You want one?
Wednesday was a success. I finally got back to running and I did 4 miles instead of my intended 3. With the exception of a slight ache in my upper left thigh, all was well. The weather was gorgeous and half of Nerdtown was out enjoying the beautiful evening in Port Meadow. I can only hope this is a sign of the summer to come as opposed to being another aberration.
Of course I proceeded to follow that up with jack-all yesterday and a gigantic gutterball this morning. Tonight I’m headed to a garden play so that’s another kibosh on running this evening. However, we’re supposed to be having some excellent weather here this weekend, so I’ll get out and about then.
Other than that, things are the same in my world: I continue to peel at an alarming rate (thank you, scorching Scottish sun), my dissertation is still driving me demented and I received a visit from the cops last night concerning my unstable crackhead neighbor. I feel bad for her, but I’m really looking forward to moving soon. Like, a lot.
Come and get it
My search for funny bottle openers in Scotland kinda failed. So, I’m left with phallic Big Ben. (heh)
Fortunately I purchased three of them – one for me and two for a couple of lucky Diggin’ It readers.
So, here’s what you have to do to enter to win:
Leave a comment on this post.
Would I like it if you became a follower too or talked about this on your blogs? Sure, but that’s not going to give you an additional entry into the contest. That would just make more work for me and I feel I’m already doing more than enough by offering to send kitschy English crap across the Atlantic.
So, one entry per person. If you leave more than one comment, you’re still only getting one entry so don’t bother. Entry closes as of 5 pm EST on Sunday, 6 June 2010. Winners will be chosen randomly via Random.org or drawing the names out of a hat. I’ll announce the results on Monday.
On a slightly related note, I saw this little gem on FB and though I'm not a drinker, I thought it might be helpful to you all when you've got a bottle of vino but no corkscrew to hand. All you need apparently is a shoe. The video is in French, but you don't have to understand what he's saying. Just watch.
Okay, greedy bastards, hop to and leave your comment. Have a great weekend.
