I miss my Grandma Dorothy.
Boze cos Dorotka...
As I posted earlier, I did the Mpls Recycle Run on the 20th of April. For not having done any serious running yet this year I did ok. I ran it in about 38minutes or a 12:13 pace. Gives me some numbers to plug into for a goal when I run another 5k later this year. Not sure which one will fit into my schedule yet but I will be looking.
So. I just got a call on my celly, wrong number as usual. I mean I bet I get about 4 wrong number calls a day. usually it's a damn fax trying to send over the phone.
Pet peeve #134 - Fax beeps on my voicemail.
Anyway, I answer my phone with a cheery "Hello".
I get a pause and then a male voice with, "Who is this?"
anyway we sort out the wrong number business and then we hang up but I am left thinking about how fucking rude people are.
If you call someone, ANYONE, then when they answer your first answer should be a hell of a lot nicer than, "Who is this?" or Kat's favorite, "Whodis?"
so...do you have a cellphone pet peeve?
The girls had their first swimming lessons of the year, mommy had to go with The Deuce for her class. I came along and decided to do a little light running. Figured it would be a good idea to try and run once or twice before my 5k this weekend. I did a mile really slow. 10 minutes, but I felt strong in the legs and strong in the lungs. I was worried the knees would rebel against me but they chose to toe the party line and be strong for the "warm up" run. The 5k isn't about racing as much as it is a catalyst for me to get off my ass and do something to get in shape. There is another in August that I will also be attending.
Eventually I will get my time down to a nice cozy 8 minute mile for competitions. It's always fun to see a 200lb guy cruising around the track doing 2 minute laps all day long...makes peopel stop and stare, then push themselves that much harder.
You know me, I am all about motivating people, now if only I could try motivating myself...
We all know that LJ puts little writer block bits up now to help us get the juices flowing,and they are actually pretty good bits. Here is the first one that I found post worthy, loyal subjects.
What is the one thing you are most neurotic about?
so go on...answer. I am still in the middle of self analysis on this one.
