This is what Austin needs == A GREEN Pizza box! I love it.  I would really use this on a weekly basis (OK … if I wasn’t on my horrendous DIET – UGH).  Maybe I should get endless pizza from Homeslice for posting this–and telling them about it! 😀  


So I needed some therapy last week…. just a lot on my mind and nowhere to express it.  I tried some writing and it felt uninspired.  I poured myself more and more into my workout routines.  Fail.  There just seemed to be some weird continuing spiral of confusion inside my head.  So I took to […]


So I started running this week… for various reasons…. Let me make a list of why– 1. I have gained 15 lbs since moving to Austin, TX from Denver, CO 2. I can’t afford a therapist 3. I want all the hot people walking down the street to think to themselves “OH, I want to […]

OK. So I wasn’t too stressed about Hurricane Ike, until I heard the update on it.  It’s apparently going to hit Saturday morning at the coast and reach Austin with up to 70 MPH winds.  Oh my goodness….I’m going to fly away.  So needless to say I’m a little worried.  It’s already killed over 100 […]
