Spinning Class Continued...

Last night's spinning instructor's disclaimer:

My goal this year is to have four people walk out of my class. So far I've had three. If you walk out of here, I will make fun of you in front of the whole class.

If you're wondering if I walked out, I absolutely did not.

She was rad.

Movie Review Blog...

Dennis and I have been known to watch a lot of movies. Yeah. We do. We also get made fun of because it seems that that's all we do. Well, if I could drink alcohol then I probably wouldn't watch as many movies. But I don't, so all I have left for entertainment are movies. Our lives are super awesome though. Let me share some awesome things we do that are way exciting.

-Make chocolate chip cookies. At least three times a week.
-Not only do we watch movies but we also watch television. Here are some of our favs:
Bad Girls Club
Family Guy
The Office re-runs
Any show on HGTV
Jersey Shore
16 and Pregnant
Big Cat Diaries
Shear Genius
and don't forget the new reality series "Kell on Earth"

-Go to the gym (rarely)
-Fight over the remote (Dennis is obsessed with the Jazz and expects me to watch every game happily)
-Make fun of each other (sometimes we act like brother and sister. I know, kind of creepy.)
-Play hours upon hours of Mario Cart while I get really pissed off and start using inappropriate words. Dennis thinks he the best Mario Cart player ever. I'd like to see him up against a 13-year-old boy.
-We attempted to play Super Mario Brothers on our Wii but that will surely lead to a divorce. Dennis is always pushing me off the ledge and throwing shells at me. And once again I get really angry and start using phrases like, "I hate you" and "I'm going to kill you".

So as you can see we spend our time wisely and most productively. And we're super awesome with our exciting activities. So you might be asking yourself what is the point of this post. Well it's to promote and advertise our new movie review blog. Since we have some time to use more productively we decided to create a blog that may or may not help you out. We see a lot of movies. And now we'll tell you whether or not to waste your time watching. We'll waste our time instead.

So check it out! We made our first post about "The Lovely Bones". If you thoroughly enjoyed this movie you might not want to click on our movie blog link. It was probably one of the worst movies ever made. Right up there with Twilight and New Moon. FYI, the only reason I saw those Stephanie Meyer movies is because I actually wasted brain cells reading the books.

One year ago...

Marriage is not a noun; it's a verb. It isn't something you get. It's something you do. It's the way you love your partner every day.

Two Classic Must Reads

So I've made it goal to read more classic novels. I feel guilty for being an English teacher for two years and having several classic novels I haven't touched like A Brave New World or 1984. So I started with some classic horror novels and was not disappointed to say the least.

If you haven't read Dracula by Bram Stoker or Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, please by all means do so. These are both fantastic books. Very well written, witty and very, very scary.

Spinning. My current demise.

I've been really lazy lately. In fact, I'm pretty sure my muscles are atrophying. So in attempts to ride the Salt Lake City Century in May with my lovely father, I decided I better start training.

Last night I went to a spinning class. It may have been the hardest and most grueling 60 minutes of my life. The instructor (a 100 pound little girl) made me look like a 350 pound asthmatic. Well I am asthmatic but I'm not 350 pounds. The first ten minutes of class I literally almost puked. Everyone else in the class seemed to be doing fine which made me feel even worse about my current physical condition. Well let's just say I actually made it through the entire class without passing out or walking out of the class.

I will conquer that class. Just wait and you'll see.

Groundhog Day

Feb. 2, 2010. Thanks goodness January 2010 is now over. I'm really praying that my furry friend did not see his shadow. An early spring would be heaven on earth.

In celebration of the great day I may watch "Groundhog Day" starring Bill Murray. A must see if you're a Bill Murray fan.

Happy Groundhog's Day!
