Migraines, Lasers, and DWTS

I had to pick up my sister from the ER this morning.  She is fine.  She went in for a migraine.  I get that.  Migraines hurt. But sometimes I want to tell her to suck it up.  So if you are reading this sis, suck it up!!!  ;)  You know I love you.
Last night I dreamed I had a convertible.  A convertible people.  And all I can think of is the fact that it wasn't red.  What the heck is that about?  It was a convertible.I am going to Zumba today.  And I am excited.  Excited.  To exercise.  Part of it is hey I paid up front for this.  And the other part is I actually like it.  My mom and I made shirts.  I will have to post them.My mom gave Rich a laser pointer and flashlight combo for his birthday.  We use it to torture play with the cat.  I had that silly beast jumping up the walls last night.   The cat.  Stay with me.I am following Ralph Macchio on Twitter now.  He shared a picture of him and Karina before they went on.  This led me to Karina's page.  She had a picture of her own …

Generation X

If you were born after 1963 and before 1982 you are a gen X.  You come from a long line of great kids.  Our parents could let us play outside.  All day long.  UNSUPERVISED.  We walked to school.  We went to the park.  BY OURSELVES.  Not only that some great movies were made.

"Does Barry Manillow know you raid his wardrobe?"
"Don't mess with the bull young man.  You'll get the horns."

The Breakfast Club is probably my favorite movie out of all those Brat Packer movies.  And the most awesome thing about it, is it is still true today.  All those classes still exist.  The Princess, The Athlete, The Brain, The Basket Case, and The Criminal.

Generation X had some good moments.  But we also made some poor choices...
Who told us this was a good way to wear our hair?  Raise your hand if you could ride a roller coaster and come off it with not a hair out of place?  No?   Just me?

We saw real tragedy for the first time in our lives.

DWTS Season 12?

All day long I watched the clock with great anticipation.  I was like a kid waiting for dark to come so I could finally see the fireworks.  Is it 8 o'clock yet!?  I made sure dishes were done and Ryan was in bed in a timely manner.  I had time to spare.  Come on 8 o'clock!  And finally the hour arrives.  I get my list out with all their names and partners since I don't know what their number will be.  I quickly write them down as they descend the stairs.   The dances tonight are: The Foxtrot and The Cha Cha Cha.

Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas 1-800-868-3401  "Yes, I kissed Joe Jonas.  And it didn't suck."
Chelsea Kane is adorable.  She fell a couple of times in rehearsal--most of them do. She and Mark danced the Foxtrot. She did a  good job and I do see potential with her.  She will also most definitely have the younger (male) votes.

Len said they were a young fresh couple and that they started out like Peter, Paul and Mary turned Blacked Eyed Peas.  There was a l…

I've Got A Secret

I really don't have a secret, but I do have something to share!  I have the sweetest bloggy friend who lives right in my computer.  Okay she really lives in New York City.  Despite living in such a big city, Nikki lives the simple life.  And by simple, I really mean simple.  She loves to make everything.  From fabulous foods, to her own laundry soap, shampoo, and even lotions!  I wish I would be so willing to do the things she does.  But the fact is, I am not.  Which is why it is so great that she is offering to share a bit of her talents with all of you.

She and her mom make soaps.  That's their stuff right there.  They call themselves, "Olive Your Beeswax."  I have actually been lucky enough to try her soap once before.  The first time was because I won it.  This time is because she asked me to do a review and offered a giveaway. 

The soap I tried this time has aloe and eucalyptus in it.  The eucalyptus is great for fighting the cold/flu and the aloe is awesome for …


Over the weekend, I was to take part in an expo for the city.  It is an annual thing for all the classes the community has to offer.  From the teeniest ballerinas to all things Senior.  Including "Zumba Gold."  Zumba Gold is for the Senior variety.  Do not be fooled by the name.  You still sweat and burn between 500 and 700 calories.  The differences are:  no jumping and it is 15 minutes shorter than a regular Zumba class.  Also the instructor is to stop between each song and remind the ladies to drink and she always makes sure everyone is okay.  Well, it rained Saturday...kind of.  Mostly in the morning.  Which meant the activities were moved inside.  However, there just wasn't room for the amount of people that were there.  And the Zumba demo was canceled.  Oh well.

The weekend wasn't a total rain out.  We had our annual "combined" March birthdays celebrations.  We have four birthdays in March....five if you count my cousin.  But he got his own birthday p…
