Ow fuckity ow

So here’s what made perfect sense while I was asleep.  On my big toe a little flap of skin came loose, you know how it does.. like a little ‘tag’ of skin.    it must have hurt or something bc I woke up to it and was like.. oh just pull it off.. MORON  Now if I had been awake and in reasoning mode, I would have remembered that pulling it just rips the skin all deep like, almost never solves the problem and makes it worse 90% of the time.  Yeah it made it worse.. woke up REALLY fast.  OW OW OW  Had to really get up get some scissors to cut it off but then it hurt like a bitch.  So I had to find a band aid, and then I had to take a fricken pain killer because I couldn’t get back to sleep.

Gawd I’m dumb.   You know it’s going to hurt like hell for days, and I won’t be able to go running (although I might try).  Well I can bike anyway.

But I do have to take more time to study,  I’ve been falling behind and it sucks that I can’t remember a lot of the new words.. sigh.

PICKLES and Bananas

Yeah that title came from a complete lack of inspiration.. meh waddya gonna do?

So my sister is mad at me..  Well not so much mad as mildly irked.. oh she’ll deny it, but ti’s there a smidgen of animosity.  I can sniff it, I can I can.

Now how or why could anyone ever be irked with someone as precious and lovely as me you ask?  I just don’t know, she must be a cranky and disturbed chicky poo.. yes I’m sure that’s it… It can’t be related to the fact that she asked me to do something weeks (yes really weeks) ago and I still haven’t done it.  That would just be silly.

Now in my defense before you all jump up and down accusing me of being a big suck face, she did ask me to do something.  And made the task wildly vague, with no real guidance of what she wanted!  Other than hey can you write a guest sport or two something along the lines of a sports injuries for dummies.  Sounds simple right?

WRONG… what the hell am I meant to write about.. where do you start?  Where do you end?  It’s a heck of a lot harder than you might think.  Imagine if you will, that someone asks you a simple everything and then asks you to give them 10 examples I bet you money you get stuck!

So I have thought of a couple of topics I could mention, but how much do I say?  How much is too much how much is to little… the pressure is Read the rest of this entry »

ING Taipei Marathon 2008

21 12 2008


This picture is from a year or two ago, except for the shirts it's generally the same every year.

So up at 5 this morning, to get my run on in the 1/2 Marathon. The race started at 7 am, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was going to be a warm sunny day. Lemmi tell you I was not looking forward to this race, as a matter of fact I kind of wrote it off. It’s usually cold as BALLZ, and it kills me running it every year. But this year I not only wanted to take my sweatshirt off, I had to! I was so happy that (what might likely be my last ING here) was really pleasant, I love sun.

I didn’t really prepare for it and didn’t really expect that Read the rest of this entry »

It’s my birthday :)

23 09 2008

That is all.. I might write something else later.. but it’s 7am.. so nothing to report although I did get wished happy birthday in German that was fun.

(this is later now) So I went for a run and it was mighty toasty out 🙂 and this big freaky dude started screaming (in Chinese) on the street about how big my boobs were.. lol.. freak.. thought they were exciting bound up in the sports bras.. just imagine the full meal deal.. ok that’s all for now.

(more more)

So after an afternoon of sunning myself and talking to my mom on the phone, I taught one class (but it’s ok it was games class :D) and then went home and got ready for dinner.  Went to this really nice sushi place called New York Sushi and stuffed my self silly with super yummy sushi and had a really good time with everyone who made it out for dinner.  Thanks, Tracey, Melissa, Jodie, Thaddeus, Emma, Bernadette, and Amanda!  🙂   Plus I got some fun prezzies, some new pillows (yeah wanted them) and a new towel (mmm Egyptian cotton) a big awesome bottle of Paul Mitchel tea tree conditioner, plus a really cool blue tooth head set for the computer that Tracey tried to get for me (but the store gave her the wrong ones).  Plus some kids at my school brought me picture and cards they made and some little chocolates…

Plus face book had some serious win today, Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday today 🙂  I’ll be sure to reply to you allsoon! xoxo

Need to finish making my bed and then get into it, tomorrow is my big work day and I better get rested up for it.
