new email account

I am sending this from my new e-mail address just for fun.

I sent an e-mail from my new g-mail, it didn’t post, so I must have to do something to approve it? I don’t remember.

why rnt my emails posting? I have been trying to send e-mails so I can post to my blog and it has not been working. I think something may be wrong with the website since none of the e-mails I sent are showing up. I will continue to send them since at least that way I can post my thoughts when I get home.

Just found out Stitch will not be home in time for me to go to Allsport, that ruined my mood, I will be fat forever. OK, maybe not FAT, but 20 pounds heavier than I should be, which in time will ruin my health and I will be cranky and hard to be around.

Some of the e-mails made it through. Just the last one didn’t, but I posted it here, so it is not lost. Maybe it will show up tonight. I don’t feel like sending a message to google, I will just keep trying and see what happens.

Sunday headache

This morning I got up to go out in service, but started feeling bad so I laid back down, then M called and I told her I wasn’t feeling well she was “I wish you had told me”, so I started to feel like a bad friend, so I got dressed and went out, but she had already left and so I didn’t get to work with her. I didn’t get to talk to anybody. But had an ok time, but by the time I got home, I had a headache and was feeling like I wanted to throw up. I went to the meeting anyway, Gwen drove me, then she drove me home early cause I wasn’t feeling any better. I am now, I had some caffeine.

Tigger just asked if he could download an album from the Frey with Pepsi points. I shouldn’t have told him we had 80 Pepsi points.

Gwen and I went to Ron’s. We got ice cream for ourselves and Stitch and Tigger, Fred wasn’t around, now Tigger wants to go driving. I really don’t, my head is STILL killing me.

Took Tigger driving, he just wanted to drive around the block since he hadn’t driven in ‘like two months’, so I was cool with that. Then I laid down and fell asleep, with my contacts in again! Now they are out so everything is blurry. Sometimes that is a good thing.

Like I told someone, tea with Splenda will cure almost anything. It took care of my tummy. Didn’t take care of my smelly pits, neither did the powder so when I finish here I will have to go wash before bed. I have decided I am going to read my Jack London, just because I have nothing else to read tomorrow and they are short.

I was up way too late last night.

I finished Descent into Hell, then was looking at the computer and was sure I had a book but it wasn’t on my shelf, so i started looking for it, found it under my bed covered in dust and cobwebs, then started reading it. So I was up way to late and now am paying for it.

Today I went to the book study, went to lunch and shopping with M., took the boys to the pool while I worked out (I bought new exercise bras, I had to try them out). Now I am falling asleep and my head is killing me.

So I fell asleep with my contacts in. When I got up, cause Tigger was knocking on my door, they were cloudy and I couldn’t see. I went to rinse them off, and then I couldn’t get the right one in. I also now have a bunch of Pepsi points to enter so I will do that now before I hit the sack.

Hi there

Either the spinach or the tomatoes are giving me a stomach ache. I will find out which on Monday. Or this weekend. Right now I am going to get some ice cream. I haven’t been able to get into my AOL account so I created another G-Mail account for the things I was sending to my AOL account.

Now I have to go get ice cream.

Oh, I forgot to say. I got picked to review a book on LibraryThing. I am so excited, and nervous. But I have been reviewing books on Shelfari so I am getting the hang of things. I posted a comment to Redlady, now I am going to post on her blog.

where’s my tumtum

I got a response from the woman who bought the doll, the chair was broken. I didn’t pack it securely enough. Oh well. I am not selling the others on E-Bay, it cost me money. I will list them on Craigs List when I get home. I keep meaning to but forgetting to. I really need to go now. It is lunch time and I am tired and unhappy.

My stomach is back on its roller coaster ride. I wonder if it is the Kashi bars, after all, they do have wheat and apple in them. Ok, now I have forgotten what else I wanted to say and now I have to go.

Got a cookie and a beer on the way home. That is my preferred snack since the popcorn the other day made me sick. Funny how cookies and beer don’t. You would think beer would aggravate an upset tummy. I laid down when I got home and fell asleep and so I missed dinner. It was hot dogs and beans, yum. So when I got up I made a sandwich: on a hamburger roll I put margarine, cinnamon honey and Habanero cheese. Now that was good!

>M sent this to me:

I have to share this with you.

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.

(Like THAT makes sense.)

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman’s genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.

(Do they look different reversed?)

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. This also applies to undertakers. The sex organs of the deceased must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.

(A brick?)

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.

(Much worse than ‘going blind!’)

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time
Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.

(Let’s just think for a minute; is there any job anywhere else in the world that even comes close to this?)

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands.
The husband’s illicit lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.

(Ah! Justice!)

Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England – but only in tropical fish stores.

(But of course!)

In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the act.

(Makes one shudder at the thought.)

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time.

(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?)

In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with one exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine only ‘in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises.’

(Is this a great country or what?
Well, not as great as Guam!)

Banging your head against a wall
uses 150 calories an hour.

(Who volunteers for these tests?)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

(Is that why Flipper was always smiling?)

The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated. (From drinking little bottles of???)

(Did our government pay for this research??)

Butterflies taste with their feet.

(Ah, geez.)

An ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain.

(I know some people like that.)

Starfish don’t have brains.

(I know some people like that, too.)

And, the best for last?
Turtles can breathe through their butts.

(And I thought I had bad breath in the morning!)

No better today

My stomach bug and headache seem to come and go. I thought I was over it because I had an almost normal bowel movement. Any more detail would be TMI! Anyway, I have to get going, I just wanted to make sure I got this done since I am trying not miss any more days posting.

Period is due this weekend or sooner. Last month it came sooner. Today I started “Whistling in the Dark” by Lesley Kagen. It has gripped my attention. I am going to read some more in it as soon as I am done here.

finders keepers

When I was listing my books on Amazon to sell, I found my purple bookmark in the shape of a flower with the heart in the middle. So now I have 3 really cool bookmarks. I don’t have three books to read though. I mean I do, but I don’t.

its getting worse

I am feeling worse and worse as the day goes on. I am doing my best to make it to 4:30 or at least 4:00. I was feeling really light headed before lunch and that has sort of passed. I have eaten, drank milk, taken Tylenol® and used my inhaler. I can’t go to bed when I get home because I have to get a envelope for a book I sold on Amazon. I also have to get a book for a book club read. I have to go now.

Before I went to get the envelope, I checked my e-mail, and I had sold another one. So I bought 2 envelopes and will mail them tomorrow. Before I left work I remembered that there is a bookstore in GCT, so I stopped there and got “A Descent Into Hell” by Kathryn Casey. She is a new true crime author, well, new to me.

Em made chicken and rice pilaf, not for me, but it is good for upset stomach so it was for me! The dress and top she ordered came today, she is really pleased with them. We have tickets for Top of the Rock and I made reservations at Tavern on the Green. I think I may have already said this. It is going to be a great day.

Well, I have updated my list of books read. I need to go to bed now since it is midnight and I have a headache.


Yesterday, I did not turn on my computer at all. After the meeting, Em and I went to Danbury, she is looking for navy blue capris to wear to Manhattan. She didn’t find any. We did find these cool bags at Eddie Bauer though. Em’s is blue and mine is burgundy. It has bunches of pockets and stuff to carry things. Saturday we went to Macy’s cause Em saw that they were having an online Lancôme sale. Well, they were also having it at the store, so she got makeup and I got eyeliner and we got 2 free gifts. I am not wearing the eye shadow today, because I overslept and didn’t have time. Tomorrow I will have to try harder.



Bella >^..^<

I am so disgusted, I am wearing a top that I used to look cute in, and now I look fat in it. I suppose I should have waited to wear it, but for some reason I just put it on cause I was wearing my black pants. I looked in the mirror at work and went yuk! More incentive to stay on track until I lose the weight.

Well, I was eating well today, then I started to eat my popcorn and I had a really bad tummy ache. Then I had to go to the bathroom. I managed to get all the way home before the really bad stuff came out, then I took my imodium and got in bed. Then Gwen called me for dinner, so I put my nightgown and robe on, went upstairs and had a hamburger, comfort food. And got grease on my nightgown and robe. So when I came back downstairs I put them both in the hamper. Now I am just sitting on my bed wrapped up in my soft fleece blankets. I wish there was a way I could lie down and type.

Yesterday I was wearing my Gap jeans. They are tight, but I was able to get them on.

I have already done a lot today, for me that is, I ate breakfast, went to Lily’s, forgot to stop at the library and put a load of clothes in the washer, as soon as it is done, I am hanging it up and then making some eggs cause I am hungry again! Well it is 11:00 and cereal never stays with me long. I finished Blue Diary, finally! I have to write a review, I have a lot to say about it. I thought it was a very good book. I listened to a little bit of Mortal Fear on my computer, I will finish listening to it on my MP3 player. The last time I tried listening to a book, it expired and I never got it from the library to read it, I just lost interest in it. My weight is up from last week, but it may be down before I weigh in, since it is down from yesterday. I will just be so careful today, which will be hard since I am going to a barbecue today. I will just have to do my best. Em wants to go shopping so we will probably leave early. And I just found out I have hall cleaning, so I will have to do that after I hang up my clothes and eat.

Well, I had to spin my clothes out again. So I didn’t get to the hall. I also didn’t know what time the barbecue was. I found out, I hung my clothes up. I brought the dry clothes in my room and threw them on my bed, I will take care of them later. My GPS wouldn’t turn on when I left for the barbecue so I was driving down the street looking for the road her house is on and didn’t know if I had passed it or not, so I turned off and around, I finally got the GPS on and put the wrong street in! By this time, Em was texting me, “Are you lost?” If I don’t use my GPS for a long time, it won’t turn on when I need it. Since I know this, I should turn it on the day before I need it. But I never remember this. Anyway, Em and I left the barbecue early, we weren’t having a good time, the food was awful and not a very good variety, and nothing to do, just sit around and talk, Stitch was getting antsy with the people and Gwen was still not feeling well. So we went home, Em and I went to Allsport, then the mall. We got makeup and I got a skirt at, duh, can’t remember, it was $10 originally $40. Now it is 1:30 am so I should get to bed, but before I do, watched the new show on BBC America called Primeval. Had a scary centipede on it, about 8 feet long and poisonous.
