Gah, crappy day...end to a crappy week.

I want a "do over" on this week, ok? My "runs" since last Saturday's race have stunk--2 of 3 consisted of as much walking as running and my one full run was so slow. I now seem to have come down with DH's cold (just in time for the weekend, how nice...just hope I can still do an 11 miler with my friend who is running a half marathon with me 4 weeks from this Sunday) and last night I found out that a dear friend of mine has been diagnosed with breast cancer. At least she's remaining relatively upbeat about things--she's joking that she's going to bleach her hair blonde before it falls out and then she thinks she may opt for double radical mastectomies (to head-off future issues with cancer) and get breast implants, instead.

The really shitty part is that her mom has terminal lung cancer, so not only does she have to deal with her own illness, but she's trying to care for her mom at the same time. It's this sort of garbage that has me leaning further and further into the atheist camp with every passing year. No loving god would ever heap this much shit on a single person and who wants to have anything to do with a deity who is an asshat?

In less unhappy news I have been working to get my datenighttoys.com site listed with search engines and set up on Google AdWords for pay-per-click advertising. So far no sales, but I'm still learning how to optimize my search keywords and page ads to get the most click-throughs/page impression, as well as the most hits for the least amount of $$. I'd love it if I could make a few hundred bucks/month off of the site, since it pretty much takes care of itself and I simply take the 35% commission. My only expenses are for the web hosting of my entry page (cheap) and advertising. I don't have to deal with order fulfillment or customer service.
