    Jocelyn you’re just too funny- the best!That music at the end – sounded like the drunks down the road exiting the hotel at 2a.m. – thank god for the guitarist at the end, which I equate with the relief of the police car drawing up outside the hotel saying “move on”.Congratulations on your run – I’m a bit of an expert in the “toilet au naturale environs” myself (as a camper you understand) and admire your dexterity because a key is probably the last thing on your mind.Thanks for making my morning giggle along.

    may i just say that given what has transpired at chez lime during the last few days were i to give full voice to the thoughts in my mind i would have charred into unrecognizable ash whatever blackened timbers remain of the bridges someone else set afire.

    that being said, the image of your close encounters of the ipod kind brought a great grin across my face. for that reason alone i would be willing to campaign for profiteroles on your behalf.

    This running thing…just can’t seem to do it. I actually went out yesterday afternoon to attempt to jog. At the top of my first hill I encountered a black bear. I believe sprint is the correct word for my retreat.

    Glad you kept your head together. I think I would have fainted on the spot. This is yet another of the many list of reasons why I am completely agin any form of exercise as it’s far too dangerous to my mental health.

  5. Say It says:

    what a nightmare. Its a good thing you had enough energy to get home. I would have found a phone and called for a ride. yikes. Actually, I wouldn’t have been on a 70 minute run. ha-ha! Sorry about the key and the family fun hunt.

    You can definitely count me in as willing -and able -to vote for the profiteroles and probably even volunteer to campaign for ’em too.
    But your 4th item on your list -can you just imagine if a certain group of people known especially for talking out of both sides of their mouths were to follow your suggestion how big of an explosion that would create in Washington? Wow! Incredible, wouldn’t it be? And that’s probably the only way we’d ever be able to clean house there and try to find people who speak their own minds then to replace them, I suppose.
    Loved the post -great humor there even though I can’t share in your love of running as it hurries me to rise from my chair and takes a good minute or two to get all my fat and flab to resituate itself so I can walk to the kitchen for another cup of java.

    profiteroles are rife with controversy.

    just sayin, this could get explosive.

  8. Princess Pointful says:

    I lost you at 70 min run.
    Even She Sells Sanctuary isn’t that inspiring.

  9. chelle says:

    WOW! You are my hero that you can run that LONG!!! I will work up to that! Wow!

    Sorry you lost your key that really sucks.

    man, I love me some Smiths. this was one of the greatest uses of their music since my friend videotaped his python eating a rat to “I Know It’s Over”

  11. cathy says:

    Yes, exercise is great until you have to do some more. I’m a bit out of shape of late, I can just about summon the strenth to strech a rubber band.Hope you find your key.

    this is one of those moments when, if i had your email, i would privately send you a note of thanks for your words of support. i would also share with you the carefully crafted letter i am sending to the viper as well as the less carefully crafted (though by no means impotent) one which i’d very much LIKE to send.

    i am also thinking back to your william carlos williams inspired vent regarding a most irritating student. it makes me smile.

    thank you kindly, my psychic sister.

    It’s quite astounding how such perfection of a day can suddenly turn to pure moldy shit when your key is MIA.

    Good luck with the search-and-rescue effort. At least, think how slinky fit your well-exercised body is!

  14. stepping over the junk says:

    I totally hear you. Yesterday, I was on my walk and had this sudden urge to start running again, right there. Unfortunately I was wearing a regular underwire bra and was wearing walking shoes and not my running shoes. I believe today I will be putting my running shoes on

    Wouldn’t it be easier to just get a new key made?

  16. Glamourpuss says:

    So somewhere in the woods there’s a pee-covered key with your name (and pee) on it? Sounds like you need to ask the pixies and magic elves to find it for you.

    Two things:

    1. “This dessert is not to be confused with puff pastry.” Heaven forbid. How insulting.

    2. If I tried to run for 70 minutes the only Smith song I would be singing is “Girlfriend in a Coma”.

    would you just allow me to sit in a corner of your brain for a couple of days? i need to laugh.

  19. Karen MEG says:

    Profiteroles, the Cure and Morissey all in one post …. no wonder I love you!!!

    Blissy is good!

  20. That Chick Over There says:

    I want you to be President please.

    Thank you.

  21. Jazz says:

    Profiteroles and meters… are you going all European on us?

    Or Canadjun eh?

  22. pistols at dawn says:

    My problem with getting Morrissey songs in my head is that I sing them like the Moz (but crappier), and there is no way to look tough and/or cool when you’re telling Fatty she’s the one for you.
