Certainly you all remember sweet little Penelope.  My adorable little drunk kitten?

Perhaps she started out too young...

Well, apparently, Penelope has reached all new levels of drunkeness and is passing out in rather inappropriate places.  I have found her in my towel drawer and on the printer.  She's constantly on random shelves, in the bathtub, and sometimes can only make it halfway up the stairs to her cat house.  

But these new antics of hers?  Well, things are getting a little bit ridiculous.  

Yesterday, while sitting at my dining room table having a coffee, I watched Penelope pass out on the sidewalk.  This was not unusual behavior.  Sometimes it's hard to make it all the way home and one just needs a little rest.  But yesterday.....yesterday Penelope clearly had over done it.  An elderly gentleman was out for his daily stroll with his walker and came to a stop right in front of my house.  I look out to see what the problem was and it seemed that something was in his way: Penelope.  He tried to proceed in hopes that she would relocate her feline self, but had no such luck.  He tried gently coaxing her to move, and then he tried raising his voice.  And then...then he gave up and ran into her.  That's right, he ran into my cat.  I couldn't help but laugh as I watched the confusion on his face and heard the oh so appropriate words "well, I never" come from him.  He put the brakes on his walker and slowly moved around it to pick up Penelope.  I expected him to just throw her towards our door as an act of kindness to help her home, but instead he placed her on the seat of his walker and then carried on with his stroll.  I'm not too sure how far Penelope made it before she realized that she was moving further from home, but I found her back in her drunk position only a few minutes later.

Which way is home?

And...passed out again.

Later on the evening while my husband and I were out doing some yard work, we heard a truck honking on the street.  I went to see what was going on, and there was Penelope, yet again, passed out on the street.  I had to walk over and pick her up so the truck could proceed.  Seriously, how is this cat still alive????

Drunken Jenga

My husband and I are avid game players, as well as avid drinkers.  What could possibly be better than turning Jenga into a drinking game?

Making the game takes a little bit of time.  Each block needs an instruction.  The rules below allow for 3 blocks of each rule, with 3 blank blocks.  You can leave the last 3 blank, pick your 3 favorite rules to use again, or make up 3 completely random rules!  Try to use a permanent pen that doesn't bleed too much.  Write in large block letters.  Once you have the blocks all written out, you're ready for Drunken Jenga! 

Rules of Drunken Jenga


Boo!  I'm back.  
I've been a little MIA.  My stupid depression hit crazy hard this summer and it took me quite a while to get it under control.  I'm finally getting my shit together after figuring out a few things that I need to do to simplify some of the things in my life.  Things are going much better now!  I have a few appointments coming up to help determine what I can do to get this under control more long term.  Oh....the battle....
So, one of the things that I decided to do make life simpler was to only focus on this one blog: The Drunk Runner.  I really don't have the time or desire anymore to have 4 different blogs running with 4 different topics, so now you're going to get them all here!  Yay for you!  Most of my content on my other "blogs" is rather pointless and contains a lot of venting, but some of them are rather funny.  While going through them, I came across this and thought I would share it with you.  I had started a blog to rant about my…

Positivity, People.

Yesterday, a fitness account that I follow on Twitter posted this picture and I had retweeted it.  I've seen this picture a few times before and I really didn't think too much of it until I noticed today that a friend of mine had commented on it.  Her reply was "Nice use of shaming. I give it an A plus in ignorance. Working out does not always equal being fit and vice versa."  Based on this comment, I started a couple heated discussion in regards to this picture and the message that it is suggesting.To me, this picture says “ if you aren’t willing to put in the effort, then you don’t deserve the results” (which I believe to be 100% true), but to others it seems to have a much more negative message.
