Contrary to the rumours, I’m alive and well.
Well I’m alive anyway; but I guess you know that by now. And for the most part I’m well.
But after working two different events over the last 3 days, my body let me know it wasn’t happy with me. When I woke up Sunday morning the only thing that didn’t hurt were my eyelashes and earlobes.
At least that’s the way it seemed.
Eons ago, I used to be able to abuse my body without repercussions, going Hellaciously long periods without sleep or working for hours on end like a longshoreman doing whatever had to be done. Now it seems despite my protestations my body is turning me into a huge wuss.
And I really, really hate that.
Anyway, since I knew it wouldn’t be as busy, I let Doug go the show on Saturday that I’d worked on Friday. But since it started earlier on Sat. than our show Susan and I were left to load everything. We had to take 2 EZ ups, enough weight to secure them and everything else, not to mention the unwieldy, heavy ass cart (100lb.) that Doug had made for the rodeo so we could move everything to our spot. It’s great if you don’t have to lift it high into the back of a pick up, then down again, twice in the same day.
Then more fun… Although Doug had actually given me enough weight to secure both booths, what he he failed to do and I failed to notice while loading was that he didn’t give me enough actual containers in which to put the sand so I could weight all 8 legs. So when I got there actually had only enough to make 4 weights, not 8.
So I Macguyvered the two booths together as best I could with only 4 weights and hoped for the best.
Did it work?
Not so much, which in this case means not at all.
The wind whipped up and in a split second our 2nd EZ up was literally upside down on top of the other. They were roof to roof.
Susan said it looked like they were having sex. I thought it looked more like an an alien with really spindly arms and legs. No matter what, the bottom line was that someone could’ve been seriously hurt when it flipped. We really lucked out that no one was. I can’t ever let than happen again.
Now onto to other things…
I have a question-
Are the 80′s making a comeback and somehow I didn’t notice?
I was in a store today and saw a display of legwarmers- a big one.
Seriously, I did.
It was like I took a ride in a time machine.
Now I’ll admit once upon a time I had some legwarmers. I wore them over tights when I went to aerobics.
But I wasn’t the only one.
My fav part is the sequence starting about 2:45.
I know that when I went to aerobics I always made sure I had full blown make up on, just like the girls in the video.
No surprise that most of the people who watched the show were men.
So I guess only time will tell if leg warmers are actually making a comeback.
Actually some things from the 80′s were OK, like disco.
Of course these days I wouldn’t be out dancing to Boogie, Oogie Oogie like I used to; but that’s OK. It’s good music to clean to anyway.
I just hope that mullets stay gone. Some things should never be resurrected and I think those are pretty near the top of that list.
Now though onto some good news…
I know that with the holidays upon us many people are concerned with how to include some healthy choices. And last night I found something that til then I had no idea fits the bill.
Here you go:
I am so excited! Who knew candy could be part of a healthy diet?
Seriously, are people really falling for that?
So I guess that’s it for now. There are supposed to be big storms here manana, so I plan to stay close and go around visiting online. Se you soon.
