A Hell of an Exciting Week

I just got done eating a Supreme personal pan pizza and two breadsticks from Pizza Hut Express.

Damn, I’m exciting.

And very full.

And also quite lame, since I live in a city that prides itself on great pizza, and I just ate Pizza Hut.

That’s pretty much how my week has been. I worked a lot of overtime and watched a lot of t.v. Yep, quite lame.

Wait, I guess there were one or two kind-of interesting things that happened this week. Let’s see… (Cue groovy flashback music.)


After a long day at work, I hopped on the Wii Fit, and it didn’t yell at me!! I was so surprised—and frankly, thrilled. I hate being yelled at—even if it’s by a computer. Then I bitched and moaned about not having an MP-3 player.


After a long day at work, Buck and I did our 30 minutes of exercise, and then I listened to the Iwanski/Winter show. Winter amused us with tales of bad doctors and knee trauma, while Iwanski apologized for everything bad that has ever happened to anyone.


After a long day at work, I went out with Buck and two other friends to Heaven on Seven, Chicago’s best Cajun restaurant (in my opinion). Our friend Carol had us cracking up with her description of a date with a guy whose looks and personality were not just ugly, but—in her words—“so, so, so ugly!”

After dinner, Buck and I went to Trader Joe’s grocery store. While we were checking out, we were both impressed by the friendliness of the cashiers. I had forgotten how nice the salespeople are there! I mean, unusually, freakishly nice.

I had a perfectly lovely chat with the salesguy about the best high fiber cereals on the market. I am not kidding. I really did. It was awesome.

Later, I arrived home to find out that Iwanski had gone to the library that day and picked me up two Supernanny books. Hooray! Even though he can’t fathom why on earth I like to read about child behavior when we don’t even have children, he’s still nice enough to pick those up for me. What a great husband!


Iwanski called me at work to tell me that he ordered me an MP-3 player online. I told you he was a great husband! I am so excited for the arrival of my new “little one”!


After a long day at work, I came home to another surprise—Iwanski fixed our toilet! No more sitting down on the seat and having it slide out from under me! Hooray!

We celebrated appropriately with a few beers and some country music. (That’s exactly how rednecks would celebrate a toilet being fixed, right?)


Iwanski and I took a walk through Millennium Park and marveled at the beauty of the changing leaves.

See, isn’t it beautiful?

All in all, I’d say it’s been a good week.

I've only been to Millennium Park once a few years ago. It seems to me that the repaired toilet could have been the hi-light.

Mathman6293 said...

I didn't finish my thought... I thought park was very nice and the giant mirror was cool, too.

Diane said...

YAY Chicky for so many reasons! :)

Maria said...

Sounds like you are two peas in a pod.

And, by all means...use my booger post.

Leah said...

Sounds like a great week!

Pizza hut always leaves me feeling lame for some reason too.It always sounds like a great idea, but I don't think I've ever left the place happy. :/

rosemary said...

i am right there with the pizza...i aspire to lower standards. yea on the mp3.....could iwanski call steve? i want a kindle for my birthday and he is resisting claiming as my father used to..."they are not perfected yet." nothing like a sturdy toilet to round out the week.....btw, typing with cats makes caps impossible.

Sling said...

A new mp3 and a sturdy toilet seat//
You must be feeling just a little bit spoiled I'd wager. ;)
Have a great week ahead as well Miss H!

MaryRuth said...

I dunno...that sounds like a pretty good week to me. Nobody got hurt and nothing started on fire.
We had a toilet seat like that too...I'd slide off the side and my butt cheek would touch the icky porcelain-ewwww!

Miss Healthypants said...

Mathman--Millennium Park IS nice...and the MP-3 player beat out the repaired toilet only slightly, as the highlight of the week.

Diane--yep, hooray! :)

Maria--we sure are. I posted the link to your booger post. :)

Leah--I think Pizza Hut always tastes okay, but later I just feel ICK.

Rosemary--I have no idea what a kindle is! I'll have to look it up.

Sling--I enjoy the feeling of being spoiled--after all, I am the youngest of 8 siblings. :)

Mary Ruth--so you know my pain! I'm so glad that toilet is fixed. :)

Miss Healthypants said...

Rosemary--okay, now I want a kindle, too! Those sound cool. :)

Kimberly Ann said...

Good week indeed. The toilet alone qualifies as a triumph.

sageweb said...

you will soon be able to sit on a non-wobbling toilet and listen to your Mp3 player.

Speck said...

A terlet fixin' is always a cause for celebrationing!

Barb said...

Sounds like a perfect week to me! I don't need excitement nearly as much as I used to!
