The Great Blog-off

I guess I should thank Tracy for getting me involved with the whole blogging thing. It's been fun. And, I too am shocked that I came in second place. The reasons that I'm not in first place are 1) Lore got a desk job and she has access to a computer all day at work and 2) I don't blog during the summer. The number of posts during those months are particularly low for me. But I don't regret that. There are much better things to do in the summer time than sit at a computer and rant about things to the world. So, I will proudly accept my second place ribbon.

The Biggest Loser

So, another season has come to an end. It was a great finale, yes, great! I am so glad that Michelle won. I disliked Vicky so much that if she had won I would have sworn off the show forever. It's true. I could not stand that lady. She was sneaky and mean and just low. She did, however, lose more weight than I thought she would. Good for her. But, Michelle made me proud. And, can I tell you once again how much I love Jillian? I don't know what it is about her, but she cracks me up! I love it when she yells at the contestants and they start crying. I just enjoy the show. I don't know if I would want to experience the fierceness of Jillian myself, but it's fun to watch.

So the new season starts in January. It looks like it'll be a good one. It has the biggest contestant they've ever had. I think his starting weight is like 474 pounds.! It'll be good.

Whats your Favorite brand of jeans?

Silvers for sure. But since I'm a little bit too cheap to buy them I'll go for a pair of jeans from Vanity. As long as they are sized by waist and length I'm good to go.

What is your favorite restaurant? What do you get there?

The Bombay House, hands down...Saag Paneer. So delicious, if you haven't been than you should go. Mmmm...I want some.

What is your current favorite song?

Tough question. IDK maybe the Umbrella song by that punk group. Not the original...yuck.

What's your "type"? Is that what you ended up with?

I plead the 5th on this one.

What is something unusual about you?

Ooh...when I get really excited about something I talk really fast and my voice gets all high and squeaky. It's really endearing...right?!?

How do you describe your everyday style?

As casual as possible. Pull my hair up, throw on some "business casual" clothes on a work-day. Make-up??? What's that?

What were the last three movie you saw? How were they?

Twilight, Max Payne, and The Dark Knight...I know I don't get out much.

What are your favorite TV characters?

I would have to go with some of the Office characters...don't watch much else. The contestants on the Biggest Loser don't really count as characters, do they?

What was the last book you read? How was it?

The Exceptional Student. It's a text book and it was boring!

You are asked to bring your best dish to a party, what do you make?

I go to the store and buy something...

What qualities do you find attractive in your significant other or a prospective one?

Dedication, motivation, and thinking I'm funny!

Is there a song that everytime you hear it, it reminds you of a certain memory? What is it and why?

Too many to say! I guess since it's Christmas I'll say "Wonderful Christmas Time." Yes it blows, but there are some funny memories in connection to it. I love my family!

Do you swear?

For like a week in eighth grade. Not a habit that stuck..fortunately. Just doesn't go with my personality.

What is your worst vice?

Pride...I guess.

Yeah yeah, being materialistic is bad. What is your favorite THING you own right now? coats!

Coke or Pepsi?

Pepsi...cherry! Yum!

Beach, Mountains, Big City, Country, or Desert?

Since it's winter I'm gonna go with beaches, but I did go on a really fun hiking/camping trip this summer, so maybe mountains too.

Whats your favorite Candy?

Anything sour and non-chocolate! I love candy. Laffy Taffy is a classic that usually hits the spot.

If you could dress your significant other (or prospective mate), how would you dress them? What do they usually wear?

Probably more casual...shockingly enough. Sometimes I like him in a t-shirt and a baseball cap. Something that he hardly ever wears.

What is your favorite dessert?

Ice-cream. I could go for some Farrs peppermint stick ice-cream right about now. With or without chocolate sauce.

Whats your least favorite fashion trend?

Skinny jeans for sure. Ugh...

How much did you love doing this??

So much

Another Reason Not to Have Kids

If you haven't read Tracy's blog, you should. First I must make a disclaimer...this "list" is sarcastic. While the thought of having children terrifies me, I'm sure that I would get over that and have a few...IF I happen to get married before it's too late for such things. I think that this "list" started because there is a lot of pressure in my family to have cute kids. Not that anyone is to blame. Have you seen my nieces and nephews? They are super cute! Yes, Tracy you are mistaken, I am the aunt of the cutest kids. So, with this pressure to keep up the family tradition of cute kids and the fact that having children scares me I developed a habit of responding with, "There's another reason not to have kids," when I hear women talking about child birth, etc.

I think if there was a written list most of it would be about the pain of child birth. The rest of the list would probably be the effects of child birth. For example, one of my friends said that her nose got bigger after having children. If it's true or not, I don't know. But, my nose is plenty big as it is. I don't know if I could risk it getting bigger. On the up side, one of my young women leaders quit growing hair on her legs after having children. I guess that would be a bonus to having children, shaving is a pain. So, I guess all in all, if you ever hear me say, "there's another reason not to have kids," don't take it too literally. I'm a funny girl, I make jokes!

For those of you who may not know, I HAVE read the books. Yes, all of them. Even the illegally released portion of "Midnight Sun." I think I went into the books expecting more than they were. They are teen-pop-trash. They are what they should be. And yes, the books are slightly better than the movie.

Tracy, I couldn't agree more with you, I HATE Bella (that's the main character for those of you that don't know). Oh and I forgot one unattractive characteristic of Edward, he's also hard as marble. Weird.
