what wonderful timing

it was a struggle this morning to lug myself out of bed.  it seemed to defy reason why anyone would want to leave the the warm and comforting comforter that lay on top of me.  i mean, that’s why they call it “comforters”, right?  it’s supposed to keep you comfortable.  why would you want to leave that?

but alas, some guilt about going into work made me get out and be good.  so i got up and got ready to go to work.  i remembered that i had to interview someone this morning, so i was walking into the office preparing myself to interview.

what i was not expecting was to be rushed by a bunch of people asking me if i wanted to start the interview because my boss was having some car troubles.  so i started the interview as soon as i walked in, unprepared.  oops.  oh well, i’ve interviewed enough people so it was fine.

i guess it was a good thing that i dragged myself out of bed this morning.

a long weekend

unlike pretty much everyone else i know, i had martin luther king, jr. day off today.  it’s my first official company holiday.  yay.

thanh and i hung out today to catch up since we haven’t seen each other in such a long time.  we got caught up with what’s been going on in each other’s lives and it was nice to be able to just chill.

i took paddy in to the vet today for a check up.  it seems that paddy is doing much better and has grown quite a bit since i last saw her.  she apparently gained 10 ounces in a week!  my sister’s dog is quickly growing up to her full potential of…4 pounds?  =P

also of note this weekend, i went running.  now, now, before you start laughing uncontrollably, let me repeat myself so that you do not feel like you’ve misread my previous statement.  i went running over the weekend.  yup, that’s right.  running.  me.  this weekend.

i went running for the longest distance i’ve ever run in my life.  that would seem like a rather impressive statement, but i’ve never actually run any farther than a mile (stupid middle school P.E.!!) so imagine my surprise when i found myself running this weekend.

i ran for a total of 1.7 miles, the distance from my apartment to a nearby starbucks.  christi got some coffee, i was coughing up a lung.  we walked the distance back to the apartment in the cool night air.  it wasn’t as bad as i thought it would be, but it certainly wasn’t as enjoyable as i thought it’d be either.  well, let me not kid myself, i never thought it would be enjoyable.

what a weekend.
