Update

Huge things are happening in OK Chick’s life. HUGE. Ok, not really. But I thought if I got you intrigued, you’d continue reading. Is it working?

This week has been a boring week. There’s been a few exciting things, but the week as a whole has been boring. I think it’s because of all the rain we received. I find that rain makes people tired and boring. Still, I feel it’s my duty, as a good blogger, to post something for my two faithful readers. So here’s a run down of the exciting things from the week.

Fried Chicken…
I finally experienced the infamous Eischens!

I’ve been told it’s the oldest bar in Oklahoma. Their menu is small- Fried Chicken, Fried Okra, Nachos, Beer, Coke, and Water. We ordered everything on the menu. I have to say…it was pretty good and the place itself is cool.

Tornadoes….
It’s tornado season. Sunday morning. No scratch that…. it was Monday at 1:30am when the sound of tornado sirens woke me from my sleep. I knew Sister #1 wouldn’t want to miss all the fun so I woke up her to watch TV with me. We turned on the TV to find my boy Gary England informing the Greater OK area that a tornado had touched down in my town. Of course, they weren’t 100% certain it had touched the ground because the power was out and it was dark outside. I’m sure if I hadn’t been so tired I might have been more scared, but it was 1:30 in the morning. After about 30 minutes of Gary England, Sister #1 and I decided we were in the clear.

Date…
I have a date with this man August 13th.

SO excited! I bought two tickets Sunday evening. Who’s the lucky person to sit beside me? Sister #1. The concert will be 2 days before I graduate with my MBA.

Little Shuffle…
Tuesday I ran with Little Shuffle. It was ok. I miss Big Shuffle. I miss the music I had on Big Shuffle. I’m running tonight so maybe things will be different.

Race…
Sunday I’m running one of my favorite races.

It’s a 10K. I think I can run 6 miles, but you never know with me. Some days I can run lots of miles and some days I can barely run around the block. Let’s hope Sunday I’m ready to run!
But on the plus side, my dad has decided to take up biking. He has never biked. He’s biking his first race on Saturday, its 33 miles. Then my dad thinks he’s going to run 6 miles on Sunday. Now my dad is an awesome man, but he’s not that awesome. Let’s say he can walk after he bikes on Saturday; he’ll try to run on Sunday. If this unfolds like I think it will, he bikes and runs back-to-back days; the odds that I’ll kick his butt on Sunday are HUGE! I’ve never beat my dad in a race. Sad I know!

Well I think this is all I have for you today.

I am so glad you finally went to Eischen's. It's good, but it kind of smells bad, in a greasy kind of way. Sorry about Big Shuffle too. What a loss.

Perhaps you should get a bike and join dad? Throw in some swimming now and then... put them all together on one glorious day and you are right in the middle of a great time! Or if you just want to stay with the bike and the run, there are several great duathlons there in OKC. Best of luck on Sunday.

Praise the Lord for Aunt Linda! I found out who the guy was in the photo without having say that I didn't have any idea who he was either and reveal my total uncoolness!

Isn't Eichen's great? I was preggie with Cason the first time I went so it was really yum.

And I wish placa de video would go away. They left two comments on my blog! Of course now if you erase it, no one will know what I am talking about.
