sparkle--good to know I have company in the DH area.
MelW-- for the new remedy and an easier allergy time this year for your DD.
Geo--I think you've successfully convinced me that I never want to re-upholster my couch.
Plady--I don't wax my upper lip because the couple of times I have I break out on my upper lip for the next week, which really is worse than having hair there. Instead, I'm plucking the hairs, which is probably more painful but gets rid of the hair and avoids zits. (It's slightly improved right after the shower.) The hair hasn't grown in thicker or darker or anything, so I don't know that there's a big danger of that if you wax, which is basically the same thing.
NRR: speaking of zits, I'm going to see a dermatologist on Tuesday in hopes that something can be done. I'm sure it's hormone relate, but it's got to stop. Also, I've heard wonderful things about Retin A, and being done with childbearing, I'm hoping she'll agree it's a magic cure for me. (Or that something is because I'm pretty much over fighting zits.)
RR: 21 miles. I'm applying the "done = good, good = done" theory to that. I ran it with the Rocky Mountain Road Runners as part of their marathon series. That was mostly a good idea because there was water on the course and they chose one with facilities along the route. However, they are fast. Really fast. As in, I came in third to last despite averaging a 10:40ish pace and I'm pretty sure the person ahead of me probably finished 20 or 30 minutes earlier. (The woman behind me came in 5-10 minutes later; the woman behind her was Gallowogging, I believe, and at least 20 minutes behind me about 3/4 of the way through the race in any case.) Maybe all the slow marathoners go it alone so as not to reveal our slowness? One wonders. Good: I did get to run a new-to-me section of the Clear Creek trail. Bad: it was the section that goes under I-25, runs just north of I-76 (the river is between, but it's audible) and then under I-270. Eventually Clear Creek converged with the Platte River and the interstates all veered off elsewhere.
