Jersey Shore: I just want to put out there my general disgust for this show. I would have rather stuck a hot needle in my eye than watch this, but I did tune in the other day to see what it was all about. I lasted all of 3 minutes. MTV has sunk to all kinds of different lows over the years, and that they can even still call themselves “Music Television” is a disgrace, but this show takes the cake. First of all, yes Seaside is trashy, but that is exactly why they picked it. Why not pick a nice shore like Avalon or even Red Bank? And of course MTV scoured the state of NJ (and NY, although they won’t tell you that) to find the cockiest, most disgusting versions of people they could find. And they succeeded. In the small segment I personally watched, a guy who called himself “the situation” was going on and on about how everyone should love him. I just wanted him to put a shirt on. It was awful. And for those of you who have seen this show and think that it is a real account of NJ, I am here to tell you that is just not true.
Winter workout gear: I need it. Bad. I have one (only one!!) pair of pants and just a handful of long-sleeved shirts. Nothing to wear when it gets super cold and considering I will be training for the Donna 1/2 marathon all throughout winter, I am going to need some new clothes. The thing is, pants are really (read: extremely) hard for me to find. I have checked all the local athletic stores to no avail! It seems they don’t make anything for short people! It is beyond frustrating because I do not want to spend my whole winter inside on a treadmill! I order a lot of clothes off line, but never pants because I do not want to deal with returns- any suggestions (especially from my fellow short girls!) for sites/brands that you think would be helpful would be very appreciated!
Bloggy Pollyanna: J over at Morning Runner was kind enough to set up a bloggy Pollyanna and I was matched up with Janice. And I found her a fabulous gift and I am so excited! I am really bad at getting to the post office (just ask Felice, winner of my give-a-way that took me forever to mail!) but I promise to get your gift in the mail tomorrow. 🙂
Okay bloggies…I am in the home stretch- the semester ends on Thursday and then it is time for some R&R&R…Run, Rest and Relax. I cannot wait to get back on track! Hopefully I haven’t lost too many readers while on hiatus!
