You could tell by my attitude that I'm most definitely from New York

poHov - I love you and all but I am sick of this song! Don't get me wrong, I loved it when it first came out and blasted it like the proud New Yorker that I am. I just got really sick of it, especially after we won the World Series.

So I told my marathoner best friend that I was planning to run the 2012 NYC Marathon with her. She didn't really take me seriously. I mean I cannot blame her, she's seen me like this before - all gongho over something to just lose all motivation in a week or two. Also I think she felt that I was underestimating how hard it really is to run one, which I am not. That's why I am giving myself nearly three years to accomplish this. I feel that I might be able to do this, especially if I use running as a way to lose weight. Marathoner offered many tips and to help me train and even to just learn how to run but she was still slightly skeptical. Cannot say I blame her.

So I hung out with one of my other best friends who from here on shall be referred to as Dora the Explorer since tha main thing we do together is explore Staten Island. Dora had some fabulous news - she was offered for the job she went for! So I rubbed her forehead for some good luck that I am offered the job that I went. I cannot even tell you what this job will do for me - it will seriously make my year! I must say, 2010 so far has not been a bad year. However, we are only 5 days in. I have managed to not speak with Summer Fling since the New Year which is great. Honestly, if its meant to be then he'll miss me and contact me. If not, then I know. Life is just way to short to deal with any man's bullshit.

I was watching the BL season premiere tonight. In July I went to the open casting call in the city for shits and giggles. You are not interviewed alone, they put you at a table and see how you interact with the group. I was over powered by two very loud, obnoxious women from Long Island. While this was going on past contestants were walking around observing us. When I went to leave I was stopped by two of them who told me that their job there was to see who stood out to them and I stood out to both of them! They said that I definitely had the look that the show was going for and should submit a tape because I really didn't stand out during the interview. (well duh, I was being over powered by two blonde wooly mammoths) So needless to say, I was estatic! However, the dates of the filming clashed with Marathoner's wedding so I did not send one in figuring it was not meant to be. I think just knowing that I could have made it meant the world to me. Even Minute Man was proud of me and I was debating on whether or not to tell him about it. This is the season that I would have been on and when I saw them weigh in in front of all of their friends and families I breathed the largest sigh of relief! I guess things really do happen for a reason because I would have NOT been able to do that.

Meeting two of my DD's (sorority sisters) for lunch and some shopping tomorrow so I'm going to go to bed now!

"Wherever you are - whenever its right, you'll come out of nowhere and into my life. I just haven't met you yet"

Heeellooo Michael Buble. Not a fan of you but I LOVE this song!

Hey! My best friend actually ran her first marathon this year (6 days before her wedding too!) and she went from never running before to being able to complete and run during the entire marathon, so ANYTHING is possible!
