The Sweetest Thing

Random 3 Things for Thursday:

1. Shamus saw this fellow on the way to work this week...look at those muscles, magnificent!



2. Running in races is awesome for so many reasons, but sometimes and extra bonus is a technical t-shirt memorializing your journey. Some (funderson and Shamus) will tell you that I have some issues with keeping such shirts "stain-free."

Exhibit A:

Sorry sideways, but you get the gist...last year's Sage Burner, not even a year

Exhibit B:
A shirt from the Mountain Air two years ago, I still swear on a stack of Bibles that no matter what it looks like, I have NOT wiped my bum with this shirt.

So, when I did the Desert Rats a couple weeks ago, this was in our swag bag:



As we are sitting at the campfire after the race funderson says, "No eating or cooking in this shirt." Me, "Done and done," and off we go to Arizona. I decide to wear it out to a bar for a beer one evening in Tempe...I am technically not breaking any rules as drinking a pint wasn't on the list. We are standing up to leave and my elbow is wet. I look down and ding danged if there are n't brown spots on the elbow. Thank goodness for spray n' wash, but I am pretty sure that either I don't get to wear it or it's going to be dirty soon.

3. My mum sent me another installment of Horoscopes from her local paper and they are doosies, yet again, so here goes:

Taurus: "They say you can't go home again, but you will prove everyone wrong when you are forced to move back in with your parents next month. Don't sweat it; I'm sure there are lots of chicks out there that dig 33-year-old men who live with their folks." Phew, at least I'm not a dude...

My favorite even though it's not my birthday: Sagittarius: "You need to lay the f@*k low for a little while okay? If anyone finds out what you are up to we are all going down. Stay at your aunt's house, do whatever you need to do, but I'm just telling you, if they find you it's all over." How the crap is this a horoscope??????????

If you'd like to know yours just let me know your birthday....HA!

Big Ram -- Cool as hell! I see dear around my work form time to time and we have Raccoons living behind my apartment and stealing cat food, but umm . . . that just doesn't even come close. Wow!

I love a free tech shirt . . . like mana from heaven! Unfortunately, for every nice tech shirt, I get four of the most heinously bright colored, 100% cotton, soon to be in the good will donation bin tee-shirts. Muh!

I would love to read Cancer's horoscope!

JessiePants said...

We supposedly have raccoons, but have yet to see one up here and miss their little bandit faces.
Agreed on the cotton tee's
Cancer - "Spread the word about indy Planet (name of newspaper) by spray painting our name on public buildings and certain chain restaurants that we despise." What the hug?

Have fun in Tempe, that is were I am from

Kovas said...

Love the horoscopes! Pisces?

JessiePants said...

BDD - Tempe was nice, we had a great time!
Kovas - Pisces "I'm not writing any horoscopes for you Pisces this month. The last two Pisces I met were total buttholes and until further notice, I am done with them. I may try to have Pisces removed from the horoscopes completely." Sorry you got hosed...

funderson said...

1-ooo hopefully they're making a comeback! (so Sheamus and Aidan can shoot one of course)
2-You are a nerd and you totally crack me up. Seriously...that Asics shirt is ridiculous. SO happy to finally have met someone worse than I AND you should have known having a pint counted as "anywhere near the kitchen"...
3-As a Sagitarius, I totally understand that as a horoscope..why do you think I'm going out of town??
Also, I could have written the Pisces one... Seriously, Kovas has a long way to go to redeem Pisces in my book...

funderson said...

OH...Uneeda is requesting Scorpio..

JessiePants said...

Uneeda - Scorpio " I'm not supposed to tell you this until July, but you only have 7 months to live. I thought that giving you a 3 month head start was the least I could do. Oh, and just to be clear, that 7 months starts now, not in July." Man this person is mean...

JessiePants said...

funderson - 2. Seriously I really don't know how the Asics shirt happened and the bar was at least 100 feet away from the kitchen. Sort of like a restraining order...no dice?

sbrt said...

Its not fair! Even your sheep/goat monster things are bigger, better and scarier than the ones in the UK =)

JessiePants said...

Steve - oh no they are the same size as your sheep/goat monsters...it's just the zoom, but the red eyes and fire breath are for real.

magbueno said...

Take care of that marvelous shirt...or you´ll have to run again to get a new one!

JessiePants said...

Ooo magbueno, that sounds like a challenge!

Chris K said...

Why would you even keep that Asics shirt? I bet Shaggy and Gandalf wouldn't even sleep on it. Yikes.

JessiePants said...

Actually Chris K., I WAS sorting out stuff to get rid of/used for cleaning, but NOW I'm totally keeping it and wearing it...
