Wipeout and Spermy Grooves

Wipeout is starting again on June 22nd! We just watched Wipeout: Blind Date, and laughed for two hours straight. I love that show.  I can't explain my fascination with it, other than people willingly choosing to be filmed while being knocked down over and over again delights me more than words can say. And the Big Balls! Oh my, I still laugh at the Australian episode, Big Balls: Down Under. Seriously, who thinks of this stuff? If you like watching people getting knocked off things and falling in the most spectacular ways, check it out.

Wipeout is also pretty much what I did with my eating the last two days. Weekends just kill me and I really have to get that under control. It wasn't too horribly bad, but it wasn't how I wanted things to be. I did swim for a couple of hours, though, so hopefully that made up for some of the crap that I ate.

We're going to have a couple of weeks here without BW. His aunt called and wanted to know if they could have him for a week, and the day he gets back from there, he's off to camp for a week. We asked him if he'd be OK being away from us for two weeks, and his response is, "Well, yeah, I'll miss you. But I'll get over it!" Gee, thanks. I feel bad that we can't return the favor with our nephews, but sorry, three kids in a two bedroom apartment is too much for me to handle. Waaaayyyy too much.

Last night I got to spend a couple of hours with a cousin that I never, ever see. The one that actually lives in the same state with me, too. We're averaging about an hour or so each year because we're close like that. It was nice to see her and her son, though - I like her, she's fun. I don't know why I've never really connected as an adult with the cousins on that side of the family. Not like the Texas cousins, anyway.  We've tried to rekindle our relationships through the years, but it never really seems to stick.

I'm beat and I want to finish watching Expedition Great White. One of the scientists just shouted, "Sperm in the groove, that is awesome!" while making a note on his clipboard. Right after another guy stuck his finger in the poor shark's spermy groove. Apparently, sexually violating a male Great White is scientifically noteworthy.

So yeah, big balls and shark porn - an exciting weekend at home. Don't you wish you could be me?

Hubby and I are a big fan of watching people willingly embarrass themselves for our entertainment. :)

And I hear ya on the inconsistent diet...especially during summer when almost every night the smell of bbq wafts through the neighbourhood.

When the smell of charcoal and meat mix, salad just doesn't seem to quench the hunger for medium rare. ;)

As far as BW being gone for 2 weeks, well all I can say is I'm jealous.

We don't have family able, okay willing is more apt, to take Daughter for even a weekend. Kudos to Auntie.

I love BW's response, "I'll get over it."

He will you know. :)

That last bit made me roll my eyes and laugh at the same time. Too funny.

Maybe not wishing I could be you but definitely wishing I could meet you and hang out. :D

Oh, me, too - wishing we could hang out! One of these days!!! :)

I'm enjoying BW being gone, but doing absolutely nothing. Well, if you count piles of laundry and cooking nothing....

I'm sure I'll miss him, but, just like him, I'll get over it! LOL!
