she's a maniac, maniac, on the floor

Heidi and I went running a little bit ago, because the weather has gotten a teeny bit nicer and we're trying this new thing where we don't sit like useless blobs on the sofa when the sun is shining. However. When we left for our run, it was overcast and windy and just a little bit cold. But then! As we hopscotched over goose poop on the sidewalk, the clouds parted and the sun came out and was all, "hey, bitches, how you been?" The sun is not very polite, you see.

So, we ran. We ran so far away. We just ran. We ran both night and day. Jennie, stop. Anyway. We got to a point and stopped to walk and that's when we almost passed out from heat exhaustion. Heidi had a t-shirt underneath her long-sleeved shirt, so she simply took off her long-sleeved shirt. And wrapped it around her neck like a cape, I might add. But I thought I was a goner, because I was wearing my long-sleeved shirt UNDER my t-shirt. I figured I'd have to leave it on, unless I wanted to take both shirts off and flash the entire neighborhood and I really didn't want to do that. But then I remembered Flashdance and thought maybe, just maybe, I could pull the bra trick with my long-sleeved t-shirt and like two years later, I did it! Wow. That story was lame. Sorry.

I have more impressive news. Today is March 31st, which means I have posted random crap for all of you to read EVERY DAY for THREE STRAIGHT MONTHS. And if you don't think that's some sort of accomplishment, then I don't want to know you anymore.


  1. Oh, all right. I'm impressed. Really!

  2. You know what would be a really bad ass superpower? Being able to do all the tricks (bra and otherwise) from 80s movies. (That includes the evil dancing from Footloose.)

  3. iron fist, thank you! At least one person is impressed by my meager skills.

    h!a! you know that part in Footloose when Kevin Bacon is so emotional that he just HAS to dance? Awesome.

  4. i guess Heidi skipped out on my cycling class for your superhero flashdance shinanagans. Bastards!

  5. Peefer . . . huh?

    Tam, in her defense, she only went running because she got home from work too late to make it to spinning. True story.
