Triple Tangent Tuesday

Happy Tuesday blends!!  It's that time of the week where you get to learn 3 useless things about me and love every second of the experience ;)

1)  My food cravings lately haven't gotten the memo that it's a jillion degrees outside because for some reason, I want Thanksgiving food.  I caved over the weekend and had this plate no less than three times.

 Mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots, sauteed mushrooms

Don't worry, I sometimes don't even make sense to myself.  I have no idea why I wanted such hot, heavy food in the heat of summer but I did and this hit. the. spot.

2)  My little bro is currently on a trip around the country on a Greyhound bus.  He was just in San Francisco camping with a friend, and is now on his way to East Jesus, Nowhere to be a park ranger or something for a couple of weeks.  I'm super stressed out about this because as you know, we are very close.  And he is going to be out of cell phone range for 3 whole weeks.  He just texted to let me know he made his last transfer and is going to be making it where he is going by 1 am. I responded by asking if he will have access to a gun for the time that he is out of civilization and roaming around with wild animals.  Apparently there is no gun, but there is bear mace.  WTF is bear mace???  You are telling me he is going to fend off some crazy mad 25,000 lb mama bear with some pepper spray?  I'm going to be a wreck for the next three weeks.  The good news is that his next stop after the remote mountain adventure is CARY NC and he will be staying with me for a few days :)  I can't wait!

3)  This morning I went to my first bodypump class in 3 weeks.  It was rough.. I could definitely use a leg massage right about now.  When I sit or lay in a certain position for more than 5 seconds a couple minutes, my legs are getting stuck in that position.  Getting out of bed tomorrow morning should be interesting!

I'm off to bed now, the lil bro is calling me at 1am when he gets to where he needs to be so I can speak to him one more time before he loses cell phone service.  He will need all my bear-escaping advice, plus I need to ask him to find a shower between there and here so that he doesn't stink up my new car when I pick him up :)  Have a great night everyone!
