This is all I have to say for the next week and a half...


Gym update & August weigh in

I went to the gym 3 times this week. Richard Simmons would be so proud.

I also got weighed and measured. A different person measured me this time so I am not sure how accurate the inches are. I don't think she pulls the measuring tape as tight as the lady that normally measures me. So if we see dramatic results in the inches in September that's why.

Since the end of July...

I GAINED 2 inches! Shit! (I am willing to bet that if my normal lady had measured me I would have been the same size.)
I lost 2 pounds. Yay!
I lost 0.40% body fat.

Also, when I post my weekly updates my friend CJK is going to comment with hers. Her goal is also to go to the gym 3 times a week. So cheer her on!

Should I go to the gym while I’m on vacation? I want to take a poll. Comment to let me know what you think. I think I should at least try. Here are your choices:
a) Yes! Go 3 times on vacation so you don't fall behind!
b) Try, but if you only go once - no biggie - don't beat yourself up!
c) Don't even think about it. Vacation is vacation from the gym too!

She needs some more pushing...

Hey Bri! Where's that blog we are all waiting for?

P.S. You know when I want something I am a like a pit bull. I won't let go! So you are going to get a reminder every week until we see that blog!

To Bri or not to Bri - There is NO question.

Last night we were at the bar playing poker (I got second place by the way! Yay!) and something very strange happened to Bri. She said to me "Gee, I really wish I had a blog so I could write about that for everyone in the whole world to read." Ok - those weren't her exact words, but that was the long and short of it. I told her to make a blog! (Or at the very least type up the story she wants to tell so she can be a guest blogger on Professor Unc.) Wouldn't we all love it if Bri had her own blog?!?!

What I need from you loyal (or occasional) readers is to comment on this post. I want everyone to comment, even if you have been lurking on this blog anonymously and blog stocking me. (And I know I have some blog stockers out there!) Now is the time to come forward and show your support for Bri. She has millions of things to say that we all want to hear!

So do it now! Post a comment to force - I mean encourage – her to start her own blog! Also, you should suggest a title for her blog, just to give her some ideas to start with. My suggestions are: “To Bri or not to Bri” and “The Leprechaun Cartel”.

How I Found a German Kid - Update

UPDATE! Andreas the German kid emailed me! He is back in Seattle! I have no idea how he got my email but it was so nice to hear from him. I may have had the same email address back then, but I'm not sure.

Real life friends: I will have to have a party at our house and invite him over for all of you to meet. You have all heard so many stories about him!

Here's his email - I blanked out some parts for privacy:

Hi Ashley,

How are you? I don't know if you still know me but I lived in your house in 1999 when I was interning at **** USA Inc. in the ******* office in Kirkland and just wanted to say hi as I am in Seattle again.

I'm doing a trainee program in the U District for 4 months at a company called *******************. Are you still living in the same place as then? I've been to Bellevue Square yesterday but I couldn't remember the street you're living in... How's Tyler doing? And are you married now? Many questions...

What a morning!

I woke up at 7:00 am this morning because I felt something on my face. (Our alarm goes off at 7:45.) I opened my eyes and saw a big black splotch in my vision. I gave my head a shake and the thing flew off onto Abe’s arm. I squinted and saw the outline of a black spider with super long legs. I let out a shriek and David woke up and grabbed it and flushed it down the toilet. What can I say, he’s my hero! He said it was a daddy long legs, but I am not so sure. It was hard for me to tell because I didn’t have my glasses on and that leaves me nearly legally blind. I can’t stop thinking about where it was before I woke up. Was it climbing around in my hair? Did it take a peek in my ear? (Raggedy Angst?!?!) Was it in my mouth? Ewwwww.

I left my laptop at work last night. On the rare occasion that I don’t bring it home with me, I lock it in a file cabinet under my desk. I got to work this morning and tried unlocking the drawer. It wouldn’t unlock! Shit, shit, shit! I can’t work without my laptop. My coworker Tuong tried it and couldn’t get it to open either. He has the same type of file cabinet under his desk so we studied the lock mechanism on his. Get this… He grabs a chopstick and pulls the drawer as far as he can with it locked, sticks the chopstick in and pushes it around until the lock mechanism opened! Can you freaking believe that? He rescued my laptop with a chopstick! Ha ha haaaaaaa! I am not going to use that file cabinet any more.

That has been my day so far. Yikes.

Awesome store!

As you may know I love strange things like plush monsters and Japanese stationary.

Today I found this awesome store. It has some great stuff like the:
Slightly unrelated, but I found this today: The Official Michael Vick Dog Chew Toy!


In response to Raggedy Angst...

I used to hate loaning out Tupperware - you know when you send someone home with leftovers. But now we have the disposable type for leftovers and I could care less if someone returns it. We also have really nice Tupperware that is made of glass. I don't like microwaving plastic even if it was meant for that. I feel like it might be toxic.

I also don’t loan out books unless I am OK with not getting them back. Unless it is to a book lover like Bladio that I KNOW will be careful with it and give it back.

Money – if you loan money you have to expect to never get it back.

Gym Update - 8/7/07

I went three times last week. Blah blah blah.
