Thursday Thoughts: A Bullet List of Excitement

I'm the type of "blogger" who randomly expounds upon topics that pop into my head at any given moment.  I've put "blogger" in quotes much like I used to put running in quotes.  This is because I believe that doing something periodically does not make you a person who does that thing.  For example, sometimes I paint; I am NOT a painter.  Anyway.  Lately I've been lacking when it comes to discussion topics.  Long gone are the days of dating blogs, the Bachelor live-blogs (you're welcome, J) and rumination on defining myself.  I'm finding myself stuck, for lack of a better term and mostly because I just mentioned painting, with an empty canvas.  I decided instead to list the things that are coming up shortly for which I am excited.

  • I'm thisclose to running 3 miles.  This WILL happen Monday.  I would do it this weekend, but I am busy.  See next bullet point for that reason.
  • I'm going camping!  Yes, reader, you read that correctly.  I am going camping.  I shall be leaving my curling iron and shiny, new jeans* at home (as well as Gizmo - with my neighbor) to go on a 2 day, 1 night excursion into the woods.
  • I go "home" for Thanksgivukkah in 6 days!  I may live-blog that trip like I did last year.  It does make the airport and flying experience more fun...
  • Thanksgivukkah in general.  This is exciting!  My favorite secular holiday and my least favorite religious holiday have smushed themselves into one exciting weekend.  Yay for a reason to not dislike Hanukkah this year!!
  • Speaking of which, I made [almost] all of my gifts for Thanksgivukkah and I'm tentatively excited - and a little nervous that they won't be received with very high regard - to have the recipients unwrap their packages.
  • Before 30 Bucket List Item #1 - Running (no quotes) a 5k.  December 14th is the day.  I feel confident I will be able to run the entire thing.  I have been training religiously.  Even in the 94% humidity of Florida "fall" weather.

That's basically all I've got going on right about now.  What about you, reader?  What things are coming up for which you are excited?


* my jeans aren't actually shiny.  They are normal denim material.

**FUN GRAMMAR GAME: What rule about bullets did I consciously break on every bullet point above?


  1. Yay! I got a shout out! I too and excited for this 5k that you speak of and will make every attempt to keep of with you the entire way.

    1. I'm excited you're excited. It's going to be uber fun. I don't need to be fast, I just want to do it! :) RUNNING...booooo lol
