It's days like this that I LOVE having this blog because I would never ever get the time to go through all of the skinny fly, skinny model story. It's "moving on the wires" as we say, but I really like how this MSNBC contributor wrote it up:
As I like to tell my skinny friends... any day now when we get that unexpected ice age... I'll be a survivor!!
And I want you to see this on smoking and dementia.. it's not the study I covered in Tuesday's health wrap, but rather how the same type of research has been covered before. And poorly, according to this editorial which is from 2000.
Check out this dahlia.. it's not trick photogrpahy. It really IS as big as our noon show producer Karen's head.
My word. They're from that festival the Swan Island Dahlia Company (located in Canby) help this past weekend. WOW.
And Tell-It-Like-It-Is-Rick writes about the squicky spiders: Speaking of spiders in the shower. The first year we lived at this address. I stepped into the shower, turned on the water, turned around and hanging down on a single web thread was a medium size black spider staring me in the face. I don't like spiders. When I was a 10 year old I was bitten by a spider. So, given the choice between fighting a spider or tiger, give me the tiger all the time.
To which I wrote him: Bet you wouldn't say that if you stepped on a tiger in the shower.
To which HE wrote: It all depends on if there was a spider in there, too.
And now I can promise you I will have this messed up visual running through my head the next time I peel back that shower curtain.
Blog buddy Joe says: Come on Steph! Those spiders are probably just there just to take a shower! Personal hygiene is important to them too! :)
LOL. Yup, they're there because they like my fancy shampoo. I'm onto them!!
