After such an exciting Friday night art post, it’s difficult to top it.  I’m not even gonna try.  With the modern technology of scissors and tape, I put together this photo:

OK, so no scissors and no tape.  More like photofunia.com.  That’s my secret.  Now you know and I’m going to have to kill you.  Please bring your face closer to the screen.

Where was I?  Oh yes, Saturday.  My back was hurting so we decided to skip our trip to Augusta.  I Googled Sciatica stretches and found an online video with some exercises.  I did them and the pain was GONE!  We decided to forgo Augusta anyway.  OK, the shooting pic above distracting and highly annoying.  I’m debating on deleting it but as I type the screen moves up and hides it so it gets about 5% less annoying every 30 seconds or so.  Ummmmm, so back to the stretching.  Here’s the website video I went to just in case you really really want to know. 

For our lunch we went to Mimi’s.  Yum.  Bloody Mary.  Yum.  We did some shopping including a waltz through the local home show.  It wasn’t nearly as large as our usual home show but admission was free so why not?  We did some shopping at Walmart.  Later at dinner time we went to 1900 Mexican Grill and then onto the cheap seats movie theater for “The Dark Knight Rises”.  

Rant Animated 1The theater was pretty full so we sat in the 3rd row which I hate. The guy behind us got 2 phone calls during the movie, he whispered and said 1 too many words. I made sure to keep looking behind me. What an f-ing idiot.  Sometime or another he and his clan of schmucks left the theater.  Gaggle of geese, herd of deer, clan of schmucks must be right.

Next movie theater rant… babies and toddlers.  Why in the world would you bring an infant to a movie theater?  Then… constantly I have to see you use your phone as a flashlight to check on the “darling sweet child” who is in a carrier on the floor.  I don’t care if you think you’re entitled to see a movie or eat out or whatever.  You had a child, you’re an adult, act like one.   If I wanted to be interrupted by you or your child I would have a) seen  a Disney movie or b) went to Chuck E Cheeses or maybe c) adopted a child.  And… while your child started to cry, you took the child outside you still annoyed the shit out of me with apologies as you squeezed past me with said screaming child and then I still have to contend with your annoying phone light when you squeeze past me yet again and sit back down.  Oh and on a final note, I really really don’t care if you think you somehow deserve to see a movie because you have a family, work so hard, have gray hair, or whatever else.  Rent the movie on Redbox and leave us movie-goers alone. Stay home.

Sunday morning I woke up with mild back pain.  I did that stretch video again and it was GONE! 

We picked up Beth and headed to Alton’s Kitchen for lunch.  We had a Groupon but of course.  The food was good, the Bloody Mary’s were yummy.  Jim had a Mimosa and said he could tell the Orange Juice was fresh squeezed.

On Monday it was back to work.  After work though a bunch of us met up at Fanz for drinks and grub to wish Ja-Nessa and Jason our very best on their move back to Florida.  Jim knew several of my coworkers plus he can strike up conversation with anyone.  We had a great time.  Oh and for those of you who were invited and didn’t show up, of course we talked shit about you so don’t ask.  Winking smile 

Yes, that means I drank Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  Thanks for keeping track.

  1. The Mimi's by us is not very good. Went several times and it was crowded, slow service, messed up orders and they seem overpriced for what you get.

    Good to know they are not all this bad....

  2. Fantastic that you found good stretches for your back pain! But yeah, you pretty much need to do them regularly to keep things functioning properly. Sure beats drugs, shots or surgery though. :)

  3. I so totally and overwhelmingly agree with your paragraph on babies/toddlers/preschoolers at movies where they clearly do NOT belong. The entitlement that parents use to pull that crap is unbelievable.

    1. I'm expecting to get hate mail from someone on this subject. Maybe just lose a follower... not sure.

    2. Yeah, well, the truth hurts. Kids don't belong everywhere. When the shootings happened at that midnight showing of "The Dark Knight" and all the reports came out about infants and babies and little kids (under 6) being evacuated from the theater, I saw a lot of people comment on news stories asking "why were kids and babies AT A MIDNIGHT showing of an R rated movie???" which I felt was a legit question...and all the entitled parents were responding back about how they still had a "right" to enjoy a midnight movie and blahblahblah...YEAH, get a SITTER if it's that important to you. Be a GROWN-UP. Ugh. I could go on. I won't. You know what I mean already.

  4. That Fitness Blender site is really great. It would be even greater if I actually did any of those workouts on there. Well, I bookmarked it. That's a start, right?

    1. It's a good start! I just bought the Eating Clean book and am excited to read it although I hate reading.

  5. I hate kids anywhere that I want to go. They always cry or want attention and the parents always think that the people around them think their kid is cute also and wants to see and hear them. I do think the parents deserve to go out on occasion and that is why there are baby sitters. Leave the kids home. We will all have a better time.

    1. Jim and I weigh options based on the possible presence of children. We've even asked to be seated where the least amount of children are. I'm such a monster.

  6. Good luck with getting the job you interviewed for. John has been applying to jobs at the "same bank you work at" here in Des Moines... Would be cool if you both worked for the same "big bank empire".

    Since I work from home I don't get many perks. This past year received a free t-shirt. Hoping for a bonus in Feb..... maybe... who knows....
