The World's Laziest Blogger

Um yeah so that would be me. In fact, I think I will just go ahead and give myself that award. I really kind of feel guilty about it but I just haven't been motivated to do much of anything lately. I don't know what the hell is wrong with me. I haven't even hardly been doing anything at work either. So needless to say the poor blog is suffering. I will try to see if I can work on it this weekend but I have many unfinished projects around the house and at work that I need to work on as well. Of course, the problem is that I say that every weekend and yet nothing really gets accomplished. Ho hum...

My crazy fall

This last Tuesday my clumsy ass fell as I was taking my son to school. I swear only I could do this but it was really the craziest thing ever. There are two sets of double glass doors that we have to go through to get into the building. My son had opened up the first set of doors and was yelling at me not to get the second set of doors because he wanted to open them. So I stood in front of the doors and didn't move. The next thing I can remember I was on the floor literally in a roll with my feet in the air, almost like I was doing a backward somersault. I looked up and I saw some old man and the lady from the front desk standing next to me asking me if I was alright. I remember laughing about it and getting up as quickly as possible so I didn't look like a complete idiot. I started walking away and they kept asking me if I was alright and I just kept laughing it off saying that I was sorry but I was really okay, blah blah blah.

So I took my soon into his class and then left to go get into my car. As soon as I sat down in my car I wanted to die. I swear my ass has never hurt so bad in all my life. As I was driving to work with every little bump in the road I groaned in pain. It was horrible. I still don't know what the hell happened but I was in serious pain. So long story short I have had to baby my fat ass all week trying to get the pain to go away. I even had to stay home from work the day after it happened. I couldn't lean over or get in and out of a chair, and forget sitting for long periods of time.

The worst part about it is that I have no idea what happened. I was just standing there and next thing I knew I was on the floor. Of course my supervisor tried to make up all sorts of crazy things. She says, "It sounds like you blacked out. Are you pregnant?" WTF What does blacking out have to do with being pregnant??! And no I'm not preggo. So anyways, for those of you are might actually be concerned about my ass, I am feeling better now. I think I just bruised my tailbone pretty good and it's taken a few days to heal. I should be completely back to normal by the end of the week. :-)

It's here! It's finally here!!!!

I am so freaking excited! Do you all have any idea how long I have been waiting for this?! Well ever since the end of season 3 obviously!! For those of you who haven't figured it out yet the cast of the Project Runway Season 4 has just been announced and once again we have some fine pickers this round.

It was just this last March that I had the utmost honor of meeting Mr. Kayne Gillespie of Season 3 (you know in the pic posted on my main page) and he was absolutely FABULOUS. Actually he was seriously hilarious. He was the guest of honor at the American Cancer Society's Spring Fling where he showed off his latest designs in a runway show and told us all the little dirty secrets from the show. To include what a bitch Laura was! Ha! It was great, he even cursed in his speech in front of all those old bitties at the spring fling. It was absolutely fantabulous. Here are a few pics from his show with some of the gorgeous dresses he designed. Oh yeah and he even makes the shoes! Woot!

So anyways, Season 4 is quickly approaching and I am positively estatic. I can't even begin to tell you how addicted I was to that show. I hope you all are ready becuase I will need people to gossip with the show.

Dexter is back

Woohoo! I am so excited. The season premiere of Dexter started tonight and I was so excited. Apparently a little too excited because I actually screwed up the time. I thought it was on at 9:00 my time but no it was on at 9:00 eastern time, so I totally missed it.

But the good news is that Shotime totally had the first episode available on line just for me to watch. How freaking awesome is that?! And I couldn't believe it was up so quick. For those of you who also missed it, or if you haven't see Dexter yet, you have to watch it. Yes it's slightly morbid but in a slightly humorous and really suspenseful kind of way.

So if there are any Dexter fans out there, reply to my post so I will have someone to talk about the show with. :-)

Health Mission Week ??

Okay so I can't even remember what week I am on at this point. I know it hasn't been that long but I apparently have a very short memory span. So anyways, I know that I am about 2 1/2 weeks into the actual "workout" part of my health mission and I have to say that it is going quite well so far. I am actually really enjoying going to the Y and working out. It's some "me" time, gives me some time to think and kind of destress a bit before going back home and dealing with the life that I am apparently not very happy with right now.

I have to say that I am actually surprised at how well I am actually doing with it. I seem to do a little bit better each time I go with a little stronger work out and even an increase in length. Shockingly, much longer then the initial "2 minutes" that I had told my personal trainer that I was going to be able to do. Oh, so I didn't tell everyone that story....

On my first meeting with my personal trainer he began by asking me several questions about my general health status and what kind of "risks" I took in life like smoking, drinking, etc. He even asked if I chewed tobacco to which I wittingly replied, "yes actually I'm glad to see you have cup holders on several of your machines because I brought my spit cup with me today." My trainer busted out laughing, he was like okay I'm going to go ahead and mark no as your answer for that one.

So then, when he got to the question of, "if I put you on one of the machines..." I didn't even let him finish the question and I said "2 minutes." And he said but you didn't even let me finish the question. So I let him finish the question and again I answered "2 minutes". He naturally replied that he was expecting at least 30 so I went ahead and agreed that I would try to do 20 minutes, 3 days a week. So I'm pretty proud of the fact that so far I have averaged about 45 minutes 3 days a week. But there is no way in hell I'm telling my trainer that. He will naturally expect more out of me, so I figure a good round number like 20 minutes, 3 days a week should satisfy him just enough that he won't want me to go crazy the next weeks. I don't, my appointment is scheduled for October 9th, so I will have to wait and see. Wish me luck!

Holiday Galleria

The Holiday Galleria 2007 was my newest socialite event. Luckily I was invited to the special "preview night" with my friend Shea. Someone from her work gave her 2 tickets to the preview night, worth a whopping $50 a piece. I naturally accepted the invite even though it was a school night seeing as how there was free champagne and food involved.

For those of you who don't know the Holiday Galleria is a yearly social event in Wichita held at our local expo hall where vendors from around the midwest gather to offer us Wichitans their finest one-of-a-kind items just for the holidays. It is sponsored by the junior league of Wichita as part of their fundraising activities so some Wichita's top business leaders and their wives, well okay mostly their wives, show up to shop their little hearts away.

The nice thing was that it was fully catered and had all the free champagne we could handle and let me tell you we definitely didn't shy away from the free champagne. Shea and I naturally thrive on these types of events as we try to act like a proper socialite which is rather comical to watch I must say. So anyways, at some point in the night as we were sipping our champagne, Shea made a comment that we were like Paris and Nicole. I gotta tell ya, I ate that shit right up. My immediate response was to hold the title of Nicole as I figured her way with words would come naturally for me, the daughter of a truck driver.

As the night went on I began to play my "part" if you will and at one point even called Shea a bitch, in the most endearing manner possible. It was really rather comical. I think her jaw might have actually hit the floor, that is until she realized how freaking hilarious it was that were at this social event calling each other bitches. So as the night came to an end and we had not bought a single thing but drank about 5 glass of champagne, ate till our little hearts were content, and received a free massage, we vowed to become "Paris and Nicole" for the sake of all future socialite events.

Next stop....Rocking the Roundhouse at WSU in October. Hope to see you there bitches! ;-)
