Touchy touchy, Jimmy and Jared
So doing much else for the day or for the weekend wasn't in the cards.
We got some snow, though not nearly as much as they "predicted." I usually subtract 2-4" of snow for a storm. Since I couldn't go out in it, I wasn't quite as excited. Snowshoeing is probably in the bag for me this season. I know we're never really in the clear until mid April so I'm not going to hop on the "this is the last storm" bandwagon everyone else is on. I just enjoy the white and know it won't be long until it's rainy and gray and then skip to so hot I don't even want to go outside and sweating in farmers markets from the humidity at 8am, then we'll get back to my favorite season of autumn.
We did watch Jimmy Fallon do the Polar Plunge in Chicago and laughed our butts off.
I think that pic about says it all. I felt for him x100 because when we swam under a waterfall on Maui, the water was so cold it literally re-calibrated our hearts to the point we couldn't breathe right for a few minutes and that water was 50 degrees. His water was 32 degrees and 10 degrees air temp. But he did it for Special Olympics so good for him!
We did tune in to the Oscars which is not something we do. I usually wait until the next day to judge people in their ball gowns and tuxes in my limp bra and reindeer pajamas. (You think I'm kidding, I'm typing in them right now and yes I typed it BEFORE Jimmy Kimmel jumped through the TV in those old people's living rooms, so there.)
I think the reason I had to tune in is because anyone who is a former My So-Called Lifer, never really thought they'd see dreamy but not the brightest bulb in the package Jordan Catalano at the Oscars much less winning for an amazing character he portrayed. So it was imperative to watch just so I could scream, tear up and be a little bit proud.
I was beyond thrilled he was the first award as well. Thank you for not making me wait for it! (And everyone else whose speeches got cut short, blame him. HA!)
I also thought Jim Carrey looked really good.
Side note: How do you know when you are with your "soulmate?" When they announce the animated movie "The Wind Rises" and you both giggle and make a fart noise at the same time.
Because of my legs delicate state right now, we're forced into an active recovery week. We'll be doing strength three days this week and Walk Away the Pounds for two. I have to keep it low impact as I look to recover as quickly as possible.
What did you do this weekend? Did you watch the Oscars?
