Love Is A Battlefield – Pat Benatar

18 Feb

I was driving around with my friend when this song came on the radio and made both of us singing and dancing in the car. Pat Benatar is great! So dramatic and the dance at the end of the video just kills me but I’m guessing it was a cool video when it first came out in the 80s.

Enjoy!!

Here I Though I Was Being Good!

10 Feb

You know when you’re up late and hungry? It’s too late to eat food and it’s still a long time till breakfast time. So i was experiencing one of those nights and i though I was being good and just settling for some yogurt and fruit, peach is my favorite!

Chobani Greek yogurt with peach

So I sat down with my yogurt and continued watching my 2am rerun of Top Gear. This fruity yogurt was a new brand I never heard of, Chobani. I got that day from McEwan and excited about trying it.

It tasted different from other brands I’ve tried, creamy yet still felt like I was eating cottage cheese, YUCK! But I still didn’t mind the yogurt and I finished it.

After I put the last spoon in my mouth I started reading the labels around the little container and the more I read, the more I felt guilty about eating my healthy snack.

Greek yogurt, non-fat, 140 calories!!! What the hell…… That’s a meal!!!

So late night snackers be aware, read the label before you eat away. You never know what you’re getting yourself into, a night of guilt and the need to go for a run!

From Paddington Bears to Top Gear

7 Feb

Being a fan of British anything I recently came across an interesting fact about two of my favorite Brit things, Paddington toy bear and Jeremy Clarkson, the host of Top Gear.

The first Paddington Bear was created by Gabrielle Designs in 1972, a small business run by Shirley and Eddie Clarkson, with the prototype made as a Christmas present for their children Joanna and Jeremy Clarkson. According to Clarkson’s bio, he’s parents couldn’t pay the fees for his school, but thanks to their home-made christmas gift to their children they managed to put both Jeremy and his sister in very good schools. But Clarkson was not the most well-behaved student though and eventually he was kicked out the Repton school for smoking and drinking and making a fool out of himself. I guess not that much has changed since he was younger!

I just thought that was a weird connection between these two things and worth sharing!

Update – Vancouver Olympics 2010

3 Feb

I guess now that we got a little bit of snow, the Olympics organizers in Vancouver can take a sigh of relief.

I was reading somewhere that pretty much all the snow on the mountains has to be artificial and even then there might not be enough to cover everything. How funny would it be if 2 days before the Olympics start we have to cancel it. I don’t think anything like that has ever happened, and if they cancel it does that mean there would be no Olympics in 2010 or that the location has to be different? So confusing. But either way, world, have no fear. We have snow now!!!!
