But one that really irritates me is the "Gym Girl".
We have all seen them, most probably get irritated by them as well, but these fine specimens really rub me the wrong way. These are the girls who look like they just stepped out of a catalog - clothes so new you can still see the shadow of the tag. Or the are so color coordinated you wanna puke. Proudly wearing the too tight college co-ed shorts 5 sizes too small, with the full blown make up and hair. The ones, with the low-cut tops and short short shorts. Now it is these girls who drive me nuts!!!!! Really, you are going to work out with that much foundation, eye shadow and gloss on? You must not be getting sweaty, as that stuff will fall right off! You must not be running cuz you got no supports for da twins! These girls really never break a sweat, and who knows if there is really any physical benefit received at the end of the 'work-out'.
Now don't get me wrong, I love me some cute work out gear - new, old or other wise. And I do put my hair back and pretend to look slightly presentable...but I am at the gym to get sweaty! Cute but sweaty - there is a BIG difference! I do not go there to attract the attention of the steroid junkies with monstrosities for upper bodies and toothpicks for legs. I go there to get my sweat on - burn some serious calories!
These "girls" go there to work out there hips and eyelashes...com'on! don't hog the cardio equipment if you are going to walk that slow 3.5 pace for 30 minutes. Let me run hard at 7.5 for 20 and I will be done and outta your way. Don't stand in front of the mirror doing biceps curls at a 10 to 30-min pace, checking themselves out every 3 seconds....Pump the iron and move on.
Maybe I am irritated because as the weather here in CHI gets nicer, the seasonal gym goers come out as well. Ohh how they irritate me too, clearly they have been hibernating for the last 7 months and they make me want to scream "It is too late to loose the inter-tube around your middle!!". It is these "Gym Girls" and seasonal people that make working out after work a nightmare! Take your selves to the fancy Fitness club down the block and stare in the mirrors there!
OK I am done...I will be nice now! I will go work-out, get sweaty and keep my thoughts to myself... or to the Internet world!

So this past weekend when the Man and I were out enjoying some rays, nibbles and drinks here, we stopped in the Wicker Park Urban and he got me this!!!! Isn't it cute! I rocked it out that night, and can't wait for the fun in wearing this!!
The Man and I at Carnivale, Summer '08
I know I know, it is bad, right?!?! I know I would be advised that I should not rush it, why are you doing this. But really there is a reason I promise. See if you.....it is just because.....shoot who am I kidding, I luuuuuuvre weddings, want to be married and all that jazz. I can't wait for the day (but I can if that makes sense!) I dream of being an event planner, who hosts the most extravagant, tasteful, organized, chic, coordinated, fun events....and hey some of them can be weddings too! So the combination of all this "zest" for events makes for some mean blog following.
Now, I did go ahead and tell my secret, I will now however NOT tell you how bad it really is.....how many I read on a daily, weekly basis. I will not tell you, how for the few blogs that I truly "follow" that I have gone back and read them in their entirety. Or that I have mental suggestions for them on the choices they are making.....oh wait did I just do that. Although it does seem smart to me to do some "research" about what I am thinking about for my own wedding one day. Contemplate color schemes, venues, dress styles, style of photographs, etc....you men do research about those fancy TV's you insist we have... HDMI, 1080, 720, LCD vs Plasma...right?! This is just my Market research! Wow, how easily I just justified it to myself!
So, I say enjoy your dirty little secrets, as long as no one gets hurt they are fine by me!
(The Man - Sorry if my DirtyLittleSecret scares you a bit....I am, but it is true!)

No seriously folks! I am soo sick, it is not even funny! I haven't felt this crappy in years. Achy, feverish, sore throat, lime green snot...you name it I got it. I took pride the last few times The Man has gone to the dark sick side, and nothing happened to me. Well this time I got it! I got it bad!
Just wanted to let you know I am alive...but barely....be back soon! I hope!
oh NO!!!!!! What if it is the Swine....?!?! It isn't but what... what if!!!!

Our Digital Camera (mine from college, eons ago!) has seen plenty of better days. I love photographs, photography and NEED this camera! Everything I have read about this model has been great, awesome for a beginner etc, etc.....I am even eyeing a Beginners Photography class so I can learn how to use it properly and other cool techniques.
MORE MORE MORE!!!!!!!!! Canvases that is....
Love to Paint, out of paintable surfaces at home equals BUY more! I hate painting without good natural light, and I tend to hibernate on the couch during winter months, so time to get cracking on some new pieces, now that I can actually open the windows and balcony door.
Paint....self explanatory, a painter can never have too many paints!

I had an absolutely amazing night, AWESOME! There were plenty of drinks to go around, lots of nibbles to be nibbled on and was attended by the best group of friends you could ask for. (Side Note - there were a few peeps missing and I know they would have been there if they could've...The Choker , J.Nasty, Peacock, Hookah and Mr. Girlfriend)....do not let that fool you plenty of friends came out and PLENTY of drinks were had! P.L.E.N.T.Y.
I was de-virginized (is that even a word?!). I am no longer a Tequila virgin....and surprisingly he likes me! I did good! Six or so shots of him, a handful of margaritas, a Jagger Bomb here, and a Jack 'N Coke there....Lord I told you it was a good night! I did cartwheels on the way home in celebration.... or was that a drunken haze? Who knows! I do know that I had an absolutely amazing time, and can't wait for all the fun BBQ's and outings which will surely occur this summer season! YIPPEEEE!
I will let some G rated photos show the fun!...So let's let the photos do the talking....
