Six Questions

Josh emailed me these questions so I thought I would post my answers on my blog...

A) Four places that I go to over and over:
Work, work (yes two different jobs), Michael's, and the gym.

B) Four people who e-mail me:
The RS, Border's (but I just unsubscribe from that), I guess that's about it.

C) Four of my favorite places to eat:
The Pie, Great China, home, Mom's house

D) Four places you would love to be:
San Diego, Las Vegas, Washington DC, Colorado

E) Four people I'm almost sure will respond:
I'm not emailing this, so it doesn't really apply...but Sandy might post it too. She usually loves these things. And maybe MaryAnn.

F) Four of your favorite TV shows:
The Office, The Biggest Loser...that's about all I watch as far as TV goes.

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead

Well, i know it's unheard of for me to blog twice in a week, but here I am once again. Surprisingly I am writing my first Biggest Loser blog of the season...shocking how long it's taken.

So, for those of you who've been watching it, you may know that the least liked contestant this year is Tracey. And she finally got voted off this week. I was surprised, I didn't think they would ever do it. She was for sure a big game player, from the start of the season. I thought she would've been voted off long ago. she lost a lot of popularity early on. After she chose the black and blue teams, I swore I would never watch again. (The show has to be rigged, btw.) But, I did watch the next episode, then I missed one, and then I watched this week's.

The things that drove me crazy about Tracey, were her creepy eyes and her mannerisms. I hated when she would stick her nose in the air and shake her hair back. And she just has really creepy eyes. She did look quite thin when they showed her 'now' pictures. She seems to have lost a lot of weight. My biggest fear is that she'll come back in the next couple of weeks when they bring a contestant back on.

And, how is Daniel still here with all of his low numbers??? With losses (or not) like that, I would have thought he'd be long gone.

Mr. Beaver and Lucy

So, I have a bit of free time on my hands...I know, I can't believe it either. So, I thought, "Now will be a great time to post those fabulous Halloween pictures and blog about the sweet party."

First, I have to thank John and Megan for putting the party together. It was so fun. I love the idea of an adult trunk-or-treat. That's right, folks, we had an adult trunk-or-treat. You should be super jealous. I think we should continue the tradition as long as we continue to be childless...what else will we do for Halloween???

Earlier in the month, Sam and I were trying to think of cool Halloween costumes. I said, "I know! I want to be the White Witch from the Chronicles of Narnia." Sam replied,, "I'll be a potato beaver!" It was the funniest idea and I knew John would love it, so I sacrificed my great idea to make his costume. I didn't think I could make two in time for Halloween. I know, how noble of me, right?!? (For those of you wondering what in the world a potato beaver is, I'll explain quickly. It's the beavers from the old school Chronicles of Narnia...fabulous show. Thank you, BBC. If you don't have time to watch the whole movie, my brother does a pretty superb highlight reel.)

So, the moment you've all been waiting for (pictures):

This is Scott as the drunk Mexican, and Mary Ann as should've seen her little introduction.

Friends Of mine, Josh and Amber...I think their costumes are obvious.

John and Megan as Mulder and Scully....Great costumes! Especially with the musical entrance.

And two more of my friends, Michael and Nora...again, a pretty obvious costume. If only they'd gone as Bob and Jillian like I suggested.

Sam did win three awards for his costume, 'Best Costume,' 'Most Original Costume,' and second place for 'Scariest Costume.' Good times!

Oh, and I won 'Funniest Costume.' I guess the pickings were pretty slim!

Oh yeah! In case you want to do a side-by-side, check out these pictures from the show:

Lucy, in all her beauty.

And, the original "Mr. Beaver."
