The Gym Whore

For those of you on Pinterest and blogging... do you ever wonder if your blog material is pinned?  I'd never pin my own stuff (just not how I roll)... but I pin things from blogs I read - I wonder if I should be telling the bloggers that they've been pinned.  Just a thought.

That being said, plug your ears and get the kids out of the room because I'm about to litter this post with foul language.

I joined a gym back in ... September... let us not get into how many times I've made it there in those couple months.
The first day I was at the gym I was working out, and a couple walked in - they guy says "Hi" to me and strikes up a friendly conversation.  I tell him that it's my first day and he goes onto tell me about how awesome the owners are and how nice the people are, etc.  He introduces himself (his name is Steve but I don't want to confuse him with my man, so I'll just call him 'he') and points to his wife and tells me her name.
This dude has been super kind and friendly to me each time we're in the gym together, always says hi, makes small talk about the weather or current event, but never crosses the line where I feel he's a creeper.

His cunt for a wife, on the other hand... is a fucking Bitch - with a capital B!  The first day when he pointed and said "That's my wife, Katie" (yes, I even went out of my way to remember the cunts name) she didn't even really look my way to nod hello.  Fine, you're working out and way too cool... no big deal, I'm not there to be friends either.  Each time he comes in and says hello, she just walks right over to her precious bike and starts peddling - without so much as a smile in my direction.  I've become used to this behavior from her - she's a cunt, she knows it, and doesn't care what people think of her.  Good for you, cunt.
Yesterday though.. I was <thisclose> to saying something to her.
They walked in as a couple as they always do... they didn't see me.  They are doing cardio and I am behind them on some machines.  They get off their bikes at the same time and turn to walk ... she's in front, he sees me and says "hi", I say "hi" back, she snaps her head back so fast to see who he's talking to, sees me and rolls her eyes back in front of her so hard I thought they were going to pop out of her fucking cunt.
I don't know if she thinks that I'm trying to steal her man, or if she thinks that because I don't workout everyday that she is way better than me, or if she's just a flat out whore.

I've done NOTHING in this situation to warrant that type of attitude from her.  Her husband was kind enough to make me feel welcome on my first day, and from what I've seen since that day - he says "Hi" to damn near every soul that walks in the place.  Get over yourself bitch.

I'm not a threat, I'm WAY cooler than you'll ever be, and just because I don't workout everyday - it only means that my life is way more fun that you'll ever have in your life.

Take the stick out of your ass and shove it up your cunt as hard as possible so that it comes out your skull and you die.

(I told you to put the kids in the next room...)

That's all.  I really don't like people like that, so.. I'm hoping that blogging about it will allow me to continue to bite my tongue and not call her a cunt to her ugly face.

Thanks for sticking with this one... not usually how I blog.

{2000's} Tubular Tuesdays Music Linkup!

I feel like the 2000's (how else should that be said; it sounds funny to me) were so lame, with one exception - Eminem.  This post will probably be full of him, I just feel like music lost it's way during this decade.  Sure, there was a fair share of fun music, but a serious lack of true talent.

By far, my all time number 1 Eminem song is The Way I Am.  That being said, I will forever have one negative connotation that goes with it - that is: I was dating a boy when this CD came out and this song quickly became my favorite.  A fact about me; I rap - some call it good, some call it bad - I do it regardless because I'm passionate about rap music, especially if I like a song.  I digress... when this song came on in my car, I was driving, he was shotgunning (not this shotgunning, but the act of riding shotgun) and I began my passionate rap along with my favorite song.  He looked at me and busted a gut, like seriously laughing, not just a little chuckle over how cute I was.  He OBVIOUSLY was a major loser and I'm happy to report that my current boyfriend encourages me to rap and quite enjoys it.  Unfortunately for me, I always think of that moment when this song comes on - it's still my favorite though, because it's a bomb ass song.

On Em's next CD, my top pick was Superman - I tried to rap/karaoke this song on one of my birthday's.. I was already 3 sheets to the wind... it was a mild fail (as opposed to an epic one)... later that night I fell off my barstool.  Have I ever told  you that story?  Doubt it; I don't remember it happening.  I only pick this song because it has that wonderful night associated with it.

Another wonderful memory I have is driving my mom's HUGE pick-up truck down to a car show, this song came on the radio, I turned it up and started belting it from the top of my lungs - I guess I also started speeding too.. I got pulled over and got a ticket :(  I still LOVE to jam to this song!  At the time, there was no better group of women than these; Pink, Mya, Christina, Lil' Kim, and Missy - Lady Marmalade.  This also used to be my favorite song to dance to at the clubs - I was 20 when it came out, so I was big into the club scene then.

A song about shoes?  Hells to the yes!  Do you guys remember Air Force Ones?  What ever happened to Nelly anyways?  I LOVED this song - it was popular when I worked at a shoe store with my friend Pam, I remember trying to teach her the words and how to slang them up like these guys do... lol, good times!

Back when she went by Jennifer Lopez she teamed up with Ja Rule (who later proved to be a douche).. and I loved this song: I'm Real

Don't hate on me for throwing R. Kelly in the mix - at the time he was a decent enough dude.. and The Remix of Ignition was another of my club jams!

I've never likes any music that Kanye West has put out except for this one song, Gold Digger with Jamie Foxx.  It's upbeat and fun, makes me want to shake my tailfeather.

A few others:

Now... as I've said week after week - GO LINK UP.

{90's} Tubular Tuesdays Music Linkup!


Man - the 90's were MY decade, not to say anyone else can't claim the same, but in terms of music... I was all over the place.  I had a tendency to buy an album and just listen to it over and over and over... something I still do today.  So trying to pick out specific songs is ... hard.

I'm going to start off with my X-rated fantasy, if I'm being honest, I discovered my sexuality at a young age, so that being said... In the 90's The Box Channel was huge (you call in and pay to play the video you wanted), every time this Madonna song came on it was the closest thing I could find to sex on TV (aka porn)... so I fell in love with it; do you remember this song/video?  After watching it now, it's pretty weird...

Next up is a sad one, but a great song, nonetheless.  Toni Braxton's Un-Break My Heart.  Watching through all these videos over these posts its funny to me how people film the videos.  She's just prancing around her house in a bra and panties with a big shirt covering her - cause obviously we all do that (shit, I would if I had her body too though!)

One of my favorite 90's albums was The Presidents of The United States of America's self titled album.  Picking one song off this album was extremely difficult.  I narrowed it down to Lump, Dune Buggy, Boll Weevil, and Kitty.  I went with the classic Kitty because it is an awesome song.  Take a listen:

Another of my favorite 90's albums is from Weezer, The Blue Album as it's more commonly known.  While I love all the songs on this disc, the one that has always been my favorite is Undone (The Sweater Song) - simply classic to me.  I scream this shit from the top of my lungs!

Another of my favorite albums from this decade is What's The Story Morning Glory? by Oasis.  I still keep this one in my car and listen to it quite a bit.  Literally every song on this album is amazing... my favorite though, without a second thought is Champagne Supernova; enjoy...

I also enjoyed the album Pieces of You by Jewel - as I began my search of the album for this post I couldn't help but feel maybe this didn't quite qualify for my tops picks of the 90's... I continued on looking at the track list and picking based on memory what I thought would be my favorite - I did my youtube search and began to listen.  So many memories flooding back to me, not to mention just her voice sends chills down my spine - this lady is talented!  Here is Near You Always by Jewel.

Moving on to En Vouge - a group who straight out ROCKED the 90's.  Funky Divas was another great album of the 90's - my favorite though, I think mostly because of the video was Giving Him Something He Can Feel... I loved those red dresses!

Everyone knows Alanis Morissette and every one knows her Jagged Little Pill  album and if you don't climb out from under your rock fool!  She recorded an acoustic version of this album a few years back and I rushed out to get it.. it's probably a bit more amazing than the studio recording.  I loved her in the 90's and she can still belt it out today!  My pick from this album is You Oughta Know

One of my favorite songs in the late 90's (while I was in high school) was Picture Me Rollin' by 2Pac.

Alright, let us round up the 90's with some crazy, sexy, cool ladies by the names of T-Box, Left Eye, and Chilli.  I remember being in middle school when this album came out and everyone loved it, including myself. creep... a classic, waterfalls.. amazing... my favorite? Red Light Special - what a bunch of freaks!

Now... what are you waiting for? Go Link Up!!

Boudoir Photos

Alright, alright... leave me alone about it - here they are!

Obviously I'm not sharing them all with you, and if my banner isn't sample enough, here are some other photos from my boudoir photo shoot.

A few fun facts, I did this shoot with Krysten, our hair and make-up were done by a very talented lady by the name of Steph Vick, and the boudoir session itself was done by the talented Britt of Render Photography.

Now... what to do with all these pictures!?

Random v.11.6

  • Want to hear something super awesome but super lame at the same time?  I deleted my account with myspace yesterday.  LOL.. yeah, I still had one.
  • The smell of Cheetos reminds me of being little - on Sunday's we'd go bowling as a family.  I'd always beg my parents for the 10 or 15 cents it took to buy a bag of Cheetos from the vending machine... so ever since then, opening a bag and smelling them takes me back to the bowling alley.  It's one of my favorite smells, my favorite memories, and one of my favorite snacks.
  • I've deleted the link to my bog from both Facebook and Twitter - the cons of working with family (who have both) and having many changes at work make you want to write angry blogs.
  • I'm left handed.
  • I love Mexican food; I want to travel {back} to Mexico and try the authentic stuff!
  • I'm turning 30 in 37 days; on a Friday.  What should I do that won't break the bank?
  • I want to marry Steve and spend the rest of my life with him (I think of this every time Beyonce comes on singing "Single Ladies").  I'm also head over heels in love with the guy!
  • I don't want kids.
  • I want to take a trip!
  • I have a Type A personality
  • I'm addicted to Facebook lately.
  • The single most popular image on my blog is this one:
    because people Google the exact words "Fish with Arms"  What goes on in this world?
  • I posted on facebook a couple weeks ago that I went to the ATM to deposit a rebate check and I didn't need an envelope, it just took the check, scanned it, and told ME how much it was for.  Neat.  Last night I went to Old Navy and was given the option to have a printed receipt or have it emailed to me.  I'm already on their mailing list (for coupons)... so why not?  The world is advancing... and I fear as I approach 30, I'm not ready for it.

That's all.

{80's} Tubular Tuesdays Music Linkup


Geez - I don't even know where to start here... While I was born in 1981, I still have LOTS of music memories and songs that I'd still, to this day, jam out to!  Debbie Gibson, Madonna, Rick Astley, Tiffany, Cyndi Lauper... oh, the 80's!

I LOVED Madonna in the 80's (and 90's and so on)... but in the 80's she had balls and wasn't afraid to discover herself and turn a few heads in the process.  I have two songs by Madonna here, Borderline and Cherish.  Two of the songs I remember most by her in the 80's.
Borderline... I LOVE this video, I loved being a little girl and watching her spray paint all over the wall!  That being said, this song was released in 1984, which would make me 3... why on Earth would I remember this AND why would I love watching her spray paint the walls.  I loved watching her get her photos taken, and I LOVED her clothes!  I know, right?!

Cherish was such a neat video to me as well... mermaids, B&W filming, not to mention how beautiful she is in this video!  I was sure this was a 90's song, but it was released in 1989, so it makes the 80's cut.  I remember singing along to every word of this song as well... from the TOP of my lungs.  I really thought I was the best singer in the world when I was little... true or not, we may never know!

Next up is probably one of my favorite 80's songs - Tainted Love by Soft Cell.  I hadn't seen this video before today, and it's fucking weird... so if you listen, close your eyes and don't watch.  I have no idea why this is my favorite 80's song other than the fact that I LOVE the way it makes me feel and it's soooo under rated.

Any little girl who grew up in the 80's fell in love with at least ONE song by Debbie Gibson... she was ALL THE RAGE!  Only In My Dreams was my favorite - though... I remember loving the entire A Side of the cassette tape (yep, I went there!)

These days, the Rick Roll is all the rage, but it's all the rage for a reason - Rick Astley was amazing for his time.  I had this tape and I'd listen to that thing OVER AND OVER... my mom still has the same tape we had in the 80's and every now and again she'll pop it in (she especially loved to play it randomly on the weekends when I still lived there) - I'm not giving you the Rick Roll song today, but rather my favorite, Together Forever.

Lastly, rounding up the 80's with his bleached torn jeans and badass leather jacket is George Michael because, seriously, who doesn't jam out with their guitar right next to the jukebox?!  Faith is one of those classic songs that you hear in random places and just start dancing - no?  just me?  crap.

Now, go link up!

Banner 11.5.11

I guess this also serves as a little glimpse into my boudoir shots...

I'm not pleased with the sizing of the banner online, but I couldn't get it to upload, so I had to throw it in picasa web and then paste the url... I may try playing with it again tomorrow to see if I can't fix it.

Scarf Swap

I don't know if I ever even mentioned that I signed up for a scarf swap hosted by Krysten - well the final link up is here and all packages should have been received by now.

I was paired up with a fellow Angela (who also happens to have a boy named Steve) and since I've had the link to her blog, I've had a new blog to read (and one I really enjoy) - which is probably the best part of these swaps that Krysten hosts.

Anyhow - I got my package a few days ago - the only 'rules' were it had to include a scarf and the package had to be worth $25-$30.
here is what I received:
Super cute little bowl/dish

The perfect size and a wonderful color
Yellow scarf - it's super long, I had a hard time showcasing it.

I feel like it looks orange here, it's not, it's Yellow.
I love everything, thank you so much Angela!

I hope she likes the stuff I sent her as well - even though she already told me she does! :)

Can't wait for the next swap - I have a feeling its becoming a seasonal thing, eh Krysten?

(PS - I got my boudoir pics... more to come on that soon)

Costumes, Halloween, and Music... OH MY!

Wanted to share a few things:
First, date night to The Oceanaire last Thursday - While the food was amazing, we looked way better than amazing!

Second, my Halloween costume:
What am I, you ask?  I'm a HUGE mustache!

We've got a flapper, a zombie something, Static cling, Black Swan, and a Dexter Kill Table victim.  (plus some other random's)
The theme of the Halloween party was Dexter - so the hosts were Dexter himself, and a kill table victim, which was basically Steph wrapped up in plastic wrap.  It was pretty amazing!  My mustache?  I'm very intrigued by this trend of mustache stuff - mustache necklaces, drawings on fingers, t-shirtsfurniture, I just don't get it.  Seriously, that's just a small sample - if you google the words "mustache trend" you'll find coffee mugs, pacifiers for babies... it's crazy.  Why are mustaches so 'in' right now?  Anyhow - being that I didn't (and still don't) 'get it'.. I decided why not be something super awesome for Halloween?!  So I took a piece of black felt and folded it in half, I took a fabric pencil and drew out half the shape of a mustache and then cut... I took a white full bodysuit (made for painting or other home projects) and sewed the mustache to it.  Costume... Done.
I was a top finalist in the costume contest but did not win.  The black swan did.  I personally thought the kill table victim should have won - for anyone who watches Dexter, she was on the money!

Third - Halloween night:
Our front stoop
We had a lot of trick-or-treaters, this being the first year at this house, we weren't sure how many we'd have.  Steve was being a pessimist and I (the eternal optimist) was doing what I do best.  I bought 4 lbs. of candy!  We didn't get rid of it all, but we had a great turn out and I LOVED everything about Halloween night.  The kids were SO polite Thank you, Have a nice night, Happy Halloween - it was wonderful.  I can't wait for next year, I'm so going to dress up for answering the door!  Anoka has brought out my Halloween spirit!

Fourth - the music link up I did yesterday, I failed to post the important details - it started yesterday and will run every Tuesday until December 6th.  Each week has a theme:

November 8th *** 80s
November 15th *** 90s
November 22nd *** 00s
November 29th *** Current
December 6th *** Bonus Week: Soundtracks

Lastly, a picture of my cat I took one morning while eating breakfast, straight out of the camera - tell me how it makes you feel?

{Oldies} Tubular Tuesdays Music Linkup


So, the idea of this linkup really excited me... a way to take a look through all your music and remember the times in your life that shaped who you are and the music that was playing in the background.  Krystal and Jen are hosting this Tuesday Linkup for the next several weeks, so it's not too late to join in and play along!  Each Tuesday, from today until December 6th, has a different theme.  This weeks theme is Oldies (Anything 1979 or earlier).  After putting the list together, I realize that most of my picks are slower songs.

So Oldies... I was born in 1981, so pre-1979 doesn't have any memories of the things going on in my life... but I do love me some old songs!  A couple of my favorites:
I absolutely LOVE Etta James, specifically the song At Last.  When no one is watching, I WAIL thing song at the TOP of my lungs (...and I obviously sound JUST like Ms. James, herself).  There is nothing magical about this song as far as why or how I know it - I heard it once, and fell in love; it's been one of my favorites ever since.

I think I mentioned on a different music post that I love the song Imagine by John Lennon.  It's a magical and powerful song to me.. simply put.

Anyone who says Queen isn't talented has NO idea what talent is.  I first heard this song, as I'm sure most people my age, in the movie Wayne's World, I specifically love the part where they all begin headbanging!  Anyhow, ever since then, when I hear this song, I think of that movie.  It's a great song, and it's fun!

The last song I'll list here is a faster, groovier song... it's a dance song, about a dance... a little ditty called The Locomotion.  If you don't sing along to this, you're just a party pooper!
