Tuesday's Tidbits

Driving to work this morning, possibly slightly over the speed limit, I glance up and see a police with his scanner gun pointing right at me. I flash the biggest plastic smile I could muster and mouthed "please don't pull me over." He smiled back and lowered the scanner. Nicceee!!!

I'm doing my part for the environment and California drought this summer by NOT washing my car. How about that? eh?

I have no plans for the Fourth yet. It really sucks. I am stranded because of where I live. If I leave, I probably can't really come back until the weekend is over. Argh. Hopefully the Aggressor (new guy) will come through with some fun plans.

I've been a super yoga queen - going about 4 times a week. Can't wait for class tonight. Decided to do yoga instead of cleaning my super dirty apartment. I have my priorities.

That is all for today folks.

I'm liking your priorities. Hope that you figure out something fun to do for the fourth!

chia said...

It's pathetic when I'd rather clean my apartment than do yoga ;-). I wish there was a proper studio here for it. You west-coasters have all the fun!

teacherwoman said...

If it makes you feel any better, I will be heading home to spend time with family over the fourth AND paying an arm and a leg to do so!

Vanilla said...

Maybe I'll try that next time I speed past a cop, because my approach of using my middle finger to make my nose look like that of a pig's is clearly NOT the way to go.

Zombie Mom said...

I hope you end up with fab plans.. I pretty much always flirt my way out of tickets... last time (about a year ago), my mom was in the car with me and she was both unbelieving and scandalized that I chatted my way out of a ticket for an illegal u-turn over a quadruple solid yellow in front of a police sub-station... I was honest with the cop - I was in a hurry to get my roots done!! I figure my shelf life for getting out of tickets that way is about to expire.....

Way to get a pass on the speed trap. Enjoy yoga tonight and I hope you come up with a great plan for the Fourth.

Robin said...

Nice job on the police officer. I'm only a little ashamed to say that I cryed my way out of a ticket once. I didn't mean to, I was just having a really bad day.

The Aggressor, huh? Interesting

Yoga always trumps cleaning.

Viper said...

Flash the cop a smile. I knew I wasn't doing something right. Those public indecency fines were starting pile up.

N.D. said...

Wow, that's alot of yoga! I'm lucky if I go once a week. Are you super flexible as a result or maybe super peaceful?

Mrs. K said...

nice move with the cop! :)

Glam said...

Yea, I have to pull the "I'm married to a firefighter" card. But hot damn it sure works! I'll be in long beach in September to walk in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer! is that where you are? You could always email me too at mickelson(at)digitalpath(dot)net and maybe even see eachother for dinner if I'm close enough to you.

Well done. That would never work for me because my brain wouldn't function fast enough to have me smile at the right time. I'd have the guilty-as-all-hell / deer in the headlights look going on. Not the way to get out of a ticket, that's for sure.

Marcy said...

That's all you have to do? I've been flashing hooters and getting tickets left and right. Totally kidding!

Kevin said...

One of the few downsides of being male:not being able to get out of a ticket on good looks

TNTcoach Ken said...

I see Ze plan is working perfectly..... Ha

MissAllycat said...

Nice work on the ticket. Sometimes it pays to be a hottie. :)

M*J*C said...

Great job with the cop! I'm impressed with all the yoga, that's one thing I would love to start doing...just haven't made the time for it...gotta get on that one!
Good luck with "The Aggressor", hopefully he'll come up with something good!
Have fun at yoga!

Heather said...

Hilarious about your interaction with the cop. I'm so jealous of the bikram; we don't have a good studio around besides the super hippy prenatal yoga. No thanks.

Do we know about Aggressor? What's the scoop?

Crystal said...

i say yoga over dirty apartment anytime.

gotta say, it's great to be a woman cuz men sure don't get to enjoy those police moments like we do!

carla said...

I totally understand the yoga addiction. You know the place I go has a nice little boy toy that works the front desk. He is amazing. Just sayin.

Jess said...

Did you also hear that now it is illegal to talk on your cell phone and drive in California? The Gov signed it into law this week, so even if you were speeding, at elast you weren't also on the phone. Even a white smile might not let you off on that one. I hear the fine is a max of $600.

Sarah said...

You like masculine names for these guys - Agressor? Indication of personality? ;)

AKA Alice said...

I would soooooo rather stay home over the 4th weekend...and not have to travel to a family wedding (his side, not mine) in No Cal. Plane travel, kids, inlaws all weekend. Hopefully there will be plenty of wine (or in my case whine?)

Non-Runner Nancy said...

I'm sure it didn't hurt that you are gorgeous and probably made his day. :D

Um, we need more on the Agressor character.

You are a YOGA HERO!

Matt said...

Hope you have a fun 4th.

Good luck on getting that apartment clean

Lily on the Road said...

Sweet with the radar!!!

Priorities sound just about right with me!! Have a GREAT July 4th!

Viv said...

You totally have do teach me that killer smile that make cops not give you a ticket. I hope the Aggresor sets something fun in motion. I like the name of the new one. Being submissive every once in a while is fun, hehehehe
