Friday Foray into Fabulous Facts about fings

Why is it only men who feel the need to recite cartoon, movie and television show dialog?  You very rarely hear a woman bust out with a five minute one person reading from their favorite episode of SNL playing three characters complete with funny motions.  Say Monty Python, Brian, Alms or Grail to any 25 to 45 year old man and they are sure to start giggling like school girls and reciting lines from some Monty Python skit.  Over and over and over again.  Women just don’t do it.

Can you tell I work with no women?  Well, my boss is a woman.  But she is in Stockholm and I only talk to her on the phone once or twice a month.  Everyone else, all men.  Normally I’m in favor of working with all men.  Frankly, I think it gives me an edge.  But some days it can get very tiring.  Like today, like right this second.  As one of them is explaining a song and a video, in great detail. 

Oh – or how about that thing when they say, hey – did you see that one movie where..and you say yes, and they keep telling you about it, and you say, I’ve seen it, and they keep telling you!

My husband tends to tell me stories about things that have happened to him, while I was with him.  Then he usually tells me again in a week or so.

My sister on Instant Messenger just said to me “breathe monkey breathe”  Cracked me up. 

So I’ve been doing about 250 minutes a week on a treadmill for oh, I dunno two years?  Is that right, was it last year or two years ago that I was talking to you?

So where was I?  Oh, been on that treadmill, backwards and forwards for 30 minutes at a crack 6 days a week, always on an incline at a decent clip, and it’s not lost one pound.  I think it’s improved my stamina and my ass a lot, but not my weight.  So last weekend, I got a WiiFit.  5 days, 30 minutes a day, nothing too excessive, just figuring it out, and enjoying it.  Lots more fun, lost two more pounds.  I don’t know.  Maybe just coincidence.  We’ll see.  Gotta stay on the treadmill too though. Only place I get to listen to music for 30 minutes uninterrupted.  I also do resistance bands 3 to 5 nights a week for about 15 minutes.

Off to cook up my lunch.
