awpoops: Sunday I’m running the Pittsburgh Marathon. It’ll be my second marathon, and with a little luck, good weather, and plenty of sleep, I think I have a teeny, tiny chance of making the Boston cutoff. I’m pretty confident in the training I’ve done, and have less aches and pains than I did this time before my first Marathon. Most likely, I’ll beat my 3:24 time from last Fall’s NYC Marathon. ...

She was all about this crazy new thing called chatting “online”. Instantly! with strangers! I went to the library to have the librarian get me an account (I mean really, can you imagine?). I could go by...

I'm doing something wrong.
Because this happens every time: hair dresser person: How do you normally style your hair? me: I don’t. hdp: [blank] me: I require low maintenance. (I probably laugh with apology. you know, the “I’m sorry I’m no fun” laugh.) Also I would like it to not turn into a giant puff ball when I do nothing to it. hdp: Okay, great! There sure is a lot of it! I see you...
