First Run

I went running last night for the first time this year. Yes, I suck again, but not as bad as I did when I very first tried it. I love running in this area... isn't it beautiful? So great. It's amazing to get outside in the fresh air and look at those mountains for the whole run.

My favorite trail: Kays Creek

Satan's Rainbow

If you follow me on Facebook at all, you may have seen my little post about how I'd been stressing out about paint colors for the house and how I'd finally chosen a color. Turns out that color wasn't what I wanted. So we chose a couple more colors to try out. No dice. Then we changed things up and decided to go the orange route. That didn't work either. So we went back to beiges. I picked three new beiges and sorta liked one. So we were gonna go with that. At this point we had purchased 10 different samples and I didn't like any of them. I don't know how this is possible. But it was.

The Carnage

The other night we were walking around in RCWilleys (after purchasing a new fridge... yeah!).They have a lot of small walls throughout the store, all painted a different color. These colors were also labeled with a paint brand and name. So we decided to scout out the store for paint colors. Can I tell you how awesome this was? I can see lots of colors! And they're named! And a WHOLE WALL is painted, not just a 1" square on a card. Who would have known the furniture store would be the perfect place to shop for paint colors?

Well it turns out I saw an orange and a beige I liked. So I ditched the color I'd previously settled on. I pretty much had to do this because the beige color I liked ended up having the best name ever: Smoked Trout. And the orange was just what I was looking for. Seth is picking up samples of these two colors today. If these colors don't look good in our house I quit. Stay tuned.

I'm not sure what it is about my food blog that attracts the spam comments. But I get them pretty regularly. At first I was sort of angered by them, but then I found them quite entertaining. And then I thought maybe you'd all be entertained by them also. So I've been saving all the spam comments for the last couple months. It's quite a nice collection if I don't say so myself.

Keep in mind these are all in response to recipes, not political issues or brilliant ideas.

p.s. I didn't keep the spam comments laden with gobs of porn site links. I figured you could find those on your own if need be.

"Good I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related information ended up being truly easy to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, website theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Nice task.."

"thnx bro"

"i love it" (from "Facebook"... I should be honored such a large entity loves my stuff...)

"your good"

"as if!"

"Thanks, its usefully for me."

"It’s interesting to see this point of view. I can’t say fore sure if I agree or not, but it is something I will think about now."

"it seems quite trivial to expect"

"Very informative blog here. I couldn’t have made a better one if my life depended on it." (I was very flattered that "Penis Enlargement Pills" would leave such a nice comment...)

"Once you are done trying to ‘optimize’ this routine."
