Name that Celebrity 2nd edition and other stuff



Thank you all for participating in last weeks "name that celebrity."  For those of you living under a rock who didn't know......the celebrity in the pic was none other than Matthew Morrison, Mr. Will Schuster himself.  From Glee?  You know, GLEE, craziest popular show on television, GLEE!  Yeah, that's what I thought.
Anyway, I now have picture number two for you.  This one SHOULD be a bit more recognizable.  I'm saving the "hard" stuff for later.  So:

NAME THIS CELEBRITY


Jer sang in a benefit concert with her.  And don't even think for one second that he didn't become BFF's with her for that day and hang out in her dressing room.  'Cause he did, 'cause that's how he rolls!


In completely unrelated news....this morning....at the gym......(I'm giggling).....HE was there.

What HE am I referring to?  None other than spanky pants sporting, head band wearing, 1980 called and they want their glasses back gym guy.  YOU know, Mr. "floppy".  Duuude, he was in his "usual" getup and as he sauntered past me and prepped for a machine, my eyes were once again assaulted by his hanging "manhood."  I'm sorry, but it just has to be said. The guy has balls at least the size of Texas.  Which is CLEARLY why he wears the spanky pants, right?  Someone needs some validation in their life.  But seriously, it is just so gross and disturbing.  Do you remember he's at LEAST 55?  So, as I'm leaving, my friend colleen calls me over and giggles and said,"did you see our friend?"  I laughed and said yes, indeed, my eyeball cancer was back because of it.  Then she laughed some more and said, "seriously, you have GOT to see him run on the treadmill."  To wich I replied, I'd rather not.  I don't need anymore more of floppy Floyd, if you know what I mean.

While on the topic of the gym.  There is this crazy old lady that fully works out in her like nice velour lounging suit.  You know, the kind you hang around the house in, or possibly run errands in, NOT work out in.  But that's not hte crazy.  Her hair is done to it's fullest capacity and she wears her sunglasses the entire time.  It's awesome.  Then, there is this other lady who I really DO think is crazy.  She will seriously march, or walk with purpose all around the gym, with a purse over her shoulder, AT.ALL.TIMES.  And super awesome 1980's headphones.  The kind that still dial in am/fm radio.  I like to watch her, 'cause she'll march toward a machine, get on it for .5 seconds, do a rep or two and then march a lap around the gym, looking deeply at the floor or straight ahead, and then find another machine.  I can't imagine what she's getting out of it.  And finally, there is sweet little lady that has quite possibly the ugliest workout clothes known to man  Hey, I'm not here to judge, I mean I wear giant oversized t-shirts (cause aint nobody need to see this girls fat rolls all crunched up around her) and track pants that are too short.  BUT, this lady, she wears the most god awful floral print cottony spandex like biker sorts (who the hell ever thought it was ok to MAKE such things in the first place? And worse yet, who bought them?  Oh yeah,  THIS lady), and then a completely unrelated, unmatching turquoisy/green swirly shirt.  It's an assault on all senses, and 2 days in a row, she was wearing it.  Hmmmm.

Lesson to be learned here....the gym is AWESOME!  Also, it's awesome because a group of girls who were all friends of mine in higschool have all just recently joined.  We live like 1 or 2 miles away frm eachother and I literally NEVER see them.  One of the girls I had not seen SINCE highschool.  So, that's always fun, saying hola to the chicks in all my sweaty glory.

P.S. my workout totally sucked today.  I blame sir flops alot for seering my eyes.  'Cause I certainly cant blame my lazy legs right?  No, sure can't.



Workshop is blocked.  We move to the theatre tomorrow.  I shall not lie to you.  I HATE the first day in the theatre.  I design all the lights for the show.  So, it's VERY stressful sitting at the table, calling out lighting cues, while the kid upstairs tries to set them in the computer, and the kids on stage try to perform in dark or changing lights, and I have to try and "direct" my numbers from the back of the theatre, WHILE setting lights,  AND people get on edge and yelling happens.  OY VAY!  Least favorite day ever!  On the upside....once they're done, they're done, and next session is a breezeola for me on theatre day.  Looking forward to that.

Ate Rubios tonight...not my fave.  That's all I'm saying.

And finally....

Overheard this morning from Maggie (while on the "phone" with Brooklyn):

"Ummm hi Brooklyn, Brooklyn, yes, I know.  But I have to read a book, and go to school and go to work, and that's all what I have to do today.  Ok?"  I don't know, it just cracked me up.

And my sweet Max, talking more and more and more.  Tonight, after dinner I turned and said, "ok kids."  And Max immediately got excited and started screeching "Take a baff, TAKE A BAFF, TAKE A BAFF."  As he clawed his shirt off his body.   That kid lurves him some bathtime.  And he KNEW that it was time.  Too bad he'd missed the memo that Mommy wasn't planning on doing baths.  Ah well, who can deny a kid that cute?

Celebrity encounters and baby baths,

Allyson

Kellie said...

The gym story is hilarious!!! Old men and their balls...hahahaha! I must say, I am disappointed Rubios isn't your fave- that's goooood Baja food right there! *drooling* Oh, well, to each her own :)

stopping by from sits and reading your entry makes me need to work out more. kids always says the darnest things

the shoafs said...

i don't know what gym you go to, but even here in geriatric ole florida, we don't get folks like that up in there. i wish we did....would make me feel better about myself and provide some awesome entertainment that would help take my mind off of the searing pain after the first 1.5 minutes on the elliptical. of course....i would have to GO to the gym first. which i haven't done in about 2 months.

and i can't remember celeb girls' name....but wait...i think i remember now. (i know, typing out my thoughts as they come). is it jordan sparks?

anyhoodles....thank you for my morning giggle. i now have to go and drive a spoon into my brain to get the floppy image out of my head.

side note: my friend's husband does brick laying work and he used to have an old (like 70-something)fella who worked for him whose nickname was "floppy cods". they called him "flop" for short. just thought i'd through that mental picture out at you since i'm going to need therapy after reading your post!

Rocketgirl said...

I can't place the celeb - but I beg of you BEG of you to create a diversion in the gym with all those sweet friends of yours and take a picture of that guy. Oh PLEASE!!

Mel said...

I loved this post until your comment about Rubio's. I love, love, LOVE rubios. Like I could eat it every day and never get sick of it. Well maybe that's a bit much, but still..not your favorite? How dare you. :)

I love people watching at the gym. It sounds like your gym is the mecca though. Those people sound amazing.

Jordan Sparks. I am awesome at the celebrity game.

And that visual reminds me of that Friends episode where the guy Phoebe is dating likes to freeball it.

Oh!! And the Casual Blogger Conference is going to be hosting a GNO on June 26th, in Phoenix! I saw it on their FB page. Here's the website: www.casualbloggerconference.com

I think they will post info there.

The Atomic Mom said...

I want you to take pictures of your gym people...seriuosly. I want to see Mr Floppy and Grandma Velour....serioulsy, what gym do you go to?

Natalie said...

Why are there no pics of the gym people??!! I demand pictures!!

This is hilarious on its own, but would be over the top with the pictures...I'm just sayin'...

Tara LaRue said...

Jordin Sparks is the celeb.

This made me laugh and laugh and laugh and then cringe a little.

Love ya friend.

azandersens said...

Good old Jordin. What gym are you going to now? I need to renew my membership at the Y this week, and I'm wondering if I would like someplace else better. Don't get me wrong, as much as I love swimming with floaties (not the kind you put on your arms) in the pool . . .

Ari said...

I used to always see this girl in the weight room at my gym with her hair all done, make up, body spray and she would walk around and every 20 minutes she would lift something, but mostly she would just stand there haha. I wish I could have a pass to all gyms in az so I could come work out with you sometime and meet mr floppy!

Crandell Fam said...

Oh my gosh, your hilarity slays me! Wow! And seriously, it must just be your gym, because I just don't have the pleasures at mine. Sad. And hello, totally Jordin Sparks!

Andrea said...

Is that Jordan Sparks? I'm not good with all the young celebs. I know all the old folk though. Your gym experiences are hilarious!

Stopped by from SITS!

Wendy said...

Wow, way to go Jere!! It is a little alarming how famous he is becoming!

The Urban Cowboy said...

Floppy dude sounds like a 70's porn star wannabe or something. I don't think I would be able to contain the open laughter if I ever ran across him.

DianD said...

And that, my friends is why I just walk the oval streets (figure 8's around the block) vs. gym time. I'd be sure to end up on somebody'd blog as the laughing stock right while I was laughing at them! Just too vain. Just too vain. But, seriously...I just couldn't take the wannabe's! Sick! But your descriptions are very funny....You word pictures are sufficient, I'm sure. :)

Crystal Escobar said...
