My Spinning Thoughts

Last week I kicked spinning's butt. This week, spinning kicked my butt. As is, totally kicked it to the curb! Sure, I didn't get more than about 4 hours of sleep that night and Babs had woken up at 6:30. In the morning! But, the fact remains that it kicked my butt. I have been humbled. Again.

And on a completely random, and hopefully non-offensive, tangent I'm going to share something that I found amusing. While walking into a local recreation center for the previously mentioned spin class I saw a vehicle with a decal advertising a business of some sort. And, because I have to read every single one of those things that I see, I was looking at it as I walked past about 100 feet away. Near as I can tell, it's a woman who assists others in "greening" their lifestyles. This isn't the first time I've heard of this, so that's not the humorous part. And it's actually a great idea and service. It's the fact that it was on an SUV. Ya know, the giant, gas guzzling cars. Now, it wasn't the biggest SUV I've ever seen in my life, but still pretty big. I just found it ironic that someone who advertises themselves as an expert in environmental responsibility is sitting in a parking lot in their SUV....with it running. I'm sure there was a bit of a judgemental smile on my face because when this lady looked at me she glared. Which just made me smile a little bit more.

And now you know what a nice person I am and the loving thoughts that go through my head. Being more judgemental isn't exactly one of my new years resolutions since I'm not as cool as Kristina, but I seem to have a pretty good grasp already.

I think that everyone can work on being more judgemental.

And I HATE spinning.

That is too funny about the sticker on the SUV! I would probably would have had the same smile on my face as you had on yours.

What a great way to advertise. :D I bet she totally knows what she's talking about.

That is so awesome! Now I can buy an SUV too. I think I have been holding back because I like to think of myself as green too. Ok, probably not.

Maybe she's thinking painting it green will help. You know, like an advertisment for cool looking SUVs. Enjoy the moment, you don't get to enjoy the irony of a totally clueless person in the middle of a major fauxpas very often. Most people figure it out before they go out in public, and obviously her husband (if she has one) didn't point out the obvious, either. She's probably wondering why everyone has a curious smirk on their face and the phone's not ringing.

I'm surprised no one has pointed this out to her! It's kinda like an add I saw in college for a person offering to proof-read papers...but they miss-spelled a couple words.

I am laughing. I love irony.

I love irony too. I'm also working on being more judgmental- but in a completely righteous way...

I am just in awe that you are still taking these classes. If the good balances out the bad in life, then you definitely deserve to be a bit judgmental from time to time! :)

Don't you love a good hypocrite? Celebrities are the best with their big cars, jets and huge homes while they preach "go green!" She deserved a judgmental glare.
