A few things came to mind today, nothing coherent, but instead a jumbled mess of random. So, here is post that is similar in spirit to how I feel at the moment.

Have I mentioned the weirdness that is Governor Tarkin (from Star Wars) and John Tyler, the former US president? Time travel? Perhaps. If I recall correctly, John Tyler was counted as an enemy of the U.S government later in life. Talk about partisan politics. If Peter Cushing, the actor who played Tarkin didn't have such a notable and public life, I would have suspected them to be the same person.

Actually, one of my favorite pastimes is trying to figure out who looks like who. My facebook page has a photo album dedicated to friends I think look like famous people. Don't know why I'm always doing that.



Also,  on occasion, my work email will get out to world at large by mistake. No harm done, but then I’ll get something that I just can’t make heads or tails of from time to time, like this:



I’m at a loss for words, truly. There is no context to put that email in. I got it, it made no sense. I just clipped an image of the end because it pretty much sums up the vibe I got from the whole thing. It's like that post I did a few weeks ago where I ran a phrase though a translator several times before posting it. Why would someone send me this?

Unfortunately, I’m also at a point in my life that I’m either going to have to break down and buy some fat clothes, or I’m going to have to lose weight… when is the right time to give in? I’ve been puttering around in my current clothes for the past year and every single pair of pants I own has lost its button, one pair has lost its zipper, and I’ve learned that if you try to fool the pants by having the button replaced so it offers more comfort to the ever growing wearer then it will look very strange, putting buttons on the very edge of the fly makes for an ugly look.

I hate Monday's. 

Oh well, off to have a pop tart sandwich and ask myself how I could possibly be gaining weight.

Lose the weight - it's cheaper.

buy the fat clothes to be comfortable and lose the weight. Weight loss is a long and hard road but you need to psych yourself up for it and be ready to make some lifestyle changes. You can do this. I know I'm struggling as well. We can encourage each other :)

Being someone that lost, basically, 100 lbs in less than a year, I'm just gonna say cut out the sugar. It's easier than you think. As long as you pay attention to what you buy at the grocery store.

I like the look alikes you found. Very cool. I also used to like to eat cinnamon poptarts for lunch with milk. Yummy.

Okay, two words for you...protein diet. Cut out the carbs and sugar. As writers we sit a lot, and the pounds will creep on. I have to force myself to work out every day because it's more fun just to blog or write. :)

I can see the resemblence. Has to be a wormhole involved. No doubt about it.
