So remember how I said I know when I've pushed it too far? Yeah I got there yesterday *g* hahaha Not actually as far as I'd thought as I was fine today, but walking home after my run... Well you know when you've been trying to load a horse who's not afraid but doesn't want to get on the trailer -- eventually you pick the first foot up and put it down on the ramp, move over and pick up the next foot etc etc... That's pretty well how I felt - lift leg up, swing leg forward, put leg down. Rinse and repeat. Can we say excessive amount of lactic acid? *sigh* Ah well. On the plus side -- I did 4 of the 5km running. Half k walk break after the first and third km. No nausea this time so I was pretty thrilled about that. 4 more running days till I decide whether I can do the earlier of the two possible runs. I'm thinking it should be ok... But we shall see. Have to get rid of those walk breaks in there but should be ok. hahaha oh comeon we know realism isn't my thing :)

Miss Sienna's been off for a wk now :( Abscess. Not tragic, just enough to kill the last of the nice riding weather. Boooo.

The guys at work have been playing w/ the "I Am T-Pain" ap on the iPhone. Sort of entertaining to listen to :) This one is used to make people "good" singers -- in that it takes whatever sound it's given and either raises or lowers it to the closest true pitch. A variation of that used for actual singers for years to perfect their albums but taken to a whole new level w/ people who really can't sing at all. Think karaoke perfected *g* Except that if you're bad enough it doesn't know exactly what tone to match and you end up w/ a funky robotic voice... hahaha I guess the point is to sing along to select songs, but here they were just making stuff up as they went along.

So I've been reading a book that I'm currently drawn in with the same horrendous fascination that causes people to watch train wrecks. Just had to share this sample of the best of the worst. Premise, guy's leaving on an adventure, girl is bored and wants to join:
"'Probably the kind of adventure that ends in a mass burial.'
That quieted her down a little bit. But after a while, she said: 'Do you need transportation? Tools? Stuff?'
'Our opponent is an alien starship packed with atomic bombs,' I said. 'We have a protractor.'
'Okay, I'll go home and see if I can scrounge up a ruler and a piece of string.'"

hahahaha ok so the alien starship was bad enough (I mean really??? Hasn't that been done?) but fighting them off w/ a protractor... hahaha love it. And her response is just about perfect :) Just amused me enough to share. Don't know if I'll make it through said book or not, but I'm almost determined to try now...
