A little random, a little ridiculous

Random and shallow thoughts after a day of thought-provoking, post-election conversations.

Hallelujah! Susan Lucci finally got booted off Dancing With The Stars. I was so afraid it was going to be Cody and that would just be wrong.

Just when we thought annoying Eddie was gone from Top Design, he's back to "help" one of the three finalists. Seriously, Eddie. I think I hear Martha calling you.

Lest you think all I do is watch reality TV, I have to tell you I'm reading the book, The Shack by William P. Young. It's a quick read but good so far. Euguene Peterson describes it this way: "When the imagination of a writer and the passion of a theologian cross-fertilize".

I'd like to cross-fertilize a cookie and a carrot. All the taste and texture of a cookie, and the low calorie, healthy of the carrot. Especially the low cal part.

I'm about to give up on weight loss. It seems so impossible. I know it's just basic math- take in fewer calories than you expend. But I'd so rather have the cookie over the carrot stick.

Question of the day: Will there ever be financial life after paying for college?

I would like to take the cross-fertilization even farther and try combining a couch with a treadmill. You know, something that you sit on that causes you to burn calories! Then you could watch dancing with the stars while breaking a sweat!

Right on Angela! Have you seen those pictures of the newest gym fad where all the ladies are just posing comfortably on a special jiggle table of some sort, confident that they're losing weight as they converse? I'd like to do that!!

I'm all for the calorie burning couch!!! Better yet, how about burning calories while I sleep? Then I won't have to disturb my couch-potatoe time.
