Oh, my. Thanks to The Great Fitness Experiment for her always-interesting blog and for posting this incredibly, awesomely horrible but awesome but horrible image today.“If sugar can fill that hollow feeling, I’m all for it.” I’m not 100% sure of many things, but I can say with 100% confidence that sugar will in no way fill that “hollow feeling,” physical, emotional, or... read more

First O’ The Month Assessment = Angie

The last time I did Angie (April 1,. 2009), I finished in 26:11.

Punk Rock Kitty: A Story In Photos

Our 19-year-old cat Sesame passed in her sleep yesterday. I hope you don’t mind my indulgence in some stories and photos of the punk rock zombie kitty. “I think I should get a cat,” Dave said to me one day about 17 years ago. “I think it would be good for me.” He wanted a kitten, but the sneaky little old ladies at the Marin Humane Society told him it wasn’t... read more

Health Warning on Photoshopped Images?

I think this is pretty neato! PARIS (Reuters) – French politicians want to stamp a “health warning” on photographs of models that are altered in order to make them more appealing; part of a campaign against eating disorders.

It’s our day to sleep late, do laundry, cook for the week, taunt the cat about being a skinny-ass Zombie beast, read books, take a nap, sit in the... read more
