A time for....

....peep meets.

Seems peeps are getting together at record rates this summer, and I shall not be left out!

In 8 days, I get to connect with the likes of Silvergirl, weltek, byoffer, the LePews, cq, MCatt, Seana, Maroonclown and lightsy in Niagara Falls.

And then three weeks later, I get to meet up with Glowie and geggy in Pittsburgh. Yup, be gellus of me.

Of course, I will also be undertaking some home improvements this summer, but I'm choosing to focus on the peep meets (thinking happy thoughts rather than labour intensive thoughts).

I tend to take my little girl on walks. Put her in the stroller, and away we go. Sometimes we go for a good 45-60 minutes and go quite a distance since I have a long stride and tend to truck along pretty fast. I consider it an excersise, not just a comfortable stroll.

Well last night was goregeous - not too hot, but still shorts and t-shirt weather. So we started out on a walk. And we kept going. And going. And going.

After 90 minutes, we had covered a good 12 km loop, going from the centre/west part of town to the extreme eastern edge and back again.

Last night, I felt great.

Today, I hurt.

Needs meme

As passed along by Dweeze.

Type “(Your name) Needs” into Google and list the results. Here are some of what I got using my real name:

Meemo needs your money.
Meemo needs expert witnesses, research, and other things that the court is looking for.

Meemo needs a vacation.
Meemo needs to get a real job.

Meemo needs to address the issues themselves, rather than making the knee jerk reaction.
Meemo needs to put on weight.
Meemo needs to be committed.

and perhaps the truest of them all:

Meemo needs sexual and emotional tension, a firebrand who matches him taunt for tease.
Meemo needs to get some.
