I had a fun day off on Thursday... I finally packed up my winter clothes and got my summer ones out of storage... I fully expected to wake up to snow on Friday.. but I guess I waited long enough! I also painted my toes... notice I said toes... I painted the toenails I have left & my nail-less toes and made it look like I still have all 10! I can wear flipflops now! My life is so exciting.

Okay, your fanclub is dying to know...what happened to your toenails?! Were they removed when you were a POW in 'Nam? Cause that would make you even awesomer!

Aw damn, now the pressure is on to come up with a better story than just for me lots of running on trails equals blisters under the toenails which equals blackening and then loss of said toenails. There's an ultraunner who had all his toenails permently removed 'cause they bothered him so much!! Now that's freakin' hardcore!

HOLY SHIT!!!

Your toenails are falling off because of all your running on trails?! You somewhat left that part out when you were describing it as "fun and exciting!" Which makes me wonder what other side effects you're not telling us?

"Oh, this hump on my back? That's just because all the running on trails knocks my spine off balance and punctures my skin. But don't worry, with some nail polish added, you can't tell the difference."
