Tarantism Thursday…

It’s only 10:00 AM and I have already accomplished more today then I usually do before noon. For some reason I woke up at 5:45 AM… this is very unusual for me, I guess its because I passed out on the couch around 11:30 PM last night and my body is incapable of sleeping for more then 4-5 hours. I eventually gave in to the realization that I was not going to fall back asleep and got my ass out of bed. I had to do a 3 mile run today so I decided to get it out of the way before the heat hit … when I started at 8:00 AM it was 75 degrees, I hate heat. I finished 3.10 miles in/37:40 averaging 12:08/mile… not to bad by my standard. Now I have 4 hours with nothing to do before I head to my internship, I’m not used to spare time so I’m not quite sure what to do with myself?! My word for the day is tarantism which means a nervous disorder characterized by an uncontrollable impulse to dance; popularly attributed to bite of the southern European tarantula or wolf spider. I find myself often with a uncontrollable urge to dance at the supermarket, when I’m running, walking to my car, sitting in class, maybe I was bit by a spider? Just looking at that picture makes me shudder!!

 Do you ever find yourself dancing uncontrollably at inappropriate times? 
All the time much to the embarrassment of those around me – unless its my mom, aunt or grandma they usually join in. Maybe it runs in the genes
How do you feel about spiders? 
I do not like spiders they freak me out, I also disturbed by the fact or myth that we will swallow spiders in our sleep. Bluck
