Not so surprising . . .

The Scientology Gods are crying today. TomKat is coming to an end. Although, the divorcing doesn’t really surprise me, I was a little stunned that Katie actually beat Tom to the filing.

Jerry Sandusky – guilty as charged! Now he is on suicide watch. I am surprised that the coward didn’t take care of that before the trial. I am not quite sure why anyone wants to preserve that man's life.

One of the headlines recently on ABC news was Pregnant Snooki – 8 surprising things you didn’t know.  I didn’t click, but now I am wondering if some of that information might have been vital in helping me understand people’s need to know anything about her. 

I was surprised recently to hear that the award money of Nobel Prize winners will just be 1.12 million dollars next year. In my naivety, I assumed it was just a prestigious award without funds attached to it. I guess the prize money is one of the reasons Al Gore could fund his private jet.

I was surprised during a recent Nightline report to hear that a female going topless in New York City is not against the law. After further thought, I shouldn’t have been too flabbergasted considering it was probably a predominate male legislature who thought that allowing female nudity on their city streets was a good idea.  

It’s not surprising that the two colors that entice people to eat are red and yellow. Anyone could have looked at one of the 33,000 McDonald’s worldwide to figure that out. After hearing that, I was surprised that my new favorite restaurant is called The Blue Lemon. They offer great food without the need of color enticements. 

Not surprised that Kimye was upset that they were not featured on the Kisskam during the NBA Finals. I am just happy that Kim Kardashian has finally found someone who truly deserves her!

My friend recently told me about her super spinach breakfast shake.  I was a little skeptical, but thought I would give it a try. I was surprised that it was really, really good.

 In a blender combine the following:

4-5 cups loosely packed spinach
1 apple, chopped
5-7 strawberries
1/4 cup blackberries or blueberries
handful of almonds
1 - 1 1/2 cups water

Prepare to be amazed!
