Gummy Running with Nicholas Megalis


I sure do love that Nicolas Megalis kid, the 24 year old musician and Vine sensation. I just bought his new single “Gummy Money” and put it on my running play list. It’s a hoot. And it encouraged me to buy some Gummy worms to make my own Vine after a recent 4 mile run, […]

I’m back in it to win it! And I brought friends…

Jason Alexander and the Dangers of Motrin: My George Costanza Dream


Jason Alexander and I met at an interior decorator’s trade show, in the antler furniture aisle, in my dream. I’m not really into antler furniture. I’m not sure he is either, but the way he smiled at me made me think he was into me. So I went with it. I recognized him instantly, of […]

How I met The Bloggess and her real best friend IRL at BlogHer


When I met Jenny The Bloggess at BlogHer in San Diego a few weeks ago, I was a little giddy. I usually don’t go GaGa over celebrities and famous people, just so you know, but I admire Jenny’s writing and creativity, along with her bravery, and uncanny ability to effectively use dead animals and monkey […]

Psychic Fitness Games: are you a Free Soul Feeler?


I was wandering around Dudley’s used bookstore in Bend, Oregon the other day when this  “Are you Psychic?” book caught my third eye. It’s by Pete A. Sanders, Jr. and it’s all about the Free Soul Method of expanding your psychic abilities. He is an MIT trained scientist, according to the cover, so he knows […]

Escape to Quiet Village: My new exotic look!


I found this lovely retro album at a garage sale in Oakland, in the free pile! Of course I grabbed it. We don’t have a record player, but it’s the picture I like.  Now I just need to get an orange dress, big gold hoop earrings, and some sort of major push-up strapless bra. Then […]

Duct Tape Car Repair: How to fix a sunroof with Gorilla Tape


I drove to California yesterday, which takes me about 8 hours. I love a good road trip, I enjoy driving alone with my thoughts and Ryan Seacrest’s radio show blaring pop tunes when I’m in range, but John Tesh wears me out a little. All my road trips start with a new roll of tape, […]

Running in Sexy, Pink High Heels: yes or no?


Sure, the pink Oh! shoes are cute and comfortable, but has athletic shoe technology really married Italian fashion design, as they claim? I decided to put them to the test, with a little help from my running partner’s baby. I say yes. Yes, yes, yes, I can run in pink high heels! Official business: This post is […]

The Mysterious Missing Nutella: a Costco Story


I had to go to Costco last week. We were out of toilet paper. For real. We were down to the six pack of State Farm branded mini tissues I snagged from my Eugene Half Marathon goodie bag, and put in the bathroom for emergencies (okay, seriously, they are good neighbors!) I couldn’t wait another day. […]

The FedEx Guy and My Triathlon Training Gear: does this wetsuit make me look fat?


The FedEx man knocked on my door while I was in the bathtub. The dogs went nuts. I didn’t know who it was, but I hadn’t heard from my mom in several days, so I had a hunch it might be her, stopping by, like she does sometimes. I grabbed a towel, and went to […]
