There are so many things to love about Neil deGrasse Tyson. He has helped make geek the new sexy. I love Neil because he doesn’t skirt issues and he stands tall in the face of ignorance.

Really, what is there NOT to love about this guy? @NathanFillion is funny, smart, and doesn’t take fame or life too seriously. Also, he is a sweet piece of eye candy. So if you haven’t jumped on the I <3 Nathan wagon by now … here is your chance.
Dear web content providers – relinkers – sharers – pinners et al.
PLEASE stop assuming. Your tag lines and attention grabbers are lame.
“You’ll never love anything as much as this girl loves this fish.”
“You’ll never guess what happened when this woman fell down the stairs.”
I love a good lotion. Coconut oil, rose hips … it can make a bad day a little better. I wish it was the solution to all things. The last few days have been hard. Allergens in the air, crazy barometric pressure swings, past due for my lidocaine infusion. I am grateful that my husband is so patient. But, still, there are days when I plan to get things done and they don’t happen. I feel guilty. I am harder on myself than anyone else. Even after fighting chronic invisible illnesses for the better part of my life, I still have to keep telling myself that this is a day to day kind of forever and you have to take the suck with the wonderous.
So I will find a comfortable place, rub some EOS lotion into my hands and then sip some Numi tea. I will embrace the pain – because the pain is telling me that I am alive and if I am alive I still have some fight left in me.
This morning I found a wounded mouse in the trap set by the water lines running into the RV. I didn’t think it right for it to suffer, so I killed it. I said I was sorry as I cried – I hate having to do any think like that. Later I made breakfast for us — I was sitting there telling Michael about what had happened earlier – crying again as I chewed my bacon. I am a hypocrite.
Time passes but still not a day goes by that I don’t wish you were still here with me.
I miss you
Thank you for finding me to be your very own Human. I will never be able to put into words what you did for me and how the memories of you carry me through. I miss you Korkabork. I always will.
My cousin is celebrating her birthday today. I wish I could be there with her to celebrate. In truth, she is more like my sister than a cousin. She is such a beautiful person – I am so very lucky to have such a kind soul in my life.
1 March 2014 marked the 3 year anniversary since I had my RNY gastric bypass surgery. Since then I have lost just over 200 pounds. My labs are all great and I am healthier than I have been in a long time. Even though I still deal with chronic pain as well as Fibromyalgia I am healthy and doing well.
I am really open about it because it is my hope that if more people are open then the ignorance and cruelty will some how go away or at least lessen. I am not asking anyone to be proud of me, I wouldn’t even if I lost weight without the tool of surgery. But telling people that surgery is the easy way out is beyond cruel and ignorant — it is just stupidity.
Someone once said to me “If you had any will power you wouldn’t be fat.” If that were really the case and I have no control .. explain to me how I and many other people who have had surgery control their diet so rigidly avoiding so many pitfalls every day. Take their vitamins and supplements every day like clockwork — and all of this without self control?!?
Weight loss surgery is NOT the easy way out. It is scary, it is not a free pass, it is not without risk. Would I do it again? Yes. Should you educate yourself before you make shitty comments .. absolutely.
