LIP SYNC BATTLE

Remember when Lip Syncing was frowned upon. Well, now it’s a tv show! Boy, how times changed! I can’t  sing a lick, but I would rock Lip Syncing! You laugh until you cry. Watching super famous people acting well… human is hilarious!

The more foolish they act the better the show! My favorite episode is the “Tatum Family”. Channing Tatum regaled us with “LET IT GO” from Frozen in full dress hair and everything. He also let us know that “GIRLS” (Run The World) as Beyonce!

His wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum reminded me of why I love Paula Abdul with her version of “COLD HEARTED SNAKE”. Then she channeled her husband’s “MAGIC MIKE” strippers moves with “PONY”!  Even giving him a lap dance to boot! I laughed and laughed! Her performance was the bomb! I laughed because the look on little Channing’s face was priceless!

To keep the peace between them (because they are very competitive) LL COOL J awarded them both with the championship Lip Sync Battle belt. Which is a first in Lip Sync Battle history! I think Jenna got robbed both of her performances were by far better than his. No one wants to see a hottie like Channing dressed up like a chick! No matter who she is!

With special appearances by both Paula Abdul and Beyonce, it was the icing on the already sweet cake! If you haven’t checked it out do yourself a favor and look up “LIP SYNC BATTLE” today…

THREE’S A CROWD

COUNTING VOICES

A LIVELY GROUP DISCUSSION, AN INTIMATE TETE-A-TETE, AN INNER MONOLOGUE-IN YOUR VIEW, WHEN IT COMES TO A GOOD CONVERSATION, WHAT’S THE IDEAL NUMBER OF PEOPLE?

The ideal number of people is 2! I like having one on one conversations with people that way I know my voice is heard and they, in turn, have my undivided attention! You know the saying 3’s a crowd! Well… Totally true.

TIME AFTER TIME

PACE ODDITY

IF YOU COULD SLOW DOWN AN ACTION THAT USUALLY ZOOMS BY, OR SPEED UP AN EVENT THAT NORMALLY DRAGS ON, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY? 

I know it’s not an action but time, time is what I would slow down or speed up! All those family functions or work I could speed through. Any thing really that I don’t want to sit through. The DMV, The Hospital, Filing Taxes! Anything!

I could also slow down things like days off, stretch them out to feel like a week. My kids I could stretch out those precious moments forever! They grow up too fast and I would love to make them last, and last…

FULL OF PRIDE

PAT ON THE BACK

TELL SOMEONE YOU’RE PROUD OF JUST HOW PROUD YOU ARE.

In previous blogs, I have stated how proud I am of my daughter (the child I gave up for adoption). Right out od high school she went into the Army and after a year or more she got to her first post. Just a few shorts months later she is already getting a promotion.

The sky is the limit and I am so happy for her. Although honestly I am also now proud of myself. I have finally taken the leap I needed and started following my dreams. If someone had told me a year ago I would have a blog, and a book published as an ebook or otherwise. I would have said they are CRAZY! I am proud of the fact that I have now jumped in with both feet. There is no going back. I am freer because of it! Just goes to show following your heart is good for your health and your soul!

Buy my book now at barnesandnoble.com.to get an account is free and the nook app to read it is also free. At only 99cents, it is a steal. It’s called  “SLIM PICKINGS”.

A BEAUTIFUL MIND

TOOT YOUR OWN HORN

MOST OF US ARE EXCELLENT AT SELF-DEPRECATING, AND ARE NOT SO GOOD AT THE OPPOSITE. TELL US YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF.

My favorite thing about myself is me! What you see is what you get! I am truthful, down to earth, and low maintenance. I am one of those rare breed of women that doesn’t like to shop or primp.

I spend exactly the same amount of time on my hair as I do getting dressed. About 5 minutes! I don’t wear a lot of make-up either. I guess once a tomboy always a tomboy! I don’t put on a show to the world and I don’t play mind games either! I’m a shoot from the hip kind of girl.

Most people are put off by this approach to life!  However, considering my past, that is the only way I know how to live. I guess that’s why once I am crossed you are dead to me! ou I don’t have time for silly games or catty conversations. I am a grown up!

I use my time wisely like spending it with my kids, my husband, or writing. I am strong, I am smart, kind, honest, and now brave. Like I said what you see is what you get!

ZING! NOT!

DRAWING A BLANK

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU WALKED AWAY FROM A DISCUSSION, ONLY TO THINK OF THE PERFECT COMEBACK HOURS LATER? RECREATE THE SCENE FOR US, AND USE YOUR WINNING LINE.

I have actually done this so many times I can’t even begin to start. Being a perfectionist I replay and replay the situation over and over in my head at nauseam until I can come up with the perfect zinger.

Unfortunately, it is always right after the fact! I think it is performance anxiety or maybe even my fear of confrontation that keeps me from saying my zinger in the moment. That’s why I love writing I can take a pause and get it just right!

Either way on some level, fear still gets to me. I should really work on that…

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

I am sitting here in a club full of people and all I can think is, Man, I’m too old for this shit! When the fu%ck did I get old! When did it stop being fun to go hang out at the bar and shoot some pool while having a few!

Last weekend I was like”OMG! I never get out anymore”. I wanted to prove to myself and others that I was in fact not old! I mean I’m not even 40 yet! This weekend, however, I was able to get out with my girlfriend a  sports bar and while it was good for about 30 minutes I realized pretty quickly I didn’t belong in this atmosphere anymore. That is really sad to think “Man, is my life over already?”

I see all the guys checking out my newly single friend and I am disgusted. Like I was in a meat market literally! I understand this is the way I met my husband and all and I am glad my friend was able to get out but for us married ladies! It was a nightmare!

It’s no wonder none of my friends ever ask me to go out with them, I am the only one happily married. I do feel a little left out, though! I sit here watching like a voyeur and I feel stupid. Watching the men do their mating dance. Watching the masses of washed and unwashed alike do their nightly ritual all to get laid.

It is funny in a way! Most of these guys will go home back to their mom’s basement or their one bedroom apartment alone. I never noticed the epic failure these people go through just to try and find a hint of what I have.

I am a little sad that I no longer fit with that crowd but I know I am not dead I just need to find a different sort of fun for us married folk.
