I've spent a lot of time "hiding" behind outfits that would be far more appropriate for a teenaged boy, or at least Bruce Vilanch. Oversized t-shirts that hide my be... Read more
A poetry-inspired rant

The Leaden-Eyed, by Vachel Lindsay Let not young souls be smothered out before They do quaint deeds and fully flaunt their pride. It is the world's one crime that its babes grow dull, Its poor are ox-like, limp and leaden-eyed. Not ... Read more

I refuse to write anything mean about those very adorable, very earnest high school thespians. Except that if there weren't so many dramatic pauses, I'd have been home 1/2 hour earlier. Your son is . . . . . . . . . . . . deeeead. Not - - - ... Read more
Theat-ah critic strikes again
Saturday, February 06, 2010      4 comments

Saw a good version of "All My Sons" at the Nevada Conservatory last night. Thought the acting was mostly terrific. The set design was so good. It was an Ohio back yard in the post WWII era. They had what looked like grass on the ground and l... Read more
Makin' my goals public
Saturday, January 30, 2010      9 comments

I've been setting some goals, so I thought I'd keep myself honest by putting them here. My goal for this weekend is to organize all of my clothing. Closet, drawers, laundry basket, coat closet. By Sunday evening. Obstacle to overcome: think... Read more
negative self-talk
Friday, January 29, 2010      8 comments

I have a really bad habit of thinking bad things about myself. It's almost like a mean, petty, bitter little critic lives in my head. It's such a part of me that I don't even really notice it. I've been trying to catch myself when the critica... Read more
My Freak Flag

I almost dyed my hair -- happened just the other day. But I'm committed to going gray. I stopped dying my hair in April and it still hasn't grown out. I'm the grayest person at work but not the oldest. I don't judge anyone for what they do w... Read more
Perfectly Good Food
Wednesday, January 27, 2010      11 comments

I was zapping what I thought was just one veggieburger, but it turned out there were two burgers in the packet. I didn't want two, but I knew that if I put the extra burger in the fridge that it would get icky. I didn't want to throw perfectl... Read more
Ping pong self esteem
Tuesday, January 26, 2010      9 comments

I'm having fun "meeting" new people and basking in their wisdom and kindess. But sometimes I'll post a comment and the next day think I was accidentally rude or arrogant. I'm so busy second-guessing myself that I freeze. That's why I didn't ... Read more
Betrayed by my body
Sunday, January 24, 2010      10 comments

Last year I hit my goal weight in April and even dipped below it, using the Medifast plan. I was in the transition to regular food phase and still was losing a little bit. My skin didn't quite fit, but I didn't care. Then in May I got a call... Read more
Using the Wii
Saturday, January 23, 2010      6 comments

I use the Wii Fit running program but instead of jogging on the floor, I use a little mini-tampoline. I am able to work up a good sweat, and it doesn't hurt my knees. I love my Ipod, so I try to listen to it while I exercise. I run the island... Read more
