At first, I though that the people in the class left the space directly in front of the instructor for Lady Hector. Then, I remembered that normal people don't stand there. duh.
The instructor brought it up and we made a couple jokes. My friend did a pretty good impression of her little dance that made the instructor laugh. so awesome.
We even stopped by the front desk and tried to take back our earlier complaints. Our main concern was that we didn't want the instructor to be blamed for low class attendance for Lady Hector. Turns out her real name is Maria.
Hopefully she'll be back next week. Awesome!

Twice in the past week there has been a lady in my line of sight between me and the instructor doing something completely, 100% different from the instructor. I have a hard enough time staying on task as it is, but it is way hard to pay attention with crazy times happening right next to me. Not to mention that the crazy times lady was a granola type who didn't shave her long black armpit hair...
I just can't figure out why someone would want to come into class if they aren't going to follow the class?? Any suggestions out there? so weird.

I can't weigh in because I've been having all sorts of tummy issues and I mean all sorts of tummy issues. It's pretty gross actually. After I had such a good week last time, I was really dreading today's meeting and I decided not to get myself down by seeing the scale go up.
I'm going back to the drawing board and trying to even everything out. I really hope that I can post good results next week. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

There was a long line of other supposed VIPs to get in, but it was worth it. I can finally get my hands on all the handmade, all natural body products I need. I used to order everything online, but since I really love their body butters, bath melts and soaps--I had to stop because they couldn't send them in the hot summer months. I also really like their bath bombs.

Problem solved! I just happened across a really cool website that talks about all the newest purses called The Bag Snob. She posts lots of pictures, talks about the size and features of each. It's as if she is in the same room with you.
My favorite by far is the Chanel Bowler. so hot, so awesome

If you're like me, you are constantly wondering how to squeeze a little more glam-our in our lives. Who better to learn from than the most glamorous man ever? LIBERACE!
In fact, the first sentence on the Liberace Museum's website is: "For decades, Liberace was known for his music, candelabra, charisma, rhinestones and dazzle."
If you want some old fashioned razzle dazzle during your next trip to Las Vegas, then you should definitely visit the Liberace Museum that displays some absolutely fantabulous capes, sparkly outfits and jewelry. They are open Tues-Sat. 10-5 and Sun. 12-4. If you want more information, you can go to their website: http://www.liberace.org/
In all seriousness, this is a much better display than the Elvis-o-Rama that is scheduled to go away soon. See? You learn something awesome every day.

Think about it, people. Have I ever brought a pie in to work to share? Have I ever made you a pie for your birthday? The answer is no. I just can't seem to get it right--too tough, chewy, not flaky, soggy the list goes on and on.
Well, we tasted the pies today, and crust is really good. Believe me, I'm as shocked as you are. You want to know the secret? Prebaking the pie crust in two stages: first, prebake it most of the way and second, brush some egg whites over it to cover up all the fork prong makes and return it to the oven for 2 minutes.
Voila! Perfect results every time! Just let me know when you folks want a pie or the whole recipe. I also figured out the fast way to weave a lattice top crust. Hip Hip Hooray!!

Silence was easier than I imagined it would be. It gave me plenty of time to think about changes that I need to make in my life. I can't even put into words the joy and peace of taking some time away to sort things out and strengthen my Catholic faith.
Don't worry! I will be continuing with the blog. For those of you who know me, you just never know the adventures I go on, so this is no different. Another day, more awesome craziness!
The picture below shows a small part of the beautifull grounds and gardens at the Abbey. They had a long Way of the Cross Park with each of the Stations of the Cross. I made sure to go out for walks so I could get my steps in--I wore my bodybugg the whole time!

Here are some of my favorite insomnia cures I found and my general reactions:
1. Rub your temple with cat fat. (WTF? Where do you get cat fat? I think killing an innocent kitty would keep me up for different reasons)
2. Eat chicken cooked with milkweed. (Isn't milkweed poisonous? so weird)
3. Smoke a mixture of black tobacco, toad powder, and honey. (My personal fave)
Given the choice between kitty butchering, putting myself to sleep permanently and smoking something--I choose...(drumroll please).....SMOKE SOMETHING INVOLVING TOADS!
As a side note, late night infomercials are soooo awesome. Currently, I am watching a fantabulous commercial for a Time Life treasury of 70s music hosted by Peter Fonda. Operators are standing by right now for my call!!

I also think that I'm paying for my chocolate cake party more than a week ago. I've noticed that it takes two weeks for my chickens to come home to roost (as Grandma always says). In my defense, the chocolate cake party was totally freakin' awesome. You wanna know why? Rocky road ice cream was also invited. Okay, I better stop now before I break out some more invitations.
On the positive side, I am back on track and ready to get on the straight and narrow. My goal is to get my second fuzzy star by the end of the month--that means 20 pounds. Wish me luck!

Trust me, it's worth the visit. Tell me it's not your favorite story ever, I dare you.

Here's the link: http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_29436,00.html
If for some reason that doesn't work, go to the food network website and search for "Devil's Food Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Icing" from Emeril Lagasse.
Linda Hogan was getting down with her bad cougar self on every young blond dude that walked by--quite the display. Somebody hit the open bar pretty hard. You know, when there is an open bar you always want somebody to go crazy to make the party fun, but you neeeever want to be that person making an arse out of themselves--especially with camera crews lurking about. Thanks, Linda!
We were invited by a nice couple to join them in their cabana, so it was pretty awesome people watching. For the longest time, I couldn't figure out where people were going because they kept walking around and around the pool area. My friend explained to me that they weren't going anywhere, they just wanted to be seen. Boy, am I a crappy social climber. Oh well, at least my boobs are real and I am going home with my husband. Eat your heart out, skanks!
The other great part of the night was running into my former boss who looked more than a little disappointed that we were also invited. tee hee You're not so special after all.
In case you bitches care, you can see a bunch of pictures on one of my favorite blogs Dlisted: http://www.dlisted.com/
I'm glad we went, but once you get to see the celebs in person you realize how tiny they really are. Once again, fantasy beats reality every time. Come party in Vegas with skanks, woo-hoo!
