Chrissy's real truth about life that no one will tell you.

"It's far better to be a smart ass than a dumb ass. "

I love a parade

Monday, May 28, 2012

On this Memorial Day, we salute those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Freedom.

Here are some shots from our parade. I love the small town feel of a local parade. Keep in mind, it's almost 90 degrees so you have to feel sorry for anyone in a costume.

                                                                                What's a parade without a stilt walker?

Or "has been" local TV personalities. This is Big and Little John. Can you guess which is which?

Look closely. Those aren't kids driving those cars!


Secondhand Sunday

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Sundays are my Secondhand day. I'm basically too lazy to think of anything new to say so I re-post a "vintage" entry.

If you aren't in the mood for repeats, please feel free to change the channel.

I have a love/hate thing going with the internet.

Let me give you an example.

The year was 1975. I was 9 years old and a card carrying member of the Bay City Rollers Fan Club. Oh, yes I was...

I was on the newsletter mailing list.

I knew when all the guys birthdays were.

AND I wore my tartan scarf re-ligiously.

I remember running home from school to watch the Rollers on The Mike Douglas Show. Mike asked them how they chose their name and they said that they stuck a pin in a map of the United States and named it after that city.

Bay City, Michigan

Only Derek pronounced it Bay City, MiCHigan instead of Mishigan. My mother laughed but I yelled at her and told her that they were from Scotland so there was no way they could know the right way to say it. I think she slapped me.

But the stinging went away when I heard them sing:

For some reason, this song has been going through my head all week. I was looking for it on YouTube when I came across VH1's Behind the Music about the Bay City Rollers and decided to watch it.

Big mistake.

I want to remember them as fresh faced young boys who wore ridiculous outfits and couldn't move on stage to save their lives.

I want to remember dancing around my bedroom while kissing Erik Faulkner's face on the cover of Tiger Beat.

Isn't he dreammmmyyy?

I want to remember thinking that the drummer looked like a little kid banging on pots and pans.

I do NOT want to know about all the fighting over money.

I do NOT want to know that their manager when to prison for underaged sexual offenses with boys.

I do NOT want to know that the drummer, Derek, was charged with child pornography.

Alcohol and drug problems? Make it stop!!

I just want to go back to when my teenage heart (okay my 9 year old heart) pined over her future love. Is that too much to ask?

Chrissy's real truth about life that no one will tell you.

"Don't ever forget for a second that you are loved.

Not by me, though. I can't stand you."

Monday Morning Vinny

Monday, May 7, 2012

Has anyone seen Vinny? I last saw him in the bathroom...

My progress is overwhelming

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

I've been doing the daily training on Lumosity, the cognitive training website that I told you about a few weeks ago. I've seen my scores go from mediocre to not so mediocre. I started with an overall score of 417 and now it's 725. I thought that was pretty good until I talked to a friend of mine who signed up about the same time and his overall score is over 1100. I guess we can't all be Rain Man.

They keep measures of your BPI or Brain Profile Index. This number is based on the combined results of your games in each brain area - memory, attention, speed, flexibility and problem solving.

The results have been interesting. Let's just say, I can't problem solve my way out of a box but oddly enough, my highest scores are in speed, attention and memory. Ha! Memory. Obviously that doesn't apply to leaving my keys in the front door overnight. Maybe that does fall into the problem solving category because it sure will be a problem when someone walks in and kills me.

I keep doing extra problem solving games to hone my skills but I'm too stupid to understand how some of the games are even played.

It's fun to see how you compare with others in your age group. I'm in the 79th percentile for attention so if you think you're going to get away with wearing two different socks to work, I will catch you. On the flip side,  I'm in the 30th percentile for problem solving. I had no idea I was so illogical.

Like I said before, do I think these games will really make me smarter and carry over into my everyday life? I don't know for certain. But I do know that the competitor in me wants to beat Rain Man.

I do....I do.....definitely....definitely....I definitely want to win.
