friday ramblings

this is not official, but i think i'm going to remain a Vikings fan this year. i really couldn't figure out what to do with having Favre on the team, as i hate him with such passion...but i've always been a Vikings fan...and i'm playing fantasy football this year, so i have to pay close attention to the now that he's actually on the team, and this isn't just a dream, i think i'm gonna stick with 'em. as jbuck said, either Favre loses or the Vikings win - i win, no matter what.

i know i said i'd leave the Vikings if they took on Brett Favre...but I also said i'd never run a marathon. sometimes things happen. and i'll make this official, or not, before the season starts.

with that, i am in a "very serious" fantasy football league this year at work. i think i surprised them a little when i signed up, but it'll be fun. i've got a few cheat sheets to work off of, friends are willing to help and i think some players are cute. when all else fails, i'll go to the hotness factor. the boys i'm playing against will love it.

and i'm going to Vegas tomorrow to see Daughtry with some super fun peeps. we have plans to eat, drink, gamble, eat, daughtry, pool, eat, drink,'ll be fabulous.

ps i won a bet! lercher has started to fall apart - just after his 30th bday. i asked him to refresh my memory on our actual wager:
kristie44: do you remember our actual bet?
lercher: margaritas in mexico
lercher: you were complaining that 30 is when your body starts to break down
lercher: I said, I'm doing fine
lercher: you bet that I would start to fall apart, which I turned in to, going to visit the dr
lercher: loser has to buy margaritas in mexico
lercher: the next day, you said, since it was all inclusive, how would that work? I said, we'd leave the hotel and go to a bar
lercher: instead of an entire log of how the whole thing happened, I suppose I could have just said yes, I remember
lercher: and now you're posting this all somewhere, aren't you?

my Daughtry challenge

i'm goin' to Vegas this weekend to see Daughtry in concert. after getting Daughtry's second album, i've decided he's really just an excuse to go to Vegas again...celebrate a marathon...and hang with fun friends. but i'm making an attempt to like his music. i listened to bon jovi & daughtry almost all day yesterday, and this morning i'm going to dig through his lyrics to find the brilliant cheesiness that JBJ uses. here we go...

~ i can't find any...i'll try again later ~

more running...

my next race is the SJ Rock n Roll half-marathon...i ran it last year, and this year i gotta beat jj's time. this means i have to get fast...i'm not sure i can, but it's a good challenge. (and once i beat him, i'll hold all titles within our running group)

i also made another wager with jj...for which i was just called an idiot...but if he runs a sub-4 full marathon, i have to do another marathon. (i think i'm in trouble)

there's another wager that i haven't mentioned - brooke & i have an agreement that if i do run another full marathon, i have to wear a favre jersey. (now i'm really in trouble)

happy trails!

from my genetics counselor:

Dear Kristie,

I just got your test back = “NO MUTATION DETECTED”

Meaning that you do not have any of the known mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, including the one found in your sister. We call this a "True Negative."

chemo & genetics

My sister’s going through her third chemo treatment right now…
She said she was feeling really good this past week, so I’m thankful she had a good week…but it’s rough to go back to square one in chemo side effects again. They’re mixing up her drugs a little this time to try to prevent some of the annoying side effects. I sure hope it works…

Unreal…my life continues as is while my sister and her family continue down the cancer path…or the making sure cancer is completely gone path…

Meanwhile, I'm waiting for the results from my genetics test to see how likely it is that I'll get breast cancer in my life...

Heavy stuff for a Friday morning. Mybad!
