Monday Minute and Ride On!


Ian over at The Daily Dose of Reality hosts “Monday Minute” on, well, Mondays…duh.  You should hop on over and check him out, but don’t be afraid of his creepy pictures, they’re not for real.

This is my first week participating, so I’m pretty excited, I might even pee my pants a little!  I was actually going to play along last Monday, but then I found out the questions were all about sex…and I was pretty much like PEACE OUT on that.  So, here we go:

1.  Ever take a shit in the woods?

Ugh.  Seriously?  Maybe I don’t want to play along this week!  Ok, the answer is yes, yes I have.  More than once probably.  The last time was a few years ago when I was out on a bike ride with my husband and kids.  I seriously thought I was going to shit my pants, and my husband kept saying “Go in the woods!  Go in the woods!”  Bad idea.  He made fun of me the whole time, and my whole ass got bit up by mosquitoes!

2.  If you won $1,000, what’s the first thing you would do with it besides give me a cut?

I should probably say I would save it, but I honestly wouldn’t.  Since my husband’s birthday is in a few weeks, I think I’d use it to buy him a new flat screen.

3.  What’s your favorite phrase?

Hmmm…it’s a toss up between “That’s what she said” and “I’m just sayin.”

4.  Fill in the blank – the world would be a better place if _______ left the planet.

Holy Hell, I really wish I could give you the first answer that popped into my head!  For lack of a better answer, I will say selfish and unforgiving people. 

5.  How do you take your coffee or tea?

If I’m drinking coffee at home, I load it up with flavored creamer.  My current favorite is coconut cream, yummy!  If I’m at Starbucks I’ll take a skinny mocha please!

Ok, onto the second part of this post.  Since Shawn and I have been married, I have gotten a new vehicle every 2 years.  Yup, new every two baby!  This year would be 2 years, so you know I have been dreaming about my new ride. 

Well, would you believe that Shawn shit on my dream?  He did.  Unbeknownst to me, he put the kibosh on “new every two.”  Something about my Acadia still being a sweet ride.  Ok, fine.  I can live with that.  I love my Acadia anyway. 

But.  Guess what happened today?  He changed his mind again!  Yup.  I got some new wheels today!  Are you ready?

Wait for it…

Wait for it…









Yup, a bike!  Booya!  That’s right, I’m one step closer to a triathlon or duathlon.  However, I don’t actually have it yet, because I have to go in for my “custom fitting” next week.  I’m completely overwhelmed by all the technicalities of a bike like this, so I’m hoping to not have a panic attack at the fitting.  Oh, and my lovely spin instructor (the one who made me puke) is doing the fitting, so do you think I should bring a barf bag?

Your spin instuctor made you puke?

Man I miss spin. I really need to renew my gym membership. My hubs bought me a bike, then he took it over.

That is indeed an actual picture of the Bullet on fire in Wesley Chapel, FL. Ahhh, the memories.

Thanks for the encouiragement. I have a meltdown of fckn EPIC proportions, and after I threw a fit and cried, I've decided to focus entirely on finals and to hell with everything else.

I have peed in the woods on a golf course. Not fun but better than a port-a-potty!

Love the bike!!!!!

Hillary said...

Did I not post a comment on this blog? That's strange?!

Did the girl's know you dropped a load on the bike trip? It seems like they would have a hard time now continually bringing that up!

Strong work on the new wheels, can't wait to see you in action!
