This is not the same as match point. I have a set point which can go up easily but to get it to go down is very tough and with each passing year, it is tougher and tougher. As you may have guessed, it os all about my weight. Although i have been technically at […]

Over All . . .

Disclosure: The following superficial post is even more so than usual. This was not the author’s original intention. On many occasions, author plans to write about one thing, but fingers end up taking another direction entirely, and let it be said, much to the author’s chagrin. Author’s mortification at publication of her thought processes, trivial […]

First post in a week! It has been impossible to get back to these beloved virtual pages until now, such a flurry of activity has there been, what with the on-call weekend, long work days, evening meetings, Thursday meetings, packing and driving once again to NY. The reader will recall, we are not making our […]

The skin above my upper lip has begun to peel a little bit. I am not sure the whole face is apeeling yet, but there seems to be some action that I had not noticed until today. Otherwise I cannot really see much of a difference in my face yet. It probably takes a few […]

Girls With Crewcuts

Believe it or not, there are still lots of folks out there who think that a woman with a crew cut must necessarily be gay, have cancer, or both. In my lifetime, I have sported hair of many lengths, from quite long to extremely, extremely short. For instance, right now, I am freshly shorn, having […]

I am listening (cannot watch!) the debate and once again, it is the moderator who is absolutely no help whatsoever to Biden, who is lying lying lying and Mr. Arrogant Pipsqueak who doesn’t know his ass from his elbow. I am absolutely churning with frustration and anxiety. I think Biden is doing much better than […]

Somehow I am getting a feeling that these vac posts will center on my adhering to my weight control efforts and success therein.There may be bits and snippets of other things, but often they will be somehow weight-related. ┬áSo far I have managed to stay 100% on track for 5 full days, 1.5 of which […]

Cb and I are on vacque. We left Pgh on Saturday and drove down to Baltimore to see Max and Ani perform in a dance that she choreographed. It was a pas de deux, and it went very well. Both of them were very graceful and Ani’s choreography was lovely and pretty classic. Each of […]

The fridge repair failed. No water is going in, but there is ice at the bottom of the freezer on a daily basis, even 2x a day. Unfortch, on our way out the door to go on our 10th honeymoon, we did not admonish Woody, Deirdre and Mollie about de-icing the bottom of the so-called […]

Vanity Fair

I admit that I am a pretty vain person, to a degree. Actually, to the degree that the least work is required to maintain my appearance. For example, I did always want to be blond, like my daughter, and have long flowing locks, but that wouldn’t work for me. I would need to blow dry […]
