Shaken Not Stirred

Tuesday, June 15, 2010


It's been so unbelievably hot today. Scorching. Probably not scorching or uncomfortable for anyone who lives in tropical weather, but for me, it's uncomfortable. I've never been a fan of tropical weather. Never liked going to the beach (I don't like sand...and I'm terrified of sharks--but I'm also fascinated by them too). So whenever my family would whoop and yell to go to the beach, always outnumbered, I went gritting my teeth.

I'm not sure what destination would be my perfect vacation. I've been to many big cities--Chicago, New York, Vegas, Los Angeles, Houston...and while they are fun for a few days, I always come back more tired than when I left. This is probably true for those coming back from any vacation. You spend all your time trying to cram in all sights and activities in approximately one week, give or take a few travel days/hours and you are left exhausted. I'm not sure that visiting a big city could constitute a vacation for me...maybe just a get away.

Although I'm in need of a vacation, I don't know where I would go...I'm going to have to think about this for awhile.

New Phone?

I have been considering buying a new phone for a long time. I don't really need one. My Treo works just fine. It still looks fairly new (I haven't dropped it, although with the drop calls I have been tempted to throw it out a window). It basically does everything I need it to do.

I've gone to the cell phone store several times, just to browse. The first time I went, there were so many people there, I left. I didn't want to swim through a crowd to get to a display. The second time I went, I was bombarded by over eager sales people. They were way too aggressive and I'm one to buy something just because someone pitches good sales conversation.

Now I have been a bit hesitant, since one of my friends was bamboozled by sales person who told her she could update without problem. She was then billed later for the complete cost of the phone. I would be that customer that didn't hear the "fine lines" clause spoken under breath and so quickly that it sounded like they've only sneezed or coughed.

Thank goodness that I haven't found a phone that I really really like yet...

Ice Cream Maker

My buddies had an ice cream party this weekend. They made tons of ice cream--all different flavors. I don't think I've eaten so much ice cream in my life. And so my last post, about diets and eating correctly has been nullified by this Sunday shin-dig.

And now, for real, tomorrow, I'm going to start loading up on vegetables and protein. I will eat better and will exercise more. I've noticed that when I'm eating correctly, I exercise more efficiently. I promise that tomorrow will be a new day and that I will eat healthy.
