Umm,duh?

Star Jones Reynolds has been candid about many issues in her life – getting fired from The View or rumors that her marriage was failing – but she’s remained mum about the secret behind her weight loss.

Now, in the September issue of Glamour, she’s admitting that, yes, she had gastric bypass surgery – despite previously denying she had the procedure. (See rest of the article here)

Is anyone surprised? Isn’t this public knowledge already? Normal people don’t just drop nearly 200 pounds in a year or two. Why lie or deny that you were doing something to help make yourself healthier? I just don’t get it.

It’s been 4 years today. He was a great friend, and an even better husband and soldier. Say a prayer or think good thoughts for his widow, Melanie, and his parents Les and Rafealla.

Leif had no problems making anyone feel at home, or making people feel at ease. He had this way of cracking people up….I’ll always remember him walking thru the halls in his letter jacket with the biggest grin on his face, just because…

The world is missing one of its best and brightest.

So here goes

The Rules: “Each person posts the rules before their list, then they list 8 things about themselves. At the end of the post, that person tags and links to other people and then visits those peoples’ sites and comments letting them know that they have been tagged, and to come read the post, so they know what they have to do.”

1. Physically, I’m not in the best shape that I have ever been in , but I am finally comfortable with it. It’s me, it’s who I am!.

2. Mentally, I am probably a bit unstable. Well, fickle anyway. I’m a consummate Libra: Always going back and forth between extremes trying to balance it all out.
3. Emotionally,I’m back to the Libra thing again. I don’t like confrontation, but it’s my nature to seek out gossip and immerse myself in it. I can be laid back about things that would tick the average person off, and become overly angry about something as minute as a speck of sand in my shoe.
4. Spiritually, I’m still “searching”. I read a lot of books regarding religion and spirituality, and am coming closer to finding what rings true for me. It won’t be anything over the top, but it won’t be mainstream either.
5. Philosophically, I think that we are all here for a reason, and its up to us as individuals to divine that reason and act on it, you may or may not get a second chance to do it.
6. Politically, I’m liberal as all get out. Pretty much, I don’t care what or who or how you do it, as long as it doesn’t affect me. You’re gay and want to get married? Sure go ahead! You want to stand outside an abortion clinic and protest for the “pro-life cause”…go right ahead. It’s call free speech, and I love it.

7. Recreationally, eh..not so much. I like the outdoors, when I can see it thru a window of an air conditioned room. 🙂 I love swimming, and water sports though.

8. Food-wise…I’ll try pretty much anything once, and most of it I enjoy. I’ve never met an Asian dish that I didn’t like, and rice is a must have!

Now to tag a few folks;

~ And anybody else who wants to play! (just leave a comment letting me know you did so I can come and see your answers!!)
