Weighty Wednesday: Week 2~Marathon Queen

Published May 21, 2014 by ia84

I’m the queen of the marathon…the movie marathon that is.  As they say on How I Met Your Mother, if you don’t marathon Star Wars at least every three years, the Empire wins.  Personally, I think if you don’t marathon Lord of the Rings (the extended editions) at least once a year, then  Ring might as well have survived Mount Doom and be back on Sauron’s finger.  (I agree with the boy, there should be a statute of limitations on spoilers.  The books have been out over 50 years, and the movies have been out over a decade.  I refuse to put up a spoiler alert).

Here’s the thing, much as I’m into the couch potato marathon, everyone else in my age group seems to be into the marathon that requires actual running.  I’ll be honest, I don’t get it.  Everyone I know seems to constantly be going on an on about exercising and preparing for races and actually running races.  What’s really weird?  They actually seem to enjoy it.  It seems to make them feel good.  Now, I do get up and exercise five days a week.  I do it because it’s good for my health, and I’ve found that when I don’t exercise, joints start to hurt (I know that’s an old person thing to say, but it’ true).  However, I don’t enjoy exercising.  I don’t get any kind of high from the experience.  It’s just one of those things that must be done and so I do it.

So, I head into my second week.   I’ve worked on really keeping an eye on what I’ve eaten (helped that I had to have more dental work in the middle of the week.  Nothing like pain to make you eat less), and I’ve been exercising faithfully.  And…I’ve gained weight.  On the bright side, my t-shirts feel like they’re fitting a tiny bit looser (not my imagination, they totally are), so I’m going to rule this as a week where the scale doesn’t matter.  (Otherwise, I’ll start feeling super depressed and give up, which would be stupid, since I’ve only been at this a week).

Weight to Lose: 111.5 lbs.

Weight to Mini Goal: 12.5 lbs.

The Weird Things That Make Me Smile

Published January 29, 2014 by ia84

I’m kind of tired tonight, and it’s been a boring few days.  So, in lieu of actually writing, I’m going to share a number of things that never cease to make me smile.  Hopefully, if you’re feeling down, something I put up tonight will help raise your spirits.

First up, a music video that, to this day, I cannot explain what the people who put it together were thinking. The overall product is so delightfully bad, I can’t help but giggle.  (It’s kind of a shame it’s so bad, because David Hasselhoff actually has a pretty good voice.)

Still with me?  I didn’t scare you off?  Yay!

Next up, I give you the wonderful Tom Hiddleston hanging out with Cookie Monster…

Now, to delve into my favorites from imgur.

The importance of Elvish…

Spot the ghost:

This reminds me of the 1960’s Batman show, cause Batman always had words of advice for the youth about how to do things safely.  Plus, the comment is the most fantastic thing ever.

 

How I feel when I go to the art museum and weird, modern art is on display…

If you still need cheering up, here’s some random stuff that I’ve found on Pinterest that’s made me grin.

Spoilers for the next season of Game of Thrones

More Batman humor:

 

Normal people vs. Supernatural

It’s would’ve been shorter…

Poor Molly, she can’t win…

Proof that Sherlock is educational…

On to Star Wars

I’m not a Conan fan, but this is pretty fantastic:

Kind of self-explanatory:

A little Shakespeare…

Downton meets Austen:

 

Some LOTR

Indeed, where was Gondor?

I can’t be the only who sings this when I read it…

More Hobbit than LOTR:

Should I ever get married, and the groom is willing, this will happen…

 

 

I think I’ll wrap up with some Doctor Who.
