This Is Getting Ridiculous

I have no idea what my problem is. I have lost my blogjo (it's like mojo but with a keyboard). I am amazed to say that I have 2149 followers and I'm pretty sure 14 of those are actual people who read my stuff. I have been Freshly Pressed twice. I have a good gig …

Someone Fat Happened, Year Two

It's been a year, probably, almost...in the vicinity of a year since my first post here. I haven't lost a pound but I am a better writer than I was a year ago. This list isn't of New Year's Resolutions because I never keep Resolutions unless it is the classic "do more crosswords" Resolution that …

What Can I Doooo???

I couldn't think of anything to write yesterday. In a few months, I will turn 48 which is two years away from 50. I went to a good university so I can do math just like that, in my head...Bam! 48 + 2 = 50.  Yeah, I did that. I looked on-line for lists of …

All the Great Weekends End with a Monday.

Great Weekend This past weekend my college buddy Janet, or Jane as I call her, came to visit me from the Bay Area. Janet and I went to Colgate together and saw each other at our last reunion, which you can read about here and here. Oh and here. Wait a minute, and here, too. …

Voilà la classe française dans la prison!

This past Friday was my second trip to juvie to teach French. My fingerprints cleared the FBI and I have my own security badge. AND the photo is really cute! After the first class I was talking to K. the coordinator and Rev. Craig. I asked them if I had to leave the badge at …

Reunion 2012: Oh Won’t You Stay Just a Little Bit Longer

Here are the latest updates: Kim, the same Kim who told me approximately what time I departed the tents Friday night, put a link to this article on the dangers of Clear Care in the comments section yesterday. Quote: Hydrogen peroxide will cause a caustic burn if it gets in the eyes, confirmed Dr. Thomas …

Reunion 2012: Fairest Theme of All Our Lays

For you non-Red Raiders, this blog's title is an actual line from the Colgate Alma Mater composed in 1902. And known for making incoming freshman (freshpeople, freshpersons) snicker every September. Where did I leave off? Early on Friday night I had discussions that I clearly remember. I remember telling Eric, that he has grown into …

Reunion 2012: Getting There is Half the Fun

I wasn't going to attend my 25th Reunion because the airfare from Oregon to Syracuse, NY is around $800 and I don't have $800 to spend for weekend airfare. My pal and fellow Cake, Kitty came to the rescue with miles and booked me a Thursday  flight to Philly, where I would stay with her …

Reunion 2012: Colgate, Alma Mater

I am back from my 25th Colgate Reunion. I’m physically back, my voice and brain may take another couple of days. I’m back to being the oldest person in my office. Back where they don’t know me as a screaming, dancing lunatic. I will be doing plenty of posts this week on everyone I saw …

What My Facebook Page Says to Me

It’s Maggie’s World, They Just Live In It

I'm going to be 47 and I need to lose 30 pounds. Now I'm 47 and need to lose 20 pounds so I'm trending in the right direction. I started this blog to document my weight loss journey but as it turns out, dieting isn't that interesting. I think it would be if I had …
