A Day in the Life of My Brain

Don’t Be Fooled by the Rocks
Most of you have seen this already, but I felt this particular story was worth posting.

JLo was on "Good Morning America" yesterday to talk about how she’s training for the 22nd Annual Malibu Triathlon. Some crew on the set of the morning show told MSNBC's The Scoop that JLo just doesn't understand why everyone is talking about "that swimmer" and not about her! The crew went on to say, “She couldn’t come up with (eight-time gold-medal winner Michael) Phelps’ name, and then she yammered on about how she was the one training for a triathlon just six months after giving birth, and how that was the big story right now, not ‘the swimmer.’ ”

The genius of this is that you know the media will be all over this silliness, and in two months we'll be hearing all about how JLo raised social consciousness for the triathlon and is the new ambassador, and blah, blah, blah.

And hey – if triathlon will open its wide forgiving arms to a slow poke lazy bones like me, then by all means JLo, jump in. But be careful – I hear HUGE egos sink in the swim.

And for extra laughs, Google the video of her at the Self Magazine shoot. Trust me on this one.

Chicago (land area) got its first Sonic!

I know – kinda crazy that, for a city that has a McDonald’s every corner not already inhabited by Starbucks, we didn’t have a Sonic.

And to be fair, it’s not really in Chicago – it’s actually in Aurora which is WAY far away from Chicago.

But guess who's got a meeting in Aurora on Thursday?!?!

It’s me, bitches!

I've already got Sonic fairies dancing in my head….

This morning I woke up and, while making myself a third bowl of Raisen Bran, some flakes jumped RIGHT out 'da bowl and onto the floor.

I looked down, shrugged and said, "Eh, I'll get it later...there's enough down there that I won't step on them."

Seven minutes later, I was crunching right across the Bran Flake graveyard.

Aaaaand THAT pretty much summed up the rest of the day.

Put the Mic Down
No matter who it is, or what song they do – I get painfully embarrassed for people that karaoke. Like, I openly cringe. *Shudder*

Does anyone else watch “Generation Kill?” Love it. Have to watch each episode twice just to follow, but am addicted.

And Brad Colbert?

Sure, he can’t act worth shit, but I’d hit that eight ways till next Tuesday.

(awkward pause.....)


What does that even mean?!?!?

Eh, I don’t know.

It just sounded funny in my head.

But yeah, I would.

Hahahaha, perfect way to start my morning. Thank:)

I have never understood karaoke. I am too painfully self aware to enjoy something like that, or enjoy it while watching someone else. It makes me squirmy.

Cheese Coney with Tater Tots and a Cherry Limeade!!

Do it. Do it.

I had the Fried Ice Cream Blast the other night... delish.

Kathleen said...

I bet with training, jlo could be fast on the bike with that big booty of hers!

Peach ice tea at Sonic is the best!

The Clyde said...

And Orland Park got a FATBURGER!!

"I chill at White Castle 'cause it's the best/But I fly at Fatburger when I'm way out west!"

Flatman said...

Chili Cheese tots with a coke or a chocolate shake. mmmm sonic, we get the commercials up here in WI but they are just a tease. The closest I guess is near you but before it was IA!

mmmm cheesey tots mmmmm


I saw the scarf thing on the way to Harvard on Tuesday! Ugg boots, short shorts, tank top and a puffy white winter scarf! Actually I saw her on the train so she could have been bi-polar or something

JLo interview is hilarious. Oh she is s down to earth... right. (enter smirk)

I think I'm missing out...I've never tried Sonic.

Prin said...

lol I love a day in your brain's life. It's like mine, only with more optimism, bran and exercise. :D

Steve Stenzel said...

OMG. J-Lo can kiss it.

Thea said...

That is hilarious. My BF and I JOKE about "free passes" too. A couple on my list....Jason Statham and Vin Diesel.

Never ate Sonic but the smells that come from there are luring. I have a thing for McDonald's burgers and nuggets. Yummmm.

Sept 21- my first marathon Boulder Backroads Marathon. Woo hoo!

Thea said...

BTW a woman from my trail running group made a comment last night how JLo was running the same tri as her. I had the privilege of letting her know all about msnbc and self mag interview. We had a good time laughing. What a joke....

Liz said...

By the way, I meant to tell you I'm glad I found your blog.

I think we are kindred spirits: the love food, the love of profanity, and a little lazy.
