I get distracted sometimes, but there’s still hope for me yet

Oops! I completely forgot about

1) posting this week’s blog entry and

2) going to the Pasadena Chalk Festival today.

It didn’t even cross my mind until I saw a photo of an actual sidewalk drawing on Facebook around 5pm. I’ll try to stop by tomorrow and check it out because I remember that I really wanted to go last month, inspired by the 2011 Earth Day Chalk Art Challenge in Redondo Beach.

Guess I’ve been preoccupied with other things this weekend, like meeting the newest member of the family; an 8 week old puppy. He’s a mostly black and little bit white chihuahua poodle mix, named Oreo. In my defense I did not name him that.  Also in my defense that was the big distraction. I now live with a puppy! He’s newspaper trained and mostly sleeps, so I haven’t really done more than walk over to his corner to gawk at him at this point. Photos to come on Flickr later this weekend.

In other news, Summer begins next week here in the northern hemi and I am looking forward to it. I’ve begun biking and swimming weekly, in addition to running, in prep for my triathlon, less than a month away. One more big detail to figure out for that weekend in July and I’ll be all set.

For LA locals, there’s a sponsored (free) screening of Twittamentary on Tues., June 28, in Culver City. See the Eventbrite page for details. If you’re going, I’ll see you there.
