Charmed and dangerous

I hauled my bitter, junk-in-the-trunk self back to the gym this week, for the first time in at least five years. I figure if I keep busy and glare at enough sweaty, grunting men in tank tops, my broken heart will eventually mend.

Life begins at 40, baby (squeeze, breathe, relax, and feel the sarcasm).

I'm sending you ladybugs...lots and lots of ladybugs....

I just dragged my sorry ass back to the gym a few weeks ago. That eliptical machine is trying to kill me. I comfort myself by thinking I'll be a hot babe someday.

And I have to go to a wedding tonight. Alone. :)

The images of sweaty grunting men just isn't doing it for me.

well, good luck with this replacement endeavor. Do they let you bring beer in? Perhaps it would make it a little more tolerable.

I'm with Junquedejour.. I say get thee to the tavern lady...perhaps they have a better class of sweaty grunting men there.
I have to catch up on some work or I'll be dragging my ass nowhere but I'll be by to check up on you. I'm thinking of you. Be good!

What is this "gym land" that you speak of? It does not sound like one I would like to visit.
I shall think upon it over an open Family Size bag of Cheetos.

Vital: Ladybugs, as in...ladybugs? Will they have dollar bills with men's phone numbers attached to their little bodies?

Kelly: We'll have to have an elliptical machine stand off next time I'm home...(and I hope you met a hot wedding crasher!)

Darren: oh, right, my blog's about YOU... ;)

Brenda: surly OJ and vodka would be a perfect electrolyte replacement...I really think you're onto something!

Lorna: Good?? Must I? ;)

Kat: as long as they're not the baked version...

They happy voices in my head say everything is about me.

Aww, sorry...thought you would understand....Under The Tuscan Sun. It is from a scene in a movie. My meaning was not clear.

Vital: ARGH! Can't believe I missed that - I love that movie!
