The only game I tolerate is Apples to Apples, primarily because the only skill involved is out-ridiculous-ing everyone else. That I can usually do pretty well.
Despite my natural talent for losing, we had a great time hanging out and berating each other - you know, bonding.

|Okay, so I got Roger from a breeder as a pup, but I always think of Benny, my rescue puggy, when I see this.|
Today - woke up at 4:15 and hit the pavement to end the year on a long, high, sweaty note: 20 miles.
Most of the Houston marathoners are already tapering, but I really felt the need to get in at least one long run before Jan. 15, and today was finally that day. Ninja ran with me for about 11 miles, and that was truly the only thing that kept me going. I have learned I am NOT a solo runner...it's just too boring and all I can think about is either how much pain I'm in or how bored I am.
So with that behind me, all that remains until 2012 are the parties and the champagne...after I take my nap, of course.
Happy New Year! Be safe and enjoy!
