Pimping Out

Today
I normally don't do this sort of thing here, but I have to say, this guest post I wrote, Through the Uprights: What Running Means to a Fat Girl, is one of my favorite posts I've ever written. If you're so inclined, give it a read, and share it with your runner and/or overweight friends.

Thanks, dolls!

 I don't even know where I am anymore, but it seem to be pretty damn awesome.

Have you guys seen this? I've seen it all over my reader in the past few days, and I hadn't bothered to watch it until just now. It made me cry, in a good way.

Seriously, watch. NOW.


If my video doesn't work, go to YouTube and look up Katie Makkai - Pretty.

Question

Today
From My Thunder Thighs (where you should totally go to join the discussion):  Are there any weight loss diets that do *not* fall under the category of “fad diet”?

Thought of the Day

Red Box
One day, life will be better. Perhaps even tomorrow.

Facts of Food and Life

Today

1. I'm not really a fan of mango. Bleck. But fresh pineapple is about 8293742938 times better than canned pineapple.

2. Even if you use a recipe, homemade sesame chicken is nothing like restaurant sesame chicken.

3. Diet Dr. Pepper makes me happy.

4. I had a dream about Twilight last night, like the movie was playing in my head. I have not read the book, nor have I seen the movie, but rest assured, the dream was nothing like either of them.

5. Today I am doing the work of 1) a receptionist, 2) an editor, and 3) a professional associate (WTF-ever that means--it's like a junior consultant in my company). Are any of these my actual job? Don't be ridiculous.

6. I'm done with headaches now, kthxbye.

Baby Naming . . . Again

Today
A while back I posted a poll asking your opinion of our list of baby names. Hooray for polls!

Well, now we know Baby Dew is most likely a girl, and we've fairly settled on the first name of Mallory.

However, on the middle name . . . not so settled. Every time I say, "What about Mallory _____ ?" Steve says, "I need to look at the list again" (at which point I repeat to him the entire list from memory, and then he goes back to not talking about it).

So anyway, give me more opinions*. 

*I'm still not really going to let you all name my baby, but it's fun to ask.

Help Me Name My Baby!

Today
Okay, so I'm not really going to let my f'list name my baby. But gaging public opinion is fun, and we're having trouble narrowing it down more than this, so I want you all to chime in on our name shortlist. And also, polls are just mucho fun for all involved.

Some of these names are family names or have other sentimental value (which is why a few of the choices may seem weird), but most of them are just names we like. Names that have slashes are <Proper Name/Nickname>.

So vote for all you like, and make some suggestions of your own!
