Not Kidding

A brief missive before I tuck into bed.

It’s Cinco de Mayo, Derby Day and The Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting.  I can’t help but to wonder if when the Mayans were plotting 12/21/12, they were actually looking at today, since you know, it’s kind of a big deal.

Did I mention that Marcus and I popped off to a first birthday party this afternoon for sweet Elsie?  Because there’s that, too.

So like I said with the Mayans, Not Kidding.

While Galina was in Cocoa Beach, she agreed to drop by the outlets in Orlando (obviously this was under duress) to visit the lululemon Outlet down there.

She came back with this Stride Jacket for me.


In the tradition of Rona fromSpirit of the Marathon who argues that wearing black takes at least 10 pounds off of you, I zipped it up and decided that this jacket takes 15 pounds off.

At least.

I’m (embarrassingly) obsessed.

I’ve been back and forth all week about whether or not I’d be starting for the Lake Minnetonka Half Marathon tomorrow morning.  Right now I’m forth, and plan on arriving at the start area sometime around 7:15 AM.  But that didn’t prevent Marcus and I from enjoying ourselves tonight.

Our itinerary: Pairings – Republic – The Nomad – The Wienery.

Because if there’s a chance that I’ll be running long in the morning, then there’s a 100% probability that I’m doing anything other than eating pasta.

Th0ugh you should know that I draw the line at sushi (aka raw things), chinese food (high in sodium), and salad (WAY too much fiber and not enough energy).

I ordered a Surly Furious at The Nomad and it came in this glass.

I die.  Like, what IS this?
