1 cadbury cream egg + 3 glasses of chardonnay + a handfull of jellybeans + black box’s “everybody” dance tune + dancing around in scrubs, a dirty t-shirt and a winter knit cap + no lights on in the apt + all of the cutting of work hours + way too much thinking about a long lost love = letting loose despite all of the fucken shit going on in the world this particular day…

franny lets loose. because. there is no other way to survive the shit. you just have to dance it all out.

i’m drunk, don’t care, just dance…

keep on keepin’ on…

so, it’s saturday night. i’m freakin’ tired. busy day at work. tried to watch a movie…then a tv show…half fell asleep. logged off the computer and then remembered that i’d borrowed a cd…

music to add to the iPod…

from the very best of Gladys Knight and the Pips.
-i heard it through the grapevine (kick ass)
-neither one of us (wants to be the first to say goodbye)
-midnight train to georgia
-i’ve got to use my imagination
-best thing that ever happened to me


shit. what a set of pipes this woman has.

additional additions to the iPod:
-Bill Withers & Grover Washington Jr. – just the two of us
-Mary J Blige – work that
– ” ” – – just fine
– ” ” – ’til the morning
-Bjork – pagan poetry
-David Bowie – moonage daydream
-Bach: Brandenburg Concerto #5 In D- 1. Allegro 10:40 Benjamin Britten: English Chamber Orchestra


how’s that for a mix?!
okay. so i should head to bed. tired. a little sore. but i have to listen to…

Thank you for your interest in the ING New York City Marathon 2010, and best of luck.

i’ll be running 26.2 miles November 7th at the age of 44. my glutes hurt, my knees grind when i walk up the steps, my hammies are perpetually sore, it takes me 2 miles to warm up…

i’m not what i was at 39. but, i feel, better prepared mentally. i know what to expect. i know that half the battle is psychological. i know when to slow down and speed up.

went for a short run yesterday evening. it was friggin’ cold. but i did it anyway.

why am i doing it? why is it that i want to subject myself to achieving what will be a difficult feat?
1. to prove that age is just a number
2. to get myself really fit and strong
3. for the bragging rights

to inspire the little girls walking with their moms, the high school girls walking home from school, the older woman who’s eyes light up with possibility…when i whizz by them in my asics and reebok running pants…
you don’t have to run, but you should always strive to fly…

just franny’s opinion, but this here lady kicks ass, has been for a long while. she hooked me with her “what’s the 411 album”…
this song is entitled, “Just Fine” and it helps me move my ass at the gym on the eliptical trainer…thank you for the positivity, Mary J. you rock.

beyonce is way overrated.
