Some Random Stuff

~ Had a good diet and exercise day yesterday, and have started off well today too. My mom and I are doing our own "diet challenge" for this week, Monday through Friday, to see if we can stick to it. So far, so good. One day down, four to go.

~ What is the deal with ex-convict sex offenders in NY State (Tier 3 offenders, no less, which means that they are the highest risk of re-offending) getting Viagra paid by Medicare? What that means, my friends, is that WE are paying for it through our taxes. Insurance doesn't cover most birth control pills, but will cover Viagra for child molesters? Someone, please explain!

~ How cute was Jon Bon Jovi on "Vegas" last night? I'd never seen the show before and won't watch again (snooze-fest, if you ask me), but oh, Jon, you are just too cute.

~ I'm going out to dinner tonight for Bitchfest 2005. Four of my former co-workers and I are going out to eat, drink, and gossip. Another former co-worker, whom I nicknamed "CIH" (for Co-worker I Hate), was just promoted to Assistant Director of the department. She is the biggest ass-kissing, back-stabbing, eavesdropping, conniving person you could ever meet. So the lesson we learned? It pays to be that way because you get promoted. The girls are going to be ranting and raving about this. Thank God I no longer work there.

Want a great diet? My wife recently got told to lay off the sodium due to her blood pressure... Most folks just figure this means don't add salt... But actually watch your sodium intake for once... Limit it to 2400mg... You will find that what you choose to eat will become a lot more important.

Hello Jersey Girl, Michele sent me! I agree about the Viagra thing when I heard about that, I think my jaw fell open? I don't think that I even read the article long enough to see WHY it was happening in the first place, I was too shocked.

I hope you enjoy the night out with the girls. :)

That viagra thing is crazy.
I can't understand how my California Grandmother can't get all her medicare benefits because the state is so broke from paying for people that are here illegally. Our seniors that built this country deserve better.

Trying to "diet" myself...not fun, but necessary in order to wear a bikini this year! LOL

Have seen Bon Jovi in concert abut 4 times now...always great!! If you haven't seen him yet, I'd recommend it!
