Random Thoughts

Randomness as it occurs to me

I had some requests for more "Food Porn"  so I'm adding it as a new feature.  I'll post pictures of anything I happen to be obsessing about.  Feel free to make requests or send me your FP ideas and pics so I can feature them as well.  I'm still thinking about the ice cream Sundaes my family made last night, so here is


Gail said I looked svelte...wow, not usually an adjective to describe me, thanks!

A male Starling was hopping around on our deck rail with some sticks and grass in his mouth this morning.  How cute -it's nest building season!  My husband was watching him with the sticks , he went behind the BBQ and came back without the sticks...uh, oh...where did the sticks go?  Bert opens the grill top and it is FULL of sticks and grass!  This guy has been busy and no, you can't build a nest in our grill-this is a bad idea on so many levels. 

How sad is it that a male co-worker has to apologize in advance before they pay you a compliment?    Here is what happened:  a group of us were hanging out and chatting, when said co-worker "disclaimered" his weight loss compliment with "how can I say this nicely...um, you look thinner?"  Wow, why would you apologize for saying something nice like that?  Several men then piped in and said in unison, "We've had girls say  'I suppose you thought I was fat before!' so we are always real careful"  Ah jeez,  silly young girls!  Got a little tip for you-knock it off and stop ruining it for the rest of us!  When a man pays you a compliment, just say "thank you" and move on. Anything else is just annoying and will guarantee he won't make that mistake again!  Chances are pretty good there is no hidden agenda. (he's not female, no matter how much you want him to be)  For the record, I will never, EVER give anyone a bad time for saying something nice to me...EVER!


As far as my weight loss program goes, still maintaining my current loss, so all is well with the world.  Went for a nice brisk walk with my friend Cynthia this morning-felt great!
