Twilight Zone Kind of Day

Yesterday was a field trip day and boy was it interesting. The day started off like any other. I went and lifted weights and had breakfast and then we headed out for Universal Studios.

I don't have a lot of time to write, so I'll make this quick.

The bus was hot. My friend burned her leg at the back of the bus on some metal. The bus driver was unsympathetic and told us to open the emergency hatch in the roof for air. We were moving, so needless to say we didn't open it.

The bus broke down.

He pulled into a McDonald's parking lot. I bet the management was excited to see a bus load of Chubby women get out of the bus, but to his dismay all we ordered were Diet Cokes, a few salads and a couple of yogurts.

We were stranded for 2 hours before we got a bus. The new bus was like a driving sauna, so we didn't get to workout, but we probably sweated off a few pounds. From what we heard the bus that made it to Universal on time had no air the whole time either. UGH!!

I do have pictures of the whole McDonald's experience. One of the best storied from McDonald's is that a lady named Janice told us she was going to go and order a diet coke. She asked a guy at the counter if she could borrow his tray, which had a big mac, huge fries and huge drink on it. She explained to him that we were from a weight loss camp and told him to watch our faces. One lady jumped out of her seat and was running towards her. I guess she just wanted a sniff of it. One lady I was told had the funniest look on her face. She said she wanted to ask her what she was doing, but each of us have to make our own decisions about what we eat, so she didn't say anything, but I guess her face said it all. The bummer was I just put my Camera away and was over talking to someone else and just heard the aftermath of it. The guy played along so well and was cracking up.

After that we got to Universal around 4 and had to be on the bus at 8:50pm. The average group on our bus got to see 4 of the major attractions. I had a lot of fun though hanging out with my buds, Kerry and Rebecca. We laughed so much and got some great pictures.

Bus ride home was HORRIBLE. He was driving SUPER fast and swerving, but the good part was the air conditioner had kicked in.

It was a major inconvenience, but now is a great story to tell.

It also must have been a bad bus day all around because some of my friends that didn't go to Universal took a bus to go to Downtown LaJolla and the bus had to take a detour and he went the wrong way and to make another long story short, he went down a street with cars parked on both sides and hit a car and took it's mirror off and set off the alarm. In the same bus there was a man yelling at my campmates about them being beautiful, but talking way too much about nothing and later exposing himself. It was a Twilight Zone kind of day.

I'm off to workout. I cannot wait to see you all again. EEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

OH MY STARS. Remind me not to take a bus ride with you. I think our lunch adventures are bad enough.

I'm off to buy organics (veggies and fruits). If I couldn't eat meat (or chose not to) I think I would be a fruititarian. I definitely don't like enough veggies to survive. :)

Love you. See you in less than 7 days!!!!!!!
