As I purge this drivel from my body, like so many e coli filled hamburgers, I'm listening to one of my all time favorite songs, Lido Shuffle by Boz Scaggs. I love this song. "Heart of Mine" by Scaggs is all time great, too.
And so Day 99 of being without my laptop begins....
Ok, ok, so maybe it's only Day 2, but it sure feels like it's been forever. I'm trying to fill my day with productive activities. Let's check out yesterday morning and see how I did:
7:20-7:30 showered for work
7:30-8:00 sobbed when I realized I couldn't take my laptop to work
8:00-8:05 dressed and left for work
8:05-8:30 sobbed the entire way to work; discreetly checked out several hott cops at Sheetz through the tears
8:30-9:00 arrived at work and ate breakfast
9:20-noon ate, sobbed, sobbed, sobbed, ate, ate, sobbed while eating, did a little work
Wow. Ya know, I never realized how jam packed my mornings were until I read that.
I was reading an article in the paper last night about weight loss. The reporter said, "Specialists generally agree that sugery is the only proven method to keep weight off." That is a LIE. My co-worker had gastric bypass a year or so ago, and she's already gaining weight. They're trying to give the impression that you can't gain weight once you have this surgery and that isn't true. I just read an article a few weeks ago detailing how some people have had the surgery TWICE because of gaining weight after the first surgery.
I love the commercial for this week's episode of Halfway House, the FOX sitcom about a group of ex-cons living together. The one chick is waving a piece of paper in front of the other people, singing and taunting, "I just got my GED..." The guy in charge of them says, "That's not your GED. That's just the application." LOL!
I *heart* small town newspaper stories. There was a story in our paper yesterday about a woman whose indoor plant had grown tremendously large. They actually interviewed a greenhouse dude, who said, "That is a good sized plant." Phew! What the story would have lacked without *that* amazing insight!
My boss was watching the Waltons yesterday and Erin had her date, GW, at her house. GW said, "I like your parents." Erin replied, "I do, too." That just struck me as hilarious. I would *hope* "liked" her parents.
I was watching CNN this morning and they were telling the story of a man who had survived cancer twice in his youth and was making it his mission to climb certain mountains. His last name was Swarner (sp?). He was preparing to climb his seventh and final mountain. Here's the frightening part: he trained by carrying 100 pounds of sand and rocks on his back...AND he was WHISTLING while he was carrying all this weight!! WTH?! I'm breathing so hard when I do Taebo that I can't even keep up an eight count, and this dude is WHISTLING! When I'm doing Taebo and I think I can't stand one more minute of it, I usually hit that part of the tape where Billy says, "Smile! I want to see you smile when you're working hard!" That always makes ME smile. It also makes me want to choke him....
