Moving on up...

I apologize for the inconvenience but this little ol' blog is a movin'. Join me here at my new penthouse in the sky!

I've been pondering, what should be the content of this blog? Many seem to have a central theme, such as Smitten is about cooking and newly married life (mostly cooking - Deb is totally killing me with her pics! ). Dooce is about her life with family and making a living off of blogging.

So, what is a nutcase like me supposed to entertain you with? I think my inability to be a size two will be one of the prominent threads. See, I use to be a size 22 (GASP!) and in 2003, I decided to do something about it. I went to Weight Watchers (Double GASP!!) and lost quite a bit of weight, achieving the slimming size of a 12/14. I was able to keep most of the weight off until this last year, when I started to eat all the awful things that love to make their home on my thighs. Also, I feel that "exercise" is a pseudo-four letter word. Hopefully, by being honest to you, my lone reader I will be able to lose more weight and achieve a sense of accomplishment in being healthy. And humorous.

The only downfall with writing about my struggles with weight is that all the supermodels that discover this blog won't be able to relate.

My Cat, the Supermodel

My cat enjoys rolling around on the floor more than I do. Does that sound wrong? I think not!

Bring in the Polar Bears...

And the penguins! I think that work environments are kept at a temperature below freezing so that I don't fall asleep on my keyboard. Though, that wouldn't be comfortable, I'd drool and have QWERTY imprinted across my forehead.

Bonus: The blue shade of my fingernails is quite fetching.

I've decided to join the race...

I've been living vicariously through MANY other bloggers. It's a vicious addiction that causes me to refresh my favorite blogs OVER and OVER again in the span of eight hours. Of course I never, ever, read blogs while working!

But, I think blogging is a good thing. It allows me to have insight into the lives of people I've never met or even thought may have existed outside of my little world. Some people are so huge in the blogging world that they are superstars and make me swoon at the thought of meeting them in real life. Every time one of elite personally responds to one of my inane comments, I feel like I did when I got my first Little Pony Doll - All giddy and special.

Blogging encourages people to read and write. Most posts are less than 500 words but usually they are concise, witty, insightful, humorous and make me ponder. It's a new form of communication, people opening up their diaries for the rest of us to read and for us to realize that our lives suck or those people lie really well.

So, yes, I've succumbed...I'm a blogger.
