How much food do they eat during one 30 minute tv show ???

Saturday, July 19, 2014

I just watched a 30 minute tv show , There were 12 times people ate during the half hour ! No wonder we munch out while watching tv ! To give credit there was one part of the show that showed people jogging ! lol.

    when I was in France watching tv with my mom I pointed out to her that American television has all these fast food commercials starting before dinner straight through till ten or so at night non stop- she said couldn't believe it and no wonder Americans eat so much since there's that constant reminder.... I noted French tv commercialism did NOT follow the same pattern.

Remember when booze commercials were forced to change advertising schedule? If you were a teen in the seventies you could count on be told how great drinking was about every half hour-that ended Tobacco was sold the same way. To tell you the truth I'm not very happy with prescription drugs being pushed down tv viewers throats.

    I find this very annoying and the health experts are always telling us about our obesity.....they need to ban some of the food commercials as they are a hazzard to our health. emoticon

    I hate broadcast TV because of all the eating, PLUS the fast food commercials. I try to watch DVD or Netflix because who needs encouragement to overeat???

Help ! I keep channeling Rodney Dangerfield and I can't stop !

Friday, July 18, 2014

I have been watching a show on the Hallmark Channel called Ceder Cove not really my type of show I normally watch but somehow I am hooked ! As I am watching I realized that I don't know how to act mature ! like EVER !
Many people have told me I am the funniest person they know and I should be a professional comedian but I am on like 24/7 ! Behavior that would seem funny at 20 doesnt seem so funny now at my age ! lol.
I am even beginning to LOOK like Rodney ! I need some Respect PEOPLE !!!
I was married very young and was a VERY INNOCENT Girl who's parents were over protective and also very funny people themselves , Being funny was a talent and a strength in my family . I was then married for years to a very unfunny controlling guy who didnt really appreciate my humor ! I work also with young people and I am sorry to say I am tired of them , God bless their hearts , they are not to blame ! It has been said that comedians are people that need to work out a lot of issues ! I bet not even Rodney was Rodney all the time ! Its exhausting ! Anyways I am serious about reaching my goals and no I dont want to ever lose my FUNNY ! but I can not use it as a shield for my emotions or worries any more either !

I am seeing some resemblance here !

Also agree with Susan, that clowns are some of the most depressed people. Since you are into Bollywood stuff.... there is a very old movies, which stars a yesteryears all time favourite hero Raj Kapoor...the name of the movie is 'Mera Naam Joker' that is My Name is Joker.

    Love Rodney! Clowns are sometimes the most depressed people. They spend their lives "on" to make others happy, yet no one sees the pain within.

I was surprised you were not a member of one of the SP Sarcasm or Humor teams LOL!

    A little humor to get us through each day is a good thing, but like you said, sometimes it is good to not have to be "on" 24/7. You will find the right balance for you...have a great weekend!

Pamper Mission time again !

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

I am one of the admins of THE BUDDY SYSTEM GROUP and each month we post little missions for us to accomplish , This month we repeated a mission called THE PAMPER MISSION . What that basically is , is doing something for yourself each day to make you feel better and like the Queen or King that you are ! This time around I want to make sure that everyone does it everyday ! Its so important to realize what July represents . 6 more months until the end of the year ! If we have been slogging around for the past 6 months lets do a reality check for the last 6 !
I dont mean to do anything drastic ! In fact I mean the opposite ! Not Drastic but Realistic ,
Now I know that summer is full of food and parties and holidays and heat but guess what ? Winter is full of food and parties and holidays and cold !
What I would like to see is everyone think of a goal weight they would love to be * realistically * by the end of the year and then cut that baby in half !!!!
Thats right cut it in half ! I know every year I make a goal to lose by the end of the year and dont even make half of it ! lol Stop being a perfectionist !
Second thing I would like everyone to do is love yourself NOW , if you are feeling unattractive and over weight look around you , There are plenty of beautiful women and really hot men who have extra pounds ! Be Beautiful NOW !
I remember when I was a teen I would sit for hours doing my hair and looking at pictures of models in magazines , I cant do that now ! but I realized that I have been putting myself on the back burner for a long time ! The past hurts and disappointments I have had in my life have really took away that feeling I had when I was a teen of really enjoying making myself look good.
The Pamper missions will help you with that and its the very first step we need to making this last 6 months a success .
Do your pamper missions each day for 15 mins , 5 mins or even 3 . You are worth it and your going to find what a little time each day spent for you will do for yours self esteem !

Bohemian Vs Hippie !

Monday, June 30, 2014

A girl came in to apply for a job the other day , who described her self as a *Flower Child*.During the interview , We talked about job duties and also I like to get the feel of the person to see how well they will fit in , Working in a hotel is not for everyone ! You have to have the right kind of attitude ! You have to have pride in your job even if others view it as menial ! Because baby if you don't do your job correct all of a sudden it becomes a HUGE DEAL !
So I thought you might want to hear how this interview went
Me; Because this is a smaller hotel , we don't really have one job we have several . Each day you might be asked to do something different , from weeding the gardens to cleaning to wait staff , office even cooking sometimes , of course you dont have to be an expert at all things but you should give it your best shot .We are very patient about teaching people new skills.

Flower child : I have to do what makes me happy , I care about the universe not rich people on vacation.I want to do IMPORTANT THINGS with my life.

Me: In the universe small things are the most important , Have you heard of the butterfly effect ? Besides our guests come from all backgrounds , its not important if someone is * rich or not * They all pay the same rate to stay here. In fact if I guess that someone might have saved all year to come here I make sure I give them special attention.

Flower Child : Well I do not like cleaning or wait staffing I don't know how to work in an office and I also dont like to feel confined I am a free spirit. I need space. I need to be creative .

Me: Well.. You just said you didnt like to do just about everything this job requires you to do .. So what is it that you feel you WANT TO DO ?

Flower Child: I want to become a bee keeper.

Me: At this moment the hotel does not have bee hives.... but it would be wonderful if at sometime in the future we could do that so the guests could have freshly made honey on their waffles , We will be sure keep you in mind if we ever decide to do that .

Moral of the story : Although its great to enjoy the * universe * You cant walk around with your head in the clouds all the time , Even the biggest hippy has to put his or her bell bottoms on one leg at a time. Karma is whatever you put out in the the universe , If you put out joy no matter what you doing , it effects other people in ways you might not even know. In fact they might not even realize it , Think about when you last called lets say an IT person and they were really kind and helpful , You probably said " Thank God ! " or went to dinner and the Server served you fast and efficiently ! You might not even have noticed and that's great because you should be enjoying your meal ! Our jobs do not define us as human beings , no matter how * big or small" My dad always said * work when its time to work and enjoy when its time to enjoy ! " No matter if your at work or at play you can always effect the UNIVERSE with your attitude !

    What a fun blog!
I was a flower child 50 years ago.
Then I discovered I had to provide myself and my child with food, clothing and shelter.
"Customer service" became my contribution to the universe, whether I was waiting tables, mowing lawns or selling plumbing parts. I can honestly and proudly say I have solved a million small problems. Thousands of people have been made a little happier because of our contact.
In return the universe has sent many good things my way, and now I'm the "rich person" on vacation.
What goes around, comes around!

    Great post...back when I was the Director at our company's call center, I was perpetually interviewing people, and it never ceased to amaze me how many people would come in expecting we would cater the position(s) we had open to what they wanted to do instead of what the company needed. I am all for allowing people to pursue their dreams, but you have to have a realistic view on how to make that happen, and to keep in mind that the universe does not revolve around you. I love how you handled it without being ugly or demeaning, just being factual and honest. The world needs more people like you in it...

Have a great week,

PS Love the reference to the Butterfly Effect...
