May I please wash your dishes?!?

It looks like there will be a lot of  people coming to watch the NY half marathon.   We’ll be having quite the gathering after the race.  It is going to be an eclectic group.   High school friends, fraternity brothers, football team friends, friends of friends,  NY friends.   I hope I run well……

I can not wait to reward myself with a Guinness.  Oh, how sweet that will taste.  Only 12 days left.

Weather like today for March 21st.  That would be perfect.

Have not heard back from the community center for my volunteer interview.  Is it possible to be rejected? At the very least I know they need people to help serve meals.  I can wash dishes.  I did it for 2 years at an Italian bakery while in high school.    Maybe I should have put that down as one of my interests……

I’ll be buying a pair of running shorts at lunch today.  I’m hoping they don’t look too  _______ .   I’ll let you fill that blank in with whatever word you’d like.

You know you have lost weight when the sweater that you shrunk 3 sizes because you are an idiot and do not know how to read wash instructions (I even took the thing to my Mom’s house so I could wash it myself)   now fits.

I wrote about legacy benefits and pension plans in a post a couple of days ago.  Here is an article from the NYTimes that discusses the risks pension plans are being forced to take.  It interests me because it is what I do for a living, but also because it happens to be my money that they are playing with to fund benefits that I think are absurd: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/09/business/09pension.html?hp

This article is frightening.  How on earth are we going to pay for all of these “promises” that have been made?  Short article.  Take a look.
