Running a Soggy but Exhilarating Brooklyn Half Marathon!

It’s been a week later now, yet I still feel waterlogged.

Running half marathons was something I swore I would never do. I still have this love/hate thing going on with running. I mean, I do love the feeling of running outside over a boring treadmill inside, but at times I would rather be eating Fritos and pizza on the couch. I know how that would turn out though, as I would resemble Jabba the Hut on his worst day. Oh, that reminds me, I must go see the new Solo Star Wars flick as it looks pretty decent. As long as the dude playing Solo doesn’t turn out to be another Hayden Christensen/Darth Vader which was god-awful at best.

First up though is Deadpool! Ryan Reynolds has totally redeemed himself from that cringe-inducing neon suit as Green Lantern.  He resembled a glow in the dark apple Jolly Rancher with a great coif. Swoon…. Continue reading Running a Soggy but Exhilarating Brooklyn Half Marathon!

Heading into 2016 at Ludicrous Speed! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all! It’s been one a heck of a ride in 2015 hasn’t it?

Well, here we are fresh into the New Year and with 2015 in the rear view mirror I am looking forward to see what awaits me in the next twelve months. This past year has been one of many ups and down in my life. The passing of loved ones, completing another mudder race for charity, many food and drinking adventures with friends, travel abroad, work stress along with work success, attending concerts of my fav bands while seeing some play their last shows, Broadway events, friends getting married, along with many laughs, tears, trials and tribulations along the way. As always, my rock along the way keeping me honest, and on the straight and narrow has been my gal Stacey. Sometimes I wonder why she still sticks with me as I must be a lot to handle, but for some reason she puts up with my stubbornness and shenanigans. Guess she loves me and my crazy ways. Here’s to more fun in 2016!

Eat more salads. Yeah, I know it’s pretty basic and kind of cliché when Jan 1 comes around to start a diet but I really need to cut back on the meat and crappy food eating. Gotta get those greens in even if it means sacrificing my love of greasy crispy delicious bacon. Sigh.

Jump out of a plane, climb a volcano, surf in shark infested waters, complete the NYC Marathon, run with the bulls, kayak over a waterfall, have an extreme enema, find Waldo. Screw it. I’ll just have some deep-fried Oreos and a nap.

Stop fretting over the little things. As long as I remember that we are all surrounded by assholes it will be ok. Continue reading Heading into 2016 at Ludicrous Speed! Happy New Year!

If the NYC Mayoral Candidates were Star Wars characters…..

corny-funny

In a city a long time ago, in an election far, far away…..

It was a period of political war.

Evil candidates from all walks of life, striking from hidden bases, ethnic backgrounds, sexual likes, and levels of wealth, have won their first victory against the fair citizens of NYC.

During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret votes and endorcements of the Mayor’s office ultimate weapon against large sugary sodas, the BLOOMBERG STAR, an armored municipal building with enough power to destroy the entire city. The Naked Cowboy. Or, gasp, New Jersey!

Pursued by the candidates’ evil agents, the citizens race to the election booths this week, hoping to place their votes that will elect the right person who can save us all, and restore freedom to our great city…..  Continue reading If the NYC Mayoral Candidates were Star Wars characters…..

Is it just me?

I don’t know about any of you but I’m just not ready to see darkness starting at 5pm! It feels like I’m just getting my day started and all of a sudden it’s night time. Daylight savings was invented to play with people like me. First of all, my morning started out with a lack of necessary caffeine as I stupidly went to the voting booths to do my patriotic duty without a cup o’ joe and got trapped there for almost two hours! Everyone was cranky to begin with. Double ugh!
