Yes, I am single... and there doesn't seem to be a lot of progress in that area of my life (unlike with my weight loss!). However, I was thinking it might be kind of funny to go on the birth control pill. I haven't taken it in seven years (sin... Read more

LOL... At the Gym

Have you ever burst out laughing at the gym? This old movie called "The Swimmer" was on TV at the gym, and I was watching it with subtitles, no volume and my dance music in the background. The film was a bit dated, and I think it was based... Read more
