Reasons For Bailing Out of the 5K Walk Last Night: 1) bruised knee, 2) allergies from hell, 3) pouring rain. Okay, it probably wouldn't have stopped dbrus but I freely admit I'm a wimp.
Happy Birthday Wishes to same_sky and montfort!

- Eating all 10 of the fun-size 3 Musketeers bars my boss gave me this morning
- Keep thinking: The sun is out! It's out, it's OUT!
