Yea!!! The first game of the Finals is tonight. I try to catch Mavs games when I get the chance, but I will definitely be tuning in for this series. I wish that professional basketball was easier to follow. With football, you know exactly what day of the week your team is going play. It is going to Sunday, with the occassional Monday night game thrown in there with a Sunday off twice a season, and maybe a Thursday if your playing on Thanksgiving or opening the seaon. Basketball is all of the place. It's hard as hell to plan your life around that schedule. Props to those who can do it. So, I catch a game when I can, and miss those that I can't. However, the Finals are HUGE!!! This town has gone crazy with Mavs fever, and IT IS AWESOME!!! So, tonight I will parked in front of my television cheering on Dirk and the boys thankful that I don't have to watch Nash anymore. Nash, what a gross little guy. I wish he would wash that greasy mop on the top of his head. So, GO MAVS!!!

One week from today I will be getting on a plane to fly to Anchorage. I can't wait!!! This will be my first time outside of the lower 48. It will also be my longest flight. I'm a little nervous, but I plan on going fully armed. I'm going to rip an audiobook onto my iPod, take the book I'm currently reading, my mom is letting me borrow her portable DVD player, and then of course, there's always Dramamine (sp?). My mom is also letting me borrow her digital camera, so I can get lots of pictures. I'm not sure what sightseeing I will be looking yet, but I know that the marathon course is very scenic. I am also looking forward to a mini-vacation. It will be so nice to get away from my life for a little while. I've been so stressed out about things lately, and it will be nice to be somewhere that I can't do a damn thing about any thing. What a relief!!! So, I just need to endure the next week, and hope that the four days I'm in Alaska are long. Well, actually they will be with the whole daylight thing that have going up there!!! It's a win/win.

I'm hoping to come back with a lot to write about. I'll have plenty of time to write on the almost seven hour plane flight.

I saw "The Break-Up" last night. Vincent D'Onofrio was cutey patootie in it. It was actually a feat of eye candy with Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Cole Hauser, Peter Billingsley, and many others. There was a little bit for everybody. Not to mention that there were a few scenes where I was laughing so hard my jaw hurt. I highly recommend it if you want a good laugh.

I got back from Alaska this morning, and I have spent the rest of the day sleeping. My clock is really messed up. It is so easy to lose track of time in Alaska since it never really gets dark. The marathon was much more difficult than I had anticipated. Most of the race was "off-road." There's nothing like dodging mosquitoes the size of 747s and trying not to trip on "gravel" the size of baseballs. But I DID IT!!! The scenery was absolutely gorgeous. I even got up close to wildlife. I saw two moose on the trail. One was really close to me as well. I got some great pics. I will get them up as soon as I figure out how to do it. The best time I had all weekend was when I went on a cruise around Prince William Sound. I saw a whale, a bunch of sea otters, bald eagles, and salmon. The glaciers were the best part. Their majesty was simply amazing. Our boat captain turned off the engine of the boat so we could sit and listen to one of the glaciers crackle. It was also interesting learning about the history of the Sound and the town around it. All in all, I look forward to going back to Anchorage. I may only do a half marathon, instead of the full, but I'm definitely going back.

I'm jealous Rebecca (not about the marathon - but way to go girl!) about you going to Alaska. I've been trying to schedule a cruise to Alaska this year but with all the eye stuff I haven't been able to nail anything down.
Is this my reality or yours?

Yeah, I remember the "mosquitos" when I lived there. They last about a two months, then it's "gnat" season, which is in a sense worse because they swarm and you can't help but breathe them in...

I'm in awe of you doing a marathon in Alaska... and envious of you getting to go. Glad you made it back safe and sound.

A marathon? tough enough.

It was definitely worth it. I do marathons with Team In Training, so we raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and get to go around the country for endurance events. Every time I thought about quitting, I would think about all of the people who don't have the choice of quitting, I would start crying, and keep going. It was a very emotional experience, but I am so glad that I did it.

I have some friends who did a 100 mile bike ride with Team in Training... sitting on my butt exercising sounds better than running :D

I think that I am going to do a 100 mile bike ride next year. My concern is that it puts a lot of pressure on your back. The ride that I want to do is from Austin to Shiner, Texas. I think I could get motivated to ride 100 miles if there is really great beer at the finish line.

Ugh, work has been so crazy this week. I stayed until after 10 o'clock last night, and I've worked through my lunch everyday this week. I'm exhausted, hungry, and just pissed off. I really hope that I get this weekend off. It's not looking good though. I haven't worked out since I got home from Alaska, and that's starting to take a toll on me as well. Ok, 'nuff of my bitchin'. Just needed to vent.

Ha...ha...I had a very scary "mini-dream" this morning in between snooze hits. I dreamed that all of the overtime I have worked this week got put in the "magic payroll computer" as credit hours instead of debit hours, so my paycheck ended up being $.38. :shock: Boy was I glad when I woke up and realized it was just a dream.

This past week at work really did me in. There's nothing more exhausting than 50 hours of numbers, spreadsheets, journal entries, and reports. I had grand plans of rearranging my apartment and getting everything orderly. Well, my dining room looks quite nice. I had a dresser that I really wasn't using, so I decided it would work better as a buffett. However, my bedroom is torn apart from the getting the darn thing out of the bedroom. I have half completed chores all of over the place. I just don't have the energy to finish them. Maybe tomorrow... I have guaranteed a good night''s sleep. Two glasses of Yellow Tail Chardonnay should do the trick. Luckily, I have four days to do my weekend chores. At this rate, I might have them done by then.

I came home from work on Thursday, and there was a pair of tightie whities sitting in the middle of the sidewalk. My first thought was "Boy, I hope they're clean." Then I carefully sidestepped them. Today I came in from the grocery store and there was another pair of men's briefs laying in the exact same spot on the sidewalk. This pair were a tasteful burgundy color. Again, I secretly hoped that they were clean. Seriously though, where is the underwear coming from? Is the tree dropping underwear instead of leaves? I really, really hope they are clean, but I'm kind of thinking that they're not. I guess if I see some man running around without any underwear, I know where to tell him to find them.
