Ok, so it’s been a bit busy the past few days. I’m sorry there was no Weekend Update. Folks, there just wasn’t time for me to sit down to post. I will say I had a great weekend and a wonderful Valentine’s Day. I spent my VDay doing a lot of “me” things. For instance, I ran a race, went to aerobics, ate brunch with my family, and then went to the movies. See, all things I like to do! Since I couldn’t give you your weekly dose of Weekend Update, I thought I’d give you some Ramblings.
Last night OKC Thunder, formerly Seattle Super Sonics, unveiled our mascot. It’s a Bison. I don’t really understand why a bison is our mascot. How does that go with Thunder? It doesn’t. I guess I should be happy it’s not something silly like Lily the Lighting. I mean, that would totally make us the laughing stock of the NBA. OH wait, we already are the laughing stock of the NBA.
As I mentioned earlier I ran a race on Saturday. It was not pretty. Sometimes I go to these races and feel like the most out of shape in shape person. The race was five miles, which should have been doable. However, I forgot that this park has random huge hills throughout the whole park. When I hit the half way mark I thought to myself…..I hate to run, and this is stupid. I don’t think I’m going to run the race next year. I hate this particular race, but every year I sign up. I blame it on the fact that they give out great shirts and have good food after the race. But I did win a $25 gift card to a local running store. SOOO the race wasn’t a total waste.
This weekend I discovered a new show, The Millionaire Matchmaker. It’s on Bravo. I’m telling you, Bravo has some great shows. Now true; they only have about three shows on their network but its pretty good stuff. I guess that just goes to show you that quality is more important than quantity.
Friday night I had great plans. I was going to eat dinner and watch a movie. I invited a new recipe that I was excited to try. I combined pasta, chicken, fresh tomatoes, some spices, and oil. I thought it was going to be a successful recipe. However, it was a recipe that was pretty bland. I was upset about the whole ordeal. First, I was starving and banking on the meal to be wonderful. Second, I was pissed I’d wasted chicken and pasta on a horrible dish. But since I’m a pretty stubborn person, I ate the bland meal. I hate wasting food, so it was a given that I was going to eat the stuff. Oh and the movie, Becoming Jane. It was good, it’s about Jane Austin. Did you guys know that Jane Austin never got married? I know! I guess if Jane Austin can go through life as a bachelorette, than so can I.
Well folks, sadly my Ramblings must come to an end. My stomach is growling and I need some breakfast. It’s time for some oatmeal!
