All Hail Richard-the-Great!!!

So, this morning I woke up super early (as in Four friggin’ Thirty!!) and could NOT for the life of me get back to sleep.  Winston was very content laying at the foot of the bed (well, he moved after I’d rolled on him attempting to get up to pee) and I hated to disturb his fat ass but I eventually decided to get up and get ready for the day – which included lining up early with the old men at the Wolfvegas hospital to get my overdue blood work done.  Stupid people with their stupid needles poking me!  But now it’s overwith for another six months UNLESS something shows up again (this would be thyroid and liver/iron testing….AGAIN). 
So, because I am the super wiener that I am, and I believe in giving recognition to other superheroes, I emailed Richard – the dude I began the insanity with.  I’ve worked out with him on many occasion (okay, not inperson, but we’ve become very close friends via my tv screen) and I checked out his website and blog.  This morning I emailed him (not stalking, PROMISE) to let him know that I’ve started the program and that his results are crazy-amazing…and asking if I could link his blog (which I will get around to doing).  He is SUCH a nice guy (via email and Facebook) and I’m learning so much about his fitness routines and regimes.  (All hail RICHARD!!!)
Yesterday I ventured into Halifax to visit Amy.  (The rain was ridiculous on the highway and the City was even more crazy b/c of that AND the visit from the damn Queen).  Stephanie and I got SOAKED trying to get to and from my car.  But the twins are doing great.  Xander is now up to 3lbs and came off his central line.  The little turkey may even have a double chin but Amy says it was just the way the photo was taken.  Jacob is getting better after his scare a few weeks ago.  I can’t wait till he’s old enough for me to kick his ass for scaring us.  Smile with tongue out  I am so looking forward to holding the little monkeys for the first time.  I can’t wait.  At least I don’t cry when I see them anymore.
After we had lunch with the Amester and had a visit, Stephanie and I went and did a little wedding dress shopping.  I CANNOT wait to do this for ME.  When the time comes and I DO get a dress I will be wearing it everyday and everywhere I got.  Seriously.  I will be the crazy lady a Walmart.  You will then be able to find me at www.peopleofwalmart.com.  If anyone is in need of a toaster after this time, please come and find me.
Cheers y’all!

Hump Day!

What a dark and miserable day here….I wish I could just crawl into bed with my book and let the rest of the day pass me by.  But I can’t.  I’ve got too many things to do and big plans tonight (well, not really big plans but plans  that will let me see my love). 
I don’t even have anything really funny to say…how sad is that???  I would like to point out that people should NEVER be allowed to leave their premises with pajama or sweat pants on.  YUCK!!  The mall is not the place to wear these things.  You know what?  Neither is leggings.  I hate leggings.  And while we’re on the subject, if your shorts are riding up the inner thighs it means you likely shouldn’t have those on either.  I don’t wear shorts.  There’s a reason why.  I hate them.  That’s why some fashion genious created capris.  Thank you fashion genious for that.  OR you could do what I do and wear a skirt or a dress.  I love summer and spring for those two reasons alone.
I mean, really, I don’t (really don’t) want to watch your too tight sweat pants ride up your bum and then have to see you pick it out (or even worse let you just leave it there) AND I don’t want to see you dig around your crotch either.  Gross.
And since I’m talking about gross things…I’ve never understood the idea behind the wet willy.  Why the hell would you want to stick your finger in someone else’s greasy ol’ ear?  Or, better yet, lick your finger and then stick it in someone’s greasy ol’ ear.  *puke*  You might as well stick your finger in your belly button and smell it.  Awkward.
I don’t get it.  I also don’t get when guys spit in the air and then catch it in their mouths…or hock a lugie on the ground but suck it back up before it hits.  *Totally barfing now*
There…that’s my ramble for the afternoon.

My Fit Challenge

Alrighty, so I know earlier I promised that the next blogspot would be a funny one but that was only a few hours ago and this one doesn’t count as a technical blog. This is my challenge to you….I PLEDGE to work my ass off for the next month and try to get my body to the goal I’ve set for myself.  As I’m sure most of you know I am dedicated to working out pretty much daily (brokeback or not!) and eating healthy (damn you chocoholism!!  "You are my EVEREST!!"  *snicker* {mm….Snickers *drool*}) but I am pledging to work even harder…whatever it takes – AS LONG as it’s healthy and safe.  No crash dieting allowed or anything idiotic.  Because that would be, well, idiotic.
So, the challenge part > Who’s With Me??  Whether you want to lose 5 or 50 pounds…or just want to tone up or be a bit more active.  Who’s with me.  Send me a message and let me know.  I challenge you.

To Blog or NOT to Blog…..

Well OBVIOUSLY I have decided to blog…although I’m a little disappointed that there were really no comments from my last one (thank you Elizabeth for the pity post).
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks since Apple Blossom – SO much going on.  Donna and Victoria’s visit, my trip to Ottawa, spending time with Blair and the family, the new job (that’s the secret I wasn’t telling) and Amy’s baby shower.  (And the babies are doing fine….yay!)
This past weekend was packed…worked the Expo in the City for work, spent most of the weekend at Blair’s and basking in the sun….mmmm…had Amy’s shower (shout out to Amy and H.Bo) and then back to Blair’s and to the gym for an intense workout. 
My girl Stephanie got engaged this weekend!  Whoot!  So happy for you Stephy….AND she asked me to be her MOH (actually, she didn’t ask…she told me I didn’t have a choice in the matter – I’m fine with it).  My mom and I went to Zumba class last night…so much funn!!!!  (Jenny O. you look FAB.U.LOUS!!!!)
I’ve been re-watching The Karate Kid movies lately….I’ve finished parts 1 and 2 and looking forward to 3 since I can’t remember that one at all.  And so I’ve been checking out my dear Ralph Macchio.  The man is 48 and doesn’t look older than 25!  Of course, he was 22 playing a 15 year old in the first KK movie.  He’s got CRAZY genes.  Lookin’ Good, Daniel San!  For something funny and to see that Ralphie has a good sense of humor of himself, check out this link:  http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/c8ad4aa802/wax-on-f-ck-off-with-ralph-macchio
"Bonsei Mother F**Ker!!" – HAHAHAHA!  And can I just point out how gorge his wife is…she’s got great genes too.  I had such a big crush on him when I was little…had a poster of him (along with Michael J. Fox, Kirk Cameron and of course, my man M.J.) on my wall – that’s until the New Kids took over their spots.  I wish RM would do a little something – something other than guest stints a la Ugly Betty.  Here’s hoping.
Glee has ended for the season…I love Glee.  I love the music.  I love music – period.  Let’s all head over to tvshack.net and watch Glee (and LOST!!!) from the start, shall we?
Anyway, I guess I’m done my rambling for now.  I am going to continue to blog so someone PLEASE talk to me, leave me comments so that I can converse and know that my writings are still meaningful and that I can keep you entertained.  And I PROMISE that the next blogspot will be SO SO funny – something along the lines of Let Your Backbone Slide – to make you laugh so hard a little milk comes out your nose.
Cheers y’all!!
