Just a little reminder for me: Bennett and I were doing the 30 day shred by Jillian Michaels workout. Yesterday was the 7th day in a row I’d done it; Bennett did it once and he cannot walk today. Hehe. 🙂
So, as I was doing what I do on Sundays, I was looking at people.com, and came across a story about Jessica Simpson, and her weight. People calling her fat? Are you serious? Jessica Simpson fat? This is what her sister said:
Ashlee Simpson-Wentz says people should leave her older sister Jessica alone. “I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister’s weight,” Ashlee, 24, writes on her blog after photos appeared of Jessica, 28, at the Radio 99.9 Kiss Country’s annual Chili Cookoff on Sunday in Pembroke Pines, Fla. Under the headline, “Since when did a woman’s weight become newsworthy,” Ashlee says: “A week after the inauguration and with such a feeling of hope in the air for our country, I find it completely embarrassing and belittling to all women to read about a woman’s weight or figure.” She adds: “All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you’re a celebrity, there shouldn’t be a different standard.” The singer/actress says she wonders if people would make the same remarks to a wife, daughter, mother, grandmother or friend. “I seriously doubt it,” she says. “How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure? Now can we focus on the things that really matter.”
There are so many things that are going on right now, and it really pisses me off that people are concerned with a woman’s weight. I just don’t understand why men aren’t put under the same glass as women. WE are expected to diet and exercise and be skeleton skinny; but yet it’s ok for a man to put on weight and not be criticized for it.
I have had an obsession with my weight since high school. This is not a secret to anyone, so I feel ok sharing it with everyone. It has gotten worse since I’ve gotten older, because it has gotten harder to diet and exercise with everything going on in the adult world, not to mention the worry about fitting into and looking great in a wedding dress.
It’s time consuming and unfair. If the girl gains a little weight, so be it; It would be so nice to look like her, even a little bit.
Anyway, that’s my rant for the day. I am done now. Happy super bowl sunday!
Well I’m mixin it up a little bit; I switched schedules, so Bennett and I can finally join our church tomorrow. And have found out that I am definitely getting the short end of the stick. Working Saturdays is sooo much better than working on Sundays. First of all, there is someone here most of the morning to help, but mostly to talk to. Makes the day go by so much faster, because see it’s already 1, and I’m just now writing you. Well that’s really the only reason I have to why Saturday is better than Sunday. Ok, well I have another one; having split off days really isn’t so bad. It will make next week go by quicker, and this week seem not as long.
Anyway, so as I was driving home on Thursday, I was listening to the radio, and I texted in to win tickets to see Lucinda Williams on February 27th. And wouldn’t you know it, I actually won them. I have never won anything off the radio before; I was excited, and it made that god-awful day a little better.
I keep trying to think of all the things I’ve won during my life; there’s that, I won a photo package from my sorority, umm..I think that’s about it. Nothing super exciting. I’ve won bets here and there, the most recent making Bennett buy my lunch yesterday, but nothing else of super coolness.
So I guess that’s all for now. We’re meeting D&C for some Saturday afternoon bowling after work and I can’t wait to leave!
I have never had a job that didn’t involve dealing with the public. The job that broke me and made me start hating people was waiting tables. You have all these people who think either they are much better than you, and all these people who just suck, i.e. talking on the phone, tipping badly, etc.
But nothing could prepare me for the world of truck rental. I actually had some guy tell me today that his time was worth more than my time. I wanted nothing more than to hang up on this asshole. Let me set the scene: He had a reservation for 4:30 at our location in Jasper, an agent, and these locations aren’t true truck rental locations, they are simply that; agents. They have their own business and run the truck rental on the side. Anyway, he shows up to pick up his truck at 3:30, an hour before he was supposed to be there. So the people who run the place weren’t there.
He calls me to complain. “I drove 10 extra miles to use you guys instead of U-haul.” “My time is worth more than your time deary.” “I can’t stand here and wait for you people to get your shit together.” “This place doesn’t even look legit.”
I kid you not. This guy said all of this, word for word. Sometimes I really want to just say to these people, then go to U-haul, and I hope your sorry ass ’94 Ford truck breaks down on the side of the road.
And the bad thing about these kind of people, is that it tends to ruin your mood for the rest of the day, forcing you to yell at people all the way home. People who ride their brakes down 65, people who think they’re so important that they just cut everyone off. I have news for some of these people: you are not that important. You’re just not.
So Bennett went to Montgomery all weekend, and I stayed at home. I was supposed to go to Erica’s, but she canceled due to baby and hubby sickness….
Basically all I did this weekend was watch TV. Below are some of my evaluations of what is on TV nowadays.
Real Housewives of Orange County: I wouldn’t be able to stand one conversation with any of these women. Never seen a bigger bunch of drama queens in my life…especially the one that looks like a horse…can’t remember her name. Oh and the one who got all upset because her son got a tattoo on the inside of his lip. Never would have known, but for some reason it made her a bad mother.
Real Housewives of New York: Not much better. The only one on here that really drives me crazy is Alex. She feels the need to bring her husband everywhere, even to girl’s night. And she calls that a good marriage; that he has to follow her around everywhere. I always thought a good marriage involved some trust….obviously not if you live in New York though.
The Soup: This show is hilarious.
Chelsea Handler Show: Love her, she is my idol.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians: An entertaining show. I wouldn’t say that I would never watch it again, but only if there is nothing else to watch…maybe if I only had the choice between Real Housewives and Living Lohan and this show…then it would win out.
Man vs. Food: This guy’s job is to roam around and eat. Who wouldn’t want this job? He goes to places that have challenges (7 pound hamburger, eating 6 atomic wings, 20 tacos or something). Pretty good show; the only one I’ve seen him finish is the atomic wings. Oh and there was one with a giant pizza. I could so do that one, especially since the dude got a partner.
I think that these were the highlight TV shows…I watched some movies… John Tucker Must Die (yuck), Devil Wears Prada (love it), and I bought a new one at Target yesterday solely because it was only $13, 27 Dresses (loved it!).
Hopefully I won’t have one of these weekends again, because I was bored.
