Bikes and Beer
Of course the first major athletic thing I register for in my life involves bike rides and beer! I just registered for the 8th Annual Tyranena Oktoberfest Bike Ride! And with my longest ride of the summer, and probably my life, so far being 30.02 miles, I of course registered for the 65-mile ride. As my AP Chemistry Teacher, Ms. Karen Campbell, always said, GOBOSH. Go Big Or Stay Home. ...
Bananzattack: I was wrong about runners high. →
My world was turned upside down yesterday. I learned that the best running can come out of pain. It can come out of sorrow and gratitude. When I first started running over a year ago, I would often get the elusive ‘runners high’. They came early and often, because I was just starting out and…
Stem cell research. Women’s reproductive rights. Gay marriage. These are the issues people base their campaigns around? These shouldn’t even be issues. Politics is such a joke. I’ll vote for whoever makes voting mean something beyond validating your religious beliefs.
If I flew to another country for vacation and did nothing but sit in coffee shops and watch movies in the hotel all day, every day, I’d be pretty content with that. I might go to some book shops and second hand stores too.

1871 miles to Arizona. Good riddance.
Anonymous asked: Have you ever swam in the Milwaukee River?
I like to go on first dates every so often to remind myself that I am socially awkward. And by first date, I meant I’m still single. And by I’m still single, I mean I think he liked me more than I liked him and oh shit he has my number and might call me and I have caller ID and will ignore it because I am a horrible person who is not able to find the right words to say I just...
I have a theory about my billing at work. I have a theory that our servers are so clogged with users that it’s slowing down our connection to the point where I really think 1 1/2 hours of my day is spent waiting for pages to load. Well, it turns out it’s more than that. Today I decided to actually time how long pages took to load just to enter my case notes. I entered 7 case...
Life lessons: when you live outside of a 10 mile radius of your friends, they replace and forget about you.
My cat just got done slurping the tiny bit of melted down ice at the bottom of her glass, to let me know she needed a refill. Sort of. She’s actually clinking her collar against the empty food dish and meowing pitifully. She just might fall over and starve to death at any second. I want to tell her to cut it out because It’s annoying. She’s not going to eat it right away...
Right before the sun comes up, when the sky is just starting to turn that periwinkle blue, and the old fashioned street lamps outside are still on and lit up against that sky, and then they flicker off as the sun starts peaking out from behind the trees. That is why I wake up at 5:30 in the morning.
I think it would probably suck to have both a st-t-t-t-tutter and a lithp.
I think I’d like to open a bar and call it “Tapped”.
I don’t think anything could sum up this experience more than the free program they handed out just past the entrance, next to the Budweiser tent: This weekend is not about seeing artists perform in an acoustically superior concert hall. It’s not about the money, the sweat, the blisters, or the exhaustion. It is about saying yes, over and over. This is your annual musical seminar,...
Things I Ate Today
Funnel Cake Chocolate covered bacon Roasted corn on the cob with butter and salt Deep fried Milky Way Beer battered cheese curds Kosher dill pickle Lake Front Brewery IPA Fresh squeezed lemonade And throughout this entire day of Heart Attack Buffet, the one concern I had was the sodium content of the pickle. I have a problem. I’d like another Milky Way. Deep fried in funnel cake...
