I finally saw the third Hunger Games movie, part 1. Then I instantly remembered why I stopped reading the third book. It’s soooo slow at the beginning. All she does is say “NO, I WON’T BE THE MOCKINGJAY!” “FINE, I’LL BE THE MOCKINGJAY!” “NO, I CAN’T BE THE MOCKINGJAY”. It’s this continuous circle that never ends. I get it, she’s distraught. I would be too. But I have sh*t to do in my life, so you need to make up your mind or I’m giving up on this book. Oh wait, I did give up on the book. So I was super pumped to see the movie and see what happens. Hot damn was it slow at the beginning. But then it got good. And I really dug it. Jennifer Lawrence is just so great.
When I see Chia Pet commercials, I sometimes think about growing greenery in my stomach when I eat chia seeds. You too? No? Cool.
Can you believe how fast the holidays are coming up? It’s insane. I haven’t bought anything for anyone. F*ck. I’m just now thinking about that. Malls are just the worst places ever. And planning thoughtful things ahead of time ain’t my thing. I wish I was more thoughtful, but I’m just not. Maybe a good New Years resolution this year? For sure. I just can’t believe it’s almost Christmas. What made it really set in is having our annual CrossFit Broadway christmas party this past weekend. Gym Christmas parties are seriously the best. Because you only ever see people in workout clothes….and sober. So when you get well dressed, pretty healthy people all liquored up, some true colors are shown. And those true colors are really fun to watch.
Sadly, the first two years I went to the Christmas party, I blacked out so my true, unfortunate colors were shown. Last years party was short lived since we had another party that night. But this year was perfect. Since I’m a terrible drinker, I had 2 gin and tonics and was ready to get my dance on and watch people creep on each other. Not too drunk, just enough alcohol to promote me to flail my arms in any desired manner. In the end, my control with alcohol kept me happily satisfied the next day when I didn’t wake up completely miserable. No wait, I kind of did. But that was because of my Thursday, Friday and Saturday workouts. I’m seriously still sore today after resting two days. What gives. Anywho, the Christmas party was a success. I have my fingers crossed that a few love connections were made. Guess they were more of a one night sort of love connection, but I’m happy for them.
