I just finished writing chapter 7. It's all about the third trimesters of our pregnancies. It brought back a lot of great memories, like my pregnancy induced carpal tunnel syndrome. Boy was I being sarcastic when I said it brought back great memories like my pregnancy induced carpal tunnel syndrome. That wasn't a great memory AT ALL! My hands would fall asleep all day long. They'd go numb while I was driving. I could barely lift a slice of pizza to my mouth.
I was retaining a serious amount of water while I was pregnant. Now that I'm 6 pounds away from my "goal weight," I don't mind saying I put on way more lbs. than the average pregnant lady. It was so fun being pregnant. I ate anything that wasn't nailed down.
Anyway, back to more serious things at hand - no pun intended. I've been trying to finish this chapter all day long but have heard news about this terrible earthquake in Chile. I also heard that Elliott Yamin, former American Idol contestant, is tweeting live from the scene. Apparently he was in Chile for a gig. And from what his tweets were saying prior to the quake, it was a really bad gig. That aside, CNN and ABC have been contacting him as their source on the scene.
My cousin Kelly and I were just wondering what ever happened to Elliott Yamin. We even joked that the guy walking into the Subway shop where we were eating lunch WAS Elliott Yamin. Clearly, it was NOT. Because Elliott Yamin was in Chile for a crappy gig that has now turned into a pretty serious news casting gig. If you're on twitter, follow him @elliottyamin
One day you're eating a sandwich talking smack about a guy, the next he's your primary news source for a catastrophic world event. You cannot make this stuff up.
ps-That's some SERIOUS dental work, wouldn't you agree?
