My third try at this post...  
...I swear LJ hates me tonight! :P

At last! The bus strike here is finally over! :) It made such a huge difference in the traffic this morning and only took me about 50 minutes to get into work. :) I've never been so happy to be stuck behind a bus as I was today! It felt so good to see all the senior citizens get on the bus with their heavy groceries and know that they wouldn't have to walk home.

And the big news here, I guess, is that the "American Idol" auditions are going to be held tomorrow at Aloha Stadium. People were lining up from this morning! I think that's a little crazy, but it's been a while since something really big has come here and I guess people think it's a once in a lifetime opportunity. I guess because I've never seen the show, I'm not realizing the scope of this or why people would take off from work and wait all day in the hot sun for this... It is interesting to hear about though. :)

And I actually went back to Curves today after not working out for almost two months! I took it easy today because I was afraid I'd strain my back again, but it seems to be okay - just to be sure though I tried to avoid that awful machine that I think was the culprit. :P It actually felt good to be back, and I know that I've been neglecting my health recently and I knew that I had to turn it around soon. I go through stages of eating poorly and gaining weight, then being disgusted with myself and focusing on eating better and working out. Hopefully this new attitude of mine will continue. :)

My Mom's still fascinated with the internet and although she says she won't get addicted, I can already see the tell-tale signs of it starting to show. :) Wait until she finds out she can download recipes from Food Network, read about "Oprah" when she's missed a show, and find out more info on "The Amazing Race", just try getting her off the internet then! ;)

From what I heard it wasn't as bad as most people expected it to be - traffic-wise. I can't wait to see the the folks who didn't make it too (hopefully it's no one I know) :P

Are you going to go audition? :)

Heehee... Not a chance! :) Aside from the fact that I'm too old and can't sing to save my life - I'd never be able to use that with my boss to get off work - he'd have a fit. ;)

I'm pretty excited to see the news tonight just so I can see what happened, though. :)

Well, I'm glad that I'm not the only one LJ seems to be hating on!
The other day, I had posts that would not go through, and the site was moving so slow that I just gave up! Glad to hear you are back at
curves again! Yes! One should always be kind to their back, and I speak from experience! When is the wedding???You Go Girl GO!

Ah, Barb! I've missed you! So glad to see you're back! :) I'm taking it easy at Curves - I don't want to strain my back like I did last time - that was horrible! :( And the wedding is March, so I think I have enough time to work my way back to the dress size I'd like to be. :) Hope all is well with you! Take care! :)

YEAH.... LJ was being a butt!

It was so slow that I was ready to give up! If this one didn't post, I would've given up and just gone to sleep! :P

I didn't catch the news to see the AI auditons here. I did read the newspaper this morning, though. Really, interesting...talk about people desperate to get in. I wanna know how many of them can actually "sing."

Yeeeeep, aren't you glad the Bus strike is over? I'm happy, I know there is way less traffic now.
Sherishutterbug93 on September 30th, 2003 10:51 pm (UTC)
I'd like to know how many of them can actually sing too... My co-worker who went there, only went there to keep his friend company and he said the crowd yesterday wasn't too bad. I wonder what the turnout was like?

And I'm SO glad the bus strike is over!! Traffic has been much better lately (and with the new contraflow lane on Nimitz...) It's been wonderful! :)

American Idol will provide hours of entertainment for you. It's hilarious! I'm glad your bus strike is over. That's been a while hasn't it? Poor older folks.
That's it girl! Get back to the gym. I have gone back to my 'walking for an hour'. I couldn't afford the local gym and the one I can afford is in too bad a neighborhood. Be happy you are lucky.
Your Mom sounds like she is having a good time; good for her!
