Johnny Depp vs Wichita....

Friday, November 11, 2011

What I wrote on Facebook earlier (is there a "reverse feed" from FB back to SP?):

This is sad... Two of my favorites at odds with each other. Sounds like Depp is going down.... don't be messin' with my town!

Wichita is ‘winning’ its feud with actor Johnny Depp, reports the Atlantic Wire | Have You Heard?

The Atlantic Wire, an online news aggregating branch of the Atlantic magazine, reports on the battle over how intelligent Wichita moviegoers are with a story headlined “Johnny Depp Thinks He’s Too Smart for Wichita.”


Sad.... just sad...

    Yea I know, I own like 3 or 4 of his movies and there's several more I want to at least watch before deciding whether or not to get those movies... I was newly married the first husband when "21 Jump Street" came out and it was on the newly formed FOX network - and was one of the first batch of TV shows that was closed captioned for the deaf/hard of hearing. So of course I had to go buy my TeleCaption II machine and ... discovered Johnny was cuuuuuuuuuute... (even forgot about Donny Osmond for awhile...ha!!).

I wonder if he pulled Wichita out of a hat because of the recent media attention on Tallgrass Film weekend?? (maybe he was chapped because Wichita didn't invite him? I dunno!).

Well will be interesting to see how this all shakes out, but that though occurred to me and it sorta rhymed (going down....dissin' town..).

Funny thing is I don't even live in Wichita proper (these days) - but I have at various times in the past, plus my grandparents lived here for most of 50 years before they died, so Wichita is just "home" to me.

    Gee.. I guess we are just a bunch of hicks...not smart enough to know a good movie. I think he just spoke before thinking about what he was saying, and just pulled Wichita out of a hat..could've been any midwestern town really. I still like him!

Awesome Carol from Wichita! And proud of it! LOL

Saturday Night's Not Alright for Shakin'

Sunday, November 06, 2011

Sorry, Elton John, it might be okay for fighting (although I'd disagree with that concept too, I guess I'm just disagreeable that way)... but we felt the earthquake up here this evening while I was doing my Sparking...and I've checked on FB as well, found a number of us in the Wichita/Sedgwick County metro also felt the earthquake. Epicenter was in Sparks, OK, as for now a 5.6. And I'm now finding out that they had one earlier in Okla about 2 am Saturday morning. I hadn't heard about it... will be checking my SparkOklahoma team soon.

In other hateful news of the night:

Basically - junk food will take over the brain just about as bad as addictive drugs will! NOOOO! but yes, deep down I know that has to be true. I know how crazy out of my mind I'll be hours after junking out on a tub of ice cream or a bag of cookies. That stuff is POISON and why am I so addicted to it?? So it's a tough one to go to battle with.

I'm sure there will be more on this later as the SparkCoaches read the news wire too... but this is just what was reported locally (on the McClatchy sp? newspaper chain.)..

I gotta go to bed....

    There sure have been a lot of earthquakes lately and here is one so close to home. I am so glad that there were no injuries or major damages.

As for the addictions, I think that can happen with just about anything. My particular bane is salt. I just love potato chips! We just have to be ever vigilant!

    We felt the earthquake allright..WEIRD!! It was a bit scary! I also saw the junk food thing! It hijacked my brain several years ago!! Luckily Sparks, fitness, and healthy eating has my brain now..THANK GOODNESS! I can't have junk food or I will get back to my old thinking.. I avoid it all as much as I can!

    Yikes! I know you must have been startled! I'm so glad everyone is safe and nothing serious happened with that earthquake! emoticon

    That was some crazy shaking last night--to feel it all the way in Wichita!
As for the junk food addiction-I believe it. That's why it's so hard to break free. But is it like other addictions where you need to stay away from it totally, or is it possible to have some without going overboard? Interesting emoticon

    I believe the addidion. I am additied to sugar. The only way is to go 'cold turkey' the way I did with cigarettes, some 30 yrs. ago!
I have been sugar-free 10 days now! Try it! After about a week you will have withdrawal symptoms.

Mocha Cottage Cheese

Thursday, November 03, 2011

Today, I finally made the Mocha Cottage Cheese recipe I've been admiring from Spark Recipes.

What I did different:
* used DandyLion (a non-caffeinated hot beverage made with dandelions, chicory, etc supposed to be good for you.), I would have made it with the instant coffee, only it was late in the afternoon and I don't need to stay up all night).
* used Stevia packet instead of Splenda packet, because Splenda is against my .... body, I guess, not really a religious issue or a political issue or whatever, I just don't like how I feel when I consume the stuff.
* I used a honey that was packed with the honeycomb. I guess it's "good for you" but I still am not used to having my tongue tripping over the little waxy bits from the honey comb. Next time I'm using the regular honey. On the positive side, I got it used up, so I won't have that sitting around. It's in a nice round jar so I can refill it with un-honeycombed honey next time (no crevices to make honey difficult to get out of in the upcoming colder months, the way Honey Bear containers do, where I feel like I've wasted half of the honey stuck inside all those little crevices.).
* I used a Ninja blender/smoothie maker thingy. I'm thinking I should have used a regular kitchen blender or Vita Mix or immersion blender.
* I added 1 tsp vanilla after the first taste because it seemed a little "too dry" (probably because of the waxy bits from the honeycomb?

Anyway, this is what it looked like!!

My DS said "Eww gross, Mom!" (he has braces on, and doubtless hit a waxy bit. I'll try it again when he forgets about it, using smooth honey....).

Haven't fed any to the DH yet.

Not sure if I will feed him any... I made a double recipe...but... not sure that I'll not eat it between now and then.

    Just tell 'em Halloween is over, it's not dog messes, it's chocolate pudding!!!! ;

Bon appeitit!

And my husband LOVED it ...especially the way I served it to him....licking the rubber scraper off while standing there in the kitchen, too lazy to scrape it out into a bowl for him... which, of course, grossed off the 13 year old, because his parents LIKE EACH OTHER.... hahahahaha!!

OH I'm still laughing....

I just saw the funniest video on my niece's Facebook page and had to share it with you. I couldn't seem to "share" it with the Facebook Page or Coach Nicole's page - guess because they are not considered "groups" or "individual friends". So I tracked it down elsewhere and found the link on YouTube:

You'll LOVE this!!

Affirmations and such...

Thursday, October 06, 2011

Why is it that when I (try to) say things like:

You Is Kind
You Is Smart
You is Important

(like from the book/movie "The Help"),

or really, any affirmation -

but in my mind, I want to translate and distort the message:

You is Fat
You is Lazy
You is Incompetent!

I need a brain transplant!!!

Philippians 4:8

8 Finally, brethren,
whatever things are true,
whatever things are noble,
whatever things are just,
whatever things are pure,
whatever things are lovely,
whatever things are of good report,
if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—
meditate on these things.

    I think most of us are guilty of the same behaviors. I know I am! Why is it so hard for me to think of myself as beautiful, but so easy to think of myself as a fat cow? Would God be okay with me thinking of myself that way? NO! If you figure out the answer, be sure to pass it on! ;-) I think LIFEWALK is right. Make it a habit to think positively about yourself and you'll come to believe it.
