the little thing, the little things...

first of all, I must tell you that 'hot tub time machine' was freakin awesome. Not as awesome as 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall', which I really think was an amazing movie that everyone ought to see..
but back to the point, Hot Tub Time Machine is a must watch for anyone familiar with the 80's. and john cusack was super awesome. have i used the word 'awesome' enough yet? no? awesome awesome awesome.

also, for anyone with netflix, if you want to see some weird shit on the instant queue, i recommend:
"Never Back Down" - A movie that tried to cash in on the popularity of MMA but failed to use any MMA talent. Props for realistic teen dialogue (aka bad writing) and ripping off the plot line of blood fist.

Death Trance - a japanese take on making a music video/anime style live action movie with characters that look straight out of 'Samurai Champloo'.

and finally. people if you want to lose weight, you have to burn more calories than you consume. That's called math and it actually works.

first of all, a small disclaimer. I didn't get any sleep last night because the small evil one (also known as the baby) appears to be going through a growth spurt. That being said, today I do not care who I offend with this post. SO if I manage to offend you, GOOD!

first, the lesser of the two.. A few nights ago, my sister and I were surfing the NetFlix insta-viewing looking for a movie. We made a couple of really bad choices.. So bad that (I'm not sure I can talk about it but the names of the movies were an anime named 'Queen's Blade' and a trashy cyber-punk movie named 'Cyber Wars'. I hesitate to name them because I don't want anyone to waste anytime with these. Really a huge waste of time). Finally we settled on Fired Up. You may recall this flop as an Apatow-wannabe movie about two football players who decide to go to cheerleading camp so they can have sex with all the women.

I know. Its an impressive plot line. In fact, the first 30 minutes of this movie are pretty awful. Awful enough that I might have walked out of the theatre had I actually paid for a ticket. But I'm a bit of sucker and I held out. Mainly because every 5 or 10 minutes, something really funny would be said.. And in the end, I have to say, this movie was waaay better than I thought it would be. So if you are a sucker for lackluster movies that turn out to have happy endings, this one is for you. And I must say, there are some real moments of comedic amazing in here.

Now on to the second part. I staggered out of bed this morning to attend a meeting. I was (and still am) pretty wasted from the lack of sleep and child care activities that I had to perform last night. So i chug down a probiotic yogurt drink and a protein shake during my conference call. Yay breakfast, which only amounted to 300 calories. Then, because I know I have to keep eating (as a breastfeeding mommy) I heated up a freezer box of green giant veg. Basically a steam bag of barley, carrots, and green beans in an herbed olive oil sauce.

I felt pretty good until I read the caloric info and its only 130 calories. WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!? (that's how upset I am, I'm cursing). I am busy! Why the hell can't I eat something that's healthy and contains enough calories to support my lifestyle needs?!!! And I don't want to spend time stuffing my gullet to accomplish this either. I have better things to do.

and don't tell me to eat some meat either. The next time I want to stuff some tortured chemically treated food stuffs down my throat, I'll hit up the discount ice cream section.

so ok, i know this is really my fault. I haven't invested enough time stocking my fridge with food that inspires me and is nutritious. unlike the chocolate cookies that I've been sneaking to supplement my diet (they're inspiring is what I'm saying). Really I should just quit my job and start a new diet website. I'll call it "Every day dieting" and people can join for a monthly subscription fee. All I'll have to do is e-mail out itemized copies of my grocery bills and list what I actually consume every day. and BINGO - instant product and instant weight loss for at least 50% of america, because I know I'm consuming less calories than the average bear.

so excuse me, I got to go find something else to eat now before I keel over.

rock star life

i was telling the loml today that I wanted to write a self-help book. I said to him "and I'm going to call it 'Living the Rock Star Life'". (though in retrospect, I would actually call it 'How to Live the Rock Star Life'.. or something like that.. but anyway, back to the story). And the loml just shoots me this look and says "When was the last time you did anything rock star?".

Which confuses me. Like, seriously, I think my life is friggin' fantastic. Alot like this xkcd cartoon actually. So I'm like "What are you talking about?" At which point the loml asks me when the last time I actually went out, to a club or anything. And I get it, I get why we are having a disconnect. So I try to explain to him that I don't mean rock star literally. Not like I'm in a band and I sleep with groupies and snort coke or whatever it is that rock stars do these days. I mean more like, when I want to do something I try to do it. Soon, if not immediately; I don't want to leave behind a trail of unrealized half-dreams and hopes in some miserable parody of living.. You know?

but I try to explain this, badly. "I meant the part where I go shopping during my work lunch break." And the loml practically snorts and tells me that my book title should really be called "How to slack better and not do any work". But I tell him no one will buy a book with that title because its lame. He says that if I use my original title, it'll just take two people to read it and get angry because its not what they thought it was about. and then they'll tell everyone else and no one will buy my book.
