Happy birthday to my kitty Apollo today.

He turns seven years old! (He was born on 6/6/06… kind of creepy.) Already he has lived quite the life for a cat. He has lived in Minnesota, Florida and now New York and traveled across the country twice. His favorite thing in the world is to play with plastic DVD wrappers that we wrap up with tape (weird). Apollo keeps us in line by making sure we are sticking to our routines (otherwise we get a lot of evil looks and meows).

I do not know what my deal is but I feel like I’ve regressed two years and am back to not being able to wake up in the morning. I think it’s a combination of having an awesome weekend (aka not a lot of sleep!) and also getting over this summer cold (finally admitting it’s more than allergies). I made a deal with myself that if I got up this morning and went for a run, tomorrow would be a rest day.

My run this morning was a little wah-wah, nothing spectacular and just kind of there. It was a little humid this morning, but the park was SUPER busy! I love seeing it so busy! It means really good people watching… and lots of cute dogs to look at.

Summer also means that the BUBBLERS in the park are working… oh wait, if you are not from WI you have no idea what I am talking about:


I love looking at things like these (21 others are in an article here) because it is interesting how words are so different in parts of the country. C is totally a southern boy in the way that he says “bowie knife” and “lawyer.” You know those southerners, they like to make words way more complicated than they need to be. 😉


Do you celebrate your pet’s birthday? 

How do you motivate yourself to get out of bed in the morning? (I need help!)

Bubbler vs. water fountain? What are some word oddities that you find funny?
