Tuesday Tangents and how not to get killed on a treadmill

So MacGyver and I put in a new floor in our home gym and we also bought some additional equipment and now we have all kinds of machines up there.   Then we ordered a mini split system so it’s not so hot up there.  Do you know what all that means?

It means I worked out 6 days last week.  Six days of weight training.  Don’t get me wrong, I would still rather be running but since I have 3 more weeks til I can do that I’m trying to develop the very good habit of weight training in the meantime.   Maybe it will last this time….

weights oh joyI wasn’t able to work out yesterday and believe it or not, I actually wanted to.  I would have rather done almost anything that what I was doing yesterday.

summonsIt really wasn’t all that bad though.  The parties ended up settling and I got to go home without serving and I’m good for another year.  YAY.

Did y’all see the video of the man running on the treadmill in the gym who almost got run over?

It kills me how she goes back to get in her car like, well this parking space sucks, I’m outta here.  And she looks like she has no concern at all for that man she almost killed.  Crazy. And where are her shoes?

This is precisely why I have a home gym and I run on my treadmill at home.  People are crazy y’all.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen happen on a treadmill?

Have you ever had to serve jury duty?  I’ve done 7 tours so far.

Tuesday Tangents

While I was waiting for MacGyver to get up yesterday morning I went for a 3 mile walk.  It was an easy paced little jaunt around the neighborhood.  An hour later I could barely put any pressure on my right foot.  I have had a minor bit of shin pain the last few weeks but nothing major.

I have no idea why or what happened but I’m going to take a break for a few days and see if it gets any better.  This should make living with me a real treat.

To celebrate his birthday last night I took MacGyver to a local cinema café to see the movie Glass and have dinner.  We loved the movie.  We have both seen Unbreakable and Split but Unbreakable was so long ago that I barely remembered it.  Split however was one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.  James McAvoy is amazing.

Is there more than one man in this picture? I think not.

If you’re an actor and you are up for an award against James McAvoy you probably shouldn’t even bother to attend the awards ceremony, unless you want to congratulate James McAvoy of course.

Yesterday afternoon we watched Fyre Fraud on Hulu and at the end they talked another documentary on Netflix, Fyre: The greatest party that never happened”, which I’ll now need to watch because I didn’t realize there were two.   I had read a lot of the first-hand accounts of what happened at the festival and I knew that Billy McFarland was in prison but I really wanted to see the documentary.  If you have any doubt about what kind of influence social media has over people, watch either one of those documentaries.  Also, if I hear hashtag anything for the next day or so, I might kill you.

Have you ever purchased something based solely on what you saw on a social media account?

If you have, were you happy or disappointed with your purchase?

Tuesday tangents

By now y’all are probably sick and tired of hearing about my breathing issues, I know I am.  But here’s the thing, it’s hard for me to run and breath and yet I still manage to force out a ‘hello’ or ‘good morning’ to the very same people that I see every damn day on the neighborhood trail I run.

And what do I get in return?

Resting Bithc Face

That’s right, resting bitch face.  What the hell?  What’s so hard about a simple ‘hey’ or ‘good morning’ back?  How about you just nod for Christs sake?  So annoying.

Yesterday I was watching the morning news and the announcer was talking about Selma Blair, who was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  She then mentioned a few other actors who also have the disease.  She mentioned ‘Jack Osbourne’, ‘Montel Williams’, and ‘Britney Spears’ sister Jamie-Lynn Sigler.’

what the hell is she talking about

At first I thought she was going to say Jamie Lynn Spears but then she said Sigler and I’m all like, ‘Damn lady, did you never watch the Sopranos?’  And the worst part was she said it like 5 times throughout the news cast and no one ever corrected her.  I was seriously mortified.

Have you gotten your lottery tickets?  I bought four.  Two for Mega Millions and two for Powerball.  I’m almost embarrassed to tell you that I had to call my mom and my sister to find out what the multiplier is.  I said almost.  I’ve played it for the past week or so and so far I believe I’ve gotten one number so obviously, I’m going to win.

Okay, it’s time for you to go off on a tangent, what’s irking you?
