Friday Morning

It's still dark outside. I have all my running stuff on and I am ready to go, but I like to have at least a teensy bit of light when I am running - particularly on ice.

My sponsee celebrated her birthday last night at her regular meeting. It was nice to see her be grateful for her eleven years. We went out for dinner after the meeting and although it was good, the food was Wretched Excess. I think I could run 24 hours a day for the next 2.5 weeks and not work off the calories that are going to be consumed. It is just crazy that we celebrate everything with massive caloric content. Okay, I will stop bitching about it, just enjoy it, and try not to go overboard either way.

Daave already asked this, but I am asking too... what about the new blogger format? Has anyone switched? What do you think of it? I am nervous about switching.

Have a Happy Friday everyone.

Since I became a non-smoker, WAY TOO MUCH food has become a way of life for me. Something else to work on ...

Yep I have been watching my butt expand lately. Not ready to do anything yet.

anything with Beta runs doubly slow for me--doesn't work nearly at all at home here with dial up

its been difficult to find ways to celebrate without food and drink involved---geez, then I have to do more than small talk with other celebrants and that can be very scarey

have a wonderful weekend

I'm glad you referenced "The Great Fact" it's one of my favorites.
I am only a couple of months old to blogging....don't everyone go changing things on me with the Beta debate!

Keep Coming Back uses it and seems to like it. Knows her way around the computer well--perhaps she can give you some feedback about it.

I have not switched but did try and it would not let me...?? not sure why said something like all my blogs couldnt not be moved... I have only 3 oh well....

and I KNOW why do we celebrate with how did you put.. "over caloric" I get that... MAN O MAN

well hope your run was nice and how was your sunrise? OUrs was so beautiful like a fire behind MT Rainer... wow just breath taking thought, I REALLY need to bring my camera too.. LOL I think I am off on a tegent HA have good one

The new blogger may not let you switch. You many have either too many blogs or your blog itself is too large. It is something they are working out.

I think it is better celebrating with food than alcohol, no wait, I take that back -- espicially since I am trying to get the will to work on my powerlessness over food.

Don't slip out there. Have you ever considered wearing cleets? Makes sense to me, of course it does not snow where I live.

Happy Fried-Eggs! :)

I darent switch to the new blogger format!
I havent blogged since Tuesday got new puters at work so been real busy with them

Sober @ Sundown said...

Haven't switched. Won't till they make me. Why? Too many electronic gadgets in my life that I should learn to use better. For example, I have this really cool phone that takes pics and video..... can't get it to take a pic - it always wants to make a video. I have my friends fix and change the settings for me. TMI?

Forgot to mention that I just bought a Iomega 320 GB desktop hard drive for my photos. It was relatively cheap, and plug and play. Very easy to use - just plug into the usb port, and Windows Explorer recognizes it as a separate drive. All you have to do is drag and drop to copy photos.

DO NOT SWITCH!!!! YOU WILL REGRET IT!

They probably WILL make us, eventually, but I seriously would not do it until then. I created a blog for Boots and was forced to used Beta to create it. It's slower, it loses your photos (I keep having to re-post photos), and it's just a bitch to use.

That's my 2 cents, anyhoo.

I agree about the food issues, too. That and caffeine. Don't they realize we're all freakin' addicts, and all they're doing is fueling our addicitons to other substances??? (Sorry—I had waaaay too much caffeine at tonight's meeting!) :D

I havent switched because I don't like change. It looks like mid January that I will be in town.
