firsts....


this has been an interesting week of firsts.

*first time i've had a stomach cootie. aka something i ate over a week ago made me sick for a whole week with a lovely food borne illness. which really prevented eating (and i'm a little tired of folks thinking i'm too thin to begin with...it's just how i'm built. and have never really been big in my mind...maybe folks thought i was? anyway...it's not like i have a complex or anything ;) ...no gruesome details on the cootie, but thankfully the dr. and labs found something treatable to fix and i'm on the mend with drugs...wouldn't usually share such things but many of you knew i'd been sick so here's to getting better. to the friend i had to cancel on last minute a few days ago, i'm really sorry...let's reschedule, dude ~

*first time i've been asked to job swap with a local news anchor for a major network. haven't set the details yet with her, but it appears she will come to my library and job share with me for a day in august, and a week later i will go to the station reaaaaaaallly early and do a small interview with her. exciting, humbling and scary all at the same time. i'll post more on this as details become available...

*first time tomorrow that a) i will attend a major triathalon with real olympic athletes competing in beijing next month and b) be working a water stop at a major race. thousands are expected to take part. me & my runner girls will be pumping up the jams and havin a blast from 6am til about noon. post triathalon time will be pretty low key before waiting tables with my rockin' art friend sara around 5. stop by ursula's if you're ever up in the white bear lake area.

*in a few weeks i'll be helping a colleague and friend teach a class about bloggin'.. i told a few of my running gals about it tonight during our steamy 7 miler....in that if they (or anyone local) wants to learn to blog we're offering 2 more classes in the fall. and i'll be trying to head up teaching a class on facebook as well. should be good times and learning experiences all around...

*and to finish my weekend, i'll take my first trip out to a friend's house that i've never been to as my 2nd job usually gets in the way of social gatherings that friends host. like the bonfire she had, oh, eons ago. cheers to cooler weather ahead in the coming days and to it just being summer in the land of 10,000+ lakes...~jd

I have to laugh at the picture you used. My first fulltime job was at Schapper Toys making those cooties.
Hope you feel better!!
