Quick Firefly observations....

....and I will make a very quick....short and sweet.
  1. Mondays SUCK (even more so on less than 5 1/2 hours sleep!)
  2. Mid-week Holidays SUCK. Who the FUCK thought about putting a HUGE drinking, partying holiday on a WEDNESDAY! To make matters worse, I HAVE to work on that day while someone else (and the rest of the city) gets to sleep in. Pooh! (But being paid DOUBLE time for the holiday is not so bad!)
  3. Chicago drivers have NO respect for poor innocent pedestrians like ME! I swear that I have literately dodge cars when I have the LEGAL RIGHT to cross the street to get to where I want to go. I just marked #3 on the close call list since I have moved here...and at 5:35 AM too. I swear that they must have SO little patience to wait an extra minute to allow someone to move from place to another. Or they have very mean game at it too. UGH! (Does ANYONE notice this besides me?!)
  4. This Firefly needs more than 5 1/2 hours to function. (That's a given!)
  5. This Firefly makes a great triple berry pie! (Something very proud of!)
  6. The moon this weekend looked SO HUGE....and yellow too!
  7. PB&J's at the ultimate pre-run or pre-workout food. Jelly for sugar, which brings energy to run. Peanut Butter for protein, and the bread to protect someone like this Firefly from having a bad acid-reflux episode while exercising.
End of observations!

Yes, I agree that mid-week holidays are weird. Might as well get the rest of the week off and make it a 5-day weekend!

I agree with your #7 as well. One of my fav post-run snacks!

I'm so with you on the holiday being mid-week. It's crazy. I, too, will be bringing home the bling, though, as it's double time for me as well. Gotta love the benjamins. :)

Sorry about you living in a virtual Frogger game. That sucks.

You must share your tri-berry pie recipe. Mine always come out tasting too tart.

I remember dodging cars when I was last in Chicago -- and using a cane. Have they no respect for the crippled?!

You got spoiled by the "Minnesota nice" drivers back home.

I just enjoyed two pieces of your pie.

I didn't know they were so aggressive in Chicago!!! I thought it being the "midwest," and all that they'd be more slower paced. Ugh. Glad you're ok!

WTG on the pie, yum. Midweek holiday, weird, I agree. And I, too, ADORE PBJ pre/post run, yum.

Hope all is better now, Firefly!

yeah, those mid-week holidays do suck. I had too many beers that night and not enough sleep so Thursday I can relate to your Monday's and little sleep suck!

Did you know that the moon on the 30th was a blue moon? That's why it was so big!
