I'm done with my crazy weekend and figured I would stop by and say hi! We worked 12 hours Friday and then again on Saturday doing counts for the movie 8 Mile
. In case you haven't seen the statistics on this movie it grossed 54.something million dollars this weekend! It was the second largest grossing R - rated movie of all time. Again for those of you who don't know it, it stars Eminem. He lives here locally. As a matter of fact, I drive by his old house all the time. The movie was also filmed here in the Detroit area. He (Eminem) actually showed up in his limo on Friday night and his brother and mother were there as well. Apparently, his little brother is and Eminem wannabe. Then on Saturday night, Eminem came to the theatre to actually see another movie. The manager said that he's there every couple of weeks. DH and I almost 11,500 people in the two days and the movie grossed over $87,000 at the theatre we were at. We were definitely busy campers!
WI (not Wisconsin) went better than expected. I was down 1/2#, instead of up this week. Hey, anything is better than nothing!
I got through reading the last thread and don't remember much of who said what so these responses will be pretty scattered.
2cute: Congrats on the garage sale success! How sweet to have it all gone AND doing the good deed as well.
Somebody asked about Glucosamine and Chondroitin. I have taken these supplements for several years. Very helpful. I will tell you however, that if you were to have surgery they would want you to go off of them for two weeks before the surgery. Apparently they act as blood thinners. 2cute had some bad experience with it, maybe she can tell you more. I do have a chart here somewhere about how much you should take and some general info on it. If you're (whoever you were) are interested, I'll try to find it for you.
How's the 'pecker hunt' going! You gals are UNBELIEVEABLE! You had me on the floor!
Malia: It's great to see you back! I'm so glad you had such a wonderful trip! 5#'s is nothing with all the indulging you did. Must have been the excercise that kept the weight at bay. More stories please.
Hey, is that guy out of the ditch yet, or did you capture him??? Possession is 9/10ths they say. He was on your property, after all.
Tina: Get those stats fixed. If you've lost 51.4 pounds then show 'em, honey. Be proud!!! That's wonderful. It doesn't matter where or when. They're GONE!!! * I can't wait to hear about the outfits your mother has in mind for your birthday. I'll be waiting. * I'm sorry Tina, but your story about the BIG and TASTY was so funny I shared with DH. Well, yesterday after 'doing the nasty', he turns to me and says, "I wonder if Whoppers has a special on?" Smart A$$!!!
I guess that will teach me to share stories.
I do have to say that the Benefits of Sex went over well. DH is always telling me it will cure anything. Now he has proof!!!
J-Ann: I added your name to our loser's list.
Come on everyone else. Just post your total lost and I'll add 'em up. Here's an updated list. Hope I got everyone.
We've lost 496.1 pounds!
I've gotta run. Crossing Jordan
is on. See ya all later.
