Google's Goats and Mad Men Ends


Hello Lovelies,


This little story made me smile. I love Google truly I do. The Preppy Boyfriend received a job offer to go be a sous chef at the Google campus (it's a standing offer - as long as the head chef remains there), and we have tried a million ways to make it happen, but we always seem to end up too far away for him to work there. In the meantime Google, I admire you from afar... and am wondering since the PBF is traveling so much this month, can you send the goats over to mow my lawn?











On a much sadder note Matt Weiner the creator of Mad Men has announced that the show will conclude after six seasons in 2012. AMC says that there is no intention of ending the show, but they trust Weiner with his vision... whatever that means.... In Mad Men good news the new season is set to kick off on July 25th (which also happens to be the day I'll be running the San Francisco Marathon!) Just for the shear pleasure of it, lets have some mad men eye candy shall we? *All of the images came from a search on google images







*On a happy note this little preppy is finally over her bout with bronchitis... which means that after running a half marathon and taking three (yes three) consecutive weeks off of running or working out... she finally strapped on her running shoes again! Hurray! And with only 16 weeks (including this one) until the San Francisco Marathon not a moment too soon. I ran one mile to re-calibrate my foot pod (as we learned during the Zooma Half Marathon, my foot pod was one tenth of a mile over for every mile I ran). So the first mile I ran without timing myself b/c I was calibrating... the second mile I ran a 9:08... and yes I verified, triple checked even that it was a full mile before using it to calibrate my foot pod. I took it easy because today was my first day back, so I just ran the two miles and then enjoyed a pleasant walk... but it sure felt good to be running again! And might I add with only two weeks until Girl's Weekend At The Lake I need the positive body image boost that I get from running because all those crazy ladies are sure to take loads of pictures of us in our bikinis and they're the sort who post them on Facebook ASAP! So Facebook world, be ready to see my pale, fluffy, self in a bikini in only two short weeks!

We saw this and decided we would attempt to avoid being depressed about it! Waaaahhhh! On an up note, you certainly selected some stellar images, oh my goodness!

I'm glad your bronchitis is better, that was such a long stretch!

Smiles at you,

It's sad it will be over in 3 seasons but I hope they end it well. Glad to hear you are better!

I'm so disappointed to hear about Mad Men ending. I love the outfits! I wish everyone in society would dress up like that. Wouldn't that be great....

Good luck running the marathon! Are you also from San Fransico area?
