Every treadmill run lately, I've been watching Supernatural and for a wimp like me, that's some scary shit. It's not like I'm afraid to sleep without a nightlight now (that's a lie) but when I'm running in the dark, it's like I can't control my brain and all I think about it is what I just saw on the show.
On Saturday morning, I started my run about 45 minutes before sunrise, so I had my head lamp and I thought I would just stick to my usual short route from the neighborhood until it got light. Running in my neighborhood was fine because everyone has flood lights on their house and it's relatively well lit. Once I ran down the big hill out of my neighborhood, it was pitch dark and foggy. I made it about half a mile down the dark road before my head lamp hit the floating fog in a way that made it look like something big ran across the road ahead of me. I was pretty sure it was hunting me and if I kept going, it would surely make its move.
I turned around and quickly scampered back to my fog-free and well lit neighborhood and decided that running circles actually didn't sound that bad. As I was turning the corner onto my street, I heard a low growl right next to me and when I turned my head lamp, all I saw were glowing green eyes of something huge and just about to pounce.
Yeah, it was just my neighbor's Saint Bernard out in their yard, but holy shit I think I lost a year off my life right then. I'm ready for the daylight savings time change and an earlier sun rise. It's also probably a good idea for me to find a less scary show to watch since I can't control my imagination.
It's a good thing I survived that run because I've found something amazing: Papa John's now delivers freshly baked cookies with your pizza! It's like they know me.
|It was still warm and gooey when it arrived|
It's nothing special (probably just premade Tollhouse dough) but it only cost $5 to add to my order and I didn't have to get anything dirty to have fresh baked cookies. Worth it!
Unrelated, but it cracked me up so I'm including it, check out this form for females about to get a tattoo:
|Of course you do|
Tattoo trends are funny. If you don't believe me, let these two pictures convert you:
|Oh, that's how birds are made|
|Needs an anchor|
I think this one is my favorite.
Never sinks...like an anchor? This must be why all those docked boats always float away....
I can mock because my tattoos are special and unique, just like me.*
*Are tramp stamps special?
If you were going to get a new (or first) tattoo, what would you get? I already have three but if I got another, I think I'd finally get a color one since my others are black and white. Maybe a big tat of Peanut's face on my back. That sounds classy.
Do scary shows or movies make you scared later? When I was a kid, I saw an episode of the X Files about a monster who lived in a latrine and bit people when they sat down to go and since then, I'm freaked out to use one. I'd rather go behind a tree than use a latrine! I know, I have issues.
