So apparently the Twilight mayhem is upon us. I’m not a Team Vamp or Werwolf, and I’ve never seen/read of the movies/books but I don’t live in a cave. A cardboard box when time get really lean but never a cave.
But, as I’ve lived in Oregon, I do know that apparently these Twilight fans are about as loyal and feisty as Ducks vs. Beaver fans. There will be masses camped out in line, the token people who dress up, and it got me thinking, what would I camp out for, or get up an unholy hour for?
*I’ve gotten up ridiculously early to get in a run before hopping flights before. The one big plus about running at 4am on the roads is you don’t have to wait for any stoplights.
*I’m not one of those people who would peel myself out of the sack just to watch a beautiful sunrise…BUT if perchance that doof who keeps predicting the end of the world seemed to be right, I might rise and shine early to watch Apocalypse go down.
*I’m a sucker for freebie stuff, so if by some miracle beyond miracles there was some place giving out free running shoes, clothing, or Garmins I’d pull out my tent.
*Oh, again with flights and time zone changes, I did make sure and get up early enough to run before boarding a plane because with the time changes if I didn’t run then, then officially I would have missed a run for the day.
*If my house was actually on fire..I’ve lived in apartments before and I knew it was a test so, I rolled over. But if I KNEW I was about to fry then I’d grab my cat, treadmill, and be out the door. (fun fact: the fire alarm went off once when I was on the elliptical…I finished those last few minutes before evacuating…teehee.)
Ya, I’m REALLY stingy about my sleeping. I will say it’s because I know how important those zzzz’s are for recovery (which, trust me they are and all of you snore skimpers should try to be better about that) but we all know it’s because I’m a closet lazy person.
Two quick things: 1) THANK YOU to those who ‘liked’ me on my Facebook page, I hate to make the plug, but getting some extra ‘likes’ really does make my day because apparently my self-esteem is fragile like that.
2) I keep finding out that people are not able to leave me comments or that they are getting automatically put in my SPAM folder. I’m trying to figure out what the jank is, but if you are having any trouble leaving comments please send me an email and let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org I really love comments and hearing from you, so I’m sorry!
1) Are you a Twilight fan, are you going to be one of ‘those’ people who make sure to see it as soon as it comes out?
2) What would you camp out for our get up crazy early for?
3) Any funny running/workout related stories you have that tie into this?
Hmmmm, the only other thing is during a 4am run I got a ‘toot-toot’ from a semi-trucker who was literally the only other soul on the road.
