5 on Friday

True Blood spoilers ahead.  Proceed with caution.  

1.  I taught a Turbokick class on Tuesday.  I made $12.


No one gets into fitness instruction for the money anyway.  Oh well. I got experience and a free workout.

2.  I found myself purse shopping.  Tsk, tsk.  We'll let this one be a surprise for next week...

They're so nice.  They even say thank you after they take my money...

And then I got this and thought, "Crap, did I order more than one?"

3.  Scott broke down a couple of months ago and bought a smart phone.  His first.  When we were watching Shark Week the other night, he said, "Did you see the Snuffy the Seal commercial?".  When I said no, he pulled out his fancy-schmancy Samsung Odyssey to show me on YouTube.  This is the same husband who made fun of me for falling into the iPhone trap two years ago.  The man who swore he'd never have a computer-like phone.  Now he day-trades on that thing.  Oh, how times have changed.

Here's the commercial, in case you haven't had a laugh today.

4. What do you think of True Blood this season?  It's kind of failed to impress me.  But by this point, I am so stupidly addicted to the cast that I can't stop caring.  But I don't like the way they keep introducing "nobody" characters.  Like that vampire who decided to call Jason hers.  Who is she?  And why do we care?  The last new character of any significance was Norah.  And we all know what happened there...

For example, this is my current gripe:

"Jason is now some vampire lady's bitch. This will probably be important later, but not now. For now it is just IMPORTANT FILLER, for future plot twists. Also, Terry died and those fairy girls died too — so by True Blood law, new characters must be introduced ASAP. The cast list must not dip below 2,788."

I love the Sarah/Steve relationship.  It's hilarious.  I don't like that Sarah's become a murderer.  That's a little overkill (pun intended).

5.  I wore jeans for maybe the second time since we've been here. I thought that was worth mentioning.
Plus a puppy photo-bomb.


  1. I am with you with the new characters, it is too much. I feel like a lot of the plots have been super quick, especially the Terry situation and now Sam's girl is preggo? Like what is that? And Alcide has been an a-hole all summer, but then turns the corner out of nowhere. But like you, I am holding on to find out what happens anyways!

  2. I'd be a nervous wreck having anyone try to follow me teaching a fitness class. Glad you stepped up to the challenge. And purse shopping.... oh how I'm wanting a new purse. We have a Nordstrom Rack and they have fabulous purses at a really good price. Maybe when I'm ready to get a new one (even though I want one badly now) I'll head over and see what they have to offer. Can't wait to see what your new purse looks like. Welcome to the smart phone world Scott — it will change your life! I've never watched True Blood... we have HBO, just never wanted an episode. And I'll be honest... I saw the pup before I saw the jeans. Ha! What a cutie.

    Thanks for linking up today. Happy Friday, and have a great weekend!

  3. That commercial is funny! And yay jeans!

    We need to talk about our project next month...

  4. I fall into your hubby's category with smart phones. I never had one until I met my computer loving hubby and he always got the latest and greatest in phone upgrades. I also use to not have data on my phone or text msg. Now that I've had unlimited both for awhile now I cannot imagine not having either!

  5. Whoo hoo new purses!!!

    And I seriously love your sandals!

  6. If there's no snow, jeans are lame! I am anti-True Blood so I can't comment there. I'm actually lecving Team iPhone for the S4 as soon as I can. Hopefully by the end of this month.

  7. Scott sounds like Kyle when he finally got an iphone in 2011. He was like a little kid.

  8. Glad to see that Scott has finally caught up with the world of technology. :)

  9. OMG that commercial is hilarious. I want to wear jeans. Still a few months for that!

  10. that is sweet you're teaching classes! and you'd work out anyway so nice to get paid even if it's a little bit :)

  11. I'm kind of "meh" on this season as well. I wish it would follow the books a little more. As usual, the books are generally better. Although you are right, I do like Steve's character. Cracks me up!

  12. I'm still swearing that I'll never have a smartphone. We'll see how long they keep making the old fashioned kind. And hey, making $12 while working out ain't so bad! (that is, if you like to work out. I would consider that torture. )


Comments make my day!
