"christmas wrappings" by the waitresses.
7. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
coffee, of course.

16. Current worry right now?
that the presentation i am leading today will be too short, too boring, or unsatisfactory in some other way.
17. Current hate(s)right now?
honestly, i sort of hate the rotation i'm on. don't get me wrong, i LOVE the hours, but i don't feel like i'm really learning enough (or being useful enough) to be spending all day in clinic.
18. Favorite place to be?
19. How did you bring in the New Year?
in miami with turducken and the usual panacea of resolutions
20. Like to travel?
yes, but i don't necessarily like being a supertourist. i'd rather go somewhere and just see a few things and use the time to chillax, see friends, run, and eat exotic delicacies.

i hate when they ask things like this. who writes these things, anyway?

no. i should, though.

"if you like it then you should have put a ring on it . . ." i can't help it. beyonce is just so catchy!

an extremely cute 10 year old cleft palate patient that was full of hi-jinks
30. Worst injury you’ve ever had?
i broke my thumb in 10th grade doing a back handspring into a table. that was radiographically the most impressive, but i was probably more upset about 2007's achilles tendonitis or 2008's mysterious hip problems, both of which caused me to miss marathons i had worked hard to train for. OUCH.

workout: 8.6 miles total (i switched friday's speed run with yesterday's hill run). on the TM at 0.5%:
- 3 miles @ MP (8:41/mi)
- 4 x 800m @ cruise interval pace (7:53/mi), 2 minutes jogging between each
- 3 miles @ tempo (8:19/mi).
i'm not going to lie -- the last mile or so was rough! but i pulled through.
doin' time: sorry, no new pix today. it was leftovers night!
