Oh, Those Commercials again

Listen, Baby who can do all that CG stuff, your dumb parents are never going to notice you.  I think you must be extremely gifted and smart so maybe you will luck out and enter Yale at the age of 4 and can move into a dorm.
Listen, Jerry, Man up already!  Quit stalking Jessica.  You must call her 8 or 9 times a day by my count. Thank goodness for fast forward.
Listen, Alec Baldwin, you are no barbarian.  They are much classier than you.  Go back to 30 Rock.
Listen, parents of the kid who can't find the Totino's.  The kid is dumb.  Not only could he not see the darn box, he left his cell phone in the freezer.  Don't save up for a college fund for that one.
Listen, moms who leave your babies with the dads to see if the diaper leaks, way to go!!!

Happy Happy Joy Joy

There's a lot to be said for endorphins.  You can pump them into your system by exercise, did you know that?  A great shopping trip doesn't hurt either.
I combined both this morning and ended up with two great shirts and a couple thousand steps under my belt.
It is not, I'm telling you, easy to buy clothes when you are in your sixties.  First of all, gravity is not your friend.  A lifetime of poor eating habits and a tummy that holds on to every calorie it can get its hands on don't help either.
So when you lose some weight and your body seems a little smoother, well, shopping goes smoother too.   I tried on a lot of stuff that I had to say no way to but the two things I bought are wonderful....and I look nice.....and not too much like an old lady.
I do have a word for those designers out there.  We are here and we have money to spend....we do not want to look like our daughters or granddaughters, and we sure as the devil don't want to look like our mothers, so get a clue and design some easy, casual wear for us.  I know you're out there--the guy or gal with the right ideas, so get going already!  No skinny, brightly colored jeans for us and no polyester pants with matching tops or jogging suits.  We'll save those for the nursing home.  We still care about fashion but we don't want to look stupid trying to be fashionable. OK?  Got the picture now?  Hurry it up.
I'd like to go in a store and try on five things and buy them all!  If you are in my age group, I bet you would too.
For now, I have to be happy with what I can get and believe me I am full of joy today!

I'd Walk a Mile

I have been dieting and part of the regime is to walk 10,000 steps a day.  I know...seems impossible right?  It's not!!!!
I walk around the house all day.  I walk during my daytime shows and  before you know it, I've done it.  And it's not power walking either--just steps....and it's fun!  I can't believe I just said that.
The weather around here prevents me from walking outside often but that is not why I walk inside.  If I walk outdoors by myself and sometimes even with DH, I start counting my steps. Like 1,2,3,4,5, 6, 7, 8 and then start over 1.2,3....you get the picture.  With the TV on at home I can just listen to the soapy ongoings on Days of Our Lives without becoming too invested in the show.  I walk during General Hospital too.  Not just on the commercials either. 
I am probably wearing a path in our carpet but DH does not seem to mind so neither do I.  We need new flooring in the back room anyway! LOL
I feel like a million dollars.  I've lost weight, I feel light on my feet and I don't feel deprived or hungry at all!  The whole situation just amazes me.
Before you know it I'll be training for a marathon or something...........oh, sure!

There is a new show on television about a man who was in a car accident with his family and afterwards he wakes up one day with his son and the next day with his wife.(I almost wrote daughter she sure looks young enough).
He is not sure which reality is the real one.  I can tell him what is wrong.
He is in the wrong universe.  He is evil Lucius Malvoy and he should go back to Hogwarts and his real son, Draco.  I probably drive my DH crazy during the show because I always call the guy Lucius and I say"Oh, Lucius Malvoy" a lot in a pitying voice.
Anyway, wake up and go home already.
Speaking of going home, I have noticed that my new car is the most popular color and style in my neighborhood.  It is an alien green Kia Soul and there are many of them in these here parts so I have made up some new terms to deal with it.
Parking one space over with a car between--Soul Sandwich.
I'm going north and my twin is going South on the same road--I'm coming and going.
If I just see another green Soul beside me--double vision.
Another Soul in front of me on the same street--getting ahead of myself.
I'm sure I'll think of more as the time passes and I will add the terms to my list but for now that's it.
Oh, and if I see Lucius Malvoy in a green Soul, I will direct him to Hogwarts.
