Friday Fun Fact

While eating lunch, I sit here trying to think of something to post. I’m debating between two topics; how much my new set of textbooks cost or what I had for lunch. Needless to say, those were boring topics. I mean, I don’t even want to write about those things.

Since I couldn't think of anything creative I turned to my BFF Google. I was disappointed that Google had nothing to offer today. After few bites of my sandwich, 3 chips, and a few sips from my V8 Splash, I decided to turn to my favorite sitting in class site-Cosmo. When clicking around I discovered a page called...Conversation Starters. I was thought to myself....oh this could be helpful. Blogger World, here is today's Conversation Starter....

You can now measure your pup's cleverness with the PoochIQ.com Dog Intelligence Kit, which tests such things as whether your canine can remember where you've hidden a treat after he's been taken out of a room for 30 seconds.

What? This is stupid. Why would anyone even mention this in a conversation? I can just imagine some goofy girl walking up to a conversation and spouting off Cosmo's Conversation Starter, trying to be smart. You can't see me right now, but I'm so rolling my eyes. I should have just posted how my new textbooks cost over $300.

oh that's funny! Cuz I could so totally think of a comment to the testing your dog's intellegence, but I wouldn't start a conversation with it.

and over $300 for books sounds about what I used to pay...seems that all my classes would require brand new textbooks each term...and it didn't help at all that my classes were all techy and needed the new books all the time anyway. I'm not sure I'll ever get my degree though. I quit in 96!

btw: my dog does really well on those intellegence tests, but I think she's got adhd!

I always hated it when it came time to buy new textbooks :-/ They cost soooooooo much money! I was like, seriously people, I'm paying how much in tuition?!?! I don't think I ever had a semester that was under $350 between books and "course packs." Ugh, I'm grumpy just remembering it!

I'm burnt out on running...HELP!

Bone said...

Hey, I ran a race this weekend. Where were you?

LB- Maybe I can give you some suggestions. These are things that help me out...

1. Read something that inspires you. I like to read RunnersWorld.com.
2. Enter a race. Even if you don't think you are shape do it anyway. Sign up for a race that's a month way...it will get you running. Also, it will remind you that you liked to run.
3. Running partners are always helpful, because they push you to run when you don't want to run.
4. Take a break. Maybe you need a break from running...try swimming during the summer.

Bone- You ran another race! I'm so proud of you!!! What race did you run? How did you do?
