I am oddly happy that Rahm Emanuel has won in his bid for Mayor of Chicago.I tried to figure out why I cared at all and it suddenly occurred to me it is because I think he is hot and I want him to have anything he wants.



When it comes to my snarky picture the other day I wanted to admit freely and openly that I do have some excellently checked shirts. One of which may or may not be identical to the ones worn by my picture prey. However, if I were to go out to lunch and the person I was lunching with was wearing the exact same shirt I would be putting my coat on!

I am still losing just under a half a pound a month. It’s going to be another long year. I am happy that I am still losing, but geesh. A half a pound a month?

I will be happy to go to yoga tonight. I need to refocus. I am all discombobulated this week.

This weekend I read Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult.  Afterwards I saw that it got mixed reviews. I really enjoyed it.  Quick read.  It’s my first book by her and I will not hesitate to pick up another one.

I am having one of those weeks (months?) where everything is out of my control and I’m forced to be patient and wait for other people to get around to doing what I need.  I’m sure it’s good for me in some way.  It is however not good for the people around me.

Do you think it’s silly that I was so excited that my fish survived our sub-tropical temperatures when the power was out?  He’s a very old fish and I was just so sad that he might have died from something like that instead of old age.  I’ve been staring at the tank sadly for 24 hours and I can’t tell you how happy I was this morning when I suddenly saw him.  He’s a good little fishy.


So long.

  1. I, too, have some excellently checked shirts.  I love flannel.  Doncha just HATE that outta control feeling?  It makes me want to cut a bitch.Yay for steady weight loss, and old fish.

  2. The difference is that men don’t really care if they match one another.  Women are just different that way.  I don’t think I “matched” anyone since Mom used to dress my younger sister and I alike when I was in grade school.  Torturous.Jodi Piccoult wrote a book called The Pact and it was about a suicide pact.  Pretty good reading.  That’s the only one of her books I’ve read.  I feel out of sorts.  Probably because everyone around me is so grouchy lately.  I wish I could find a good yoga class.  I need a stress reliever.

  3. oh my gosh i think I’ve read everysingle one of jodi picoults books they are so good!!!! 🙂 Good luck with the weight loss though from your holiday pics you already look pretty healthy 🙂

  4. @isitreal_no – Thanks! 35 lbs down, 15 to go!

  5. hahahaha……. 

  6. My without contact eyes read snarky as skanky.  I thought…I don’t remember a skanky picture.  LOL

  7. steady weight loss is the perfect way to go, especially at a snails pace.  it denotes real life change.  good for you!  Rahm is hard not to pay attention to. 

  8. @Kissedbyadog – but it’s SOOO frustrating!@karila – It’s been a long time since I’ve been skanky (in public).  I may have to plan for it.
