Re: today’s smashing drywall reno post. It just 20/20 hindsight dawned on me, lol! ❓
I choose to live and to
Lie, kill and give and to
Die, learn and love and to
Do what it takes to step through
BIGTIME!! I don’t profess being a plumber … only a know-it-all. But, under this particular October 31st scary situation handled myself handy-dandy-halloween-well, if I do say so myself! Water spewing everywhere on two floors was the last thing I wanted to see. Images of THAT proverbial expen$ive emergency plumber phone-call kept fla$hing in my mind! A bit of collateral drywall damage looking for leaks, and then capping off the water supply with shut-off valves … and dan’s-yer-plumber!!
Burger joint with a gazillion burgers! Gourmet burgers too! Makes your head spin trying to pick that perfect one, so many mouthwatering choices. I know I’ve been lazy lately w/ pics, and w/ food blogging. Not that I haven’t been going to lotsa fun places, I have … just been lazy w/ the pics & bloggin’ ’bout it! And to prove my laziness, this was two week-ends ago, on The Danforth – 888 Danforth – love that lucky number!!
Leaside Burger – upgraded … lean ground Elk …
a side of fries and the obligatory gravy …
Sam Adams AND the Sam Adams glass too – nice touch …
Almost 3 o’clock, and it dawned on me, today’s her birthday. Never slipped my mind before. Guess death does that … no excuses. As I said, terrible!
Sorry, am late in posting, it’s been a hectic weekend. BTW, shouldn’t even be apologizing, giving reasons why I’m posting when I am, as if it’s anybody’s business … for being busy, living my life. On second thought – apology retracted! Found this perusing discussion boards comparing the Wolfgang Puck blender to Vitamix. Loved lacey1’s memorable one-liner summation! Yeah y’all, Listen to chickenbutt! – and def pick/stick w/ Vitamix!!
I did it! I PRed what is one of my tougher runs, and so late in the season. Last 10K PR occurred on September 6, so it gives you an idea of how hard it is to beat. Was cruising comfortably, looking for a sub 45 minute time, and was on pace to finish in 44:50 – ish. But at my 40 minute audio cue, I needed to be at least at 8.89 – 8.90, instead was only at 8.87 kilometers. I knew then, any hope was lost. Now, only question was of PRing, and by how much. Bettered it by 4 seconds, and missed 45 minutes by 8 seconds. It was my 8 and 9 kilometer splits where I lost about 15 seconds. Still pleased, I mean a PR is a PR, lol!
got a feelin’ that forever we are gonna stay together
for me there’s nothin’ better you’re the biggest part of me
well make a wish baby well I know we’ll make it come true
make a list baby of the things I’ll do for you
ain’t no risk now in lettin’ my love rain down on you
so we could wash away the past so that we may start anew
more than an easy feelin’ she brings joy to me
how can I tell you what it means to me
flow like a lazy river for an eternity
I’ve finally found someone who believes in me and I’ll never leave
… LOL!! I ain’t kidding either!! I heard about the guy, and today I witnessed it first hand. Apparently he hangs around the neighbourhood trying to drum up business. A renovator (read scam artist, lol), without a vehicle, without tools, definitely without any license. As we were leaving walking towards the car, he rode past, blurting something out about ‘not hearing from you’, before turning his head and delivering this gem as he continued pedalling, LOL!!
What, me complain? Sorry. But, I have to … ’cause that’s who anal I am! It’s just getting harder and harder lately. I awake, go for my run … and when I return, it’s still pitch black out. Twice, I misstepped nearly twisting my ankle ’cause I couldn’t see sidewalk hazards in the darkness. I’ve been sporting a tuque for weeks, gloves too – HUGE pain in the arse working (trying to work) my phone, my RunKeeper! And with each passing day, temps are dropping … not to mention gale force swirling winds wreaking-wrunning havoc too. All these factors making it increasingly more difficult venturing out, leaving home’s comfy warmth, pushing myself and punishing myself … and to what end?! Honestly, feel like I’m ready to pack it in … not completely, just cut back on the frequency, and cut
back out watching stop watches altogether. Timing is incredibly stressful, and equally exhilarating … but now since it appears PRs are out of the question, I feel it’s a good time to scraptheapp and focus on running, and enjoying it in its purest form, with nobody watching. Just … me myself and I!
File pic, prolly less than 2 months ago – guessing?!
Maybe it’s been my fault all along for having People as one of the widgets on my iGoogle homepage. Maybe I shoulda jettisoned that widgebitch ages ago. What I do know is this; I could give a flying fuck how Kanye West proposed, how Jake Gyllenhaal lost weight for some retarded role in a movie you couldn’t make me/pay me $$ to see, how Julia Roberts swoonscrappola … “my husband made me believe in myself in a whole new way” that makes me wanna violently spewpuke … and how some Jersey shithead knocked up some broad, who now is some Jersey shithead proud poppa to be … that I give even LESS of a rat’s ass about!
want you to know that should I go
I always loved you held you high above too
I studied your face and the fear goes away
but all things change let this remain
And no, I didn’t run … I had to work today, plus I didn’t register in time, but if I did, I would have only entered for the half marathon, no way I’d be able to run a full marathon, not yet. So impressed by those who do. Kudos, congrats to all participants. But, getting caught up in the spirit of the day, went out this morning (such a beautiful, cool, crisp autumn day too) and demolished a 12K … set a PR by a whole minute and a half too! Woot woot! It’s my first PR of the month, and to achieve it today, makes it extra special!
Just asking again … ARGHHH! Had this written ready to send … somewhere in WP SUPPORT re upgrades, but am posting here instead! It ain’t snippy … is it?!?!
yeah, sure i wanna upgrade … spend some of my hard earned cash, help my blog along the way. thing is, i’m unimpressed with wp not directing many of my blogposts to specifically targeted topics, and more unimpressed with wp non-responding to simple queries wondering why?
I needed it! I’d a rough go of late, with missed training and illness, it really has been a struggle. Today’s run was reconfirmation!
After my fast 4K accomplishment, jogging home at a relaxed, comfortable pace finishing up my running, was in order. Near the end, I was waved down by an old lady using a walker thingie with wheels. She was looking for an address, I offered help, but with her advanced age, and needing assistance walking … and more importantly knowing she’d have about 1 kilometer more to go pushing, supporting herself on that old-fogey stroller thingie, I asked, “how far can you go?” … “as far as I have to” was her speedy smiling reply. You go grandma, I thought, lol! And, not one to miss an opportunity, she took a moment to solicit me with some religious crap (pamphlet/literature). Naturally, I took it and thanked her kindly … I didn’t want her to think that her long life spent peddling fantasies were in vain!
map to heaven – just what I need, lol …
happy w/ the sub 18 … not so much with lengthening splits …
but can you rely on anyone in this world
no you can’t it’s not my fault there’s wall to wall empty cans
everyone wanted this to all go wrong for me from the start
it’s fucked up that a man’s life can just be attacked
watching this morning with a beer is much better than relying on
unknown cunts for mates I was given that don’t have my back
so here I am in my house drinking on my own settee
everyone’s a cunt in this life no one’s there for me
’cause tomorrow we’ll survive another day
live for tomorrow
’cause tomorrow will forget about today
live for tomorrow
’cause tomorrow will forgive us all our mistakes
Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!
I swear, she musta said it at least a dozen times, LOL!! Obviously was very pleased I called, and happy with my praise!
… yep, Excellent!
