Marathon Mayor

Early this morning, I made my way to Griffith Park for my second week of marathon training with Team 2 End AIDS. As you may recall, I started my marathon training last week so I’m off and, um, running. This week’s training run was a pretty easy 3 miles … which, I have to say, is very cool because I never in my wildest dreams thought running 3 miles would be “easy”. As my milage increases, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 miles will be easy runs. And that is something I am very much looking forward to. More »

Watch: The New ‘Ted’ Featurette Is Sooo NSFW

n the video which are you are about to experience (far, far away from bosses, children, and women who take serious pride in their Boston heritage), there are things so ridiculously funny, I am no longer embarrassed to admit that I plan to see this movie. Seth MacFarlane, Family Guy creator and director of Ted, describes his debut film as, “A warm, fuzzy, heart-felt, f***ed up fairy tale.” Based on what I just watched, that sounds entirely accurate. Bad words and boobies inside.

Fun fact: Halle and I were pregnancy buddies. Well, you know what I mean. We were prego at the same time, so we were pregnancy buddies (in my fantasy world).
