Sorry this is going out so late in the day. I know I've "ruined" my brother-in-law's day by not having it posted in a manner that allows him to read it from work. Oh well. Snippet Wednesday and I are officially failures!
I was so ticked off this morning when I logged on to Twitter and saw that somebody had ruined the "shocker" ending to last night's NCIS: Los Angeles. Didn't even put "Spoiler Alert" on the Tweet. Just all right there for the world to see. ARGH!
The other day, I was walking around during my lunch break with my camera snapping a few photos when I saw a couple of high school guys doing the same thing. We kinda did the whole "fellow photographer" nod in passing. But, later, we actually crossed paths and spoke. I said "hey" to them and they said "hello, sir" to me. SIR? Me? Christ, am I so old that a couple guys in ragged camouflage and Jonas Brothers haircuts are calling me "sir"? Damn.
Okay, week one of morning workouts yielded 7.5 miles of running. Week two yielded 7.25 (I had trouble on Thursday and we didn't run at all on Friday; just weight lifting). But so far this week, I've already run 6.5 miles and Katie's at 7 miles. Woo hoo! Katie actually hit 3 miles yesterday. That's awesome and I'm so proud of her. And we've still got two days of workouts left.
I was putting some stuff in the attic yesterday when I decided to dig out some of my old office toys that I had stashed away. On occasion, I had purchased a Lego set or two and some of them were stored away when I got tired of looking at them. Well, I decided I wanted to find my Speed Racer Lego sets from a couple years ago for use in a Stormin' Norman idea I had. I looked everywhere in the attic and couldn't find them at all. I looked in a few other non-attic places and zilch. I have no clue where they could be. How do Lego sets up an disappear? Madness I tell you!
I love when classic toys make comebacks. And one such toy has been the good ol' Mr. Potato Head. He saw a resurgence thanks, I believe, to the Toy Story franchise of movies. And then they started doing specialized tie-ins to other movies and whatnot such as Star Wars (Darth Tater, Spudtrooper, and Artoo-Potatoo), Indiana Jones (Idaho Jones and the Taters of the Lost Ark), and Transformers (Optimash Prime and Bumble Spud). Well, I discovered last week, when checking out Jon Favreau's Twitter account, that they have a Tony Starch Potato Head for Iron Man 2. Way cool. My office mate picked one up for her desk which has prompted me to dig out my Darth Tater. Yeah, another reason I was up in the attic.
I think I might have to pick some slightly easier lyrics for next week's Kapgar Photo Scavenger Hunt. I'm having trouble coming up with photos and I'm the freakin' guy who picked the clues. Sheesh!
Time for bed. *yawn*
