The Fairest Week In Review: 11/25

JENN: Happy Thanksgiving Eve! So how’s life post fall? Are you recovering nicely? MOON: Mm-hm, but I’m still unable to run. But, stairs! And cello. I can play cello and do stairs for a bit. JENN: All good things! I am officially injured now too. 🙁 Although I couldn’t tell you WHY. MOON: Lol, phantom ailment! JENN: My first run after I got back from WDW, for no apparent reason, my right Achilles tendon was like, “Hmmm, no, I’m not entirely sure I like this.” And it’s been repeating that message ever since, albeit with varying degrees of intensity. I thought I had bested it...

The Fairest Week In Review: 11/17

JENN: All right! So, I understand no running has occurred but you have an exciting reason? MOON: Well, running occurred before Tuesday, but on Tuesday… Well, it’s not that exciting, really. I just fell on the street. JENN: Oh no! Are you okay?! MOON: The fall was pretty nasty. Phone, keys went flying (although I kept my shoes) My hip got pretty smashed. I still can’t lift my leg. I’ve discovered this past week that you kind of need your hip for most things. Official FROA injury mascot. JENN: Yeah, it’s helpful… Have you been checked out?! MOON: So,...

Kill/Refurb/Marry: My Magic+

Yes, I’m back from Walt Disney World. 🙁 Trip/race reports forthcoming, of course, but first I’m knocking out this month’s Kill/Refurb/Marry – for the last time. :/ The infrastructure on the blog hop has changed so much that I can completely understand why it’s ending, but I’m bummed; it was nice to have it in the monthly post rotation. Ah well. Onward! The final topic is My Magic+. Hmmmmmm. Tough one. Kill: Magic Band BatteriesI have wracked my brains and decided to kill the battery inside Magic Bands. They only last a year, which means piles of Magic Bands will become...
