MY MORNING ROUTINE: 1… long weekend caused me to oversleep by TWO HOURS. Meaning I missed my morning run with Murph AND drove to work instead of biked. I swore I wouldn’t let it become a habit for my car to be an easy back-up, so I’m gonna have to be more hardcore about going to sleep early and actually listening to my alarm.
RIDING A HARLEY WITH HEELS: 8. Would’ve earned a 10 if they were a little fancier because it would have made it even more hilarious and out of place. However the sheer skill needed to maneuver a motorcycle while wearing any sort of heels earns an 8. Plus the randomness made me smile 🙂
KNOT-A-LEASH: 8.5 This weekend I discovered an awesome leash made by Ruffwear. The rope reminds me of climbing rope, with a little more stretch and reflective material in it, perfect for late night walks. It’s a tiny bit longer than my training leash making it better for biking, has a soft handle, and even has a carabener on the end. Coming with it is ‘Knot-a-collar’, which is totally tied with two knots that allow it to stretch if the pup gets it caught on something. BRILLIANT. Would earn a 10 if they had more colors and was a little more affordable (leash is $24.95 and the collar is $9.95). Check it out here
(PHOTOS THAT SHOW UP SUPER BIG AND WON’T ADJUST IN SIZE: 4. I kinda like the quality, but geez. Seems a little excessive. Plus, I like control, and this picture has taken it all away. Clearly below a 5)
OFFICE BROWNIES: 9.5 Nothing makes the first day of a work week better than a sweet surprise in the office kitchen. Today I was tempted by the most delicious brownies ever, and was almost immediately grateful I gave in. Soft, chocolately with a creamy chocolate frosting. And homemade. Only thing keeping it from a 10 is the tiny bit of guilt that comes along with it…
THIS CLIMBING HOLD: 1. I’m being a jerk here because I’m sure it’s really a fine hold that ‘challenges your skill and finger strength’ however right now I hate it and we’re not speaking. So I give it a 1.
RICHARD’S CHALK EYEBROWS: 10. Purely for entertainment value.
LISA’S ABILITY TO CREATE A CHALK STORM BY INSISTING ON USING LOOSE CHALK: 10 for ability, 5 for annoyingness. Her smile makes up for some of it.
P.S. I’m still winning the auction for the fanny pack… keep your fingers crossed!
