5 Sexy Things About Me

>> Tuesday, November 25, 2008

It’s 4 am. I can’t sleep. I just might be up for the day. So I thought I’d share 5 things about me. Oh, and they’re not really “sexy” - I’m just sleep deprived, so leave me alone.

1: I carry way too much crap in my pockets. I washed my jeans this weekend, so I had to empty my pockets. This is what came out:
- 1 pencil
- 3 pens
- 3 Sharpies
- 2 flash drives
- chapstick
- plastic whistle
- checkbook
- wallet
- $8.89 in change (enough to feed a starving child for 5 weeks)

2: I eat Totino’s Pizzas in EXACTLY 32 bites. (My favorite is the sausage or the combo.) I cut the pizza into 8 equal slices. Then I eat each slice like this:
1. Cut off the tip, eat.
2. Cut more off the same end, eat.
3. Cut the remainder in half, eat piece closest to me.
4. Eat remaining bite.

3: For how “techie” I am, I don’t run with an iPod, HR monitor, or GPS. I’m pretty old-school when it comes to some of these things. When I run, I want to be alone with my thoughts, so I just go and run. I don’t need to know my current pace, how many calories my left pinky has burned, how many times I’ve farted in the last mile, how much saliva I’m producing, etc. (that’s all stuff your Garmin can tell you, right?) I run a route that has stoplights every half-mile, so I can (roughly) check my splits. But otherwise, I’m running free. And for how much I rely on my computer, I track all my workouts (swim, bike, run, lift, stretch, etc) on paper. Here’s a week out of my training log from just before my half-ironman a few months back (heavy training):

And here’s last week, with more cross-training than swimming or biking:

4: This is unrelated to me, but have you seen the new “Doritos Collisions?” How sweet is that?!? Two great flavors in one bag! All the “pizza” powder gets on the “ranch” chips and vice versa! It’s heaven! It’s like having late-night sex WHILE watching Conan O’Brien!

5: I’d like to get an M-Dot tattoo, but first I need to get a different tattoo. In case you didn’t know, I’m a photographer and a college photo professor (that’s why I had 3 Sharpies in my pocket in photo #1: students always need to label the CDs they are turning in). I’ve always said that my first tattoo will be the shutter speed dial from my first camera. I still think this would be nerdy cool as my first tattoo:

Call me a geek. I can take it. I know it’s true.

Also, I think a few of us are going to be running the Giving Thanks 5K on Thanksgiving morning around Lake Como here in St. Paul. It’s an easy 5K course, but both races I’ve done on it have eaten me up! We’ll see how this one goes! Happy Thanksgiving (if we don’t talk before Thursday)!!!


Nicole 5:19 AM, November 25, 2008  

Why not get the shutter speed dial as the dot above your M?! I'd bet you'd be the only one with a M-Dot tattoo photographer style...plus it would be a conversational piece...probably at the end of your next race as you run too darn fast to chat with while running...embrace a Garmin...you'll be in love instantly!! :)

Xenia 5:47 AM, November 25, 2008  

I thought I was the only freak who ate things in a specific way. When I eat anything, it has to be consumed in an even number of bites, though I never stipulate an exact number.

Hope you get some rest tonight.

Missy 6:08 AM, November 25, 2008  

OCD, OCD...yeah, we all got a little of it! I couldn't sleep either, blasted!

D10 6:28 AM, November 25, 2008  

I was wondering what was up with the Sharpies. Damn you can fit a lot in your paockets.

Carolina John 6:29 AM, November 25, 2008  

that is some sexy junk. i couldn't sleep either this morning. Have a good holiday!

Renee 7:07 AM, November 25, 2008  

I almost did not click on this post for fear of what pictures might go along with this especially after past pictures of bleeding nips and the licking of watch fungus!

Lisa Slow-n-Steady 7:12 AM, November 25, 2008  

I keep track of my workouts in a handy dandy notebook too!

Viv 7:56 AM, November 25, 2008  

How deep are your pockets on those jeans?!

Tostinos pizza rule. Who can beat 32 bites for a dollar.

Brooke 8:14 AM, November 25, 2008  

Ok...so everything makes sense but the whistle...

Visionbuilder 8:31 AM, November 25, 2008  

The tatoo is for you, get what you want. I thinks the speed dial is a cool idea! What I need is a speed dial for my legs!!

Visionbuilder 8:33 AM, November 25, 2008  

Oh and exactly how does Carolina John know that you have sexy junk?? Not that there's anything wrong with that. Don't ask, don't tell. ;P

Borsch 8:39 AM, November 25, 2008  

You need to empty your pockets more often.

And yes, A Garmin can tell you how much saliva you produce in any given mile. :P

Sara 8:46 AM, November 25, 2008  

Nicole's idea is a great one actually - now that would be cool and different!

Wow you must wear pants with huge ass pockets!

Blyfinn 9:08 AM, November 25, 2008  

Lake Como. Isn't there a free zoo around that area? My wife and I went up there to see a Twins game not long after we were married and I we went to a free zoo. I thought it was called the Como Zoo. Of course I called it the Homo Zoo. So childish.

Jess 9:14 AM, November 25, 2008  

So, this all came out of one pair of jeans? That much change has got to be weighing you down, dude!

duchossois 9:14 AM, November 25, 2008  

I like the idea of a shutter speed dial tat. BTW, I run with a Garmin, but I've disabled the salivameter.

Chad in the Arizona Desert 9:29 AM, November 25, 2008  

Probably best to stick with the M-dot tattoo. The camera one will just confuse the hell out of everyone.

Calyx Meredith 9:37 AM, November 25, 2008  

You do carry a lot of stuff in your pockets but it's all so tame! As a mother of four boys, I was expecting stuff more like the frog skeletons, bug carcasses, D&D miniatures, and fold up frisbees I have to rescue before washing jeans. Sharpies though - can't live without those.

Sam 9:44 AM, November 25, 2008  

Thanks. I can stop thinking about those Doritos.

Eric 10:16 AM, November 25, 2008  

You're gonna through out your back sitting on that wallet.....just like George Costanza.

SJ Goody 10:29 AM, November 25, 2008  

Got what the sharpies are for... but what about the pencil?

Brent Buckner 10:30 AM, November 25, 2008  

It would be even geekier if you tracked your workouts in a lab notebook....

the gazelle 11:16 AM, November 25, 2008  

Love the tattoo ideas (my husband has a compass rose tattooed on his arm, but I think the shutter speed dial is hotter).

Fizzgig 11:23 AM, November 25, 2008  

Ive never seen those doritos. Good thing! I eat pizza in a step by step process as well. Eat cheese. Scrape doughy part with fork and eat. what's left is the dry bottom crust, and top crust, eat that like pizza by hand.

It tastes better when you enjoy each part.

Julianne 11:40 AM, November 25, 2008  

I think it's great that you're still tracking your runs the old fashioned way!
Hope you got more sleep!! Omg, you woke up when I went to bed last night... (1AM PST)

Roo 11:49 AM, November 25, 2008  

Did you have all of that in ONE pair of pants? I thought Jesse was bad! I had to stop doing his laundry because I kept washing stuff.

Glad to see I'm not the only non-techie triathlete at there. Half the time I don't even wear a watch!

tfh 12:19 PM, November 25, 2008  

Love the old school log. The Doritos gross me out a little (NO! I don't like different flavors to touch one another!). Happy Thanksgiving and have fun in the 5k!

Chic Runner 12:53 PM, November 25, 2008  

I like how in the journal it says ate pretty good this week, and then there is a bag of doritos in the same post. we could be the same people... :)

Kaeti 1:20 PM, November 25, 2008  

Aw, my first camera was an AE-1 Program. I think that would be an awesome tattoo.

Darcy Franklin 1:23 PM, November 25, 2008  

No M-dot! If you do, I like the shutter idea as the dot making it clear what your two loves(hobby loves) are. Tattoos should be something really unique to YOU! Mdots are a dime a dozen AND some people have a problem with others having them if they haven't done Hawaii. Its lame really.

Get some sleep. Eat lots of turkey, that should do it.

Charlotte 1:28 PM, November 25, 2008  

Yes, a man who carries a plastic whistle at all times is my definition of sexy. Has anyone notified Brad Pitt?

TrainingtoTri 1:40 PM, November 25, 2008  

I actually think that would be a really cool tattoo!

Glaven Q. Heisenberg 1:41 PM, November 25, 2008  

Hey, Steve! Is that 1 pencil, 3 pens, 3 Sharpies, 2 flash drives, chapstick, a plastic whistle, a checkbook, a wallet & $8.89 in change in your pocket ...

... or are you just happy to see me?

Trishie 2:10 PM, November 25, 2008  

My Garmin also tells me that it loves me.

Those doritos look AMAZING.

Charisa 3:31 PM, November 25, 2008  

oh yah - that WOULD be a kick-A tattoo!

X-Country2 4:30 PM, November 25, 2008  

Excellent idea for a tattoo.

AKA Alice 7:11 PM, November 25, 2008  

The pens and the flash drives were dead giveaways that you're a teacher.

Oh, and Sex and Conan at the same time? That speaks volumes...

Michelle J 8:01 PM, November 25, 2008  

HAHA! Your a crack up!!!

Way too much going on in those jeans of yours though!!! I assume they are not the tight fitting jeans some guys wear!!!

Have a great thanksgiving Steve!! Thanks for all your help!!!

Lucinda 2:14 AM, November 26, 2008  

That's brilliant, I think the tattoo is a great idea, but where would you get it done?

If the tattoo means something to you, who gives a damn what other people think! WHOA.....

I'm remembering back when you posted your naked/blurred ass in a photo and I DID click on it. That was sexy.....

Happy Running, Eating, and Thanksgiving bro!

jen 10:33 AM, November 26, 2008  

I love the camera tattoo idea!

Happy Thanksgiving!

KK 10:59 AM, November 26, 2008  

Ditto to what Jen said-very clever.

However, late night sex while watching Conan O'brien? REALLY?


Smithposts 5:29 PM, November 26, 2008  

Lucky you haven't had a Kramer moment with all that change in your pocket(s). Happy Thanksgiving to you and Pharmie!

Shawn 6:08 PM, November 26, 2008  

I love this list...

As far as I'm concerned geeky = sexy. Especially if you combine it with photography... lol

Sonia 7:37 PM, November 26, 2008  

You had me at Doritos LOL

Big fan here. I think the tattoo idea is very cool and unique! Go for it!!

Rural Girl 9:37 AM, November 27, 2008  

The whistle seems a little strange! But, hey, I forget who I'm dealing with!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your lovely wife. You guys rock!

IronJenny 5:51 PM, November 29, 2008  

That's a lot of stuff!
You need a murse.

Teri Ann 12:29 AM, December 04, 2008  

would you get it tattooed on your taupe knob?!?

trigimper 4:44 AM, December 06, 2008  

Love the shutter speed dial idea. But why not tattoo the whole top plate, though I'll leave it to you to decide the placement for zoom or shutter release...

Post a Comment

Thanks for your comments! Have a great day!
