Triple Tangent Tuesday (two days late).

October 13, 2011

We did it…

The sis and I purchased our tickets for NEW YORK CITY.  We will be there from Nov. 3 to Nov. 7.

IMG 4281

(I thought a picture of us doing our superman flying trick was fitting for the topic).

Billy couldn’t miss school because I guess law schools look at your GPA or something when you apply so he couldn’t afford to miss school.  The sissy kindly offered to come in his place and spend her weekend shopping, eating, running around the city with me.

Anyone want to MEET-UP?  I want to start planning something ASAP so please let me know if you are interested in doing anything or if there is anything already planned!!

—————————————————————

In other (just as exciting news) I got my favorite kind of email this morning.

‘Treats in the faculty lounge:  First come, first served.’  I ran, fast.  Guess who was first?

I am probably the last person on the earth to know about this miraculous cookie but it only contains 3 ingredients. Pumpkin, spice cake mix (okay, there are actually a trillion ingredients in that) and chocolate chips.

She even knew the importance of adding 48 chocolate chips per cookie.  I like her.

PS I put that apple in the picture to show you that students really do bring their teachers apples.  Reason #4 that I became a teacher.

————————————————————

I found this picture the other day.  I am pretty sure that I do the exact same facial expression that I did when I was 6 years old in 98% of the pictures that have been on the blog.  I haven’t changed a thing.

Tell ME some tangents!!!!

Are you going to be in NYC for the marathon or do you already live there and want to meet-up?  TELL ME.

What was the last cookie that you ate?

Do you like traveling on airplanes?   How long was your longest flight?

-I actually love flying: Movies, snacks, magazines and orange juice, yes please.  Six hours was the longest flight I have ever been on.

Carrie October 13, 2011 at 3:31 pm

Yes!! I have been following you from Brisbane, Australia, the last few months, and I would LOVEEE to meet up with you and other hungry-icecream-eating runners. I’m flying home to Texas tomorrow from OZ and am running the NYC Marathon in a few weeks…cannot wait!!!! Keep me posted. My mom and I arrive in NYC on Friday and will probably hit up the expo on Friday. The countdown is on!!

Janae October 14, 2011 at 8:22 am

YES YES YES!!! I can’t wait to meet you!! I am thinking that we will plan a Saturday afternoon meet-up….fro-yo?!?!

Carrie October 15, 2011 at 10:19 pm

I just made it home to Houston tonight from down unda’! Long flight but lots of snacks along the journey:) I can’t wait to OD on peanut-butter m&ms and fro-yo and tex-mex during my time back home. :)

Saturday fro-yo group date in NYC sounds awesome- keep me posted! Also, what color/corral are you in? I’m Blue-24. Congrats on your long run- you rock, woman!! Cannot wait to meet you in NYC!!!

I love flying bc it means I’m going somewhere but I hate when the plane lands. Right now I’m actually flying to Alaska…but my lOnfest flight was to Rome!!!

I’m so excited that you’re oficiallt going to NY!!

Courtney October 13, 2011 at 3:48 pm

I make those cookies ALL the time and they are so delicious. You can use carrot cake mix too and add cream cheese icing on top:) During seasons other than fall, you can use devils food cake mix and you can’t even taste the pumpkin!

Janae October 14, 2011 at 8:23 am

Carrot cake mix and devils food…YOU ARE BRILLIANT!

Reply

Carrie October 13, 2011 at 3:49 pm

And longest flight is 16 hours down unda to Oz:) Doing it tomorrow…the jet lag is crazy! I do love the part about snacks, movies, and mags though…and people-watching at airports:)

Erin Masihdas October 13, 2011 at 3:52 pm

I flew to India last year. 14 hours on an airplane!!! FAR too long. Thank goodness for Ambien! :)

I live in NYC so I’m definitely up for meeting up!! I’m not running the marathon this year-hopefully next year!!!

Reply

Janae October 14, 2011 at 8:24 am

14 hours….HOLY COW!!! AHHHH YAY….does Saturday afternoon work for you…I am thinking fro-yo:) Do you know of a place that is close to the expo area or somewhere that is easy for everyone to get to?

Reply

Jacqueline October 13, 2011 at 3:56 pm

my longest flight was 18 hours. when we lived in connecticut we were flying home from utah (for christmas) and the jfk airport was closed because of snow so we got stuck in the san francisco airport for 18 hours. dont ask me why we ended up in san francisco, but if you are ever lost in the san francisco airport call me, i still remember every single thing about the blasted place. that’s exciting about new york, do you have to take it easy with your legs or are you gonna blow everyone away? thanks for reminding me about those cookies, i think i still have some from last year lingering on my thighs. :] good luck!

Reply

Janae October 14, 2011 at 8:24 am

18 hours….HOLY COW!!! That is crazy. I bet you have that place memorized ha. HOW ARE YOU by the way?!?! I am taking it super easy in NY, I just want to finish:)

Maribeth @LOVEmyHANDLES October 13, 2011 at 3:58 pm

YAY for NYC Marathon! I am going to try to qualify to run it in 2013 with the 9+1.

You’re going to have so much fun. I live and go to school in NYC! It’s an amazing city.. When I read your blog I think you’re like a friend in my head(as Wendy Williams says). I feel like you’d just be way too cool for me if we met up. I’m the lame lol.

You should definitely go to levain bakery or milk bar for cookies! One is the size of your head and the other is the most buttery goodness!!!!!! Lots of great holes in the wall for reasonable prices in the village and lower east side. Not sure where you’re staying

Have a great race!

Reply

Janae October 14, 2011 at 8:27 am

WHATEVER….we BETTER MEET UP because we ARE FRIENDS already. Are you free the Saturday afternoon before the race? Okay, I NEED to go to that bakery…you are going to have to show me where it is! We aren’t sure where we are staying either…oops.

Sarah Kramer October 13, 2011 at 4:00 pm

You should drop by Pennsylvania and see me!! We don’t have a Cafe Rio, but it’s a similar place :) Plus, my family keeps tons of ice cream stocked! Haha. I hope you and your sister have an awesome trip. I always like hanging out and traveling with my sister!

Heather@The World Through My Eyes October 13, 2011 at 4:02 pm

I just found some Girl Scout cookies in my freezer last night–frozen thin mints! Score!!!!!

Longest time on an actual airplane was my flight from New York to Cairo. I think it was like 11 hours straight or something absurd! I watched every movie they had!!

Jenny Finnegan October 13, 2011 at 4:06 pm

I don’t live in the city, but I will drive down from Upstate to meet you!!!
:) Please keep me posted on where/when!
The last cookie I ate was a Joe-Joe from Trader Joe’s!
My longest flight was 10 or 12 hours, can’t remember. It felt like forever!

Lindsey October 13, 2011 at 4:22 pm

Yay! Have LOTS of fun in NY, I am jealous ;) I have never been!
The last cookie I ate…. was last Tuesday, for staff treat day at work a co-worker brought in walnut shortbread cookies they were so good!
I don’t mind flying but don’t love it either, longest flight was 10-11 hours to Europe when I was in high school for a exchange trip.

Erica October 13, 2011 at 4:39 pm

Yeah, the similarities continue. I love flying!!!!! It’s like being told you have to sit, eat, and watch movies for hours……..yes please. Longest continual flight was to France, but longest flying day with all the stops was Hawaii.

A girls trip to NYC. I’d say that almost trumps going with the hubby, no offense Billy.

Reply

Janae October 14, 2011 at 8:30 am

All of the stops are ANNOYING when it comes to flying, I would rather just stay in the plane ya know:) You are right…..girls trip is the best, WANNA COME?

Reply

Brittany October 13, 2011 at 4:47 pm

Use to love the chewy, gooey, chocolatey, peanutbutter cookies, m&m all microwaveddd or sandwiched with vanilla ice cream…but now I am so into iced shortbread. Love the color, designs, shapes..haha maybe thats why I have a MARKETING DEGREE? So last cookie I had was an owl shortbread from Canada.

Loveee to fly….people watching and the random airmagazines heaven. Longest flight was 13 hours..LA to Australia.

Janae October 14, 2011 at 8:31 am

13 hours…HOLY COW!!! You are so right…People watching is the BEST! Your cookie description made me drool.

JANAEEEE seriously??? I’m in NYC until the 30th of October so we JUST MISS each other. Boo. I guess it will have to wait until I come to Utah :)

It took over 9 hours for me to get to Hawaii last year! There was a little stop over in British Columbia though. Still a really long flight!

Hmm- I can’t remember the last cookie I ate! So sad :(.

I flew to Singapore when I was 18. I think it was about 16 hours actually in a plane. About 22 hours total travel time including layovers in LA and Tokyo!

I’m so excited to hear about NY! Someday I will run it!

Reply

Christina October 13, 2011 at 5:02 pm

The last cookie I ate was a Grandma’s chocolate chip cookie. I think it was old because it was really crumbly.

My longest flight was from LAX to Australia–14 hours.

I am running NYC! I am from there but live in Wyoming now. We are flowing out of SLC on Nov. 3 and coming home on Monday night. My parents live in NY (on Long Island) but we are staying in the city Saturday through Monday night. I’d love to meet up! :)

Janae October 14, 2011 at 8:38 am

AHHHH WAHOO!!!! Who are you flying with? I will be on South West…how cool would that be if we were on the same flight? Could you meet Saturday afternoon for froyo?

Erik Ammon October 13, 2011 at 5:12 pm

That’s one scary face. I hope I never see it in my classroom!!
Last cookie? I don’t remember. It’s been 4+ years since I’ve had one
Longest flight? China (twice) was about 21 hours or so. We’re heading back in a few more years!!!

My longest flight (I’ve actually done this trip 4 times) is a total of 26 hours including layovers for a couple hours in Bangkok. From Sydney, Australia to London England!! It’s such a long haul flight!
So happy to hear you and your Sis are going to have heaps of fun in NY.
The last cookie i ate… is it bad that I don’t even remember? I’m not a cookie person. Although I think we can class biscuits as cookies? If that’s the equivalent? I’m not entirely sure! If so, my last biscuit was a dark chocolate Tim tam. A very Australian biscuit! Have you ever had them? Google them and check out the flavours! I’m happy to hook you up with some Aussie biscuits + lollies if you want to try anything in particular :) Just throw me an email.
Have a great day :D

Yay NYC!!

Just curious about a couple of things. Aren’t you worried about injury? Seems like you have ramped up your long runs too fast. Be careful!!

Also, how does your sister seem o have so much free time without the kids? I have two kids myself and rarely get to go to the gym without them or on dinner dates, etc. Where is her husband? He is never mentioned. Sorry to be nosy, just wondered!

Keep being awesome!

Reply

Janae October 14, 2011 at 8:39 am

I am not worried about injury….I am run/walking the marathon and if something feels off I will stop and hop off the course. I have been following the schedule that my sports medicine doctor gave me and he says I will be fine:) Have a great day!

I like flights and the longest I’ve flown is about 6 hours. Although when I went to Phoenix for work in July I got SO motion sick I thought I was going to lose it, and it lasted for about 30 minutes after the flight. I think it was the Luna bar I had waiting for the plane but still…

yes! let me know if you guys plan anything in new york. i’m flying out tomorrow to run the san fransisco nike women’s marathon, but i should probably be back to prime fro-yo eating shape when you’re here. i might be out of town for a wedding, but i’ll see when you guys end up meeting

but regardless, you should note that nyc has “16 handles,” which is suspiciously similar to yogurtland. i go to the one in the upper east side on 2nd avenue and 82nd street, but they have them throughout the city.. http://16handles.com/

Longest flight was from Dallas to Hawaii. I was so excited to be going to Hawaii I could have read Moby Dick the entire time and still enjoyed the flight.
Flying did not bother me until I had a slightly traumatic experience (for me). I was flying to see a friend, the flight was delayed for four hours, and when the flight finally took off there was the smell of smoke/fire in the cabin. They had to turn the plane around and we could see fire engines on the ground as we landed. Let’s just day for my last flight I had my doctor prescribe me some Valium.
Have fun in New York!

Last cookie: chocolate chip I think.
NYC: I have never lived there but I traveled there quite a bit for work over a 3 yr period. I spent about 48 weeks a yr there from Tues-Thurs each week. I LOVE NYC. You have to seek out the soup dumplings in Chinatown.

Here is a tangent; Billy must be a genius if this works because now I can comment on your blog again!

The last cookie I ate was an oreo; oreos are made of heaven (and fat) but more importantly made of heaven.

Six hours is my longest flight too; Utah to Hawaii and for some reason I made the stupid choice to fly the red eye home. Sleeping on an airplane = me no likey

I couldn’t tell you the last time I ate a cookie :(

But I will tell you that THE BEST cookie I have ever had was in NYC at Levain Bakery (levainbakery.com). They’re 2 1/2 inches thick in the middle, LOADED with chocolate chips, and I might have had sweet sweet dreams about them. You HAVE to go while you’re there.

I just looked up their website. My sis and I are going to die eating their 2.5 inches thick of heaven cookies. You are the BEST!

Yeah for New York. I have ALWAYS wanted to go there. Take a ton of pics, please!
I love those pumpkin spice cookies. So quick and easy. I love them with white chocolate chips too. Yummy!
I’ve flown 9 hours several times. For someone as antsy as I am, it was so hard, especially since I can’t sleep on planes. I’m not a good flier. I freak out at every jostle. I’m surprised I haven’t left fingernail scars on my husbands hands from gripping them so hard.

I am so glad to hear that you and your sister are going to NYC! I love that town, even though when it comes to USA I am a west coast girl at heart.
With my beloved living on your shores and me over here in Australia, I have to like flying otherwise it would be rather difficult! I usually just get lots of magazines, books and load my iPod up with music and podcasts and pray that I have enough things to entertain myself for the flight. Probably the longest flight I’ve been on was when I cam back from Rome to Brisbane, Australia last year. I flew from Rome to Dubai then Dubai to Brisbane. I think it was about 20 hours all up plus layover?! That’s okay thought, the holiday was more than worth it!
I hope you get to meet up with some people :)

Also devastated that I can’t spectate at the race. I had grand plans to make an awesome sign and cheer on all the amazing athletes including your fine self.

Promise you’ll come back next year?

I don’t mind flying but I have only taken short trips. It’s a good thing to because I have an issue with trying to use a bathroom while something is moving…it’s just not normal to me.

This is one of my favorite fro-yo places and they have a couple locations in the city!! http://16handles.com/

I’m happy for you that you are healthy enough to go run and experience NYC. Soak it all in and have lots of fun.

From what I’ve heard, you’re going to end up waiting around on Staten Island for at the start / staging area for a LONG time on race morning. Take hothands and lots of warm clothes!

I was just reading about the NYC marathon in Runner’s World yesterday! & I did that speech in my Communications class about it. I LOVE THE NYC MARATHON. I will run it one day – promise. Until then, I am so jealous I could throw my gummy bears at you- wait, that would be too much fun…..

Does Ritz crackers with PB & J stacked on top count?? I am obsessed with it. I’ve been eating that day in & day out. Went through a box of crackers in 2 days.

Heaven help my love handles.
