Trying Something New. Again.

Yup.  Again.  I guess it's not technically new.  But it's new for 2018.  Does that count? First of all, I quit smoking.  It's been eight days since I've had a cigarette.  Most people would probably say "I'm quitting" this early on, but I refuse to.  I quit.  End of story.  I'm not picking them back up. ...

Conquering The Carbs

What does it take to make a person give a shit about themselves? I haven't quite figured this one out yet. It would seem that some people need a small prod. Some people need a swift, firm kick in the ass. And still yet, some others never quite seem to give a shit at all.... Continue Reading →

Humans Should Not Eat Their Young

I happened to mention to some friends recently that I now know why some animals eat their young.

Today I am feeling a little more generous and... Continue Reading →

Time To Start Over

As you may be able to ascertain from the title of this particular page and some of my previous blog entries, I am fat. Not phat, but fat. Well, maybe I'm phat, too. You'd have to talk to my husband about that one. There's no question, though, that I am fat. I discussed in a... Continue Reading →
