I HAVE A HAMMER ....

Here are my exercise sheets and my tools. Excuse the pink towel ... it could have been worse. When I went to see Mr. Twister today he said "Time to start with some weights." He handed me a 1 lb. dumb bell. If you have ever googled "dumb bells" you see that the standard color for the teeny weeny wimpy 1 lb. dumb bell is bright pink! A GIRLY weight! There I was in this room with 3 other guys trying to lift this pink tiny dumb bell. Oh, the shame. Anyway I said "I don't have any dumb bells but I have a hammer" and he said "that is about 1 lb." - so that is my weight!

You are also supposed to use a cane in some of those exercises and I don't have one but I do have an umbrella. Actually everybody in the Pacific North West has an umbrella but we never use them because the rain is too light and unpredictable and it's a pain carrying one around but rarely using it. So that's my other tool.

He did not twist me harder ... he made me do a LOT more harder movements and wave that stupid pink dumb bell around! I hurt. Here is Zoey from the front and still showing her carefully arranged strands. I have no idea why her legs are so short and her top-knot so bright white. She kind of looks like a bad stuffed animal. But she's not ... she's my Zoey, Zoey!

A hammer is a much more manly practice weight, so that was a good idea. Come to think of it, I'm not particularly fond of pink exercise gear and equipment, myself. It annoys me that there's still a perception out there that everyone with two X chromosomes must naturally want to wear and be surrounded by pink.

I love that pic of Zoey. She does look a little like a toy, but that's what makes her so adorable!

The hammer is definitely a good idea.

Adorable photo of Zoey, she is so cute.

Zooey looks like this cartoon character from the '50s (?) Max, a funny furry animal. I think I have a book or him.....Good luck with your hammer, I think you'll make better progress than with a girly weight.

I have to tell you - i got a little nervous when I saw the hammer (not enough sleep)

Zoey has charm and personality

I think I have a cane - if you want it (one of the kids had it for a halloween costume) if you send me your adress at samnwillow@gmail.com I can overniight it to you. i think it would be sturdier than the umbrella - let me confirm forst that it is still in the house

Hef looks around at his pink walls. "THEY DON'T LIKE PINK?!!" If I have paint because of this I'm not going to be happy!

P.S return of the word verification being a real word, mine is candier

That is SUCH a wonder-bun you've got there!

Gee, RG, I didn't know my dumb little blog meant so much to you - who's making excuses anyway? ;) I'll let you in on a little secret... don't tell, but I really dislike UCONN. Bad school!

*snigger!*

PT's so much fun, ain't it?

If I had a hammmmmmer.....I'd hammer in the mooooorning....

I think Zoey looks like a good stuffed animal, not a bad one. Elvis thinks she's pretty nifty and says he'd like to snuggle with her and share hairdo ideas. And also warn her about people wanting to trim her face.
