Here are the rules: Grab the book closest to you, turn to page 56, start with the 5th sentence and post 2-5 paragraphs.
After an extra-soapy preliminary shower, I ease myself into the hundred-and-twenty degree jacuzzi, wallowing up to my ears. I bring the book Wicked with me as it's already mis-shapen from too many spills into the bath. The jacuzzi is huge and I'm able to float in the very center, spreading my arms wide, without touching the sides. I look like the Vitruvian Man - if he were wearing a pink and black Mircalesuit that is. As bubbles begin to buffer me against the sides, I feel clean down to my soul.
Since I'm here, I may as well give my pores a treat, so I leave the tub and enter the sauna. I grab a cold drink and lay down my towel before ladling water over the hot rocks. The stones hiss ad pop and the room practically reverberates with heat. I take a washcloth filled with icy water and wipe all the toxins off my face. I squeeze it over my shoulders and the water evaporates before it even hits the wooden bench.
The irony here is that I hit the cold-water-plunge shower between service, and it's the exact same temperature as the water I'm paying $20 to avoid at home.
This is an exert from the Jen Lancaster book, Bright Lights Big Ass. It's a really funny follow-up to her best-seller, Bitter is the New Black. I haven't read most of it, but so far it's pretty funny. This little tag didn't do it justice. Pick it up!
Now, for my five people to tag I've picked a few of my favorites. Go check out their blogs!
Ok, I am so excited because the Hubs and I are taking a little winter vacay to Crested Butte, Colorado the day after Christmas. We are being joined by a few of our awesome friends -- one in particular who I never get to see. Sadly, though not for her, she lives in NY and I rarely get to see her. With her starting a new job at Coach, yeah, that's right, Coach, she's not sure if she can get the time off or not. If she doesn't go, I'll be the only girl among the mass of stinky boys! Sad story!
Anyway, I am so desperately hoping to run into Heidi Montag while in Creste Butte, as this is her hometown, and convince her to dump her loser-self-involved-wanna-be-producer-boyfriend Spencer. That's right people, I'm addicted to the Hills, get over it. It's pretty much my favorite show and I'm so not ashamed to admit that!
Anyway, we have sent off the lease for the house we are renting, along with the deposit, and booked our plane tickets. I am freaking thrilled! I cannot wait to go buy ski clothes! Too bad I don't know how to ski...If any of you have been to Crested Butte, let me know some places to check out!
So, as most of you readers know, I was forced - yes that's right, forced - to work on Saturday. My boss who came to work late was "sick". She was here for less than two hours before heading home. And of course, we got nothing done. What a waste of a day!
Friday night the hubs and I went to have dinner. We went to a really nice restaurant that I can't remember the name of for the life of me! We had some really great wine and crab. Seriously, YUM! The table behind us had a group of people, 2 guys and one girl. One guy was so obnoxious! It was really crazy. Being the eaves dropper that I am, I heard him telling the couple, who it sounded like he barely knew, about some woman he "Didn't give a sh** about and hoped to God that she would suffer." Yeah, brutal, right?
Saturday after work we went for a late lunch and then headed home where we both took a much needed nap. We went for drinks and then to see that movie Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. I was not really interested in seeing it and was pretty indifferent about the whole thing. However, it was really good. It sort of has a Super Bad meets Dazed and Confused feel. It's about a group of high school kids in NYC on the search for a band. Anyway, it was really funny. Very dry and witty. And sort of reminded me of college...
So, Sunday we slept until 10:30 a.m.! That's how tired we were! We took our pup for a little walk, ran some errands and came home to the disappointment that is the Dallas Cowboys. I didn't get much reading done but I'm dying to dive into my book...Hopefully tonight. Also, after being out of college for a year and half, I've finally got my degree framed! I pick it up tonight!!
