Thursday things I need to say

MacGyver and I were listening to the news this morning and they were talking about a recent study that said most Americans think about food about 40 minutes a day.  FORTY?  I was like, we need to know who was in that study because I think about food like 4 hours a day and those people are not telling the truth.

Fortunately, I’ve stopped taking the steroids so now I only think about food like three and a half hours a day.  As far as the weight I gained while on the steroids, well, it’s made itself at home and I’m struggling with it.  This is an accurate representation:

Or chips, or ice cream……

Did y’all see that Ariana Mocha Latte Grande got a new tattoo?  She did.  I’m assuming that it was supposed to say ‘7 Rings’ which is apparently the name of her new song but it doesn’t.

Roughly translated, it says ‘BBQ grill’ and no, I am not kidding.  Maybe when you get a tattoo in Kanji, you should double check with someone who actually knows Kanji, just sayin.

But apparently Ariana took my advice and consulted with her Japanese tutor because she tried to get the tattoo fixed and even posted about it on her Instagram.

She captioned the post partly with this, “RIP tiny charcoal grill. Miss u man. I actually really liked u.”

However, depending on how you read it, her attempted fix might actually now read, ‘Japanese BBQ Finger.’  Good Lord.  I’m not sure what perplexes me more, the tattoo or the fact that I even follow Ariana Mocha Latte Grande’s Instagram account.

Also when I read some people’s messages on Instagram it makes me wonder…

Are you experiencing the Polar Vortex where you live?  I cannot believe some of these temperatures.  It’s crazy.  The kid lives in Columbus and with the wind chill it’s been in the negative 20’s.  He didn’t even have to work today because it’s too dangerous to be outside. 

For the record he doesn’t work outside but I guess the city wants as few people out as possible.  He also told me that the newscasters are telling people to turn down their heat because with so many people blasting their furnaces it puts a strain on the system so he has his thermostat set at 65.

I have my thermostat set at 70 because it’s been in the low 60’s here and my toes have been blue for days.  I can’t even imagine a polar vortex. Just the fact that polar is in the name indicates to me that it’s unlivable. Well that and this reporters pants,

They were frozen solid after 10 minutes outside. Nope, not for me.  I’ll be over here fighting with Hank over the heated blanket.

What is the temperature where you are?

Do you have any tattoos?
