Royal Baby

 

People (I’m talking about Americans) who get unreasonably annoyed that the coverage of the royal baby being born are just as annoying as those who get unreasonably excited about. Different sides of the same coin. 

What are you so upset about?! Conversely, what are you so excited about?!

In conclusion: shut up about not caring about this baby! And shut up about how excited you are! 

I Immediately Regret This Decision

I’m going to cut to the chase–I’m supposed to run/speed walk/craw/jog the Marine Corps Marathon in October. How I got here is not important. I take full responsibility for allowing my friend to register me. Although, I didn’t think she was going to be able to, since website for registration kept going down. I was feeling smug because I had done a triathlon sprint just a handful of months before.

With all of that said: I AM SO FUCKING FUCKED.

Reasons Why I Should Not Run a Marathon

  1. I took a long break from running
  2. Due to that long break, I suck at running.
  3. Running sucks.
  4. I’m a few weeks behind on my training plan.
  5. It’s hot and humid outside.
  6. I will die.

Reasons Why I Should Run a Marathon

  1. I bought new running shoes.

You can see my problem. I have FIVE more reasons why I SHOULDN’T do it versus the one that I should. How do I get out of this? Is it too late to back out? Do I suck it up, train as much as I can and drop out at mile 10? What is the etiquette here?

Geraldo Makes Everyone Close Their Laptops at the Same Time

[I originally posted this here on July 21st, 2013. I’ve included the original tweet for this post.]

So, I was catching up on my Buzzfeed as I usually do on a Sunday morning, when I clicked on this link (SWFish but NSFLife) of a Geraldo Rivera shirtless selfie:

HOLY GOD IS IT DISTURBING TO LOOK AT. Honestly, what I find most disturbing about Geraldo Rivera’s shirtless selfie is the towel strategically placed to cover his genitals being mashed against a sink counter and his red tinted eye glasses. Also, way to rotate a picture Geraldo. This image will haunt me.

For all of you, that much like myself clicked out of some weird perverse curiosity, I’ll leave this:
