Is This Weird?

Sometimes when I'm driving by myself in my car I, like most people, sing along to the radio.  What I also like to do is say the lyrics in a speaking voice and try to make it sounds like lines in a movie.  This doesn't work on all songs, of course.  Some lyrics are just too stupid to say.  One of my favorites is "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits.  Try it:

That ain't workin', that's the way you do it.
Play your gee-tar on the MTV.

That ain't workin' - that's the way you do it.
Money for nothin' and your chicks for free.

I like to create different characters and moods and make the words fit.  So...that's not weird, right?  If it is, I'm going to blame all those drama classes in high school.

Running Update

So I posted on February 28th that I was planning on running a half marathon.  I resisted saying anything prior to that because I didn't to jinx myself.  The universe has quiiiite a sense of humor, it seems.  The very next time I ran after going public with my plans I noticed a little tightness in one ankle.  I didn't think much of it but I did cut the run short at 3 miles.  After a few days of increasing discomfort, I decided to see a medical professional.  I was really rooting for a nice prescription, maybe some therapeutic massage.  I could totally get better if I had some therapeutic massage and pills that make me feel like I'm floating, I;m sure of it.  What I got instead was a diagnosis of a fibular stress fracture, a clumpy aircast boot, and no massage.

So.  This is my new announcement:  I do not want to be saddled with an iPad2.  They look hella stupid and not fun at all.  Also, m&m's are yucky and I hope I don't have any soon.
