Betcha Can’t Guess

November 4, 2011 · 53 comments

1. Guess how much self control I can display? I bought baby Clif bars with the intention of portion control.

Then I ate three.

2. Guess who’s a dirty rotten liar? There is no way some of these screen shots on damnyouautocorrect.com are legit. It’s just not real life for parents to be using this language. I’m outing all you sneaky teenagers who change their friends names to “mom” in their phone and have them text inappropriate things. Sneaky is what you are.

However, this one is probably for real, and it made the immature 14 year old boy in me giggle.

3. Guess what I didn’t know? Google has a blog search. I wasn’t aware.

4. Guess where I’ll be for Turkey Day? I’m going back to my hometown in New Jersey for Thanksgiving and staying with Maggie‘s family. I couldn’t be more psyched to see all my high school friends again

5. Guess why I’m nuts? I just registered a 5k on Thanksgiving Day. Normal since I’m still sore from Sunday’s marathon. Mag and I agreed we will most likely run it hungover. We also agreed neither of us has a problem with that.

6. Guess what I found?WTF is this? And why does it exist?

7. Speaks for itself.

8. Guess where you can find me this evening?

Juuust chillin’ over with Julie at Peanut Butter Fingers. Look for a guest post from me this evening as J preps to dominate the Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Half.

(Guess who is probably disturbed I put my face on her body? Julie’s sister. Whooopsiedaises.)

9. Guess what we’re going to be tonight? Since we ran the Marine Corps Marathon last Sunday and had to be sleeping runners for Halloween, I’m attending a “Halloween Part II” party tonight. Free hugs to whomever guesses what Bethany and I are dressing as tonight.

Hint: They’re coordinating, but not matching.

Good luck guessing. I’ll be back with lots of pictures.

I always think those Damn you Autocorrects are fake. I get typos on my phone, but nothing like those.
For Halloween you’re being pregnant ballerinas in a rain storm? I don’t know how else to tie those things together.

I actually thought that WAS a pic of you and Julie, haha!
I know what you mean about DYAC and the “fake parents”. However, it is the parents texts that make me laugh the most! Boner is an excellent example of this.
Pumped fo’ yo’ guest post, and hope you have a fab weekend!
PS – running cures my hangovers, all the time. I frequently run hungover to pick up my car that I left the night before. It’s good times.

Alyssa- so glad I stumbled upon your website in your Peanut Butter Fingers guest post! I think I’m gonna have to start reading your blog everyday along with Julie’s. I just ran my first marathon in Chicago on October 9th, so I completely understand your encouraging words to those who haven’t reached this milestone. I have looked into the marathon that you did and I now that I’ve read your review, I think I may have to give it a go!

YES! you better keep me updated and let me know how it goes!

Congratulations on your marathon! Anyone who can run that far is my hero and a huge superstar. I am so glad you did a guest post on PBF otherwise I might never have found you. Loving your blog and can’t wait to look around some more.

I found your blog through your guest post at PBF, and I must say I’ve spent thirty minutes of poker night checking it out. From your References to The Office to your totally awesome parents….I’m hooked! My friends are totally angry though :-)

Looking forward to a great new read and much- needed running motivation!

Hey Alyssa!
1) This is a hilarious post and I totally do that with Larabars– they are so good I eat 3 at a time after long runs
2) I found your blog by reading your marathon post on Julie’s page and guessss whatttt, I’m running my first full marathon in ATHENS, Greece next Sunday!! I’m so excited/nervous for a million reasons but that post was so inspiring and reading all your marathon-related posts on your blog has been amazing too! Just what I needed to stumble on right before my race to keep from psyching myself out. So thank you so much!! I feel like all the super awesome running girls in the blog world are my friends and we’re all cheering each other on- I’m just sad I didn’t find your blog earlier in the training process. But for the next one! I will be reading and commenting for the whole time.

xo, Jane

I’m obsessed with Damn You Auto Correct. Even if they’re not all real they entertain me during the workday :)

P.S. I was super jealous when I saw that (photoshopped) pic of you and Julie. I thought there was a dance party going on with two of my favorite bloggers and I can NOT miss out on that! ;)
