What makes some music Oldies Station worthy?

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Okay, I admit it. I listen to the Oldies Station. It's what I wake up to on my radio alarm clock.

This AM?

I was awakened to the awesome sounds of Aerosmith-Sweet Emotion.

What the?

How did my station get changed?

What? It isn't changed?

I'm pretty sure Aerosmith is a timeless group.

They are NOT Oldies worthy.

I think of the Oldies as stuff from my youth or further back that was perhaps a one hit wonder or is from groups that DO NOT STILL EXIST!

It was so wrong!

Oh well. I'm gonna keep waking up to the Oldies. I like the time warp.

    I have a problem with 70's stuff (some of which I particularly enjoy) being lumped in with 60's & 50's stuff (which I'm not a fan of) on some of these "oldies" stations.....to me, it's not a question of "oldies" placement but the unappealing mix.....trying to lump 3 different decades and styles together into a single classification just doesn't sit well with me from a personal philosophy standpoint......

Being put on the spot

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

The other day I hosted a Lia Sephia Jewelry party and the Jewelry lady asked everyone "What is the most interesting thing you've ever done/had happen in your life?"

I completely blanked.

I do not know why.

I mean, plenty of interesting things have happened in my life!

I once flew (piloted) an air plane. I birthed a child. I went on a trip to Europe (before the Wall fell, and went through Checkpoint Charlie). I have met a couple of famous people. I have won some pretty cool contests (one where I got to take my DD and I to Disneyland!)

So what is it about being put "on the spot" that makes me blank out???

What is the MOST interesting thing that has ever happened in your life?

Perhaps it is the word MOST that makes me blank out.

Anyway--answer the question!

    Skydiving. My Dad took me for my high school graduation gift. He was all excited and thought it was the best idea ever (because I had been asking for years!!) but as soon as that little plane took off with me in it....he was visibly sick to his stomach. He said it was a good thing it didn't hit him until I was in the air because he might have made me back out. It was an awesome wonderful day...just me and my Dad.

    I think of several things but wonder if they are the MOST interesting.

Things like an overnight canoe trip on my river where I saw lots of wildlife in the early morning hours (a mink running along the bank, geese on eggs, cranes waking in clusters of nests in the trees, sneaking by buzzards asleep on an island, and being dive bombed by a beaver who jumped off a high cliff), the wonder of being pregnant and delivering a healthy baby boy, the rush of driving away from home to start an adventure in another state and the joy of returning back HOME.

Can't choose!

By the way, thanks for the bear hug. I felt it! emoticon

    I blanked out also, but then my life flashed before my eyes and a whole slew of them came to mind. I think the most interesting one was when I taught six weeks in a school for babies to three years old with special needs.
Love your sunflower pics.

Monday Morning Meat!

Monday, July 26, 2010

It was so fantastically not humid this morning! It felt great to get out and walk. I then did my strength exercises. Hmmm...anyone know how to log in Burpies? I tried looking for them in both the strength and the cardio sections but couldn't find them. Oh well. I know I did them.

I am still waiting for the air GOD to come and fix my air conditioner. At least it is not a scorcher today.

Okay, so I ate a pork tenderloin sandwich for breakfast! I logged it all. And I even opted to cram it all onto ONE piece of bread instead of two. Saved myself 70 calories and still was satisfied. Sometimes I need meat to start my day! LOL!

    Cute blog...
About logging the Burpees--anything my trainer or I do that I cannot find, I just enter myself...usually in the strength exercises (it logs 5 min of exercise for each entry--whether it is 2 sets or 20!!)
If I do a lot of different "body weight" exercises--I also log into cardio "circuit training"...however many minutes it took me to finish the cicuit and all the exercises...hope that helps some...

I just went two weeks without meat on my Fast...I am ready for some!! you breakfast sounds delightful emoticon bread or not!!! emoticon

be well!!

Sunday START!

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Tiffany--This is for YOU!

I'm BACK! I'm fired up! I will be a LOSER!

Today's Quick Fire is 50 Burpies! I'm giving it my best shot!

I'm going to give everything my BEST shot!

***I've been feeling a bit like a mental loser. Down. Apathetic. Getting by. Psyching myself up to be okay with myself. But then I had a horrendous conversation with my BF last night. The particulars don't really matter. The bottom line of what I got out of it was that I was defending the fact that people should give their best, whatever that is, and not settle for less. Maybe all I've been able to give lately is apathy, but NO MORE. I know better now so I'm gonna do better now. I will ask myself "Is this the best you can do?"

+++On a side note, my air conditioning has been out since Friday morning. Will not be looked at til Monday afternoon. Please send positive thoughts that it will be fixed and will be inexpensive. Thanks! :o) Ps. BF lent me a window unit that has been keeping my bedroom cool at night--thank GOD!
