"Bloop" .... pronounced like "shook", "hook", "book" .... now say to again ..... bloop.

Bloop is the sounds chilli makes while in the pot ... at least the way I make it ........ I concoct a large vat of brown pastey dense liquid complete with a handful of my home grown chillies ...... as the pot sits under the burner the surface starts to breath ...... eventually the diaphram of the surface receeds like a fast moving tide and erupts back up like a large mud bubble from a thermal spa and goes bloop!

Soon after the first bloop I put the lid on ..... and wipe down the walls, the bench tops and the inquisitive dog. Blooping is messy business.

And with all that said I have introduced you to the subject of Sports Nutrition leading up to a marathon ........

One must make sacrifices to be a fine tuned athlete, and so here is mine .......

Yes indeed the switch to low carb beer. Every extra pound is crutial on the big day and carbo loading is not due until the last 48 hours.

Monday morning there was something of a rumbling and pressure down below, if you know what I mean ......

Could have been the chilli .......... or the beer ...... or the dried fruit ........ perhaps even the licorice .......... or the chilli salami ....... well you see folks I am not prepared to be sitting back and relaxing just because it's taper week ..... I still like to challenge myself ....... stand back!

I think I'm glad I can't run with you this weekend.

I can recommend the cap down the back of your shorts. Can cover a multitude of sins.

Nothing wrong with pure blonde. How do you think my kids got the blonde hair?

Tesso is funny - I'm glad I can't run with you either . . . bloop sounds scary to me! Does Hatetoast partake too?

IHateToast had to run home from the market and was fighting down the rising hotdog. Hard to really enjoy the run when food wants to return. Must rethink the market eating plan this sunday.
IHateToasts also really likes his antics. ilike has learned to do some high kick and toot at the same time, causing IHate to bust a gut laughing. I'm really not training him well. But after teaching 4th graders for 5 years, I've learned that farts really are funny....if they're loud...that silent/deadly stuff jus' aint raht!

I recommend solo running for the next few days - be kind to your fellow runners IlikeToast. Funky tights by the way and happy bday to your daughter!
