I'm still here, pony friends. :) I'm training for my first 5K race, the Dexter-Ann Arbor Run, and am really pressing myself through April to know I'm ready to do this. I've been hard at work to "become a runner," you might say, for a while now, but this winter I became very serious about the whole fandango. So there's been a bunch of days where I could have done a blog entry, but knew I needed to lace up the shoes and turn on the P90X; at the moment that comes first. I still also need to figure out a streamlined way to do entries because I just have so. many. props. Boxes and bins of pony playsets and accessories from just about everything you can think of to back the entries up. Finding one particular thing, despite micromanaging the whole mess with 8,000 sandwich bags, is like trying to find the one black cat with a white spot on its belly in a swimming pool filled with cats. I need to invite Anthony Bourdain over..make up some thing about eating plastic pony accessories being a Michigan delicacy just to filter out some of the duplicate stuff.
I'm looking at doing a Mother's Day-themed photo contest to give away a Newborn, but I'm looking for ideas that aren't the usual "Why I love my Mom" thing. Thoughts? I know a lot of us out there don't have super-duper relationships with our moms, so I don't want anyone feeling left out. Bohemian from MLP Arena had some great ideas...either "What did you want to be as a kid?" or "What trouble did you get into as a kid?" Sounds good, eh? I'm looking to be giving away a Tumbleweed Newborn Twin this time...excited about that because I know Milkweed & Tumbleweed are a popular pair. Believe me, I am keeping my eyes out for some bigtime ponies to give away as time goes by. I wonder how many entries I'd get if Mimic was the prize? ;)
I just wanted to stop in and say hi to my pony peeps. Don't forget to use your MLP coupons that came in the USA Sunday paper coupons last week! Are you scouring the stores waiting for new pony singles to come out like I am? :P
