Wonder Woman

23 May

This was a challenging week for one brave woman who faced 7 full days of incalculable perils. Most notably, she drove for 6 hours to attend a bachelorette party and managed not to punch any rude, grabby dudes at the bar. On another quest, she sat through a three-hour graduation without checking her phone and believe it or not, watched back-to-back-to-back-to-back episodes of River Monsters and Dual Survival on the same day without complaining. Oh, and also that show about bush people in Alaska. Whether that one guy has a speech impediment or an accent, we’ll never know for sure.

This very same woman juggled 3 different jobs, wrote poetry for an upcoming project and suffered through 6 hours total of exercising with Jillian Michaels without cussing once, which should go on some kind of record.

Fortunately, the week’s obstacles came to a close today (hopefully) after she was forced to listen to her boss give a 45-minute description of the menstrual cycle of female macaques. There’s a lot of swelling and yelling that happens, in case you were wondering. The images from that description will likely haunt our valiant heroine for the rest of her life.

I, of course, am this woman. Please take a moment to admire me for my brave deeds and noble qualities.

Now I am off to begin a new adventure in Honduras and Mexico where I will continue to fight on behalf of you all for justice, love, peace, sexual equality, a beautiful tan, alcoholic drinks served in pineapples and free hot dogs.

Have a lovely week!

    Have a blast!
    (Oh, and dress properly – people can see your butt when you’re sitting in the invisible plane.)

      I can’t believe no one had mentioned that to me before! Thank you. You’re a lifesaver.

    Your bravery is noted :)


    • La La May 23, 2014 at 3:59 pm #

      Thank you, Sara. Just paving the way for other girlfriends who have to watch boy shows and listen to people talk too much about odd things.

        I hear you about the boy shows. i think my partner also watches river monsters, which is even more weird because we live in Australia. I have to leave the room when it comes on, so kudos to you :)


        • La La May 23, 2014 at 4:03 pm #

          Hahaha yes! Perhaps you have a better plan set up in that area. :D

    That sounds like some saint-like patience you’ve had this week. No way could I have sat through a 45 minute explanation of anything this week. Hats off!


    • La La May 23, 2014 at 3:57 pm #

      Haha. I think of you every time I see a commercial for the Sister Act musical, which I bet you never thought someone would say!


      • pastramibasket May 23, 2014 at 4:38 pm #

        No, I can definitely say I never thought someone would be saying that. Haha. Now I need to see one of these commercials.


        • La La May 23, 2014 at 9:31 pm #

          Nuns dancing and singing. Up to their usual antics.

    I do hope a post about the macaques is forthcoming.


    • La La May 23, 2014 at 9:33 pm #

      Ha trust me, that’s not something I’d ask people to read. I shiver thinking about it.

    I was going to say the three-hour graduation without checking your phone and the six hours of Jillian Michaels would have won you that title. But the creepy macaque story? That alone qualifies you for a spot in the Super Hero Hall of Fame!


    • La La May 23, 2014 at 9:31 pm #

      That’s probably you every week or something. ;-)


  9. Johnny Ojanpera May 23, 2014 at 5:18 pm #

    Super duper. Viva la Mexico!

    I can’t do 20 minutes of That Woman’s DVDs, unless the sound is off. But mostly because I’m extremely lazy.

    Congratulations on achieving Expert status on macaque menstruation! You… You’ve earned it.


    • La La May 23, 2014 at 6:23 pm #

      Thanks! I hate that she talks the whole time and tells me that she hopes I’m “gargling my heart.” I hope she knows I downloaded her DVDs for free!

    And dont forget tiny umbrellas – Fighting on behalf of us for alcoholic drinks served in pineapples — with tiny umbrellas :D

    Wonder Woman is super hot. That is all I have to add. Plus hot dogs are gross, but if they’re free, meh, you kinda have to take one, and even though they have the actual word “hot” in their title, they aren’t hot. Wonder Woman is hot. But she’s not a dog. Well, this has been a journey into my mind! Have a great day.


    • La La May 25, 2014 at 1:18 pm #

      Hahaha this really made me laugh. She is rather hot, and I understand your opposition to hot dogs. They’re free and I’ve been dieting for so long that they’ll likely seem like gourmet food at this point!!


      • stephrogers May 25, 2014 at 9:50 pm #

        I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I’d rather eat salad than hot dogs, or Wonder Woman, but that wasn’t an option.


  13. ddupre315 May 24, 2014 at 7:43 pm #

    I bow to your awesomeness. May the force and all that stuff be with you on your journey to the jungle…Honduras is rain foresty right? Yeh, jungle.


    • La La May 25, 2014 at 1:20 pm #

      Totally a jungle…hopefully with not too many bugs that want to eat me. Thank you! Have a great week!

    I had a Wonder Woman action figure hanging from my rear view mirror for several years, cuz some very smart young children told me that I was her. And who am I to argue with the wisdom of the little ones?

    You have three jobs now La La? I don’t know how you find the time. You truly are an inspiration. And you put me to shame. Can I ask what is the third one?

    Unless you work at the zoo, your boss is weird! Have a great holiday–you deserve it!

    Carry on….. carry on………………….


  19. Trent Lewin June 16, 2014 at 9:26 pm #

    I think I need your life.


  20. Trent Lewin June 16, 2014 at 9:26 pm #

    Okay, that sounded creepy when I read it. What I meant was, take me with you!


    • La La June 16, 2014 at 9:33 pm #

      Oh…read this part second. You can come with me. Ok, yikes, I’ll stop.


      • Trent Lewin June 16, 2014 at 11:02 pm #

        Hee hee hee… well, a boy can dream. I say that a lot. Still don’t know what it means.
