Can You Say Loser?

First week back at the gym in over a month.  I am feeling it, but feeling it in a good way, in a “holy shit, I think I can already see my biceps again” way.  My gym is holding a Biggest Loser contest.  Everyone puts in 10 bucks and then the winner (weighed in April) will take the whole pot.  Last year it was like 400 bucks.  Dude, I am so entering that!  And I am going to win.  And when I win, I am going to buy new clothes.  In a smaller size. You heard it here first.


Silent Night

Last night when I got out of work it was snowing.  Snowing pretty hard for a quick little storm that took everyone by surprise.  As I walked out to my car, the church bells were ringing, playing Christmas songs- Good King What’s His Face and The First Noel.  I was the only car in the parking lot and the snow was fresh and fluffy as I brushed off my car to the Christmas bells.  It was peaceful and nice and made everything seem okay and beautiful, like newly fallen snow. Sometimes I need that quiet to remember that life is good.  Because it is, it’s all good.

Asked Today

Are you one of those hippie girls who smells like patchouli?

Once upon a time, my friend, I was.  And then I learned that appearances and beliefs don’t necessarily go hand in hand.  Better to hold onto the beliefs rather than the patchwork clothing…. yes?

Do Re Mi

My mom sent me this today and it made me smile.

Thanksgiving with the family was good. Haley not only had a turkey head dress, but also a turkey dance to accompany it. That girl is not very shy. Also pretty darn smart. She figured out quickly which team to be on for charades….. she had to act out “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and I was able to get it within minutes. Takes after her Auntie I do believe.

I also kicked some serious butt in Wii hula-hooping, I must say.

Tonight I am off to Leavitt Area High School’s second annual 15th year reunion. Yes suh!

I Get a Kick Out of This

Cyrus Watching Shrek

The other night Shrek was on tv and I had it on for background noise while I was doing stuff on my computer. Cyrus normally doesn’t pay any attention to the tv, but for some reason he really was into this. This just cracks me up. He even moves out of the way as Shrek moves forward.

This is not the first time it has happened.  I see you pulling out of the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru line as I am pulling in.  There are four cars separating us.  You pull away.  I wait in line for my turn.  Four poeple get their coffee orders before I do.  I order a coffee and a bagel.  I wait for my bagel.  All in all, this ends up taking AT LEAST five minutes.  I leave Dunkin Donuts and then somehow, usually in Livermore Falls, about fifteen minutes away from my destination, I catch up to you.


Logic and speed and time should all work together and tell us that I should not be able to catch up with you.

I drive at a reasonable speed.  I do.  Maybe five or ten miles over the speed limit.  Nothing criminal.

You on the other hand, do not.

You drive slower than freaking death.  Seriously.

I know your license plate number.  I know your little curly head peering over your steering wheel.  You, lady in the green subaru,  have become my arch nemesis.  Its on.  Big time.
