I am concerned. Very concerned. I have received confirmation that we are headed for hell...in the proverbial hand-basket. Yup. It is true. Our speed has even increased over the past couple of years.
I was watching TV last night. (Don't ask what I was watching, I have already made one TV watching confession and there is no chance that I will be making another today.) Mainly baseball, but *another show caught my interest. It is while watching that *other show that I learned the following fact:
The cute girls on Deal or No Deal. You know, the ones that wear matchy dresses and hold cases with dollar amounts in them. They work 3-6 days a week and 5 months a year...making "WELL INTO THE 6 FIGURES"!!!
Holy sheep's blood batman. Seriously, I need to start working out, get some fake boobs and make a run at it. Think there is room for a 6'5 lady with killer thighs?
Please know, I never fault somone for the amount of money they make. A lot of people have jobs that pay them a lot of money and, well, don't seem from the outside to "earn it"...Good for them. They are examples of the greatness of capitalism...but this one shook me to my core.
Almost makes me want to really hit that gym. I am not kidding.
Just after I finish this danish and grande caramel frappe...
This Deal or No Deal thing is making me think of my favorite Halloween costume from last year...my very good friend Stacey dressed up like Howie Mandel and two of the computer programers she works with were the "pretty girls". You can see the pics here...
Does make me ask myself if that is what I would look like. Note to self, if you are going to be a pretty girl, shave your chest.
Woke up this morning, checked my email, and then got out of bed...yes, in that order. Aren't email phones fantastic!
I had a nice little surprise, Claire had emailed from Europe. She watched 4 different movies on the flight (Quick reviews...Sweeney Todd - Okay, I get it, he killed people and made it bloody. I get the point...Atonement - Really good. You should rent it while I am gone Bogart...I Am Legend - Eh, nothing special...Golden Compass - Watched it b/c of the controversy. Very Harry Potter-esque, but not as good.), has a great hotel room, and is looking forward to stomping through town.
So with a smile on my face and a skip in my step (what? I just heard from my lady.) I went and made coffee and toast. Just as I was sitting down to watch baseball highlights and eat breakfast, my celly rings...WOOOOHOOOO IT IS THE LADY.
Nice surprise to start a nice day. Maybe these two weeks won't be so bad after all.
Sarah, I will save you the time, I sicken myself sometimes. Yes, we are one of those couples...ick.
Finally found my camera box...you know, the one where I keep the battery charger and computer hook-up...I will be able to load some pictures today and get a run-down on the blog Friday. Don't worry mom and Janet...they are coming.
