I am due at office soon, but it was one of my free Wednesday morning days so I was home all morning. I did go to my personal trainer at 6 this morning, but thereafter, snugly ensconced in my warm house, clothed in multilayers except for feet and legs which the pantyhose are not satisfactorily […]

It never ceases to amaze me. The quantities i am capable of consuming, I mean. It is outrageous. I just have a bottomless pit. The only nonnutritive food I had today was a half cup of Arctic Zero, which was a negligible 37 calories. I ended up eating lunch at 2 since i had to […]

Would a movie called “Set Point” garner as much interest as “Match Point” did? Probably, if Woody Allen were the director. Although he has long ago fallen from his pedestal along with from grace as far as I am concerned. No longer have I felt compelled to run out to see his latest movie, nor […]

I ended up sleeping in big time while cb dropped Max at the train station. Slept till almost ten. cb was worried about my driving downtown with slick roads. Meanwhile, the snow here has long ceased, but due to the sub freezing temps (I guess), Mollie is home because of closure of Pgh Public Schools. […]
