I’ve been accused of being too open-minded and I take that as a compliment. Who am I to judge? I don’t always understand the ideas, situations, or lifestyles that I encounter in conversation or personally but I refuse to impose my judgements on anyone or anything.
I am a Showtime network whore. I love all their shows from the now cancelled US of Tara which spoke to the Psychologist in me to The Borgias which sometimes offended the Roman Catholic sensibilities that are ingrained in me. For the summer, Showtime has come up with a new way to reel me in. It is a show called Polyamory: Married and Dating and it is about people living Poly lifestyles. Now Poly for you uninitiated is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved (Wikipedia). There are two relationships portrayed on the show: Lindsey and Anthony are married, Vanessa is their girlfriend and they form a triad. Continue reading “Polyamory: Married and Dating”
Have you ever heard something and immediately wished you could unhear it? Or seen something and wished you could wash your eyes out with rewind soap? While in college I used to visit sites like http://www.uselessjunk.com, http://www.collegehumor.com etc: these sites are filled with stupid, nasty and hideous pictures and videos. But because I have a very healthy sense of curiosity, morbidity and plain stupid, I would watch these videos with glee and trepidation. As I lay in bed last night I wondered of all the nasty, disgusting and vile things I have heard and listened to willingly, which of them I wish I had never heard. For the virgin ears and eyes that may read this, I am not going to define the terms, but if are brave enough, you can click on the words and learn something new today!

As I take this journey to a better, slimmer, fitter, deserving of the Air Force me, I am amazed at the realizations I make along the way. When I cut my hair and decided to go natural, I never took the time to enjoy the journey. From the TWA – Teeny Weeny Afro, to trying out different styles on the growing hair, I was in such a hurry to have long curly natural hair that I never got to appreciate each phase properly. This time with my health, I am determined to do better. It is not about the number, it is about the journey to health and what I learn on my way to my goal of a healthier me. Since I am doing such a rotten job at journalling lately, I look forward to coming back to this blog and reliving the journey. The two things I have learned so far…
1. I am a snacker. Continue reading “My journey to health!”
My head is reeling. Paleo. Primal. Caveman. All words used to describe a lifestyle choice whereby you eat like man did in the paleolithic ages. Man at that time was a hunter-gatherer and if he did not find it or kill it, he did not eat it. Agriculture brought about the end of these times as man settled down and began eating from stationary food sources. It is the belief of Paleo practitioners that our bodies have not evolved enough to digest the crap we are now filling our bodies with and since man in those days was probably the healthiest of all ages, if we eat like they ate, we should follow the same trend. There is still so much to learn but I have come to a couple of conclusions Continue reading “Paleo. Primal. Caveman.”
I have forgotten what it’s like to be a friend: a good friend. Let me rephrase that, I am nostalgic for the … Continue reading I miss my friend
