I survived. Barely. There was a lot of hyperventilating, near breakdowns, etc. My dad extended his stay late Monday night and was really excited to stay a little bit longer. Then, as it always happens, there was a ton of drama. He no longer wanted to stay with his brother ((i don’t blame him)) and tried to switch his flight back to what was supposed to be yesterday afternoon. I told...
When you play Germany, you are screwed. Did you see that one run and cross Özil did in today’s game? That will happen on Saturday. And I will love like this: bahahahaha. Love, Mare.
Mexico star's father quits coaching job to watch... →
This is a neat article. So there’s a player for Mexico Javier Hernandez a.k.a Chicharito. His dad works for the Chivas, a huge team in Mexico, and he had asked for time off to go see his son play at the World Cup. Let me repeat that: to see his SON play at the World Cup Chivas refused. They REFUSED to give him time off to go see his SON play at his first World Cup. So he quit....

comcast. round 2.
all last night, our cable wasn’t working. first just HD and HBO wasn’t. so i did the online chat thing with a comcast rep and they reset the box. 3 times. each time, they said it would be fixed and all my channels would be working in 20 to 45 minutes. after the last time at 1 am, i just went to bed in a huffypuffy mood. (WE WANTED TO WATCH SOCCER, DAMMIT!!!!) i told kaylen if it...
if my cable doesnt work, i swear i will lose it.
3 hours is too long to waste. RAH!
thank you for your kind words over the past few...
they are all appreciated. :) today is my first full day back in the city. i ran 15.5 miles this morning and it was very therapeutic. the weather was perfect. i love feeling the crip air against my skin when running… so it was a huge improvement from last week’s run which was supposed to be 20 miles but ended up being 7.44. tonight, we are going on a date to the county fair. :) i...
uh. is anyone else's dashboard all f'ed up?
2010 FIFA World Cup: France 0-2 Mexico →
I can only wonder what kind of non-sequitur Raymond Domenech will use this time to explain Les Bleus’ complete apathy on the pitch. He used the marriage proposal card after a disgraceful exit at Euro ‘08, and will have to come up with something for L’Equipe after this debacle. Both sides… this was a phenomenal game. i had high hopes for mexico this year. i thought that with...
i will be quiet for a while. my grandmother passed away yesterday and i am spending some much needed time with my family, especially my dad. if it weren’t for the support system i have (including especially at work), it would be much harder than it has been. right now, i am more concerned about my dad. i am going to be his “person” right now. so thanks, work. and thank you,...
lavidasf replied to your post: saturday at silver cloud EEEEW! Next weekend is North Beach Festival - I’d imagine it will be similar to how Union Street Fest was for you :) i sure hope so… last night was just weird. let me know next time you plan on coming in and i will look for you guys. :)
saturday at silver cloud
last night consisted of: the UFC fight. so dumb. the few people that were there were absolutely not ordering drinks and kept looking at me like i was crazy when i offered to get them something… two east coast guys, one of which was a tom cruise lookalike, who kept insisting i sit with them so they can tell me about drama with their friends. in case you were wondering, two of their friends...
Today will be my first time running 20. It is warm today. Hopefully my body can handle the change in weather on top of the additional miles. Help me raise money for Breast Cancer Research.

Skip to the 45 second mark, lovies. I wish you could see my entire outfit. Will post pic of that later. Woop.
World Cup Friday
This morning I woke up at 5 am. Got in a cab at around 5:45 with Mayra & Karen. Arrived at Mercury Lounge by 6:00. There weren’t that many people there to watch the game, so we we were able get some nice seats. We sipped some coffee, mimosas, and eventually ate some chilaquiles. Mexico played their usual game. They had so many opportunities in the first half that should have ended...
Please Help Me Raise Money For Breast Cancer... →
As some of you might know, I am running the San Francisco Marathon on July 25. This is my first time running 26.2 miles - hell, it is my first time running more than 3 miles. I just realized I was able to fundraise for a charity and am hoping to raise at least something. Two of my aunts had breast cancer, one of whom passed away. Breast cancer is a disease that we have to find a cure for. So...

yesterday, someone told me that law school is where relationships go to die. i wanted to punch this person in the face.
where are YOU watching the World Cup game on...
and on a scale from 1 to 10, how excited are you?
Friday: Happy Hour @ Maya - Wine, beer, and yummy tacos. Seriously. Maya has really good carne asada tacos. but only during happy hour. Not during lunch. Ran 18 Miles - I didn’t think I would survive after not having ran for 2 weeks. But I did it slowly and survived. I took my first ice bath since high school and cried like a big baby. My legs are killing me. Boo. Silver Cloud ...
bah. can i just not go run 18 miles and say i did?
id rather be in bed right at this moment. wish me luck. hopefully i don’t die today cause i gotta work tonight. boo.
mexico played a friendly match against italy today. mexico won. woop. i ran 3 miles and didnt die. there was even a hill thrown in there. i had no interview questions prepared. oops. we are getting dvr. why? because the world cup starts in less than a week. i will be working at silver cloud saturday beginning at 6.
Can you help me with something?
If you could do me a solid, keep me honest about this whole running thing. You see, I’ve fallen off the horse (back in April) and can’t get back on. Between happy hours, baseball games, surgeries, and random dinners, I can’t keep my running schedule consistent and I’m not doing it as much as I should. For example: my last run was over a week ago. Yesterday, I tried to run during lunch. I failed...
