I don’t often mention my friends on this blog, but yesterday I stumbled across their secret facebook thread about my half marathon and felt a strong desire to share with my blog a few things.
- My friends are my world
- They’re all ridiculously, ridiculously good looking individuals
- They’ve supported my recent life choices and for that I sincerely thank them
- They never judge me for my dumb blonde comments such as thinking the flashing light on the back of cabs was incase someone was locked in the boot. Apparently it’s incase someone sticks a gun to the driver’s head… who knew?
- I snort laugh when I’m with them. Yes, they’re that funny.
- They’re lazy. Like me
- I am 110% myself with them.
- I can talk about everything and anything with them.
- They want what’s best for me. Sincerely too. None of that ‘frienemies’ crap going on.
They don’t read this blog, but I feel the need to thank each of them for simply being who they are and being there every step of the way with me; on the way up (hmm ice-cream, wings, cookies, cakes, candy, McD’s breakfasts, street meat,) and on the way down (hmmm subway, 1 point fudgesicles, running)
Here’s the message my friend Adrian sent out. As you can see.. he’s pretty effing awesome.
dear you guys,
as you may or may not know, our foreign friend E has been training to run a half-marathon on sunday, september 27th. consequently, i think it would be a nice surprise if the people she cares about most (aka. us) were waiting for her at the finish line with “uge” signs that express our support and love for her hard work. for reasons beyond my control, the race starts at the ungodly hour of 7:30am and the participants have a time limit of 3 hours and 40 minutes to finish. i don’t know how fast E runs, but i think (to be safe) we should meet up at around 8:30am so we can get coffee and find a strategic place by the finish line (nathan phillips sqaure). i know this is crazy early (especially for a sunday), but i think E deserves it and i think we deserve the chance to embarrass E with signs like “E IS MY AMERICAN IDOL” or “I CHOO-CHOO-CHOOSE E”. i guess signs aren’t mandatory, but maria and i will have them, so you might as well fit in. ok, so to summarize:
WHAT? surprise party (of sorts).
WHERE? city hall, nathan phillips square.
WHEN? sunday, september 27th at 8:30am.
WHY? shut the fuck up and just do it!
ps - i cannot emphasize enough that this is going to be a surprise! if you ruin it and tell her, i will tear off your arm and break your kneecaps with it — or something less violent, but just as hurtful.
pps - other sign ideas include:
-E IS LIKE A JONAS BROTHER TO ME
-WHATCHU TALKIN’ ‘BOUT, E?!
-LIKE A GOOD NEIGHBOUR, E IS THERE
-E SUCKS AT SCRABBLE
-THE ROAD IS LONG, BUT E IS LONGER (encouraging AND suggestive)
you get the idea.
Some of those signs I’m not sure y’all would get, but you get the picture; literally. See? Awesome. Also the “uge” reference is because apparently with my accent when I say ‘huge’ it sounds like ‘uge.’ If this post had a title, it’d be ‘Fuck Yeah! Friends’
