No shame

I know, these are terrifying. But it is so hilarious to see yourself this way sometimes!! Yep, hanging out by myself, in my nightgown (yea, grandma style one piecer= HOTTIE) playing on photo booth.
What a Friday night! My husband is sick as a dog holed up in the theater room. He's been there forevvveeerrrrrr. Poor guy had the flu and now a sinus infection. YUCK. I am keeping my distance for a bit. 
I am SO excited that I get to go to Vegas tomorrow with my off the hook sisters! Wahoo. I have missed my city that is home away from home :). Christmas shopping will actually be fun this year. Why? because it will be spent with my best bud sisters and most likely include a delish-i-oso meal at the Cheese Cake FAcTory!!!! { Ah, HEAVEN}. For all ya'll who haven't tried there lettuce wraps, do so! You won't be disappointed!

Subject in left field: I have been listening to old school smashing pumpkins lately. I used to write the little SP heart symbol all over my notebooks in junior high. For some unknown reason I thought I was cool. That same year I wore birkenstocks WITH SOCKS (gasp). Or Dr. Martens. I also wore cover girl powder in like 5 shades to light for me, lip gloss that made me look hypothermic, and I curled my 'bangs' with a 2" curling iron....Do they still sell those!? 
This was also a time when I could HALF an entire loaf of french bread and guiltlessly (or so I thought) dip a wadded up chunk of break into ranch dressing (im dry heaving as I type, and i'm pretty embarrassed at this point too) in between swips (something between a swig and sip) of Dr. pepper. Right after I finished that little meal I'd go ahead and tear open my butterfinger for the day for the walk back to DMS-through the dusty trail. All that lunch for just around $2 dollars each....and possibly just over 2,000 calories! Haha.

My bff and I also used to listen to, wait for it.... Tracy Chapman (sp?) in her car after lunch. We always had tons of extra time. So we would crank it up and sing along.....I now realize that tons of people probably heard how LAME we were and the bonus here is that we thought we had great voices.  

Pretty much every Fri. night bff slept at my house and we would come home late from whatever we did and set ourselves up a candlelit dinner for 2...oh yeah!  We would then pop 2 Schwan's man pepperoni pizzas into the oven and pour ourselves some OJ.  After scarfing down all the food (each pizza totaled 33g. of fat!!!!) we would head off to bed and fall asleep listening to Brandy. 

My point to all this? Music can bring back about a million memories stored in my (our) internal hard drive that I had forgotten all about.
Some of my fondest memories are pretty much centered around PIGGING out. Sad!

I am totally cutting and copying this to my page and inserting my name....I was pretty much the same person as you in DMS. I think we all were. Thanks for the walk down memory lane!

Hope your hubby feels better soon and try to spend a lot of money while you are in vegas!

Just so you know, I freakin love you and that brought back memories for me to. We should relive it sometime just for laughs in the next 10-15 years. I am totally jealous you are going to Vegas and better yet Christmas shopping there, like you haven't spent enough on the Gabster already. I think I will put my kids on the angel tree this year. Have fun and call me next week fo sho. Oh and by the way don't you dare eat at the burger hut without me and if you do, chow down a whole side of asparagus for me would ya? DELISH!

Lindsey said...

Marla, you are the hilarious one. Angel tree? come on!! Haha. I will be pigging out somewhere i'm sure. who knows where.

Cam, I'm glad I was not the only one. memory lane doesn't feel quite so pathetic now:)

Have you heard the new SP, it is so good! Little tid bit of info, instead of grease for Vans slip-ons, try some baby powder, worked like a charm. xoxo

Brianna said...

How I just laughed for 10 straight minutes! That was great. I was totally listening to SP yesterday, I love(ed) them too. I love music...I think I live vicariously through music. It really is quite amazing that one song can bring back every event from a certain day that you hadn't thought about since it happened. Vegas...anyway...just buy a freakin condo there would ya??!!

Abby said...

I had a smile on my face the whole time reading that! I love listening to old H.S cd's..... So many fun memories! I think maybe I havent quite gotten over highschool.... really sad isnt it??

Kass said...

Lindsey, my stomach hurts from laughing. I only went to DMS for 1 year and I totally know what you mean about the french bread. Only we would dip it in chili. Anyway thanks for hanging out at samuri. That was fun. Call me if you go early for girls night. 313-0980.
P.S. Don't you love photo booth. Sanders could play on it for hours. Kaci

Linds.Love the faces-I have almost peed my pants playing with that! I'll tell you that machine on my blog is so awesome...I wish it could fit in my basement, but then I remember the reason why I go to a gym--to get out of my house! Even thought I still want a gym in my house, one day. So it's called the Nautilus Treadclimber. I've tried everything there is and it definitely gets my stamp of approval! Funny you have IT band issues because this last marathon that is all I complained about the whole time I was training, but not once has this machine affected that. There is no knee stress. And to give you an idea of the amount of sweat---I sweat more in the 3 miles on this than the 26 in the marathon. It's awesome! BTW: I love the picture of you and your hubby swinging your baby...you guys are so cute :)
