Where oh Where would we be without AlGore??

Well, there'd be a lot less to goof on, that's for sure....

Mr. Gore(who's picture I refuse to post due to obvious reasons), that inventor of the internet and subject of that epitome of shmaltz, Love Story, is now going to save the planet with his latest invention, The Karma(sp), a plug -in car.
Will it eerily resemble this ------->???

Hey, Al?? Want to really do something to conserve energy and preserve the planet? Why not downsize where you live, and cut YOUR home energy costs? And will Al and the Tipster be tooling around town in a Karma? Bet their ride of choice is something resembling the Escalade shown above, which while is a hybrid, is still a dreaded SUV.

Keep the fodder comin', Al Baby.

Style Points...

are to be awarded to McDonald's for getting the lexicon of my New England dead-on correct(, but why-oh-why is it so damn hard to get the accent down right?? I realize that the fact that it varies from New England state to NewEngland state, even from county to county makes a perfect translation a bitch, but sheesh, in this ad, the guys sound like a cross between and Aussie and a Scotsman!
Close, McD's, but no cigar(sounds like cig-ah).

I have been at this blogging business for 4 years now, and while the comments have been there, they are sporadic at best. It leads me to wonder if
anyone is reading this?
does anyone care?
I understand that my posting of songs is not exactly rave-worthy, but those songs are part of the wacky fabric that is me; hence, why I share them.
Regardless of whether my blog is liked or not, I will soldier on, because as I have stated before, it is my outlet, my grip on sanity, if you will. There is nothing like an enema for the brain.
But that being said, seeing as I am of the human varietal , and humans naturally crave... attention(?) ,feedback of the positive and negative kind would be most appreciated.
Just sayin. And if you choose to remain silent... then that's cool as well. I will just assume that my pithy posts(ha!!) are being consumed.

Oh, and?

FaceBook is the BEST internet invention ever!
*just sayin*

Last night's workout playlist

~Are You Gonna be My Girl?- Jet(if you can't shake your groovethang to this, then your clinically dead.)
~ Lips Like Sugar- Echo and the BunnyMen. Excellent tempo for raising that heart rate.
~Take on Me- Aha. See above.
~Careless Memories- DuranDuran.
~Is There Something I Should Know? - DuranDuran

Reasons why I am glad that it is officially autumn...

please, ladies, for the love of all that is just and decent in this world..STOP DRESSING LIKE THIS!!!!!! AAARRRGGHHHH, there is nothing worse than seeing a walking bakery stuffed into clothing that is meant for someone who is smaller! STOP IT! Dress for your size! And face it- if you are anything over a size 18, then your clothing choices just hopped off of the cool train and landed on Blah Street. As unfair as that may seem, it's a necessary truth. All of those rolls and bulges look a bazillion times worse than they already do when crammed into a spandex top , or a pair of hip huggers.
Please, accentuate your positives! DO NOT ACCENTUATE THE NEGATIVES!!!
You don't look sexy. You don't kicky, you don't look younger.
You look foolish.
You look pathetic.

If you want to wear clothes that are sexy , stylish, etc then hey, why not try to lose some of that unhealthy poundage? I mean, think about it; plus sized clothing is .... ugly. It has to be, because of all of the excess material needed to create each piece. I have lived the plus-sized ugly dream, and trust me; a kick ass sweaty 45 minute 3 mile walk is so worth being able to dress as I WANT to, not as I HAVE to.
Think about that.

*there. I feel so much better.*

Love what the Good Lord gave ya....

I do....

Oral Satisfaction...

can be found in a bottle of Wachusett Blueberry Ale. One right after work just hits the spot. May or may not have another later; I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
~ can 'The One' fall from the sky? Or can she/he be right in front of you the whole time without you even knowing it? Do you believe either of these statements? Do I ? Yeah, I guess I do; I'll let you know when/if it happens.
~ so I was told today that after I lose another 41 pounds(yes, I am down 41!!) that I'll be 'hot' and feel soooooooooooooo much better. I THINK it was meant as a compliment, but I was thinking "Ummmm....thanks? So, am I that horrendous now? And why do I have to wait to feel better; I already do!"I guess it was one of those scenarios where the person MEANT well, but it came out so wrong. I'm not letting it deter me- it just took me aback a bit. Honestly, I feel fabdabulous, and like I say: if you don't like the way I look, if it isn't pleasing to you, then look somewhere else. Break my heart. NOT.
~today is my W1D1 of the Couch to 5K Running Plan(go here to check it out). Did I like it? Nope. I LOVED IT! I just have to find a comfortable jogging pace; I am trying to run/jog too fast, which I guess is a common mistake with neophyte runners, but I think I found a very doable pace towards the end of today's workout.
~to expound on the aforementioned, I am getting into taking better care of myself. My stamina had increased so much since I have lost weight and started working out regularly; all/most of my clothes are now wayyyy too big or getting there, the 'small' of my back is...smaller(!) , more defined, and it really is cool to see everything 'lift' back to where nature intended as one loses weight and firms up. And that dreaded demon of women everywhere, the 'Muffin Top' ? I am so kicking his sorry ass out my door!
