Thursday Thoughts

On Thursdays, I think about how awesome my dog and cat have it.  Gunner forcibly moved me off the couch last night, because I was in the spot he wanted to pass out in.  AND I LET HIM.  And really, I think it's adorable when my animals pass out anywhere, because it means that they are not terrorizing me for at least 5 minutes.

On Thursdays, I continue to ponder the perfection of this sign along the bike path near my work.  I ran on my lunch break yesterday, which I've never done before, and it was on that run that I found this sign.  I think this sign created some sort of magic for me, because despite the brutal wind, despite how hard it felt, I got back to the office feeling beyond fantastic.  And those good feelings held for the rest of my day.

On Thursdays I ponder how cool it is to swab your cheeks and register to be a bone marrow/blood stem cell donor.  Ammon thinks I have some strange obsession with giving up my genetic material, given I donated my eggs.  I had to pause at that, because he could be right.  However, I like to hope that it's just that people have really sad stories, and I like to help people find a happy ending.  I also ponder how PMS has brought me the world's most giant zit on my cheek.  Worst place for a zit ever.


  1. I learn something awesome about you every time I read your blog :)

  2. I've wanted to donate eggs for a long time! Tell me all about it.

  3. YOU'VE DONATED YOUR EGGS?! you are so cool.

  4. I also really think it's cool when my critters pass out wherever. I let them push me around all the time. I think it's cool that you like to donate all of your body! :)

  5. That's so cool that you've donated your eggs!!!! How awesome! I think you should do a post about it... or just tell me about it privately if you don't want to scream to the world how it works. :0

    And I have only gone running once this week. :( I did some cross training yesterday, though, and I plan on doing 3.5 today and my long run tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes! :)

  6. Ooh, I don't know is the cheek zit the worst, or right on the edge of one's nose? That might be a tie! Good for you for signing up to be a donor!


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
