Just had to chime in, I have a full yard covered with weeds at the moment if you feel like getting some cross-training in ;)
(I like the natural green ground cover - my HOA, not so much in agreement)

CautiouslyAudacious said...

Totally agree with you on raisins in cookies!!! Now yard work, yuck!!! The problem is both hubs & I hate yard work but that's ok our dog has taken it upon herself to destroy, I mean maintain our back yard! Oh Oh I see I was tagged... Will probably get around to it on Wed....

Michelle said...

Great list. Your raisin cookie trust issues seriously made me laugh out loud...I feel the same way :)

pensive pumpkin said...

raisins are concentrated evil. dried up, concentrated evil.

Jason said...

Damn who knew the raisin was hated this much.

Oh and before I go any further....they might be it. Go GIANTS! Super Bowl Baby!!!!

Last Super Bowl win was in the dessert there......

Caroline said...

I love this! so fun!!!

It would have been way better if the numbers were in Pig Latin but that's just me.

Also if one of the 11 was " I now see the light and I am a Dukie forever and ever"

Lip stuff: I use the same! I have 12 tubes all over the house and my car and also in Bill's car, camera bag, garages, everywhere.

Zaneta @ Runner's Luck said...

haha... I LOVE when people get tagged because I LOVE reading these kinds of posts!! :)
I have to chew gum when I work out too and if I forget it, I have a minor panic attack ;) jk jk...
Althought, I did lose my gum on my 18 miler once and my mom drove a few miles from our house just to give me another piece ;)

Emz said...

Emz said...

Oh man Pita & Bill could lament all about the superfluous bigelo bottles!!
On Duke...sorry not even on my death bed.

You really like shoes? Really??

Michael said...

Number 1 is totally hilarious!! And I completely agree!


So much fun! I kind of love yard work too, but I hate that it seems neverending.

Thanks for the tag! I have been hoping someone would throw one my way.

Patrick Mahoney said...

Raisins. Papaya. Arbys?

Evolving Through Running said...

I crave Arby's and Taco Bell when I want to make myself sick - so I guess the net result is the same.

Unknown said...
