Random Thoughts Thursday.

Hello and welcome to the randomness that is random thoughts Thursday! This is the day that we dish on all of the latest and greatest in rants/confessions/whatever!! It is a no judgement zone. Okay, I may judge you a little bit. It’s okay, feel free to judge me too. So…mostly no judgement zone then? I stand corrected.

Let’s get to it…

We are getting into that time of year again in Texas where the humidity is insanely thick and all of the big nasty bugs are out. I LOVE me some springtime temps but the one thing I don’t love about the warmer weather down here are the life sized flies flying around. I am constantly desperately trying to keep all of my doors and windows shut tight so one doesn’t fly into my car or home. And don’t even get me started about mosquitoes trying to bite me while running like I am some sort of caramel mocha crunch frappuccino. Apparently I am just that tasty.

If I see one more dog off leash I just may lose it. Why people think it is okay for their mutts to run free all willy nilly in a public place with people running around is completely beyond me? This and people who just block sidewalks walking really slow. Drives me absolutely freaking nuts. Lately I have just been jingling my keys at people walking all slow on the lake to tell them to move out of the effing way.

Okay, confession – I have a separate IG account that I don’t have anyone added but people that I don’t know that post FUNNY memes and videos. And I love to just log into it all incognito and find funny stuff to like. Hey, it is nice to take a break from the RUN/workout/I’m a hero IG account that is my main one. Some days I don’t want to see how many miles you ran or the 80th friend of mine that is currently pregnant. I love ya but need a break. K thanks.

I think it is perfectly acceptable to dance while working. Actually this makes my creative mind flow even more to be able to listen to music and dance while I work. Or WERK I should say. It’s okay my office mates totally get it and now ignore me because they are used to my A.D.D. quirks.

The other day I was uploading my Strava runs and I also have a “thing” where I have to post a pic even if it is like a screenshot of the song I was listening to on the run. Strava would NOT upload my pics and I swear time stopped for like 30 minutes. I also get agitated when my Garmin sync does not want to work. And then when it finally clicks and does start working again, I take a blissful exhale and all is well with the world. First world problems. You feel me.

A friend asked me what I was doing for my birthday (woohoo for the April babies! Mine is 4/26) and I seriously told her that my wish list had running and brunch on it. Done and done. Honestly I don’t know how people plan extravagant parties or outings for themselves over the age of 28? I mean hey I’m all for celebrating YOUR birthday but I feel shy throwing something for myself. Also I am entirely too lazy and don’t like that kind of attention. I DO know that running is definitely on the agenda though. It’s either run my birthday in minutes or miles like last year. We shall see. HA.

And that’s my time, y’all.

What are some of your random thoughts this week?

  1. With you on so many things: dogs off leash is so annoying (and dangerous!), I also have to post a pic with every run/blog post, I can’t focus on ANYTHING ELSE if Garmin isn’t syncing, and my perfect birthday would be a run and a nice meal.

  2. Everyone in NYC is super excited because we are finally getting spring weather. Mid to high 70s!!!!

    Do not even get me started with slow walkers. The thing that bugs me the most is text walkers. Ummmm, you can’t keep your eyes on the “road” while texting. Then some folks have a nerve to cop and attitude when they bump into YOU.

    LOL @ “Get yo sh*t, get yo sh*t, and GET OUT!!!”

  3. I feel the same way about my birthday. I often have something low key with just a few friends/family because I don’t care for too much attention. It’s usually just wine and a nice meal.
    Running and brunching sounds like a great way to celebrate.

  4. The birthday thing cracks me up. I don’t even tell people when my birthday is and my wife is forbidden from mentioning it if we happen to go out to dinner. I don’t ever need or want the party or attention. I may do something privately to mark the occasion but birthdays were just never a big deal to me.

    1. also enjoyed your random thoughts, some of which I almost did judge you for and then realized I do that stuff as well. Ha ha. So annoyed at people walking slow three people across on sidewalks.
