Blondie's brother and sis-in-law, D&MG, had their baby girl yesterday! Welcome to the world Kenny G (her name lends well to this nickname).

She's a definite cutie with a full head of jet-black hair like her mom.

If Blondie can get his brother's permission (cough cough - that means Blondie, get permission!), I'll post some of her pics up!

Congrats D&MG, and Kenny G!

The next Heidi Klum... Aka Yours Truly...

Okayyyyyyyyyy, so my bootcamp instructor does not give compliments. I think I've told everyone that before. She's not a meanie, she's just not a warm person. But actually. Who knows. I've never seen her outside of class, so maybe she's dancing on bars drunk on the weekends and we are truly BFF's at heart and just don't know it. Somehow I doubt it, but I've been wrong before (gasp!) Just ask Blondie about the 3 times this weekend I was wrong - all in the span of about 5 minutes.

And I went off on a tangent.

Back to my point - bootcamp instructor does not give out compliments.

BUT (a big BUT for my big BUTT) - today she told me "Yours Truly, you are 100% improved from when you started bootcamp". Followed 5 minutes later by "You're going to be a swimsuit model in 6 months". I had to refrain myself from kissing her. I think I just stuck my tongue out at her.

Now, I know Heidi Klum is not a swimsuit model. She's a former lingerie model. But lingerie is kind of like a swimsuit. I know I've got to be completely comfortable with you before you'll see me in a swimsuit. Or lingerie. Or to be honest, just completely drunk.

So, in summary: Yours Truly = Next Heidi Klum
Bootcamp instructor <> complimentary
lingerie = swimsuit
drunk Yours Truly = drunk Yours Truly.


Woot! Hope you have a great day!

Grossest non-gross thing I've ever heard...

The gang (at the Despised Old Job Company) and I had a game we liked to play - it was the "non-dirty words that gross you out" game. Like moist. Or scab. Or crotch. Things that just give you the heebie-jeebies.

This weekend I was doing my typical watch TV routine (it's strenuous), and I about peed the couch - this was due to a commercial for a doll, and the following line was actually said "When you comb my hair, my jewels light up". Yes. Ah yes. When you comb my hair. My jewels light up. Comb hair = lit up jewels.

Someone in that ad agency is laughing.

Also, I'm laughing today due to the glorious pic of the Poohs that my sister sent out. Love you guys!

Yay! Mr Pooh has accepted a new job. For those who don't know, his old job had some funk going on with it - i.e. no paid holidays. WTF is up with that?

This is a great thing for Mr Pooh! Woo hoo!!!!

This one's for you Shugs!

Soooooooo... here it is in bullet format... the oh so exciting life of Yours Truly and Blondie!
  • Bootcamp Session #1 ended on Friday. Due to lack of people that actually showed up for the final class (it reminded me of high school), they combined my group and Blondie's group again. And tried to kill us. Again.
  • What better way to celebrate Bootcamp Session #1 ending than by EATING! Pizza and gin (for me) and brownies (for blondie) were the order of the night for Friday night. That and an 8:45 pm bedtime.
  • What other better way to celebrate Bootcamp Session #1 ending than by doing NOTHING all weekend! Blondie and I went for Greek food on Saturday night, and then Bbbb joined us for watching some Animal House. I've forgotten how hysterical that movie is, and enjoyed my evening thoroughly.
  • We were joined by Party C on Sunday to watch Singles and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. And order chinese food. Which meant we ate even more. So yeah, eating was the order of the weekend.
  • Bootcamp Session #2 started on Tuesday. Yay! I can't tell you how much better I feel with this. My running has improved so much, my body - you can see muscles. It's insane.
  • Lunch with Bbbb and Blondie today - we imbibed in salads from Bristol and just got to catch up (beyond Sat night).

Things coming up that you will get to hear about! (In bullet form)

  • CV Supper Club on Thurs night with Party C, Porn King, Girlfriend J, and various other assorted friends. Pizza Orgasmica (yes, it's real name) is the order of the evening.
  • Working out both days this weekend - I even went and bought new yoga pants today so that I'm styling and profiling in Bikram.
  • Mrs Pooh (aka wannabe-strawberry picker) is having a birthday in 7 days.

Are you guys jealous at how much fun we're having??? :)

Surprise! And Happy VD!

Happy VD everyone! Happy VD mom, dad, sis, Brother R and Shugs, Mr and Mrs Pooh and The Cutest Kid in the World, the entire G-clan, all my friends scattered all over the country, and my Blondie.

Surprise! They decided to do our final assessment at bootcamp today, in case we needed more than 1 day to complete everything. It ended up being a good thing. Since I thought everything would be done on Friday, I slept like a log last night, wasn't up all night worrying about the test.

RESULTS 2/14/2008 :
Flex: 23.5"
Situps: 47
Pushups: 22
1.5 mile timed run: 17:27

I'm QUITE content with how things turned out.

This weekend was insanely gorgeous. I can't even tell you how beautiful it was here. It had to be in the high 60's, low 70's - no wind or clouds, but plenty of sun. And it's STILL like that outside. Yet here I am inside. Working. Sigh.

Weekend was good - hit bikram on Sunday, met up with some friends for a BBQ on Sunday night, went to a bonfire on the beach on Saturday. ENJOYED THE WEATHER.

This is the final week in bootcamp, and they attempted to kill us today. The owner came out and took over one of the classes, and then my instructor decided it would be a great idea to merge my group with the group the owner took over (which happened to be Blondie's). It totally sucked. I think I dropped the F-bomb more times from 7-8 am today than I've said it my entire life.

But, I still signed up for the next session which starts next Monday.

I'll post my results on Friday, keeping fingers crossed it's better than when I started:
1/07/2008 - Results:
Sit and Flex - 24"
Situps in 60 seconds - 39
Pushups (no time limit) - 9
1.5 mile run - 19:46


P.S. And still, yay for hummus!

Hummmmmmmmmmmus = yummmmmmmmmmmmus

Greek food for dinner! It's Blondie's week to pick our date evening, and he has chosen Greek food (we are trying a new place in our hood).

I haven't stopped thinking about hummus (or falafel to be honest) now for 3 hours.

My life is so exciting.

Yay for hummus!

18 - 1

As Mr Pooh so rightly put it, the only way the Super Bowl could've been better last night if it had been Brett and the Packers beating the Patriots.

But wow. What a game! Eli buddy, you are my new best friend!
