In Florida it rains often. In fact, in the summer months, it could rain at any moment, last for 15 minutes, and then the sun comes out again, bright and hot. It’s humid and tropical and the perfect climate for all sorts of critters. Like this one…
That was taken beside the small pond in my yard, the one beside my back door. It’s loaded with frogs, even tree frogs. When we first put the pond in I planted all kinds of elephant ears, plumeria, crotons and some potho’s for ground cover. I wanted it to look tropical. It does. It also grows like crazy and is a constant pain in my ass. I am forever trimming something but I love that pond and the tropical lush forest I’ve created.
Know who else loves it? I mean besides my frog friends….
Black Racers are non-poisonous and actually helpful because they eat rats, other snakes, insects, and unfortunately, they also eat frogs. I’ve been told they are not really aggressive and run away if you come near them. Well, that’s not true. I tried to move one of those boogers away from the door with a rake and it sort of reared back and lunged toward me. It scared the bejesus out of me.
Know what else?
They do bite. And I know this for sure. Because I googled it. Google knows everything. I love you Google, I really do. If you ever want to find out about someone, the best place to look would be their Google searches.
I’m just sayin.
For the past year, my favorite shorts have been the Brooks Pure Project 3.5” Shorts. They’re very comfortable, and I seriously love any running shorts with pockets in them, that’s a major bonus. I also have a Brooks running skirt that I love, but for running, it’s these shorts.
But at 75 bucks a pair, I only had one pair for a really long time. Too rich for my cheap blood. I got a second pair on sale for around 50 bucks last month but just this week the best thing ever happened, the value God’s smiled down upon me.
I got the 3 pairs you see above for $26.99 each!
I love you 6pm.com!
There is nothing better than finding your favorite running gear on sale! You know what would be better though? If I could actually run right now!
In other news, MacGyver and I went to the weigh and pay last week. We wanted to show my BIL what it’s all about. Everyone found some decent things but MacGyver had perhaps the best find of all time because MacGyver found…..
An iPod! A classic iPod loaded with music.
We brought it home and charged it and I put it in my computer and pulled up the files and opened up the pictures on it. I really, really wanted to save them and show them to you but MacGyver said it wouldn’t be a good thing to post pictures of actual surgeries and open wounds on a public blog. How did he know those were the ones I wanted to share?
So, he basically ruined it for you and now I have no pictures of actual intestines to show you. But I’ve seen them and they’re pretty awesome. Who knew surgeons actually took pictures for their iPods? Interesting.
Anyway, because the screen doesn’t light up, we put the iPod in my car so that we could see the names of the songs as we listened to them and I have been forever damaged.
Remember how I said you can find out a lot about people based on their Google searches? Well, the same can be said about their choices in music! I will never in my life be able to have surgery without the imagery of my surgeon singing the absolute worst of Nickelback followed by the 1993 Billboard Hot 100 song by Tag Team, “Whoomp, there it is”.
EEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWW! I will never be the same.
That’s it. That’s all I got. I need to get to work and I’ve got to do some
Google Searches research.
