We bought this "treadmill" at Sp*rts Auth*rity last Saturday. Secret Agent Man went above and beyond what I expected him to do by buying the one with a TV and fan! The salesdude was very knowledgeable and did an exhaustive job explaining the return policy and extended warranty (hhhmmm.) We got it home, hauled it upstairs, set it up. The TV is awesome, there is even a cable hook up. The fan works great. It even takes my pulse. But, the dang thing won't move. The tread mill part doesn't work! But, I'm having a great time watching TV standing up and taking my pulse with cool air blowing on me.
After an hour on the phone with a customer service rep who has never actually seen one of these in real life, they are going to send us a new mother board...via USPS...that we can replace ourselves... by just connecting twenty simple wires...in 7 to 10 days when it arrives.
I can't even begin to tell you how frustrating it is to spend that kind of money on something that doesn't work!

Warning: You will not get that four and half minutes back!
I have to admit to crying when Marie fainted on DWS last night. I watched this clip over and over on my DVR. You can hear her panting in the background before she took a dive. I called mymomma and Carronin in a panic. "Oh no! Not Marie!" I'm glad she's okay. Of course she fainted. She is working so hard, dropping weight like crazy, and they have her vacuumed sealed in that costume. I LOVE YOU MARIE! I'M THERE FOR YOU! BUT,I hope I grow up to look like Jane Seymour.
Mel B. should dance to her own songs more often! Spice Girl reunion? I'm sure someone out there is excited about it.
Did anyone else watch Samantha Sometimes? I've never been a big Christina Applegate fan, but this show was pretty funny.
Was anyone else suckered into watching the Bachelor to watch "the biggest emotional breakdown in Bachelor history?" It wasn't that dramatic. She didn't faint or nothin'. Sure her mascara ran and she was totally dillusional about the guys feelings for her, but I was expecting her to be carried off in a straight jacket. No such luck. You know these Bachelors have certain rules about what they can and can't say to the girls. Despite that, he tried to let her know that he thought of her as just a friend, but she wasn't hearing it. She heard what she wanted to hear. She needs to get a copy of that book, He's Just Not That Into You. Men are not that difficult to decipher if you just listen.
I still have two more shows to watch. I have Chuck and Heroes recorded. Hooray for Monday and DVR!

Mini Me and Secret Agent Man on the Tooth Fairy:
Mini Me: I bet the Tooth Fairy is pretty.
S.A.M: I bet she is a pretty as your mom. (Awww... isn't he sweet?)
Mini me: I bet she is twice as pretty as Mom.
S.A.M.: How is that?
Mini Me: She is like me and Mom put together, but without four eyes, two noses, and two mouths!

Freaky, give-me-nightmares decoration. Who would take something as sweet as a holiday wreath and turn it into something creepy? Probably the same people who came up with these...
P.S. Soul Stealing Ghoul Wreath available for sale at Michael's for $59.99, just in case you are into that sort of thing.

But, they didn't leave me completely alone. I have the 6 kids that are attached to these 12 feet. I bow down to the mommies who feed this many everyday! You know who you are. Carronin left me with these books to keep me company too. I like to try to picture the characters in my head. Remember the show Roswell? I imagine them to look like the teenage aliens on that show. Although I know it doesn't bode well with the authors description, when I think of hyper-sensitive, hyper-hormonal teenagers with super powers this is what I come up with .
Attention Good Mail Girls; I am way overdue to thank super cutie Lauren for the "Office Supplies." Thank you! You made me smile and laugh. Also, it was Ribbon Rock Star's birthday yesterday. Show her some love!

Last Saturday, I gave in and told them they could play over there for an hour. I thought it was weird when them came home after only 30 minutes. I didn't fnd out until bedtime why they came home early.
It wasn't five minutes after I shut off their lights, they were downstairs and crying. They said they had seen a scary movie at the neighbors. I told them they could sleep in my bed. I told them what they saw wasn't real. I asked them if the mom knew what they were watching, they said she did (that's questionable.) I asked the boy, who seemed less freaked out, what the movie was about. He said it was about man eating worms. Turns out the movie was Tremors. (Thanks a lot Kevin Bacon!) I haven't seen it, my husband has.
The next morning they were fine and it was all but forgotten, but I did let my boys know that they weren't going over there again. I told them I was sorry. This was my fault. I didn't know the lady as well as I should have and obviously they have different rules at their house. The one good thing that came out of it is now my boys appreciate more and understand why we have some of the rules that we do.
I vacillated on whether to say something to the neighbor lady or not. I have to live in this neighborhood for a long time and I would just rather avoid strained relations.
What would you have done?
