Random Thoughts Thursday 148

  • I signed up for the Wisconsin Half Marathon this week (the race is May 5th). This will be my 10th year in a row running it! This note in registration about refunds cracked me up:

  • I’m confused by the color of this pumpkin bath fizzy. Why is it blue?! And not pumpkin colored? Things that make you go hmm. Ha. I LOVE LOVE LOVE bath bombs. LOVE.

  • I decided to get away from a watch face with a step count emphasis… but then I found this fishing cat watch face… and the cat only “catches” the entire fish if you meet your step goal. And it kind of looks like Khali (if she was wearing a space suit). So yeah, totally didn’t get away from a step based watch face, oops!

  • I had a Grandma Level Cleaning inception moment Tuesday night – I talked to my Grandma on the phone while cleaning. Ha! Grandma is muchos excited about meeting the ducks during her visit this weekend (and told me what she’d be bringing to feed them). These two ducks showed up a few weeks ago. They like to hang out in the driveway (eyeroll). I don’t think we’ve seen them before which means… they need names!

Do you see Snow in the photo?

When I try to pull in to the driveway, or back out of the garage, I have to get out of the car and walk toward these guys so they’ll move – they are not afraid of the car

  • I love this photo of me and Xaarlin from Sunday’s race! (And am happy she pointed it out to me – I completely forgot to check the race photos!)

    I love that new watch face! It would definitely be hard to resist 🙂 That refund acknowledgment is hilarious, I wonder if they really will send it back with that type of photo if someone asks for a refund…

  2. Ha! I love the Wisconsin Marathon thing. I can absolutely see people asking for refunds getting exactly what what promised them haha.

    You should name the ducks Donald and Daisy, since it looks like there’s one male and one female, yes? They don’t really look like Donald or Daisy Duck, I suppose, but they’re a couple, so I think it works 🙂

      I thought you in particular would find it amusing 😉 Read what you sign up for, peeps!

      Aww, I like that, even though they don’t look like Donald and Daisy. A house I run by out here has all white ducks that look like them! 🙂

    OMG the Wisconsin Marathon refund disclaimer. I love it! I wonder if I can get the RD for F3 to use the same thing….she’s friends with the Wisconsin RD so I bet he won’t mind if we steal it 🙂

    • kilax says:

      I bet they would be happy to have many others races use disclaimers like this – then maybe there is a chance more people will actually read them! 🙂

    Ed and frank are my votes for names 😂 I love the disclaimer I guess they have a lot of people asking for refunds etc. The race picture is cute I hope you got it!

  5. Shelley B says:

    That is a great race picture! Love it when you get a good one, especially when you’re running with a friend. 🙂

    I’d name the ducks Lucy and Ethel, regardless of actual gender. I just like that combo.

    • kilax says:

      Me too! I have done a few races with someone, where we were even matching (so it seemed obvious to me we were together) and all the pics would cut one of us off. Ha! To the photog’s credit, they have a VERY hard job and how the hell are they supposed to tell and react that fast?

      Aww 🙂 That is a good combo.

    I was also amused by that refund acknowledgment. Thanks for sharing it!

    I, of course, love the photo of your ducks. The one of them being in the driveway was especially funny to me because I could imagine you and Steven being like “Hey, ducks! You’ve gotta’ move now!” I’ll be interested to see what names you bestow upon them.

    Do you wear your Garmin as your all-the-time watch? I haven’t seen the newer ones, and I didn’t know they did step counters or fancy graphics now.

    Man, I haven’t done a bathbomb like…in 20+ years? I’ll have to go get one!

    • kilax says:

      You’re welcome 😉

      Ha! That is totally me, yelling at them from the car, then carefully trying to drive around them, then finally getting out to shoe them away. Dorks.

      I do wear it all the time. I hadn’t worn a watch 100% of the time in years until I got this one. I got used to having it on all the time and now it feels weird when I don’t. The new Garmins do a lot of stuff!

      Oh wow! Did you like them?! I totally recommend shelling out for one from Lush or B&BW 😀

  7. Bobbi says:

    I registered too, and made John come read the disclaimer and we both had a good giggle 🙂

    New ducks!!

    I love the watch face. I’m such a techie stupido that while I know you can get those things, I have zero idea about how to actually get one (so mine is the boring standard one).

    • kilax says:


      If you have the Garmin App, it’s quite simple! (You just go to More > Connect IQ Store and search there. The next time your watch syncs, it uploads it!)
