    The Thread For Long-Time Members To Check In...

    Haven't been around in years and randomly decided to see what was happening in my old hangout tonight. I used to frequent the chat room back in the old days. I'm still kicking about. Life changed dramatically, and I am busy living it. I hope people are well, and I miss certain faces that are...

    E Harmony

    I tried to join eHarmony a few years ago and like Mishty, was rejected as well. I don't know if it's size related or my personality wasn't their "type", but it's not a place I would go to again. As Dro said, YMMV in most any online dating environment.

    Everyday Food Pics - Part II - keep snapping!! :D

    I'd been wanting to try baking German chocolate cake entirely from scratch for a while and finally did it last weekend. It would have been my grandfather's 81st birthday, so I used it as my excuse. It. Was. Amazing. Totally ruined for boxed mix forever.

    Dear Food

    I love these too. And it's bizarre how when our stomachs are uncooperative, it's one weird thing that is acceptable. Mine was always tuna sandwiches. Which sound good now. Dear Stomach, I know our relationship with food has been strained over the last eighteen-ish months. You want...

    What is making you SAD right now...

    Found out the end of last week one of my favorite coworkers was hospitalized last Tuesday with leukemia. He's only twenty-six, married, and has a six month old son. He'll be in for at least the next month, but fortunately it doesn't appear to be the chemo-resistant form of his disease. Of...

    Spandex shorts. Vests in junior high (I think?). Puffy painted shirts and sweatshirts in elementary school. Junior high and high school were also big on overalls and overall shorts for a few years. I was always pissed they didn't really make them in fat girl sizes. I was also one who wore...

    Chiming in at 34. I think I'll stop here for a while though. I'm not ready to get much closer to forty.

    What Are You Happy About Today? Part 2

    By this time five days from now, I will be halfway through a red eye flight to NYC for Christmas. I'm ridiculously excited! I've never been and the idea came spur of the moment. I have very hard feelings for the holiday and this is the first Christmas since my grandmother passed away. None...

    I haven't been online much in the last few days (work, know!), but had to pop on tonight to say a huge THANK YOU to whomever purchased the copy of the updated version of "Big Big Love" for me! I was confused at first, trying to remember what I'd ordered from Amazon for myself, but...

    Share your Amazon Wishlist - 2011 Edition!! :D

    These were fun to read. I was inspired to create my own list so I could have something to reference when shopping for myself, but have used it to let family and friends find suggestions for the holidays when they ask. So...against my better judgment (ha), I will post mine as well...

    What Are You Happy About Today? Part 2

    You have been known to almost live there, Rusty. I can understand the device's confusion! lol Hope you made it safely through the storm. After hearing what happened to friends' homes in Layton, I wasn't sorry to have moved to NSL.

    What is making you SAD right now...

    Sometime in the last few days, my give-a-damn got busted. Work is awesome, but I've lost my drive for school. I don't know if it's the class itself, the irritating and ignorant opinions of my fellow students, or just the general blahs, but I'm so over it. I don't want to finish this project...

    The Thread for Random Single Confessions Part ... I don't know what Part

    I'm so sorry for your loss, Nancy. Losing your grandmother is painful and in my experience, leaves a gap that can't be easily filled with another person. Remember to give yourself permission to grieve, be sad, and cry whenever the urge strikes. Heal gently. I'm sure you grandmother is...
