The Fairest Week in Review: 11/18

Hi, everybody! How was your weekend? I finally saw Escape to Tomorrow, and I have... thoughts. So there's that to look forward to this week. Aside from that, I'm trying to wrangle Moon for another post or two; her mom's doing fine but she has a new paramour. You know how it is. [insert eyebrow waggle here ;)]

As for my training, it was a little wonky last week. Since I had Monday off, I jammed in one of my loooooong runs - I set my record of 22 miles. I'd done 20 before and really didn't think another two would be a big deal. I was wrong. I mean, I didn't die or anything, but I mostly walked them. Up to 20? Still feeling pretty strong. After 20? Not so much. Therefore I think I'll make my next looooong run another 20-miler and then give 22 another shot.

I have a musical selection this week! I'm not against but not a particular fan of The Lonely Island of "I'm On A Boat" fame, but Elizabeth has introduced me to a song of theirs called "Lazy Sunday" which features a chorus that goes like this: "It's the Chronic-WHAT?-cles of NARNIA!" And as a lifelong Narnian, I am honor-bound to play it every hour on the hour for the rest of my life. It's deeper magic from before the dawn of time, you know.

One more thing... what was it... oh yes: 16 DAYS TO WDW.

- Slightly NSFW depending on your office's swear word policies, but these Pixar memes as shared by the Disney Hipsters are HILARIOUS.

  1. I had a lot of separate chats about ESCAPE during my trip and nothing was... super positive? But everyone was like YOU SHOULD STILL WATCH IT. Looking forward to your thoughts! Happy Monday!

    1. I think everyone who is a crazed Disney completist SHOULD watch it! We must leave no Disney stone unturned! But we can't be surprised when we discover that the underside of a rock, much like the backside of water, is only as exciting as its delivery.

      Happy Monday to you too! :D

  2. I love these posts were you recap other bloggers for the week. It introduces me to some new blogs with out really having to search! Thanks!
