Since Katy Perry's "California Gurls" Plays on All 3 Local Stations Simultaneously Every 3 Minutes

....since several of you inquired about VC's fire juggling. (Fire juggling is an essential skill for 14 year olds. ;-) )

....since I am being featured on Mocha Dad's blog today!!! (Please head on over and show him some love! )

...and especially since I haven't posted a video of VC jugging in at least 3 months, I figured no one would object...

VC edits and choreographs to the music all on his own. Here's his latest creation:

Health Update: The endocrinologist confirmed the diagnosis of Hashimoto's...Then he scoffed (or maybe it was more like a "polite chuckle") when I mentioned my research on being able to control the progression of the disease with diet alone...BAH! I shall not be deterred in my quest to avoid taking medication for the rest of my life....I'll keep ya posted!

He did some additional labwork, and when I called today to get the results, the nurse seriously pulled up my chart and then told me that the results had been mailed out this morning so I would need to wait to receive them. She had the results RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER. I'm strongly beginning to question this new practice. No wonder the U.S. healthcare system is going down the crapper!!!!!

Hey Mon!

There is something to be said for the living the life of a Rastafarian.



This weekend we attended Floydfest in the aptly named Floyd, VA. It is NOT Pink Floyd-fest. Somebody asked me that earlier today, assuming it was and that I was "much cooler than they thought" (uh, talk about a backhanded compliment!) Hey now, I do own The Wall.

One of the reasons I was clued in that there were many Rastafarians in attendance was that at the food vending area, there was a booth called "Pasta-far-i" :D (most of the other attendees were "upscale hippies" and plain boring people like us ;-) )




[caption id="attachment_2524" align="aligncenter" width="403" caption="This Guy Was Awesome!"][/caption]

We saw lots of amazingly cool folk, like this guy, who made a pendant for VC with this "guillotine-like" contraption. He would hit the three bells and chant before "releasing" the guillotine to punch the pendant. (now there's a fun job - maybe I can interview for that the next time I have a longer than 8 minute interview) VC's pendant featured the Eye of Horus on one side and and Juggling Court Jester on the other.

Which reminds me that the main purpose of our visit was that VC would be street performing.

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="461" caption="VC Playing with Fire"]Photobucket[/caption]


People were very laid back despite the 95 degree temps and camping within inches of each other for three night's in a row. (We just headed up for the day) .... Some would be walking along and spontaneously break out in dance. There were official "compost people" posted near the trash cans to make sure everything was sorted properly. (Well, I'm not sure that that was "Rasta" but it was very earthy)...People were walking around in bare feet covered in dust but didn't seem to have a care in the world.

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="461" caption="VC and Friends at Floydfest"]Photobucket[/caption]

"Type A" anals like me and MB could take some cues from these people. We are always stressed out thinking what the next day will hold. That didn't appear to be the case with the fun-loving people we saw. Oh, to be able to live like that! I swear one of these days I'm gonna toss the computer and simplify my life. Have you ever looked at people who are able to always walk around with a smile and sense of peace and wondered why you can't do that???

------------------------------------------------------

P.S. I was not very "Rasta" while preparing this post. Although I've heard that self-hosted Wordpress is "God's Gift to Blogging" (just made that up hee hee) -- photos have become a huge headache for me, so you will probably be seeing more photo-free posts until I regain my patience, which could potentially be in the year 2015.

P.P.S. If anyone hosts their photos on photobucket and can tell me how to get vertical pics to post vertically instead of horizontally, I'd love your help. This whole "hosting photos elsewhere thing" is a huge PITA.

P.P.P.S. Thank you to the 7 readers who have been continuing to read my blog over the summer.

P.P.P.P.S. Still time to get some beyoot-iful skin!

Lesson Learned

Yesterday I had the quickest interview in recorded history. I arrived. Waited 5 minutes and then the guy who was also named "VC" came out to interview me. Outside. It was 7:30 PM in the South.

If you haven't already noticed, I have blindingly white skin so I cringed knowing I would be eaten alive. (It was an inner-cringe-outside- happy- interview- face kinda thing)

He asked me all the standard questions. I inwardly cringed again when he got to the part about cleaning bathrooms. But I confess that I then outwardly cringed when he told me the salary was minimum wage and that they are not permitted to go above it. (I found that surprising since it is more of an "upscale" location.)

I was home by 7:38 PM. BIGGEST WASTE OF TIME. EVER.

Yet, it did cause me to appreciate my job more than I have over the previous three and a half years so it wasn't all bad.

*SIGH*

Be nice if they had posted the "salary" on the job listing. It's a good this blog is so darn lucrative ;-)

I am not a prima donna by any stretch of the imagination, but cleaning bathrooms and making minimum wage, I think I can do a teensy bit better than that....He's supposed to call next week after he makes his final decision, as there are several candidates. Hopefully they will enjoy cleaning the bathrooms.

Disclaimer: I am not criticizing those who clean bathrooms. I clean two and a half baths each week. Sometimes I even clean the one in the man cave. Now who's the brave one???

How long was your shortest interview?

Guess Who's Back??

awwwwwww...sorry to disappoint - but it's just lil' ole me - back after a brief Carma Sez blackout that 90% of you probably never even noticed :-O The bandwith has been upgraded (thanks Pepper) - and I'm ready to blog on about useless carp like I usually do :D

Firstly, I may have a case of "swimmer's ear" which is ironic given my swimming ability. Probably caused when the "cute little angels" at the pool during the fourth of July festivities splashed water on me and the lifeguard several times. The lifeguard then lectured them to move away if they were going to be splashing violently. I politely endured their wrath for several minutes before making it to calmer "seas."

Looks like I may have an interview coming up. I'm skeered. I haven't interviewed in years for anything and I am notorious for my horrible interviewing skills. Doesn't help that it is at a place where most of the employees are my son's age. Matter of fact the person who will be interviewing me has the exact same name as my son (which incidentally is not VC ;-) )

I'd love any suggestions that you may have. I won't rule out that I may break out in hives at some point...

When 18 year old's are allegedly getting botox *cough* Charice Pempengco *cough* how the heck are the rest of us who are a bit "longer in the tooth" going to be able to compete. Ok, so it may have been to treat her TMJ (riiiiiggghhhht) - but still....and Thermage?? I once attended a Thermage seminar 6 year ago; No, I did NOT get it done. I came to my senses. [realized I should have included a better explanation: this is the singer who is 18 who "allegedly" had botox and Thermage before she guest-starred on Glee in order that her face would look more narrow and be more "fresh-faced" - uh, she's 18 - how much more "fresh-faced" can you get -- to look 9??]

VC is my biggest supporter (except when it comes to my granny gear) - and he has been providing lots of encouragement. He thinks I can take on the teens and twentysomethings....we'll see about that ...

After several days of Leapin' Lemurs gluten free cereal my gums are a bit torn up, but it is quite yummy.

Leapin' Lemurs

I need not be so impatient and give the soymilk some time to be absorbed. Still, it appears I may be one of the few people to actually gain weight on a gluten free diet :-( note to self: cut back on Leapin' Lemurs to once a day ;-) and ease up on the cheese Gromit...

How is your week going??

My Latest Foe: Hashimoto's (alternate title: "Hashimoto's Can Kiss My Lily White Butt")

Things have been very quiet around here. Almost too quiet. I get very suspicious when things are quiet, usually with good reason. I haven't had a formidable foe since the Bellydance Smackdown days....

and then comes my recent diagnosis: Hashimoto's Disease :-(

If you are not familiar with Hashimoto's, it is an autoimmune disorder where the body basically attacks the thyroid gland, leading to all sorts of fun symptoms, like fatigue, hair loss, anxiety, depression, hoarseness, puffy face, weight gain, muscle aches, increased sensitivity to cold, etc. etc. etc. There is no cure, but it is commonly treated with Synthroid which is basically synthetic thyroid hormone. There is much debate over whether this is the best route to take...

Going back over two years, at my physical my TSH levels were "off" - I was prescribed medication but it sent my readings out of range in the total opposite direction -- since then I have not been taking any medication. I became concerned when at my physical this year, my TSH level was still high (signifying hypothyroidism) -- I went back on medication for three weeks and could not tolerate it.

I figured there was nothing left to do, until a few weeks ago when I was working out and flipping channels (see a pattern here?). My ears perked up when on a local TV show, they had a "thyroid specialist." I listened intently, and made an appointment to see him. His theory is that in a high percentage of those being treated for hypthyroidism there is really an underlying cause: Hashimoto's Disease- that needs to be treated, especially since the odds are that if you have one autoimmune disorder there is a big chance you will get another if you do not get it under control...

I signed up to take the thyroid antibody test to see if this was the case, and sure enough, my results came back positive, which pretty much sucked.

I've made an appointment to meet with an endocrinologist in the hopes that he can work with me to minimize the symptoms/slow the progression through changes to my diet. I've been doing some reading and appears that a Gluten Free diet may help. I've been trying that for over a week and it hasn't been all sunshine and roses!!!

Whatever it takes to beat this into submission, that's what I'm willing to do...

So when you may have read my previous post and thought, "pffffft -- like she's ever had a problem maintaining her weight" - au contraire, mon frere!! I struggle just like everyone else...

It is what it is I guess, but I'm not that good at accepting things - and I'm not one who wants to be pitied, so I just move on but continue to research as best I can and seek help if need be....

I promise this will not become a blog about illness, but I will mention my progress every now and then for those who may be interested in lifestyle/diet changes that I am making and how they are working. If that's not your cup o' tea, I'll have plenty of other topics interspersed as well like I normally do :-)

P.S. Thanks to those of you who have already grabbed my new button!

Here's My Get Rich Quick Plan Plus A Quick Distraction

....I'm gonna write a book about food/eating and go on Oprah so she can say it is the best diet breakthrough ever and that it will change the way you think about food!!! Because you know this has never been done before.

Oh, but before I launch into that topic, did anyone see Enrique Iglesis on the Today Show this morning? I missed the first songs but saw him singing Hero to that chick he pulled from the crowd. I swear he is so smoldering that I had a big grin on my face while working out. How does one get to be so hot!!! It was one of those hot, yet creepy scenes especially when he gave her a full on kiss at the end. Fine. I'm just jealous it wasn't me ;-)

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy



*Heads off to Travelocity to book ticket to watch him waterski naked in Biscayne Bay*

Anyoprah, on Monday I meant to watch her show featuring Geneen Roth, the author of Women, Food and God, only I forgot. (I think this program aired originally sometime in the spring. But that's good ole Carma for ya, way behind the news).....Since we live in the dark ages with no Ti-Vo or DVR (long story) -- if I don't watch it at the exact time, I'm pretty much SOL.

Later that evening I realized I had missed it so I went to Oprah's website to view the slideshow. Because you know I had to learn this monumental lesson that would change the way I think about food.

*I am not making light of the topic, just can't seem to see what the fuss was all about* In short:

1. Listen to your body. Stop eating when you are full. What, say that again: stop eating when you are full!!

2. It's not the food you are craving, ask yourself:

- Do I want somebody to listen to me. Heck, yeah!!
- Do I want somebody to pay attention to me. I like attention.
- Do I want to be validated. What is this, a parking garage? <------------- bad, bad humor

3. Kids mimic what their parents do - in terms of eating to escape things they don't want to do. Do you mean the reason VC heads to the fridge whenever its "vacuum your room time" - it's because he doesn't want to do it? This is revolutionary stuff here. I hope you are taking notes.

4. You need to "bring yourself back" - fill yourself up first so you will be able to give that to your children; blah blah blah -- the overused cliche of putting on your own oxygen mask first. *Yawns*

5. Many people don't know how to recognize hunger. Wha???????????? One would think the stomach growl would be a good tip-off.

6. People eat to avoid other feelings entirely. Oh, and then there was this priceless quote as an example: "...But overeating does not lead to rapture: It leads to burping and farting and being so sick that you can't think of anything but how full you are. That's not love; that's suffering."

7. The book isn't about losing weight, it's about finding who you are. OK.

8. Women eat for different reasons: They are frustrated, bored, tired; Now, this could explain why I am ravenous when I get home from my job of doing nothingness for 7 hours....

Did anybody read this book and find it was a breakthrough that changed their way of eating?-- am I being too shortsighted, 'cuz I surely think I could have come up with these tidbits on my own. Is it because she used the word 'God' in the title that sets it apart from other books that say basically the same thing?

Enlighten me.

P.S. My new button is up if you would like to replace the old one with this spankin' new shiny one

P.P.S. There is a scientific reason my face is on it--- I am not thinking "I'm so fab" *snaps fingers bobs head* or anything of the sort...

25 More Things You Wish You Did Not Know About Me & A Winner!

I haven't done a meme in about 6 months, so consider this my bi-annual meme. There is a good chance I may not do another one for another 6 months. Kristie, a fellow Southerner (she's a self-professed hillbilly; I'm a Southern suburbanite), tagged me and I decided to take on the challenge of coming up with 25 more things that I haven't mentioned in my profile. I doubt I can top her lack of hot gorilla action. I'd be having plenty of that only I've come down with a bad case of shin splints. Here we go:

1. Although I am a Southerner, I am not one by birth and therefore if you met me you would not realize I was a Southerner, even though I have lived in the south for 17 years. That said, I often say "all y'all."

2. I find it very difficult to lie; I break out in hives

3. When shopping, I like to buy things in even numbers, so if I am buying tomato puree , for example, I normally put 4 cans in the cart - as opposed to three or five

4. I cannot whistle

5. My legs are 79% hair free

6. I like Eminem. Have for years. (I may not agree with the misogynistic lines in some of his previous albums, but I respect his talent) As always, feel free to disagree :D

7. I've tried eating vegetarian burgers a few times but when I hit on something "hard" I immediately think of gristle and have to spit it out (rest assured this is not done at the table)

8. I don't like to offend people, and if I think I may have offended someone it keeps me up at night (srsly)

9. I'd love to get a "past life regression" done only I'm too "frugal"; this kind of thing fascinates me - esp after what I've read on the topic

10. When I was young I always wanted to be an artist

11. I've settled on working at a dead end job in an art-related field

12. I have three piercings in my left ear; one in my right (in addition to the navel piercing that was just begging for an 'inappropriate top')

13. I have a HUGE fear of never accomplishing anything of significance in my lifetime

14. I've been told (by a teen I am related to) that I have a "little kid voice" that I use when speaking to little kids and that it is supposedly "annoying." I plan on continuing to use it. Often.

15. I rarely ever parallel park; I'll take the time to find a regular spot - and this bothers "the boys"

16. I passed my driver's test the first time, but had one strike against me for "attention"

17. I don't always pay close attention

18. I rarely ever drink; not for moral reasons, just doesn't appeal to me; I'd be happy with a Kool Aid

19. I wish that I had nicer eyelids so that I could wear eyeshadow without it completely disappearing once I open my eyes

20. I am in awe of creative geniuses

21. I am hooked on a rice and black bean dish that I have been making at least twice a week

22. I avoid wearing flipflops

23. I am anti-hammertoe

24. I could easily get by without a cell phone

25. I graduated Summa Cum Laude - haven't done much with my degree; but this fact is good to put in memes so I appear intelligent ;-)

If you would like to participate in this meme, consider yourself tagged. Please let me know if you do it so I can be sure to visit your blog.

Project Cheeseball and a Movie Recommendation


Now that my blog layout ooooozes sophistication ;-) you may have thought that Project Cheeseball was but a long forgotten memory. Not so, my friends!

My absolute favorite fashion blogger, Kristin from Bon Bon Rose Girls caught me off guard over the weekend with this absolutely precious cheeseball photo op:

Here's her son, aka The Dude - who recently celebrated his second birthday- with an UTZ-tacular snack. What can I say, the dude's got it goin' on. Look how he carefully supports himself with extended leg so that he can ensure his cheesy snack time is not interrupted by a tumble. He is quite the multitasker. Gets that from mom I'll bet!




[caption id="attachment_2233" align="aligncenter" width="317" caption="This Dude's Got Taste!"][/caption]

Thank you Kristin! I know that a lot of you already follow Kristin and Megan's fine blog, but if you are not yet a follower, head on over ---- they have a weeklong giveaway going on :-)



Just saw Despicable Me this afternoon and I absolutely Loved It!! It is incredibly clever and heartfelt *dabs eyes with hankie* -- (I am a softie for any movie involving sweet kids who've had a difficult lot in life) I even got another Life Lesson that I plan to add to my list-- If you are living your life in such a way that you are still trying to please your parents, there comes a time when you gotta do your own thing and follow your heart; you'll be surprised how freeing it can be! (I know that sounds very sappy - I'm slowly turning into one of Oprah's touchy feely "gurus" )

P.S. If you have not already weighed in on my "inappropriate top" - still time -- I'm made of Teflon!

P.P.S. My giveaway ends tomorrow

P.P.P.S. If you are interested in participating in Project Cheeseball, I'm always eagerly accepting photos. If Utz Cheeseballs are not available at your local big box store, you can find them online directly through Utz or from Amazon.com Disclaimer: I am *unfortunately* not compensated by Utz - if you have an Utz hookup I'm all ears :D

Since We All Know There is Nothing More Important Going on In the World Than My Wardrobe

[caption id="attachment_2188" align="aligncenter" width="323" caption="Me in My Granny Shirt "][/caption]


I wanted to post the "old lady shirt" (see previous post) that I wore to VC's "moving on" ceremony...

Now I'll go on record as saying that I lurve this shirt. As I said it was purchased at J. Jill which is where I picked up a bunch of clothes for work. And the cool thing is that it is puckered with little holes throughout it...I liked it so much I also picked up one in lilac. Granny shirts rock!!!

I even had in mind when putting it on that day that I wanted to look a little fashionable. LOL. We see how that worked out :D

Thank you for your honest opinions on my last post (a fun read if you get a chance to revisit the comments). As MB always tells me, be careful what you ask for! I asked for brutal honesty and that's what I got... Am I gonna toss out the shirt, uh no, but I will reserve it exclusively for dance class.

In other news, I was at the local health food market yesterday after getting a health diagnosis (more on that later) -- and as I approached the checkout line the guy in front of me was all friendly, with a "hi, how are you doing" as if he knew me - very bizarre-- then he looks at what I am buying and asks what I plan to cook with it. Weird. Even odder was that when I glanced at what he was purchasing, it was a six pack of beer, yet all the bottles were not the same size. Is there such a thing as mix and match beer???

Have a lovely Sunday :-)

P.S. Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale at the Gap on Women's and Men's Tops -- I just picked up 2 polo shirts and 2 v-necks for a grand total of $14!!

Is This Top Inappropriate

For someone of my age??




[caption id="attachment_1890" align="aligncenter" width="323" caption="Inappropriate Dance Attire?"][/caption]

VC (for those who don't regularly read my blog - VC is a 14 year old) came home from skating last night and was totally aghast when he saw me in this outfit. He couldn't believe I wore it outside the house and thought I was trying to be teenager.

I explained that the top is the newest dance top that my instructor sells at the studio (logo has been blurred). I liked it because she funked it up by cutting the back, like so:

[caption id="attachment_1891" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="The Back (You can tell this by the tag)"][/caption]

Which only added to his displeasure. When I turned around VC was fit to be tied, he thought it was completely scandalous and was concerned that I might get arrested by mall security if I wore it at the local mall (where they have strict rules for teens)....

And when I told him that I may have worn it to skating once, he about passed out...

I did feel a little tacky wearing it skating so I won't be doing that again anytime soon. But that's neither here or there. Some of the girls at the dance class wear those tiny bra tops so compared to them this is schoolmarm-ish.

I may not be in my twenties or even my thirties, but I'll be darned if I'm gonna dress like Frumpy McFrumpster in my forties!!

What's your opinion? Please be honest. Agreement is not required :D

P.S. Whenever I do these belly dance posts I like to reiterate that I am NOT THAT GOOD A DANCER...This was further evidenced when I saw the video of the last recital *cringes*

P.P.S. I also need to add that this is the same kid who thought the shirt I wore to his middle school moving on ceremony was "old lady-ish" (sure it was from J. Jill - but it was one of their more 'edgy' items ;-) ) and that the shorts I wore a week ago looked like "grandma shorts." I can't win!!

P.P.P.S. $60 Gift Certificate to CSN Stores still up for grabs!

Don't Bite Me!

I just about had to stop the elliptical this morning when I turned on the TV in the middle of the CBS "Health Segment" regarding the topic of "vampire-like biting" that is going on amongst the teen set.

WTH??? Apparently it is the modern-day "hickey" :D and a way to mark "territory."

The Early Show had on their chief medical correspondent who explained in bullet-list form when to head to the doctor - e.g. blood, pus, infected skin.... and treatment options- including antibiotics via intravenous IV.

How about this option: Stop biting each other! It's CREEPY!

Da Boyz Bringin' It Home!

It's been a hectic 4th of July weekend. My plan to get in lots of naps backfired. One thing I did not want to miss was the yearly party at the local swimming hole. MB and VC have had the pool competitions on their mind since the season started.

Last year, MB won the "Biggest Splash - 13 and over category" and I'm happy to report that he is still the reigning champ, having won again this year. VC won in the category of "Smallest Splash - 13 and over" as well as placing second in "Coolest Trick" category. As you can see, they won some awesome prizes, in the form of Nerds Rope!


While neither placed in the "Best Bellyflop" category, VC had fun with this one:


MB declined to participate, despite my encouragement, because I just KNEW he would be a shoe-in considering this video we filmed a few weeks ago. You can see his bellyflop at the end- "aussiediabolo" is VC's youtube name. You can see his "540 flip" in this video - which is what he won with in the Coolest Trick category.



Oh, my bathing suit was the same as the girl with the orange and white strip suit - only mine was green and white. I'll leave it to your imagination so the photo does not make the rounds on the internets ;-) I did not enter any of the swim competitions. As I've said earlier, my skill level is around the "Guppy level" -- I did do some "Extreme Floating Around With Noodle" though :D

But enough about us, how was your Fourth???

P.S. If you want to know MB's secret to winning the Biggest Splash - it's called "8 hotdogs and a boatload of brownies" beforehand :D

P.P.S. Yes, there is still time to enter the giveaway

I May Need to Re-Think This

Remember my quest to one day look like Ernestine when I am 73? I may need to 'x' that one off my bucket list. You see, I've been wondering what would happen to my newly muscled body if I stopped weightlifting.

[caption id="attachment_1839" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="GAH!"][/caption]

Now I know....

(Not that there is anything wrong with the second pic *as I backpedal as fast as I can* - other than the circumstances surrounding the pic) -- but do you mean to tell me that within 5 years I would be not quite so muscle-y? [the photo at left was taken in 2005; the photo at right is the same person today]

Meantime I shall stick to the hand weights that give me just enough tone-- "easily absorbable tone" - in the event I stop working out. Not that I have a track record of stopping and starting things ;-)

Have a Happy 4th!

Kickin' It Old School (Redux)

I hate to say it, but I was compelled to break out the skates yet again last night for the Adult Skate Night MB has been organizing. It is "adult" in the sense of no kids to trample over - not "adult" in the other sense (get your minds out of the gutter ;-) )...

Here we are clowning around:

[caption id="attachment_1773" align="aligncenter" width="363" caption="Dahling, Let's Shuffle Skate Like It's 1983"][/caption]

MB has got quite a "family" at the rink...and I've enjoyed getting to know everybody. The DJ (aka Chops) plays our favorite 80's & 90's tunes. He covered all my requests: It Takes Two, Ice Ice Baby (heck yea!) - not to mention White Lines - a song that lasts approximately 7 minutes and guess who jammed through the entire 7 minutes??

There was an air conditioning leak which meant a pile of towels was surrounded by cones right in the middle of the skating lane. And guess which "pro" forgot it was there not once, but twice...tee hee :D :D

Does this post make me sound like a huge dork!! *contemplates hitting 'delete' key and starting over with more innocuous post about recycling*

Oh, the real reason for posting skating pics is to show off my latest "score" --
check out this outfit from The GAP that I purchased over the weekend:

[caption id="attachment_1774" align="aligncenter" width="323" caption="Wow, That's Quite a Deal, Carma!"][/caption]

Total $35.00 !!!!

The pant legs were a little "formfitting" which meant I couldn't bend my legs, but who needs to bend legs when skating??? :D

I often wonder if the "gap" in GAP stands for "huge gap in waist above buttocks" because whenever I try on their pants that's pretty much what it looks like - hence the belt.

If you enter my giveaway, I will send you a virtual kiss and hug because giveaway enterers rock!!
