I May Be A Teenage Girl

I really like Thursdays now-a-days.  Thursday evenings mean I have completed another week of workouts (until the weekend).  Fridays are a rest day for me at this point in the schedule.  So yay for Thursday being the new Friday.

I usually like to run with Thursday Night Social Run when I can.  It’s a fun group of like-minded runners who run, then hang out with food and drink specials at an ever rotating carousel of establishments.  So that is something to look forward to too!

Some of our group.  Let's play "Where's Scott?"

And of course, now it’s American Football season and they televise some games on Thursday nights, so that’s usually on wherever we meet.  Not to mention Baseball playoffs going on, and basketball about to start up.  Fall is great.  Speaking of which, the weather finally got cool this week!!!  The last couple days have been in the 50’s overnight with mid 70’s during the day.  And I’m proud to report that we had some rain, and the rain made the humidity go away!

But back to the title of this post.  Here’s why I may be a teenage girl.  Thursday also means there’s a new episode of Vampire Diaries.  Don’t ask me why, but I’m very much hooked on that show.  Yes, it’s a show about high school vampires…and werewolves…and witches…and ghosts.  What can I say?

Aren't they so dreamy?  Er, uh, I mean isn't she hawt?

They also have a spinoff that started this season called The Originals.  I am also into that.  I can’t help it.  Especially since it is set in one of my absolute favorite cities in the world – New Orleans!  Here’s me after the Half Marathon there:

Hey Mister! I like your "throw".

Hey Mister! I like your “throw”.

Finally, even though I’ve given up running with music, when I did I always had Dashboard Confessional on the playlist.  I don’t know why I love that band so much either.  But if you ever see their MTV Unplugged Concert (I have dang near worn out the DVD), most of the audience in studio are teenage gals.  I’ve since seen the band in concert a couple times.  Even once after running a Half Marathon in Dallas and could barely walk…but I sure danced!

The guitar player from that band is also a solo artist and lives here in Dallas.  I met him at a show recently and I think I scared him a little with my talk of DC – “You’re definitely not our normal demographic.” he said.

John Lefler.

So there you go.  I may be a very manly teenage girl.

What about y’all?  What slightly embarrassing unusual obsessions do you have?

  1. You really may want to check that out my friend.

    I can shamfully admit that I listened to 98 degrees yesterday on my run. That definitely brought me back to when I WAS actually a teenage girl. I guess I’m not that far off. . .

  2. LOL. K wait, answer this question: Are you obsessed with Taylor Swift and/or Justin Beiber. If you answered “Yes” to either of those questions, I’m afraid, my friend, you are a teenage girl.

    I’ve never told anyone I watch this show, but on Lifetime (already strike 1), there’s a show called Drop Dead Diva…I kind of got really into it. So embarrassing.

    • Hahaha! Fortunately no, I have no interest in Swift or Beiber. So maybe I’m safe…Thanks for clearing that up!

      Wow, that is embarrassing. I’m glad that I have never heard of that show. 😉

  3. I love Vampire Diaries and I’ve developed a new crush on Klaus on The Originals. They are fun shows — great plot twists if you can suspect disbelief (which I usually have no problem doing what with all the eye candy).

    It’s got me reminded how much I want to visit New Orleans. I have a friend who doesn’t live far (he swims with the gators) who keeps telling us we need to go.

    • Yes, I think the shows are well done all around! Who knew that supernatural creatures were all so attractive? Ha!
      If you go to NOLA, let me know and I’ll give you some places to visit for sure! But it will not include gator swimming – Crazy!

  4. That pic better not be from this week. Because one person in it (who’s name may begin with a “T”) isn’t supposed to be running right now before her marathon…..

    And yes, you are a girl. Do you read Cosmo Teen too?

    • Don’t worry, the pic is from a month or so ago. Besides, I don’t think T and P actually reside in the area anymore. They always seem to be in CO, Chi, Key West, etc. etc. etc.

      And thanks for confirming. I’m off to renew my subscription to Cosmo Teen, thanks for the reminder!

  5. You are almost too girly for me. I’ve never watched those shows, but I do hear that the ladies love them. It’s okay to embrace your feminine side this month, but you might want to try and save face and grow a mustache for Movember!

  6. I haven’t seen Vampire Diaries, but I know of other guys that watch it too! I’m embarrassingly addicted to Pretty Little Liars..It’s sort of a teenage-girl homage to Hitchcock and I’m hooked!
