Estelle Getty died today. She was always my favorite Golden Girl, I think. Innocent, yet feisty enough to hold her own. It made me sad to hear of her passing. I loved that show, and always associated it with my grandmother; there were bits and pieces of her in every character.

And who could forget these great words, penned by Andrew Gold?

“Thank you for being a friend
We’ve traveled down the road and
back again

Your heart is true, you’re a pal and a
confidante…”


Tell me – who among you knows the next verse?

~~~

I thought so.

By the way, forgive me if this offends, but dudes and dudettes: I have lost EIGHT FRICKIN’ POUNDS!!!! Can I hear an ‘amen’????

There’s something about the Diet-That’s-Not-A-Diet that works. Maybe it’s the supplements, maybe its the cran-water – maybe it’s just not eating so danged much. But I feel good in terms of the former snugness of my garments. And even better, I feel really good inside – like HEALTHY kind of good. Like I’m living the way God made me to live. Like I’m taking good care of myself.

Seriously, mentally, physically and spiritually, I feel more alive and like myself than I have in a long time. I told someone today that trying to alter my eating habits through this “Fat Flush” thing was the best decision I’d made since I came to work for PCC.

Amen.
