ARCHIVES ~ hold the Anchovies!February 2008
It has been awhile since I have written an entry. I must say that my life has changed super dramatically since the last time that I typed away on this page. Things that are the same: I still enjoy running, I work at the same company, I drive the same car, I still find myself most happy when motivating others. Things that have changed: Momma Aguirre past away last year on May 9th. No stinkin' thinkin' is what I remember most about my mom. She was and still is a true inspiration and gives me motivation every single day. My sister gave birth to a beautiful baby boy - Caleb William Degnan-Aguirre. He is an awesome nephew and I love him O'LOT! I am now living with the super fantastic Stepheroonie in Marina del Rey. I enjoy living in our new place, it feels more like home. Another huge decision that I made was to separate from Mr. Woods. I reevaluated our relationship and realized that I was unhappy. New adventures are on the horizon for 2009. I have met some great people and look forward to fun times ahead. Speaking of fun times, let's take a glance at what we can look forward to in 2009:
Miami: May 13-17th for Badonka's and Ernie's 30th Birthday Extravaganza!
Hollywood Bowl Summer Concert Series - Summer2009
Camp Pendleton Mud Run - June 13th, Go SEXY SUCIOS!
Nike Women's Full Marathon - October 18th in San Francisco

March 21, 2008: Something in Spanish
Opening the season is Brooklyn-based threesome Something in Spanish. This avant-pop band fuses elements of experimental free jazz, '50s pop, and electro-chill. Leave it to songbird Michelle Perez, jazz cat Jules Monterey, and visual artist Ari Kuschnir to effortlessly blend ear-popping beats with eye-popping visuals. Something in Spanish offers a little something for everyone—from straight-up rump-shakin' dance music to relaxing melodies you can chill to. It's a whole lotta show with a tinge of glow. LINK

[Airborne said that a double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted with “care and professionalism” by a company specializing in clinical trial management, GNG Pharmaceutical Services.
GNG is actually a two-man operation started up just to do the Airborne study. There was no clinic, no scientists and no doctors. The man who ran things said he had lots of clinical trial experience. He added that he had a degree from Indiana University, but the school says he never graduated. ]
Still want some more --> LINK
