New Watch for my Birthday

With part of my birthday money from last week, I decided to buy a new watch.  I really like the large leather cuff style bands and I came across an online company, Nemesis, that makes watches with interchangeable bands.  They are really nice quality and I ordered this watch and an additional band.  They arrived 5 days later and I love them.  They have both men's and women's watches at very reasonable prices.  Check'em out!

Fire Breathing Ninjas!

 I registered for my first 5k obstacle course!  It also happens to be my first 5k.  The Austin 5k Foam Fest is this October and I will be running.  I am also cajoling several of my friends into running with me as a team.  I came up with the best name ever: Fire-Breathing Ninjas!  I tried google searching the name to find some good pics to go with the info and, would you believe, there are very few fire-breathing ninjas out there??  So I found a website that gave instructions on how to draw them with Adobe Illustrator.  Using the instructions I found on Blog Spoon Graphics, a free trial version of Adobe Illustrator, and ZERO experience with any of the above, I came up with this:
Dang it!  He looks great on a white background.  On the black, not so good.
I am pretty proud of the little guy!  Behold the Fire-Breathing Ninja of Doom!  Now, I just have to get him on a T-shirt for the race... oh, and keep training.  I am down 32 lbs. and I am able to jog 2 miles in 25 minutes.  I can get there by October...
