I'm leaving on a jet plane...

I'm really not leaving on a jet plane. But after 10:30am, I am officially on vacation! YIPPEEEE.....
Today, I made the executive decision to extended my 3 day weekend to a 4 1/2 day weekend. I'm happy my boss agreed to this decision. Otherwise, today's post could have been a downer.

I would like to wish everyone a happy Memorial Weekend. If you are going somewhere, please be safe and have fun. If you are staying home, like me, pretend you are on the beach. This is me, pretending to be on the beach......

Don't worry I didn't forget about Hot Guy a Day in the Month of May. Today, I thought I would choose a guy from my childhood. I'm 100% sure every girl had a crush on this guy. Well, unless you were an AC girl. I was a Zack Morris girl.

All the Single Ladies Put Your Hands Up

Today's hottie is not in male form. It's in toaster form. You read that right, toaster form.

Blogger World, about five years ago I discovered the kitchen brand Viking. Do you know them? No? Really, get out more guys! Viking is a company that sells kitchen products. When I worked at the Kitchen Store, we sold a few of Viking's products. They are a step up from KitchenAid.

One day Sister #1 and I were working at the Kitchen Store and noticed our newest Viking Product to be sold. It was a Viking Toaster. For us, it was love at first sight. We both fell in love with the toaster.

Since Sister #1 and I do have brain cells, we decided the only way we would receive the beautiful $300 toaster is with marriage. We both agreed that we would put the gorgeous toaster on our wedding registry. But then it hit us, we can't both register for a $300 toaster. People will think we are mad. Therefore a deal was made. Whomever got hitched first, had the honor of registering for the Viking Toaster.

Folks, let me bring up a couple points, three to be exact.

I'm not getting any younger.

I'm striking out with all my pimp out dates.

I'm not going to sign up for eHarmony.

For those reasons, I declare the Viking Toaster mine. Sorry, Sister #1. I'm registering for this toaster on my 30th birthday. It's part of Brilliant Plan #63.

The End!

No discussion.

No debate.

I win. I'm the oldest.

I'm tired again.

This morning I bought a Nonfat Chai instead of a Steamer. I needed the strong stuff. We'll see if it works. Yesterday, I didn't fully wake up until noon. Don't tell my coworkers.

I really don't have much to post. My life hasn't changed in the past 24 hours. My air condition still doesn't work. I'm ok with this. I just keep thinking how cheap my bill will be next month. I'm real excited about that thought!

I'm still working out like a mad woman. Last night I had my last personal training session. I believe we ended on a good note. I was hurting when I left the gym. Other than that, nothing new in my life.

I will close today's post with our Tuesday Hottie. Blogger World, meet Joshua Jackson. I did enjoy JJ on Dawson's Creek. I stopped watching the show after a few years, but Pacey was always my favorite character. I think if Joshua and I knew each other in real life, we'd be friends. I also think that about Brad Paisley.

Weekend Update

Monday morning. Blah! I'm so tired. I'm waiting for my Starbucks to kick in and wake me up. No luck so far. Of course, I'm drinking a steamer which has zero caffeine.

This weekend was great! I thought since I had an exciting weekend I would post a Weekend Update. Let's dive in on OK Chick's exciting weekend...

Friday night I participated in Back in the Swing. This is a nonprofit organization started by a fellow Jazzerciser, who is also a breast cancer survivor. My favorite aerobics people, Jazzercise, had a special fundraiser aerobics class. It was very fun. Not only did a burn more calories, which is pretty critical with this weight loss competition, I also supported a fellow Jazzerciser who is a cancer survivor.

I kicked off the morning with a 5K. This was my first summer race. I usually run 3-4 races a summer, and this race always kicks off the summer. I did pretty well in the race. I didn't win or anything, but I finished. The wind was crazy, but you know, that's normal around here.
Saturday afternoon I decided to go to aerobics. Now, don't think I'm crazy. Well, crazier than normal. This weekend my air condition was not working, and it was HOT Saturday. I thought instead of sitting in my hot house, I would just go to aerobics. They at least have A/C. I mean, sure I was going to get even hotter, but at least I would burn about 400 calories getting hot.
Saturday evening I attended my first BBQ. I love BBQs! Really, there's nothing better than eating a hamburger outside. I dined on all the normal BBQ fixin's. My cool coworker, even made cake balls for dessert. They were heaven.

Church. Blogger World, the time has come for my 5th grade kiddos to move up to youth group. Next week is my last week with these kids. I'm about 80% sure I'll get teary eyed next Sunday. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself this summer. I've been helping in the kids area for 3 years. These kids have been my kids for 3 years!

Well, there you have it. An exciting weekend for OK Chick. Next weekend should be good as well. I have relatives from Land of the Hogs visiting. I'm hoping the A/C is fixed by then.

Today's hottie is Chris O'Donnell. I'm sure everyone would agree that he's a cutie?

Hey Soul Sister

You know, I kind of like the song Hey Soul Sister. It's just a catchy happy song. Please tell you agree?

Well folks, last night was a terrible Gary England evening. It didn't even rain. Home of the Cowboys (Stillwater) did have some excitement up their way. But since, I live 40+ miles from Stillwater I saw zero excitement. The highlight of the evening was when Gary yelled at the camera guy to pay attention. It made me laugh.

In other news, the answer to Three Truths and a Lie was number 2 and 3. It wasn't meant to be a trick. Don't get mad at me. I had planned to attend aerobics, make the pancakes, and not run 5 miles. But I didn't make it to aerobics, due to work, and I did not have eggs to make the pancakes, so I had to run 5 miles. In my opinion, the whole evening was just a blow. Actually, that was the night Sister #1 brought me hummus from Denver, that was exciting.

In other other news, Pistol Pete is still sending me Facebook messages. I guess that's good? We don't email everyday, but it's pretty consistent. I'm not for sure about this guy. I don't understand why he hasn't asked me out? I'm getting tired of sending messages back and forth. His emails are long and full of questions so I don't think he's just being nice. But again, why hasn't he asked me out? Why are we still emailing? I don't get it. I'm confused. I'm sending an SOS out.

Blogger World, I must end this post. I have to consume lunch. Today's hottie is a celebrity chef, since we were talking about food. Fine, I was talking about food.

Curtis, if you are reading this post, please come fix me dinner. And, I wouldn't be sad if you didn't wear that Cowboy tie looking thing. It does look goofy. Thanks!

Between the hours of 4-10

Are the hours that a tornado will come knocking on my door.

The weather folks have been harping about this ALL day. My office is basically planning to shut the doors at 3:30. Ok, not really. I am hoping if I say the last statement enough it will catch on around the office, and they really will close early. No luck so far.

I'm secretly jumping for joy about all this weather excitement. It's going to be a good Gary England night. You know it's going to be good when I've already received The Gary England Drinking Game email. Oh yes, I'm for real. Here are the rules/breakdown for The Gary England Drinking Game. Sidenote: I have never played this game. I do not recommend the game, but I think it's freaking hilarious.

Gary England Drinking Game
By Canada and Moose
1. Everyone selects a storm chaser other than Val Caster. Every time Gary talks to your storm chaser, you take one drink. Take two drinks every time we see footage from your storm chaser. Take four drinks if your storm chaser says "tornado on the ground."

2. Everyone selects a county other than Pottawatomie County. Every time Gary mentions your county, you take one drink. Take two drinks every time we see footage from your county. Take four drinks if a tornado touches down in your county.

One drink
1. Take one drink every time Gary says the following:
"Hook echo" | "Updraft" | "Metro" | "Doppler radar" | "Wall cloud" | "Ranger 9" | "Underground" | "Mobile home"
2. When Gary gives a list of counties, take one drink for every county in the list.
3. Take one drink every time Gary interrupts a program. Take one drink if Gary says "You're not missing any of [program name]." Take one drink when Gary says "We'll keep you advised."

Two drinks
1. Take two drinks every time Gary says the following:
"Baseball-sized hail" | "Waterloo Road" | "Pottawatomie County" | "Deer Creek High School"
2. Take two drinks every time Gary mentions the following towns:
Altus | Burns Flat | Dill City | Gotebo | Hydro | Lookeba | Meeker | Mulhall | Oktaha | Olustee | Shattuck | Slaughterville | Tryon | Vici | Waukomis | Wayne (or Payne) | Weleetka | Wetumkah
3. Take two drinks every time Gary talks to Val Caster.

Three drinks
1. Take three drinks if we see footage from Val Caster.
2. Take three drinks if we see footage from Pottawatomie County.
3. Take three drinks if Gary mentions the following:
"Immediate tornado precautions" | "National Weather Service" | "Mesocyclone" | "Portable Radio" | "Take shelter" | "Tornado warning in effect until …"

Four drinks
1. Take four drinks if Ranger 9 must land to refuel.
2. Take four drinks if Gary issues his own tornado warning, not recognized by the NWS or says the following:
"Will someone please answer that phone?" | "Do you see power flashes?"
3. Take four drinks if a shirt-less tornado victim is interviewed.
Finish your drink
1. Finish your drink if someone uses the word tornado as a verb or if Gary mentions the nearest cross streets to you.
2. If Gary says "We've lost Val," pour a little out for your homies and finish your drink.

As I've said before, we okies take our tornadoes serious! Also, today's hottie is repeat hottie Gary England. Tonight he will keep me advised, which will keep me alive.

Three Truths and a Lie

Blogger World, it's time to play the game Three Truths and a Lie.

I play this game from time to time.

If you are new to This is my world, let me explain the game. I give you four statements, three are facts and one is a lie. Your mission is to find the lie. Good luck!

1. Tonight I'm going to mow my yard.
2. Tonight I'm going to aerobics.

3. Tonight I'm mixing a great pancake recipe, so I can pancakes in the morning.

4. Tonight I'm going to run 5 miles.

As always, the winner will receive an imaginary high-five from me. Folks, do you realize how awesome it is that I give away imaginary prizes? You don't? You should.

Since we are still in the month of May, today's cutie goes to my Monday night crush. I've had a crush on this guy for two TV seasons. Blogger World, meet Richard Castle......

Weight Loss Competition Update

Folks, I have exciting news. Please, pay attention! This morning I had my second weigh-in for the crazy weight loss contest I've entered.

Guess what? I've lost a total of 5lbs. I'm still hanging in there.

I have four weeks left of the competition, and you better believe I'm done eating solid foods. I'm going to try the Jennifer Aniston baby food diet.

Kidding. I think. I'm pretty sure I'm kidding on that last point.

Actually, I'm going to work-out like a mad woman. I mean, more than I already do, which is pretty close to working out like a mad woman, but not quite there yet.

Today's hottie is the beach, because I want to remind myself why I'm busting my butt. Also, the beach is hot.

By the way, I will not be visiting this beach. I thought the picture was pretty. This beach is in Africa. I'm hoping for Florida, but Africa would be cool.

Brilliant Idea #92

I'm being pimped out again.

My cube neighbor is pimping me out to one of his softball friends. We will call this guy Pistol Pete, because he is a big OSU fan.

Pistol Pete seems like a nice guy, and fun to be around. Of course, we've only made facebook contact.

I've come to terms that facebook is the new way of dating. It sucks. I don't like facebook'ing.

I'd rather meet someone face-to-face. I don't like involving the computer. I don't need to involve a computer. I'm more charming in person.

Wednesday morning I was sending Pistol Pete a rather lengthy message. I was half way finished with my message when I realized something. I realized a few months ago, I'd sent the exact message to RR.

The realization annoyed me, so I did something brilliant. I saved the message in a word document with the title: About Me. Now, when I'm being pimped out, I have a go-to message. I mean, all potential dating facebook messages start out the same. What do you do? Do you like sports? What TV shows do you watch? Blah, blah!

I told you my idea was brilliant. It's Brilliant Idea #92.

You know, I'm a pretty brilliant person. I should try to squeeze this charactertist in my About Me document.

Blogger World, I have no exciting information about Pistol Pete. I'm sure we'll go on a date in June, because that's my life. Zero flexibility. Yes, I realize this might be ONE reason why I'm still single. No need to leave a comment. My coworkers inform me of this daily.

However, since it's Hot Guy a Day in the Month of May, I feel obligated to leave Pistol Pete as today's hottie.

Oh, you thought I was going to give you a picture of the man behind the nickname? Folks, that's wrong on every level. You know I cannot post pictures of people unless they are on People of Walmart.

I guess the Lord made me hard to handle

I just consumed the worst breakfast. I'm annoyed because I want my calories back. Can you have a calorie redo when it comes to eating food you don't like?

Anyway, today's post isn't about my awful SmartOnes Stuffed Breakfast Sandwich that you should never buy. Even if you have coupons. No, today's post is about Sister #2.

Do you know Sister #2? No. Oh, well you should get to know her. I believe she is quite a delight.

This past weekend I was in Hometown, USA for Mother's Day. Sister #2 was home as well. She just finished her first year of college, and is spending the summer at home.

Saturday night my mom sent Sister #2 and I to Wally World. We were on a mission for a tomato, cucumber, and avocado. It was a big mission.

As we were driving home from Wally World, a Dierks Bentley song came on the radio. Do you know Dierks Bentley? No. Really? You know, you guys should really get out more. Dierks Bentley, is a cutie that sings good quality country songs. My favorite song of his is... What Was I Thinkin.

Becky was a beauty from South Alabama

Her Daddy had a hard lock and nine pound hammer

Think He even did a little time in the slammer

What was I thinking?

Ring a bell? No? Ok, fine moving on.

As the song was playing Sister #2 informed me that when she was younger, she always thought I would marry Dierks. I laughed. She thought since he was single, cute, and a good singer that we would make a good couple.

Isn't that the nicest thing ever?

I mean, sure, she was probably 7 years old when she had this dream, but even at that young age she could tell I was destined for greatness! Oh bless her little heart. What a disappointment I've become. Kidding.

Today's hot guy is Sister #2's top pick for my future husband. I'm sorry I could not live up to Sister #2's expectations, in the husband department. I'm sure Dierks and I would have been really happy together. However, if I'd married a hot country singer, I might not have this wonderful blog, and I know that breaks all of your hearts.

Gary England

Yesterday I planned to post a Weekend Update. I had a great weekend. I went to Hometown, USA for Mother's Day, and spent a good amount of the weekend around old friends. You know the friends that make you happy to be alive? Yes, those people. However, I did not get around to writing the post, because yesterday the bottom fell out of the sky.

Folks, it's tornado season around here, which makes me jump for joy. There's just something about tornado season for anyone from around these parts of the woods. It's exciting, yet scary.

Yesterday, I was sitting in a meeting when my office's receptionist came over the intercom announcing that the sh*t has hit the fan, and we all need to hit the floor immediately. Ok, so maybe I'm being a bit dramatic. I believe she simply said to be aware of the weather.

After the announcement my meeting dismissed and I went back to my office. As I was walking down the hallway I found my entire department had jumped ship due to the storm. Now, this annoyed me because my coworkers left me to fight the storm ALONE. I mean come on, don't they know you are not suppose to leave a solider behind. Sure, I'm not a solider, but we're family around here!!!! Well, I guess we are not family around here! But one brave coworker was still working, and informed me that I had 10 minutes to get home before the storm hit my office. I flew out of my office like Starbucks was having a sale on nonfat Chai.

Apparently, everyone heard about the Starbucks sale because all of OKC was out on the roads trying to get home, which caused me not to beat the storm. The highlight of the afternoon was when the hail starting hitting my car, and the tornado sirens went off for about 10 minutes. I just turned up the radio. What? It was a good song, and I've heard the tornado sirens before.

Today's hot guy is my #1 weather guy! Gary England, job well done yesterday. You kept me advised, which kept me alive! I realize people from outside the Oklahoma bubble do not understand my love for this man, but just go with me. If you ever come visit me during tornado season, you'll develop a deep love for him too.

Mr. CSI Guy

Blogger World, I would like to send my apologizes for not updating yesterday. Sorry.

However, today is Friday, which is a day we all love. Not only do I love Fridays, I also love geeky guys. Today's, Hot Guy a Day in the Month of May goes to my all time favorite geeky guy. He is the reason I've watched CSI Las Vegas all these years. I'm a loyal fan.

Mr. CSI Guy, sorry don't know your real name, thanks for being so darn cute! I love watching you solve crimes and putting away the bad folks of Las Vegas. I feel that if we knew each other in real life, we might like each other. But we don't know each other. Heck, I don't even know your name, but I make sure to tune in every TH. Well, I watch you and my Housewives, but I only watch them because I'm fascinated with the way they act. I watch your show because you're so cute!

National Teachers Day

Yesterday, was National Teachers Day. I didn't realize May 4th was the day we honor our teachers. I think it's good we have a day to honor our teachers. They are important to us, to me.

My mom is a teacher. She's a kindergarten teacher. Her day is spent teaching 5 year old kids how to read, tie their shoes, count money, share, and sing silly songs about letter people. I used to think she had a great gig. I mean, she colored for crying out loud. However, the older/wiser I became the more I realized you couldn't pay me enough to be a teacher. Oh heck no!

On a rare occasion that I visit my mom's class, it makes me greatly appreciate what she does for a living. She's important. She's molding the minds of young ones. She is teaching a possible future president how to read! I don't do anything that important at my job, and I never will.

I would like to thank all the teachers, including my mom, that helped me get through elementary, middle, and high school. It was sometimes a long/painful road, but look at me now! I have a job and an MBA. I know some of you doubted me, but never underestimate the power of Riddlin and good tutors.

Today's Hot Guy is Tom Selleck. My mom has never come out and said she thinks he's hot, she's never said that about ANY guy, but I think she really likes Tom Selleck.

Hot Guy a Day in the Month of May

I enjoy reading The Lost Ogle. It's a wacky blog that pokes fun of everything wonderful about Oklahoma. It's a great blog.

Today, while catching up on old post I discovered The Lost Ogle dedicates the month of May to hot girls. They title the post Hot Girl a Day in the Month of May. Catchy, huh?

Well Lost Ogle Boys, I'm going to copy your idea. Fellow readers, welcome to Hot Guy a Day in the Month of May.

Our first Hot Guy is David Beckham.

I know, I think he's hot too! He has that California surfer look, but then has the great British accent.

My grandma would be so proud

Blogger World, right now I am so proud of myself. I just returned from the grocery store with these random items....

How much do you think I spent on these random items:
A) 2.59
B) 3.02
C) 1.19

Yes, I really want you to guess. I'll wait while you decide on your answer........ I'm still waiting....

If you picked C then you are correct! I was so pumped when I walked out of the grocery that I called my mom to tell her about my bargains. She was jealous!

Nevermind, that it's 8:30 on a Sunday night and I'm buying random groceries, that is totally beside the point, totally!
