I didn't do a Friday Matinee on Monday today for several reasons. First, I went to see Hancock last Friday, July 4Th, and there's nothing playing that I care to see, or that I'd even be willing to sit through for the sake of my
readers. The Love Guru is too weird for me to enjoy. But I can't wait for Momma Mia! I might see it twice. was aqua aerobics day. That's right! When I join in with a group of other people who live here at the compound. We kind of wiggle and kick, and splash, and giggle, and wiggle again.

That's why I go in the pool every morning and early evening by myself to do real aqua aerobics.A few weeks ago I bought one of these noodles to use in the pool when I do my aqua aerobics. The first time I used it, it was very apparent to me some of the folks were green with envy.
I didn't realize what a commotion I had caused. So today, just to show what a good egg I am, I went to WallyWorld and bought some to "share". Have you ever seen a happier group?
Oh this Romeo, can't seem to hang out with the ladies enough. He even goes to the stretch and sew classes.

So now, it's almost time for the Bachelorette Finale. Will DeAna pick Jason, the father of a three year old son, or the ever so hot Jesse, the professional snowboarder? On that same subject, I can hardly believe that my readers voted overwhelmingly for Jason. We shall see.

I can't wait for Mamma Mia either. I have seen the play twice and love it.

I hate them noodles. When my kids were younger they used them as weapons. Ever get hit with a wet noodle? Hurts!!!!

I want to live in your compound. And have men follow me to stich and sew. And frolic in the pool twice a day....Is there an age restriction in the reverse direction, in other words can a 40-something crazy woman live where you do? Oops, I didn't mean crazy. Eccentric. Just like Mr. Sew and Stitch.

Grandma J said...

HSH, the pics aren't real except for the part with me in them:)

#2, you like grandman?

#1, weapons? If you have noodles you have to use them responsibly

CBW, yeah we have age restrictions but no one actually makes you prove it. The thing is...if you have a car you are extremely popular.

I love noodles. We play a game at youth group with them where you get to hit people with them. It's great!

Way to share!

AND...oh my gosh! I can't believe that loser Jesse won. I SO am in love with Jason and Ty!

I used to take aqua aerobics and the noodle was mandatory..but they had them there at the Y for everyone to use. I think it's the best exercise in the world.

Hubby and my step son saw movies w/out me :-(... so we ended up w/ Get Smart this weekend, it was cute.

I didn't know who those boys Jason and Jesse were...I thought they were your kids or something. OMG I'm such a loser...LOL at myself

Jason said...

I'm also excited for Mamma Mia! I can't IMAGINE it will be as good as the play.

And I'm so sad that Jason lost. But then again, maybe he'll come to his senses now and come and join Giancarlo and me in our marriage.

That noodle story is too nice of you to share the love.

You're the best pirate blogger EVER, Grandma J! Gimme an AARRRR, ha ha.

Thanks for playing along with my particular brand of insanity, and for not caring that shoes are last on my list of must-haves.

I just LOVE that you bought noodles for your friends : ). People on compounds need JOY wherever they can get it, so I am glad you supplied some! I am SO busy this week at work, I can't even think about blogging. But you know what? I couldn't resist coming to your blog and seeing what new adventures you have been having! And then of course I just had to comment.
