they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

because i'm cool.

i ran 10 miles on saturday. in 87 minutes. and other than when i stopped to walk for 20 seconds up this hill that was more like a mountain and was stationed smack in the middle of mile 6, i ran the whole thing.

then yesterday, i ran 3 miles. and this morning, 3 again. i'll be getting in a 4-miler in a few days and then a five-miler and then ... 11 miles on saturday.

in other news: b turns 40 in a month. and i've been racking my brain about what to get him. see, before the whole "no job thing" happened, i was planning a trip to mexico or italy or somewhere less exotic like chicago. but now, i'm planning dinner and a few well-thought-out unwrappable surprises. i hope he likes them.

and in semi-related news: i sold like four things on craigslist to be able to afford a pair of new running shoes. i need them because the pair i bought in june has 400+ miles on them and i'm prone to stress fractures in worn-down shoes. the new shoes are supposed to arrive today. i'm hoping the rain doesn't slow UPS down.

okay, back to searching (er...trolling) the job boards.
