First and foremost I want to apologize to my readers for falling off the grid. I usually posted at work and staying true to the rules and values of corportate amercia they banned wordpress. Boo! I only used it during breaks and lunches. Okay well,it was so easy to post. Now it’s been removed. This means that I have to write blogs while I”m at work and then post them when I get home. If I remember. Thisi usually happens, but sometimes I forget my flash drive. Yes I still use them becuase skydrive is not accesible at work as well.
Moving on, I am keepying up on my eating and exercise, well minuse today. it was a stress eating day, but it’s the first one I have had in a while, like two weeks. I had delicious pizza for super, paid entirely too much for it, but whatever. I bought some batteries to bring my scale back to life, now I can finally check into my new game of Dietbet. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s this awesome new app that you sign up and put forth 25.00 to loose ten pounds in a month. Last month I lost 11 and I only cut out junk and ate better. Everyone gets a cut of the pot if they succeed. It’s an awesome incentive. I gained 10.00 and that gave me a balance of $35.00 so I reinvested it into another game. Same rules except the pot is much bigger. Well being me I kept forgetting to buy batteries for my scale for the last three days and so I am three days behind everyone else but I will conque this like I did the last one. I swear it.
In writing news I received Chapter Twelve back of my commercial fiction novel about deranged rich people. But I also won a writing contest with the first 250 words from my NANO novel. It was an idea that I had been toying around with for sometime, but never took the time to write. It was perfect for NANO month. I wrote it and forgot about it. Then on a whim entered the first 250 words into a contest accompanied by $15. So my question is, does everyone win? I have never entered into a contest before. So it’s all pretty new to me.
In school we finished To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. No matter how many times I read this book, it still gets better and better with time. Each time I read it something new appeals to me. This time I was outraged by the way that Jem and Scout were treated at school. Most teachers would be glad that their students can read and analyze the world around them, but not Scout’s teacher. This theme continues throughout her schooling. What do you think?
We are reading Rule of the Bone now, it’s pretty good, granted I am only on chapter three, but I have a pretty good idea about the main character named Chappie. It seems like it’s a good book thus far.
I have also finished reading The Great Gatsby and even watched the movie. I don’t understand why people think they can recreate the magic of a book via the film. However i did like Leonardo Dicaprio as Gatsby. He does great in these types of films. By “these” films, I mean 1920’s and 1930’s. He’s an amazing actor and the same goes for Toby McGuire. Although he will always be Peter Parker to me.
Okay so I am watching the walk of nations for the Winter Olympics, I am so excited. Russia is getting ready to take over. It’s such a an amazing honor to be a part of the team. Putin is standing there. I find it quite amusing that they are walking in to TATU’s Not going to Get us! It’s kind of hilarious that they are so anti gay and that’s what fired their career.
