This and That

I have a whole bunch of things to say, but nothing that’s worth an entire blog posting. Hence, I give you this bulleted list1:

  • I went out for a run after work for the first time in about a gajillion years. Seeing as I’m claiming that I’m going to run a half marathon in May, actually running is a pretty good idea.
  • Related: I bought a new pair of Sugoi running pants, courtesy of a Groupon for Forerunners:

Day 246

  • The factory where my friend Kim works making freaking delicious fake meat products was on City TV. Check out the “tenders” (i.e., fake chicken fingers) that they are making in that video. So. Freaking. Delish.
  • I went for my consultation with the dating headhunter on Monday evening and they called yesterday afternoon with info on my two matches. They told me some info about each of them and took info on my availability – the next step is for them to find a time that I can go out for drinks after work with each of them and then they’ll send me the date/time/place and a photo so I know who I’m looking for. Oh yeah, and my prize includes a session with their dating coach, so that will get set up soon too. I’ll keep you posted.
  • I was Facetiming with Dr. Dan last night and, at the exact same time, my friend Patrice called on my cell and my sister & Jeff called me from Vegas on Google Voice. I hardly ever get phone calls2 and somehow I got three at the *exact same time.*
  • I totally want to make a Baked Alaska.
  • I’m contemplating playing hockey for 10 days straight in late August/early September.
  1. who doesn’t love a bulleted list? Hitler, that’s who []
  2. in part because my cell phone doesn’t get much reception at home and in part because people never talk on the phone anymore []

  1. Phones are so old-timey. But FaceTiming was awesomely awesome in the most awesome sort of way.

    Baked Alaska = do it for Pi Day.

    Hockey for 10 straight days is crazy, but awesome. I recommend doing all awesome things. Hence, you should move this from ‘contemplating’ to ‘doing’.

    Hitler did hate bulleted lists. He was an ass like that.

    That is all. For now.

  2. @Dan – Right, Baked Alaska for Pi Day! I forgot that we’d come to that obvious conclusion last night. Now, who wants to come over for some Baked Alaska on March 14?? Also, hockey for 10 straight days has been moved from “contemplating” to “doing.” Vacation time for said event has been approved and I’ve told the organizers that I’m in! w00t!

    @Cath – I think those people need a lot more help than just a dating coach! Also, if anyone has questions they think I should ask said dating coach, let me know!

  3. Totally make baked alaska!!! It is way easy. When I was about 12, my mother had a party and we made 12 baked alaskas. I separated all of the eggs without breaking one yolk. I was a master egg separator! Totally fun!

  4. I was just going to buy a carton of egg whites! That’s what I did to make meringues and it worked pretty good.

    Now I just need to convince someone to come over for dinner on March 14 – Pi Day!
