Cutting Back

On caffeine that is.

For a few personal reasons I am trying to cut way way back on my caffeine intake. The main one just being that I don’t like being that dependent on anything. I let the coffee/diet coke/fat free triple shot latte/chai tea intake explode and so I am bringing it way back […]

What the FUCK Are You Doing Upstairs?


Remember awhile back I posted about some sawing noise in the upstairs apartment going on at 4:30am? It’s been happening on and off since then and we still have no idea what is going on. Maybe there is some friskyness going on…but really? At 4:30 in the morning (it’s always between 4:30 & 5am)? […]

Sunday Run Review

Not that there is much to review but might as well get in the habit. Yesterday after much procrastinating and laughing about nothing inparticular we headed out for our “long run” or “only run of the week”.

We decided to stick around the neighborhood because we wanted to go downtown and didn’t want to take […]

Who’s Tired of Me Talking About Weather?

I am! ooooh me!!! It’s really really dull.

So fine. So this is a running blog, we used to run. We’ve gotten slacky…..so, it’s time to do something about it.

Last night we signed up for the Shamrock Shuffle 8K in Chicago as well as the Flying Pig 1/2 marathon at the beginning of May. […]

Friday Fun and Saturday Laziness

Last night after an annoying drive downtown to pick up Jason from work we headed to see Cloverfield with our friends Jake and Laura. It was *really* good. I’m not going to say anything about the movie, but I do recommend it.

After the movie we all came back here and between Jake, Jason and […]

It Makes That Noise

You know…THAT noise. The one where after it snows and then it gets to single digit temps and then you walk on the snow…and it makes that noise, like nails on a chalkboard. Yeah that one. I hate that fucking noise.

According to Tom Skilling (weather man extraodinair) however, it looks like we’ll be warming […]

Heath Ledger

Apparently the NYC police found Heath Ledger dead in an apartment in Manhattan this afternoon. He was such a talented actor. How sad.

Playing House

Yesterday evening Jason and I came out to Brookfield to help out with the son of friends of our family. His parents are in LA and so we are here making sure he gets dinner and all that good stuff. They have a great house in Brookfield and it’s been fun hanging out here. This […]

It’s Cold in this Apartment

I hate being cold. I mean everyone does I guess. But once I get cold I feel like I cannot warm up. Our apartment has the worst heating ever designed and so most of the rooms are freezing even though the stupid apartment temperature thermometer is right next to the heater and so when it’s […]
