Austin Girl

i'm a mommy, a supportive wife (mostly), a loving daughter, a lazy but well-meaning friend, a texan, a reformed party girl, a slacker, a seeker, a chameleon, a reluctant L.Alien, trying to find the meaning of life in los angeles.

Jackson 5 vs. the Osmonds

found this link interesting. check out the comparitive pictures toward the end. i'm a closet donny osmond fan you know. my cousin E and i were mad for him starting about age 5 and 6. lived for the donny and marie show. had purple socks. read tiger beat magazine. couldn't get enough donny. i think my first non-kid music record album was donny. wanted to marry him. E and i even wrote a "play" starring donny, E and your's truly. on roller skates, no less. if only we had a copy.

bloggity boggity blog

just felt like i should make an entry today. it is a grey and dreary friday in los angeles. the day after st. patty's. oh the days when i could just pop on over to the pub after work for cold stout guinness. that was pre-kid. but on the up side, no hangover today. we watched napoleon dynamite for the third time last night, this time with our neighbor. i find it infinitely amusing. and netflix rules!!! i resisted for a long time, but finally gave in since we are resistant to cable.

just found out i've been abandoned by my right hand woman at work. i'm so sad. felt betrayed. was angry. cried. went through all of the grieving emotions. finally i've accepted it. i suppose. she's only moving down the hall to another division, so it's not too terrible. but i'm screwed work-wise. i'm still in mourning.

ok. now it is raining again in los angeles. i can't believe how much rain we've had this year. the first three years we were here we barely saw any at all. it is POURING. waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

this is sort of a blue post, so i give up for now.

Run Hit Wonder 10K
2004 Posted by Hello

the countdown begins....

so i mentioned before that half marathon i was planning to run last year and didn't. i thought i was done with it. through. out of my mind. not so fast. i got the registration form for this year's event, with the payment section marked out- "payment carryover from 2004" written very boldly next to it. now the pressure's on. i had already written off that $40 registration fee. but now i'm feeling the guilt. will i start training again? will i actually get off my duff and start running, or even walking? will i ever lift a weight again? (does picking up the kid count?) will have to wait and see. it won't be tomorrow.
