Been awhile.

It's been a while since I've rambled. It's been pretty somber around these parts. WTF?

But I tell you what: the best way to get hits on a blog is to get dumped. Seriously. Over 1,000 hits for, like, three days in a row. People are absurdly fascinated with my misery.

Aw, makes me feel all fuzzy inside.

So, I finished "The Host." Meh. It took me awhile to decide its rating, which ended up two stars. I thought it was a bizarre story. The goody-two-shoes "souls" creeped me out. I'll stick with vampires, thanks. But, with that said, it wasn't a bad book. Just... odd.

And here's an embarrassing story from tonight:

I sashayed (because I sashay now) up to my two-person table tonight at work and greeted with a friendly, "Hey ladies! How are you tonight?"

And then I realized it was a man at the table.

To my credit, he had long hair and bad fashion, so from the back I mistook him for a woman circa 1978. Needless to say, it was awkward. He was a sport about it, though. Told me it's even more awkward when that happens to him at the urinal. I say cut your hair.

In other news, I f-i-n-a-l-l-y watched the season premier of "LOST". About freaking time. Here are my thoughts:

Uh, what?

Could this shit get any more confusing. Now we're time traveling and flashing back and flashing forward and man, I missed me some Sawyer. Hello, lover. I'm about to plop my ass in front of and watch this week's episode. Then on to the latest episode of "24".

Speaking of getting out of the loop, my marathon training is also about to dump me. It's been a week since I've gotten off my moping, wasting-away ass and ran. I told myself I needed a mental health week, but if I keep this up any longer I'm going to need to start from scratch and run a 5K instead.

I vow to start (again) tomorrow. Hold me accountable.

Tomorrow's destined to be a fabulous day, too. Mom and dad are heading up to treat me to a pre-birthday birthday day. (Huh?) Lunch, car maintenance and TELEVISION. They're buying me the cable converter box for my TV so I can hook up some rabbit ears and get me some network channels.


I'll be living like a queen in no time.
