Marking Our Territory

Yesterday on the way home from the Lab, Jason and I stopped at Oakbrook Mall because I wanted to go to the Apple store to get the new iWork '08 suite. Dad needs it too, so he had me get the family pack using his credit card. When I went to college my dad got me a card to use in case of emergencies and I still have it. Yes I do think that iWork '08 is an emergency...plus he told me to use it. ANYWAYS.

To get to the Apple store at Oakbrook, we always choose to walk through Crate & Barrel. I can't express how much I love that store. We walked around in the kitchen department and just would pick something up and look at it and ooh and ahh and put it down. I said we were putting our scent on everything and Jason said, "Maybe I should start peeing all over the place to mark our territory". We wonder what it's going to be like to walk through Crate & Barrel and not just wipe the drool that leaked out of our mouths but actually be able to buy those super cute dish towels.

We headed to the Apple store and I found exactly what I needed and then because it was there, played with the iPhone. Which is awesome. I couldn't believe how easy it was to navigate through the menus and I didn't think that the keyboard was hard to use at all. I didn't play with it at all but didn't seem too bad to me. Damn you Sprint for you and your stupid 2 year contracts. Oh summer of '08 how I can't wait for your arrival.

We decided to wait to run until it "cooled off". So when we went it was 87 degrees instead of 92 degrees. Blah. We had 8 miles, but cut it off at 7 and walked the last mile home. I want to kick the V02 Max today and don't want to do it on super tired dehydrated legs.

Oh and the Cubs beat the Brew Crew....looks like it's going to go right down to the wire, now if the Redbirds would just start loosing we would be all set.

Kudos to you two! I took one step outside my office last night and said, "no thanks" to running! I wish I could muster that type of dedication!

I LOVE Crate & Barrel too. Except I've never been in the store...I just drool all over the catalog everytime they send me one. Which is way too often.

How great was that game last night? I went, and it was so hot, I actually felt myself melt a little. Still, it was worth it when we finally started swinging some bats ;)
