Friday Things, Boston and the Unimaginable

Okay, I feel like I can write again now.  It's kinda late in the day for Friday things, but I was a bit distracted by the news today and I've been a little quiet over here in my teeny corner of the internet.  After Monday, I just couldn't articulate a single thought about my feelings on what happened in Boston, let alone any other random topic.  I tried several times to start a post and just failed.  Here are two unfailingly awesome posts: Outside the Comfort Zone, and Sweat Once a Day.  I think anyone who's ever participated in an athletic event or a community event (which is everyone?) has the same feelings.  It being a road race just made things hit a little closer to home.  Unimaginable...

It feels like there is some closure tonight with the suspects being caught, but man, this week in general...  Yeah, I still don't have a lot of words, so I'll just share some things that made me smile or laugh this Friday.    

I shared this on Twitter yesterday, it bears repeating:

Just in case you haven't seen the Onion and Gawker articles making the rounds this week, click on the links.

I never watch Hells Kitchen, but I'm a big fan of the Swedish Chef:

Hopefully this has made you smile; and now, here are a few ways to help:

And I'll add a little throwback song from the early 90s onto the playlist from a native to Boston band, the Lemonheads.  Into Your Arms is a sweet and reassuring song that brings me back to my carefree youth. 

Happy freaking Friday y'all.

  1. I love love Colbert <3 I had a hard time trying to write about my own thoughts as well. It seems most really don't know how to process it all, but at least there is some closure in terms of the capture. Many good wishes to you in your Eugene race!
