I spent 20 minutes tonight imagining what life would be like for my hypothetical child if I named him/her Buttface. An actual child named Buttface and how all through school teachers would try to pronounce it in a way that wasn’t Buttface and this kid would have to correct them again and again every single year and same goes for substitute teachers and coaches.
I laughed so hard I cried. Baby Buttface has already brought me so much joy.
the weather is getting nice, and that means you can start logging runs outside. but just because you’re starting to squeeze in some vitamin D on the weekend doesn’t mean you necessarily have friends.
THANKS, MAPMYRUN. I GET IT.

NetiPot 4 Beginners
Yesterday was my fifth day of battling the flu for the second time this flu season. Turns out by Day Five you’ve abused your nose so much you develop anosmia. Tragically, this is also the day you begin to get your appetite back.
I have never used a NetiPot before today — because I am afraid of willingly funneling a torrent of water into my lungs — but I value my ability to taste food more than I fear death by drowning, so I decided to challenge myself.
Nobody told me that a NetiPot was just self-serve waterboarding. You try to sort out you sinuses and end up revealing you deepest darkest secrets about yourself.
That’s a lie, I don’t have secrets (double lie-tons of secrets, only secrets). However, after today I have the beautiful and unique ability to breathe again.
I won’t get into gross details but I will tell you where I ran into my biggest snag: My nose is pretty much broken from overuse from the flu. Getting to the point where this process sort of worked was a struggle. At one point I had saline leaking out of both my eyes instead of the other side of my nose. Some people call this crying.
It worked, though. Soon after long it worked. And, hot damn, I can breathe, smell, taste, and do all those other fun things having a nose affords.
This weekend I cleared out an entire room of a party by mentioning the Cannibal Cop at the wrong time. Conversation to isolation in less than 30 seconds. Good thing you don’t need anyone else around to be impressed with yourself.
If I’m ever in charge of hiring someone and subsequently touring them about the brownstone-turned-office my tour highlight will be, ‘Here’s our bathroom, hope you’re not bladder shy! It’s nestled between the President’s office and an open conference room so it will without a doubt every time feel like you’re peeing in an echo-y cavern and disturbing the work of everyone on the floor.’
my new headshots, obviously.

The LIRR was delayed for an hour and I downloaded the Tamagotchi app
I thought downloading the Tamagotchi app would be a fun way to burn through this morning’s delay. This was a lie; I hated it almost instantaneously.
