Random Friday

Just throwing out some random thoughts for a Friday. Last night was awesome. Sister-in-law-once-removed (hereafter referred to as Sil1x) came over. Sil1x is awesome. She came over to help me decide between two dresses I bought for a couple of weddings I'm going to this year. The dress trying on and evaluating part took about seven minutes. Sil1x hung out with me for a little more than an hour and a half. We were chatting, snacking (Sil1x loves me the most for my extensive supply of snacks, she just shops the kitchen.), watching the first part of Grey's. She voiced her opinion on the dresses, and I agree with her recommendation. I need one more opinion before I send back the dress I like least. I love that Sil1x lives about 3 minutes away on foot. Tonight I am going to have dinner at my parents'. My mom has this thing. Whenever she gets an idea in her head, it has to be executed NOW if not sooner. Mom decided she wants new Crocs. I bought her a pair last year and suggested she wear them when she's gardening and such. Mom LOVES her Crocs. She loves them so much she kinda wore them out. I don't understand why she can't go buy them herself, but she's insistant that I go with her. I said Okey dokey, whenev, hoping it would die off. Nope. She called and called again until I agreed to go with her tonight after work. I might get a new pair out of it. I'm thinking flip-flops. But still, not how I was wanting to spend my Friday night. I am down on internet dating. I haven't tried Match.com or Eharmony or anything decent yet, but the cheaper smaller sites suck. I hate the false sense of bravado otherwise nerdy dudes get when hiding behind the keyboard. I think I am not venturing down this road again, and taking a break entirely again. Stupid men suck. If anyone has any suggestions on meeting non-stupid non-sucky men, I'm all ears. I've walked to work from the train station twice this week. It's been difficult, and I've gotten these terrible pains in my shin. I looked up a walking website or two and they recommended stretches to help work my shins, and advised to dial down the walk. This walk is a little better than a mile. It's a nice walk, and good exercise. Of course, next week it's going to be about 30 degrees in the mornings, so I'm undecided about the walking. I refuse to walk back after work, because when it's time to go home, it's just time to go. That's all for now. Perhaps I'll have something witty to say later.

I know what you mean by the internet dating thing. The best thing you can do is take a break and then come back up for air. I know everyone says it -- but it's all about timing.

I used to get hurt shins from lots of walking in college.

someone told me that tapping your feet is a good shin exercise. And you can do it anywhere! It really worked for me. But maybe it's all in my head.

Confessional Mondays!!!

Von said...

Yes, Dear, I've already confessed.

K- I will try a little foot tapping. It could help with the shin trouble, plus others find it annoying, so I'm all over that!
