I've been seen lately with a mysterious apple. She's a cutie, and so sweet. I've recently been reading a quacky diet book from the late eighties. Some of it is utter ridiculousness, but here and there are deposited a substantial amount of c... Read more

I'm hopped up on cold medicine (I even have a fever, whoa!) so forgive me if this is as convoluted and uncontrolled as it seems to me right now. Julie D used to tell people that she'd always been overweight, but the truth is, she hasn't bee... Read more
