Hello, and happy Friday! I thought we were due for another brunch date to catch up on recent happenings, so please feel free to order a coffee (or two) and catch up with me! This week was equal parts super weird (read on and you’ll understand why), and happy to report, fruit fly free (again, keep reading!). While the waiter tries to decipher your complicated coffee order, I’ll go ahead and get started…
Remember last week when I was having all the trouble in the world with fruit flies (thanks again for your suggestions Kristen and Miranda!)? Well, it seems that they have been (mostly) conquered! They are no longer hovering in the bathroom, and I’ve only encountered two in the kitchen this week! My friend, who lives right downstairs was having the same problem so I’m wondering if it was specific to our apartment complex, rather than something Jake and I were doing wrong? I will say that I kept up with the ACV trick, and over the weekend I scrubbed down the counters with a little bit of baking soda, so maybe that helped? Either way, I’m just glad they are gone!
The Grumpiest Yogi
Wednesday evening I met up with my friend, Eme, for a hot yoga class to celebrate International Yoga Day! Apparently, not everyone was in the celebratory spirit as we encountered one dude who is apparently very weird about his yoga mat. To preface this story a little, I should mention that our was in the smaller room at the studio, and the attendance was at max capacity, so we were all crammed together like sardines. Before class starts the instructor politely asked that if you have your phone or your keys with you to please step out and go put in a cubby or locker so it’s not to disturb the class. As one guy leaves to go put away his keys he accidentally steps on someone else’s mat, and the “offended” guy kind of snorted and said: “I can’t believe he just stepped on my mat!” No one really acknowledged him and we just waited for class to start, but the awkward tension was palpable. When the guy who went to put away his keys came back, the grumpy guy stopped him and was like, “Do NOT step on my mat!” I am put off by this for two reasons:
- It’s not even his mat. The studio provides mats and towels.
- Get over it, dude! It’s a hot yoga class. We’re all about to get disgusting anyways
People being rude for literally no reason at all really grinds my gears, and I know this is bad, but I did enjoy every time the grumpy fell out of a yoga pose or didn’t do it right.
Doctor Who Run Club
I’ve really gotten into virtual runs this year (I say “really”…I’ve only done two), and I’m always on the hunt for one with a cool theme. Last week, I kid you not, I was just typing in random things I’m interested in followed by “run club” and stumbled upon Whovian Running Club! It’s a Doctor Who themed virtual run club that puts on races complete with medals, race bibs, and t-shirts! I signed up for the Villians VI Miler, and the medal is based off the Van Gogh episode and features a bunch of classic Doctor Who villains! I love it when nerd world and running world collide!
I hope you all had a great week, and have a wonderful weekend! Rain permitting (curse you, summer storms), my dad and I will be running the Viva La Margarita 5k tomorrow morning! Last year we ran the 10k, but that race was in April, so we figured we’d dial back the miles with it taking place smack dab at the start of summer this year. Hopefully I’ll see you all on Monday with a race recap! Cross your fingers that it doesn’t rain!
