So apparently my new haircut is magic.

By which I mean, ever since I got it, my sex life has been improving by leaps and bounds. Like, without any effort on my part whatsoever. I don't even have to hit on people. Which is good. Because I'm antisocial and I hate having to be the one making overtures. First the threesome. Then, tonight I met a guy I liked enough to make out with for ~20 minutes. I would have taken him home with me, but I have to get up super early tomorrow morning, and (possibly for the first time in my life) I'm not sex-deprived enough that I'm willing to give up sleep.

My running is improving by leaps and bounds. I did a charity run for colon cancer this morning. I saw a sign advertising the event yesterday night and thought, 'hey, if I wake up early enough tomorrow morning, I might as well participate.' It turned out I did wake up early enough. I wasn't sure I'd be able to run the whole 4 miles, but it turns out not only did I run the full 4 miles, but my average speed was much faster than I thought (4 miles in 00:40:20). I came in 170th (there were over 1000 people participating; the event was for both runners and walkers). I got a goodybag. And an over-sized t-shirt (sometimes it's annoying being 5 ft tall and tiny.)

Fun fact I learned today: colorectal cancer gets considerably less government funding than breast cancer despite the fact that it kills more people than breast cancer and HIV combined.

After the charity run, I got to enjoy the last day of a 3 day bluegrass festival. I came by myself, but managed to make some friends after I got there (including the dude I made out with for 20 minutes). I arrived too late to catch the Indigo Girls, but I did get to hear the last couple songs performed by Dave Alvin & The Guilty Women, the entire Roseanne Cash set, the last half of the performance by The Dell McCoury Band and the entire Emmylou(sp?) Harris set. And the food was awesome (if somewhat overpriced).



Here's some food news worth checking out:

Should you buy organic produce? Not necessarily. The above guides explain which types of produce are safe to buy cheap and which have dangerously high pesticide levels and therefore should be purchased organic. It's best to avoid produce with a pesticide score > 28.

And for the love of God, never, ever buy non-organically grown celery. It's practically more pesticide than it is vegetable.
