You got your Bile Beans in my Obesity Soap!...

Weight Watchers sponsored a panel discussion on health and weight loss last month at the Library of Congress. Featured were some pretty awesome vintage posters. There's an article about this on the NPR blog.

Obviously weight loss concerns and oddball diet solutions are nothing new. I just love these posters shown on the blog.

And if none of these tickles your fancy, how about some nice tape worms? I found this ad here.

Wow! Easy to swallow and no ill effects.

Exercise and healthy eating are sounding better and better.

Joanie Coyote and Stuff

I started a new blog that has more to do with comedy and getting back into stand-up. I have a feeling this one's going to be a lot easier to keep up with since it's on my mind much of the day. Check it out here and let me know what you think.

The Dress-Yes, THAT dress!

The Wedding Dress. Not mine! My best friend's. Remember this post ? Well, I finally got some pictures. I made this from scratch basically. Used a commercial pattern to make sure I got the grain right and all that but in the end there was just a sliver of the tissue left. Wow, it was hard but turned out so beautifully.

We were finishing it up until the last moment. This is my daughter and me and the other bridesmaid, Sandi, putting on the finishing touches.

The wedding was amazing. And she's so beautiful anyway. This is how long ago it happened. Last Sunday I was at this same friend's baby shower. She's due in a few weeks. Maybe I'll put up pictures of the baby shower some time next year. Hah!

New Years Mash Up

I'm off to my very pregnant best friend's house to have a very low-key New Years celebration. Can't wait. I'm looking forward to next year. I think I'm starting to get my groove back and the future looks promising. I'll leave you with DJ Earworm's always fabulous end of the year Pop Music Mash Up. Enjoy, be safe, and here's to living 2011 fabulously.

Tomorrow is the last day of my Everyday in December Challenge. It's been great. I'm not an everyday of anything type of gal and it made me dig deep some days and get in there even when I didn't want to. Thank you to anyone who has been paying attention. I love you all. Hope your New Year is Fabulous!!!

Positive New Years Resolutions

I saw a great post today on Design For Mankind. Instead of thinking of all the things you're not doing well enough, make a list of things you've done well and want to keep doing.

Here are mine.
1. Keep blogging at least every week.
2. Continue to perform and write comedy. It's coming back, Baby!.
3. You have a great family and wonderful friends. Cherish this.
4. Continue using your creativity and finding ways to get paid for it. That really is the best way to live.

I'll think of more but I'm trying to get this done before midnight. Ha.

I'm crocheting a ruffle scarf. Almost done. I'll take a picture of me wearing it when it's finished.
