DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.

New Years' Resolutions

I was reading Freeda's post on the subject, and decided to pick up on her thread.

If someone looked at my calendar, they would see a lot of entries for:

I have every "group exercise" class I *might* be able to do scheduled on my calendar, so I know what is available when I'm not in night court. I haven't been going, I have the muscle tone of veal, and Stinky likes to jiggle my bingo wings. So I, along with half the country, will be schlepping back here:

(I snapped this pic around Halloween- isn't it cute?) As I was saying, judging from the calendar entries, one would think fitness is important to me. But my actions haven't borne that out. I hate "working out" ESPECIALLY "cardio". But I LOVE many activities that require strength and cardiovascular fitness. Like:

My summer home-- try to get me out of this kayak-- just try!

What really drove it home was when I took Stinky, my nephew, and my niece rock-wall climbing while I was in the Mitten for Giftmas. I used to do it all the time, but got injured then moved away. I've been able to resume bicycing and kayaking... but climbing... I couldn't even get more than halfway up the climbing wall.

Wow. That was a real shock. So now I have to get serious about getting back into shape.

Especially since I didn't fit into the climbing harness I already own, and had to use a rental!


  1. check you out lawyer doll, all about adventures!

  2. It's awesome that you're getting back into your activities! I've never been kayaking...maybe one day I'll try! Also, I wanted to say thank you for reading my essay. I saw you commented. It means a lot!
