Dear Trevor From Brain Rush, Thank You

As we move along through the heavy transition our friends are experiencing, we are doing what we can to make some things a little lighter.

Luckily the sun is shining. That feels good. There are LOTS of Otter Pops in the freezer (always a hit.) And silly cartoons distract from reality. One new show on Cartoon Network caught my attention and I just had to share this with you. (We could all use a laugh, right?)

Cartoon Network has a game show called Brain Rush. This show takes unsuspecting guests at Knotts Berry Farm and asks them if they would like to answer trivia questions while riding the crazy, wild, outrageous rides. Now, the participants are already going on the ride so they aren't being tricked. They earn money for every correct answer and, have the potential to make $5000. For that amount of money damn my dizzyness! Let's do it!

The following clip is Trevor. He voluntarily went on the first ride, did well enough on that round, and has moved on to the next round, The Silver Bullet. He said that rides frighten him but, he's willing to face his fear and ride this sucker. What you are going to see is a one-shot on Trevor. (The program shows both participant and host along with the correct answer along the bottom of the screen.) The host is sitting next to him. The host has read a story and is going to ask questions about the story. On we go...

Unfortunately what you don't see is the host laughing so hard he's wiping away tears. My girls, our sweet friend and I laughed so hard we were crying too.

I know we probably shouldn't laugh. But we really needed this. Thank you dear Trevor. ((hug))

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
