Hi, The point (if there is a point) of this blog is to post liner notes and playlists of mix CDs originating from moi and hopefully fanning out into a chain of mix CDs. If you get a CD from me, make me and a friend one, and email me some liner notes and I'll post them. Then your friend should make you and someone else a mix CD etc etc. Maybe it will work PS If you want to be on my knit list, let me know what you want and I'll see what I can do!

That's me. My blogpal Christa has bravely announced to the world she is on a diet, so I think it's time I did the same. I need to join the Y as well so I can play nerf-ball in the pool with Michael, and I suppose lift some weights or something.

I can actually summon up a lot of will-power to lose weight but I need a little trigger of some kind. Last time I lost weight, I got started because an extremely attractive man made a dead serious pass at me, and that kept me going for ages.

It's hard to motivate myself being a single mother because I basically don't have too much of a social life and NIL sex life, and I can't really figure out how to change that (unless I turn into an incestuous pedophile). So food is my main sensual outlet right now.

My energy level is much higher than my son's, so pyschologically speaking, it's a lot easier to be fat and passive than it is to lose weight and have this energy with nowhere to go, so it's definitely a double edged sword to lose weight. But I need to do it! It's such a fucking pain but I guess part of being a grown-up.

So I'm enjoying my last cup of coffee with half-and-half right now. Expect crankiness, bitchiness and grumpiness in the next few months.

And I know this is probably the wrong time, but this is the dog's bollocks (especially French Silk).

Have you heard of the Pumperipple Diet? Everyone is doing it.

You know, the problem with the Pumperipple diet is once you start pumperippling, it's really hard to stop.

good luck, marianne!

if you come across a good low-calorie, low-fat coffee creamer, do let me know. i haven't had coffee since the diet started on monday! (not because it's forbidden --coffee, that is... though *cream* is -- but because i'm afraid it's going to make me hungrier than i really am. does that make sense?)

that paragraph, btw, used some of the most creative punctuation i've ever seen.

heh. that's the most I've seen that word used since I was living at home and had the Sunday bagel duty (ie, they gave me an old car, so I had to do all the errands. seemed like a fair trade to me)
