All Out of Love


Ten miles in the rain. That'll be good for the cold.

OK, not ten miles in the pouring rain. Ten miles in drizzle, cold, sun showers and some wind. But still, ten miles. Ten not very fun miles. Last long run before the half-marathon on the 3rd. Next week I'll do some more hill-running as a taper.

Definitely not doing the Chinatown New Years run. I didn't have a lot of fun doing last year. I don't have anyone to do it with, and I've already got the t-shirt from doing it last year so there's not much incentive.

Newspaper notes:

Two stories in the front section of Saturday's Chronicle with quotes from the same woman--I think it's a woman, but I could be wrong. I just found it interesting. Obviously I have too much time on my hands when I'm at brunch or I just pay too much attention to the Chronicle.

#1-Aunt kills self, young siblngs in traffic
"There are not many other scenarios I can think of that are as tragic as this one," District Attorney Gerry Leone said.

#2-'Most eligible bachelor' found not guilty of attempted rape
"We were confident in the case we put before the jury, but we must respect their decision today and we thank them for their service to the commonwealth," prosecutor Gerry Leone said in a statement.

If anyone in the Cambridge area sees Gerry, give her a hug. She seems to be having a rough week.

And is it me, or do both of these stories sound like a CSI or an L&O episode?


Hair Day & Mint

The hair looks great. Sebastian is a genius AND he's now on the Torchwood bandwagon as well, having been given KKBB by his friend David. He's NOT completely gaga over John interestingly enough. Thinks he's good-looking, good actor, singer etc. Loves the Jack character, but Sebastian is just NOT into white guys and one thing Mr. Barrowman is is whiter than white.

At the Mint, we were treated to a reading of the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet by Ben the Bartender and Daddy Dave, who has finally lost the pornstache.

It was nice and mellow and I sipped (appropriately) mint tea to keep warm because it's been fucking freezing around here.

Song List for Sunday night:
I Want You To Want Me-Cheap Trick
What Is Love-Haddaway
Dawning-Jay and the Americans
I'm Still Here-Follies (There was a show-tune/Diva fest going on so I had to contribute.)
Redemption Song-Bob Marley

Hubby hung around taking pictures for a while. Presumably those who want to get on stage and sing don't mind having their pictures taken. WE got home around 8PM and finished watching the 1st season of Carnivale on DVD. Weird. Weird. And more weird.

LOVE TO F-LIST, especially those suggested that my life would be better with Firefox than Internet Explorer. It had been suggested before and I'd resisted, possibly because one person who suggested it was Former Soul Mate. Now I've switched and I'm pretty happy, especially about being able to beef up the font size when reading LJ, plus the tab thing.

Special thanks to beta_goddess for keeping me company in the sandbox this weekend.

And join me in welcoming njzynj to LJ! (Waves, blows horn, throws confetti!)

I let my Sendspace account lapse for awhile and not surprisingly, my files have gone bye-bye. Sendspace advises me that it's been too long and most of them are history! The Marianne Faithful song that goes with Collision Course is still there, but the Barrowman Cole Porter album and all the Halloween playlists are now garbage.

I'll redo the Barrowman ASAP because that's a valuable recruiting tool and the Halloween playlists as I get a chance.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

ETA-John Barrowman Swings Cole Porter is once again available HERE .
If you feel like wanking about the propriety of file-sharing, go ahead but you might want to read the discussion and start it up again only if you have something new to add to the discourse.

Meme a day 2008-Day 21-What Movie is Your Love Life Like?

Ganked from babykid528, all-around wonderful person and Meme Princess.

Your Love Life is Like Annie Hall

"A relationship, I think, is like a shark. You know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies."

You believe that love (if you even believe in love!) is a very complicated thing.
Maybe love is pain. Or maybe it's all a big therapy session. You're still figuring it out.

Your love style: Brainy and a bit neurotic

Your Hollywood Ending Will Be: Realistic and reflective
