Now For Triple Tangent Saturday Night!
1) Guilty Pleasure Movies: As sucky as it is to be in a long distance relationship, there are a couple of perks. One is watching girl movies by yourself. I am spending my Saturday night in watching The Notebook. For the 500th time. It's on Oxygen and it's glorious.
If you don't love this scene, I just don't have anything to say to you....
Indeed, it was not over, Noah.
2) Old Lady Gardens: I did some other old spinster stuff today, like starting a garden. Which made me realize one more glorious thing about Southern California: you can start a freaking garden in August. Hell, I could probably start one in January if the plants were ok with being a little chilly now and then.
I've always been kind of into plants and here's why: My family had a garden growing up. And also, believe it or not, I spent most of my childhood without a TV (I learned the characters on Saved By The Bell as an adult to escape ridicule). Whenever the Burpees Seed catalog came in the mail, while every other kid was watching Full House, I was memorizing all the hybrid strains of tomatoes and their disease resistances. Truth is stranger than fiction.
My new plant assortment includes one tomato, one pepper, and oregano. If only I could grow some mozzarella cheese, I'd be in for a tasty snack. I've got a daddy plant from a few weeks back that I'm sure will take care of the little ones:

3) What the heck is up with this 5k course? Like a good prepared runner, I took a look at the course of the 5k I'm running tomorrow. It's on the OC fair grounds, and frankly the course looks a bit like a carnival itself.
Course in red.
A little different from the normal out and back course...eh?
What's your guilty pleasure movie?
Do you grow stuff?
Will you please think fast thoughts of me tomorrow morning? I really want to do my best like whoa.
