I had a ‘Take Care Tuesday’ post all scheduled, but after my rant yesterday I decided to shift things around to have something a little lighter for today, the ‘take care’ post on Thursday with tomorrow’s post as yet undecided.
Social Media is an interesting thing for bloggers … many have accounts on all media related to their blog, unlike me, I’m just ‘me’ everywhere. Anyway, some accounts use ‘robo-blasts’ to post older blog items to their Facebook and Twitter feeds on occasion … and generally with no differentiation between whether a post is new or old.
This has caused problems for some bloggers when contests come up in the auto-feed, but generally I enjoy them because it is a great way to randomly catch posts I missed. That happened the other day when a post from Amanda popped up on Twitter, and I thought it was great fun … so I decided to do it! I’m sure this sort of post was all the rage a couple of years ago, but I wasn’t blogging then, so deal with it! haha
[update: I didn’t realize I hadn’t done a ‘unique’ item]
A is for age: 48 years old, Lisa still calls me ‘one of her boys’.
B is for breakfast today: Greek yogurt, fruit (dates and prunes), whole wheat tortilla with peanut butter.
C is for currently craving: a sweet, ripe, juicy pear. The last bag I bought was mediocre … and I still have a couple left.
D is for dinner tonight: Meatloaf and mashed potatoes
E is for favorite type of exercise: Running
F is for irrational fear: Getting trapped and stuck
G is for gross food: I’ll go with clams, as they are the only thing my body has a negative reaction to
H is for hometown: born in Stoughton, MA, a southern suburb of Boston.
I is for something important: my marriage
J is for current favorite jam: Strawberry? Oh, you mean music! I have been re-tooling my iPod lately, going back to try to emulate the music I had on there a decade ago, and one gem I have really been digging is Prime Directive from the Dave Holland Quintet, from a 1999 recording. Check it out:
K is for kids: two boys – Danny (almost 18) and Chris (16.5)
L is for current location: Horseheads, NY, near Corning
M is for the most recent way you spent money: Paying mortgage … not sexy, but has to be done!
N is for something you need: new mattress! I really don’t want to discuss
O is for occupation: statistical engineer for Corning
P is for pet peeve: dishonesty
Q is for a quote: ‘Find Excess Within Moderation’ – this got me through weight loss when I was 23, I still indulged in things I loved, but found the joy in small, infrequent portions.
S is for favorite healthy snack: Can I just say fruit? OK, I will single out pears. I just love them
T is for favorite treat: ICE CREAM
U is for something that makes you unique: Thanks to Lisa for noting I had left this blank … I would definitely go with ‘non-injured runner’. 25.5 years at this point, estimated more than 30,000 miles … no injuries.
V is for favorite vegetable: Corn … yeah, I know it is about the least nutritional veggie. I also love asparagus
W is for today’s workout: 9 mile run
X is for X-rays you’ve had: last one was chest for a football-related hairline fracture, in 1981
Y is for yesterday’s highlights: Coffee on the porch with Lisa, breakfast with the whole crew, relazing chat with Lisa, and a few hours of cleaning.
Z is for your time zone: EST, New York time 🙂
Pick a letter and tell me something about YOU!
