Evening Running Again

I slept in again this morning instead of running, which means that I’ll be running when I get home from work this evening, or maybe this afternoon because really, who wants to work a full 6 hour day anyway? Not me, that’s who. You might be thinking that I should have learned my lesson in yesterday’s post, but if you’re thinking that then it’s like you don’t even know me at all! Learning from your mistakes is for history teachers and people who are too weak to make the same mistakes twice. Me? I like to make the same mistake several times before I learn from it, that way it really sticks, kinda’ like taking the same class several times because you flunked it the first 3 times. Who do you think knows more about economics, me or the guy that only took it once?

I guess I’m kind of in a running funk right now and not the good kind of funk. If anyone has any ideas that might motivate me then be sure to send them my way, and send them repeatedly since I probably won’t catch on the first few times.

Daily DNC Report
The number of cops here in Denver has increased significantly, or maybe they’ve just been more visible in the past couple of days. They’ve been pretty congenial, even posing for pictures with kids and tourists on several occasions. You literally can’t walk 20 yards without passing a group of SWAT cops decked out in riot gear. It’s been difficult to maintain my regular practice of mouthing something like “you filthy pig” from under my disdainful glare to each and every one of them, but I’ve struggled through. What else am I going to do with all the righteous indignation that has welled up inside me based partially on my own experience but mostly on movies depicting cops as bad apples who enjoy abusing their power, and flexing their authority to compensate for their teeny, tiny... intellects. What? You thought I was going to say something else there? Also, when did The Rock become a SWAT cop?

Can you smell what the SWAT is cooking?

There are so many groups out there trying to get their message out that you really need to turn on your BS filter before heading out the door. Or if your BS filter is not very good (i.e. you’re gullible or a moron) then you can always get some glasses like these that will filter it out for you.

It’s kind of hard to see, but the girl with the BS glasses is also wearing a neon pink sticker at the bottom of her shirt, right next to where I annoyingly branded the picture. It says “Make Out, Not War.” Michael Phelps (far left, red shirt) is not impressed. I always thought it was “make love, not war” and frankly that’s much more poetic and makes me think of Michael Jackson’s duet with Paul McCartney where he tells him “Paul, I think I told you, I’m a lover not a fighter.”

When I first saw this ostrich (see below), I thought we were going to get a demonstration from the bird porn people, maybe something like this, but I guess not. Boy, I hope that link doesn’t get me into hot water with the bird porn people. If it matters I didn’t get aroused at all watching that video.


  1. I am too scared to click that link. Do I even want to know? LOL

    Also why does The Rock have the plastic cuffs on/in his crotch? Please honey . . . . :P

  2. DNC nothing, tonight is the Fantasy football draft.

  3. Taking candy from a small child or swiping a purse usually light the ‘running fire’ within me, especially if the Rock and his posse are in hot pursuit. Absent a desire to commit a crime, start running with a friend and forget the Garmin.

  4. Dan, shhhhhhhhh! I was hoping to distract everyone and then get all the good players.

  5. I bet that ostrich could outrun you.

  6. Running funk? I think it's called the end of summer. This, too, shall pass.

  7. Too did a YouTube search looking for Bird Porn, didn't you?


  8. Seriously, making out is for non-experimental adolescents. Now, ostrich sex on the other hand ...

    Have a fine holiday. Run well and drink well. And if you don't feel like running, drink more.

  9. I think you have it wrong. I believe MJ said: McCauley, I think I told you, I’m a lover not a fighter.”

  10. Denver is starting to look like San Francisco... very strange.

    So confess, Vanilla! Why were you out on the street taking pictures instead of joining the throng (is throng the word I want?) inside the stadium to hear the speech?

  11. LMAO! Although, I didn't click on the link, either... I was afraid.

    I can't help you with motivational ideas, but if you need any more excuses- I've got a million of 'em.

  12. I DID click on the link, and may have to do it several more time to "get it"...
