Creepy Yoga Guy

Did anyone else see that Law and Order (or another similar show) where the psycho killer guy with the foot fetish was finding his victims in yoga classes cause that's where he could see their bare feet? That's all I could think of when the scary old guy with braces showed up in my yoga class last night.

So if I'm suddenly found brutally murdered, but with a nice pedicure...tell the police to check that guy out.

I went to see Adam Sandler's new movie Click tonight. Besides becoming unexpectedly serious and emotional at one point it was pretty good. But I felt I needed to warn all of you. Sean Astin has a small part in it...and he's in a speedo. It's just so wrong to have Rudy in a speedo. So when Adam Sandler goes to his son's swim meet, cover your eyes. I know you'll be curious to peek, but don't do it!!
Psychotic Thought of the Week

If I were homeless, I'd go to Fazoli's and eat the free breadsticks. I've even worked out a thorough plan of how I'd act like I had ordered and was waiting for my food.

(So is the psychotic thought a welcome addition to the blog?)

I am sooo sick of rain. Normally I like rain. I like the noise it makes. I like to watch it (even the lightening) and I like the fact that I've convinced myself that psycho killers won't come after me in the rain. BUT this is ridiculous. It's been raining like forever and is supposed to continue at least two more days. It's not just a little sprinkle either. This is torrential (sounds like its coming through the roof) downpours. Roads are flooded. You can't see where you're driving half the time. It sucks. Some morons had their sprinklers on today. Uh...hello...we're flooding...don't you think the sprinklers are a little overkill?

The Stupid Thing I Did Today

This might become a weekly post along with "My psychotic thought of the week" and "Things that annoy me" posts.

Today when I took my car to be inspected, (Inspecting cars?!? What an ingenious idea!! Hello? Indiana? Can we get a clue?) I turned in my apartment keys with my car keys at the mechanic not thinking gee, how will I get into my apartment. Luckily, my grandma has my extra key!!

Boil Water Advisory

I just discovered that my area is under a boil water advisory. Not having cable TV, or listening to local radio, this was only discovered after I had chugged a huge thing of water upon returning from the gym this morning. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that I do not get any of the nausea, diarrhea, headaches or intestinal cramping that may be associated with bacteria in my non-boiled water.

Things that Annoy Me

People that have aerobic induced tourettes. You know what I'm talking about. You're getting your ass kicked by some step aerobics or kick boxing class and there's that one lady also taking the class who lets out a bunch of "wooo's" and "Oh yeah's" and "Come on's". I had a lady like that today right behind me, but she was never satisfied with just one woo it was always three in a row. "Woo Woo Woo"...kinda like a train whistle...three times as annoying.

Betsy's Fortune

"Life is like a school, so try some of the curriculum."

Friday, June 23, 2006


Last night there was a big thunderstorm and I was wondering why people are so scared of thunderstorms. I feel safer in thunderstorms because no one is going to rob and kill you in a thunderstorm and get all the stuff wet that they just stole, not to mention leaving footprints all over the place.

That's my psychotic thought of the week.

A Sign Your Lunch Bag Looks Too Much Like a Purse

This morning when you go to put your sandwich in it for lunch, you realize that last night when you came home from work in a tired haze you put your cell phone and keys in it.

Summer Outreach

Today at Summer Outreach the girls were making "lip gloss" using petroleum jelly and pixie sticks. It was really kinda if you took your lip gloss to the beach and got sand in it.

Look at my new lunch bag. Cute, isn't it? I like purple...can you tell?
Father's Day

For Father's Day, my dad (who happened to be in from Indiana) chose to go to Panera. Who goes to Panera for Father's Day?

Ben and Jerry's is making Black and Tan icecream---stout flavored ice cream and chocolate ice cream. This is no joke. I saw it first in the store.
I Got Paid

to go on a hike this morning with the city kids. The saddest part was when one girl said "what's a hike?"

What will they do when he retires?

If you can't read it, it says "Congratulations to Middletown's Ben Olsen 2006 U.S. World Cup Soccer Team Member." It is hanging downtown in my hometown. This is what my town has to celebrate. I guess they want to believe Ben Olsen negates the whole Three Mile Island thing and nobody really bought the whole Mickey Mouse was really invented here, but ripped off by Disney.

Not a bad picture for being taken while I was driving.

My New Purse

Look at my pretty new purse that I bought at the craft fair today. It was only $11 and is made out of a placemat which I think is totally cool. If you are lucky enough to be my friend and live in my vicinity you may be invited to a party to order your very own placemat purse.
I Laughed Till I Cried

Last night I saw one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time as I was getting ready to leave a friend's house. It involved her and a recliner. See the diagram below for exactly what happened.

Any questions?

My Friday Fear

We have the blessing of having casual Fridays at work. Almost every Friday, I'm driving to work and I think "Am I sure that it's Friday? I'll get to work and be in jeans and look like a complete idiot." My schedule is really random, but is it weird to think that EVERY WEEK? I'm thinking of keeping work clothes in my car just in case.

And you thought your family was weird

This is my grandma. Yes, she's wearing a skunk mask. The theme of my cousin's birthday was "Over the Hedge."

My newest project at work

It's made out of a coffee filter and it's a magnet. How cool is that!!

PS I've been trying to post this for two days and this is the first time I could actually do it!!

First post from my apartment

Well, the day has finally come. My first night in my new apartment. Complete with my purple couch. Though it does leave a little to be desired. My kitchen table didn't come because it was broken when it arrived in the store from the warehouse. I'm also watching Lilo and Stitch on a very small tv (those of you that went to college with me know exactly what small tv I'm speaking of) because my large tv is still in Indiana and I do not have cable yet. I just hope that I don't trip over one of the many still unpacked boxes in the middle of the night and break my neck!

Kids Say the Darndest Things

Tonight at the Girl Scout Troop that I lead in the ghetto, we were talking about different cultures. Some of the girls were talking about their heritage (like one girl had ancestors from Puerto Rico.) One girl looked directly at me and said "My mom says I'm from God's country." How am I supposed to respond to that?
