Ding Dong the A** Hat is Gone!

Oh my lovely three readers, I think we have finally been successful with removing the scum from under our feet. I briefly considered posting the email exchanges, just for sh*ts and giggles, but Hubster talked me out of it. (Rach, I'll tell you all about it at BCP. And yes, I have to watch my language :)

Since I've missed a few Music Mondays and Workout Wednesday Reports, I'll try to cram it all into this bloggity blog blog posting.

Let's start off nice and weird.
Modest Mouse - Tiny Cities Made of Ashes

And then a little more hipstery with this selection. I like it because of the line "Stick up for yourself". The video is a wee bit bizarre, which suits me just fine.
Yeasayer - Ambling Alps

How about some LCD Soundsystem? I just learned this morning that they broke up. Why? WHY!?! I demand answers! These guys prove the art of the music video isn't dead.

And finally, the song that's been stuck in my head for a week... Cru ew cru ew ewul... St. Vincent and Cruel.

As for my health and a Workout Wednesday Report, I've graduated to hour long sessions with Amazon Amy. Literally drinking two full water bottles at each workout. Pretty damn pleased with myself. Blood sugars are good. Blood pressure perfect. Fat loss fantastic. Keeping it up. And with these new music finds, I'm going to have to create a new play list for the gym. OH! And I'm going to try out that Entourage show to see if it can entertain me on the treadmill.

What happens when you are rushed...

As with all great intentions, I woke up early to start my day off well; as I progressed through thinking I had a handle on it all, i had a tingling feeling i had forgotten something. I ended up hearing from Amazon Amy that she was stuck downtown and needed to reschedule our work out. Argh! Well, I still needed to get my butt into the gym anyway. I got to Anytime Fitness, said hi to Brent and the gang, headed to change... And then it happened. I realized I had neglected to pack my gym shoes. I'm standing there in my gear and white socks thinking, "crumbcake, now I have to go home to get my shoes!"
Walking out of the bathroom, I ran into Big Muscley Trainer who said, "nope, just get on the machine. You won't come back if you go home." well, that's true. So I did. I climbed on the elliptical in my white ankle socks and just moved my legs for 30 minutes. Not an intense workout, but I stayed. So I think I get credit for that.

Excuse the bad grammar and punctuation, and excessive use of "I" in this post.

Music Monday - Das Racist

Request via one of my three readers. It's pretty good. Been hearing a lot about them on XMU.

Growth Mindset

Having fun this evening and feeling a little quirky. The Hubster is back in game mode, so I'm going to work on writing the next few scenes in the movie. If we could really get the whole "Scott Pilgrim" feel into the paper ball fight, I think it might be the ticket. On that note, here is G, comic sans.

Thanks to Mr. Hollingsworth, I am reading a new book called "Mindset" and utterly enthralled. I've already taken in the first 40 pages to heart, the most important of which is there is always room for more learning, more growth, and reminding yourself that you are a positive person.

Music Monday - Funeral Party

This ain't no regular funeral... this is a FUNERAL PARTY!!!

New York City Moves To the Sound of LA.
Listened to this while driving up and down the 101 last weekend.
Hey Adame! Yeah, this is the song for the trip. Try not to blow chunks all over it.

Young the giant

To my three readers,
I just saw young the giant get the peeps choice award on the MTV shindiigy. I'm so proud. I feel like mama cass. When was the music Monday pick again? I've been rocking that on my mix for a while.
I guess this reinforces my hipster
