hello austin, texas.
thank you for welcoming home with sunshine. i have missed you so. please dont kill me on my run tonight. love, mare.
On my first flight, I may or may not have been that person who leans on you while sleeping and maybe drools on your shoulder… Oops. Sorry, stranger…
Remember that "16 and Pregnant" episode with...
‘cause it is so ‘heaven’ spelled backwards… i thought that would be the only time i’d ever hear such ridiculousness. but no. while facebooking, i saw an adult post that exact sentence. Seriously, people?

I’m currently sitting at the base of the stairs in my lobby waiting for super shuttle. They were supposed to be here 30 minutes ago. I’m not mad they are late… I just wish I would have known so I could have slept a bit more. My eyes are struggling to stay awake and are bloodshot. It’s painful being so far yet so close to my warm bed.
it is too early for me to be awake.
can i just crawl back into bed now pleeeaaase?
these are the types of calls i get from my...
little brother: mary?
little brother: so by now i assume you have heard about ricky martin being gay...
me: . . . silence . . . really? im at work. no time.
little brother: giggle giggle giggle giggle. ok. love you. bye.
I confess to you:
when i first started working at my current job, i considered going by something else other than “mary” because another girl works there has a name similar to mine. so instead of going by my middle name (which in retrospect wouldve been awesome), i thought that “choo-choo train bacelis” would have been a better choice. *sigh*

PS, UPS, P-effing-S:
ok. i know you’re just doing your job, dude. but when you leave that damn infonotice whatever slip on my mailbox saying that i have to sign it to authorize you to leave my packages in the lobby, i take it seriously. i, of course, sign the slip! and it upsets me when i leave it for you at the mailbox, and instead, you just leave me a SECOND NOTICE for one package, and another first notice...

why is it so hard being a girl sometimes?
i lovelovelove nail polish. ((kaylen can attest to this as i have a basket full of nail polish which are mostly pinks and reds…)) BUT i now rarely take the time to do my nails because a day or two later, they always chip. RAH! and it is irritating because i always use a top coat. how does one prevent chipping?

Julia Allison: Goodbye, for now. →
Hello there. Although I don’t know you and you don’t - let’s face it - really know me, we’ve been through a lot. I started blogging in 2006, and began this lifecast in 2007. I chugged away, dutifully recording these bits of my existence, photographing and captioning and -… you will be missed. oh. wait. no you wont…
i vaguely remember seeing something about wanting to know who that girl i went to college whose pictures you are in is. (mouthful. whoa.) i can’t find the post. but her name is frances.
the best way to end a weekend and the only way to...

Kaylen & I are watching "The Firm"
apparently first year lawyers cheat on their wives at the grand cayman islands. hrmph.
today i drank a guiness with my coworkers. i may or may not have tried to get that little marble outta the can. (i was unsuccessful) i ran 3 miles at an amazing pace. now im home being a lame dork analyzing my recent running activities online. life doesnt get much better than this. i hope you all have a fabulous st. patrick’s day. drink a drink for me (i live vicariously through...
We've got news. →
awww no. so happy for you, but so sad for san francisco. you guys are such good energy for this place. i wish there were more people like y’all. inspiring, happy, loving, grateful people. people, i bet, that i would actually enjoy being around. (is it crazy to say that even though i dont know-know you?) anyways… (via withoutmelissa)
all quiet on the western front.
i have so many photos to share with you, but have yet to upload them on my computer. :( i haven’t had the time to write my little rants because of the whole work and running thing. (running so much is taking a lot out of me.) and now that lacey is no longer a part of it - well, something is missing. :( sorry. i need to get in a routine. and clear space on my computer. eep. on that...
what would the cheapest way to get from Austin...
i have a plan in the works. but now i need help with logistics. RAH!!
I ran up California Street. Twice.
I could say that after 8 weeks of running more than I ever thought possible it was a piece o’cake. But I won’t lie. Instead, I’ll tell you it was a form of torture and that at several times I wanted to hurl myself down the hill and roll to a standstill at the bottom. But at least there were some good views…
