I’ve already selected mine, and when you enter them, you should see which ones they were.  It’ll show you how well your perceptions of [...]

List o’News.

-  Went to the doctor on Tuesday.  I now have confirmation that it’s not all in my head – I really am gaining weight at an alarming clip, particularly considering how little my eating/exercise habits have changed in the past several months.  I am under orders to eliminate as much stress as possible, because it [...]

An open letter to a mall worker.

I had just come from Gap, where I’d actually been able to find a pair of jeans that I thought would fit me for longer than a couple of months, and was on my way to Macy’s to spend the gift card I’ve had since Christmas.  That should tell you how often I go to [...]

I updated to the latest version of WordPress (you, should, too), and hopefully I’ve staved off the stupidity.  I get [...]

Michelle Duggar: balls of steel.

If you’d had so many children your uterus was in danger of rupturing, and you kept going, I would either think you were very stupid, or very brave, depending on your reasons and the results.

Michelle Duggar is pregnant with Baby #19, and all I can think is that this is a direct challenge, from [...]
