Before I get to the zombies (if you are really keen on zombies, go ahead and scroll down to the next paragraph, this part is not that interesting anyway), did I tell you what my Vegas shirt says? Eat, drink, get lucky. To be realistic, it should say: eat, drink, get fat. Because really, who does anything half-assed in Vegas? If there is eating, it's an all-you-can-eat buffet. If it's drinking, it's the yard of Margarita, and then some. Vegas is all about excess and doin' in up big. Vegas is NOT the place for people trying to lose weight, that's fo sho. I am lucky I got out of there alive, let alone with only two short-lived pounds!
That being said, I can't wait to go back. :)
Today we went to the ever'thin'-you-never-knew-you-wanted-as-soon-but-as-you-saw-it-you-knew- you-have-JUST-GOT-TO-HAVE-IT store, Costco. You know when you walk in, you might as well just sign over your latest paycheque. It just whispers its sweet, sweet Costco words into your ear, and suddenly you are the proud owner of dehumidifier/sausage smoker and a 60 gallon jar of mayonnaise, and 25 house plants, and you are a VEGETARIAN living in the DESERT. Fuuuuck. Costco is also the best place to hole-up in the very likely case of a zombie attack, according to husband. And if you think about it, he's right. You have the basics like food and water, but also much-needed entertainment items to distract you from the idea that you may die horribly very soon (and let's face it, if you have seen any zombie movies, you know you are pretty fucking doomed). These would be things like TVs, books, CDs and dart boards (upon which you can affix your favourite zombie's corpse face to simulate the revenge you will take should you happen upon said zombie). And not to mention the big-ass doors that come down and lock you in snug as a bug in something or other cozy. The other important staple you will find at Costco: toilet paper. There's nothing worse than withstanding the zombie hordes hot for your brains and then running out of t.p. I'd just throw in the towel at that point (after wiping my ass with it, of course). Consider this part of my post a public service announcement, 'cause I may have just saved your lives, bitches!
Just because I have zombies on the brain now, I will share with you a very charming song on this very topic. It is the musical stylings of Jonathan Coulton. He has written many such amusing songs, and a lot of them are on You Tube because a fan created World of Warcraft-like videos to go along with the songs. Tooo funny. So check out re: Your Brains. Now, if you like that one, you must check out a song about a maniacal evil overlord-type who is having problems with his love life: Skullcrusher Mountain.
Oh, this is a weight-loss blog? I should be talking about food and exercise? Ok then.
I had cereal with lovely strawberries today, which was great, but then we left for Costco at an awkward hour and were there and it was past lunchtime. I ate a hot dog *hangs head in shame*. Fuckeroo. Then it was dinner at the MIL's...delicious BBQ chicken boobs, an amazing sliced potato and onion concoction, salad and corn on the cob. I had to have 1/2 a piece of pita bread 'cause the Greek MIL's tzatziki is the shit. Seriously. Dessert was fresh fruit. I was almost too full to eat any. Almost.
For my workout I dusted off *cough* my neglected step and fired up my 6000-year-old step tape. The VCR almost made a meal outta it, and now it seems to want to FF at random moments. Oh, poor step tape, how old and frail you are. The workout is still good, and as I may have mentioned before, since I know the routine very well, I can watch a movie on my laptop whilst doing it. I know. You are very impressed. Because I can sense that you will be curious about the movie I watched, I will tell you, but shhhhhh, no tell anyone else! I may have watched a pirated movie. Eeep! I watched The Ugly Truth. Cute movie. I still put my money into the big franchises though, so I don't feel too bad catching a freebie once and a while. Sometimes you just need to hit the ginormoplex for the big screen, big sound thang. Hope you don't think less of me for my illegal activities. If any readers are officers of the law...um...it was my brother's laptop, and um...the movie just sort of popped up outta nowhere. Very weird! But, I digress. I dragged out the step today because I've been a very lazy girl and have only been riding the bike for the last month or so. Time to change things up a bit...hopefully knock a couple pounds off my ass soon! I really want people to see me in Sept. when school starts and just be like..."Wow, who is that skinny, gorgeous chick?" Heck, I'd settle for, "Who is that mildly pudgy, attractive woman?"
