Music to Excercise To

Or in my case, not music. At my gym, and I use that word loosely, most of the rats like to exercise to 1) Fox News 2) ESPN 3) the Golf Channel.
Me, I usually prefer old sitcoms like Raymond, Friends, Seinfeld, King of Queens. Shows that make me laugh. But last night I found the perfect accompaniment. So perfect, I hardly knew I was walking my mile. Humoresque. Watching Joan Crawford emote made me forget all my aches and pains. I had never thought of watching TCM at the gym. normally preferring to watch movies in their entirety. What do you watch?

Also-be a pal and come out and see Megan and Theresa in their book swing on the west coast. Here are the dates.

I see, she has all these cool co-stars when she tours the fancy-schmancy west coast, but when she comes to Michigan she don't bring nobody. I see how we rate.

You'll have to the fancy-schmancy author with her in Michigan. Oh, and Mitch Bartoy will be with her in Romeo on Saturday and maybe at Aunt Agatha's on Thursday night.

I go to Curves so I exercise to music I would never normally listen to. I couldn't tell you what it is...but it has a beat that makes you move. Me, I like music like Frank Sinatra, Chris Conners, Anita O'Day, etc. But I don't think I could exercise to them.

How is that Curves? I hate my gym. Nobody except me needs to be there for weight issues. Nobody just walks on the treadmill, they all run. Nobody wants to watch mindless sitcoms. Nobody just throw sneakers on and comes. They all have zippy gym togs. I am a working class girl in a upper class community.
