I feel as if summer
is already here. I am having to make graduation plans and the weather has been so hot! Just the other day, I wore shorts while driving around and I no longer have a "farmers tan".
My daughter graduates from H.S this June and I am hoping to give her a really big gift. I want to send her to Hawaii for one week as her graduation gift and her birthday gift combined. The fares are still so high because of the dumb gas hike. I just hope I can find the right price???

If I wanna smoke I'll have me a fag
Wednesday. 3.19.08 1:58 am
Brief intro to my (blog) outburst... society feels it is right to judge others. I feel it is none of their business. Some people have such boring lives that they have too much time on their hands. So they spend their time pointing fingers at other people. This is a free country and people choose to do as they please.
(now to begin my rant)
I want to make a strong statement here and that is I want to do whatever it is I want. We live in a free country and I feel that if I want to go to church, I will. If I don't want to go to church. Then I wont. If I want to have a drink then I will make it a double. If I want to smoke then I will have me a fag... (british for cigarette). If you were thinking of the word "gay" then let's talk about it. If or when I want to kiss a girl or be gay then I will.
Why does society judge you? I think as long as I am not murdering someone why is it wrong to be or do whatever I want? If I am gay, who am I hurting? If I smoke or drink in my own home, who am I hurting? If I go to church or don't go to church, does that bother you? Who am I hurting? That's right. Me. So then, why judge me?
I am not saying that I do any of these things but I think people place so much emphasis on who THEY are and what THEY do that they expect you to be the same way. Well, you know what? EMBRACE DIVERSITY BABY or get off the globe!

7 bad habits of overweight people

7 bad habits of overweight people
My weight keeps going up and down like a yoyo and it is so frustrating. For my height I am considered overweight by... too many pounds to mention. I work out at 24 hr. fitness and these are some of the bad habits of overweight people:
1. They don't exercise regularly.
Dylan Gautreaux, fitness manager for 24 Hour Fitness in Carrollton, Texas, recommends two to three cardio sessions per week of 20 to 45 minutes and two to three resistance training sessions per week of 30 to 45 minutes. He says resistance training will build muscle that helps burn fat.
2. They eat most of their meals out.
"Restaurant portions are enormous and most of us were brought up to belong to the clean plate club," says LouAnn Frisch, a dietitian in Portland, Oregon. She says that Mexican and Chinese restaurants probably have the highest calorie meals, but if you must eat out: "Thai and Vietnamese foods are better. Pho soups and won-ton soups are great choices." [Pho, pronounced "fa," is a Vietnamese soup that's usually made with beef.]
3. They always eat a second portion.
"It really does take 20 minutes for your brain to catch up with your stomach. But most people consume high amounts of food in 20 minutes," says Frisch. She acknowledges that it's difficult to slow down, but suggests putting less food on your plate and skipping seconds.
4. They avoid even light activity.
"There are little things that you can do to lead a more active lifestyle," says Gautreaux. "Take breaks and get some fresh air instead of sitting at your desk all day. There are even stability balls made to sit behind a desk instead of a chair. These cause you to sit up straight, hold your back up and burn more calories."
5. They never turn down sweets.
Frisch doesn't recommend cutting out sweets completely, just cutting down on them: "If you need chocolate, have some. Not a lot, just some. But savor it and be happy with a small portion."
6. They eat even when they're not hungry.
"Eating is a physiologically and psychologically satisfying, mood-altering experience. Most people eat, not because they are hungry, but for other reasons," says Frisch. Learn what triggers you to eat and healthier ways to reward yourself or brighten your mood.
7. They skip meals.
Researchers from the University of Massachusetts Medical School found that skipping meals can play a role in obesity. Eating fewer, larger meals may cause insulin to spike, which triggers hunger and could cause more blood sugar to be stored as fat. The study found that people who eat several, smaller meals were less likely to be obese. Overweight people may find it difficult initially to overcome their bad habits, but the results of better eating and exercise habits are very rewarding.
Well I know that I am guilty of numbers 2, 5 and 7. Eating out and skipping meals I can work on.... but take away my chocolate and the world will be sorry. ha ha ha...

Combat gear for the New Year
Sunday. 1.13.08 2:10 am
Is it just my imagination or is everyone grouchy and combative? I find myself running into so many angry people or people that just want to start a fight. At work, co-workers are angry, upset and crabby. My boss is on the war path and now thinking of telling us that we are only allowed to take ONE sick day per month. How dumb is that? If you have the flu, tonsilitis, oral surgery or other minor illnesses you are only allowed to take ONE day. Um.. when I last checked my union contract I saw no such thing. So unless you plan on going against the whole union and union employees I would suggest you keep your idea(s) to yourself.
I should have asked for combat boots and gear this year because the crap is pretty thick!

While we were down I think I lost quite a few of my readers. I have links on my page of blogs that I visit and in exchange they visit my blog. Hopefully I have not lost all of my readers?

My back surgery took me out of commission for a while but I think I am making a comeback. I miss Nutang and all of my Nutang friends.
Work is the same ol crap but now with more responsibilities. I am hoping for a promotion but I think I will have more luck at winning the lotto! I should be finishing grad school sometime next summer. I need to stick with it because I am really slowing down.
This entry is short but just wanted you all to know that I am BACK!! Hee hee. Watch out you top 10 folks!

I think there should be definite lines as to when thanksgivng ends and christmas begins. Why do stores have christmas music playing in november? When did they give thanks for all the money that they make from Black Friday and Christmas sales.
Merchants merge their holidays or just leave all the thanks out. Remember to give thanks.... :)

Ok, so Im still hooked on Maplestory. But they have the coolest events!! Since it is halloween they added a halloween town with a haunted mansion. You can only get in if you purchase a costume from the cash shop. The cheapest costume is 800 mx which equals .80 cents in real money. It is so cute and so much fun. Some of the monsters are hard to kill but I really like it. Thanks Maplestory.
