In Which I Ramble, A Lot

Two more days until I head out to Wisconsin to see my loveeee!  Hooray!  Although, in looking at my flight info, I see I’m not scheduled to land in DC until 11 pm on Sunday night.  Why do I always think that’s a good idea?  It never is, especially when I need to be in work at 7 am on Monday morning.  Sigh.

Yesterday during lunch I finally had the opportunity to take one of the fitness classes at the work gym.  I have missed spin class dearly since dropping my old gym for the one located across the street, and a 12:15 pm class worked for me yesterday.  Unfortunately, it sucked.  Big time.  The music was blah, the instructor was not good, and if I hadn’t cranked my resistance up where I knew it should be, it would have been the lamest workout of all time.

There were a lot of first timers in the class, so I can understand taking it easy, but at least throw out some alternatives for those of us who have taken a class before.  This instructor was all about hill climbs, but kept us in the saddle for all the tracks except one, I would like to work other muscles in my legs please!  She never specified hand positions on the bike, where your RPMs should be, and she was recommending the resistance between 1-6.  Uh, I kept mine between 11-19.  Extremely disappointing :(.  I think one of the other trainers teaches a class sometimes, so I’ll have to ask her when she’ll be teaching and check it out.

After work I headed home to again immerse myself in the world of daytime drinking, casual sex, and two packs a day.  Dre and I are somewhere near the end of Season 2 I believe, and dreading the day when we’re all caught up and have to wait for episodes to air in real time.  We have also decided that what they say is true, if you watch enough smoking on TV, sure enough you’ll want a cigarette.  It doesn’t help that both of us used to enjoy a cig with our booze either, sigh.  Thankfully there is no longer a 7 Eleven across the street.

Ok, now for some beauty tips, because I am clearly qualified to give them.  Or not, but whatever.  I’m a sucker for marketing, and having naturally curly hair that becomes unruly in the summer humidity, I’ve missed having it straight.  So, when I saw the commercials for the new 3-Day Straight from Frizz Ease I had to try it.  I haven’t tried to wear my hair straight since I was in Chicago in June, it’s that bad.  Also, trying to blow dry without air conditioning is torture in and of itself, but that’s a story for another day.

So, I showered, sprayed the crap throughout my wet hair, blew dry it, and then took my straightener to it.  I was super impressed with how straight and shiny it was right off the bat, but the real test came when we went outside.  It was 98 and humid on Sunday, and my hair stayed straight and smooth while walking around outside, after sleeping on it, and after my sweaty spin workout yesterday.  Granted I didn’t wet my whole head, but what did get wet from a combo of sweat/shower spray, stayed straight when I dried it, without a brush.  It’s in a pony tail today, because it’s looking a little greasy, but still super straight.  I totally recommend this shit to all my frizzy/curly haired ladies.  And no, I did not get compensated for this review, I just feel your pain.  Proof?  This was yesterday:

And then today:

Not too bad for $9.99.  I like it.  Yes, I am making weird faces, I dunno, that’s just how I look.  Also, my hair will only look like that for another 8 hours, as I’m getting it done tonight.  Pray for my head, who knows what I’ll do.
