If Only I Had Cable

I really wish the I had cable television so that I could watch The Tony Awards RIGHT NOW. I am envious of all the people I am following on twitter as they are all tweeting about how great the Tony’s are right now. Oh well. I will watch it on youtube in the next few days. I just know that Neil Patrick Harris is the greatest host ever. Ok, end rant.

I actually have two days off this week!!! AHH. We only have a 3 day class and so I have Thursday & Friday off. They will be my first real days off since I started school at the beginning of May. I’m so excited. I have decided to take a day trip to Edmonton on Thursday. Being as we are only 3 weeks away from Canada Day, the Canadian clothing/stuff is starting to come out in the stores. I have to do some major shopping as most of my clothes are too big for me. West Edmonton Mall will hopefully be stocked full of Canadian goodness. I am going to leave my house at 5AM to drive the 3 hours to Edmonton. That will get me there for about 8AM and I can have breakfast at IHOP!! OMG! So excited. There are only a few IHOPS in Canada and we only have 1 IHOP in Alberta (in Edmonton). I HAVE TO GO. When my mom and I were in Edmonton in March, we were unable to eat there as it was a Sunday and was super busy. DUH. Of course it would be on a Sunday. We wanted to get out and on the road back to Calgary and so we just had McDonald’s instead :sad: I was devastated. So I am not going to make any excuses on Thursday. Oh and just in case you didn’t know, IHOP is one of my favourite restaurants as I am a pancake monster. :D

I think the route that I have been running around my community is shorter than I thought. I have used the same route for months thinking that it was just over 10KM. I use an app called Map My Fitness on my iPhone to use GPS to track my route. Well it initially gave me the 10KM readings. But for the last 5 runs or so, it now gives me an 8½KM route. I haven’t changed where I run AT ALL. So I am thinking that it read the satellites wrong with the 10KM or it’s reading them wrong now with the 8½KM. I just don’t know. It gives me even more reason to bite the bullet and go and buy the GPS Watch that I want. Except…don’t the two devices use the same satellites?! Ugh. I am not expert on GPS or tracking, how am I supposed to know!? Plus, my birthday is less than a month away and I shouldn’t buy an expensive gift like that before my birthday. Maybe I should just stop running all together as I am as sore as a dog right now. Ugh. I did an Iron Reps class on Wednesday and I have been sore ever since. They say it’s a good thing to be sore after weights, but all I want to do is run and the soreness just gets aggravated after. LOL. Really, it won’t stop me. If the sun is shining, I will be running :pirate:

Oh and DanicasDaily is giving away a whole case of Reese’s Peanut Butter cups as part of the Green Lantern Premiere!!!

    I, too, am a huge pancake monster and we have NO IHOP in the Netherlands. Oy. But I’ll be in America for two months this summer and one of the things I’m extremely excited about is IHOP, haha! I made my boyfriend promise we’d have our first breakfast there XD Yay!!

    I could never get into award shows, but I do get your desire for wanting cable. I watch all my television online but sometimes there’s something or another that I want to watch ASAP but I have to wait. Boo. D:

    IHOP’s not that great. I feel like I could make better pancakes at home.
    I didn’t even know the Tony’s were this past weekend, but I find most award shows pretty boring. I heard NPH did an excellent job though.

    Enjoy your days off! I hope you find lots of new Canada stuff :upsidedown: I’ve never heard of IHOP before, but then again we miss out on a lot of great stuff over here ;-)
