Deep Thoughts By Amy Handey

Do you guys remember on Saturday Night Live when they used to have deep thoughts by Jack Handey? Here is an example of a few:

If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is, "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is, "Probably because of something you did."==========

If you ever catch on fire, try to avoid seeing yourself in the mirror, because I bet that's what REALLY throws you into a panic.==========

Whenever I see an old lady slip and fall on a wet sidewalk, my first instinct is to laugh. But then I think, what if I was an ant and she fell on me. Then it wouldn't seem quite so funny.

Now, my deep thoughts aren't as funny today, but this is what I have been mulling over lately.

Have you ever stopped to think how many good choices you make on a daily basis in regards to our band? A lot of the times we think about the food we shouldnt have eaten or the mistakes we made that day...but as I was driving to the movies yesterday...I realized how well I am really doing! I could eat candy all day long if I wanted. I could have eaten popcorn, drank pop, gotten a huge bag of peanut butter M & M's. I could do this everyday. On my way to work everyday I could stop and pick up something tasty and naughty from McDonalds (like I used to do). At home I could gorge myself on slices of cheese, crackers dipped in Ranch, Oreos, ice cream, etc. But I dont. I don't do any of those things even though my band would let me. And this says something! This is why are band is a tool. This is why this isn't the "easy way out". We make positive and healthful choices everyday. And for that we should be proud girls!

Also, do you guys remember the video blog I posted with the sassy dress I got from Sears? The black one with the huge sequins on top? It was a size 16, originally $98 and I got it for $14? runs a little big and I tried it on. It totally fits. That's good...but I was going to wear it for our cruise which is over 2 months away. I don't think it will fit. What if I never get to wear it?

Also, I am very quickly running out of tops to wear to work! I don't have the money to go shopping right now...although I might have to cancel my dental appointment so I can afford to!

I saw the Proposal last night. SO much better than I thought it would be. Very good.

It's HumpDay ladies!


  1. what size do toy wear in tops? I have a TON of clothes but they are probably to big as well because "the boobies are real big" but I feel the same way about the band being a tool for us, thank you for accutally saying it for me! lol

  2. lol i just looked at what I said in that comment, I was talking about MY boobies being to big not yours LOLOL

  3. This is exactly what I needed today, thank you :)

  4. and ms amy, what size are you on top. I prob have some that I want to grow down into that I could send you also. my daughter was 'shopping in my closet' last night and didn't find anything! hehehee too bad! I love your amy-isms! still laughing. Jinx rhymes with minx!

  5. Alexis you are welcome!

    mary and Kathi-I am in a size 20ish top. 22's are becoming too big. I love presents :) lol

  6. oh..Kathi...I thought of jinx but I couldnt get anything to work in my mind that would have flowed with that

  7. Oh but honey you can't afford to lose your teeth either! I'm in the same boat and need new clothes too but I'm riding out what I have until it falls off. I don't care how I look to other people, I just don't want to spend that kind of cash right now when it won't fit soon after either!

  8. See Amy, you don't need us girls cheering you on, you did just fine on your own :) Seems your mindset is turning slowly (like we all have to lol) and it's not easy but we all need an epiphany every now and again to slap us upside the head and go "Hey. I'm actually doing ok. Stop being so hard on yourself." Looks like you just had yours.

  9. I love your words of wisdom and the deep thoughts too! I saw the Proposal last week and I really liked it. Ryan Reynolds face in the office when she pulled him in and announced the engagement was hysterical. Oh, and Sandra Bullock around the fire with Betty White!!! I had tears I was laughing so hard.

  10. well you definately have to make an occasion to wear that dress to! I know you will think of something. and you are so right about how we make good decisions everyday!!!
