"Tag" - Fast Eddie

Well thanks to Matty-O [MO, to me, says me]....you guys get seven more not so interesting facts about me.

1.  yes.  I.  do.  love.  my.  Ed.  Treadmill.  running.  is.  for.  me.

2.  I will not play Monopoly with the Pita.  He.  Cheats.  but.  I.  never.  lose.

3.  I'd rather stick pencils in my eyes than go to Home Depot.

4.  First job I ever had was working at Baskin Robbins.  Lasted 4 days.  or was it 3?!

5.  I don't wear contacts or glasses.  Perfect vision.  Tried failed vision tests until I was 14 then gave up.  Those eye doctors are cleverishly sneaky/smart.  Or I'm just bad at lying.

6.  I'm bad at lying.  Learned that at a very young age.  One of my favorite quotes is, "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything." - Mark Twain

7.  Emily & Ajh ----- I finally.  finally. f i n a l l y .  got this yesterday from my new boyfriend [post man].
Awwwwwwwwwwwww.  ya.  Boston.  Baby.

NOW "tag" you are it......

Kelly Leigh said...

yay for the boston! and I didn't know anyone ever won monopoly, i thought it was just something you played until you got bored. Leave it to you to even win at monopoly.

Marlene said...

Aren't ajh and Emily just the best? Running/blogging Mom/daughter team... too cool.

I can't stand Monopoly. I'd rather play Candy Land!

Happy Weekend!!! :D

RockStarTri said...

My 12yo daughter came home from school and told me they ran during gym. I asked how far and she said she needed to get off the tmill after .25 miles to let someone else take a turn. She also said that they wouldn't let anyone set it faster than 6mph

Is this a sign of the apocalypse or a sign on the future?

Emz said...

RST ---- the future ..... For...... Sure. Save your $$$$ now!!

JL - love that. You bet cha. Polka dot arm warmers too?! ;)

Karine said...

In my dreams I run with Emz, but actually I prefer hugging the cute girl when she crosses the finish line.

Amy said...

I LOVED Monopoly with my family - we have crazy alliances and games that go on for days, but I hate playing with the BF. He cheats too.

I also have perfect vision but seriously wanted glasses when I was a kid. (Sometimes I still like to try them on).

termite said...

love that your first job lasted 4 days! lol..
congrats on Boston!!! I'm still waiting.. :(
i've been out of pocket lately and have missed your wonderful blog!

xo

Caratunk Girl said...

Wahoo on Boston!! Awesome. I think that is a riot that the first job lasted 4 days.

Monopoly is way too long of a game for someone like me with the attention span of a...a...puppy?

XLMIC said...

Okay... I played! I love Monopoly... but my husband won't play with me because I am RUTHLESS! Congrats on your Boston Acceptance! How awesome!!!

I've never been on a treadmill. I think I'm lucky, I've never needed one. Yay for Boston! You'll run a super time there!

Molly said...

Yay Boston!!!!!

Karen R said...

You. Boston. How exciting!!

Adam said...

Soooooooooooooooo, somehow your blog got removed from my reader!!!! So yeah, fixed that. I'm going to assume that you're still kicking treadmill ass and just read going forward. :)

Sorry about that!!

Her Name is Rio said...

That must feel so GREAT to get that confirmation in the mail!

Jamoosh said...

Ever since Home depot started selling Martha Stewart crap...just.can't.do.it.

busyrunningmama said...

I hate Home Depot too - I tell my husband that it give me an anxiety attack so I don't have to go - sooo funny - Even funnier, I don't mind Lowes at all.....neater and more organized maybe?? I don't know, I am just weird!!

Big Daddy Diesel said...

I dont like Home Depot too

Yay for Boston

Black Knight said...

Boston, the marathon of my impossible dreams!
And the treadmill is my nightmare!

Kris Tina said...

I have a question - can you give me a good treadmill recommendation? I LOVE to run on a treadmill and want one for home. Maybe you already have a post about the third love of your life - but if not - can you help me out?

One Crazy Penguin said...

Woohoo! Way to be an official Boston-er! Thanks for the tag. I'll have my list up sometime in the next week. I'll have to brainstorm good facts!

PS - I *always* lose at monopoly...even if I cheat. It is the one game that seems to be out to get me. Now Go Fish is another story entirely....
