I like addressing you all as “people”

If you liked the cartoon from my last post, go check out NatalieDee.com.  I warn you, though; some of them are not for the faint of heart! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!


Not much happening on the diet/exercise front.  Walking 3 or 4 days a week, eating is okay – could be better, but all in all not horrible.  Weigh in this afternoon, probably not much, if any, loss this week unless the scale fairy decides to take pity on me and grace me with smaller numbers. 


Eye is still twitching.  In case you were wondering.


Um, what else?  The new season of House starts this week…I think.  Actually I think it started last night but I haven’t watched it yet.  TGIDVR!


Oh, I think I have a girl crush on Sarah Palin.  Even though I try to stay as far away from politics as possible, I caught her speech at the NRC last night on TV and I was super impressed.  I laughed, I cried, I wanted to be her BFF. I think choosing her as a running mate was a very smart move on John McCain’s part. 


So it’s September now and it’s nearing my one year blogiversary and I’m thinking of going public. I mean, I’m thinking of letting friends and family in on the fun of my blog.  What do you all think – good idea or gateway to disaster?  Let me know your opinions plz.


It’s cloudy and rainy today. I need a nap. And some chili.


I know, I know. My posts lately have been super interesting and edge-of-your-seat exciting, haven’t they?!  Well I aim to please, people!  Stay tuned for more white knuckle thrill ride posts to come!!! Cause that’s how I roll.

  1. “all in all not horrible” is sometimes the best we can do, isn’t it? Good for you for weighing in anyway. Burying your head in the sand doesn’t help in the long run. Only hurts.

    Wassup wid da eye thang?!

    RE: TV shows. MadMen this season has been a bit disappointing. I think they are trying to top last year, and it’s all just a bit too much. The men are ALL creeps. It was OK when Don Draper was a bit of a cad, but this season he’s getting to be plain ole dispicable. I need to start watching The Wire on DVD again.

    Sarah Palin–LOVE HER. Just love her. I think she’s gonna kick Biden’s behind in debates. I’d like to see her go up against the top of the ticket, actually. That would be quite a show.

    Going public–I have mixed feelings. I shared my blog with my niece in law in Indy, and I think she visited once but I don’t think she reads regularly. The hubs knows about the blog but doesn’t read it. No one else in my family and none of my friends read it. I like it that way. I can say whatever I want and not have to sensor myself. Plus, do I really want these people I have to look in the eye knowing how totally neurotic I am about food & weight & exercise? Most of them, the answer is no. I’d share your blog with those selective few who you think can handle it, and who won’t cause you to think twice about what you will post. My 2 cents.

    Hope the rest of your week goes well. HUGS.

  2. Laura – “wassup wid da eye thang” made me guffaw! Yes, I really and truly guffawed.

    I have one family member that I would like to share my blog with, but if I tell her, she’ll tell another family member, and so on and so on. So if I tell one, then all will know. I just can’t decide.

  3. I AM on the edge of my seat waiting for your posts, Jill-ha!

    And two snaps up for Sarah Palin! I was so excited when John McCain chose her. It made me like him better for being so clever. Now I am looking forward to the race for the next few months instead of dreading it.

    Hmmm, don’t know what to say about ‘going public.’ My sister found out, and my best friend knows, my dad knows but is computer illiterate. I REALLY don’t want my mom to know, not because I want to write bad stuff about her, just because of how she reacts and obsesses over stuff…Even my sister, we’ll do something, and she’ll say ‘don’t you put that in your blog.’ or ‘don’t blame that on me in your blog.’ and she even knows your blog and might see this comment (Hi Mel, my most favorite sister…)

  4. Well, I have nothing to say about THAT, debby!!! I agree ab/ letting Mom know….the future therapy I would need if our mother ever found out I had a blog sends shivers up my spine! But the real only reason I’m commenting on here is because my friend, Julie, has a blog and her husband used to read it but said he got tired of it being so long. So at the end of her long ones, she writes one sentence and prefaces it with: “Skimmer’s recap.” That just cracks me up every time I read it. So overall, my opinion is, leave family out of it. Just FYI, Debby now knows about my blog too. Oh, and I think part of our phobia about family knowing is that our dad used to preach when we were growing up, and there was always this fear of being mentioned/used in one of his sermons!!!

    The eye twitch, Debby and I have both had. I believe “Nursy-Poo” told me it’s from stress. Any way you look at it, it’s a pain and I hope it goes away soon.
