Feelin’ Randy

I’m a sucker for British television mysteries like Midsomer Murders and British mystery novels by Elizabeth George and Minette Walters (but not Agatha Christie). The secrets are darker, the countryside is greener, and the language is peppered with phrases like “Bloody Hell!” and “Inn’t it?” Plus naughty people are occasionally described as randy (having a coarse manner;... read more

That’s Fit: Secret Lives of Women

Chalk this up to the universe teaching me a lesson about being closed-minded. I wouldn’t have voluntarily watched “Secret Lives of Women,” but I got an advance screener of tonight’s episode so I could write about it for That’s Fit. And I was surprised.

After seeing Flogging Molly in relentless and awesome rain (see video below), I dug into a pulled pork sandwich from the Salt Lick BBQ stand: a pile of tasty pork with very lightly dressed shredded cabbage and a small squirt of BBQ sauce. The bun acted as a... read more

Happy Anniversary to Me!

Exactly two years ago today, I went to my first CrossFit Bootcamp workout. Suffice it to say, it was a life-changing event. On my one-year anniversary last year, I threw down some major goals for 2008-2009: pullup a handstand jumping on the tall box How did I do against them? Meh. Box jumps are conquered and now much-adored, which is pretty great. And if I’m well-rested, well-fed, and in a... read more
