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!
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?
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:
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.
So there you go. I may be a very manly teenage girl.
What about y’all? What slightly
embarrassing unusual obsessions do you have?
