Safty First

I got this in an email, and instead of emailing it to 10 other people or else I will die, I thought I'd just put it on my blog, because I thought some of these tips were good. Not to mention, I need all the help I can get with these things.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!

2. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you....Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy...The driver won't see you, but everybody else will.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their chequebook, or making a list, etc. DON'T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR , LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE... If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat.
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side... If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out.

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ...RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

9. Water scam! If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full ball so that you will go out to investigate and then attack.

While We're Talking About Things To Eat...

I have a suggestion for everyone out there! Recently, Eddie and I made a little addition to our cupboard. I didn't realize how much I needed it until I got it. Strawberry flavored milk mix. Like the Nestle kind? I forgot how amazing the fake strawberry flavor is! Speaking of fake fruit flavors, how about banana candy? Like the chewy runts? It doesn't even taste like banana but somehow it just makes me smile!

I NEED Some Empty Calories

I have a problem and I think you guys can help me with it. I started this cooking class at BYU (another one) and we made this broccoli salad thing. I thought it ended up being DELICIOUS. I actually really liked it, and I thought "hey, I should make this for dinner and Eddie will be so impressed with my nutrients." But right after my broccoli salad lunch, I started to feel pretty nauseous. This is the question that arose in my mind: Can your body get nauseous after eating too nutritious foods when you're not used to eating that way? This is not the first time I wondered this; I think maybe my body just isn't cut out for "real" food. I felt the exact same way as I did freshman year when my aunt gave me these New Skin daily women's vitamins, which I promptly stopped taking (and when I told my aunt she said "oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that. They make most people nauseous at first.") So is that vitamin thing what is happening here? Maybe instead of getting my nutrients though New Skin woman's vitamins, they're coming from food, and my body doesn't know what to think.

Anyways, to continue my story, I went home and made that broccoli salad anyway for dinner. Maybe if I force it, then my body will get used to it? Its about time I eat a more "balanced" meal. So I told Eddie it was making me sick, and he asked what I felt like eating, and I told him "empty calories."
