Waffle tacos, life changes, and Olympic Fatigue

This isn't phallic at all! Oh, wait a minute....
In a true moment of “good lord, why didn’t I think of that?” Taco Bell is rolling out a new line of breakfast items. Most notably? An eggo waffle taco with sausage and egg in the middle. Seriously, people have been eating breakfast for 4000 years and we are just now thinking of this!? Granted, we had the pancake & sausage corn dog thing before, but I think that we can all admit that it was just a BIT too phallic for its own good.

The real question? Will the waffle taco clean me out in 30 minutes like a normal Taco Bell taco does?? Time will tell!

I’m currently in week two of a new job! The only catch is that I am working with the same people that I’ve worked with for the last two years and sitting in the same desk that I’ve sat in for the last 6 months. One might say that my new job is a bit anti climatic. But, it is with a great company and great people, so who am I to complain? So, while week one was all about sexual harassment videos, week two is about blog writing and surfing twitter getting work DONE!

I bought a house on Thursday. While not my first but my third, nothing says “oh crap, I’m an adult” like signing yourself up for 30 years worth of bills.  Now starts the agonizing process of determining which says “I’m an adult” better: Guest bedroom ball pit playhouse or master bedroom race car bed.
It is called DECORATING people....

Running hasn’t been going bad, but hasn’t been going good, and instead has simply been going.  I’ve settled into a 45-50 mile per week routine that still keeps me regular allows me to eat what I want and call myself a runner. It isn’t ideal marathon training at all, but is certainly good enough half marathon training which will have to work for now.

Finally, the winter Olympics are over. Being more of a summer Olympics kind of a guy, I can admit that I was getting a bit of Olympic fatigue. Just as skiers likely say “how many events can you have running around in a circle!?” I was starting to start to glaze over with the seemingly endless “super combined” and various “slope styles”. Don’t confuse my fatigue with apathy though. Flying through the air, doing 15 spins, landing (!?!?!), all with sharp 5 foot long sticks strapped to my feet is freaking crazy.  But, alas, there are no booty shorts in the winter Olympics….bring on Rio!

ohhh so you went with a company you were consulting for!! well that's always a risk they run with great consultants :)

I personally love the stuffed animal decor and would like to see you do something similar

Okay, so I knew you took a new job, and I've seen recent pictures on FB of Utah... and now you're mentioning buying a new house... did you relocate to Utah?

Congrats on the new job and house and let me know how that breakfast taco works for you.

I must agree, the winter Olympics were beginning to drag on as well for me but you are right, I can watch people run in circles for eons and be happy so perhaps someone out there loves watching the skiers go down a hill over and over and over and over....but the figure skating....that's nicer! They twirl to music!

Have a great day!

I'm not sure which is worse - that Taco Bell came up with something like this or that they had to include syrup with it. Stuff like this is why the aliens never land.

Congrats on the job going well and WOW a new to you house? That is awesome. Oh really 45-50 miles per week, if only I could muster that many miles a week lol.

New house and new job?! You are moving forward!
That taco bell thing looks bad. Forget the shape, I couldn't eat that if they made it look like hearts and rainbows.

Learning that Taco Bell was now doing breakfast was a true facepalm moment. Good luck with that!!

Sooo, I found your blog at 3 am this morning while trying to re-settle the baby. It's kind of hard to do that when I'm trying not to laugh out loud but still kind of shaking from laughing.

Congrats on the new job and house. I vote the ball pit playhouse because let's be honest, everyone has at one time wished they could jump in and play in one without creeping out the parents that are watching their kids at the play place. If you had one, you could hang out in it without wondering if some kid peed in. Oh, nobody else wishes that? I don't either.

I am in awe because your weekly miles is my miles for the month.
