Neat!

The Shake (an online Australian magazine) published one of my articles.

COOL.

It makes me feel like a legit writer, or something.

Anyways, you can go read it here:


Click here to read about animal sex, because I'm classy like that.


Also, in the spirit of "it's my blog and I feel like bragging on myself":

Guess who had a bright red face and cried when she crossed the finish line of her first 10k last Saturday?







I didn't even puke afterwards, although there were a few minutes where it was touch and go. 

I said as much to the bake sale lady while I was sipping water, trying to calm down, and the look on her face reminded me that I really need to find a way to get better at small talk.

Anyways, I went for a nice, slow run today (and by slow I mean that the DragonMonkey leaned his head back at one point and asked if he could get out and walk beside the stroller) and realized that one day I may even be crazy enough to try a half marathon... or at the very least a Ride and Tie event.

Maybe I'll even learn how to cross the finish line without bursting into happy tears.

You went to the zoo in the spring.
On a nice, sunny-ish day.

Really, you did want Joe to have to give that talk already, didn't you? :)

Awesome on both! Why would you want to stop breaking into happy tears?? So few things in life give happy tears, don't wish it away!

Congrats on both counts, and I hope you never learn how not to cry. :)
Small talk, though, that does come in handy.
