Craziness and Cat Deeley

Several unrelated yet semi-odd things have happened in the past couple of days. With that intriguing description, I can tell that you are DYING to know what they are so without further ado I give you...random bullet points! Enjoy.

  • "Is Lori there?" - This is what I heard when I answered my office phone. Why is this strange? Oh for about eleventy hundred reasons but the most obvious is that this co-worker clearly looked up the internal number to my desk, dialed it and then asked if I was here. Yes Thomas. I am here. Are you there?
  • "Are you losing weight?" - Someone who I have seen nearly every day asked me yesterday if I am losing weight. I would expect that question after five or ten pounds. But 45? Please tell me after all that sweating and dieting that I look different enough to make that a statement, not a question.
  • "I thought I stopped too suddenly but he was right there." - As I was driving home last night, the light turned yellow. Since I was nearly in the intersection already, I gunned it as did the car in front of me. Until she was about 3 feet into the intersection and the siren sounded. An ambulance had just flipped on their siren in the left turn lane across from us. So she stopped. Three feet in the intersection. She stopped. SUDDENLY. I did the same and missed colliding with her bumper by a matter of centimeters. I threw up my hands and clutched my head in an effort to ensure it was still attached. After a minute, she got out of her car, walked to my window and uttered an apology. Wow. All I can say

Now on to the biggest question of the day. Who the heck is dressing Cat Deeley from "So You Think You Can Dance"? They should re-title the show "So You Think You Can Make A Hot Chick Look Horrid." Are you with me? Anyone? Bueller?

Happy Friday everyone!

I have not watched SYTYCD this week, but I am absolutely sure that I will agree with you when I get around to it. They put her in the weirdest outfits! Her hosting has at least gotten better since her first season.

I totally agree with you about Cat--I thought she looked good last year, but this year ugh!!!--Mom

Oh my word! Even in the few pics you've posted I can tell you've lost weight - you look great, Lori! What's up with those people who haven't seen it?

So, I know I didn't say it before, but CONGRATULATIONS on the addition to your family! What a blessing...I know it was months ago that you got your son...I'm alittle slow...=)

Missing Oregon summers....

Holy cow...some things just leave you uttering...what?!?!? The internal phone call just cracks me up...who says that in an office???

Glad to hear the ole' Highlander has quick response brakes. :-)

And yes, some people are clearly idiots. OF COURSE you can tell you've lost weight...helllo! Did you say, "Yes, and I got a new haircut"? Duh?!?

I've been wondering the very same thing about Cat Deely. A couple of weeks ago she had on this gold dress that had a ruffle that went up towards her was the weirdest she needs anything to give her length! Sheesh. Must have a new stylist!

Oh, Cat Deely, why must you be the most exquisitely beautiful woman and still insist upon wearing those ridiculous 'bubble dresses' that are so 'in' right now...on second thought, why is ANYONE wearing something that makes you look like a human version of the Liberty Bell?

And I Luh-OVE when people say things like, "you did something different with your hair..." "yeah, I cut 12-inches off" "no, that's not it" HELLO!? Why, sir, your powers of observation are UNDERWHELMING
