Stuff We Do In Private

From the e-mail vaults of yesteryear (or yesterday, as the case may be). We funny. Enjoy!

This photo is courtesy of the Flickr 365 group that I participated in a few years back (the premise being that you take a self-portrait every day for a year). Amy challenged me to take one of myself in the restroom at work doing the Robot (which I was doing one day and e-mailed her about), et VOILA! Hey - I never claimed I wasn't a heee-youge dork!

Shannan

Shannan - My love for this picture is still equal to my horror that you have to do your business amongst that wall paper daily. I won't mention the giant cans of sauerkraut stored in there for who knows what reason.

in the bathroom, and I just have one question -
Why, when someone pulls too much toilet paper off the roll, do they just leave it all falling down and puddled all over the floor, instead of rolling it back up neatly? I cannot use toilet paper from the roll that has been laying on the nasty floor.

I do NOT know. I don’t even know how you just lose control over handling toilet paper to the point that you end up with all that extra.

that's what I'm SAYING!!!!

I like the fact that you completely skipped over the info that I was dancing in the bathroom (which I was totally doing). It's like you read it and thought - yep, that sounds about right.

You are so right. That is EXACTLY what I did. I mental pictured it and absolutely nothing about it seemed abnormal. It’s like how you expect a bird to fly or a bee to buzz.

NOOOOOO!!!!! Thank you for playing, but the correct answer is Disturbia, by Rhianna. We used to do a routine to it in Hip Hop class, and I was seeing if I've still got it.

I do.

Last night the zumba class was dancing to the Boom Boom Pow song by the BEP and I got my groove on to it.

I think our instructor tried to kill us last night in Boot Camp. I can't say for sure, but I have a strong suspicion.

No way man, she's built like a brick you-know-what house. She could wipe the floor with me.

I would be HAPPY to show you my routine. I will be bringing my satin hot pants, after all. Amy - can I borrow your sequin leg warmers so I don't have to pack mine?

what does "natch" mean exacary? that I can wear them? that I can't wear them because YOU'LL be wearing them? that you expect me to bring my own so we can both wear them?
~~~~

From: Amy
To: Shannan, Natasha

Natch(urally) you can borrow b/c I’ll be wearing my leotard, terry cloth headband, double roll socks and high-top Reeboks.

you always COULD rock a terry cloth headband.

From: Amy
To: Shannan, Natasha

I really, really could.

To: Amy, Natasha

P.S.
Don't forget to wear your suntan pantyhose with your outfit - they will really pull it all together.
~~~~

From: Amy
To: Shannan, Natasha

I’m wearing them under my jeans right now.
