I've Got 30 Seconds... (totally random drivel)

I really should be working, but I'm cross-eyed from grading homework and my brain is fried thinking about everything that I have to do for the 9HealthFair.  So, I'm taking a blog break.  Isn't that logical?  Have a ton of stuff to do, really not enough time to do it, yet I'm sitting here on Blogger while my students are working away at their assignments, generating yet even more homework for me to grade.

I know you all have done the same thing at some point *grin*.

Tomorrow's Ashinator's senior prom.  Tomorrow is also the Health Fair, which will take up a good part of the day.  Then I have to take Monster to the Lodge to work and try to rush back down to meet the other jillion parents to do pictures.  I want a time turner like Hermione has.

So...this prom of Ashinators.  She and CJ broke up a couple of weeks ago.  She managed to snag another date with a "friend".  No problem, I went to my senior prom with a friend, too.  Only, she and CJ are spending every spare second together.  There was a week after the break up that they stayed in their separate corners, but for the last week and a half, they've been together non-stop.  Did I mention CJ also has another date for the prom?  Yep, a "friend" of his.

My problem is that Ash and CJ were together for so long, and I'm not being too terribly biased here, they were the "hottest" (best looking) couple in the school.  Their final break up made many boys and girls happy.  If I was a guy, I'd agree to go to prom with Ash as a "friend", but thinking all the while I might have a shot at her.  Same with CJ's date.  I suspect Friday night is going to be full of drama.

I've told them both that they should do the kind thing - set up their dates with each other and go to prom as originally planned.  It's going to be miserable for their poor dates when they realize that CJ and Ash really did mean "friends".

I don't get it.  I suppose I never will, but they seem to be happy with this sort of break up.  I've asked Ash why they haven't just gotten back together already.  She doesn't have an answer.  Hmmm.

Good news on the working out front - I've lost three-plus inches from my waist and an inch from my hips.

Monday's workout sucked ass.  I had no energy and drew on reserves I didn't know I had.  Sadly, I felt like it was a waste of both my time and the little bastard's Gymnastics Boy's.  I've decided it's not nice to call my trainer "the little bastard", so he will henceforth be known as Gymnastics Boy.  He's a former member of the US Junior National team.  Know what that means?  He has experienced lots of training torture and is now being paid to torture me.

Last night's workout?  Effing rocked!  I totally recovered from my Monday slump and nailed last night's.  Can't wait to see more inches come off. (And they'd better come off!)

Did anyone see Top Shot this week?  They apparently had the shooters shooting from unstable platforms.  When I saw the previews, the first thing I thought was that I'd ROCK that station thanks to all of the Bosu work that the little ba.. Gymnastics Boy has me doing.

I want to be on Top Shot.  Well, I did.  Want to, that is.  After seeing the high school drama going on and realizing that it is now "Top Bunk Buddy" instead of being performance based, I don't want to have anything to do with it.

But I'll still watch it, let's not get crazy here.

Mom's been released by her surgeon to ride again, which is pretty darn cool.  It's why she went through all of the pain of bilateral hip replacements and it'll be good to see her ride pain-free.

Now I wonder if we'll be able to keep up with her...

Can I tell you how excited I am to find another woman who watches Top Shot?!?!?!? All my girlfriends look at me like I'm smoking crack. But I am sick of the junior high boy drama too. It's just a pissing contest for big boys.
