Yes, more search engine stuff. This is quickly becoming my favorite game. Actually, my favorite game is Feeding Frenzy, this ridiculously simple freebie on Xbox. You’re this little fish, and you swim around and eat other fish. When you eat enough little fish, you get big enough to eat bigger fish. Oh no, watch out for the barracuda!
It’s ok. You can laugh. I like my game. Watching the cat follow the fish around the screen adds to the entertainment value as well. Anyway. Because Scott is using the Xbox, I’ll settle for my second favorite game: SEARCH ENGINE FRENZY!
Out of the Internet grab bag this week…
- “nike sportband sucks”
Ah…I wondered. I wrote about the sportband’s debut, but despite my not-so-subtle hinting one never magically appeared on my doorstep for me to test and review. Now we know: someone out there in the great unknown doesn’t like their sportband. 😦
- “nike sportband hid”
Ooh, this is frustrating. I have a tendency to hide my watch from myself. There was a time when I had the alarm set for 2:30pm every day…that way, I could ferret out its hiding place before track practice. How do you lose a watch in a one-bedroom apartment? An obsessively clean one-bedroom apartment? It is a gift, my friend. A strange and unexplainable gift. If you’ve hidden your sportband from yourself, however, I’m not sure if that method will help you. If it was me, it’d somehow have found its way into an unused pair of shoes, into the refrigerator, or underneath the bed. I’d start the search there.
- “running lack of motivation”
You’re not alone. I was there about a month ago, although the impending (I hope) end of summer and a training plan have helped me claw my way out of a slump. Fellow GTC blogger Flemming also suggests a training plan as a way to avoid a runless rut. Good luck! Wait a minute…Running Buddy? Is that you? Tehe.
- “olympics fencing scream”
Tehe. Hope you enjoyed the video from the “Things I Don’t Understand About Other Sports” post.
- “calories burned aqua jogging”
I still decline to answer this one. It’s not comforting.
- “how to think deep thoughts”
Thinking about how to think deep thoughts may actually be the way to think deep thoughts…ow. Headache. Nevermind.
- “megans list”
I’m a Megan. Here’s a list: stop sign, dingo, wedding, macaroni, cat, Strong Bad, printer, game. (Technically, I guess this is a list within a list. A limited time, two-for-one offer!)
- “nano nike+ different shoes”
You don’t actually have to buy the nike+ shoes to use the nike+ system. I like Adidas shoes, so I opted to velcro my nike+ sensor to the tongue of my left shoe. Then, I laced my shoe over the sensor to backup the velcro. I can remove the sensor if I need to, and it’s accurate and comfortable. I’ve had the nike+ system for over a year now and haven’t had any problems. If you like Nike shoes, however, there are more and more nike+ options these days. Here’s a link to all the options at the Nike store.
- “what is fartliking”
I really hope that’s “fartlek” spelled wrong. (If it is, and you’d like to know, please see the first post on the blog.) Really, really, really. Because I’m not liking the alternative.
- “paris mountain 6k trail run results”
I feel guilty that I talked about the race and didn’t link to the results. Actually, I do that a lot, which is silly. I’ll try to be better about that. For future reference, if you run a race in the Greenville area the best place to look for results is the Greenville Track Club’s website.
