I believe that dragons are real, all girls are princesses, chivalry isn't dead, and that everyone truly is a good person.
I read sci-fantasy novels, play World of Warcraft and the SIMS, and believe that "Auntie Mame" is the best movie ever made.

I LOVE to cook, and since I'm half Italian, nothing I make is low-anything. I admit that I am fundamentally lazy, and would rather read, watch a movie or surf the 'net than get up and take a walk.

BUT... I have realized that even though my husband is one of those wonderful men that believe that women are supposed to be curvy... those curves need to be in the right place, and in the right proportions. I'm shooting for Marilyn Monroe by next summer!

It is a new year and a newer me! I have made it to halfway of my weight loss goal, and have never been happier to say goodbye to anything. This means that I am just a bit smaller than I was when I got married in 2001.

I am disappointed over the closing of the LA Weight Loss Center, as I feel it is a successful program, but I will perservere and check with my doctor about healthy alternatives to keep me on a healthy downward track.

I may not get to Marilyn Monroe by this summer, but 75 pounds in a year makes me feel great! I did it once, I can do it again, so I should be ready for that trip to Italy next year (pocketbook willing). I have been informed, however, that if I keep my hair the color it is, I have to aim for Rita Hayworth.

    ... and I thought I was the only person who *LOVES* "Auntie Mame"! Roz Russell at her glorious best! I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on the musical, Lucille Ball version of "Mame".

    Yes, I have to give Def Leppard kudos (always awesome music), but I have to go with Duran Duran as being the BEST '80s band. Original lineup of course.

    As a previous Oregonian myself (Albany), I have to agree the Willamette Valley is one of the most gorgeous places to live. Lucky you! emoticon

    Grats on 75lbs lost. Keep it up!
