Is this thing on?
“Hi, my name is FunnerRunner and I’m a winter hater. A true hater. Like I want to drag it into a dark alley, stab it with my snowscraper-turned-shank and steal it’s lunch money. Then probably shank it again – just to teach it a lesson.”
Is it just me or has this month been horrifically longer than any other month EVER in the history of time? The worst part – there is still another freaking week to go!
I can’t be the only one who is finding it hard to muster up any enthusiasm…a smidgen of motivation…a hoot of good cheer…am I? Two of my favourite things are writing and running and I’m having hard time even doing those. Proof in pudding…my oh-so hectic, newly adapted, bi-weekly running and blogging schedule (meaning every two weeks, not twice a week…sad, I know). Why run in the dark, cold outdoors when I can spoon a warm golden retriever for an extra two hours each morning? Why blog about being a fun runner when clearly I’m neither right now (and Netflix has added ALL THREE SEASONS! of the original Degrassi Junior High!!)?
Well the madness has got to end. (Plus I have to get that Zit Remedy song out of my head eventually. It is shockingly catchy.) As Muffin would say, “Pull out of ‘er” (he also uses this piece of advice when I do something dumb like, oh random example, use the George Foreman without the plates). It’s a great motivator, no?
I’ve learned that just making yourself get out of a funk is the best way to get better quick. I can’t just curse away dark mornings and cold days…like I am currently doing…life is too short. As someone who lives in Canada (and plans on continuing to do just that for the foreseeable future) lying on the couch hating a good four months out of the year is simply not helping.
So, I apologize for ignoring you little blog. From now on I’ll spew out daily posts about nothing, turn out content like the production whore that is expected of me, pilfer and steal from other blogs! INTERNET DOMINATION!! Gah. No not at all. But I will try really hard to resume quality, magical writing…
Whatever, I’ll get back to writing when there is something worth writing about. Deal? Deal.
That said, I still have to recap you on December’s awesomeness! It, unlike it’s socially awkward cousin January, had lots of cool stuff happening, so what better time to fill you in than a month after the fact?!
Until then, a gratuitous puppy Piper photo.
