blogging rocks

Thanks to everyone, (C, D, K & A especially) who gave me the best boost this week when I needed it. Isn't it funny how something we slam as being impersonal and artificial (I speak of the internet) can actually act to strengthen relationships instead? Not to be too sappy, but I am constantly amazed by people I meet day to day or have known for years. That is one (of many) of the nice things about getting older. OK, don't want to draw this out too long because I am so not a philosopher, but thanks again, peeps!

Oh, and I discovered last night during a run in 70° weather (thank you, Ike) that Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" is the most motivational running song ever.

Musical side note: When the ladies and I were on the swim team in HS, I think our favorite psych up song was Right Now by VanHalen. And that was in the days before iTunes, so I actually bought this freaking expensive VanHalen double CD at Northern Music just for that one song. I still remember the smell in there... ANYWAY, did anyone else notice that during the RNC it was the theme song for Cindy McCain's introductory video? Ewww! I was grossed out. Bet VanHalen was, too. Almost as sacriligeous as the peppy remix of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" they played during my pilates class last week. Again, I'm getting old.

I thought "Blister in the Sun" was our psych up song. I jest, I jest, but I do love realizing in retrospect that we were all part of the angs-ridden, apathetic, flannel shirt/doc martin wearing high school-in-the-90s era, and yet we still bought Van Halen CDs. And, we didn't even buy them in an ironic "I'm buying a Van Halen CD" way....

PS - I can only run 3 miles, so you are my hero.

Erin - don't we know someone who knows someone from Heart? Or am I on crack.

Leah - Actually Blister in the Sun is on my running mix now! So is Gone Daddy Gone (VF and Gnarls Barkley versions). I remember being upset that I had to buy that stupid cd. But you gotta do what you gotta do when you're a Lady Stoner.

We are the Stoners and the stoners are great!

On a side note, keeping in mind that I usually hate all stickers for cars, the people here are REALLY big into (high) school pride, and display in on their cars. For about 27 seconds, I totally wished I had a tiny, little stoner decal for the back of my car window...

I have a few VF songs on my iPod, too.

Oh, and then I realized that they are REALLY big into vanity plates, too.

It passed. I think. Hmmm.
