Friday, July 6, 2012

Happy Friday friends! I've had a cray-tastic work week and the beat is still going. I promise I am endeavoring to find a good blog rhythm. But, because I love it so much, I couldn't pass on the Newsflash this week!

1. I can never pass up these kinds of stories.... coffee could cut your skin cancer risk.

They did science on 112,000 people. Over a 20-year period, 25% of them developed basal cell carcinoma - skin cancer. They found that the participants who drank coffee (2 cups or more a day), were much less likely to be in that group of cancer people.  Caffeine is the key element in this finding. So, friends, it's Friday morning. I'm guzzling down the coffees. It's all about cancer prevention. All about it. Also, if I ever decide to go in a tanning bed, I'm just going to Britney Spears out and bring a giant Frappucino in there with me. ...I'm actually a little excited about that.

2. This man has 15 different Miley Cyrus tattoos:

Yep, 15 separate (and permanent) homages to Miley on his body. Don't ever tell me you're having a bad day. Presumably, he's going to snap out of this and realize what he's done. Now, that's a bad day.

3. More bad-choices-validation science! Eat fatty salad dressings!

According to science, you need to eat fat-based salad dressings to get the most nutrients out of the vegetables. The right combination of vegetables and fatty stuff helped people digest the most of the good things in the veggies. Salad with fat-free dressing is lower in calories, but the absence of fat causes the loss of some of the benefits of eating vegetables. I'm sure there are more details to know, but I'm writing thick and chunky bleu cheese dressing on my grocery list right now. It's the best.

4. Quote of the week:
"I eat cupcakes and I don't work out. But if you ask me in 10 years, I'm going to regret answering that way now. I don't even drink water. It's terrible." -- "unhealthy" person, Blake Lively
I call B.S. Give me a break. That body has spent some time fasting and on the elliptical. Let's be real here for a second. I hate reading stuff like this. It makes the rest of us spinning/running/dieting our buns off just feel like idiots, right? What a B.


5. Mermaids aren't real. Smart ocean people recently did an official study on this and determined there's no evidence to support that mermaids have ever existed.  Some show on Animal Planet explores whether or not there is a kernel of truth to the myth. The answer is no. No signs of "aquatic humanoids" have ever been found. Womp, womp. Science can be such a jerk. Why can't they let us dream. Whatever, SPLASH FOREVER!


6. Watch this weird European (I think) commercial:

Yes, it is an animated representation of feminine odor. WHAT THE HELL? While it's actually a pretty tasteful way to discuss smelly vaginas, who conceived of it? Like who sat down and had to brainstorm how to make Pixar-style lady funk? Idk, but I might need that job.

Well, that's all folks. This weekend I'm bopping down to my home in Houston to celebrate a belated father's day and spend some time with the parentals. Excited to go home and relax. Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I love both of the health-related posts....I am completely validated in my coffee drinking and my blue cheese salad dressing obsession. yay!! :)

  2. That Miley guy is making an appearance on my blog next week. So gross. Yay for ranch! Hahah. Blake was a b before this quote, but now I hate her more. And not in an I’m jealous of her sort of way. She just flat out annoys the crap out of me and she’s a terrible actress. I had no idea that people actually thought mermaids were once real. Insane! Have a great weekend with the fam!

  3. That's what the mermaids want us to think.

  4. Blake's just an idiot. I stayed skinny in college eating Doritos and candy but I'm not proud of it. I mean, who tells this stuff to the media!? People who want attention, that's who. It's amazing how some celebs can make us love them and others make us detest them just based on a few words.


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
