And we got FOURTH in the whole LEAGUE! An amazing final game for team Honey Boo Boo. We went 0 for 2, and scored a total of four points in our second game. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
I’m sad basketball season is over, but glad I have Wednesday nights free for the next couple months. I plan on dedicating this newfound free time to baking cookies, drinking hot chocolate, and conducting mass online shopping. Is anyone else excited for Christmas?! I have been listening to Mariah Carey’s Christmas album nonstop all week.
I didn’t post yesterday because absolutely nothing happened between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning. Oh wait, I take that back. Actually the most incredible competition ever occurred. Let the (boring) story begin!
So on Monday I saw this on my run: If you didn’t know, I’m in love with animal crackers (in addition to pho); especially the 365 Organic Animal Crackers, to be exact. Let’s just say it’s bad enough that Anthony bought me some as a birthday present. I saw an empty bag of them in the street and was heartbroken/completely inspired to go buy some myself.
So after work I went to Whole Foods to buy some, and then the worst thing happened: they were all out. So I made do by buying some 365 Teddy Grahams. Better something than nothing right?
THEN Tuesday night came and the news broke. Anthony had visited a different Whole Foods and guess what?
Now I have animal crackers out the wahzoo.We ate all of them at once and decided the 365 Organic Animal Crackers (not Animal Grahams) won, followed by the Grahams, and then followed by the Market Pantry crackers. And yes, completely coincidentally, that is also the order of fat grams per serving in these cookies, highest to lowest. Ha. (Plus a piece of chocolate in the middle, just to cleanse the palate between each tasting.)
If you actually bothered to read that entire story, send me your address and I will mail you a tub of animal crackers just for reading. But not the camels or elephants because those are my favorite.
In other news, I’ve ventured into the dark side of running. Last night I decided to be most efficient by running to and from my basketball game. Running downtown during rush hour can be very stop-go-stop-go. To combat this, I play a game called Pedestrian Sign Scramble. It goes like this: when you get a pedestrian go sign at a cross walk, you cross. When you don’t get a sign, turn right.
Sometimes you end up running in squares but I don’t mind. My game took me right by the White House. Looks like Obama is doing some yard work.Before I knew it, it was still dark, and 6 am. And Miriam was outside my doorstep! We did a hilly 4-5 miles around town.
I’ve added lots of artistic effects to this photo to distract you from our sweaty, sleepy smiles.
The best thing about super-early jogs? You feel like you get a full, secret day in while everyone else is sleeping.
Today’s a big, beautiful day. Gotta pack my bags for Charm City!
