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! ;-)

Catch Up

So I have severely neglected my blog lately. Then again, I have pretty much neglected most things in my life lately. I guess you could say I'm suffering from some slight depression. I just don't seem to have any motivation to do much of anything these days. I haven't done my blog, my homework, my housework, paid bills, etc. Yeah it's pretty bad at this point. I'm hoping my whiny ass will snap out of it pretty quick because when I really try to put things into perspective I really don't have anything to bitch about. So I have no idea what the hell is wrong with me. I mean really, I have it pretty damn good. I have a nice house, a good job, a loving healthy family. I mean what more could I ask for right? Well apparently my spoiled ass still isn't satisfied. ho hum.

My New Motto

I saw this on a bumper sticker today and decided it summed it all up for me.

"Can't feed em? Don't breed em."

Health Mission Week #3

Well it's week #3 and I'm actually off to a really good start. Last week I not only joined the YMCA but I also got some good walking shoes and a couple of outfits. So this actually puts me ahead of the game a little bit which I am pretty relieved about. I have a quiz and a test in school this week and I just don't have a lot of time to be "working out."

I have an appointment next week with a personal trainer. The Y swears that their THC program has a 96% success rate and I just can't go wrong with it. Well we will have to see about that. I mean honestly what is she going to tell me that I don't already know. My problem is not miseducation, it's simply lack of follow thru. There is a big difference there.

So anyways, I should have a couple of work out buddies to help me stay on track and focused so who knows this thing might work out after all. And maybe I will actually be doing some sort of exercise by week #4. You never know...

Update on my addiction to Scott Baio's reality show

Okay so as you all know I am a reality tv addict. One of the shows I have been watching is "Scott Baio is 45 and single." It's really quite addicting as the guy is a little nuts. He definitely has some serious commitment issues and it's been pretty humorous watching him try to figure out why he's still single.

So anyways, I finished watching the last show tonight, a little late I know but I can never seem to catch anything on actual TV anymore. I always have to wait and download it. But back to the point. At the end of his 8 weeks with his life coach he is supposed to make a decision about whether or not he wants to marry his girlfriend or just be single for the rest of his life. So at the end of the last show he more or less proposes to his girlfriend. I mean he doesn't do the whole down on one knee thing, or even give her a ring, but he tells her that he has decided that he is ready for marriage and he wants to take the next step in their relationship. She naturally tells him that she is ready too and then they do some smooching, etc. And then she drops the bomb....she's pregnant!

OMG, so I've been watching how nuts this guy is for the last 8 weeks and now you are telling me he is going to have offspring. Aaaahhhh!! But you know I almost have to wonder if she didn't somewhat plan that. I mean she had told him in week 1 of the show that at the end of the 8 weeks he either needed to have a decision or she was leaving him. So had she planned this as an alternate tactic. hmmmm....very interesting. Anyways, I just had to share that with all you Scott Baio fans out there, I am totally trippin about this whole thing. I really hope he does another show.

Health Mission Week #2

Well week #2 is off to a fantastic start, not only did I receive a coupon in the mail this weekend for a $7 joiner fee at the YMCA but I also have 2 offers for a workout partner. This really couldn't get any better except for the fact that one of my workout partner offers, aka Kelli, has obviously done this whole Health Mission thing before and came up with the perfect schedule. Starting with Week#2 my schedule will be as follows:

Week #2 Join the YMCA
Week #3 Buying workout clothes for the Y
Week #4 Buying workout shoes (sorry Kelli I really think I need to make week#4 ALL about the shoes)
Week#5 Buying the appropriate workout fluids and supplements for the workout routine
Week #6 Determine the workout schedule
Week#7 Sign up for the workout classes
Week #8 Watch the workout classes to determine if they look too coordinated, I don't want to
look like a fool
Week #9 Go ahead and try one of the workout classes to see if I can do it
Week #10 This now puts me REALLY close to Thanksgiving, and then of course right after Thanksgiving is finals and then Christmas, and then end of the year stuff at work. So I might have to revise a whole new schedule after the new year....

I really think this plan is off to a great start! I already promised my son that we are getting our pictures taken tomorrow at the Y for our new memberships so it's a definite go. The great thing about 4 year olds is that they never let you forget a promise. I'll have to let you all know how it goes. I can't wait!

Mystery Party Results

So Saturday night was my mystery party and I showed up as Eva Coli, the head chef at the resort. It was rather comical because I found a chef hat at party city so I wore it, an oven mitt, and brought a large cooking spoon. It was pretty comical. We searched and searched for an appropriate costume for Byron, aka Juan Hunkyguy, the lifeguard. But, we couldn't find anything we wanted. I wanted at least a whistle and maybe some zinc for his nose but it's just too close to fall and all the stores were out of those types of items.

Nonetheless, the party was a hit. Byron ended up being the murderer which was hilarious because none of us guessed it. He really did a pretty good job. His character was supposed to hate me because he had been demoted so I could take his place as head chef. Sadly, he did a pretty good job of acting like he didn't like my character. The whole thing was rather comical.

Probably the best part however was what I found out after the party. My friend Shea had said her goodbyes first and as soon as she went out to her car her partner in the game, who was the hostess's younger brother, made a comment that he knew who Shea was. I tried to get more information out of him about it but he wasn't really budging. Then I asked him if he knew her from the Internet because I said if he did, that was a very likely possibility considering her blogs and such. Then it dawned on me....yahoo personals! He busted out laughing when I said this and finally admitted that was how he knew her. I of course found this hysterical as I was the one who helped sign her up for Yahoo personals in an effort to prove that there were definitely guys out there that would be interested in her, she just hadn't met them yet. I had started sending her some different profiles that looked of interest until she finally made herself a profile.

Apparently, at one point in the evening when Matt and Chris (one of the hosts) disappeared, they were actually down in the basement looking up Shea's profile online to confirm that it was her. Hilarious!! I mean what are the chances of such a thing happening? Naturally Matt didn't want me to say anything because he was trying to figure out how he was going to let this whole thing play out but he just doesn't understand the way the whole "girlfriends" relationship works. The very second I got into my car I called Shea and blurted out that he knew her. It took her a few minutes to figure it out but then it suddenly dawned on her where she knew him from. The whole thing is just really too funny. He's not necessarily her type but nonetheless a really nice guy, highly intelligent, and pretty good looking. I think it definitely proves my case that not everyone on the Internet is a psycho. After all, that is how me and my man met. :-)

OMG! It's My Dream Come True....

For those of you who have also read my MySpace page, you know that I listed the one person I would like to meet as Donnie Wahlberg from New Kids on the Block. Yes, I was a HUGE NKOTB fan back in the day. I think I had EVERYTHING NKOTB. So as I was getting my daily dose of Perez today I came across the best news ever....several of the new kids all in one place to help celebrate Donnie's birthday, almost like a mini-reunion. I love it! It would be like a dream come true. I gotta tell ya, even at like 50 the man is still hot. If he were here right now I would be all up on that shit. Check it out!
