Weekend Update!

Andd I'm back. I can't believe it's been four days since I blogged. I guess since I'm a celeb now, that's how things are gunna be.

KIDDING, obviously! But in all seriousness, the commercial recording session was really cool. The person I worked with was in Colorado (I assume that's where Shane Company is headquartered) so they connected him via phone. I went to the office of a radio station, and the man I was meeting there brought me into a recording studio- just a tiny room with computers and mics, etc. They had me read it one, then asked me to slow down. Then again- and asked me to have more emphasis and emotion. Only two or three more times and we were done! It was over in like, 15-20 minutes! They were really nice and thankful for my help- to which I said THANK YOU for letting me do this! I am still finding out when it will air but will update all of you!

Something Mr P has been working on (and me, sort of, but we'll get to that) losing weight and eating healthier. He started Tuesday and has already lost 9 pounds! We are not eating out (or at least avoiding it when we can, and on days where we need something quick, making smart choices) and cooking healthy meals. We also really cut portion sizes. I'm a little different because I haven't weighed or measured myself yet, and I'm starting with the Special K challenge during the day to get used to smaller, smarter portions. I feel really motivated and excited about being more healthy and fit, and wanted to give it up to Mr Pug a little since he motivates and inspires me so much.

Saturday we went to see Avatar in IMAX 3D (AWESOME) and then over to some friends' place to watch the Colts game (GO HORSE!) Instead of beer, we drank vodka and club soda with a splash of a sugar-free fruit drink. We also were very smart about our eating during the game... which isn't easy!

The friends, who many call "The Dudes," have a VERY extensive hat and wig collection. At some point we all put on hats and wigs as good luck. We had a Colts horse head, redneck camo hat, inflatable Motorola headset, pizza, hotdog, pot with plants, foam helmet, Luigi, Toad (both from Mario games), a police cap, an Egyptian headdress, and...

Aren't I just the classiest 50-something lesbian you've ever seen?

Note: not putting down lesbians. Just everyone immediately said "You look like a lesbian." Which means if I want to hold onto Mr P I should never cut my hair like this.

I also got a GREAT award this week!
