This-n-That Thursday

Mindless drivel:
  • I checked out a large print book from the library last week. I love it.
  • I started P90X yesterday. I think I may die.
  • I really do not like Holly Hunter's voice.
  • There is a black bear on the loose near here.
  • I wish I understood soccer.
  • I signed up to run another half marathon this Sunday. I ain't gonna make it.
  • I love my little condo.
  • I also love the farmers' market near here.
  • People keep telling my baby boy he looks like Joran van der Sloot. He actually does a little...
  • I want the new iPhone but my current one is perfectly fine.
  • I think that Kristin Chenoweth is the cutest thing ever.
  • Why do I have teenage blemishes on my 50 year-old face?
  • I want to ride on the Orient Express.

Good for you - doing the P90X (I think I got the name this time!). Keep it up!

Good luck on the marathon. You did it once, you can do it again!

Grandmother said...

So the P90X starts right out hard, huh? I ran a marathon last year to celebrate my retirement. I wanted to do something I'd never done before. I also thought I was going to die! But did end up loving running. Good luck.

I've heard that P90X is tough, but I haven't tried it. And I don't follow or care for soccer myself. And I know what you mean about wanting the latest and greatest gadget even when the one you have is just fine.

I'm hearing you with the menopausal acne - wtf??? I don't remember my mom getting this. It so sucks.

Keetha said...

I don't get soccer, either, but I'm really okay with it. It's enough that it makes so many other people happy.

Keep me posted on the P90X!

It seems like the newest books at our library are large-print.

P90X-- tempted, but since I am still hiding from Jillian, I don't figure I should fork out the money for something new. You HAVE to keep us posted!
LOVE Kristin Chenoweth. The first time I saw her was on the Music Man with Ferris Bueller ;-)
I'm blemishing too!! What is THAT about?!

And soccer? Just go. Sit at game after game and cheer at the wrong times and get angry when you're not supposed to and one day it will all just click.
Or not.

Delora said...

Yeah for you with the P90X -- even though I'm not exactly sure what that is!

Sassy said...

WOW! You are my idol....P90X and a marathon...you so IMPRESS me!!! Our middle son LOVES Kristen...she is a doll! I'll bet your condo is amazing....I am so happy you love your new digs...
GOOD LUCK.....YES YOU CAN DO IT!!! And you'll do GREAT!

Woo hoo Mama for starting that workout that wants to kill everyone in it's path!!! You can do it. Mmmmm...Farmer's Markets...love them. The Orient Express...that would def be fun...and ye, he does look like that poor soul, but definitely doesn't act like him!! Thank God for that!

TSannie said...

Perhaps you have a little too much time on your hands...perhaps? :)

These Nine Acres said...

My husband and son started P90X too. Not me, however. I am smarter than that. People tell me my son looks like one of the Hanson brothers.

Snooty Primadona said...

You just kill me! I just love Thursdays over here. Always entertaining.

Kristin Chenoweth is the cutest thing ever. Have you seen her in RV and Four Christmases? She's hilarious!

The blemishes are a menopause thing, I think. I had them too but they went away the pause went away.

I'll go with you when you decide to take that trip on the Orient Express!!!

Both of my kids played soccer & I still don't understand it...

big hair envy said...

If it makes you feel any better, I, too, have had a face full of zits this week. What's THAT about?

P90X? Have you bought your Blog Fest bikini? (I haven't been to the gym since March:/)

Note to Self: Call Soup regarding my muumuu.

I have one of the Il Divo men living here.

Welcome to the LARGE PRINT club.

Daryl said...

Ms Chenoweth is not all that, trust me.

I signed up to watch a marathon ...

Country Girl said...

Is it hot and humid up there? I ask because I get blemishes on my forehead when it's muggy outside.

You are going to be one buff mama with the P90X.

Lisa said...

hmmmm? interesting. Would you like to lie down on my couch and let's talk about all of this. I don't drink wine, but I bet I can find you a bottle if you want some!
Come on over and besides the weather is much better here, but just hotter.

Debbie said...

Keep us posted on the P90X. No way I'd attempt it. Augie does kind of look like him!

I'm happy you are happy :)

FM90PX - Please do a post on this and tell us what it entails. When I say us I mean me, because evidently I'm the only one who hasn't heard.

This week at work, I changed the font on my computer to one of those HUGE sizes for old people. Plus I wear reading glasses. Now I must go cry.

Diane said...

My skin is all over the place... I'm counting my blessings that I don't have chin hair on top of it.... just hot flashes.

I love Holly Hunter's voice!

Gayle said...

Oh my! I am soccer ignorant too! I collect large print books for my mom, I'm not quite there yet. ;) Farmers markets are da bomb!
