Sometimes, we don't make sense in this household

Strange things are said in this household on the daily. Sometimes it is flat out wrong and insensitive (usually something I said) and sometimes it is drop dead funny (also, usually something I said). Let me share the latest of what was said in my household.

The hubs is looking for YouTube videos to play specific song on his guitar. I asked why he doesn’t search for the sheet music instead.

Me: Why waste your time going through all those videos trying to find the one with the perfect viewing angle, speed, and clarity that you need? Just find something with the notes on it.
Hubs: I need the video because I can’t read sheet music.
Me: So. Instead of reading sheet music, you watch other people until you understand what they are doing and then you repeat it?
Hubs: Yes.
Me: So. You’re like Nick Cannon. From the Drumline.
Hubs: Uhh…

That’s right. After my husband challenged how I would ever know how to read sheet music, forgetting I was formally taught violin in elementary school, I related him to Nick Canon. I may also have poked fun at the fact his father is a musician and has his own band, yet the guitar playing son cannot read. When I poke, I poke hard.

Another time, I was wishing someone well on a sporting event.

Friend:  I have a football game this weekend.
Me: Have fun. And remember fun = winning.
Yes, I’m that bastard. I say that often to most my friends. I truly hope they have all the fun possible…and also win.

One last final episode in our house:

Me: We have to help little man with an alphabet booklet project for school. He needs to cut out pictures and stickers for objects beginning with each letter of the alphabet.
Hubs: I’ll go get the Starwars books.
Me: Ok. That takes care of A is for A-wing, B is for B-Wing, and X is for X-Wing.
Hubs: W is for Wookie. E is for Ewok. Y is for Yoda.


What can I say? We’re geeks. The children and teachers surrounding them will not be spared from this.

Dear Natural Hair, Let Me Explain...

I posted the snap of me with my hair brushed out some weeks ago. I wanted my friends to see the difference a brush makes. All too often, they think my curly hair remains curly. Some people don’t understand why I look at them enviously as they brush their hair in the middle of the day. Sure, if I worked at a place where my brushed out hair was perceived as professional, maybe I could do that. However, my mid-day hair brushing friends and I work at the same place and I get to sit by and watch them deal with their tangles johnny on the spot. I. I have to wait until I get home and can tame the beast of tangles by creating an entirely different beast. Such is my hair.
I’ve learned to love my hair.  After years of trying to hide the curls with relaxers, fancy products, and buns – I have learned. Yes, I’m jealous of people who can ride in a car with the windows down and do nothing more than brush out the wildness. I still get angry when I brake a brush or pull bristles. That does not get in…

Look Better, Feel Better Week 7

anything = sexy?

Here's a picture from the December 16, 2010 WOD from the Crossfit.com main site. It's a pretty picture, nice view. The comments to the picture were interesting. A majority of comments related to how pretty the lady was. Other comments wanted to know about the front view. There were also comments about how the picture was distasteful, unwanted, unnecessary. Some comments stated that lady in the picture wasn't what a "real" woman looked liked. Interesting.

I've heard claims that the Crossfit community, and others as well, is all about leveraging functionality and strength. Muscles are required to be strong. There is not much definition in the back of this girl. That was the root of some comments. She was stereotypically pretty and not Crossfit pretty. I understand. My first reaction to the people raving about the "Strong = Sexy" Life as Rx tee, what you really meant to say was "Anything without a top = sexy." Don't get the two confused b…
