I got lucky today. I called a hotel that I KNEW was booked up for friday night just to see if they had anything available for saturday night - the weekend of my marathon june 13th. Apparently I called at just the right time, they had a room open for BOTH nights!!!1! Sweet! Looks like we will actually be comfortable both nights around this marathon.

The funniest thing was when I called to cancel the other reservation. I couldn't understand anything the woman said. But I did figure out that every sentence ended with her calling me "honey". I am generally fluent in redneck, but that was something foreign to me. Kentucky flavored toothless redneck is a new one. At first I thought I had called a library in New Jersey by mistake.

One other thing is new. I did something I swore I would never do, and that is join Facebook. You know it's not going to be cool anymore since I signed up. I call that the Glaven effect, where you can instantly lower the standards of something. Friend Request me (John Flynn Greenville, SC) if you haven't already done that.

FB is pretty cool. I didn't want to register b/c I didn't want anyone else to find me. Specifically, people that were real assholes when I last talked with them 5 to 15 years ago. They can use the phone book or google to find me like anyone else can if they want to touch base. I would rather be friends with people face to face than just on FB. But I did find some people that I had lost touch with that were really gone. One girl lives in alaska now, one in knoxville, and I was really close with these folks back in the day. So I'm down with facebook now.

It's a good day. but my week still feels off. It still feels like tuesday, I did yoga this morning and going for speedwork tonight. This is normal tuesday stuff. but it's already wednesday.

First Facebook...what's next, an iPhone? Only then will your migration to the Dark Side be complete.

Hi, I'm new to your blog. I found it by googling "clueless Cletus" and "closeted gay" and your blog was the first 15 hits I got. (The next 10 were all Jeff Foxworthy.) And when I clicked on the first link, the new beta GoogleWarning said, "You sure? Because he really is a big old gay Cletus" and I said, "Yeah, but do it in safe mode so I don't get any of those Carolina cooties."

I see now GoogleWarning was really remarkably restrained in its characterization of your blog.

But ... this Glaven dude you mention seems cool. So it wasn't a total loss.

There. Helping you out.

Congrats on the hotel score! That same weekend I'm dumping over 500 on a two night minimum at Grandma's. The place better be SPOTLESS!

Everybody in the south is honey or baby. I had to get over that little piece of feminism when I moved south. It's just the way it is...but sometimes you DO need an interpreter (truly).
