POM Ponders

Things that make me go hmmmmm:
  • Why are my weekend long runs at a faster pace than my morning short runs?
  • How can a liberal state such as Cali be so close-minded regarding certain rights?
  • Why do men like to watch sports, barely rarely play sports?
  • Why is golf considered a sport?
  • Why does the morning fly by but the afternoon lingers on forever?
  • When is Eminem's new CD going to come out?
  • Why have I run out of blog ideas?
  • Why are the holidays more stressful than fun? (another post on this later)
  • How can $hit hit the fan and roll down hill at the same time?

What's on your mind today?

my post was bullet points today too :)

i was just commenting to my friend about how CA is a "liberal state" but then votes to pass 8? just seems odd to me.

My evening runs are WAY faster than my morning runs. I just can't get my wheels going in the morning for some reason.
And I'm SOO completely frustrated with the PROP 8 bullshit. I thought FO SHO it was goin down!?!

audgepodge said...

I'm still in shock about Prop 8... so disappointed in my fellow Californians...

Jess said...

I was shocked by CA's vote on prop 8, but if it makes you feel any better, Floridians turned out to be equally closed-minded since we passed a similiar ammendment. I was honestly shocked to see that, especially since we went blue this year!

Marcy said...

I was absolutely shocked about 8. I thought fo really reals yo, you guys would come through. That's some shit.

Emily said...

What does shi* rolling downhill mean? Based on what you wrote I have to think its the opposite of hitting the fan, but I just can't imagine the act of it rolling downhill to be anything but unsightly and pungent. Do elaborate!

Running is soo weird sometimes, I don't get my pacing variations either. I'm all over the board.

Ya, where is Marshall Mathers darn it. Mama needs more iPod fodder!

Julianne said...

Sounds like you got more to write about than you think! As for the first bullet point, maybe you're a better at longer distances than shorter? That is truly sad about Prop 8. I was so shocked to hear the results...

N.D. said...

THe long runs thing happens to me too. I don't get it! Then I can't hold that faster pace for a full marathon. 16 mile race might be good for me, but more like a 1/2.

On my mind today is how many people at work do I want to stab rather than talk to / work with ? There's definitely more people that I really just can't stand!

Sarah said...

Because wikipedia knows all: "Relapse is the sixth studio album by American rapper Eminem. It is scheduled for release as early as December 8, 2008 by Interscope Records." Hope that helps :)

Denise said...

So sad about Prop 8...people are so close minded.

ThickChick said...

I saw the vote breakdown by county, and would you believe that LA County voted YES?!?! How odd!
It seems that the gays all live along the coast, and therefore, the coastal counties should have shot it down. Anyway, I can't possibly begin to understand what is so damn frightening about gay marriage.

Anyhoo.....
I hear you on the holiday front. I'm hosting T-Giving for the first time and already stressing out in a major way.

Michelle J said...

p.o.m i wanna run with you!!!

I'm just saying!

Alisa said...

I don't understand Prop 8 either. In fact, I'm shocked. I always thought my beloved Cali was ahead of the times...LAME!

Holidays are always stressful for me...divorced parents and being married makes for lots of driving.

sunshine said...

Here's one for you... why do people register for gifts that are so freaking expensive? Do you really need an $80 salt and pepper shaker? *sigh* I guess it's their day and they should be free to pick out all the great stuff :)

Victoria said...

Yeah. Who cares if people (whoever they are) get married? It's really nobody's business except for the people getting married. Sheesh.

Heather said...

I shuddered at the mere mention of holidays. Gawd. The thought of shipping gifts and lugging the newborn to the East Coast makes me head straight to the sauvignon blanc.

X-Country2 said...

Ug, Prop 8. I don't know either. Good question about Eminem too...

Laurel said...

I was surprised art how Cali voted on that one too. It happened the same way in FL, but I totally expected it there.

teacherwoman said...

I might do the bullets tomorrow. My mind is so frazzled! :)

Xenia said...

I echo many of your queries. Sorry, I have no answers.

Additional question--why does male PMS only consist of bitchiness? To be fair it should also include bloating, cramping, painful private parts and a desire to eat everything in one's pantry.

Viv said...

My position is that the heated debatable...oh please you did not think I was going to say something super smart did you?

I am still shocked that they overturned it!

December 1, 2008 that is your Eminem drop date.

On my mind, I don;t want to go to the dentist and sit around most of the morning.

Jess said...

Yea why do the mornings fly by and the afternoons drag...I hate that!

Carolina John said...

that's a great list. very true!

Brooke said...

Haha..I think I'm the only one in the world who LOVES the commotion and crowds of the holidays...Christmas music and all the STRESS. Seriously. I love the holidays and the fact that we are expected to start decorating earlier and earlier each year. Makes it last longer! But I know- that's just me...

HA! Stupid golf.
