Happily Ever After

May 31, 2010

This post is random but I wanted to write about it. I saw two wonderful movies this weekend. Shrek Ever After and Letters to Juliet. Both ended, of course, predictably, happily ever after. Why shouldn’t it? It was written that way. I thought most people like happy endings. I know I do, and I plan […]

What I discovered is that it KILLED my shoulders, gave me a total body workout, got my heart pumping harder than a sprint on the treadmill, and also […]

I Love My Salt Grinder

May 24, 2010

While traveling to Florida this past week, my salt grinder almost got confiscated at security during bag check. I would have been super sad if they took it from me. What did they think was gonna happen? I was gonna grind salt into the pilots eyes and then hijack the plane? Anyway, I plead my […]
