I hate that. I was going to write a whole post about it - but I figured it was too awful and that at least half of the comments would be along the lines of 'this one time....' and I really don't want to know about it that much. I know of swimmers who have stopped mid-swim in the open water to 'deal with things' and I know of a few trail runs where more than just water weight was lost (don't finger me for that - but I DO KNOW PEOPLE) and I have two race reports in my possession (oddly both are from Hawaii) where the victims suffered greatly and provided in great detail their battle with the gods and their sacrifices left alongside the race course. Poop happens. I wish it just didn't happen to shorten the occasional mid-run stride effort on a beautiful morning causing undeserved stress on what should have been a Z2 gliding effort.
I just wanted to say that.
I also wanted to say that Miami Vice Season 3 is probably the greatest $43.99 I've spent in a long time. I watched Miami Vice as a kid sometimes but I had to do it in my parents bedroom where they had a black and white TV. I'm now getting to see the whole series (currently season 3) in color. I was surprised to see how many notable actors and tunes were a part of this show - everyone to a younger Willie Nelson, Steve Buscemi to Lawrence Fishburne and Liam Neeson. This was also the season where Crocket lost his Ferrari Daytona Spider 365 GTS/4 and got his white Testarossa. Personally, I would rather have the classic convertible since Ferraris are pretty much the only masculine convertible car worth driving (some of the late 60 Corvettes are worthy and there's a guy down the street with a 2008 Aston Martin convertible that I wouldn't exactly call effeminizing).
Greta and I watched more TV (Miami Vice) this weekend than we have in the past 6 months combined. The girls played wonderfully together white we relaxed and sat in awe of Michael Mann's fantastic production effort with non-stop helping of Jan Hammer's rocking keyboard. At times during the show I considered flipping my polo shirt's collar up and getting rid of my socks (oh wait, I HATE socks) but since I couldn't move - I just watched. I also threatened to write down some classic lines - but I'd be writing for nearly all 45 mins of each episode IT WAS THAT GOOD.
Sonny Crockett: People in stucco houses shouldn't throw quiche.
Sonny Crockett: You just got to learn to go with the heat, Rico. It's just like life. You just gotta keep telling yourself, no matter how hot it gets, sooner or later there's a cool breeze coming in.
One of our favorite characters Izzy Moreno is in all of the episodes we've seen - he's hilarious in each one. Lastly, you can never get enough of Edward James Olmos award winning 'staring at nothing' to make a point.
Izzy Moreno: Your partner looks kinda intense today.
Det. Stan Switek: I haven't seen him like this since 1983 when he chased a guy who stole a hubcap from the bug van.
Izzy Moreno: Have we already had the scene where I ask what this is all about and you say, "Shut up, we ask the questions".
Det. Stan Switek: I don't know, did we, Lar?
I also wanted to say that I had 3 memorial muffins.
