well, it’s official. I have made my first purchase at IKEA. and what a purchase it was. in the words of alicia I’ve “stepped away from style” and managed to change the complete outlook of my bedroom with four new pieces.
First, I bought two giant bottle shaped lamps. They glow with the strength of a thousand stars.
Then I bought two freakin’ ginormous leaf canopies that now drape with zest and vigor above my bed. please follow the link below for a picture.
My bedroom is now two steps closer to being a jungle.
Next week, I’m off to Kentucky on business! it’s just a day trip, but you know what that means: free breakfast lunch and dinner. Oh baby, you know I’m ordering the prime rib. Heck, I’m getting two.
a’ight. this has been eating at me for awhile so I’ve finally decided to put up a post about it.
Awhile ago my girlfriend Jill told me about the VH1′s “hottest rock bodies” episode where they revealed the 10 top hottest bodies of rock. here’s the list:
10. Kylie Minogue
8. Nick Lachey
7. Britney Spears
6. Justin Timberlake
5. Sheryl Crow
3. Jennifer Lopez
1. Jessica Simpson
Does anyone else notice the problem? none of these people are rock stars! they’re all lame pop/boyband/r&b stars. That’s not Rock. Rock is Aerosmith. rock is Jimmi hendrix. rock is not justin timberlake.
so, Jill, my sister Theresa, and I set out to make a list of the real 10 hottest rock bodies. I don’t quite remember all of the ones we came up with, but here are a few… in no particular order:
Gavin Rossdale (bush)
Gwen Stefani (no doubt)
comment with your additions to the list. let’s fix VH1′s idiocy.
co-worker: “this isn’t global warming. you know what global warming is? having two good looking women on either side of me. that’s global warming.”
So now, my rockstar sister Alicia gets to play with Elton John. Jealousy abounds.
Yesterday I partook in a relay triathalon. I competed with Tom and Mykal. Tom did the swimming, Mykal the biking, and I the running. It was a 10k, and was pretty fun. Amazingly my knee survived the race, and I was able to keep up a comfortable 9 minute pace. For the minimum training that I did, I was very pleased with these results. Our team came in 15th of the 23 teams that were competing. next year, I’m sure we’ll do even better.
three cheers for running.
I went to CVS in Stoneham this weekend and who happened to step into line behind me? none other than former figure skating olympic bronze metalist Nancy Kerrigan!
what was I purchasing?
a knee brace.
