Why Girls Are Weird

Everyone should read this great book by the incredible Pamela Ribon. (Or Pamie as she is know to many people) She has gone from doing Gilmore Girls re-caps on the website Televison Without Pity to writing her own books. Here is one reason why I think you should read this amazing book:

Backwards Jumping Jacks (and why There is a Bruise on the Back of My Leg)

10 August

Maybe you're one of those perfect people that pay for a gym membership and then always, always go. Every morning you bounce off with your perfect ponytail and your teeth gleam as your perfect little mousy voice goes "Im off to the gym!"

Im not one of those people. Im not even close. I forget to exercise until someone reminds me. I don't like to run unless my life is threatened. I certainly only try to break a sweat during sex.

Also, its hot in Texas. It's particulary hot here in Austin this time of year, and it gets so hot that its physically impossible to move more than a few inches at a time. You have to remain as still as possible, only shifting to lower the air conditioner. It's the only reason i'm still coming to work, since I don't have A/C in my apartment. It's so ridiculously hot that we air condition outside this time of year. Amusement parks like Six Flags don't want a thousand people dropping from heat stroke while waiting in line for the Log Flume, so the outdoor areas have overhead cooling units. Mmm, Lovely Overhead Cooling Unit. Why don't you move into my apartment building?

Still can't understand what kind of hot i'm talking about? You try it. Lock yourself in your bathroom, turn on the shower at its hottest setting, and put on a few sweaters. That's what it feels like to walk outside these days. Go sprint in that, bitch.

There's this wedding coming up that I mentioned before, and I'm pretty sure that as my friend was measuring my hips she was shaking her head and sucking her teeth. I could be horrible here and mention that she was measuring my hip to foot distance I noticed that the hair on the top of her hair was thinning and I could see her scalp. But that would be mean and i'm not a mean person so I didn't say that. I don't know where you heard that.

Since I just broke down after seeing my measurments on paper yesterday, I decided to grab an old Tae Bo tape and work out. You remember Tae Bo, don't you? With everyone's favorite scary, sweaty, black man, Billy Blanks? His name's a registered trdemark, don't you know.

How could you not want to read something like that? LOL! Its one of the most hilarious books I have ever read and I highly recomend anyone to read it. And if you are curious about other things Pamie has wrote check out her awesome blog
