Free Association Thursday

Imagine the above image was one of those Yahoo emoticons -- you know, the one that is looking skeptically, with its chin in its hand, eyebrows arching in question mode?
That's how I feel right now.
Welcome to Free Association Thursday.
Chick Happy Hour. I went tonight, seeing that I'm recently single (really about a month). I went with Kelly and Michele. I've known Michele almost 20 years or so. ... It is a non-organized group of single gay women and some couples who are either trying to set their friends up (enter Kelly and Michele) or reconnecting with old friends or making new ones. I met some couples. We bonded over marathoning. All was good, I didn't meet anyone. Thankyouverymuch.
Vodka. Skyy. It's really the only one to drink if you know you are having several cocktails. I totally believe in the special distillation and how it really doesn't give me a headache. OK. I really only had four drinks, so I'm OK. Seriously.
Dykes vs. Femmes. No question or contest. Sporty femme. I love being a woman. Which is why I love women!
Getting physical. (Again, I didn't meet anyone tonight...I am glad. Not ready yet). I miss being sore, so I'm ready to start running again. Just two more days...
Roller derby. I am seriously thinking of changing my training to consist mostly of roller skating. I am going online to find some good pads, so I can actually try out at the end of the year. Big maybe.
Want a piece of me?! I really feel like I need to have the shit beat out of me right now, in some way. I almost feel like I need to be sore, like I-just-ran-20-miles-sore. Could it be thoughts of penance? God. I just typed penance.

QoD: I've been out for more than 20 years ... Who do you know that has just come out? Are you there for them?! You better be.

wednesday night

It was hump day, in every sense of the word.
Do you ever really think about the fourth day of the week (assuming Sunday is your first day)?
It was good.
Tuesday, a 'tag' sort of reawakened something in me. See this...
I spoke to Margarita and Marisa today.
But I spent this evening, drinking wine and having snacks, with Kevin.
We talked about running, our first marathons, how our bodies feel when we train, when we reach the runner's high.
It was a great evening at Zambrano's in downtown Fort Worth. He drank his cabernets, I drank the pinot noir.

P.S. I am going to run the San Antonio Rock 'N Roll Marathon on Nov. 16. Come do this full with me, someone?

QoD: Holy s@#t, do I really want to do another marathon??

Six word memoir

OK. I was tagged by MotownRunnerGirl, via Blyfinn's blog, to play the "six word memoir" game. Here are the rules:

1) Write your own six word memoir
2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you want
3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere
4) Tag at least five more blogs with links
5) Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

"Life's short. Live in the moment!"

Now, I'm tagging Ty, Christy, Kevin, Anyone else who stops by and feels like posting their six word memoir/motto, please do so.

QoD: (Remember this?) Do you live in the moment?
