I went to dinner with my father tonight. He eats weird food.

I've wasted my youth hanging out with dogs (that wear shirts) and I probably will until I die. You can read into this statement as much as you want.

I spent a long time in a car to see this big guy.

This is my "I just worked a 14 hour day face." Actually it was only like 12 or so when I took the picture...but the internet isn't ready for the full face.

I used to be a vegetarian. Now I eat bunny faces for an afternoon snack.

I had a hard run tonight so I'm having a nice hot beer with a bottle of bath. I'm going to drown these shin splins one way or another.

Also note, my bottle tonight has a bear with moose antlers on the label. This 100% motivated the selection process to purchase this beer. I wish it was a real animal so I could have one for a pet. And take baths with it.

Nicole is the only person in the whole world that gets my weird jokes about a small dead fly named Oocha...and even she doesn't think they're funny.

Large scale murals about food are specifically applicable to my interests.

I don't even smoke cigarettes, so I'm just eating bunny and that's the extent of my observance of this "holiday."

So I don't normally go to drug stores (unless I'm taking film to be developed) because things like this tend to happen. All of their Easter candy is 75% off, so I took it upon myself to purchase the largest chocolate bunny in the store. He was a steal at 57¢. I brought him back to my office so my little toy animal collection could worship him like a giant bunny deity.

P.s. if you ever want me to talk your ear off for multiple hours at a time, ask me about my theory regarding existence of giant animals before humans ruined the earth.

We went out for a trail run and Nicole ended up grocery shopping.

Every morning when the alarm on my phone goes off to wake me up, "Get Money" is the first thing I see. I thought that it would be a good subconscious, daily motivater to make myself rich. It hasn't worked.

I'm probably jinxing it by even posting here about it, but I would like to be on the other side of this monitor at some point before I die.

I encountered this at work today. I have no idea what this is about, but I fully support whatever it is.

So today is the one year anniversary of Nicole and I running with Nike+. Ironically, it fell right in the middle of my scheduled rest week off. So while Nicole got out, I stayed home and decided to "repair" the pieces of rubber falling off of my camera. I'm still a bit traumatized to go into full detail, but let's just say I'm probably not responsible enough to to use Super Glue. Long story short, I almost broke my camera tonight, but I managed to fix it with a screwdriver and gaffers tape. The end.

There are many things in life that I disapprove of. This is pretty high up on the list.

Did you read the story from 4-2-12? Well I went to a different location for lunch today. It was calm, there were no screaming children, and I won a prize from the claw machine.* Dreams do come true.

*Disregard the fact that I played a "play-til-you-win-(loser)" claw machine and that it took more than a handfull of attempts.

This sad melty bunny would like to remind you of all the poor chocolate bunnies who will lose their lives today...and end up in my belly.

It's pretty amazing to me that in the past year of running, I've taken around six minutes off of my first 5k time. If this rate of improvement continues, I should be a about a minute over the world record by this time next year. Also quite notable, Nicole placed and won a prize in her first race in her new age group...even after her stress fracture.

I like that runners have cute names like "carbing up" for what normal people would call "eating like a fat cow." And that if you call it by that name instead, it makes doing it not only ok, but an important part of "training."

I like playing with Sienna because she gets really excited about doing weird stuff.

This weekend Nicole and I went to eat at a restaurant that had a mini-arcade next to the dining area. Normally this would be a good thing since I like that kind of stuff. Normally. There's nothing normal about a mob of screaming children running around like howler monkeys while you're trying to eat breakfast. If I wanted that, I would have went to Chucke E. Cheese (actually that would probably be pretty fun). However, as we were eating, Nicole noticed that one of the urchins actually won a prize from a dinosaur claw machine. No one ever wins anything from claw machines. Too busy screaming to notice that he actually won, we quietly ate our meal while watching to see if the little monster or any of his cohorts checked the prize door. They never did. I probably could have retrieved the prize and made the poor child's day, and I definitely would have if he were politely sitting on his hands in the corner with his mouth closed. But he had long before reached a decibel level where he no longer deserved such an awesome prize. We deserved such an awesome prize for putting up with his shrieking. So yeah, we didn't technically steal from a little kid, but this suction cup ball has been stuck to my bedroom mirror for the past three days. I'm not sorry.

I'm scared of a lot of things, but not a lot of things scare me more than ticks. Whatever, we went nature adventuring with Nicole's family in the woods to look for mushrooms. We found this fancy bee with a long nose, mayapples and things you shouldn't eat. As a bit of a PSA, for some reason people think that this would be a good mushroom to eat. It's not. Its name is Verpa Bohemica and you can tell it's not a good mushroom because it has weird white stuff inside its stem if you cut it open. I wish I could feed poisonous mushrooms to all the ticks in the world so they get sick and die. Ticks suck.
