Too Tired for a Title

1. Today is my little sister’s 26th birthday. Happy Birthday Sari! And to make all things about me, I now have to officially quit telling people I am 25. Her birthdays are always so hard on me.

She never does what I tell her to do. Stubborn jerk.

2. Twilight was still awful, but not nearly as terrible as I expected. It was far more enjoyable than the previous four movies because there was significantly less Kristen Stewart exercising her wide range of emotions.

Also, the ending totally got me. I don’t really remember the books because it’s been fourish years since I read them (I know, the shame. But, when I commit to a series I will be damned if I don’t finish it regardless of my interest in it.), but I was pretty sure that was not how they ended. That crappy CGI baby was the creepiest thing ever. I just don’t understand why that choice was made.

3. Some of y’all were super rude about Tom Selleck yesterday. We don’t appreciate it.

4. I ran last night for the first time in a week. That was special. The humidity and warm temperatures did not help. Thankfully, a cool front is blowing in tonight, so I’m looking forward to a better experience tomorrow.  I took home all of my running stuff and fully intended to get some running in. I just don’t even know where the time went. We were busy all day every day, my mom just loves to keep the agenda packed when we are home. I also can’t run in the early morning or at dusk because it is deer season and I sure don’t want the Dick Cheney treatment.  So that just did not even happen. Luckily, I didn’t eat 75,000 calories. Yep, good thing that didn’t happen.

5. I ate 75,000 calories. Guess what? That’s not a good idea. I have felt like I was on the verge of death since Thanksgiving. And I ate pie and cookies. I loved them. They were super delicious. In my defense, the cookies were peanut butter with Hershey Kisses gently nestled into their soft and chewy center. Who could say no to that?? No one. And if you say you could, then you are an alien or a liar.

I also learned a really fun lesson that when you eat sugar after a couple of weeks off of it, it hurts you. It hurts you bad. I was lethargic, my stomach hurt, and I had a raging headache. Obviously, that will not be a hard enough lesson to keep me away from sugar long-term, but it does re-enforce that I should continue eating less. So I will continue with my no sugar plan for the next two weeks and see how it goes. In the meantime, I will eat all the vegetables and buckets of oatmeal in an effort to feel human again.

6. I am really really pissed that this Sunday is the mid-season finale for The Walking Dead. OUTRAGED. Part of me doesn’t even want to watch because I know it will be the same brand of breathless cliffhanger like the barn zombies last season. My heart can’t handle it. Okay, I’m totally going to watch it because I have no self-control, but I will be outraged for the entire length of the show and for the next few months. Take that AMC.

Also, how badass was Glenn?


And the scene between Maggie and the Governor was the most terrifying and stressful scene I’ve ever experienced on this show. I thought I was going to throw up the entire time. Andrea sure knows how to pick them.

Let’s leave on a positive note with Daryl’s raging biceps:

  1. I love that Liz Lemon gif. Fits every occasion. Btw – it definitely took me three tries to spell occasion. Sometimes I wonder how I’m a college graduate.

      Well, they don’t teach spelling in college, so console yourself with that.Anything that has or could have two sets of double letters (i.e. occasion, disappoint, embarrassed…) gives me trouble. I think spelling tests should at least last through high school.

  2. Michelle

    Ugh. #5 is me right now. My body is all “Give me vegetables!” and my mind is all “SUUUUGGGARRRRR” it’s gross.

    I don’t watch the walking dead but if Darryl is the man in the back with the crossbow and he is a regular I may just have too!

    Do you get BBC America? Over the weekend I became obsessed with The Hour. It’s about an English news show in the 50s. I think you might dig it!

    • Reese's Runner

      Daryl is the man with the crossbow and he is a main character. Welcome to the fan club. And I will check that out, it sounds right up my alley!

  3. Just wait til your sister gets married and has a kid, then you’ll feel old regardless :/

    Also, I totally do not get these mid-season ending things. Have they always done that or is this some recent (past 5 years-ish) ploy on our emotions? I don’t remember this going on when I watched Buffy back in the day.

    • Reese's Runner

      I feel like it’s new too. I never really noticed it until Walking Dead, but it really makes me mad.

      • Rachael

        I think the mid-season ending is because show seasons used to just run for half the year, so it would be a season finale. Now that shows span their seasons out the entire year, the mid-season finale is to make you come back after the long hiatus.

  4. Melissa

    Wait! There is a mid season finale for walking dead!? That’s devastating.

    Here are my walking dead wonderings: why is Herschel’s hair in a low pony, but carol is still rocking the pixie cut? And did you know that Rick, maggie, and the governor all have accents that aren’t American? I was watching the making of each episode (included in my iTunes season pass!) and was blown away when I heard them talk.

    • Reese's Runner

      That always blows my mind. And their accents are so good! They aren’t so terribly overly Southern and exaggerated. I’ve wondered that too about Carol’s hair. I mean it does look choppy, so maybe they are trimming it. And maybe Hershel is just trying to look more badass? I wondered why T-Dog never seemed to lose weight. They are basically starving, always on the move, always short on food, and yet he was still all beefy? HOW IS THAT! Maybe he bad a crappy metabolism?

      • Melissa

        That’s how I felt about Hurley on lost….I was like, how are the going to explain that he’s still tubby? They were thinkers though…he had a private food stash.

        • Reese's Runner

          And that is why Hurley will always remain the man of my dreams. Sweet, funny, and a food stash? CALL ME HURLEY. We can fix that hair later.

    • Rachael

      Homeland is like that too! It seems like every episode I google a character to see what else the actor is in and find out they’re British. Quinn, Brody, Estes, etc. are all Brits!

  5. Ha! Love the tag…I can relate to feeling chunky post-Thanksiving bliss. And Tom Seleck is still the man in my book…hello “3 Men & a Lady”!!! Yea buddy ;)

  6. Twilight is the ONLY series I have ever given up on. And I have read some spectacularly terrible fantasy and sci-fi. I made it through the first 2 books thinking that I could power through to see what the hype was about. However, that was all the Bella and Edward I could handle. Towards the end of New Moon I was getting so frustrated I would have to take breaks.

  7. andrea

    I can’t sop reading the terrible fifty shades series even though i hate it i have to finish it. I’m on to the third dreadful book now.

    • Reese's Runner

      I’m with you there. I read all three too. I kept hoping there would be some brilliant finish that made it all worth it.

  8. Katie

    I didn’t think I ate too terribly over the four-day holiday weekend, but my body disagrees. I felt awful by Sunday night and still trying to go back to normal. Damn carbs.

  9. Dana

    I would never ever make it in Texas. In Long Island, the only seasons we know about are winter, spring, summer, and fall.

  10. Looking at Daryl made me feel better. He’s really turning out to be the hero here!
    And that whole scene with Maggie/Governor, I was thinking, “I hate Andrea, Andrea is so stupid, I really hate her.”

  11. Lauren

    I agree with everything you said about Twilight! I flipped out at yelled “That didn’t happen in the book!” even thought I wasn’t exactly sure but I figured I would have remembered if it did. It seemed like kind of a cop out. Like in 3rd grade when you have to write a 1 page story and at the end of the page you just write “Then I woke up safe in my bed at home.” Lame. I couldn’t even look at that weird baby, so creepy. Glad we see eye to eye on these matters. Lastly, Aro’s laugh was so scary, I still get chills just thinking about it.

    • Reese's Runner

      Agreed on all of that!!! Oh well, it did get me good though. And Aro is a super creepy. I can’t believe in real life he is banging Rachel McAdams. Does not compute.

      • They’re banging? I had no idea. She’s my girl crush. I’m so confused now.

        • Reese's Runner

          Yes it’s true. For a couple of years I think. The math on that equation is just off. Ryan Gosling to Aro? Maybe she likes moody? And his ex-wife is Kate Beckinsale. He must be packing or super smart and funny.

    • Melissa

      Is the twilight ending change worse than what the movie guys did to “my sisters keeper?”. Those movie writers DESTROYED that book in so many, many ways.

  12. Neha

    Andrea has totally replaced Lori as my new “I wish she would get her face eaten off” character on the show. Seriously…. the governor is obviously some demented sociopath annnnnnd she’s doing him. Also did you notice that she was wearing a lace thong??? I was like, where the f did she get that thing and secondly, how is that practical for stabbing zombies in the eye?

  13. Yea I put on a few pounds too. It happens.

    Has the deer population exploded in Texas? it sure has here. Challenge those hunters and go run anyway.

  14. Cheryl

    Glenn was soooo bad ass! That was some awesome biter wrasslin’! Funny, I made the comment to my husband about how Rick’s beard never seems to grow any longer. Kind of like Carol’s pixie cut. Can someone tell me why Andrea is sporting a purse??? She showed up with nothing and now she’s carrying a bag like she’s going shopping in crazy town? I think Glenn needs to kill her and Merle. Please.

    • Reese's Runner

      Hahahah I never thought about Andrea’s purse! You are so right! What the hell is she toting around!!! Hopefully, it’s birth control. And good point about Rick’s beard, it’s always so perfectly scruffy. Not too long, but enough to make him look rugged lumberjack-ish.

  15. Kristie

    THE CGI BABY!!! Every time I tell someone about it they think I’m crazy. Srsly, that baby was creepy!

  16. Denny

    I love Tom. Those other people are crazy. You are awesome.
