random thoughts

~i've never desired to go to Paris, yet lately I keep having dreams that I'm traveling there...and enjoying it. now I kind of want to go there. strange.

~the song with the most plays, 283, on my iPod is: "Margaritaville "by Jimmy Buffett. When I noticed this yesterday, it made me laugh out loud. It remains E's favorite song. Whenever he is fussing in his car seat I can put this song on and his world is just again. This has been going on since last October. good thing i love JB as much as I do.

~don't all you gals be jealous now, but I'm off to the OB today. 2nd visit in as many weeks. I know you wish you were me!!

~for some (stupid) reason, Firefox does not like some blogs & will not allow me to comment....so then I have to go open IE, get to the blog and comment there. a real PITA!

~Hewlett Packard just notified me that they are awaiting a part in order to fix my PC and now won't be delivered 'til Oct 26. That's WAY more than 7-10 days they quoted. turds!

~my running is still chugging along albeit at a much less intense pace/rate. I've decided to try for shorter runs (2-3 miles) on a more regular basis...almost daily. We'll see how long that lasts...I'm just really bored with it right now.

~i found a new love (yes, another). pumpkin bagels w/pumpkin cream cheese. Einstein Brothers is the place. hooray for having one on campus. gonna have to get another before the season passes.

We have an Einstein Brothers on our college campus. Since I often run around the campus, I might have to stop and try this out. Do you think they'll mind sweaty money?

I'm proud of you for continuing the running. I've been in some slumps, too.

i've never heard of pumpkin bagels....sounds delicious.

pumpkin bagels with pumpkin cream cheese??????????????? I WANT SOME NOWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!

Ellie said...

Pumpkin cream cheese? I'm guessing it's one of those things that is much, MUCH better than it sounds.

Beth-no, they won't mind the sweaty money...and if they do...well, they'll have to deal. The pumpkin goodness is SO worth it!!

OP-I was surprised to see them & just HAD to try. Soooo good!

Loredana-You must get them. Delish!

Ellie-I was shockingly surprised at how good the cream cheese was. I can't wait to get another - Tuesday...my next work day.

Sounds like a fair day to me. :)

I couldn't run like that. Guess I'm too lazy. I can dance though.

JB is my favorite!! You and your son have great taste. My son loved Elvis and still does - weird for a 17 yr old.

Good luck at the OB! I am SOOO NOT jealous of that experience! :P

And why was i unaware that someplace sells pumpkin bagels!?! SIGH. no einstein around here :(

I think it is incredible that you are still running! I have been pretty lazy for a while now :(

Hopefully I'll get into the groove again.

As for E, thankfully he's not hooked on some annoying kids song or annoying singer like Kanye ;)

Hope everything goes better at the OB this time around!

yummmm that bagel creation sounds awesome!

hang in there with the running! take a few days off here and there but keep trucking. you'll crest this hill soon enough. do you think entering a fun 5k or 10k would help? sometimes the race environment alone helps re-boost my spirit.
