Go Daddy-o!

Blogging live from AC via the celly. BBVD were fantastic. I’ve now confirmed that I have a suit/tie fetish. (hat optional). The auditorium wasn’t set up for dancing, so unfortunately Thor and I couldn’t show off our swing dance ‘skills.’

I’m up 100 thanks to a very hot roulette table. I had 5 numbers hit out of 6 spins. Then, they increased the minimum bet of the table to $25. I wisely decided to cash out.

I fully expect Thor to go missing during the night. 😉

As for me, I’ll be having sweet dreams of zoot suits and suspenders. Mmmmmm…

Thunderous Thursday!!!

(remember, exciting fake stuff is in pink and the truth is in black.)

I wore my pedometer all day today. It’s recommended that an adult take 10,000 steps per day — which roughly translates to 5 miles. Today’s grand total?


Less than half of the quota. That includes a .7 mile dog walk. But it doesn’t include my hour of rock climbing.

I may seem lazy and uninspired and promiscuous at times, but I’m pretty goal-oriented. And that 10,000 number…sheesh. I’m going to have to change some behaviors, I guess. Walks during lunch, maybe?

Thor’s favorite group, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, is performing at the Borgata tomorrow night, so we decided to spend this weekend in Atlantic City. Note: This text is in black…what fun! I’ll be sure to hit roulette tables, some strip clubs and maybe dabble in some craps.

We have a new radio station in town, Ben FM. It’s hook is that it plays anything it wants. Good ol’ Ben only tends to play the top 40 songs from each year going back 30 years though. The best aspects of it are that: 1) there are no annoying DJs yet. Eventually the usual DJs who get fired from every Philadelphia station will show up and ruin it. 2) You get a lot of very interesting song pairings. Today I heard George Michael’s “I want your sex” followed up by the Eagles’ “Hotel California.” A few weeks ago it was “Ramblin’ Man” followed up by “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.” Weird stuff.

Hm. Just realized that my archive dropdown doesn’t work. And I don’t have a hostess shot up. Will fix that.

Totally Tubular Tuesday!!!

Hey! Welcome to day two of my totally exciting blog!!! (Remember…truth is black…fake and exciting is in pink!)

A few weeks ago, I ‘attended’ a Gannett (my paper’s parent company) audio chat about Walking and Wellness. I mean ‘attend’ loosely. The audio stream was playing as I was working. Halfway through, they gave a secret phrase, and if you emailed that phrase to them, you’d get a free pedometer. Yeah. I know. Only geeks would do that.

My pedometer came today through inter-company mail, and it’s pretty cool. It’s a lot sturdier than the free one I got with the McDonald’s adult happy meal last year. And tonight I took Max for an 1803 step walk. The pedometer booklet recommends 10,000 steps per day. Geez. While on the walk, I heard somebody choking through their opened dining room window. I dropped the leash, dove through the window (I cannot be stopped by a flimsy screen) and performed the Heimlich maneuver on the 68 year old woman inside. She coughed up her chunk of angel food cake almost immediately. Check the papers tomorrow for the story.

I lifted this quiz from FoodieChickie’s blog, who took it from Dave’s blog. Dave has the same last name as my maiden name. Which is cool only to me.

2. Were you named after anyone? Some actress. nope
3. Do you wish on stars? Not anymore No need…my life is too exciting as is!

5. When did you last cry? I was a little weepy on our anniversary. When I got my sixth piercing. Damn, it hurt!
6. Do you like your handwriting? Absolutely not! It’s a sick cross between cursive and print, and it’s all over the place. Computers have ruined me. I don’t write. Instead, I cut letters out from newspapers and magazines and write letters ransom-note style
8. Any bad habits? Nailbiting. Procrastinating. Kicking off my shoes anywhere in the house and leaving them there. Laying along the yellow line on major highways, just for a rush
9. What is your most embarrassing CD on the shelf? The hipsters may laugh at my collection, but I wouldn’t deny owning any of them. Not even the entire New Kids on the Block Collection. The Spoken Kama Sutra
10. If you were another person, would YOU be friends w/you? Yes, although I’d have to put a bit of effort into it. Kim doesn’t really like to make the first phone call or ask to go out. She’s shy like that. Of course! I’m exciting!!!
11. Are you a daredevil? Moreso as I get older. Absolutely. I wouldn’t have appeared on Fear Factor if I wasn’t.

21. Have you ever been in a mosh pit? No. Yes, but I prefer crowdsurfing. Why be in the crowd when you can be on top?

33. How many people have a crush on you right now? Hopefully one, but I suspect two. I lost count. I’m that exciting!

58. Summer or Winter? Summer! Winter!
59. Hugs or Kisses? Sweet soft kisses…the kind where the gentleman gently holds my face in his hands before he moves closer. I prefer more exciting activities.
