I just want to say thank you for all your lovely comments on whether I should keep blogging or not. I'm glad you all like my blog for the writing because that's the part I enjoy. I will keep on keeping on.
So my Man and I were talking about it the other night and it’s about time for a Jaws remake. I mean REALLY we’ve come so far with underwater cameras, 3D and realistic monsters. How has this not happened yet?! Open water doesn’t count. If I took my video camera out into the middle of ocean, hopped in and waited around I could have made that movie too. James Cameron is too busy creating movies about imaginary races. There are no blue people. Someone needs to remind him what is really important. Sharks. I’ve seen every shark movie ever made, probably more than once, including everything Shark Week has to offer. All I want for Christmas is Jaws 7.
However, a true testament of the times would be a reality TV shark show. Whoever avoids being eaten wins.
The Real Housewives of the O(h) C(rap) there's a Shark
Annnnd Wipeout and be Eaten
Now I have somehow managed to find my other half in life (my Man) but also my other half when it comes to Shark fascination. Together we make one whole nerdy shark loving freak. He however, is more scared of them than I am. We were in Dominican a few years back and it was actually his first time in the ocean. After much convincing, we finally ventured in far enough that we could barely touch the bottom. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to let him know that sharks are attracted to shiny silver jewelry and menstruating women. And then I smiled.
"Shark Bait! Shark Bait! Get AWAY from ME!!" he screamed as he swam for the shore.
In Vegas we specifically PAID (it costs money) a visit to Mandalay Bay to look at the sharks and take a ridiculous number of pictures. Everyone of which looked like this...
And in Mexico I dragged Mel to a "Swim with the Sharks" and forced her to watch. Unfortunately, these nurse Sharks were the only available kind to swim with. My goal in life is to swim with a "scarier" Shark than this, but this was a start. If nothing else these are some humorous pictures. Like embarrass your Man slide show wedding pictures.
I repaid her later in shots..
I also must admit that I know a lot of information about these hugass fish. See, not only do I work for my parents (scale company) now but I also spent countless summers "working" for them when I was younger. When I was younger my definition of work was defined by typing s-h-a-r-k-s into google's search engine and clicking on every link that came up. What do you know about scales? Nothing. What do you know about Sharks? Everything.
Sharks aside, I did Ride last night. I tell you this because I'm starting to get frustrated with exercise. I mean I haven't done ride in a while but why do I want to do something that doesn't result in immediate change? I did it last night, worked REALLY hard and woke up this morning looking the exact same. Bullsh**.
