Let's be positive, for a change

This week hasn't been the best. I've been in a pretty bad mood for the majority of the week and have made about zero effort to snap out of it. But, since it's Friday and I have a full weekend (of goodbyes) ahead of me, I decided to be a little more positive than I have been the rest of the week and try and not write a blog post that's just me complaining about stuff. YOU'RE WELCOME I DO THIS FOR YOU.

// I used to think I was the only one my age who loves Jeopardy so much and I felt like that made me unique and quirky and nerdy, but apparently it doesn't make me that special because everybody loves Jeopardy. That's fine, now we can all talk about it together! First of all, I'm a huge fan of Trebek's mustache. I think it makes him look so distinguished and I hope he never gets rid of it. What do you think? I heard that people have been voting on which look they like better and it's split pretty evenly, which surprises me.


But let's move on from the mustache because last night one of the most exciting things ever occurred while I was watching Jeopardy with my parents. Are you ready? Are you sure? Fine, I'll tell you. I got Final Jeopardy right and all the contestants and my parents got it wrong hahahahahahaha. 

Historical Figures
A 2012 poll by Britain's National Army Museum voted this man, born in 1732,
as the nation's greatest military enemy.

Do you know it? Make a guess and I'll tell you if you're right. I bet you will be. You guys all seem pretty smart to me. I never get the historical/geographical/scientific questions right so I was super proud of myself. My best categories are "food" and "movies/tv." But mostly food. Especially candy. Suck it, Trebek.

// Speaking of candy, for the past few months I've not been eating it much. This could be a whole other blog post, but for the past few years I've been steadily gaining weight and making some half-assed attempts at getting rid of it. The number on the scale kept creeping up and before I knew it, I had gained 55 pounds since my college graduation. None of my clothes fit (not even my sweatpants!) and I was self-conscious and uncomfortable every day. I came down with some kind of stomach bug a while ago and couldn't eat anything for a couple of days and when I could eat again, I felt like the crap I'd been filling myself with was gone and I decided I wanted to put healthier things into my body and get more active. Since then I've lost a little over 40 pounds and I feel better than I have in a LONG time. I can tell a big difference in my face, so for your viewing pleasure here are two pictures of my face for you to look at you're welcome. You may not be able to tell a difference, but I can and I'm pretty proud of myself.

// My niece is startling to talk more. I haven't heard it but my sister said she says, "Uh oh," "What/s this?" and "Moo." The "moo" is my favorite and I can't wait to hear it.

// Tomorrow is Saturday and I get to sleep in.

// Today I get to eat fish tacos for lunch and I don't know if you know, but these fish tacos I get are starting to rival sandwiches as my favorite food. SO GOOD. I could eat like 12 of them at a time ... but that would probably not be good for the last 13-15 pounds I'm trying to lose. Whatever. I hate you, calories. You have no friends.

I think that's all. Writing down these positive things has actually put me in a better mood ... or maybe that's just the three cups of coffee I've had so far this morning. Who knows? Happy weekend I love you goodbye.

    1. I want to testify that my wife is back after a Divorce !!!

      Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in Texas,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website http://bravespellcaster.yolasite.com,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back.

  2. Sooooo, there's a lot to write here.
    1. I didn't know and wanted to say Napoleon Bonapart ONLY because that's my mom's pig's name. (Do you need a diagram for all that belonging to one another that just happened there)
    2. So I knew I was wrong and I googled the final jeopardy question and guess what? THERE'S AN ENTIRE WEBSITE DEDICATED TO JEOPARDY QUESTIONS AND WRITE UPS. You probably already knew that because you're a second level fan.
    3. The mustache kind of makes him look like creep. I like creeps so he can keep it. (I really only like creeps when it's not dark and we're in an alley.)
    4. All coffee and no wine in the morning makes Juliette a happy clappy. (I needed something to rhyme. Clappy is not a real noun.)

  3. Good job on getting healthier!! I also need to lose some weight and the struggle is very real.

    I also haven't been in the best mood so I haven't blogged in a couple of days. Sometimes a break is what the doc ordered LOL.

    Happy weekend!!

  4. I just tried fish tacos for the first time last month, which is ridiculous, because they are amazingly delicious. I don't know why I waited so long. Congrats on the weigh loss, that's awesome!

  5. First, that moustache makes him look like Mr. Feeny. Also my dad has been rocking a moustache since 1987 and has never changed it, so I may be a little partial. Second, my coffee tasted like dish water this morning so I'm glad you got to drink enough for the both of us. Third, at least your ARE BLOGGING. I haven't touched mine in, ohhhhh, about three weeks. Blogger fail. Fourth, I've never had a fish taco.

  6. Trebek -- I think without the mustache, he looks classy and grandfather-like almost. With the mustache?! Like a total lady killer ... you know, if you're into that older man kind of thing! Ha!

  7. I just have so much to say in response I don’t know where to begin. 1) I have mixed feelings about Alex Trebek’s mustache. I generally do not prefer mustaches as the sole facial hair, if they’re accompanied by a beard of some sort they’re mostly okay. I just can’t say that I enjoy his mustache, though he looks way different without it and I can’t tell how I feel about the difference. I have no idea how people play jeopardy because that question is hard and it’s also not even really a question. I am so proud of you for making healthy changes! Though I think you look beautiful in the picture on the left, you also look beautiful in the picture on the right and I’m happy for you! I really would like to hear Baby Kate say “moo,” though I would prefer if she could say “taco” or “margarita” or something. The end I love you goodbye.

  8. I love love love when I get final jeopardy right and the contestants get it wrong!! It's like I am smarter than them for that brief hint of a second...and goooood luck this weekend with the moving and the goodbyes!! When I came from Philly to FL it was so scarey and so sad but I would never ever go back now!!

  11. I think Alex Trebek looks better with a mustache as well. Probably just because that's the way I'm used to seeing him. Congrats on the weight loss.

  13. Congrats on your weight loss, 40 lbs, that's amazinnnggg (you looked gorgeous before!). I think Alex Trebek looks way better with a mustache as well, it's ironic that he looks LESS creepy w/a mustache than without one....not many men can say that!

    ReplyDelete
  14. So first off, 40lbs... YOU ARE AMAZING AND I'M SO PROUD OF YOU AND I CAN TOTALLY TELL. Second of all, I hate his mustache. I'm so glad it's gone (if you didn't see Monday's episode, then oops). It's just creepy to me. Also, someone needs to tell Jeff up there to go hang out with Calories... looks like they'd make a great ANNOYING pair (lol)
