Kiwi, Master Subject Changer

Hey, Kiwi, that's MY couch!:jig:
I got on the elliptical trainer yesterday and today I have a killer sore throat. Go figure:dz:
And it's dh's 40th birthday today :hb: . I got him a book and I'm making him a "quillow". You know, one of those quilts that folds up into a pillow so he can take his nap in comfort. Suppposed to be finished by tonight. Haven't started yet. :eek:

with no motivation to get out the door---acting like a raging bore---bagzz the tank has lost her roar.------it's a sad story but someone had to tell it----at the almost age of 45---is it too early to give up and just let my rolls settle into happy nunlets of blub-------let me know----discuss----is it too late anyway---the bags and wrinkles are here to stay---why be thin and emphasize them????
03-04-2002, 01:44 PM
Hey, I'm almost 46 (in April) and if I can't accept that I will never be thin again, then you definitely can't. The dietician says it is imperative that we get the weight off before menopause. Apparently we don't have a snowballs chance in h*ll if we wait until after. Besides, dear, we've now entered the world of losing weight for our health, not our looks. There are no old fat people. It's now a fight for our lives.
I played Bunco saturday night and I was able to stay within my calorie range. :smug: Aren't you proud of me? I drank water instead of the yummy Creamsicles that were served. :T
Kiwi, I believe that was the sofa the DH had when he lived with a bunch of guys before we were married. It matched the board and concrete block bookshelves.
03-04-2002, 05:45 PM
I'm sick. Cough and sore throat. And I feel like something the dog rolled in.:ink: Yuk. The good news is I have very little appetite and less energy, so will not be eating much other than cough drops and Advil.
You can't give up, Bagzie. We all need to start lifting weights so we can be healthy old ladies. You start.
03-04-2002, 06:25 PM
I KNOW THAT AFTER MENOPAUSE----FORGET IT!!! my mother is at WW's trying to lose her "meno-POT" as she calls it!!!!WELL!!!!---I did go for a walk today and lifted a few weights,but I am sorely lacking motivation-----I bought a book about it,but I am not motivated to read it----I wonder if Frappe ever got thin---does anyone have her email addy---I lost it and was wanting to write to her and see how she is doing----SUGAR is the big showoff with excercise,wabby the dieter---I forget----WHY ARE WE HERE,KIWI??????I think Muffie is the best cook----and PEACHBUTT is totally UNreliable,so I hope the ducks hudda on her next time she visits the pond!!!!:moo:
03-04-2002, 07:23 PM
it's cat hudda I'm dealing with now. One does it in the tub and ds can't consider picking it up and flushing it.
Thursday, Herbie and I go to NY again. I guess Lush isn't going to show up this time. But Herbie has a new credit card so maybe!!
I want to tell you about the page program. Boys and girls ended up mostly on opposite sides of the room, I think because their sponsors happened to sit on those sides. The girls sat perfectly and floated around like little spokesmodels. They smiled. They were elegant.
The boys sprawled or lay on the benches and yawned. I saw mine, at one point, down on his kneeds playing craps or something. They were supposed to scoot down and take the next position for assignments. Boys didn't scoot so good.
Who's coming to NY?
03-04-2002, 08:42 PM
LOVE TO SEE THE HUDDA WOMAN ALL DRESSED UP IN HER ONE GREEN MENO-NIACAL SHOE !!!!why is Lush not meeting you this time---is it truly true that she does not love even ONE of us any more---my ---YOU all must have done something to tee her RATE OFF!!!!! By the way,is it true that Miss Peachbutt is the toast of New York????? If so,that must mean we are all getting trinkets from Saks----I PREDICT THAT HERBIE WILL PROPOSE IN FRONT OF TIFFANYS ,A LA SEX IN THE CITY!!!!! any takers on this bet????????
03-05-2002, 01:41 PM
Hey, Peaches, if you really want to have a good time in the big apple, send me a ticket and I'll meet you there. No problem.
Last time I emailed Lushy she was overwhelmed with taking care of her mom and keeping up with her kiddos. Life is not easy in the middle generation. I know.
They reported that they found the missing snowboarding girl yesterday. Her body was only 300 ft from where her friends last saw her. How do things like this happen????
When I was walking this morning (yes it's true) a coyote came running right down the middle of the street past us. This is in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. They've started excavating some property nearby for another subdivision and it's displacing all the wildlife. So sad. Everytime they tear up some more land for houses we see some confused looking dear wandering around.
My friend/nail lady's kitty died. It was just within an hour of me visiting. So strange. When I was there, kitty climbed on my lap for a little ear scratch. He was having a little breathing problem, but he's had that problem for years, so nobody was too worried about him. Anyway after I left my friend decided to take him to the vet, but he never made it there. Poor kitty. My poor friend. She's feeling so sad.
My prediction re: the proposal in front of Tiffany's - well, I don't have a prediction, but my magic 8 ball says "it's possible"
And excuse me for the downer tone of this post, but hey, some days are just like that.
03-05-2002, 06:54 PM
Wabby, I saw one the other day, too! I think he had rabies as he was just wandering by the road. It is sad to see frightened animals.
Herbie is not going to do any such thing. Forget it. I'm trying to.
03-05-2002, 07:51 PM
I just read the tail end of the last thread. I hadn't realized there was battling going on, and not even between the Yanks and the Canadians. :(
Ok 'nuf said.
03-06-2002, 06:07 PM
don't you know when you get in a cyberfight you are supposed to use alias -sss-----remember ------- Sponge Period Lady,---CRAZYMOM---DUSTY!!!!!!!come on girls------have you lost yer Cybermom touch!!!!!! What's this about Yanks and Canadians fighting!!!We walloped yer AR$es on the Hockey Rink!!!!! yahoooooooooooooooooooooooooo
!!!!!! sorry to hear that Lush is down-----that is a bummer for sure---- I STILL THINK THE PEACH WILL GET HER ROCK IN FRONT OF AT LEAST "TARGET"!!!!!
03-06-2002, 06:34 PM
My dog's butt is infected, it's disgusting. It's to the vet again tomorrow. I'm sorry to hear about your friend's kitty, Wabbit. I hope you didn't give it anything (just kidding). Very odd Wabb and Peaches both seeing coyotes. I never see them around. I see foxes, deer, moose, bears even, but only once have I seen a coyote. Probably we have enough forest cover that they don't wander out very often.
Today was DD's Show Choir performance/competition. They did songs from You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown -- and she had a little solo. She was fabulous. Of course it was only one line, but she delivered it with panache. The performance overall was very good, too. They got a good enough score to go on to the state competition. I'm so proud of my little sweetie. 'Bout time mine did something better than the Peachboy.... :devil:
Loved your story about the pages, Peachie. I'll bet you were livid -- but you wouldn't want him to be one of those little perfect boys, would you?
Oh, I have a suggestion about the cat -- why not put the litter box in the tub? I used to do that when I lived in an apartment. Or maybe, this cat really wants to learn how to use the toilet."How to Toilet Train Your Cat" (http://www.karawynn.net/mishacat/toilet.shtml)
Also I have a joke for Bagz and Sugar (where are you, did you get my email, Sug?):
WHAT DOES YOUR DAD DO?
It's the first day of school and the teacher thought she'd get to know
the kids by asking them their name and what their father does for a living.
The first little girl says: "My name is Mary and my daddy is a postman."
The next little boy says: "I'm Andy and my Dad is a mechanic."
Then one little boy says: "My name is Jimmy and my father is a striptease
dancer in a cabaret for gay men."
The teacher gasps and quickly changes the subject, but later in the
school yard the teacher approaches Jimmy privately and asks if it was
really true that his Dad dances nude in a gay bar.
Jimmy blushes and says, "No teacher I'm sorry, but my dad plays hockey
for the US Olympic team, and I was just too embarrassed to say so."
03-06-2002, 09:58 PM
I'm leaving DS with a work-friend while I jet set this weekend. Local kids are putting on Charlie Brown and I asked her if she'd like to see it. She didn't care to see it BUT she would because I know DS would like it.
I bought her three tickets and a gift certificate to a local restaurant. Wish I could see it. What 's good to see in NY? How's Rent?
I have a problem with boss's wife. I told Herbie about it and HE SAID Maybe you can help him make a lot of money so SHE won't have to work. The nerve. The gall. I explained the problem with that thinking to him.
03-07-2002, 04:22 AM
Hi Kiwi! Good joke. No, I didn't get mail from you unless it was that virus that I deleted yesterday:D . But I think that one was in German. Still got the right address? It hasn't changed.
An infected butt? Is it those pesky an*l glands? Yuk. :p
Just imagine Peaches getting engaged in front of a Target! I got engaged in front of the Dairy Queen in Osoyoos, B.C. (really!):lol:
Off to prepare a challenging lesson for my disinterested teenage English student. :^:
03-07-2002, 12:32 PM
In honour of K-Mart going under,I think Peaches should get engaged in the lingerie aisle------under the glow of the blue light special!!!!heheheheheheheheheheheheheheheh----have fun in NYC you vixen you---maybe you can get some new green slingbacks!!:D
03-07-2002, 05:10 PM
Sugar -- I think I sent it to the right address. I'll send you another one right now, see if you get that.
No, not the yucky gland thing, the ol' doggie just has recurring skin infections which she licks endlessly. Took her to the vet today so I could spend lots of money and make her swallow several pills a day. I hope that clears it up. The vet made me promise to give Molly (that's the dog) a big birthday bash this spring -- she's turning 15 years old! He said that's about 93 in her breed. It shows. She's deaf, incontinent, on several medications, has to be helped into the bathtub, sleeps all the time, doesn't eat well and snaps at you when you try to clip her nails and brush her hair. I expect I'll be the same way at 93. At least she's not senile.
The Dairy Queen is a great place to propose -- cuz then you can go for ice cream afterwards. DH brought me a heart balloon back on the corporate jet (he'd been on a business trip) and when we arrived back at our little cabin, he proposed. He was a little tipsy from the "cocktail hour" on board. I suspect the other guys on the plane razzed him the whole flight.
I didn't know Rent was still playing -- I hear it's really good. If you get to see it, I will be suitably jealous!
The end of this month I'm going to Boston with some friends and we're going to see Aida --apparently not the opera, but some adaptation by Elton John. I have no idea. I should probably find out what the heck it is before I go.
DD was invited over to a friend's new house today to help her paint her room. Thrill.
Tata :ink: :moo:
03-07-2002, 08:06 PM
Week one and four pounds lost! This would be more amazing if it wasn't the same four pounds recently gained. Oh well. It made the dietician happy, and that's what it's all about. I'm having a hard time clicking with this lady. I think she may have always been thin. She told me she has counted her daily caloric intake for the last 25 years. Puh-leeeeze! I don't know what I expect from her. I'm a tough customer. Maybe I will warm up to her after I lose about 30 lbs. I'm always cranky when I'm fat. :rolleyes:
Kiwi, my sympathys re: the doggie butt.
Gee, it's been so long ago I don't remember getting engaged. I think DH just assumed that we would eventually marry. At some point I found myself with a ring on my finger. When he got sick of living with 3 other guys we bought a house and got hitched. I don't recall it being very romantic.
03-08-2002, 03:19 PM
Why is it that no one has posted? Could it be that you all are just green with envy over my 4 pound weight loss???? Huh? could that be it?? ;)
Yesterday evening we were at an older couples house. I had never met this woman before. She looked at me and said "you look tired." I was speechless. I said, "well yes, I guess I am tired." Geez! I wanted to say "you look old.", but you know how nice I am. :devil: Actually I do look tired. How much would an eye lift cost? That old bat really depressed me. :(
03-08-2002, 05:31 PM
Congratulations, Wabster, keep up the good work! (see, I am green with envy)
I totally agree; I hate it when people make personal comments like that. You have to be really close to me to tell me I look tired, and even then you better be really sympathetic. It's just so condescending to say that to someone in a social situation. Would make me want to get all dramatic "You're right, I'm so exhausted, would you mind if I took a nap instead of talking to you?" :lol:
Well, I have nothing at all to say. I'm planning a boring weekend. I only have 2 more Tai Chi classes; unfortunately I don't think I have reached enlightment and physical perfection yet. Oh well. Someone I know is offering a Pilates class starting in a couple of weeks. Is that any good? I would assume it would be a little overly energetic for my frame of mind these days, but hey, I want to be openminded.
I sold a book yesterday at Half.com. Of course I also bought one. Nice how it all evens out.... :rolleyes:
Tata, I think the dog needs more medication or something.......
:angel: <--- that's me, the veterinary angel of mercy.
P.S. Yesterday when we went to the vet, Molly gave the vet a stool sample right on the examining table. She's full of great tricks.
03-08-2002, 08:58 PM
Okay so I had two margies and now I am on the computer---but hearing about wabbie's weight loss might just be enough to keep me out of the Pringles----doubt it!:( anyway------ i am slowly realizing how fat I am and will be thinking about doing something sooooon,I pray:?: we have been having the Spring Break all week and there is no snow and the weather is even kind of mild!!!!amazing!!!same with you Kiwi???We have absolutely NO snow!!!---wabby---i HATE it when someone says I look tired---they might as well say you look like ****:devil: that is what you feel like======too bad the old bat didn't say it to kiwi---good comeback babe----better still====wish she had said it to PEACHES!!!!!
03-09-2002, 05:10 PM
but we still have giant rock-hard snowbanks everywhere, and our driveway/yard is covered with ice, while the front yard has a couple feet of hard, useless snow on it. I haven't been cross-country skiing once this year, and I have doubts that I will get to at all. Of course I should have gone at the beginning of Jan. but I didn't feel like it. :shrug:
The word is that we would need 2 to 3 months of solid rain to bring lake levels back up to normal for the summer. Of course that's not going to happen, so people are going to have a very dry summer around here. I am starting to wonder if our well is going to hold up. If it doesn't we might as well just move away. After all, DH hasn't done Thing 1 toward getting this house repaired/renovated, so it's barely liveable as it is. No water would simply make it unliveable. Maybe I could collect the water that drips through the ceiling when it does get around to raining....:rolleyes:
I watched A. I. (Artificial Intelligence) last night -- it was not quite what I thought it would be. It was endlessly long, and just kept getting weirder and weirder, kind of like 2001 A Space Odyssey. You know, starts out as sort of a normal story, then wanders off into neverneverland.
Did you know that Haley Joel Osment (he was in A.I., Pay It Forward, Sixth Sense ) was also in Forrest Gump when he was about 4 years old?
Today I rented Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Should be pretty outrageous.
It's an all-movies all-the-time weekend.
03-10-2002, 08:55 AM
Bleh! Stomach flu. Me. Sick as a :moo: Yuk. I lost 4 lbs too, Wabby, but they'll be right back on as soon as I hydrate myself again, so only you get the yahoo 'cause yours are staying off, right? Good for you! How is the dietician measuring body fat?
I hate that "You look tired" line. People always tell me I "sound tired" on the phone.:rolleyes:
Gotta go lie down. Tomorrow is ds5's birthday. Hope I make it through.:dizzy:
03-10-2002, 06:40 PM
What a rotten thing. Did you already have DS's birthday party :hb:, or was that big brother's? Hope you feel better right quick.
We had Sunday dinner at SIL's house today. Rather pleasant, although DD sat at the table after the meal looking morosely bored, but we ignored her.
Anybody try that Fat-Burning Cabbage Soup recipe? I think I'll try it (although I'm not going to follow the diet). I bought a head of cabbage just for the occasion. What a thrill. :yawn:
P.S. Jay and Silent Bob was disgusting and obscene. Although funny...
Tonight we're watching The Last Castle with Robert Redford :T
03-11-2002, 03:51 PM
Kiwi, it was movie weekend at our house too. I watched "America's Sweethearts" which was an ok movie. Then DH watched A.I. and The Last Castle. I was busy reading Fall on Your Knees . I was going to buy it a half.com, but I couldn't wait and it was only seven bucks at Costco.
Kiwi, I finally got annoyed with my DH's lack of progress on our house so I finally called a contractor to finish all the projects that have almost been finished at my house. He's going to put in a new tub surround in the main bath. Now if he just shows up to do the work.
We went out to dinner with DH's half sis that we haven't seen in 2 or 3 years even though we live in the same town. She has 2 very stinky Chows and 3 cats that walk all over the counters and kitchen table and 1 very vocal parrot. It was like an evening at the zoo. Actually, she's very sweet and definitely loves her critters.
You know, I realized that I really don't have much to say. Why don't we start a new thread with something interesting?
