Stupid Stuff Friday

Okay, here’s your “Dumb Things Jody Did” report for the week ending July 14. The list is short, as you can well imagine. But that’s okay, because what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality. Let me preface this by saying I completely blame my employer, but I’ll explain after I provide […]


I Love the Internet

Okay, so after a week, I’ve just about had it with the limitations on phase 1 of South Beach. I am being very good, but I’m just not a salad person even though I have to have one or more a day. So there’s that. So I was sitting here, as the All Star Game […]
