Friday Fragments #8 (or is it 12?)....
*Started the Couch to 5K on Wednesday night. My plan is to run Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. It was BLAZING hot on Tuesday with 75% humidity. Newsflash: girlfriend isn't running in 75% humidity. But I got my arse up off the couch on Wednesday night and did day 1. I walked more than I ran, but I got up and out and for that I'm proud of myself.

*The 3-day is just around the corner. I talked with my van co-pilot, Angi the other day. I'm warning you...if Angi hijacks my blog, do not, under any circumstances believe what she tells you. This may or may not include a story about me...at a fraternity house...drinking trashcan punch (read: everclear alcohol)...and passing out in the men's bathroom. LIES.....ALL LIES.

*I feel bad because a classmate is making an $800 donation to our class reunion fund. In my hurry to answer e-mails I didn't even say "thank you!"....I asked how she was, that we were excited to see her and to make the check out to the class reunion account. I feel like a schmoe! I will be writing her a personal thank you note once that check comes in. *sigh*

*I love the show Iron Chef. The original Iron Chef. Chairman Kaga has the coolest shirts! Check it out! And is it just me or does he look a little like Michael Jackson?

*I love it when students feel that I need to do their work for them. Newsflash: you are responsible for your education, regardless of how frustrated you are with the classes, the professors or the policies.

*I'm not a "bed sheet snob" but we got some 350 thread-count sheets for free with the purchase of our bed. I'm sold. They are so darn soft!! I'm keeping my eye on the clearance racks for cheap sheets with a high thread-count.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

Congrats on your C25K start! It changed my life. :) Just remember, if you feel you need to repeat a week or a day or two, DO IT! I never in a million years thought I'd be a runner and now, I have 2 5K's under my belt and the tee shirts to prove it. It's a great feeling!

I'm VERY proud of you for moving in the c25k... moving, even if its slow in the heat, is a big deal!!!

That guy does look like an asian Michael Jackson.. is he hanging his kids out of a window anywhere?

a $800 donation? Awesome... but how sad that that would only cover 4 couples cost of tickets for my reunion... geez... I still cant believe they're charging $150 a couple!

The sheet comment is hilarious because last weekend I was at Marshall's and saw a 600 count King sheet set and thought of you!! Hmm... want me to text you next time? What's your price limit?

For the first time ever we bought 850 threadcount sheets a couple of years ago. We loved them so much that we wore them right out. By sleeping on them, that is. Sheesh.
