i have to admit that i've been favoring the xanga over the blog...
but i have separation issues. I still blog here.

i think i've found a red sox fan who i can talk to...
the boys in the class are beyond my level.
but Alyssa is much friendlier :)
but her tv is not within walking distance. :(
BUT she has a car...and meebe if i share food...

then i can watch the next time Arroyo pitches...

i went running again. so proud of myself.

until i got lost...



oh well, this city girl is gettin' REAL familiar w/ those woods.

somehow, backtracking ain't so much fun as finding the trail.

Don't get me wrong. i love school. but these small groups sessions are NOT captivating...

my routine currently consists of me filling up the nalgene bottle before class at the fountain. b/c WHO wants to carry around 4 glasses of water at one time. it's HEAVY. my technique is perfected to fill it exactly to the 32 oz mark. Just depends on the angle.

During small group, I noticed that it take me 3 swallows to move down one mark or a quarter cup of water. Therefore, 12 swallows makes 1 cup and 48 swallows will finish off half the day's requirement for liquids.

Impressive, non?

and on other notes, I went running for the first time in a long time. I don't think I've run since high school. But my roommate goes, so i went with her. We cut through a cemetary, into these woods behind the baseball field. We're leaping over tree roots, squeezing down narrow paths, pushing through foliage. I feel all tough...until a man comes barreling down the slope...with his two dogs...running barefoot. I'm still a wuss. But i'm a wuss having fun, so it's good enough for now.

been a pretty good eatin' weekend...

found compatriots re: dark chocolate. you know you're the real thing if you can't really eat milk chocolate when you have a chocolate craving. and you NEVER think about letting white chocolate pass your lips.

made s'mores...albeit w/o dark chocolate.

dined at a Thai restaurant dubbed, Loong Chat. not bad, though not as dirt cheap as SF can be. nothing compares. BUT i spotted a chinese restaurant, Five Spice Cafe, that says they do vegetarian dim sum. basically just vegetarian siu mai. Not a huge selection, but worth a look some day.

i dunno how fantastic the dining adventures'll be in VT, but that's the start. and this morning, i just ate a cheddar spinach scone at muddy waters cafe. for some reason, i felt the need for some sundried tomato to give it some PUNCH. it was alright.

i have an address...send me love, people

It's amazing...being able to watch my boys on TV so often.
although their dismal loss to the Rays on Monday was lamentable.
i consider it dismal b/c the Rays are at the bottom of their section.

but i have to say. i love it when Arroyo pitches. That straight leg pitching stance is just SO HOT.
and he's doing pretty good as a pitcher. 4.04 ERA.
