TV Meme: Day 19: Best TV Show Cast

This is a hard one, because frankly, I like the casts of all my shows. BSG has an awesome cast. West Wing has an awesome cast. Buffy has an awesome cast. Firefly had an awesome cast. LOST has an awesome cast. I really can't choose on this one.

Day 20: Favorite Kiss

Oh, I don't know! To be honest, I'm not crazy about watching people kiss. I'll give you three, because they actually say something about me, I suppose. Under the cut )

The 30 days again )

Running is going... okay. I've got what I am positive is a Morton's neuroma, and I want to have it actually looked at and work out ways that I can run without it getting worse. I've gotten some great advice from a doctor friend and it's really confirmed exactly what the problem is, but I'm thinking it's time for some face-to-face (or face-to-foot, as the case may be) time so I can make sure this sucker doesn't get any worse. I did get new shoes yesterday- I went in for padding and the guy selling me shoes pointed out how tight they were. I did feel a difference in my other foot running last night, but I can still feel the neuroma in my right foot. I know padding is the next step- an orthodic or insole or something.

I also finished the prologue at least for my big bang. Whoohoo! I have a start! I still need to get moving on a ton of fics, but now that Fireflies is out of the way, I can maybe write something a little easier. But I'm really excited about my big bang. I came up with a twist the other day that is pure evil. >:) And interestingly, Kara barged in with guns blazing, declaring that she gets a major role in this story. Which is funny, because I so rarely write her. But she's right, and besides, I'm not stupid enough to argue with an armed Kara Thrace.

My interesting problem with the story is I need to find people who actually support what Roslin is doing. cut for details of BSG/Dollhouse )

Hee. It's the Sesame Street episode where Paul Rudd gets frustrated that the princesses keep rescuing themselves again. I'm getting sick of this one (I think Toby is, too), but I love the message for girls in this one.

Okay. I should write something while Sesame Street finishes. Hmmm....

Eek. I did it. :) I signed up for the Philadelphia Marathon. It's in November.

The one thing I really, really hate about these sign-ups is that they're non-refundable. I'm just scared I'll get hurt sometime in the next six months and then be out a hundred bucks. But I really hope not. This is- I think- going to be the only marathon I ever do, and I'm excited for it.

I don't think I'll ever do another. The amount of time you have to dedicate to training - even the kind of training I'm doing, which is "get from the start line to the finish line" - is pretty big, and with two small kids.... Yeah. And true, as they get older, they won't need so much supervision, but they'll need rides to baseball practice or karate tournaments or home from marching band practice or whatever. I'm sure it's doable, but... But hell. I'm also convinced that, while you can train to do it, the human body wasn't meant to be running 26 miles at a shot. I mean, didn't the first guy who did it DIE? So after this, I'm scaling back to 10Ks or 1/2 marathons. (Although, I confess- I would LOVE to do an Iron Man relay.)

What utterly amazes me, though, are people who do even LONGER runs. Like 100 mile runs. (Although you know what's really sick? I hear about these things and there's a little part of me that says, "hey, I wonder..." I hear that challenge and it's almost like I HAVE to do it.) Or even longer, a 3100 mile race. (Yes, you read that right, and yes, I had one of those "hey, I wonder..." moments there, too, but my brain kicked in REALLY fast on that one.) Or a marathon in Antarctica. Which, what is wrong with me that I'm even clicking on the website?????

Okay. Back to reality. The Philly marathon is reputed to be one of the fastest to run, because the course is very flat. The half last year was a blast, and this should be, too. Of course, after all this lofty talk, tomorrow's run is 5-6 miles. Heh.

Back to writing....
