not That Into You. Even though I found it curious that he came up to talk to me at the grocery store. Maybe he...
Mud run in less than 12 hours.
good lord. my team had a training session/pasta party/team bonding night this evening. we went over all 32 events on the 4.2 mile course and strategized how best to complete them. we think there might be one we won’t be able to do. i’m terrified of all of the 10’ plus high walls. all i have to say is that the t-shirt design better be kickass. oh, and tomorrow there’s...

Grad trip 2011
When I graduated from college in 2007, my sister graduated from high school. Natch, we took a family vacay. We spent two and a half weeks in Hawaii. We (by we I mean my mother) invited my best friend, Taylor who had only once in his 23 years of life been out of Eastern Standard Time. So we go to Hawaii and it was fab. (As a note, it was my 4th or 5th time there and I refused to let us go to Oahu...

So I’m going to the Association of General Contractors meeting today. It’s actually cool because it’s kind of a BFD in the transportation construction arena. Mostly it’s a meeting with a bunch of high ups in the state DOT and the Contractors. As in, the owners of the companies…talking about high level bidnasss. So I’m excited because I’ve been entrusted...
I went to the dentist today and got fillings. I’m usually totally fine, but one of the two was the last tooth and they put the numbing stuff all up in my grill piece. Now I’m sore because of the shot. This is a problem for my baked rosemary garlic pork chops. :(
you have made a huge impact on my friend, fyi :)– Facebook message from a stranger. Evidently my Myrtle Beach dancing skillz cannot be beat.

Definitely could have used this tailgating after the Georgia game…
I HATE it when people who have offices come to cube land to talk to people. I mean, if you want to talk about shit, please do so where you have fucking WALLS. I don’t care one bit about your life, and now it’s getting in the way of doing my work.
Pretty much all of my best friends are friends from college. (Not all of them, obviously.) What’s weird is that when I move all over the place I tend to make really really good friends in my new homes as well. I moved to Atlanta and was friends with Meg, Margaret and Katie. I still stay with one of those girls whenever I go to ATL and I was a guest at Marg’s wedding. I attended...

Oh and also!
I went to the dentist today and got a referral for an orthodontist!! I realize that MOST people got braces when they were like 11, but I didn’t need them then. Technically, I don’t need them now, but I gots me some crookedy crowdy teef up in mah grill piece. So I’m going for my free consultation the first week in October. I am quite excited!!!
Does anybody do barefoot running? Or use the Vibram Five Fingers? I bought these really cute pink flats for $20 at Banana Republic on sale, but they only had a 7.5 or 9 and I wear an 8. Clearly I got the 7.5. Well, I wore them and tore up the back of my heel. I went to the gym (to run on the treadmill…I know, but I’m a baby about the heat…and I’m only running like 3.5...
'Member that time I got a speeding ticket?
Oh, no? Probs because it was today. I was driving a work vehicle on the way from lunch to a meeting. And evidently was going 71 in a 55. To reiterate, it was a WORK vehicle. I mean, really? Clearly I freaked out since this was the first time that I’ve ever even gotten pulled over! I think the cop felt bad b/c he lowered it to 64 in a 55 which was super nice of him. My friend’s old...

Just officially paid/registered for the half marathon in November. I’ve got a trusty training program already on my outlook calendar and I’ve mapped out various running distances both from my house and my gym. Wish me luck…training starts today!
Work Rant: I’m not responsible for others’ lack of attention. So we have about 180+ projects to do two inspection on each. And there are two other people in my office to do those inspections. That means that there are 3 people doing approximately 120 inspection a piece. We’ve gone ahead and split up all of the inspections between us. Which is all fine and dandy. I got the...

Sweet Jeebus, thank goodness Earth Fare is open until 9pm Also - this is admittedly embarrassing - Wizards of Waverly Place has some really famous guest stars. Yesterday Stanford Blatch was on, and today Wilmer Valderama was on. And I love watching the Disney channel hungover. Or E!
So we were ranked 10th at the beginning of the season. Lost to Boise State and went down to 13th. Then we lost to fucking JMU. ie: high schoolers. Now we don’t even have votes. But JMU does. We haven’t been 0-2 since 1995. 2010 will be the year that football didn’t exist.
