since it's 17 to 26 in t-minus 3:20

It's almost my birthday, where almost means in 2 1/2 weeks, so I made an iphone wallpaper to celebrate the occasion. Feel free to use it up.

i'm struggling to write a paper for one of my grad school classes because i had a lot to drink last night and my head is a little fuzzy, so i thought i would take this opportunity to share with all of you the highlights of my recent trip to new york city. all the pictures can be found in the flickr feed to the right.

  • throwing up on the bus on the way there because i took 2 tylonol p.m. and mixed that with some mojito on an empty stomach. bonus: i swallowed it back down. that was gross.
  • figuring out the subway system, and using the gps on my iphone to track our progress as we walked toward destinations. that little blue dot was really helpful!
  • eating the best pizza i've ever had in my life at arturo's in soho, although our waitress was a bit grumpy and we sat next to some asshats who tried to make fun of me when i was 1 1/2 feet away from them. idiots.
  • drinking wine in little italy at lunchtime, and laughing for a good 5 minutes about something i can't even remember, and i'm not sure i even knew what i was laughing about then, either
  • riding a tiny child's bicycle at fao shwartz, and playing on the big piano
  • seeing kelly ripa jogging in the park, and george hamilton leaving the today show
  • making new friends
  • kissing some random indian man at a pub on the last night there
  • getting molested by the naked cowboy in times square
all in all, it was an awesome time. i can't wait to see the pictures the others took.

A title would go here if I could be bothered writing one

So...haven't had much to say lately. I've been working almost every day, and going to school three nights a week. In other words, I am the walking dead. I also haven't had a drink in 21 days, and I keep telling everyone this like I'm in AA or something. Anyways, here's some boring fact friday for you.

FACT: I once ran the wrong way for about a mile in a marathon, because it was split in the middle between half marathons and whole marathons, and no one bothered to tell me that I was going the wrong direction despite literally hundreds of people standing around who WORKED AT THE MARATHON. I actually stopped running, jogged backwards and asked someone, who shrugged and said, "yeah, you are going the wrong way." and went back to what they were doing, which was standing around watching people run by. So then I had to run full-tilt back to the splitting point and still managed to catch up with someone I started with. It was a relay and everyone was disappointed that I didn't make up for the earlier leg's lost time.

FACT: I still made really good time, considering the extra whole mile I ran.

FACT: No one seemed to care about that at all.

FACT: The other day I was lifting some 10 pound weights over my head to work the back of my arms, and somehow managed to bring the dumbbell down upon the top of my skull with such force that someone on the phone across the room stopped mid-sentence to ask if I was ok because it made such a loud whomp.

FACT: It really hurt a lot.
