Can You Tie Your Shoes?

So for such a small creature, my cat can be extremely annoying.  She’s super clingy and needy, and loves to rub her furry self all over my black dress pants while I’m making my lunch in the morning.  Also, if she feels like you aren’t paying enough attention to her she will sit and meow at you until you do.  I don’t really know what was wrong with her the other night, but she wouldn’t shut up or leave me alone so I decided to bribe her with a can of soft food.  Pumpkin normally only gets the hard stuff.  Well, have you ever seen a cat who is not used to getting soft food eat it?  I swear it was like crack for her.  She did not make a sound for a good 10 minutes while she ate, and then she proceeded to lounge on the floor sleeping for the rest of the night.  I’m pretty sure she ate herself into a coma.  She looked something like this:

Even yesterday when I came home from work, she didn’t get off the couch and follow me around like she normally does.  She merely lifted her head up, looked at me, and put it down to go back to sleep.  Although, I think I’ve created a monster because now she won’t eat the hard food and just keeps meowing at me.  Little shit.

Anyway, last night I did my 4 mile easy run at a 10 minute pace, followed by some abs and push-ups.  I’m happy to see the push-ups seem to be getting easier, might be time to up the number in each set.  Still had some stomach issues, I’m blaming the coffee I’ve been drinking in the mornings but hopefully I have no problems tomorrow for my long run.

Ok, so I know you all think you learned how to tie your shoes in kindergarten but did you know you’ve probably been doing it wrong?  I came across this video on Runners World yesterday and found it pretty interesting.  Go ahead, check it out, are you tying your shoes the right way?  I’m not, and I still can’t figure out the correct way, haha.  Every way I tried, my laces still pointed the wrong way.  I see this occupying me until I get it right.

We have our company picnic today at noon, so I pretty much only have a half day which is fantastic.  Then I’m hitting the road to VA, this drive always inspires my worst bouts of road rage because of traffic.  Dani and Adrienne, wine when I get there?  What is everyone else up to this weekend?

  1. My cat does the same thing – every time one of us goes in the kitchen she thinks she’s getting fed. We can’t feed her wet food because it gives her , um, catastrophic diarrhea. hee hee.

  2. you’re welcome for that mental image btw.

  3. Oh I’m jealous! A company picnic sounds kind of fun… we were going to do one last year. And even started planning it. Then it just got put on hold and sort of disappeared. Along with the golf outtings… and over the top Christmas parties…. and happy hours… damn.

  4. I just got my sneakers out of my bag while watching that video to try it too. Apparently I can only tie granny knots. Who knew at 25 I could be tying my shoelaces wrong? Maybe it’s time to go back to velcro. 🙂

  5. A company picnic sounds fun! It definitely beats sitting at a desk all day. Have fun this weekend! 🙂

  6. Aww! I love your cat. I think its so cute when they won’t leave you alone. I’m pretty sure my dog thinks she’s a cat. She does the leg rubbing thing and everything.

  7. What a funny cat. I actually really like cats – I wish I wasn’t allergic!

  8. I miss my cats. They live with my Mom now. They are little shits though.

    Have fun in VA!

  9. Haha I do the same thing with my cats! They get soft food like once a month and they only have to SEE the can and they go INSANE. And then inhale it. And the proceed to pass out.
