I Need a Makeover! The De-Frumpinization of @juliejulie


I have to fess up: I take a lot of pictures of myself for this blog, but usually only post the good ones (except when I let you see my bad hair on purpose!) So, some of you who don’t know me in real life, may think I’m a bit more…uh…less frumpy than I really […]

Exercising New Year’s Resolutions: Lucky Running


Happy New Year! It’s 1-1-11, which seems lucky, so I think we should talk lucky running. I’ve had a tough couple of months dealing with health problems, which put a real damper on my running career. If you’re a regular reader, you may recall my ongoing love/hate relationship with running. In fact, there was a […]

Gray Hair Angst: Time to Dye, Again


“Now that you’re well, let’s talk about your hair,” she said over eggs and toast at the diner. “I like it better not gray.” This is what best friends are for, right? I will not put you through the torture of a vote for or against dye or no dye this time, dear readers, although I […]

International Society of Hopscotch


I originally posted this a year ago, on December 5, 2009, but when I saw the amazing Mizfitonline’s post about her daughter playing hopscotch and the health benefits of hopping today, I remembered that I actually started this International Society of Hopscotch. Perhaps it’s time to hop to it again? In my ongoing quest for fun fitness […]

Politics and Beauty: Will Brains, Botox, or Photoshop get me to the White House?


Maybe I should run for President. There is talk of it. Okay, it’s me talking. Mostly. But I think it could be fun. I’d get new clothes, right? I used to think I’d be a horrible politician, because I’m not interested in politics, or politicians, or the intricacies of policy and law-making. Or fighting with […]

Sarah Palin Looks Just Like Me! Should I run for President, or just get my own reality show?


Sarah Palin for President? Huh. It could work out well for me, actually. Some people think I look like she does, so maybe I’d get some bonus perks if I walked into a coffee shop, or a hunting lodge, or on set at Fox News, or into the oval office. Maybe I should run for […]

Best Friends and Birthdays: the gift of hanging out with old BFF’s


I’m the one in the pink dress. 1983 was a good year. Which is better, new BFF’s or old BFF’s? Making new best friends is easy – I’ve been doing it since the day I was born. In fact, on my actual birth-day, my mom claims she liked me right away. I’d like to think […]

Spiritual Running: Listen to Your Body’s Inner Voices


Are you religious, or spiritual, or both? How about neither? Are you looking for God, or the Buddha within? Do you see angels or feel like you’ve lived a few (or 100) past lives and you may have 1,000 more, or do you think this life is it, your one chance to go for it? And what […]

Why Marie Claire’s Maura Kelly is in Trouble


In cased you missed it, a bunch of people are mad at Marie Claire Magazine, and one of their writers, Maura Kelly. She wrote an article about how watching fat people kiss on a TV show grosses her out, and compared the horrors of watching them do anything to watching a heroin addict or a […]

The Power of Sex, Joe Walsh and French Toast: Sunday Brunch and Marriage Review


I’ve been “under the weather”  this week, and considered canceling my Sunday morning brunch date with my husband. The relentless pouring rain and dizzying side effects from some new massive vitamins my doctor prescribed tried to lull me back to bed and a nap. But I was in NYC last Sunday and missed our date, […]
