A True Underdog Story

Anyone know what movie tagline today’s title came from?

I’ll give you a couple more hints.

“You’re going down like a sweet muffin!”

“You couldn’t hit water if you fell out of a boat!”

Anyone, anyone?

One more hint.


I begrudgingly joined a dodgeball team at work for a couple week dodgeball tournament sponsored by our gym. Each team needs at least one girl, so I’m quite the hot commodity these days. It also means that I’m going against a bunch of guys hurling rubber balls at me. Boy, was I scurred. I spent the last couple days worrying for my safety and praying that all my bones would stay in tact while simultaneously counting my blessings that I have health insurance.

I’m thrilled to announce that all the drama queening was for naught! It was actually pretty darn fun, and the guys seemed to go a little easy on me which I am not complaining about AT ALL. Sometimes genderism is fine by me! We played best out of 5 games during lunch. Unfortunately, our team (named Total Eclipse of Your Face) lost in 3… as in, we are now 0-3.  I also realized somewhat unfortunately that I will never be able to throw the ball hard enough to be a useful offensive player in any way. Oh well, at least I can bring the required X chromosome to the court.

I really didn’t eat anything too interesting today (a random hodgepodge of cereal, pop chips, more cereal, a small sandwich, an Odwalla bar, more cereal, a pumpkin bolani and a ton of fruit that had been chilling in the fridge for far too long). The Odwalla bar was actually pretty darn good. It was the first time I tried the Chocolate Chip Trail Mix flavor and it’s my favorite so far. And the pumpkin bolani was delicious, per usual. I think part of the reason for my lack of interesting eats has been the funk I’ve been in lately. I don’t think I’m necessarily depressed… just funked. Anyone know what I’m talking about?

What’s more exciting than my meal choices? Baby seedlings!

Stay tuned to see what they blossom into!
