Here's A Fun Fact

I keep forgetting - I'm the grown-up =  Ann Again and again

"Here's a fun fact... about orgasms."

Um, what?!

This is how my 16 y/o daughter started a conversation on the drive home from school the other day.  Her 13 y/o sister sat in the back seat saying "I don't want to hear this" over and over.  I was, of course, shocked because just a few minutes before we were talking about going to Dairy Queen and I couldn't figure out how we went from DQ Blizzards to orgasms.

Oh, about that "fun fact";  When you are having said orgasm studies show that you lose all sense of reason.

This was curious information in that, well, how was this study conducted?  Was a question asked at "the" moment and the woman couldn't give a logical answer?   Was the woman asked if she wanted a Chocolate Lover's Blizzard from Dairy Queen and she said 'No' and the scientists said "Well, that's ridiculous.  Everyone wants a Chocolate Lover's Blizzard!  She makes no sense!"

How do they arrive at these things?  And what I truly want to know, why bother??  Knowing this little bit of information changes us in what way?  Why is my 16 y/o daughter learning this in Sex Ed.?  She attends a Catholic school so I guess this class could be pretty short and they needed material.  "OK class, it's time for Sex Ed.  First off, don't do it."  (checking "Abstinence" off the Syllabus.)  "Oh, let's see.  Here's a fun fact about orgasms!  (talked about losing all sense of reason - check!).  "Disease, disease, disease.  And there you have it.  Class dismissed."

Katie sure knew how to get my attention on the drive home.  I grew up with a mother that was open to all discussions about any topic and I hope I can do the same for my daughters.  I just hope that I'll be better prepared next time.  It's not very mature to giggle.

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&#
