Dim Sum Diaries
Dearest readers,

I get many questions and comments from readers of this blog, my twitter acct and in real life, about my superb sense of etiquette, sophistication and general demeanor and grace???...in other words, how to act like a lady. After much soul-searching and thinking, I have decided to share the secret of my ubah success with the rest of the world. So dear readers, if you want to learn how to be the epitome of grace, style and poise, follow this simple guide.

I did!
Dude, it's been awhile since I've blogged (yeah I know I start out every blog entry like that don't I?)...I find it a lot easier to randomly twitter my thoughts instead writing a long ass post. I hadn't really felt the need to post really. But here I am! So away we go.

If you've interacted with me online, you'll find that I can be quite the rambunctious, foul mouthed perv (especially if I feel comfortable with you!). However, since I freelance from home and don't get out much (cept to go to market), if you meet me in real life and I don't feel quite comfortable with you, I can be quite...shy. Introverted even! I went to a trade show recently to meet up w/ some dudes from work (and had only corresponded w/ via email before)...and I think I came across as an introverted, quiet type..."this is the girl whose been doing our marketing? Are you sure???? Maybe it's a body double!!" So I was like...feck... Oh and if you get used to talking a certain way online via ventrilo or im ("You #%@#$@#$#$ FBOMB FBOMB FBOMB GO SUCK A HOT C*CK", and everyone knows your joking and accepts your foul mouthedness as due course), whilst in real life, trying to describe the camaraderie w/ my online buds to my sister...I paused mid F-BOMB because then I realized her mouth was gaping in shock. Oh yeah, people don't talk like that in real life, do they? OOPS!

So I'm still adjusting to this disconnect...I have a upcoming business trip where I visit work...we'll see if I'm able to break out of my Dr f-bomb Jekyl/Mr. shy Hyde mindset...

Trying to focus this year on making sure the kids/hub are doing well, focusing on working out (apparently it's way easier to lose the weight in the 30s then the 40s, and since I'm almost 38, I figure I should kick it into gear now), so doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, and trying Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Fat Burner supplements to see how it goes. One week down already and I can see some results. Also discovered this blog, Everyone Likes Sandwiches, this girl has some amazing recipes that have gotten me interested in cooking again, and making delicious dinners. I swear I'm going to try every recipe she's ever published.

Also, reading through Lloyd Alexander's entire published works...since he is the one who got me interested in the fantasy genre back in middle school (all those years ago) in the first place.

I hope everyone is having a great year so far...I know I am.
