Electronic Handheld Yahtzee....Ew

My family has this electronic handheld Yahtzee game that must have been a stocking stuffer from a Christmas ages ago. I'm surprised this thing is still around because normally gifts like that lose their flavor after a month and find themselves sitting battery-less at the bottom of the big black bin outside. Oh, but not this one, it has found a special place in our home that nothing else can fill....bathroom entertainment.

Yes, you heard me right, it's home sits right on top of my toilet (for easy access I guess). I don't know how it got there--it DEFINITELY wasn't me. But occasionally I'll be sitting in the living room and I'll hear the very distinctive beeping of that toy and immediately know--unfortunately--that someone is going at it in there. I don't know how many germs are living on that thing and I don't want to know. I might have to don a radioactive suit--with grabbing tongs, of course--and dispose of it one night.

Yes, I know I'm revealing embarrassing tidbits about my family (what else is blogging good for than to parade your dirty laundry for all your friends and blog stalkers to see?) The most embarrassing part of this story: I personally am guilty of using that...thing. But only once--I had to see what all the fuss was about. Surprisingly, I found it very convenient and distracting!


I stole this from a friend's facebook page, but I thought it was hilarious. So those facebookers out there all know that some of the ads are hilarious, irrelevant and borderline ridiculous. Well this one I got a kick out of.

After reading about it for a few months, I finally depotted all my MAC eyeshadows! I told my friend Alex about it and she was just so excited about it, that I finally did it. We both depotted ours a few weeks ago and I absolutely LOVE it. I was worried I miss having them in their own cute containers, but now all my eyeshadows are in the same place so I can just see all my colors at once and now I actually use ones that I'd forgotten about.

The best part? Well, you can Back-2-Mac six empty containers and if you return them to a Mac Pro Store (the Scottsdale or Biltmore stores), then you can get a free eyeshadow (normally you can only get a lipstick). I think I've gotten about 7 free eyeshadows from just depotting alone. And then you depot those free ones and it's a cycle that results in tons of free eyeshadow!

I helped my sister depot all hers and she told my cousins and now they all want to do it. I think we should have a depotting party and do it all together. It's really easy to do and so worth it. So to all you cousins out there who want to do this, when do you want to get together?

Rule Breaker

Is it bad that I know panty lines are the #1 fashion DON'T, yet I totally disregard the rule when I go to the gym? I just don't care..and the alternative is quite uncomfortable. I work out to feel the burn, not to feel an eternal wedgie.

Toucan Delight

I love my dad. He always full of the best, most hilarious quotes. Today's quote of the day happened after we went golfing. As tradition, after we golf he usually takes me to get a smoothie at Tropical Smoothie Cafe. We went through the drive thru and I told him I wanted a smoothie called a Toucan Delight.

Dad: "We'll have two cans of delight." Our order came up on the screen a second later.
Dad: "Oh...Toucan Delight....What's a Toucan?"
Me: "It's a bird."
Dad: Oh, you mean a tou-cun."

"Did You Get Attacked By a Rosebush or Something?"

Not exactly. The whole right side of my arm (and actually part of my head behind my ear) are covered in scratches. What caused it? A horrible rosebush pruning gone wrong? Nope. I actually was riding a naughty horse who wanted to go home and--as a result--backed me up into a pokey tree. Twice. But close enough, I guess.

Is that... Dr. O'Malley?

Anyone watch Grey's Anatomy? Know who Dr. George O'Malley is? I know, I know, you're saying "Awwww, I love George" as if he's some cute puppy with a giant bow around its neck.

Well, last week I was confronted with his face double in the form of my BodyCombat (a kick boxing class) instructor. I'm sorry but the face of GEORGE O'MALLEY is NOT what I want to work out to. If you had to work out to a Grey's Anatomy character, you want to work out to a McSteamy, not an O'Malley. Where did my hot-bodied Tony go? Or Jeanie--the awesomely fit, Japanese girl with the wicked British accent? I just couldn't get into this new guy! Every time I looked at him I saw the face of the man who used to fawn over Merideth in early seasons--neither endearing nor motivating...

While working today, I was confronted with a woman about a foot taller than me, which immediately reminded me of a conversation I had with a friend a while ago. Here are my opinions on the subject:

If you have fake boobs or recently got a boob job, don't lie about them! It's SOOOOO obvious what went on there. Really. You're lying to girls of all people; we've lived with them our whole lives. We can tell--even if they're just a "little bit" bigger. Trust me we can tell. Why get them (when obviously that's the sort of attention you want) and then lie about them to your friends. Please. No one's that big, perky, bouncy, round, etc. Maybe a few people are, but you definately weren't a few months ago. Instead, embrace them (but not literally, thank you very much)!

Moral of the story: Don't lie about it. It just makes you look that much MORE ridiculous.
