Fifty Shades of Monday

By now, especially if you've checked Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and any other social media accounts you use, you know that today is Monday and everyone's complaining about it.

So, let's complain, er...talk...about some random things, like strange beach behavior, horrible books and topics that just won't die.

Like being random. Anyway...

I saw a guy bring a hammer to the beach. No lie. He was a father of three, and apparently he needed a hammer to pound on top of his beach umbrella. I've never seen someone have to do that. In fact, while he was hammering away, a woman ran over to him and told him if he just wiggled the umbrella back and forth into the sand, it wouldn't blow away. But, he brushed her off and kept hammering. It was hilarious and sad. And annoying. WHO PACKS A HAMMER IN THEIR BEACH BAG? I mean, think about it. He threw in some towels, a couple books, some sunscreen, maybe a football...and a hammer.

Meh.

Meh.

I started reading Fifty Shades of Grey. I thought I'd give it a whirl since the movie trailer was released...but it's horrible. The author obviously does not know commas exist, and..."the Merc is a fun drive, and the miles slip away as I floor the pedal to the metal" was when my head finally exploded. MERC? Flooring the pedal to the metal?! I can't. Also - the first conversation between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, which was filled with unintelligence, confirmed that I really don't want to know any more about these two morons, or "what makes them tick", as Mr. Grey said twice in two pages. Idiot.

Let's be honest, though. I'm 98% sure I'll Redbox the movie.

What time do you eat lunch? I read somewhere recently (Embarrassingly, I can't find where I read it, though) that said 12:38 p.m. is the best time to eat lunch. It's the best time, because your body's metabolism is at its highest or something like that. Personally, I don't like eating lunch at the same time everyday. I'm not even really a huge fan of lunch, anyway...are you?

I need to find some good juice/smoothie recipes. People here in Southern California are big on fruits and veggies...and juices. Please feel free to share your favorites with me. Maybe I can have THAT for lunch. At 12:38.

A mom in Canada is upset that she got picked on (although Yahoo! Health is calling it fat -shaming) because she wore a bikini to the beach and her stretch marks were clearly visible. So, the 33-year-old mom of 5 did what any mature adult without the guts to silence her bullies in person would do: She took to Facebook to rant. Yawn. I mean, if she really wanted to make a difference/do something different in the way of this hot topic, she should have had her husband videotape her while she confronted them in person. Otherwise, all these 'complaining mom' topics are getting boring and super redundant.

Especially the "should kids be allowed to eat at fancy restaurants" one. The answers/comments are always the same. NOT IF THEY CANNOT BEHAVE. Duh.

Happy Monday!
