Sorry.  I'm talking about the relationship between scorpions and humans in November.

But I'm doing all the research now . . . . .

you see it was scorpion "feeding" time at our home yesterday.

[full disclosure this is the Pita's "thing" so NOT mine]

So gross.  But oddly kinda cool too.

Ya, that cricket . . . . . he didn't make it.

But we did see this while home hunting on Sunday

Voted :) Scorpions scare the bejesus out of me, lol! I'd so love to run the RNR LV! I'm debating it now :)

Tri-Living...Together said...

YAY for R&R!! We have on here in Denver I might run.. we'll see.

Kovas said...

I thought you might work in Rock You Like a Hurricane. I didn't realize you were an Urban Blogger.

Marlene said...

Blech! just the image of that scorpion makes me shudder! :P

Voting!!!

Christi said...

We saw a nice lookin' herd of buffalo on our ride and we reminded them that we would be having buffalo steaks once we finished. I don't think they enjoyed that thought much!

Kiley said...

I'm #600!!! I have been following your other blog, I didn't know you had this one. I totally voted for you...again!

Emz said...

Kiley!!!!
Yay!!

Happy. Happy. Emz.

Julie said...

No live animals this weekend, but something was definitely alive in our bird feeder. I had been putting off pulling it down and cleaning it - it's been empty for weeks, but the rain looked like it might let up, so I thought I should take care of business. When I saw what was growing inside of it, I almost threw up. It must have been some type of mold, but it looked like long long black hair...at first I thought it was a weird dead rat or something. NASTY!! I'll take living critters over THAT any day!

Jamoosh said...

Yup, you're scared. Even knowing I signed up for the California International Marathon, you still opted for RnR LV.

Emz said...

J-moo. It's the urban running thing. I thought we were doing Texas. ?!

Stacie said...

Voted!!!!

Vote for me, too!!!
Vote for me, too!!!

I'll be glad when I can stop bugging people :)

A small tornado struck near my girls' school over the weekend and did some crazy damage to some buildings and home of a friend. We went and checked it out afterwards.

LB said...

ew, that thing is kreepy! making my skin crawl and itch just looking at it!

odd thing i did this weekend...rode home on the fender of our new tractor after dinner at our neighbors house. can you say redneck?? yeehaww!!!

Matty O said...

Ummmm had our first bonfire of the year :) Already voted for you.

Alicia said...

The snakes and scorpions on your blog lately are creeping me out! Seriously sends shivers down my spine.

Rock n roll Las Vegas has all the makings of a super unique run this year! Should be fun!

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

this scorpion thing is freaky, but I want to read more? What does that make me?

Carrie said...

Scorpions. Freak. Me. Out.

We've got a Bearded Dragon, but can't do snakes.

I voted already.

According to the Google Reader feed I get of your blog, you've got 715 followers :-)

I'm so totally working on RnR LV. Would be so fun. Gotta figure out my finals schedule first and then I'm in!! Fun!!

Patrick Mahoney said...

my phone must be broken. still no text from the treadmill.

April said...

ick! I don't like scorpions! We have small ones around here but it's very rare that we see them.
voting for you!
An odd thing I did this weekend, I ate sugar cookies and skittles for my carbo load the night before my 10k...not the best idea.;)

Caroline said...

I need to see confirmation of registration for LB!!!

Andrew Opala said...

so how does that work ... the scorpion comes to eat a bite of the cucumber and then you crush it with a lava rock?

Nelly said...

That is great that you are going to be speaking at the blogger conference. Honestly you are the main person that I would want to hear talk - I would love to hear you talk about your 24 hour treadmill experience. I bet people would love to hear about that.

The scorpions on your blog seriously freak me out, I couldn't live in AZ because of them! haha

Most interesting thing this past weekend that I witnessed was the beer mile, I'll do a post on it soon, haha

Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner said...

I want to head to Vegas so badly--poor hubby doesn't seem to want to spend our holiday this year in Vegas with a bunch of blogger women. I have NO idea why. Clearly a dream vacation for him.

it's all about pace said...

that scorpoin picture had me singing "The Circle of Life" song from Lion King...

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

You're at +600! WOO HOO!!!

Of course Im clicking away at every IP address I have for you!

See you in Vegasssssssss!

Michelle said...

OK the snake was bad enough, but now scorpions!?!? Yay for RnR Vegas! Off to vote for ya again ;)

MCM Mama said...

Dude, I even have my husband voting for you at work LOL.

So glad when this thing is over. ;o)

ajh said...

I came around the corner on my bike and there was a moose in the road. Truly awesome!

Ironman By Thirty said...

I saw the sun. Does that count as something out of the ordinary? haha

Thanks again to both you and Peanut for the shirt! Totally going to rock it out at my tri expo on Saturday.

Char said...

Ii think that humans and scorpions would make an excellent topic for a running seminar. Seriously, if I saw a scorpion I'd probably break a few PRs.

House hunting? Are you moving?

Richelle said...

Thank you SO much for the RUN EMZ shirt! I received it in the mail today, and I love the notes from you and Peanut. :)

racing dawn said...

I guess reptiles and insects are the price u pay for gorgeous sunny weather.

Ummm u should just share an itemized daily list of everything u do and eat to be so fabulous. Seriously.

And rnrlv, huh. Guess I better sign up....

Michelle said...

Ick! I had too many encounters with scorpions as a kid - lots of ER visits.

Prairie dogs rock! So that was our unusual sight of the weekend. Yay for the R&R. I so want to run Vegas before we leave this side of the country.

Her Name Is Rio said...

Are you one of the speakers at the summit- that's pretty cool! Yeah, I voted for you even though I'm one of your "competitors". :)

I'd Rather Have a Cupcake said...

I have been following you for a couple months...you are a huge motivation to say the least. I can honestly say "You freakin got this" helped me through my half marathon this weekend! Thanks!

Erika said...

Uhhh! I just can't decide on Vegas!! It was supposed to be my first full last year, but decided to wait for this year and now I'm torn! AGGHH!
I once saw a snake eating a frog although I didn't know what it was at first because I was mowing and thought it was a crazy lizzard of some sort. Nearly wet myself that day.

Jill said...

I woke up to a scorpion crawling on my leg when I was in Big Bend, TX a thousand years ago with geology field camp - I have been in therapy ever since!

jymmebe said...

Of course I voted!!!

Uh, ya . . . looking at houses?!? What the . . . ?!?

Tricia said...

Karine said...

Just found out the voting is open until 5 PM Pacific time. Still time to vote for Emz. Let's keep her in the top 10!

Big Daddy Diesel said...

SO many people are trying to get me to sign up for RnR LV
