Blogging Intervals

Calling bullets intervals makes them sound MUCH more interesting, right? (I'm pretty sure I got that from Razz)

Since I am in taper and have loads of free time, I'm going to try to catch up on some of the new visitors blogs tonight. Be on the lookout for hil-arious blog comments.

  • My nipples hurt. Seriously. Because I am allergic, instead of band-aids to cover my man bits I've switched to surgical paper tape. It is TONS better but I sort of have an out of body experience when I have to rip the SOBs off. It seems like sweat and heat turns paper tape from "sorta sticky" to "sticker than the grip that Ryan Secrest has on his flat iron". Yeeowza.
  • It is interesting seeing people in the gym from work that you have never seen there before. Or vice-versa: Seeing gym people 'dressed up'. I recently saw my favorite Partner at our company at the gym in workout clothes - not a suit. It was fun. Just like the book says: "Everybody poops". Today I learned that everyone also works out in shorts - not in pressed pants and a blazer.
  • I may have accidentally posted my "A goal" for RnR New Orleans yesterday on twitter. Which is exactly why you should be following me.
  • Last night, because LOST was on and because I needed to get a make up 5 mile run in, I ordered room service instead of going out to eat. I ordered the club sandwich with a side of vegetables instead of fries. NEVER.AGAIN. Their idea of 'vegetables' was a steaming pile of shit pearl onions and brussel sprouts. (picture below) Honestly the brussels weren't all that bad, but I HATE HATE onions. I nearly threw them at the TV when NBC stopped bob-sledding coverage for figure skating.
  • The cell phone that I use is a 3 year old Treo smart phone. I noticed that it gives all of the pictures a bit of a green tint sorta like the matrix. It is my own personal Zack Morris phone. You hear that Treo?...that is the sound of inevitability...the sound of your death.

Have you tried treating you nipple protection with something non-adhesive material in strategic locations... it seems the surrounding tissue is less sensitive, usually.

I will forever be mystified by runner men and their nips. I just don't understand.

Taper madness, taper madness, taper madnes... only 4 more days darling! We can do this! :)

Vegetables from Room Service? What were you thinking?

GeorgiaSnail said...

the tape comes of easier in the shower....

I was about to pull your man card for the fuckin Seacrest pic until I realized you use your evil for good deeds....

Rio said...

Those veggies look a bit..let me put it nicely- vile! Good try to be good, though. My phone is a 3 year old LG Chocolate. It makes bright green look pea green. Not pretty.
Sorry about your nips.

Call me crazy, but I really like the photo from your Saved By The Bell phone.

I hear wearing your nipple tape into the shower helps with easy removal. I hear.

LOL, Back in the day (which at times WAS a Wednesday)and I was consulting...I stayed at the Marriott in Minneapolis. I enjoyed the room service Club Sandwich there QUITE a bit. (It was probably thing I ordered most.) I never went with the side of veggies. Weird, now I'm craving those Marriott fries for the first time EVER. The personal bottle of ketchup was always a nice touch.

Anyway, brussels and onions=vegetables? I would have at least expected steamed carrots? Probably some broccoli. More stems than heads if they were being cheap. You should have politely complained. Whenever I had a minor issue it lead to a room upgrade my next visit. Whenever my superior co-worker complained she got fruit baskets. Either way a win-win? An apple>pearl onions.

With you 100% on the nipples & out of body experience. The shower helps...a little.

holy crap! For a while there I thought that was some photo of a bowl of river rocks you found on the web. So yeah, I can understand being upset if I was delivered that and told it was my dinner.

Oh, and I also like that medical paper tape (assuming that's the stuff you're talking about).

I agree with you about seeing work people at the gym or working out. It's kind of cool to see people in that atmosphere.

It's always a crapshoot when ordering veggies on the side instead of fries. They can so easily be ruined!
