Five on Friday #60
UNOI have a date with Monty today and I'm so unbearably excited. PS. Monty is the bicycle.
Apparently, in a past life, Ginger Beard was a bike mechanic? IDK what those people are called, so I just made that title up. Anyways, he brought over a magical device to blow up Monty's tires and then spent an additional 30+ minutes adjusting Monty's pieces making him better. I tried to tell him that Monty was just for the tri, but he wouldn't listen.
His dedication to my problems was very much appreciated. Now I just have to get better at riding the bike (in a week). I was WAYYYY better at cycling when I was 13.
PS. I've already decided that if Monty gives me problems, I'm just going to run the bike portion of the tri. #whohaveIbecome
PPS. I became friends with Ginger Beard on FB. I haven't decided if I was ready for that or not.
DOSI didn't get to finish reading Saint Anything before the due date and I really wanted to. I'ma book club failure. Oh well. Life has been getting in the way of reading and well, life has been getting in the way of a lot of things, so I've just accepted it. I guess what this really means is blogging>reading, so you're welcome, Gentle Readers.
I do hope to finish it before the Show Us Your Books linkup next week though, so there's that.
This does mean that I probably won't add the newest book to my reading list since I've already got too many books to read.
Also, if I had time to spend at the computer that wasn't for work (haha) or checking FB which seems to take me longer now that I have less friends (since I'm actually interested in the stuff most of these people share, I click on more links), I'd probably acquire more audiobooks because now listening to music when I run isn't as satisfying. This is primarily due to ads on Pandora (which I use because it uses less data than Spotify and because I mostly like the music I get from the stations I set to shuffle) but also because time seems to pass faster when I'm invested in something vs songs that I've already heard a mabillionty times.
TRESThe world decided to get together and release all new music on Fridays a few weeks ago. I hate this. I used to look SOOO forward to new music Tuesdays. Now I have to wait until Fridays and I'm rarely at work for a full day because flex hours, which means less music listening... and because I often need things to look forward to during the work week besides Tasty Tuesday.
QUATROTeh Wisconson Blond mentioned something about his getting a massage and now I'm jonesin' for a massage... or a pedicure.. but probably both. I need to find somewhere between work and home (or relatively close that isn't in Mt. Pleasant) to get a moosage (that's how I saw massage every time in my head). Time to check out LivingSocial/Groupon!!!
**I searched "massage" in giphy and I had to share this gem with my Gentle Readers because I'm still horrified.**
What the fuck is happening there and WHYYYY??
Happy Friday, Gentle Readers.
Linking up with these ladies since it's FFFFRRRRRRIIIIIIDDDDAAAAYYYY!!!!!!!!!
