    Good article! For me the hardest of the 7 is the "why" of eating. I still find myself checking the fridge and cabinets for something only to find nothing and then repeating the process like if I don't remember what just happened. This is when my snack food binging is the worst.

Sweaty workout? Marathon? Change clothes without getting NEKKID!!

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Just saw an interesting Kickstarter campaign that ends this Saturday November 1, 2014 -

The Undress!!


Different colors, and the size ranges look to go all the way up to US size 24-28 or so? (Says their XL covers up to size 24-28, which is roughly equivalent to a 2x or 3x?).

The first website just scrolls on and on with various photos, FAQ's, size charts etc. I'm waffling. But I can see that it would be handy for those marathon runners, triathletes, sport teams, etc, and they even suggested professional models etc.

Check it out!!

Pitfalls of International Travel

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

While in Ireland, we stopped in Dublin to visit an IKEA store that was on our way to the hotel. I know that there are IKEA stores in the USA, but they are 250-300+ miles away.

We discovered these candies at the end, right by the checkout:

Did we skip pass them? Noooo!
Sadly, it appears these are only available in Europe. I've no clue how to pronounce "Daim" - it almost looks like it's supposed to sound like the American Redneck version of "Damn" as in "DAAYYY-emmm, these sure are tasty candies, yessireebob!". But noticing that many words we say one way Statesides gets pronounced a different way in Ireland, it may be pronounced more like Dah-IM as in "Dada, we're in IMminent danger of consuming the ENTIRE bag in one fell senseless swoop of stupidity!" (which was pretty much the case, both ways you pronounce it....).

Although, to be fair, all three of us nibbled on them pretty much the entire weekend. We bought them on Friday, I think? and I just finished them off today. I have also eaten some ve-geh-TAY-Bells today. Vegetables was the other major word I noticed as being frequently pronounced in a different way. Just because I am used to hearing it one way as an American doesn't mean that it is the "correct" way...because.... as you know, Americans are a bunch of rebels who left the British rule, and. I suspect, went to a great deal of trouble to pronounce every word differently, so as to not "sound" British. That's just my theory, of course...

On their website, I discover an interesting article on the "Three reasons why we snack":

I want to write more, but I am on iPhone and need to save this and edit later. I already lost the first version of today's blog when I forgot how iPhone Safari "loses" everything entered in the blog draft if I stop to go look for a photo etc. And Siri is no help in reconstructing my thoughts, as she deliberately misunderstands everything my Deaf accent has to say (even the British version of Siri CAWN'T understand me!).

Talk more later...
