Mish Mash

Before today's post, I just have to get this off of my chest. It annoys me when people on cooking shows take a bite of the food they just prepared and look as though they're having a foodgasm. Annoying. I mean, YOU made the food, doesn't it stand to reason that you'd like it? Duh.

And a second rant, I can't stand Giada De Laurentis. In this Food Network commercial, her two favorite foods are two of her recipes. That smacks of pompousness.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming: I finished my run for today, and it was lovely. Well, ok, maybe not lovely, but it was better than yesterday, except I went slightly further up yet another hill. I was determined that I wasn't going to walk up the hill that's at the very end of my run (hereafter known as Heinous Hill), and I didn't. I kept telling myself, "You're a runner darn it, a hill is not going to beat you"! It's about 1/3 of a mile, 90 feet up. If you wonder how I know that, check out, and add the elevation (bottom left). Very cool.

It's only slightly ironic that I thought that, since when I was in labor with the Look Alike, I kept telling myself, "A contraction is not going to beat me". I'll be honest though, About half way up I kept repeating "Jesus, Jesus". Not in a blaspheming way, of course. In a "holy crap, I'm not sure I'll make this" thing. I'd LOVE to know what the people who live on Heinous Hill thought.

So I have survived day two. Tomorrow I don't run, that's for Saturday. Which is good, because tomorrow is my 6-week port-partum visit. Bring on the scale, people!

I just clicked over to your site from your Chic Critique guest post from a while back. I laughed out loud when I read your comment about the Food Network and the foodgasms -- it is so true! And Giada deLaurentis is the most dramatic about it. Everything is "luscious, creamy, with a little crunch" (and that's just the first thing she says, then she adds in as many other adjectives as she think up). I've often wondered, does she do that at the dinner table? Or out at a restaurant? Thanks for the laugh!
