What’s Yo Beef #41

by Shannon


So last Sunday I went to the Jays game to get a bobblehead for Rachel. There was a decent line, and I was in it for about 40 minutes. I could deal with that; I knew it wasn’t going to be a picnic going in. (Though in hindsight, I should have brought snacks, and definitely made it a picnic.)

Here’s where my beef comes in. Once we started moving, all these people just melded to the line and started cutting in all over the place! What the dude?! There was a line for a reason, buttmunchers. People who can’t obey society’s innate laws and have no social conscience in respect to lines. COME ON!

That is frustrating Shannon… If you can’t do a simple societal task as properly join a line, just stay home. But the question burning in all of our minds I’m sure, did you get the bobblehead?!?!?

My beef today, specifically, is that I finally mustered up the ambition to hem some skirts and dresses, but damned if I can find my straight pins! Generally, I am constantly moving shit around and ALWAYS forgetting where I put it. Its really, really, really… really annoying. COME ON!

How To: Get Fit and Have Fun

by Rachel


I may have outdone myself this time. I like watching baseball games, but sitting on the couch for 3 hours watching elite athletes kind of makes me feel fat and lazy. So my husband and I came up with the above. The best part id you will NEVER do the same workout twice. This is my favourite part.

For beginners, you can choose one team to follow for the workouts, or start with 5 or 6 innings.
If you want to be hardcore, you have to combine all plays happening; ie: a 2 run home run would be 40 mountain climbers + 20 kettle bell swings. Use commercial breaks to catch up, then finish with the commercial break cardio.
The Jays play a lot, so don’t over do it. 2 or 3 a week is plenty.

I’m pretty excited about this.
