OH EM GEE TV

Alright‚Ķ I admit it. I’ve been pretty blog-lazy lately. BUT it’s probably because I’ve been watching:

This…

Scandal on ABC

This..

Homeland on SHO

and…

House of Lies on SHO

These peeps have been entertaining me and also keeping me away from updating you. I’m pretty much caught up (and Ms. Rhimes has once again turned my world upside down in the last 3 minutes of the the Dec. 12th episode) so I’m back on here.

At the moment there’s a marathon in Dubai & team triathlon in Abu Dhabi¬†on the horizon for next year. Will keep you posted on training as things progress.

In the mean time, check out those shows on Hulu Plus and SHO if you to wish to be entertained.

ETT out!

ETT Dabbles in Underground Dining?

20121101-141935.jpg

Maybe underground dining is over-exaggerating my intentions a bit, but as I sit here planning all the fun stuff I can do with my shipment from China (whenever it shows up)… I feel the urge to entertain my newfound peeps.

What better way to do that than to feed them!?! I’ll call it a Supper Club… because that sounds cool and intimate. AND having a “club” encourages me to become a repeat offender.

What do you think of the idea? Do you host any “clubs?” If so, any suggestions?

Being Back Home…

…has been refreshing to my soul. It’s amazing how I could miss a place so much.

New York City is electric!! Brooklyn fits me like a well-made pair of leather boots! This city is just amazing.

Spotify, An NBA Christmas, and Stiff Joints…

… these things topped the list of thoughts that ran through my head during last night’s 12-miler. Here’s what I was thinking:

  1. SPOTIFY: Anything that has anything to do with music always catches my attention. What can I say… I can’t live without music. That’s the truth and I’m not afraid to say it. [INSERT TANGENT HERE] I once had my car radio stolen (by-product of living in the hood) right before a pre-planned four-hour¬†drive to NYC… it¬†was the longest four hours of ETT’s life, let me tell you. I can’t sing! And¬†I had to sing to myself, out loud… [END OF TANGENT]¬†I digress.¬†I’m sadly not interested in Spotify at all. Why would I want to pay $10/month for streaming¬†audio (that’s possibly not¬†streaming as fast as advertised)¬†when¬†I could just pony up¬†the¬†same amount and¬†support the artists I love by buying their album??? If I’m not guaranteed¬†gapless playback, why bother?¬†Sorry, that’s just how I feel about it. I’m going to continue to buy albums by my favorite artists and those¬†funky newbies until somebody finds a way to give me the same quality¬†while¬†compensating the musicians/artists/engineers/producers/writers/others the way they deserve to be compensated. This took up about 40 minutes of¬†the run… by the way I was listening to Drake’s new album Take Care ‚̧¬†
  2. NBA Christmas: Some people wish for snow and presents… I just want to get some Knicks tickets for me and the fam. I think it would be a very welcome change to the normal holiday schedule of events. No?
  3. Stiff Joints:¬†I’m not talking illegal substance abuse here… it was more like old lady joint pain. I mean, boy was my right ankle killing me. The crazy part was whenever I slowed down, it hurt more. What kind of sick twisted skeletal-sadism is this!?! What do you want from me, right ankle? What you’re telling me is if I run faster you won’t hurt? I oughta kick you in the you know what, you mean little ankle! Yea… I said it!

Do you daydream about randomness when you run? Most times I just focus on the music and my feet.
