I should be asleep...

‎"Your goals, minus your doubts, equal your reality."
~Ralph Marston

I don't know if this counts as an "actual blog post," which my last post indicated was on its way. I think I have been less apt to post for a number of reasons, but one main one is that I don't have WiFi, which means that I have to come into my office where my laptop sits plugged into the ethernet plug. No more sitting in my bed on my way to sleep quickly getting some thoughts and pictures up on this blog... Well, that is until I get a wireless router. I know, I know: they're not that expensive, right? That's what you were thinking, right? Well, I just haven't done it and I guess that means that it's not a priority for me.

At any rate. Just a few thoughts tonight, as I should be doing laundry and cleaning...

... I love musicals. And I especially love Show Tune Saturday Night on 106.5 FM here in Salt Lake. Keeps me entertained on Saturday nights when I can tune in. And most importantly, helps me not feel lonely when I'm at home alone.

... I'm no longer addicted to Sea Battle Live. But I sure have been playing a lot of Sudoku and Words with Friends.

... I'm still obsessed with HRH Kate. Yes, and I even have a new favorite website: Check it out. She and Will just finished their two week-Southeast Asian tour and man, she looked beautiful. Some of the most beautiful dresses I've ever seen showed up on that tour. Can I be Kate, please?

... I have an ongoing love affair with clouds, which I don't see ending any time soon. Or any time ever. I'm mesmerized. In love. Infatuated. In love. Enchanted. Forever. With each and every encounter.

... Couch to 5k. I started again. Tomorrow will complete the first week. It's easier this time around. Not sure why, since aside from this week, I think I've only run like ten times this year, probably. Ugh. It's hard but good. I know I must suffer the pain of discipline or suffer the pain of regret. My choice.

...Today, I was on the treadmill watching the history channel while I ran. Did you know there is a stretch of road call Death Road in Bolivia. El Camino de la Muerte snakes its way through the Andes Mountains. Watch this:

Seriously one of the most treacherous roads in the world in GOOD weather conditions. Just imagine when the fog and rains come in. Wow. Crazy. It was built in the 1930s and has claimed thousands of lives since. Wanna drive it? Yeah, me neither.

Picture found here.

... Speaking of driving. Confession: I roll through stop signs. Call me a California driver. My Aunt does. She calls them California stops. She should know. She's a native, as well. :)

... I have to find my own husband because my culture doesn't practice arranged marriages. Doing my best. I just wish falling in love had traffic lights so that I would know if I should: Go for it, slow down, or just stop.

... I'm really tired and should be in bed.
