Hello and HAPPY FRIDAY to you!
Finally! Friday, I thought you'd never make it, but WELCOME!!!
Aren't you all excited that Spring is just around the corner? After a long winter, I am looking forward to some better weather soon.
Speaking of Spring, one of the annual kickoffs to spring here in Chicago is the Shamrock Shuffle, which is an 8K race (5 miles) that will be taking place on Sunday morning.
Does your catholic priest like little boys? Duh, of course I will be!
I am going to try to beat last year's time of 34:56 (6:59 min/mile).
I came in 587th overall (out of 13,399 finishers!)
Ok, I'll stop tooting my own horn now. However, my goal is to finish at least one second faster than last year. :)
Which means that I won't be going out this weekend, and will have to fight the temptation of gorging myself with Doritos, and stop myself from eating the entire jar of Peanut Butter out of sheer boredom!!!
Also speaking of Spring...
The annual March Madness college basketball tournament is under way! This is the first year in 'God knows how long' that I didn't fill out a bracket. Time just got away from me...
You see, I tend to root for the underdogs!...and by not filling out the bracket, I got to enjoy some nice surprise wins by Ohio and Murray State without having to worry about yanking my hair out as my bracket gets jacked up!
I did pick a Final Four though. My pics are: Kansas, Kentucky, Kansas State, and Villanova.
Hmm...we'll see how i do! Who did y'all pick?
Thank you to everyone for your comments on my post about getting a Kindle or not!
From the sound of it, those of you who have an e-reader prefer the Barnes & Noble Nook, so I will definitely go there and play around with one.
Those of you who don't have one sound like you really just don't want one, which I completely understand as well!
Look, I wrote a post about her a couple of weeks ago, saying that her music has become a guilty pleasure of mine...and yes, I stand by that. Those songs are infectious!
However, I kind of find her to be repulsive, and trying too hard to be 'different or 'shocking.'
So basically, I like her songs, but am over her!
Michael Rivers! I am very grateful to have gotten to know him a little through the blogosphere and am very happy that I can call him a pal of mine!
Please check out his blog here.
Have a GREAT WEEKEND everyone!
