Do You Still Read Books? I Mean Actual Books?

Do You Work Out So You Can Drink More?

My first reaction is to poo poo the idea of working out just so we can justify more drinks.  And then I remember I hit the treadmill for 40 minutes yesterday only to cancel out the benefits with wings and drinks at happy hour last night.

Cowboys Match Comeback Record

A Girl Who Doesn’t Eat Birthday Cake, And Other Random Thoughts

Well here it is...my birthday, and the reason 9 and 17 are my favorite numbers.

Birthdays are good excuses to measure progress and set new goals I think, kind of like New Year's Eve only I'm the only one who's doing it today.  Unless you're a Virgo too, and in that case you're probably making your own thoughtful list, you independent, analytical, reliable, observant, perfectionst, you.  Happy Birthday to you.
