This (mostly) Just In...


Eddie Izzard runs 43 Marathons in 51 Days - In news that makes my hour long walks look downright ridiculous, everyone's favorite cross-dressing comedian ran over a thousand miles through the UK in the past month and a half. Someone's seen Forrest Gump a few too many times.

Re: The Izzard thing. Did he do it in HEELS though? Ha.

I agree too. Reading about his marathons made my attempts to walk an hour a day seem pathetic. Damn him.

43 marathons in 51 days? That is just sick. Seriously, I wouldn't have thought it possible. I wonder if he planted a flag at the end.

And mmm, Guinness. I dutifully went out and got a six-pack of the 250th anniversary brew, and my full report is: Meh. I could hardly tell the difference, and if there was one, it was that it was a little more watery.

I do love me some Guinness. But it's like the Drunk College Girl of beers, in that I don't really care how old it is.
