Funny Munnday?

March 26, 2012 · 43 comments

I tried to make those words go together better. Forgive me.

I had this post ready for Friday; however, I had to give my two cents on the Hunger Games movie premiere. SO, for today, Happy Monday!

Brightoom answered my plea for race photos with a few doozies of the Shamrock Half Marathon.

The moral to this story?

There are decent race photos…

And there are very, very bad race photos.

Looks like I was really goin’ for that finish line, huh? YOIKES.

The best part is Anastasia has a matching finish line face. We coordinated since we had the matching tutus. I’m not posting her photo in fear she’ll real-life unfriend me and possibly kill me in my sleep.

But, as I’ve told you before, I have no shame. So, there’s mine. You can print it our for runspiration if you’d like. I challenge you to make that face at your next finish line. I’ll make a collage of all of all the pretty photos.

Also, a few weeksa go, Janetha introduced me to my favorite tumblr to date. I’m completely obsessed with it and bounce in my chair anxiously awaiting new posts in my Google Reader. I spent a few hours going through the entire site (yes, every. single. post), and I had a really hard time composing myself.

If you haven’t already heard my raving about it, it’s “What Should We Call Me.” Now, say goodbye to a solid 2 hours of productivity and enjoy the laughs you’re about to have.

I find myself rolling when I find so many instances to which I can relate, such as the following. I do all of these.

When I see the waiter walking with a tray of food and it turns out to be mine

When I’m looking for my phone
"

White iPhones and white comforters are not a good mix.

When I realize I just locked myself out of my apartment

When you suddenly turn into a ballerina when you want to show someone something exciting

"
COME HITHER, MY FRIEND!

When you almost slip but you luckily regain your balance
"

When your favorite song comes on

At first you’re like

And then you’re like

When someone tells me I can have a bite

I tell ya, it’s like looking into a mirror.

I don’t know who this girl is, but I really, really like her. No go waste a few hours of your life. Laughing’s good for the soul, especially on Mondays.

HAWT race pics, even the serious-faced one!

I discovered WSWCM a few weeks ago, too, and have lost SO MUCH TIME to that site. But is it really wasting or losing time when you’re loving every second of it? NAW.

So I found this site through you RIGHT before my last final – which was CRUEL. I wasted hours of my life also going through that entire site. I love it. It’s hilarious. And yes, it is like a mirror. I want to share them all with the world.

my race photos? or the tumblr? ;)

…no, I completely agree. I could probably go through them all a second time and still be rolling.

that site is everything. And if it makes you feel better, if I ever had pictures of myself taken while running they would probably put me on suicide watch after seeing my expressions.

You look so cute in your race photos! I’m pretty sure I would not be smiling if I was photographed while running! And I’m glad there is someone out there as obsessed with that site as I am… I can’t get enough! I’ve never seen the ballet one before but that’s fantastic! So funny- whoever is behind it is amazing.

I just spent an inordinate amount on time on tumblr… only to have one of my bosses walk into my cube and ask what I was doing. It was totally worth the scrambling “uhhh hi just on my break” fjdkafjfjdkajfda (insert awkward conversation here)… so funny!! Thanks for sharing it and making the end of my Monday like 13892839x better! :)

are you still running in your original pureconnects or have you replaced them? I got mine in November and they’re basically shot.. :(

Reply

33 Alyssa @ Life of bLyss March 27, 2012 at 8:30 am

nope! if you look above, you can see I’m still rockin’ them. :) I got mine in November, too! but it’s actually almost time I replaced them. for me, that’s a typical life for a running shoe (4-5 months or so).

Reply

34 Robbi Ann March 27, 2012 at 8:22 pm

I got a new pair of running shoes over the weekend and my shins are killing me! I wasn’t huge on the pureconnects until I ran without them :(
Oh, and did you end up liking those zensah compression sleeves? I’m thinking of getting a pair if they’re what they’re cracked up to be.

Dear Alyssa – thank you. I am not at work laughing out loud like an idiot and everyone is staring and judging. I am dying. DYING at those snippets from “What We Shoudl Call Me.”

I especially love and relate to the “When you suddenly turn into a ballerina when you want to show someone something exciting”

Love!
