to you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high*

IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN.



Time to break out the Price jersey, and my lucky Habs pom pom socks. Time to cheer and keep hope alive that it might just be like 93 and the cup will go home to Montreal (not - likely.) But hey - at least the Leafs aren't in it!

It's also that time - when I get frantic texts from other countries, where my dad is vacationing needing to know what the score of games are.

I LOVE PLAYOFF SEASON!

(*And yes, that is a quote from Flanders Fields. Yes. It is painted on the walls of the Habs dressing room.)

Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear.

We mustn't dwell... no, not today. We CAN'T. Not on Rex Manning day!



For reals. Guys it is Rex Manning Day. Also? I had no idea he was that guy (whoooosseee that guuuuyyyyyy?) in Grease 2.

Anyways regrets, I have a few (wow this is turning into a musical post :P) mostly I took some Benadryl last night to combat some congestion. I was also in pain yesterday, due to some running related injuires, and I know the benadryl would knock me out and help me sleep. I'm still a little ... fuzzy today. but I feel less congested and my ankle doesn't hurt so - yay!

yup

It's a little unfair that I love horror movies so much oh my gosh an I'm also scared of my own shadow. It's been a long (creepy) weekend.

It's also been a headachey weekend. All the RP things - all of them! - as I slowly pick at things.

(Today's headache faded by the afternoon, so I was able to get a nice long run in, but now my body is like 'hey maybe you should have worked up to that run. So now your legs are going to hurt. At least it's not my head!)

FYI

EPIC STORM HAPPENING.

Whiteout conditions and very high winds. Storm surges expected (doesn't impact me, I live inland) I have power, but the power outages are starting in the areas the storm hit first. I'm home from work (my office didn't even open today ... now the buses are pulled and Halifax has shut down.) and picking slowly at things.

*fingers crossed* I get to keep power all day. Also fingers crossed I don't blow away when I take the dog out again later today :P

so long (last week)

SO LONG LAST WEEK ~ and good riddance. Good bye to you and hellooooo new week. Please be being better.

I can't really pinpoint what made last week in general a big pile of 'Do Not Want' but yeah. Done with that. Onto this week. (Which will have it's own challenges but eh, I will not WebMD any kind of symptoms I have this week and not freak myself out, I will not skip meals because I get a little unhinged when I get really hungry, and I will be smarter about not overdoing the exercising.)

fire in the sky

I dragged myself to 10' PM last night then gave up the ghost and went to bed. Only to wake up at 2:00 AM wide awake. Then I went back to sleep around 4 - which meant I missed the fireball in the sky again.

What's that you say? Oh, well let me quote CBC here: For the second day in a row, a large fireball has been seen in the sky over Nova Scotia.

CBC News reporter Phonse Jessome saw the colourful fireball in the northwestern sky above Fall River, 25 km north of Halifax, at 5:17 a.m. AT Wednesday.


I should have stayed up! (Only not, I really needed sleep.)

Honestly my favorite response was to the bright light on Tuesday morning, Haligonia (local news site) reported: "How to tell Maritimers are totally done with Winter: Hundreds report a strange "bright light" in the sky to RCMP and local media this morning." (it was sunny yesterday). And then one of the comments to the post was: "The RCMP have confiscated it and reclassified it a a danger to the public. They will be keeping the ball of light for them self."

i want a re-do

I have given up potato chips for Lent. I miss them already.

I'm also running on my lunch breaks at work now (or trying to - a few times a week) as I try and reach my goal of running 10K - as I'd like to reach that before I go and run in the Bluenose 10K in May.

In short: no chips + increased running + IT BEING REALLY STUPIDLY COLD = a kind of cranky Kelly. The running should hopefully help me level off the EPIC CRANKY as when I was running before it put my stress level to almost zero, so here's hoping. I've had stress dreams all week and I'd like that to stop.

YAYAY ALL THE NOTFIS.

BOOOO - I forgot that I had signed up for a lunch and learn tomorrow (it's a thing we do at work) about resume and cover letter writing and I have to do up a cover letter and update my resume today.

So. The inbox disaster will have to wait until that gets done. And I am doing the running club at this lunch so I can't do tags then. In short: tags are coming guys, I GOT YOUR TAGS, I just have to get to them.

EDIT: I hate cover letters. I hate them. Haaattteeeee them.

(I'm not even applying for a new job, I'm just trying to brush up my resume and cover letter skillz.)

Books - February 2014 Round up and looking ahead to March

yes she's talking about the weather again

I continue to wage a war of words with the weather, as in I continue to curse and swear as I try and navigate the front stairs of my building, and curse and swear as I go to work and have to put on what feels like a hundred layers of clothing. I dislike winter. This winter is being exceptionally winter-y.

And ... more snow. MORE SNOW, Wednesday, and Thursday and possibly on the weekend. Whatever winter. You win this round, wake me when it's spring.

I'm pretty sure I've linked to these before but --- these are my favorite valentines. I will never, ever not think 'Leon Trotsky thinks your a hotsky' is not hysterical. (But also wrong. So wrong.)

And to all my friends ... )

I have a lot of Olympics feelings

HAHAHA, oh CBC this intro to the Russia vs Slovenia hockey game is hysterically over dramatic. I look forward to Saturday's Russia vs USA game, I suspect the drama in the opening will go all the way to 11. I really love that Slovenia has neon green in their jerseys.

Crazy day was crazy yesterday. But mostly in a good way!

Forecast for rest of the week is - lots o stuff going on. I have to make cupcakes tonight for a work related baby shower, I have a shopping expedition on for Friday night, Saturday is going to be a whirlwind of stuff (farmers market, visiting my grandma, going to my parents for supper and maybe Monuments Men.) and Sunday - ohhh Sunday. Sunday I'm going to attempt to make a cake (not from a mix ...) and also attempt to make sweet potato quinoa patties.

So RP is happening! Just probably not on Saturday so much (so business as normal for me).

GOALS FOR TODAY (and lets be honest - tomorrow as well)

Life Blogging

I went running yesterday and - ow. OW. First run in 2014 and umm - first run in a while. A long while. I did 3.5k and then my body was like 'STOP IT, STOP IT NOW'. Today my body is all 'hahahah - you will PAY.'

Am hoping to be able to get out on Tuesday night (since today ... is not an option) since Wednesday is ... wait for it .... going to be stormy! It must be a Wednesday in Nova Scotia! To quote one of the local news outlets:

In a season that has so far seen record-high temperatures and record snowfall amounts, Environment Canada is predicting yet another Wednesday winter storm for Halifax.

This would be the third Wednesday storm in row.

“When it’s winter in Nova Scotia you can expect just about anything,” said Tracey Talbot, a meteorologist with Environment Canada.


Hopefully the snow will clear up by the weekend / the sidewalks will be clear so I can get a run in on Saturday or Sunday. The Bluenose 10K is creeping ever closer ...
