The Weekend That Went Too Fast

I’m not sure where this weekend went. It was a three day weekend for me and it felt shorter than some of my two day weekends. Good thing I have another one coming up. I may or may not be taking Friday off specifically to see Hunger Games before the crowds get too crazy. I realize that’s a lame reason to take off work, but any reason to take off work is a good one to me.

So here’s what’s been going on.

1.  I ran the Navy League 5k on Saturday. Or 4.8k. But who’s counting? Oh right, I am.

I ran 2.91 miles in 25:50, which is an 8:53 average pace. If it were an actual 5k and there was timing, that would have been about a minute or more PR for me. I like that all my paces were in the eights, if just barely. Not sure that’s ever happened before. I’ll have a little race review up this week after I steal some pictures from my co-workers.

2.  I saw this at the Publix checkout.

That makes total sense. Cover up the clothed picture of Megan Fox at adult eye level and keep the nudie Kate Walsh one down there for the kids. Way to think that one through, Publix.

3. Saturday night, our St. Patty’s plans fell through so hubs and I made the last minute decision to take a cab downtown to hang out at our favorite roof-top bar, Latitudes.

Actually, I had already curled my hair and there is no way I wasn’t going out when I finally put 5 minutes of effort into my appearance. Also, I love St. Patty’s Day. It’s the only day hubs will willingly wear the same color as me.  Normally, if he sees that we’re dressed in the same color, he’ll go change. Unfortunately, that kills my dream of being that cute old couple that dresses in matching outfits.

Anyway, we were at Latitudes for 5 minutes when an drunk older guy fell into us. We both tried to hold him up until he got his footing. Once he did, he thanked us and then went on a 10 minute rant about how Facebook and Twitter are stupid and a whole bunch of other things I don’t remember. At one point, he started insulting us because we hadn’t read some book he mentioned. I listened to him for awhile hoping he would shut up, but that wasn’t happening so I told him that we would have let him fall if we knew he was going to suck the fun out of the night. He didn’t like me much after that. He said goodbye to hubs and shook his hand but wouldn’t even look at me. Then he left to suck the fun out of someone else’s night.

4. Hubs and I watched Friends with Benefits yesterday.

This movie has been sitting on my coffee table for a month and a half. Why has it taken me so long to watch it? I looooooved it. JT is so damn charming and I loved all the casting in this movie – especially Woody Harrelson, Jenna Elfman, and that annoying kid from Modern Family who wasn’t annoying in this movie. LOVED IT. Have I mentioned I loved it? Also Mila Kunis is almost too good looking. It bothers me. But not as much as the thought of her dating Macaulay Culkin for 8 years. How did that happen?

5. I watched the Walking Dead season finale last night.

*SPOILERS if you haven’t watched the last few episodes*


So far I’ve read through Volume 4 of the graphic novels. Has anyone else read those? I find myself getting confused between what’s happening in the novels and what’s happening on the show. I swear last week when Rick killed Shane, I did not understand why he didn’t shoot him in the head after he stabbed him. Then the next day, everyone online was freaking out that someone could become a zombie that wasn’t bitten and I thought all the characters on the show already knew that. Nope. That’s in the novels.


Looks like next season, they find the prison which is a super cool part of the novels. Now I have to wait till the fall for new episodes where I will surely get confused again. But it’s worth it. I can’t decide if I like the novels or the show better. In the meantime, this site is keeping me entertained with all my Walking Dead needs.

  1. Ummm were you sooo raging pissed that you would have had a PR if the race hasn’t been short? I would be and I’m pretty pissed for you. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!!!! Congrats on PR-ing even though they screwed you! 🙂

      I would have been if I hadn’t already known it was an un-timed race. So there never would have been an official time anyway. But yeah, kinda sucks since I wasn’t really feeling it out there and I killed it. Next time! 🙂

  2. Hi. My name is Lori from the Walking Dead. I basically told Rick that he needed to kill Shane a few episodes ago, but reacted like he’d murdered a litter of puppies when he admitted that he did kill Shane in self defense. I’m an awful, awful character who needs to be dispatched with extreme prejudice next season.

  3. i will now be spending hours on that laughing dead website. homework is overrated 😉 the season finale last night blew my mind! that thing with andrea in the woods…oh snap. i don’t even know what to think

    how do you think the new season of american horror story will be? i think it’s weird that they are having an entirely different story line and some of the past cast members are coming back but playing different characters

      I’m not sure! I think they need to change it up like that to keep it going but I’m not sure how much I’ll like it. I’ll give it a shot though since that was the plan from the beginning. Hope they know what they’re doing!

    My husband is obsessed with that show! I can’t get into the whole zombie genre, but I am excited to find out “A” is on Pretty Little Liars, does that count? 😉

    I actually loved the show so much I had to read all of the books. Yes I’m almost in my 30’s and I can’t get over a mystery geared towards tweens. Ahhh the joys of feeling old.

    I’ve seriously been considering taking the day off of work for the Hunger Games. This post might just have put me over the edge. I think it’s a totally reasonable excuse to take off of work. Totally 😉

  6. I enjoy your lists so! Glad you finally watched Friends with Benefits. Was it not the best??? I, too, am considering taking Friday off for HG–and I’m probably going alone, so whatevs.

  7. Part of the reason I love my husband is that he gives in when I want to match! We don’t go all matchy matchy but we coordinate a lot. Ok, we will totally match the day of a race when we wear our race shirts. But that’s it. My mom and step dad are another story though. Same shirt every day. Seriously. Ron will ask my mom what shirt she’s planning on wearing and he’ll get out the same one. (Always race shirts…every day…I seriously don’t think they don’t own any non-race shirts.)

  8. Haha, oh Paula, you kill me. And gahhh, story of my life. I had the entire week off last week and who knows where the hell it went. It’s a mystery.
    And holy shit, you are a speed demon!

    I would just like to say, once again, that I love you and your hubs. You are my fave internet couple!

    One more thing – I had to skip your Walking Dead recap, I missed it last night! I heard the episode was crazy.

  9. Your hair looks super cute curly! Glad you had a fun night!

  10. haha i laughed at this whole thing.
    god I love JT too, he is marvelous isnt he.
    And you are so right with #2 (about the magazines) what sense does that make

  11. I’ve never read the novels but watch the show, now I kinda want to read the novels but lets face it, I’m a grad student –> no time to read for pleasure. Take this as an official request to post a synopsis on the novels cause I want to know what the heck’s going to go down in that prison! LOL
