    Girl I've been flirting with her got dumped by her boyfriend (pretty much the only thing preventing sex between us)

    But he dumped her because he snooped through her stuff and discovered us flirting, so now she's pissed at me.

    So close :(

    Just spent almost an hour on the phone with Air France trying to correct a mistake they made in my flight reservations. In the course of making the "corrections," they made more mistakes. At one point, they were sending me to Stockholm as my final destination. (As many of you know, Stockholm is not the same as Antwerp, which is my actual final destination.) I'm still not entirely confident that they solved the problem.

    Wait, why is she pissed at you? Did you trick her into flirting or something?

    yeah, me too.


    Do what you love, never work a day in your life. :slayer:

    ...

    Just got off the phone with the marathon committee. It turns out that to defer my marathon registration to 2014 means I lose the entry fee altogether, they just hold my spot for the next time and I pay full price again. As a repeat early-entry time qualifier, this means nothing to me. I am already qualified for guaranteed early entry to 2014.

    So, I guess it's the half then. Too bad I'm not even ready for that. :( This time last year I was running Sunday 13-milers.

    Well, this is a two-part answer. Part (1) begins in April/May. That's where I've recovered from the winter season and am starting to think about building up my base. I'm thinking that by the end of summer I should be comfortably running 50-60 miles/week, with Sunday long runs of 13-15 miles. Been there, done that. This time around, I'm not even remotely close to those numbers. Each time I think it's feasible but life just gets in the way - particularly the kid situations. Late nights, 2:00 wake-ups, ER visits, etc. etc. etc. They're starting to fade now but not having the mileage base is eating at me, like it's not really a priority any longer. I can bang up to 13-milers in a few months but...

    Part (b) is that I've still got 3 CPA exams looming. I'm 1/3 of the way through the big book (1100 pages) and am planning on sitting exam 2 in October, which leaves four months to bang out the other two exams since my exam window closes in February. Not sure re: extendability but one of my CPA references is getting way up in years and I can't put this off. Mornings these days start with about 15-20 minutes of email/FB, then about an hour of studying, then maybe a 30 minute run, then I start getting ready for work. This morning the studying ran 2 hours, I skipped the run. I was kind of stupid for registering at all in the first place, I should have known better, but I wanted to do it all. This time last year I was in two evening classes as well as the daily workload, with a 1-year-old in the house. It doesn't seem like things are substantially different between last year and this, but here we are.

    She started the flirty stuff, but I obviously didn't mind, so I asked for more stuff, etc.

    I don't know if she's legitimately mad at me - probably just lashing out because she thought she could have this online flirting with me and a real relationship at the same time, and it blew up in her face. Dude is a giant douche though -she's better off without him.

    steroids in the butt :teach:

    but serious, that makes sense. that kind of running requires serious training to do safely. at least you have good things holding you up. good luck with the new addition and the exams.

    Harsh truth times: this girl was stringing you along. Most likely her boyfriend wasn't giving her the amount of attention she demands and you filled in the gaps. I wouldn't count on taking his place.

    I was going mainly for the prostitutes, who have a good reputation. But yeah, if things go well, maybe I'll put a diamond ring on the finger of one of them. Good to keep my options open.

    So, besides this toothache, I botched my morning oatmeal - put in some dried blueberries (which are really extra-sweet chewy blue rocks) and then added some white chocolate chips, and as it turned out the whole thing got obnoxiously sweet, so much that I could not finish it. I went instead with this Carnation Instant Breakfast and it seemed fine at the time but I'm currently reaping a very bitter (and smelly) harvest of intestinal gas. :(
