Something about Infomercials

I turned on the t.v after a long day. There is a title I always see on our tevo guide while flipping through the channel list that says "sculpt abs in bed." Curiosity got the best of me, I clicked on it and I was immediatley roped in. Minute by minute I slowly came around to the idea that wearing the Contour ab sculpting belt might actually work. It was only 14.99 for a three week free trial and shipping was free if you called in the next 20 minutes. This thing looked so legit. You even got a free travel carrier backpack HELLO! I know so many facts about it I could probably easily sell it to you. I thought long and hard about calling, felt retarded then quickly wrote the number on my hand before the next infomercial started. I decided to do a little research about it. Turns out it actually does what it says except it doesn't burn calories, just sculpts and tightens up the muscle you already have. But jeeze that works for me. I didn't call. I confessed my near splurge (the buying price is 200.00) to my friend and she in return shared a story about her own near purchase. She actually called, it was a special oven/microwave, cooked out all the fat, was energy efficient, came with a bunch of free stuff. She ordered it to give it to her mom for Christmas. She broke down out of excitement or guilt and told her mom about it, realizing how much she had spent, her mom made her cancle the charge. I still think the Contour belt is amazing and she who must not be named is still sold on the new-wave oven. She sold me on it too. The last thing I wanted to buy from an infomercial was in January of 08- the "swivel sweeper" because my roommates were messy and the thing worked so well. One day when I'm brave enough I'm going to buy them. This post felt like maybe I should have written to post secret instead. Now everyone knows I'm a sucker for a good infomercial. But you know you've felt the urge.

Timing or Luck

I was looking through pictures of my trip to Thailand this summer and noticed these two pictures of my friend Kelsey being attacked by birds..also old ladies trying to steal her money. Making the most out of a good distraction is one valuable lesson I took from the trip. Inspired by a Demetri Martin "people" episode: Timing

Good Timing

Some may say it's luck, but I say no- i'm just good at capturing luck. Which does say something about my knack for great timing.

I love my sisters! Jocelyn helped me babysit the kids I nanny last night and got to dress up as a 60s girl or as Kru put it "A girl with a cape and a poodle skirt- and glasses." Kru was a batman ninja, then Buzz Lightyear, then an alien with a cowboy hat. I wish I had pictures :( but I just wanted to say thanks Boss I love you, you're the best!
