tagbacks are hell

legion, you little rascal, i so do read your griping.

it took me more than a month to do so, but i plead temporary insanity of two kiddos in the house and no velcro.

hope you are recovering from your dehydration.

i am still not running. well, that's not true. i ran last weekend--last sunday???--for 20 minutes. very very very slowly. i was tired. couldn't even do two miles. but at least i did more than one. and i walked the rest. for my first time out in more than seven months or so, i was pleased with the result. now to get out there more than once a week. sigh.

i am considering doing some pilates work at home to start strengthening my core a little more. syd is tipping the scales near 30 lbs these days and still likes to be picked up and carried from time to time. my back doesn't like this so much.

more things to say?

i'm excited about the impending harry potter release, although it looks LONG. hope i can stay awake.

my writing class is going well. when i feel more comfortable with the format, i will post some fallout from that.

i've been reading televisionwithoutpity for kicks. when i have time. I love Grey's Anatomy.

i would kill for a dinner out right now. with marc would be great. with another adult would be okay. see previous post for reasons why.

i linked to you. and to tracy. hope that's okay!

I've never colored or chemically altered my hair in any way.

It looks like you may have a blog spammer. Who the heck is farah? ;)

Just so you know, if you go to your options you can set preferences that only allow people who actually come to your page to make comments, that way you can eliminate spam like the above. The setting makes you have to type in a random word that shows up on the page when you comment.

Glad to hear about the run! That's awesome. Start small and build. There is absolutely no hurry. I haven't done squat in three weeks and just got back to doing things this past week and none of them was longer than 30 minutes. :D

I like your 7 list. But you should warn Tracy. Now that she's on your blogger links I'm going to start tagging her. :P

me no know "tagging" beyond the world of aerosol paint art. to tag is to leave a single-line graffiti signature, sometimes in marker or acid-etching (as on windows).

i know someone named farah.

but spam sucks. is a decent place to try your literary quotes out.

memory is useless!
