I have ditched you this week and I apologize. This week has been very busy and weird for me, so I took a little blog vacation. Blogging seems to be the first thing to fall by the wayside when things are a bit crazy.
I also find it really difficult to write my first post after an extended break, because I seem to have gotten out of the habit.
But time to get back in the saddle! There are some things I would like to talk about that have nothing to do with each other, and here they are in no particular order.
The trackpad on my MacBook has been acting up lately and the hard click isn’t working properly. This does not make me happy. I mentioned in my post about how I draw my cartoons that I just do them using my trackpad. Now when I click and drag to draw something, the click doesn’t stay down, and it just stops mid-line (does that make any sense?). It’s annoying. So that cartoon post I promised you guys last week is not yet done, sadly. High five for me.
So for now I am using the “tap to click” option on my trackpad and I really do not prefer it. I don’t like how often I am accidentally clicking on things.
This is seriously hindering my Facebook creeping, because 90% of the time I’m on Facebook, I am looking at someone’s profile who I do not want to know I am looking at (that’s an awkward sentence, sorry), and I’m terrified I’m going to accidentally “like” one of their photos and alert them to my stalking. Big problems, big problems.
Speaking of Lori and Carl and The Walking Dead, I finally watched the season finale the other night with my friend Dawn and her fiance Mark. We basically had a running commentary throughout the entire episode, and I was going to do a recap of our thoughts (because I think we’re funny), but then I noticed that Cely did.
She covered every point we brought up: What’s with the mystery helicopter? How are the zombies so easily led? Why do Lori and Carl suck so bad? Why does Lori suddenly care where Carl is when she hasn’t pretty much this entire season?
Who is that kid who just got eaten, and why did he let that walker in the RV? Why are they not getting off the farm immediately? Why does no one have a plan for this type of situation? What is it about Daryl that makes him SO ATTRACTIVE?!
WHY ARE THEY STOPPING THE CAR?! Who is the person with the walker pets? What is up with the compound? What’s going to happen next?!
So Cely summed all this up, and she probably said it better and more funny than I could, so if you are a Walking Dead fan you should go check out her post.
DO NOT TALK TO ME ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES. I mean it. I am dying to see it and I can’t until next week. It’s killing me. Every time I log into Facebook or Twitter I am bombarded with people raving on about how amazing the movie is, and how it is the best thing they’ve ever seen, and how great Peeta is and etc. etc. etc.
Great. Seriously, if you talk to me about it I will punch you in the face.
I am glad to hear it that’s getting rave reviews though. I’m so excited to see it! I may actually re-read the first book in the meantime.
I have not been running this week at all. I walked for about 10km the other day (no exaggeration), and my entire baby toe is a blister (again, no exaggeration). I can barely wear shoes, so I assume running would not be fun and I haven’t tried yet. I’m hoping to get back on that next week, and I guess I’ll just skip ahead a week in my 10k training plan? Should be doable.
I just squeezed in a workout with Dawn though. We just did the elliptical thing, and then did squats and a crazy arm workout. I do mean crazy. I’m not sure I can lift my arms above my head right now, which is a shame since I have a big night out tonight for my friend Joanna’s birthday (you may remember her birthday last year!), and I’d like my hair to look semi decent. Ah well, I’ll just comb it and hope for the best.
And okay! Now that I have broken the ice, hopefully I can get back into my regular blogging thang. Hopefully.
Hope you guys all have a great Saturday!
