- I had a Monday evening of guilty pleasures last night. I had Zipped the movie Burlesque a few weeks ago. (I’d heard on the street that it wasn’t nominated for any Oscars, but that’s never kept me away from a movie before.) I finally decided to sit down and watch it with a few slices of homemade pizza, garlic dipping sauce, a Diet Pepsi, and a Mr. Big chocolate bar. (The diet will wait one more day, right??) Little did I know that watching THIS guy would be the biggest guilty (or not-so-guilty??) pleasure of all!
Ummm…yes. I did enjoy the movie. There was singing and dancing and Christina Aguilera and Cher and oh, did I mention, Cam Gigandet? Yeah. He was in it too. Who needs an Oscar when you’ve got eye candy like that?! It has now been added to my Amazon Wish List.
- Speaking of the Amazon Wish List… Are you wondering why I just put it on my Wish List and didn’t just go ahead and order it? Well, that would be because I gave up my credit card for Lent. Stupid stupid stupid. But Lent was already a few days in when I realized I hadn’t given anything up. I had already eaten chips and chocolate (my two biggest vices these days), and the only other thing I could think of to give up that would be that major was French fries. And I just couldn’t do it. Then I remembered that I had just paid off my credit card, and promised my mom I wouldn’t use it ever again. (lie) But maybe – just maybe – I could sacrifice it for 40 days? *sigh* I miss it already.
- After watching Burlesque, I headed over to my momma’s to watch The Voice with her. And yes, I did a little drooling over Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. It was a Man Candy Monday for me, indeed!
- Sunday was the Daytona 500 party in my cousin Dale’s garage, where we all picked our drivers for the pool this year. Last year, I had the 6th pick and I relied on my brother to help me choose my driver, since I knew nothing about NASCAR. This year? My knowledge still hadn’t improved much, but I at least went with a few names in my head. Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle…all guys that my dad would’ve liked. (He was a Ford man, and I wanted to pick a driver for him!) But…I ended up with the 20th pick this year. Second-last. Needless to say, none of those guys were left when it came around to my turn to choose. I ended up having to confer with my brother again after all, and selected AJ Allmendinger.
I have no idea who he is, what he drives, or if he’ll ever, ever win a race. And he’s not even that good-lookin’. He finished in 34th last night. Doesn’t look like I’m going to be making much money this racing season…
