Save Ferris

After Watching Ferris Beuhler's Day Off, Matthew and I thought we should take a note from Ferris, Sloan and Cameron and take our own day off. I must admit that this isn't always the direct effect of watching 80's films, we tend to call in "sick" to work, dare I say once a month? We failed to get our paws on a vintage Ferrari, visit any Art museums, catch a fly ball at a Cub's game, front as Abe Froman the Sausage King of Chicago or incite a street dance riot from atop a parade float but we still had a pretty righteous day.

Making the sick call

my delight when I get a recording and not an actual human who wants to question my overall physical health.
Feasting on the best south Gilbert has to offer.
We risked going to Nordstrom Rack which is directly across the street from our office but I think we can safely assume it was well worth it when I found these gems.
and in our most un-Ferris move of the day I spent a good amount of time on homework and Matthew on reading some Steinbeck.

If you haven't called in "sick" lately I would highly recommend it, it is so choice.

What the?

How could a man so kind and gentle in appearance be mixing with my mind grapes so bad?
Deepak, if you are reading this please tell me what you are talking about in your book, In Praise of Empires?
because everytime I open it I feel like doing this (see picture below.)

In other news, the Lazy Boy is looking good, yes?

Watch My Feet

Basically I'm a runner now, its my new thing. This may come as a shock to some people, like anyone who has ever seen me run or all the people to whom I claimed to be a dancer. Dont worry I have not forgotten the words of wisdom tattooed on the lower back of one of my fellow collegiates, I still "Dance as if no one is watching." This February I plan to add Marathoner(1/2) to my long lists of talents and accomplishments. I will be joined by some of my favorite ladies, most of whom where on the staff of Gilbert Gurlzzz Gazette. Shanna, Ashley and Shelly, I hope you are ready because Mama is all business.
Here I am attempting to run during a monsoon that was bordering on being a hurricane, yeah thats right I live in AZ.
Holy smokes, I can not believe I forgot how awesome tennis shoes look with jeans!!! Here I am making it official by buying a new pair of sneaks(video included below for a behind the scenes look.)

The new shoes did make my feet feel better, however I still felt like this:
