Tangent Thursday

My weeks have been super crazy lately so I apologize for my lack of presence. Or maybe you prefer it that way ๐Ÿ˜‰

All I’ll say is that Kyle and I are getting closer to become home owners ๐Ÿ™‚

Tuesday WORKOUT:

50 minute tempo, which equaled roughly 5 miles

This time I was properly hydrated so I didn’t feel the needย to snatch juice boxes from kids in strollers as I ran by them.

And because I’m feeling random today…


  • I’m “excited” to see how the speed work (1-2 times/week max) will affect my training. And by “excited,” I mean I’m excited to see results. No, I am not actually excited about speed work. I saw results while training for my half marathons, so let’s hope it’s the same ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • One of my biggest pet peeves is when people talk to me like I’m an idiot or baby me.
    • Sample situation: If you send me an email, do NOT text me, telling me that you just sent me an email. I will want to cut you just a little bit.
  • If you haven’t heard, California is in a major drought. At work we are trying to cut back on water usage. As a member of our Green Team, I suggested that we turn off the automatic flush function on the toilets because we all know those things go off prematurely (aka you have to flush >1x). I got a response saying that we cannot do that because it is a “sanitation issue” (aka people won’t flush). Excuse me, but who are these people who don’t remember to flush in public? And please don’t ever invite me to their house.
  • Sick kitty update: Snickers’ tumor hasn’t grown too much (according to our last vet visit). Her kidneys, however, aren’t doing so well because of her diet change (to help with stomach problems). So we are now administering subcutaneous fluids at home, as needed, and you can really tell it makes her feel better. Ever try to inject your cat yourself?

    Not my cat but you get the idea
  • I’m going to Kauai this summer which = swim suits, soย right now I’m trying to eliminate candy/desserts from my diet. I don’t eat much of it to begin with, but this is so freaking hard #dramatic. Ironically it is National Candy Month. Oh and yesterday I was given 2 macarons by coworkers and of course I ate them because I have 2 rules in life:
    1. Be polite
    2. Never turn down macarons
  • And finally, a huge happy birthday to Kyle’s sister, Ashley (she’s in the middle to the left of Kyle)!

Does it bug you when people treat you like an idiot?

Automatic toilets- like them?

Ever give your cat an injection?

  1. People treat me like I’m an idiot all of the time… I feel like saying just because I like fashion and care about my appearance doesn’t make me a space cadet! FYI I have a masters!!! But it’s like they can’t see past my fabu sock bun lol

    I HATE automatic flushing toilets! They always go off way before they should! I agree who doesn’t know the rules of potty training… You go, you wipe, you flush, you wash your hands… Simple.

    1. PAHAHA!! We need to get you a shirt that says, “Don’t let this sock bun fool you.” ๐Ÿ˜‰

      LOL exactly!! It’s like, you do it at home (hopefully)! Why is it all of a sudden a huge task to flush the toilet at work?!

  2. I never thought about how annoying those automatic toilets are but now I am so with you on this! I find it so annoying when they flush a dozen times while you are stuck in that gross cube. And you are right, what the heck is the problem with having to do it yourself? Have we gotten that lazy that we can’t even flush a toilet on our own?! This made me laugh. By the way, you look amazing… the candy!

  3. That is crazy about the reason they won’t stop the automatic flush. For what it’s worth, it was a really good idea! It’s pretty sad that you can’t even trust people to flush the toilet…

  4. I hate when people treat me like an idiot…I get the “is your kid doing that” she should really be doing this….
    And…automatic flushes drive me nuts anyway!!! (Yeah for your home owner stuff)

  5. Not a huge fan of auto flush toilets…they tend to go off randomly resulted in a butt wash. They also have a weak flush, which means a double flush to get the job done when one “normal” flush would have been just fine.

    I am an idiot, so i don’t let it bother me ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Ahhh hat is blogging without life ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeyyy, I’m glad your training switcharoo is workin well.

    Who knew non-automatic toilets were “unsanitary” haha

    Last thought- candy > everything ๐Ÿ™‚

    Poor snickers, I hope he’s comfortable at least, although there sure is nothing comfortable about an injection

    1. LOL I knew you would convince me to keep eating candy ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Snickers is doing really well with the fluids. We only have to do it ~1x/week right now so it’s not so bad. It’s totally worth it because you can seriously tell how good she feels.

  7. I HATE automatic toilets. Our rec center has them, and every time I change my clothes in the stall, the toilets flushes like 4 times. My first concern is that the other people in the bathroom think I am having some sort of problem. Second concern can be the water usage.

  8. Auto toilets always flush too soon! It drives me crazy!!!! Also, I hate when people assume I don’t know how computers work. i feel rude interrupting them, though. So…I just fume silently.

  9. I have a baby face. Since I work in the financial industry, sometimes my new clients question my knowledge. From time to time I do feel like shaking them and screaming, “Not only that I’ve been working for the bank for over 6 years now. It’s me who should treat you like a baby because it’s you who doesn’t know how to manage money, not me.” I swear I’m not mean…

    I think you came up with a great idea! The do flush prematurely. What can I tell you… There are many dumb and lazy people out there…. I swear I am NOT mean… LOL!

  10. I have a love/hate relationship with automatic toilets- on one hand I don’t have to stand on one leg to flush so that’s a plus but on the other (and this is gross) I had a micro teacher tell us never to face the toilet when it automatic flushes because “a plume of fecal matter raises into the air” and I always hear her saying that when I’m in a restroom with them. So disgusting.
    Yay about kitty! Give her lots of kisses ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. PAHAHA OMG sooooo gross! Another reason to get rid of the auto flush! I like to open the stall door and stand at the exit, flush with my foot, and quickly exit the stall.

      Aww thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll give her all the kisses!

  11. We have automatic flushing toilets at work and they usually don’t work properly (i.e. surprise flushes all the freaking time). But I actually understand why your work wouldn’t shut them off…we have very disgusting people here who definitely don’t flush and make a mess (I mean…if you sprinkle when you tinkle, please wipe the seat. seriously!). It’s so gross!!!

    1. PAHAHA I need to make a sign that says, “If you sprinkle when you tinkle, please wipe the seat.” HILARIOUS!! I agree with you! Totally get why they can’t turn off the auto flush, but it’s just absurd WHY they can’t. Laziness is what it comes down to.
