I am so glad I am female.

My question exactly! How do you have time to train for the marathon? I have a lot of respect for runners because of the discipline it takes and because I could never ever run a marathon.
Compared to some picky eaters I know, your list is not bad at all. books- I would recommend either of the books by Shannon Olson. I just started "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" because I have never read it before. movies- I would recommend "About a Boy," any of the B&W Hitchcock movies, and "Kung Fu Hustle" was decent.

I have not had to have stitches... yet. I tend to just get bruises, thank goodness. My toes are still all curled up from cringing at your story though. Ow.

I am laughing because you were afraid of hummingbirds - one of the smallest birds! - but I know I would have been freaking out just as much, if not more. I am so jealous of your trip. It sounds like it was amazing.

I can't imagine... your story is so vivid, and yet I still can't really imagine what it must have been like.

I am blinded by the cuteness of the baby and dog! I tried to watch ...Dance last night, but when I turned it on, someone was singing an annoying song. I went back later and saw Benji perform a 15 second dance. WTF? Maybe I should have started watching before the final show.

Every blog I go to today, I am commenting right after GG. WTF? I am an accidental blog stalker. But anyway, I loved Allison until she cried when Keith got kicked off. Excuse me, but he deserved to be kicked off. And he was a jerk. Why are you crying???? But she is both hot and cute at the same time- and a good designer. I think Michael is both hilarious and dreamy. And I will stop with the multi-page comment on Project Runway now.

I am definitely a streamlined packer. Watching my husband pack drives me crazy. He always ends up taking more bags (and shoes!) than me. Once I forgot underwear though. And the only two stores within 30 minutes were ShopKo and Wal-Mart. I now own ShopKo underwear.

I am another one who knows little of the bus culture. Although now that I think about it, I remember seeing the high school buses and being surprised at how empty they were. I think they were avoided at all costs. But maybe they would have been more popular if nice ladies like Mrs. Dukes were the drivers.

Good story! Surprisingly, tornadoes or the threat of tornadoes don't bother me. One time in high school the annual tornado drill took place during my gym class. Our designated "shelter" area was the boys' locker room. I was not scared, but I was most definitely not happy. I can still remember the smell.

I would expect a man to offer his seat to an older person, someone carrying something heavy, a pregnant woman, or a woman with kids. I wouldn't expect him to offer his seat to a woman his own age, heels or not. But I can't believe that guy jumped in front of you for a seat! Rude! Where I work, most of the men are very big on letting women get on and off the elevator first. Now I expect it and am annoyed when a guy I work with gets off the elevator before me. I am not sure why though.

7 Miller Lites are better than 7 MGDs. A bunch of potato chips is better than a bag. (which is what I ate the other day - oops) And I agree that 3 Oreos = model of restraint. But who the heck fries green beans? That is just weird.
One of the reasons I was so sad after my trip to Texas where my best friend from college got married, was that I was thinking about how I would never have those college experiences or those "firsts" that you describe again. I have two friends that are like your Alison to me, and seeing them is so amazing, but it makes me miss them that much more. Why can't everyone just move to Minnesota? PS Glad you had such a great trip!

In one way, it is nice that you keep guessing his surprises because it means he is doing a good job of picking out gifts and trips! My husband is good at suprising me, except that once he buys me a present, he has to give it to me right away. I would prefer the anticipation of actually waiting until my birthday or Christmas, but my husband would explode if he had to wait to give me my present. It's very cute. I hope you get the tickets!

I love it! But the whole time I was reading this, I was wondering what slate pencils are. Excuse me while I go Google.

The lady with the mirror is pretty cool. Not as cool as the scary guy with the jar of sandwiches, but still pretty cool. (Just had to make sure sandwich jar guy was on your blog somewhere!) As far as running, I would be one of those people who sound like they are dying. Which is why I don't run. And I agree that hairy guys should not go shirt-less. But I also don't like when women run only in a sports bra. I know it is really hot, but sometimes (really most of the time) I just do not need to see that.

I was on the light rail in Minneapolis behind a (homeless) guy holding the biggest jar I had ever seen. For some reason, I was worried that the jar contained severed fingers. He opened the jar and took something out of it, and I started freaking out. But then I saw what he had taken out of the jar: a sandwich. I am not sure how this relates to your story except that it is about freaking out on public transportation. I will stop rambling now.
