Happy Sunday!

Well, I could share a card with you...but I don't like how it turned I don't HAVE to share it! Nah, nah!

Instead I thought I'd share a couple non-stamp related things. One is to tell you that I've decided it's time for me to do something about my weight (again). And to that end, I will probably start a weight loss blog here soon and will place a link to it from here. So if that interests you (if you like seeing me in pain and starving! LOL!) then you can visit that blog as well. I plan on doing Weight Watchers. It's worked for me in the past. I've followed the diet plan on my own in the past but didn't attend meetings. This time I'm going to attend the meetings and my neighbor is joining with hopefully those will both be positive aspects.

Anyhow...when I got this email from my aunt today I laughed and laughed. Maybe it's just SO funny to me because I'm starting to think about the diet mentality...but hopefully you'll enjoy it too. Without further's some humor for your amusement!


Yesterday I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for Athena, the wonder dog , at Wal-Mart and was about to check out. A woman behind me asked if I had a dog. On impulse, I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, and that I was starting the Purina Diet again.

Although I probably shouldn't, because I'd ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me.

I told her no; I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter's ass and a car hit us both.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was laughing so hard!

WAL-MART won't let me shop there anymore!!!

WW is a great way to lose weight. The meetings are really key! I used to work there with my mom. I love the Purina Diet story! Sounds exactly like something Zach would do.
