Grab Bag (AKA Irish Cream's ADHD is off the hook!)

Howdy folks! Guess what? Something miraculous has happened! Believe it or not, it has nothing to do with the fact that my homegirl, Ali, won the Biggest Loser last night (can I just send her a virtual high five, though?! I was ecstatic!) Ladies and gents . . . against all odds, I have accomplished something that many thought to be impossible. That's right. For the first time this Spring, I actually got my ass out of bed and ran before work!

I'll tell you what. Considering I got home from work at 11:00 last night (and then, of course, immediately watched my tivo'd 2-hour Biggest Loser Finale), it's truly nothing short of a miracle that I got up when the alarm went off this morning . . . or rather, that I got up after hitting snooze just twice. I had 3-miles on the schedule, and I finished with 3.01 miles at a 9:37/mile pace. Not too bad.

Of course, by 4:00 p.m., I was ready to take a nap . . . luckily, I realized that the Mister Softee truck was parked right outside my building. Co-worker and I ran downstairs and got ourselves each one of these delicious mother-effers:

Yummy. I also should mention that I had one of the most delicious pieces of fish ever tonight for dinner. Praise the baby Jesus that my firm lets us order off of Seamless Web if we have to work until 8:00 p.m. or later (this has sadly been a given ALL WEEK LONG). Anyway, I ordered from a place called Urban Lobster, and had this cod that was crusted with potato and chives. It was out of this world. As I was eating it, I began wondering what a cod even looks like? So I looked it up . . . this is what the dish I ate used to look like before it got all mashed up in my tummy:

Ha, that reminds me of a funny quote I saw today. "If God didn't want me to eat animals, He would not have made them out of meat." Hehe. Clever. I don't know who that quote should be attributed to (other than fellow carnivores who also swear by it), but I'm pretty sure we would be homies if we ever met.

Well, crap. I think I had more to say . . . but I'm getting too tired to type. So perhaps my ADHD won't be quite as out of control tonight as I'd originally thought ;) More updates to come tomorrow! Get excited, people!
