Flying Out Again Today & Back on Halloween

I have been SO busy flying (just started my 41st year!), PLUS I had to go to DFW for recurrent training (we have to go thru it every year for the FAA to keep up our flying credentials) (evacuating airplanes, opening window exits, putting out fires, reviewing medical proceedures, working defibrilators & doing mmr/ccc, etc). It is grueling & exhausting & boring & we all dread it. Then I had to fly again the next 2 days... Shit man, I am pooped.

I am staying in bed all day today, catching up on my email & favorite blogs.... ah ecstacy! That is until I have to get up & go to my favorite Weight Watchers meeting... which I shall be up 1 or 2 lbs because i ate butter popcorn at the movies yesterday (The Secret Life of Bees - great! And W - also great) AND Chinese food afterwards. Man it is SO hard to fight weight gain. I have the propensity to be a giant blimp. Crap.

God I hope Obama wins. I don't trust middle America, tho. They're all so stupid. (and I of course am just such a Mensa, - HA!....... (NOT.)

I can't find my witches hat & cape for halloween... I'm flying back from Lax that day & always cause quite a stir as I pull my wheels thru the terminal with that big ole pointy hat (with feathers around the edges) & black cape flying thru the breeze. I even have a short broom to go with my ensemble. Now, where did I put that damn costume???

Movies & Butter Popcorn, Yea!

Ye Gads, it snowed in Jersey yesterday! DANG. Big ole flakes fallin' down with the pouring rain. So weird. And freezing cold! I am not ready.

So, went to the movies... Saw 'The Secret Life of Bees' which was wonderful, don't know why it didn't get better reviews. And 'W' which was also really good, I was surprised I liked it. When I see movies of Texas it tugs at my heartstrings since I grew up there. Good thing I escaped.

We have a website for our Texas high school 60's grads, but right now most everyone is talkin trash about Obama & voting for McCain. So scarey. Middle America is so stupid. Really. There are so many people that think Pallin is "just darling" & Obama is a muslim/terrorist. Give me a fuckin' break, it's enough to make you hurl.

Can't wait for tue to come, God I hope Obama wins.

A Sad Situation

Went to Delaware to see an ex-girlfriend of Doris' who has come down with Lou Gerhig's Disease. It is terrible. She can't walk, she can't talk, she can't eat - she chokes on all food, she constantly drools, & she cries all the time. (totally understandable.) There is no cure & it supposedly only gets worse. Now THAT's depressing.

This is a woman who used to be fat, a great cook, & a food addict. Between 200-300lbs. When she 1st lost her motor skills we thought she had a stroke from her obesity & bad eating habits. It is so scary.

I am grateful I am working to get a grip on my weight thru WW & all my friends there. I go for weigh-in today & fear I am up because I did eat a lot of crap on that trip since it was so stressful. Stress eating, a big downfall.

I really don't want to gain back weight I've lost & have a stroke from bad eating habits. This woman now has a feeding tube thru her stomach & feels so resentful she can't eat any of the Delicious food she smells & sees her friends eating. (That sounds a little too familiar - I am always resentful of Doris eating ice cream & Hydrox cookies, & feel she is sabotaging me... etc.)

I am so grateful Doris & I are still healthy & well.
Thankyou God.

Transfer to

I am Hating moving my dumb ole blog which I hardly ever write in anyway.
I am so LAME on computers in the first place.
I can't make the letters bigger.
I miss my old font.
(I am trying them all out here..)
Honestly, I can never read all of your blogs that regularly use blogspot because the print is so small.
Which brings up another thing - nobody's blog transfered here on the list, I guess I'll have to start it all over again, (the favorite blog list, I mean.)
Hey, at least the last font was dark & heavy.
Guess I choose this one, 'verdana' - at least I THINK that's what it is, the print in the font choice is SO SMALL I can barely see it.
Also I liked having a purple & lavender blog at AOL. This pink is the only one I could find on the 'blog choice menu.'
oh, What the hell eVER.

I don't write that much anymore anyway.
Life is too stressful right now.
Geesh, like I need this stupid blog transfer drama bullshit right now.
Dumbass AOL.
