Thursday Ramblings

Happy Friday eve, all!

I was doing a little experiment the week before last after reading the clickbaity titled "I Ate 1 Apple Every Day For 2 Weeks, and This Is What Happened."  Basically, she swapped her banana for an apple and started pooping like a champ.  You know because of my oversharing, I'll do anything to poop on the regular since I'm anything but.  Well, guess what?  I Ate 1 Apple Every Day For One Week, and This Is What Happened,  It made me so effing ravenously hungry that I wanted to eat everything in sight.  I was like Godzilla stomping down cities to get to anything that would satisfy my cravings.

While I didn't go on a Taco Bell run, I ate everything in sight on our weekend away last weekend.  When I started back to the apple on Monday and felt that same ravenous hunger, I couldn't do it another week.  That banana holds me almost all friggin' morning and I always make sure to get small ones so it's not like some 5-ounce mondo nana.  So I declare that experiment not for me and I'd rather stay plugged up than feel that dangerously hungry no matter what I eat the rest of the day.  No bueno for this chica. 

One of my friends comes to town next week so everyone can meet her fiance.  Can I just tell you how weird it is to have someone you've known for 30 years and you're meeting the person they're going to marry for the first time after he's already proposed?  If you'd have told me that when we were in high school, I'd have said you were a liar.  It hit me kind of weird because I realized the last time we were together was the last time I'll ever be able to be the way we've always been together and I didn't really get to savor that.  I don't expect people to understand that or think I'm being dramatic but it's true.  The Mr. agrees.  She lives WAY out of state so it's not like we'll ever get to see them more than once a year and for more than a few hours.  So it kind of feels like a part of my childhood has died a little but I'm happy for her and hope it all works out.  There are some things that make us a little leery but I'm hoping our visit puts those things at ease.  If not, we just grin and bear it because what can you do? 

I found out Barry Gibb is going to be at Elvis week next Friday.  Do you have any idea how hard it is for me not to go??  That man was my first vapor on my Bee Gees lunch box...

Look at that feathery goodness.  I know he isn't going to be around long and I feel like this would be my only chance to see him.  Sigh.

The Mr and I were going to do New Year's Eve in Montreal but after looking at rental sites, I have not found ONE single place I like.  They are all super modern and that is just not the vibe I want.  I wanted some character like the outside of the buildings.  So now I have to start a new search all over again to see what we can get or where we'd even want to go.  I suppose we can just stay home we do every year.  Except when we went to Chicago for NYE 2011 into 2012 and went on a boat cruise at midnight under the fireworks.  Now THAT was a NYE!!!  I've seen so many damn cabins, my eyes are liquifying. 

Yesterday morning was my first walk in the actual rain.  I know I mentioned I liked walking after rain but walking in it is just irritating.  I'm still glad I did it though because I felt my doughy middle and said "no choice for you, missy!"  So I'm kind of proud I didn't punk out even when it was sheeting.

That's about it on my end.

Who is a childhood act you'd like to see before they go to the Hollywood Bowl in the sky?

  1. I wish I'd seen Motley Crue before they called it quits. Doubtful they stay out of it for too long before they need more money though and now I'm not sure I want to see them all past the prime. Should have seen them in the 80's.

  2. I'd love to be able to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I've been a fan since their socks only days. :) They have never come close to anywhere that I have been living, so eventually, I may have to give in and travel to see them. At least they are still making new music and touring on that basis.

    If you were considering Montreal for New Years, have you considered Quebec City? There is only about a 2 hour drive separating them. I love the old part of Quebec City, but it is much more French than Montreal.

  3. I was just going to recommed that! We were there in high summer tourist season and stil enjoyed it. I’d love to go back in the off season and stay close to governors palace so we dont have to walk as far.
