• I . . . well, there’s no good way to say it so I’ll just get it out as quickly as possible: I got sucked into Twitter. I know. I KNOW.

New post up at Gather, with ridiculous photos.

• JB has long declared his dislike for pandas, the animal that won’t screw to save its own species. I made him watch the video on this page so I could be all, I bet you like pandas NOW! Because how could you NOT? And he looked at me like, you dumbass. That business of acting all cute and friendly is totally a ploy so they can get close enough to eat off all your face-meat, one hunk at a time.

• I forgot how much I hate the stage babies go through where they randomly stick their own fingers down their throats. Gag me with a LAWNMOWER, Dylan, knock that shit off.

    I love the reasons why JB doesn’t like pandas!

  2. Kym on May 14th, 2008 8:46 am

    We just broke our 3yr old of his binky and that’s all he does is shove his finger’s down his throat, gross!!

  3. warcrygirl on May 14th, 2008 9:17 am

    An animal that’s too lazy to fuck? Yeah, I’m right there with JB.

  4. jonniker on May 14th, 2008 9:22 am

    Oh for FUCK’S SAKE LINDA. Twitter. TWITTER. I’ve resisted for so long but keep thinking … well, maybe. MAYBE. And then I think of the time suck. And the following. And the whole thing and I console myself with the fact that there are fellow holdouts like yourself.

    And then you had to go and BLOW IT. And now what’s my non-Twittering excuse? NOW WHAT?

  5. Emily on May 14th, 2008 9:23 am

    The so called “rediculous” photos over at Gather lead me to believe that the Turbo Jam people should be paying you TONS of cash monies as a spokesperson because DAMN your leg muscles. Holy crap I am buying that video right now.

  6. Christina on May 14th, 2008 9:28 am

    I know you’ve mentioned the TurboJam DVDs a bunch of times… but when I went to Gather, like Emily, I was also blown away by your insane leg muscles – and I have been in need of an effective home workout for a while… so I bought the TurboJam DVD off Amazon.

    Question: while I will automatically assume that I will feel like a jackass as I jump around/punch the air/etc, are the moves hard to pick up on? The Billy Blanks ones generally frustrate the crap out of me (not that I’ve tried any of them more than twice). I’m fairly coordinated, but I’m just worried that two weeks from now I’ll still be flailing around wondering what the hell I’m supposed to be doing.

    Thanks for the recommendation!

  7. Jennifer on May 14th, 2008 9:35 am

    I just came here after looking at your leg photo on Gather and I see that Christina and Emily above beat me to it. I was going to say THE SAME THING about Turbo Jam paying you money because that photo by itself will cause their DVD sales to spike today.

  8. Marie Green on May 14th, 2008 9:39 am

    I refuse to even CLICK on the that twitter link, because I know if I do, I’ll emerge and it’ll be Friday morning, and I’ll be like, Dude, I need to pee.


  9. Emily on May 14th, 2008 9:53 am

    Twitter is like those aliens in bad SciFi movies: join us and you won’t get hurt. Naturally, I couldn’t resist. I’m glad to see that you’ve joined our ranks.

  10. whoorl on May 14th, 2008 10:15 am

    I can’t BELIEVE you joined Twitter. Next will be Jonniker, and then I will be forced to remind you of the mean things you all used to say.

    YOU CAN’T RESIST TWITTER’S CHARMS. (Although, I quit cold turkey last month. I couldn’t handle the time suckage.)

  11. Monica on May 14th, 2008 10:20 am

    My brother always says that pandas are smug. He refuses to visit them at the zoo.

  12. ZestyJenny on May 14th, 2008 10:43 am

    Yay for twitter! I’m glad you’re on!

    I don’t think it has to be that much of a time suck. I check it a few times a day online, and it’s fun to have text messages to read in lines or traffic or whatever.

    I, too, am off to buy that Turbo Jam video. DAMN, WOMAN. Hello, legs!

  13. Amy on May 14th, 2008 10:54 am

    I just wanted to thank you for posting those pics at Gather–they have totally motivated me too, and I already ordered Turbo Jam off Amazon; plus I recorded Inhale. I’ve been needing to shake these pounds since my last unfortunate year of 2 2nd trimester miscarriages and those were just the photos to get me off my butt and out of my funk.
    Thank you!
    And, wow. Awesome muscles!

  14. nonsoccermom on May 14th, 2008 11:22 am

    OH MY GOD my daughter is at the exact same stage as Dylan, it sounds like. CUT IT OUT already.

  15. WCD on May 14th, 2008 11:27 am

    Twitter is the devil.

  16. Megan on May 14th, 2008 12:42 pm

    I’ve jumped on the Turbo Jam bandwagon. I ordered it off E-bay today. :)

  17. Taryn on May 14th, 2008 1:14 pm

    I just started using Twitter as well!

    Great post at Gather too. I bet no one messes with you when you flex those muscles.

  18. Kate on May 14th, 2008 1:26 pm

    Yep, I’ve got my bid in on Turbo Jam BeachBody on Ebay too. Damn girl. Those legs. And here I thought *my* calves were pretty nice. Ha.

  19. Lawyerish on May 14th, 2008 1:44 pm

    NOOOOO. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Not you, too! The Twitter people GOT YOU. {sobs dramatically into hankie}

    Dude. Your legs? Holy smokes!

  20. Meg on May 14th, 2008 2:19 pm

    I see I am not the only one who ordered Turbo Jam today! The photos sold me.

    I am really enjoying the workout blog, Linda. Kudos to you for putting it all out there and inspiring so many of us.

  21. Allison on May 14th, 2008 3:01 pm

    Hooray! I was wondering when you’d get Twitter. Coz mouth-breathingly checking this site and your ParentDish posts hitting REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH isn’t enough daily Sundry.

    Oh what like you all don’t do the same thing.

  22. Jennifer on May 14th, 2008 3:13 pm

    Who in the sam hill doesn’t like PANDAS!?

    I think someone needs to have his eyelids taped back a la Clockwork Orange and be exposed to the baby panda sneeze on a continuous loop:


  23. Josh on May 14th, 2008 6:03 pm

    Fuck pandas. Pandas are the lamest bears ever. Grizzly bears, now there’s a real bear. Even Polar bears are cool. But pandas? Pandas can kiss my white ass, the useless, no sex havin bitches. Pandas are this (hold up fingers) close to ruining bears coolness forever, I say we put a bullet between their eyes and replace them with cyborg panda bears that know karate and can fly and cook and shit. That’ll give all those Asians in their little goofy SARS masks something productive to work on besides a bunch of fluffy punks ass critters that don’t even want to get laid.

  24. Margo on May 14th, 2008 9:04 pm

    Is JB also Jack’s complete lack of surprise?

  25. Lesley on May 14th, 2008 9:21 pm

    The Panda is so cute that I think if I had to be attacked by a bear I’d pick the Panda to maul me over the other available species.

    If I were a Panda living in a cage I’d resist perpetuating my species for the sake of not wanting to inflict the same dreary zoo life on my offspring. (Chinese zoos are some of the worst in the world, despite the alleged love for the Panda; which is comparable to the alleged love and reverence shown the many abused and exploited elephants in parts of Asia.)

    Linda, I just want to comment on the awesome state of your legs. Holy Christ, woman, those are some awesome muscles. I will definitely persist with the Turbo Jam. I’ve now got Chalene’s Cardio Party 1 (which is even better than P, K and Jam) as well as Turbo Sculpt which is as good a workout with weights as Crunch Boot camp (which I also just bought and like very much). I’m using 8 lb weights on the boot camp and the Turbo Sculpt and hope to increase the poundage bit by bit.

    Btw, I found this site http://www.collagevideo.com/
    is a good one to preview workout DVDs.

  26. sundry on May 14th, 2008 10:05 pm

    Christina — sorry I couldn’t respond sooner, but if you’re checking back: I am incredibly uncoordinated and if I can do Turbo Jam ANYONE can. For real. The Punch, Kick & Jam routine is a bit easer to follow than some of the others I’ve tried (more repetitive/athletic, less choreographed) so you might try that first. It will take a little time to get used to what’s going on but each time you’ll get better at it. It’s way less insane than Tae Bo, I think.

  27. Alley on May 15th, 2008 12:37 pm

    So, which Turbo Jam videos are your favorites? I’ve only ever really done the 20 minute workout, Punch, Kick & Jam, and part of Fat Blaster, which tried to kill me. I have a bunch of the other ones, but the choice kinda overwhelms me and I never turn them on.

  28. Lesley on May 15th, 2008 5:38 pm

    I’d love to know where to buy that fat blaster one…without having to go through beachbody.com.

  29. sundry on May 15th, 2008 5:41 pm

    Lesley: I bought all of my Turbo Jam DVDs off Amazon, used. Totally the way to go.

    Alley: Those are the videos I have, too. I haven’t even tried any of the others yet. Fat Blaster is kind of brutal, but if you keep telling yourself you just have to make it through ONE very short segment at a time, that helps.

  30. kelly on May 16th, 2008 4:58 am

    Linda, I’ve been reading your site for years and I never knew that you were also an Office fan. I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who was woefully disappointed last night. I care too much too. ha.

  31. Deanna on May 19th, 2008 4:36 am

    looking forward to a twitter link on your sidebar.
    your smartass comments make me smile – mostly becaue I can no longer speak them aloud lest they be repeated in public by the kiddos.
    But they are the running dialogue in my head (and with hubby)!
