They Bullied Me!

...into a "new and improved" blogger. I couldn't do anything unless I accepted! The Brooklyn chick inside me wants to beat the crap out of them for not giving me a choice, but I will behave like the serene, mature woman I have become (vomit now) and take it in stride (damn mf'ers!).

ok....got that off my chest......

I've been out of it as far as running goes the past week and a half. Not sure what was up...combination of the cleansing diet tiring me out, working overtime at new job, new hours to deal with....blah, blah, blah. Doesn't bother me much, I will be back tomorrow. Life sometimes throws ya curves and ya gotta deal with it. (still dreaming of my cabin in the woods with no stress).

I have been without my garmin for a few months now. Lost the base it sits in to recharge it, along with the cable. Lost the cable (rather, the dog my daughter rescued chewed it up) for my digital camera......then discovered the camera cable and the garmin cable were the same. I asked on the ultra list about a new charger and someone recommended a site that had it (garmin was out of it!), so I ordered it and received it Saturday! I'm back in business!!

Unfortunately, I can't post ya any new pics cuz, being the wonderful girlfriend I am, I encouraged Haight to go down to Key West with his pals this weekend (was supposed to be a wedding for one of them but that was cancelled--they still went down to party anyways!) and he, of course, took the camera. So you'll all have to be patient!

In the meantime, I've been catching up on reading.....the paperback for "The Year of Magical Thinking" by Joan Dideon just came out and I snatched it up. Already started it and am enthralled! Finished my easy read--I'm an addicted fan of Sue Grafton, the "alphabet mystery writer", her latest being "S is for Silence". I think I most love her protagonist, a female P.I. who I dream of being in one of my many fantasies.

I also cut my hair.....couldn't make it to the required 9 inches they want to have it donated. Cut off 6 inches---word in the salon was "adorable".....how old does one have to be before she becomes "sexy" not "cute"!!????? Guess in my next life!

So new haircut, nails manicured for work, next up.......new glasses!! Stay tuned!!

I am sure it is sexy. You will take pictures when Haight is back right?

I've missed you! I bet the hair is sexy as hell ;) mine is short now too, and i also want new frames... always tweaking ourselves aren't we? :)

We have missed you, Lora. Can not wait to see the picture of your new do. You are very sweet to allow Haight to take the camera to Key West. I know the frustration with the cable chewing thing. My cats are not that much better. **sigh**

I can already see the improvements in your blogging abilities and maturity. I hope this continues...we'll all be watching, you know. ;-)

Who bullied you, anyway?

I've actually had VERY SENSITIVE people e-mail me about leaving a link to someone's blog on my blog. They rummaged through the other person's blog and found something objectionable buried 30-posts deep, and then took it out on me for having a f'ing link to their blog. Geese!

I know what you mean about being bullied, nothing would work unless you changed over.
Looking forward to the pics.

Welcome back. "The Year of Magical Thinking" was so gripping with its dry, wry, matter-of-fact tone. When you get the camera back, we'll be ready for your new look :).

E-Speed said...

ah the curse of the "cute." I know it all too well!

I am waiting to cut mine to donate. Unfortunately my hair grows slower than a snail moves so it will be quite awhile!

Travis said...

Just don't cut it as short as mine (or Brittney Spears since that seems to be all that is on the news) And in response to my attire at the race... My hat had green and red stipes in it, it really pulled the outfit together :)

Deb said...

I'm likin that Brooklyn chick! I'm sure the hair is fabulous! (not 'cute'). ;)

Steve said...

When's your next race?

Ryan said...

“Those bastards”

Looking forward to seeing the new an improved LoraRuns...

Have a nice weekend = )

Mike said...

Lora- I have a hard time believing anyone can bully you!;-) Those darn blogger mf'ers hiding behind the security of world wide web!

Hope all is well and where are the pics of the new do!?

Black Knight said...

Ahaha the same happened to me: ...into a "new and improved" blogger. I couldn't do anything unless I accepted.
When will you show to your subjects your new look?

"Cute" IS sexy, in a kittenish cuddly way. :-)

I gave about 11 inches of my hair to Locks of Love last summer. They were asking for 10, but I wanted to shorter. Now I want to keep my hair shorter (FOREVER, the long look was not flattering anymore. Guess I'm now too old to be "cute"), but I'd kind of like to donate hair again. But that means it would have to get long enough to go short. Why is life so complex? lol

And they FORCED me to do new improved Blogger. I DID NOT WANT TO SWITCH. I agree - the New Yawker in me wants to go knock 'em inta next week, ya know?
