Monday!

It’s Monday! A random Monday!

Mine has been good so far. There was some running and a smoothie and thinking about the girls’ weekend that is coming up. I love the spring weather… and I found a trail to run on that is not quite so treacherous as the other one. This one had more people on it, but they were nice, and had dogs named Linko, and wanted to talk about the weather and how nice the birds sound. Not like that other trail, with that other guy with that dog that resembled Gru’s, um, “dog”. And as I passed one old man, he said, “Nice day for a run, eh?” and that made me feel special because clearly, he thought that running is something that I do. And so I gasped, “Yes. It’s lovely!” And there were two geese hanging out right in the middle of the trail, and they just weren’t moving and I was getting closer and closer, and they were starting to waddle back and forth and I thought they were going to attack me, but then they flew away instead. And then the person that was walking towards me said, “Wow… I thought maybe they were going to attack you!” And I was like, “I know! I thought so too! I thought I was going to have one of those crazy stories about being randomly attacked by an animal. We think alike! Let’s be best friends!” Well, I didn’t say those last two things. And then I got a brief lecture on how it is usually the males that attack people, and so these clearly must have been females.

Honestly.

Trail people are just so friendly.

Anyways. That is the story of my morning.

Now on to more random things! Like random pictures!

I am just about ready for things like summer and the cottage. Just about. There's a few things that I need to do first.

The time that the Shantz boys hopped the Bruce Trail. Quite the thing to witness. Four boys furiously hopping over great distances... you're truly lucky if you get to see that in your lifetime.

After the hopping. It was a cold day. I think it might have been almost a year ago.

Well, that was the random pictures.

Now for the random Youtube links! =)

Links to Youtube videos that have fascinated/entertained/amused me, along with a brief explanation: 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koNSa_6Fd1U This is the link to a trailer for Despicable Me 2. The reasons that it fascinates/entertains/amuses me seem fairly obviously. There is Gru. There is Agnes. There are minions.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTUwqxHpXMY This is a dancing Android. It is a good link to send to someone if you accidentally shoot an elastic at their face and make them cry. Even if they didn’t actually feel like you needed to apologize, and felt incredibly stupid for crying (cause it really didn’t hurt that much. Not that I know. Not that I was the crier in this situation.), you should still send it to them, because everyone should see a dancing Android.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-gQLqv9f4o ‘Cause all of us need a pep talk at some point or other. “Not cool, Robert Frost!” Everyone should watch this video. Cause “we were made to be awesome”. And sometimes it’s good to be reminded of that.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WhWDCw3Mng Is there anything cooler than a virtual choir singing a beautiful beautiful song? Hardly.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKc_Fx8rmiA When did this kind of awesome dancing go away?? And why? And how are they able to dance and have witty conversations at the very same time? I don’t get it. Everyone must have been super-coordinated back then.  Warning: this video will probably be very boring for anyone who does not appreciate a good Jane Austen novel. Even for those who do… if you watch it out of context, it will not be exciting at all. I just like the dancing. That was really all I wanted you to get out of this.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sSfbQk7DxE&NR=1&feature=endscreen Sarah Kay. She has an amazing voice. She doesn’t sing though. She just talks. She has one of those voices that it is just nice to listen to. And she says good things too. She takes poetry to a whole new level. And she seems so completely comfortable up there in front of people. I hope she has won some kind of award for how amazing she is.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co1-GiL-pJA This is the theme song from Pride and Prejudice. I just like to listen to it sometimes. Cause it’s perfect.

Okay… I think that may be all the randomness that I can muster up today. It’s hard to be random when you know that your mind is supposed to be very focused on several things.

Have a good Monday!
