Yeah FRIDEE!! My favorite day of the week unless I work weekends… then my favorite day of the week is sugar cookie day at the Grist Mill! 😛 KIDDING… but not really kidding… you gotta taste their sugar cookies! Meanwhile, back on the sane train, you will all be happy to know that I took my rumpitis to the Wally World tonight and I bought me some crash test dummy head gear. I even tested it out by bashing my head against the door frame a few times. Skull didn’t crack… helmet is still intact. Purchase worth it! I had to choose between a pink one and a red/white/blue one, so of course I chose the former… only to get my reciept and find that it was a MEN’S helmet! No matter… I ain’t driving around in no pink brain bucket. Nope… leave that one for Jem and the Holograms (she’s truly outrageous… truly, truly, truly outrageous!) I look even more attractive wearing a bucket whilst pedaling… the fat girl on the small bike with the looks-too-small-for-her bucket on top of her head. Phone the press… they’ll need a picture of this one! But they’ll have to catch me first… I’m totes zooming 0.25 mph up them hills on a good day. I’m figuring the camera dude could just stand still for 10 minutes while I’m pedaling up the hills and then still be able to reach out his arm and touch me.
In other news… Mission: Uncage the Singing Bird has pretty much been sitting where I left her last week… She is totally in need of a good cage cleaning and some flying practice, but we’ll make that a priority for next week! PROGRESS will be had! How are the rest of you doing on your goals? Are you killing it? I hope so. Teach me a thing or two… then bring your ball bat over and you can take turns hitting me in the head with my new fangled bucket on!!! Testing it out… one ball bat at a time!
