DAY 40

Jolene making a goofy face while at dinner at Mi Ranchero on the Loop. Classic.

Figure Skaters will cut a bitch.

OK so I am sitting here watching the Women's figure skating long programs (They all seem long to me), and I am thinking, are the twirly things all that hard? I get that the jumps are very difficult, and there is not way in hell I could turn myself around three times in the air and land on my feet. That is some gravity defying shit. But the rest of the program is just fluff. Are they really interpreting anything? the music is always boring, the jazz hands area nice touch but all anyone even worries about are the jumps. The commentators don't get all excited when they do spins and awkward faces, so why bother? I say do the jumps, either land them, or biff and fall on your face, and then get off the ice. If I liked classical music I would...well...ok I don't know what i would do, but I probably wouldn't have many friends.

Just do the jumps ladies, I would be more specific but i cant spell salchow and axle correctly. Oh wait, I just did. Skidoosh

The most Superest Gym EVER.

Ok so I bit the bullet and joined a gym. It was time, and I have been wanting to try and start lifting weights again and just being healthier. So I chose to join Snap Fitness in the CWE, because it is close, but also because it is a chain and I can work out wih Kristen and Chris in Clayton, should our schedules align.

I go in to sign up, and the guy that is working there. We will call him Kevin, becasue it is so perfect, and also becasue that is his real name. (I am not protecting anyone here) I am in work clothes, basically give him my credit card and am obviously in a hurry to get out of there. He is being all peppy, excersicy, happy annoying. He asks me what my goals are, I say " Just want to start working out again" and in my mind I am thinking, hey dipshit, I'm fat, duh. I really take issue with gym workers. The peppy attitude may be super with your clients that are training for marathons and climbing expeditions, but for the majority of us, we would rather you shut your dirty face and leave us to our own eliptical devices. He wanted to give me a tour of the facility, which for the record is no bigger than my apartment. I almost asked who I should call if I get lost . Seriously? I told him I managed the gym at U of I but he didnt seem to get that part. The part where I effing managed the largest collegiate recreation facility in the country. Yeah that one. I think I can handle one room. I took my key card with my super bright red lanyard and skipped off into the sunset.

Something tells me Kevin and I are not BFF's.

DAY 39 - Mini vs. the City

Jolene was messing with the camera from the backseat of the car an snapped this picture.

DAY 38 - Rachel the mermaid

Rachel claims that Starbucks based their mermaid off of her likeness. I see a resemeblance...


Froyo is our favorite place! its an awesome little shop on the loop with 10 different kinds of fat free frozen yogurts and a toppings bar with fresh fruit, granola, and the sweet stuff too. Pretty much any topping you can think of, including fruity pebbles.  Its ok to be jealous, its pretty sweet. (Pun intended)

DAY 36

I have a weird obsession with Texture. I love seeing the textures of different materials. THis is the brick in the stairway in my building.


SO I got my camera back a few weeks ago but haven't had it in so long that i keep forgetting to use it! SO i took it with me yesterday and took a few good ones. I promise I will take more!

Bedspreads have coodies, and a lot of other stuff

SO in preparation for Ellie and I's NYC trip, we were debating which hotel to stay in. As you may know Ellie has the hookup on hotels so out selection is pretty sweet. We were perusing some options and I came across one that showed the pictures of the bedroom with a floral bedspread. VOMIT. We all have heard the stories about the hotel bedspread that have everything from tomato sauce to love mayonaise on them and I cannot believe that a hotel that claims to be contmporary would advertise these. Mind you, the hotels we are looking at are inthe $300-400 a night range, which makes this even more unnaceptable! Ellie and I agreed that we will not be staying at anyplace that has bedspreads. They are itchy, scratchy, dirty, and I for one do not want to get the Herp.

NYC get ready for me

Its official! Ellie and I have scheduled our next adventure and we will be taking the Big Apple by storm. I am so pumped for this. ANd because Ellie has mad hookups we will be staying at a yet to be determined 5 star hotel in manhattan. The Waldorf Astoria is a possibility. We will be exploring, relaxing, having a blast, and sampling the best of what NYC has to offer. I could not be more excited about this.

Lost my mind

Becasue I think I have lost figured out! Kristen and I were waiting on Chris to start our LOST tradition of watching together every Tuesday night and during the recap show, we had an epiphany! We figured out LOST! I am ot going to share my theory with you, because I don't want to sway you in one direction or another, but if you ask me I can explain it to you. Kristen and I are so EFFING SMART! Everyting makes so much sense now. ANd the new episode only furthered my theory so i am hoping this last season keeps on the right track and confirms my prediction, SWEET DINGLE
