NYC Gal: Yes, Grace is my middle name.....
I had frozen blueberries on my knee all last night (you are right re it being easier than ice) but there's no way to keep things "cold" here at work (I could do like one 1/2 hr "icing" then that would be it).
HOWEVER -- I'm going to upturn my garbage can right now. Good remembrance re "raising" it.
The funniest part of the run (I was just telling another friend about this) was the "chute" down to the photos. We'd just come off the Bridge, and my wonderful boyfriend is not usually one to "think" about things like photo ops. But as we were coming toward it, he started "re-arranging" my hair -- and I realized that the wind had probably picked it up and completely Medusa-ized me (I gotta remember to run in a hat). 3 of us ran toward the photo together (I actually hope it's a good shot) and the funniest bit was that we all took our glasses off and BEAMED for the camera. The shot was in the redwood grove, and (tho I didn't turn around -- we all KNOW how GRACEFUL I am *smile*), I have this feeling that it has the span of the Bridge behind our heads, thru the redwoods. So anyway -- it was like a choreographed maneuver out of something like L.A. Story -- we all take our glasses off, BEAM at the camera, click click whirr whirr, off thru the chute, and we all, as if synchronized, shove our glasses back on and push them on to the bridge of our noses with our middle fingers. I was slightly behind my boyfriend and my other friend (we were abreast), and just seeing it happen out of the corner of my eye cracked me up. Looked like something out of "Men in Black", where Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith have those dark glasses, etc.??
(Maybe you had to be there....?)
