There’s No Crying in Baseball!

Remember how I told you about my Physical Fitness Test? And how I can’t even do 1 lousy pushup?

I enlisted some help. A trainer. Someone to remind me that…

  • Exercising is more than dance aerobics and cardio.
  • Measly little soup cans do not count as weights.
  • Scooping ice cream into a bowl doesn’t build muscle…even when the ice cream is really really hard.
  • In order to do 17 stinking pushups at the end of April, I need to do a few now.

Really what I need is a flippin’ wish-granting genie.

But since genies aren’t real (Or are they?),  next in line is Kiefer.

Me: You have to teach me to do 17 pushups by the end of April.

Kiefer: Why?

Me: For the physical fitness test I volunteered to participate in I have to do to stay in Special Forces Covert Ops.

Kiefer: Drill Sgt. Sutherland to the rescue. You have no idea what you’ve just gotten yourself into. (::smiling evilly::)

Me: Just so you know, if you yell at me, I’ll cry…and withhold sex.


Is It Hot in Here? Or Is It Just Me?

Last night I talked with my friend Puddin’. We always cover a broad range of topics, such as the following:

  • Mary Poppins’s bloomers
  • Pop-Tarts vs. Frosted Mini-Wheats for breakfast
  • Books (in particular how Alice I Have Been made me suspect Lewis Carroll’s intentions towards little girls)
  • Tom Hanks movies
  • Her son saying “Okey Dokey”
  • Handsome Hot actors

I’d like to open up the last bullet for discussion. Here’s an excerpt of Puddin’ and I’s conversation.

Puddin’: I’ve been abusing my free trial of Netflix. All I do is watch movies….God, Hugh Jackson is hot.

Me: Yeah, he is. ::Sigh:: Until he opens his mouth. Wait, or is that Gerard Butler? One of them sounds like a goofball.

Puddin’: You know who is hot? Channing Tatum. And he’s 30! He’s in my age range! I always feel weird saying Taylor Lautner is hot….

Me: Yeah. I don’t like admitting that I think Taylor Lautner is hot to anyone but you. So Channing Tatum is our new Cabana boy?

When I was a tween (Yes, I just said “Tween.” I’m hip.), I had crushes on tons of guys. But once I got a little older, I remember there really only being 2 go-to hot adult actors: Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.

And Sean Connery. (And am I the only one who had a little thing for Tommy Lee Jones?) But let’s face it…an 18-year-old couldn’t admit to that. It’s only acceptable for a real adult to say that, not a wannabe adult.

Now there are tons of good-lookin’ actors to drool over.

Who are some of your favorite actors/actresses now and when you were younger?
