  1. And Grokalicious, with her feet of clay, blushes...

    Well, that made my day! And I did grin although not because I think you're a groupie. I have no idea about my optimism's genesis. It's just always there for some reason. Not that I'm complaining,...
  2. A little of this, a lot of that

    And by a lot I mean that life is still good and getting gooder! Just brilliant two days of workouts. I rule, I rule, I rule. In all things.

    I entered a contest to win tickets to see Beck at Jimmy...
  3. The Importance of Being Grokalicious

    With apologies to Oscar Wilde, that rapscallion. Indeed, sometimes I am my own black sheep and don't need an imaginary sibling on whom to heap aspersions. I'll own up to anything and everything....
  4. Love's Labour Lost

    I forgot to get married. I also forgot to have children. Actually, I never wanted kids and when I was a kiddo I pretended entirely different things. I never wanted to be a Mommy (not that there's...
  5. The Frenchman, the Italian, and me.

    European men seem to fancy me for some reason. I've never actually been able to put my finger on why, but like me they certainly do. Whereas American men drag their feet in approaching me, men from...
  6. The apex of belief

    I've arrived at the apex of belief. I feel I am amazingly close to something fantastic. Just around the corner. I can see it, smell its heady bouquet, taste the sweetness of getting what I want, hear...
  7. That thing you do

    Hopefully, that thing you do makes you smile. That thing I do made me smile a lot regardless of the company surrounding me this fine spring day (yeh, saw the ex for a wee bit, ha!!!).

    Just an...
  8. Sunday lethargy

    Fighting the desire to lie in bed for the whole morning but will prod myself into going to the gym. And, because overcompensation is my middle name, I am also taking a hike with a friend a little...
  9. The Cult of Personality

    I'm every person you need to be. I'm the cult of personality.

    Maybe so. Years ago I came home upset from high school because I overheard some kids dissing me. I told my Dad and he said that was...
  10. My bright shining light

    The light of optimism shines from within me at all times regardless of how dark the day might seem. Today started off brilliantly, just glorious.

    I had one of those lyrically perfect workouts...
  11. This forced march

    What a long day. I awakened with zero hunger, did some core work and stretches (no gym scheduled today). And then...

    Drove to work, picked up auto check, deposited, saw 4 accounts in Santa Monica,...
  12. Ah, thanks, justpeachy. My cousin, the Doctor,...

    Ah, thanks, justpeachy. My cousin, the Doctor, says she is just fine in terms of mental acuity etc. No dementia, no loss of anything. Just general mother/daughter angst. Thanks for the nice words! ;)
  13. When you wish upon a star

    I make a lot of wishes. And, luckily for me, most of them come true. Every day another wish or two or three.

    All good. I am back up to 10-15 unassisted dips and religiously at the gym. Back...
  14. Chapter 3 in which the sh*t hits the proverbial fan...

    And hits it hard, indeed. First things first. I've been compliant with diet and have been working out brilliantly. The bad news is that I've lost a teeny bit of strength because of time off from the...
  15. Ineffably sad, so eff it.

    Out of the blue and for absolutely no apparent reason, I find myself sad and melancholic. This, in spite of a great workout this morning and some exceptionally sweet exchanges with the Frenchman. No...
  16. Not sure if they are supposed to read, but it's...

    Not sure if they are supposed to read, but it's always so refreshing when they (or anyone!) does!! Bring on the AlphaBits!

    Incidentally, years ago, when I was a young woman in my twenties, I dated...
  17. We ride at dawn...

    I do, anyway. Off to the gym with renewed focus and vigor. My cold is, at long last, over and I am eager to make up for lost time. Perhaps the unexpected break and sporadic workouts this last week...
  18. One doesn't have a sense of humor, it has you.

    Humor does have me, thankfully. Without it, I'd be the most banal creature ever or my impatience would bubble over in some ugly explosion of vitriol. If I add humor to the mix of my life or when I...
  19. Snarkiness be mine...

    No gym today. I woke up and was determined to go but I am still coughing, still have a little laryngitis. Had some coffee and made the executive decision to give it a rest. Sometimes a step backward...
  20. No lie, ssn679doc. I'm somewhat the Queen (or at...

    No lie, ssn679doc. I'm somewhat the Queen (or at least Princess) of sarcasm. Thanks for reframing my shakiness about posting into validation.



    Justpeachy is an apt moniker for you. Thanks for...
  21. Can the leopard change its spots?

    Maybe not so much as a rule but, I wonder. Sometimes I think I'm too frivolous and goofy here and that some changing of spots is in order. My humor and snarkiness is meant to amuse myself or anyone...
  22. I'm back! Ahhhhhhhh

    A little laryngitis, a wee bit of congestion but back! Feel so good that I am going to the gym tomorrow. Yay!!!! What a great day, ate healthfully and compliant and enjoyed all of it!!!! Yes!!
    ...
  23. Right, right, you're bloody well right...

    Or, so my Mom seems to think. Ok, this is rich!!!! I'm still utterly and completely blown away from this. I've been walking around pinching myself from time to time since it happened because it just...
  24. Conquered, in a way.

    I did conquer the world today. Or, mine anyway. I may have done a little too much and may have eaten not quite enough, but all-in-all it was a good day. The crazy part of me wants to go to the gym...
  25. How cool is that?

    I really am back with the living this time. Just the last vestiges of a cough and I'm better than new! Off to conquer the world!!! :cool:
