#681: Fall while running

Considering I am the klutziest (not a word; don’t care) person I know, I’m surprised this hasn’t happened sooner. In fact, to have it happen on what my running app tells me was my 100th run since I decided to run a marathon seems almost fitting in some way.

The good news:

#680: Have a 5 cent cocktail

They say every cloud has a silver lining.  I’d like the saying better if it were, “Every cloud has a burger lining.” Last night, it was.

The Owl’s Brew cocktail promotion at BFB where you get a token for a nickel that gets you a drink was a promising premise.  In practice, not so much. Read the rest of this entry »

#676: Go to Lovecraft

Scary: In a city of more than 8 million people, you run into the on-again-off-again ex-girlfriend of the roommate of the last person you dated in a neighborhood nowhere near yours.

Scarier: While this is happening, on the same block, the friend you just left runs into a girl he visits in the middle of the night when they’re both lonely, who lives nowhere near that neighborhood.
