That would be a fiver

So I ran five miles tonight. yay! Another step closer to the PF Chang's half in January.

One question, though: Why is it when I step just a little bit faster do I suddenly turn into a grandma?

My nose runs, my stomach gets bubbly and my hip feels like it is a rusty hinge.

Oh, and my hair turns white. EVERY TIME

Any other runners out there? Share your war stories!

I knew it!

My dream has come true.

I have an action figure set on my desk featuring Superman, Lois Lane and the American flag.

Ordinarily, they are posed in a normal stance.

Yesterday, Superman had his arm around Lois.

I now have plans to set up a hidden camera overnight to catch them in the act.

I KNEW dolls came alive after dark!

The Fave Five

I haven't blogged in a while because every time I sign on, blogger takes about 6 years to load. Somehow today I got lucky.

These are my top 5 restaurants lately. Tell me what else I should try!

1. radioMilano: On 40th Street and Campbell. I fell in love with their hand-made pasta with vegetables and goat cheese. I am a huge sucker for goat cheese, yet I don't particularly enjoy goats. Catch-22? No, more like Double Jeopardy. I also adored the olive oil cake, served with jam and cream. I know what you're thinking - jam? gross! But actually jam is quite delicious. The staff also was incredible. We were running late for a Shins concert, and they got us out of there in 30 minutes.

2. Swaddee Authentic Thai Cuisine in Tempe: Just named Best of Phoenix by the New Times. I had "Coconut Princess" and enjoyed it v much.

3. La Grande Orange in Phoenix: Always. Especially the egg pizza. love it!

4. Four Peaks Brewery in Tempe: Mainly the french fries, which are some of the best I've ever had. Add to that the sweet jalapeno dipping sauce and you got yourself a party.

5. Giovanni Pizza Bistro: In Tempe, Baseline and Mill. This best-kept secret is so unknown, the last time we went there we were the only patrons for about 2 hours. Then we left, so we may have been the only patrons that night. Despite the sketchy service, the food is really good and the tables always have real flowers on them. I especially like the rolls - order pepperoni or spinach.

P.S. This is my second attempt to post this blog today. Blogger froze the computer.
