Sometimes Brains are Inconvenient. (w/pics!)

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Sometimes having a brain is really inconvenient.

Examples of this over the last week or so:

Attempting to come up with a fun blog idea:



Folding laundry



To Breakfast, or not to Breakfast?



Time Travel



Chocolate Math

You Don't Have a Femullet, So Things Could Be Worse! (w/pics!)

Monday, October 31, 2011

Thursday was a really exciting day for me, but not in the way I'd hoped it would be...

I discovered on Tuesday that I procrastinated buying jeans and dress pants in a size 12 for so long that I'm actually a size TEN!!! As in 10!

My reward for getting back to a size 10 was to get one of my favorite hair cuts from college. My very favorite requires a LOT of upkeep, so I decided to go for my second favorite.

Unfortunately, the only picture I have of myself with that haircut is this one:

I love that picture, but it doesn't show much of the hair.

So after hours of browsing the intertubes I found THIS one:

It's perfect!
(But don't worry, I swear to never make that face. Well maybe if I have like really bad indigestion and am also experiencing an allergic reaction that puffs up my lips to 4x normal size and way too red)


I printed it out nice and big and headed off to zumba.

I felt awesome in zumba. I was having a good time, I can do all of the jumping without my knees hurting, I know the moves now and don't have to concentrate so hard. Just general fun times.

Well about 5 minutes in I had one of those very sudden uncomfortable tickley nostril moments, and after a giant sneeze was sure there was a big ugly booger lurking somewhere.... But I couldn't find it. I kept checking my hands, my shirt, my pants, my sweat towel, the floor. I felt all over my face trying to find it. I tried to subtly check my hair.
Nothing.

Oh well, it must have been a tiny booger and gotten stuck on the bottom of my shoe or something.
Right?

Wrong.
When I scurried out to my car to hurry off to my hair appointment I found it. I was checking my mirrors and discovered it.

In the middle of my forehead.



And it wasn't tiny.


So there's that.

And THEN came the haircut. I was so determined to get the haircut just the way I want it that I drove 25 minutes away to the small town by my folks' house and have it done by the person who used to cut it that way for me.

It doesn't look like either of those pictures.
It looks like a puffy mullet with bangs that are way too short, no hair left on the sides of my face, and too much hair left in the back.
I hate it.


And it's going to take MONTHS and MONTHS to grow back enough hair by my face to rescue it.

I figure in 4-6 months it will actually grow out to a pretty hair cut...

In the meantime I guess I just get to be really creative in ways to style it?
Good thing it's fall and I have an extensive hat collection!

So just remember, no matter how bad things may seem, you don't have a femullet. So things could be worse!

First: SIZE 10!!!!!!! That's awesome! :)

Now, about the booger. Meh. Whatever. We all have them. We've all sneezed and had one appear somewhere not-so-pretty. At least it didn't end up on someone else, right? ;)


As for the hair - wash it!! Sleep on it. Then wash it again. Maybe try a couple different types of products on it. I bet you can TOTALLY make it work for you. I once walked out of my salon with 80s rocker chick hair. Except... y'know... it was 2010. It was SOOO much better after washing it and playing with it myself. :)

    I want you to shower a couple times and then post a pic of this hair! It can't be as terrible as all that. I'm with Cheetara, hair always freaks out at first!
Also, booger on your forehead?? FANTASTIC! I feel like we are both the real life version of those girls in movies who are supposed to be clumsy which makes them somehow realistic, but it's still just always adorable, like, "oops I fell into the guys arms!". In real life it's like, "oops, I fell into the soup display at the grocery store" and forehead boogers.
oh, real life, we have to laugh or we'd go nuts...

Booby Trapping Chubberchaun Butthead (w/pics!)

Thursday, October 20, 2011

It all makes so much sense now!!!

Some of you may remember that I used to write rather frequently (and heatedly) about my constant struggle with Blobby McFlabface, the chubberchaun who hides in my rolls and attempts to expand his flab mansion with whispered suggestions of naps and designer ice creams and the like.

So you may also have noticed that I haven't written about him in quite some time.

That's because I hadn't HEARD from him in a really long time. Maybe the faintest hint of a whisper about how my couch is really comfortable and sitting empty and alone while I'm at the gym, but never anything with much force, volume, or convincing power.



I thought perhaps with the steady collapse of his flab mansion he had moved on to greener (or flabbier) pastures (or thighs).

Now I know better.

I've lost 45lb so far, and do you know what that adds up to?
The approximate weight of the mythical chubberchaun!
Coincidence?
I think not.

"Oh yay!" I can hear you thinking.
No yay.
No yay at all.

Today I got undeniable evidence that Blobby McFlabface has, in fact, taken on physical form and is lurking around my office, car, and home and trying to booby trap me into creating enough flab-space for him to move back in!!

I got up to fill my water bottle a little bit ago. The kitchen is just down my hall and it took only a minute or two to walk there, fill my water bottle, top off my brita pitcher, and walk back to my desk.

To a pack of HoHo's front and center on said desk.



WTF?
Where did these come from?
1) Most of the producers and staff here are douche-canoes in one aspect or another and none of them would be nice enough to give me anything, except maybe a cold.
2) The few exceptions who WOULD be nice enough to give me something have all very nicely commented on my weight loss and would not be so rude as to bring me HoHo's of all things.

Time to investigate!!!

But there's NO ONE in the building. It's a ghost town up in here. Just me and the dust bunnies (and they don't have the upper body strength required to find, transport, and deposit HoHo's).

So it's official. Blobby McFlabface is wandering about and booby trapping me.
That Butthead.

Edited for "profanity," but grudgingly. There are words you don't personally like and there are words that are profane. I pride myself in knowing when I'm being profane, and in keeping it off of SP out of respect to their rules, and in being as profane as I want in an appropriate setting.
You can read the original PG version here: www.legumelegroom.blogspot.com

What Is This? Jellyfish Skin? (w/pics!)

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

I am, officially, back into pants that haven't fit me since early in my senior year of college. Probably about this time in 2005.

While it feels AWESOME to pull those jeans out of the "someday drawer" and realize that 'someday' is, in fact, TOday, it also comes with some pretty horrifying revelations.

Like,

Who in the hell thinks it's even remotely appropriate to wear pants that low-waisted?

What the heck is this fabric? Jellyfish skin?


Did I really think this whiskery bleach line business by my crotch was a good idea?

Who's been stashing tacky, trashy clothes in my someday drawer?

I'm looking at you, cat!


You think this is SO funny don't you?

So, unfortunately, those jeans are going straight from the 'someday' drawer into the 'for someone else' donation trash bags (which are slowly taking over the guest room).

But you know what?
It feels a lot better to have aged out of my college jeans than it did to know I grew out of them!
And also to wear jeans made of actual denim with out anything accenting my crotch or buttcrack.
Who thought that up and how did I fall for it?

The Gym is Un-Hipsterizing Me! (w/pics!)

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

I discovered about a year or so ago (much to my horror) that I am, probably, a hipster.

When I argued angrily with the accusation and expressed my hatred for hipsters, my brother referred me to a book called 'stuff hipsters hate' and the one on the cover?

Hipsters.

I googled and wiki'd and was so ready to disprove it... and had to admit he was right.



So, being a hipster (but not one of THOSE hipsters), I tend to pretty much despise popular music.

I hate it.

It was a point of pride that I had no idea who these pop stars were or what songs they sang and could give people a genuine blank stare when they talked about them. Some of it would sink in by nature of not living under a rock, but not much, and that was the way I liked it.



I'll admit it, I've even been caught saying things like "that's so mainstream."
*cringe*

Well now I find myself in an odd position... I LOVE my classes at the gym. They make me feel strong and young and powerful and like my body is capable of so much more than I ever gave it credit for.
And ALL of the music used in those classes is pop music.

I find myself singing along to some of it in the grocery store and doing zumba moves in the dvd isle in Target and doing turbo moves at friends in the video game store and just generally embarrassing dear BF in public.
It's awesome.


I found myself really enjoying one particular one that was even rap-like, and much to the shock of my boyfriend decided to look up what lyrics I could remember on YouTube and therefore find out what the song was and who did it so that I could download it.

And, to my horror, it was a KANYE WEST song. To my credit, it was only the very last verse of a Kanye West song and was performed by a person I have since learned is Nicki Minaj (or something like that) and from what I saw on YouTube she's really weird and therefore cool in my mind and non-embarrassing to like. I just liked that she threatened to eat people's brains and said things with weird inflections!! Is that so wrong?
I didn't download it.
But I may or may not have been caught on more than one occasion looking up just her verse on YouTube to listen to while I clean. Not that I'd admit to it.
That's so mainstream.

Even worse was what happened to me last night. There's one fairly poppy song that we listen to when warming up or cooling down sometimes that I kind of secretly enjoy. It's cheerful and great to just grapevine back and forth to and do various stretches. I saw the girl next to me singing along and so said:
"I've been enjoying this song lately, who is this chick?"

The girl started laughing so hard I thought she might pee or pass out, and then explained to me that it was Justin Beiber.

I'm pretty sure all of the blood drained from my face.
I wanted to snatch it all back and come up with some snide sarcastic defense remark like it'd been a joke set-up all along...

But it was a girl I talk to in class and in the locker room all the time. She'd have seen right through it.

So instead I let out an over-dramatic movie moment "Nooooooooooooooooo!!!"

So I'm ready to admit it.
My gym classes have ruined me.
I secretly enjoy SOME pop music now...

  Just say you like it ironically. Then you are so hipster that you like mainstream things because you are just that unbearably hip. You are such a nonconformist that you aren't going to conform with hipster, which may make you a hipster royalty!
Hipster sh*t I enjoy related to working out: The New Pornographers and Of Montreal are awesome and poppy and still indie enough that you don't compromise your street cred. Biking, Yoga and even CrossFit seem like good for you hipster fads in my city. Really cool and swanky eateries feature organ meats and agave sweetened craft cocktails that fit into lots of boutique diets.
Sucks that big plastic vintage glasses steam up during workouts though!

    Hehehe, your blogs are so genuine and silly and I have missed them! Today I'm getting caught up on blog entries from the last couple of months while I was on an anxiety-hiatus.

I was a pop-addict as a kid all the way through high school but sometime after that I found myself becoming more and more disgusted with most pop. And it became a point of pride to me, too. But I've found myself in a semi-similar situation...adding Britney Spears to my "to download" list and putting in parentheses "for workouts only!" even though I'm the ONLY person that sees said list. Who am I really trying to convince?! ;)

You've been doing amazing and I'm really proud of you! Keep it up!!

However, because he works in retail and we also only get pop (no rock) stations in our area, we're surrounded by it. He swears he only dances and sings along if it's "only slightly okay or has minimally acceptable lyrics" but then some random pop song will come on....and he knows all the lyrics!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    Hahaha - as a current resident of South Korea I can attest to the ridiculousness of Kpop, but there is some variation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7_l

    NOTHING is better for your workout than some good Europop. You think North American pop music is bad? Just you wait!

Here's a classic!

    Hahahahhahahahahahahhahahahahah!!! Love this! My daughter has been singing these 'pop' songs all the time and it's funny to hear. I also do the whole dancing in the middle of the store thing.

    This cracks me up. I'm no hipster, but I don't really follow pop music, either. I'm a classic rock gal: Styx, REO, Lynyrd Skynyrd, TOM PETTY....

But some of the pop stuff is really fun. And I'll sing to it. I don't mind. It doesn't make Steely Dan any less cool. =)

    I have denounced pop music for many many many years, but some of it is so catchy.....I love Gaga.....and some Britney......and I have forgiven myself for it. Especially when Turbonegro, Manson or Gogol Bordellow follows up on the playlist.
Your graphics are hilarious! I will shimmy with you!!!!!!

    All I could think about when I read the Bieber thing was the superbowl commercial with Ozzy in it where Ozzy asks what's a Bieber and Bieber, dressed as an old man, says, "Looks like a girl to me!"

I have the most random assortment of music on my phone for working out (too cheap to buy an ipod when my phone costs more and does the same and then some) and the funny thing is like three or four songs on there, I hate when I'm not working out, but love to death while I am.

Just have fun. Anything that keeps ya moving is good.

    Wanna know what I listen to when I go on my walks? RuPaul. Yeah. He makes music and it's AWESOME for stomping out some of my rage on the trails.

Don't feel bad about what you like even if it is mainstream.

    emoticonThanks for this, really. I needed something to cheer me up and this hit the spot. I am a former-hipster with some residual hipster tendencies, including the music stuff. But over the last 5 years or so I have embraced some "lame mainstream" music, mostly for dance parties and working out. I wish I loved Justin Bieber a little more, actually. I could get one of those cool backpacks.

    I have a serious problem with all this "hipster hate" all over the place. What even IS a hipster? The websites making fun of them are full of a whole bunch of different types of people with very different styles. It's like a friggin' witch hunt.

Yeah! And like what you like!

    Like what you like! NO SHAME. Poppy music is true to it's name-- it pops, and as a result, so do you. Imagining doing hard core aerobics to Johnny Cash's Hurt or Radio Head's Everything in it's right place, or mumford and sons-- doesn't work. It's music I love, sometimes it opens my heart, makes me cry, but it certainly doesn't make me want to feel sweat running down my back or jump up and down for a half an hour.

Own this. We gets to like all the music. A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds-- (RWEmerson) you can groove out to Justin Bieber as much as you can love other music-- no reflection on you as a person...

    This made me laugh. Sure it has no subsistence but it sure is catchy.
