stop being a grump.


i was grumpy by 5:30 this morning. 

i didn't want to leave my warm bed, ruby wouldn't stop crying, and then karl lagerfeld insulted and degraded adele and several other things, rick santorum ran his mouth about planned parenthood, and mitt romney ran his mouth about everything. i was in a foul mood. 

but i went to the gym. i ran three miles. i felt better.

it's days like this that i make lists and today it was this.

the most random list of things i’m thankful for:


Prop 8 being ruled unconstitutional!!!!!
XRT
The way running shorts make me feel
The Huffington Post
Arianna Huffington in general
The New York Times online, especially on Sundays, so I can save $6.00

The person who invented hair detangler
