Mid-week ramblings


It's Wednesday. Two down, two and change to go until the long weekend.  Hooray!  MommaShyner is coming for a visit.  That means we get to be silly and go to bingo and basically drive Lovey crazy.  Poor guy.

I don't know where MommaShyner ever found this song, but we used to laugh about it ALL THE TIME.  We can bitch him out right along with her.  Good times.

<did I mention that I will just jump from topic to topic?>

DMX, DMX, DMX….what the hell is wrong with you man?!?!  Somehow you just manage to keep getting in more trouble.  I've lost count, but I think it's a good 5 times you've been arrested in Miami in the last couple of months.  How stupid are you to get busted by an undercover buying 15 bucks worth of weed and 20 bucks worth of coke?  I'm not saying go out and do drugs, but don't you at least have someone that could pick that up for you?  And all the money you have, or used to have, that's all you can afford?  The economy really IS tight, huh?

Well, enjoy your time in jail.  It doesn't help your case any when upon standing before the judge, who tells you that you're not going to be able to bond out, you storm off and say "I ain't staying in fucking jail."  Guess what?  YES YOU ARE!  They're not letting you out and they're going to send you right back to Arizona where you're in trouble for animal cruelty.

<on a haha note, the reporter said that you'll be in jail until they EXTRICATE you back to Arizona.  I love Miami.>

I love garlic.  I love sea salt.  I put garlic on just about everything. 

Vampires will never get me. 

When I saw this product in the store, it couldn't get in my cart fast enough.  I LOVE IT!! I have it on my eggies in the morning and in my soup for dinner.  The deliciousness has no boundaries.

<fortunately, I don't sweat garlic>

This morning was my first official day on the Wii Fit.  I hooked it up last night and did a quick run-through.  Last night my Wii age was 42, yikes!  This morning I was doing a little better and I was only 37.

I was way too lazy (and sleepy) to take pictures of the screen this morning.  They offer up four sections to play in: aerobics, strength training, balance games, and yoga.

Aerobics this morning was a bit of step, which wasn't a problem, and pseudo-jogging where I almost ran over my trainer. 

Strength training had me doing some push-ups and planks on the left and right along with some crazy sit-up type things and something else that has slipped my mind.

Balance games were pretty funny.  I love walking the tightrope.  You have to jump over this thing that's trying to eat your legs, but at no time are you supposed to actually JUMP on the balance board.  So, of course, first thing I do?  JUMP!  I had to start over.  There's also a slalom ski course and a ski jump that are pretty fun.  I jumped 50 meters on the first time (which is terrible).  I tried again and got the hang of it and nearly tripled my distance!  Go Mii!

I saved the yoga for last since I wanted to be a little warmed up before trying it.  Got through breathing, warrior, and tree poses this morning.  Good stuff.

All this happened in approximately 35 minutes.  Was it a workout?  Meh, the jury is still out on that one.  I didn't break a sweat.  Maybe as I unlock more things to do, it will get more challenging.  But it's cute and it's fun and it tracks my weight and BMI, so it serves its purpose.  I'll keep you up to date on this since I know you are hanging on my every word.

Well, in the words of my great-uncle, "Allez cuisine!".  And have a great hump day!

  1. Garlic rocks. I had a really hard time when my parents were here because my mom hates garlic and I cook with so much of it you'd think I was trying to ward off vampires.I can't wait to hear more about the Wii fit thing. I've been going back and forth between buying that or Rock Band…but I think I'd use the Wii fit more, especially after school starts and there's nobody here to make fun of me.

  2. I completely love garlic. Kiddo and Lovey don't understand it. Neither do I actually, but it's just so good! Ground, broiled, powder, salt, LOVE!
    I'll try to keep the postings up. I look at it like this: I'll probably get Rock Band eventually, but that's for everyone. The Fit is for MY sanity. I love them but it won't help if I lose my mind, lol.

  3. I'm totally interesting in WiiFit info. It sounds interesting but I've yet to read anything that leads me to believe I'd actually DO it. A long while back, I posted about someone being in development on a pole dancing game – no idea what became of that one (can't figure out how it would possibly work).A coworker face-planted in her living room after getting too involved in the skiing game.Garlic sea salt sounds like da bomb! I'm gonna look for it.

  4. Hmmm, I certainly wouldn't say that, in maybe 2 weeks, I'll still be all gung-ho about it but I have the attention span of a moth. I do like that it tracks your weight and BMI and stuff and you have to do more to get more to do, but I still don't know how much actual exercise I'm getting.
    I don't know how a pole dancing game would work either. I'm also no programmer though. Man I wish I had some skills. 🙂
    She musta been really leaned over forward to do that. Or really, really into the game.
    Have at it. It's totally worth it.

  5. puhleeze, I won't even let myself have cable/satellite TV. Games, even fitness games, are way down the list – unless I become convinced I'll get my money's worth out of it.the coworker was apparently very into her game and also has a horrible sense of balance. i wish they'd caught it on video!

Say What?
