Thank God I Am NOT the President of the USA

Okay so I wake up every day thanking God, or the powers that be that I am NOT president. I mean, who on earth would want that job? No matter what you do, people hate you. And nothing is ever good enough and you are always trying to fix what some other jackass did before you.

Personally I think Bush was smart, yes he was, he has an over average I.Q. but he was NOT ready for the job at hand. Life was good when he got elected and as far as America knew all we had to worry about was Bill's extra activities. Little did Bush or anyone know that someone in the middle east was carrying a grudge from Bush senior years before little Bush got into office. Huge mistake!

So now you have a man who really hasn't done much in his life in the White House-good God-and then we get attacked and little Bush gets played like a rag doll by the people he hired to help him. He really wasn't ready and now we have Obama who is doing his best but the mess that he was left is beyond ginormous.

The lefties are angry because they are still poor, the righties are angry because they are always angry, the middle east still hates us and Obama can't seem to do anything right, or can he? I think he's doing a great job in the face of what he has to face every single day. I have a bad day and I have to rewrite a chapter or take a character out, or do a new drawing, or whatever-no one dies because of what I do, and no wars break out, etc. Poor Obama-give the man a break for fuck sake he is doing a great job, seriously!

He has my vote and there is pretty much nothing he can do to change that. I am very open minded about politics and used to be a die hard Republican-but you know I used to like the Yankees too-we all grow up at some point-so I am open. That said, the righties have gone way over the deep end. Women shouldn't vote? Only white men voting? Christian this, Christian that. Half of the south-oy vey, the south-thinks Obama is from a country in Africa that they can't even find on a map. Everyone is spreading lies and hate via Facebook and ignoring what this country was built on.

It's pretty fucking scary these days and so I chose to read the "Onion" not because I don't care, because I do, but my life is hard and scary enough, I just can't get sucked into the crazy of American politics.

I am just thankful that it's not me up there in the Oval office having to deal with the constant bullshit day in and day out.

Just sayin'

OBAMA 2012!!

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

I Love Flying--It's My Only Quiet Time

Drawing by me, Stephanie Olivieri may not be used without permission. THANKS
I have several trips coming up this spring and while I don't like the idea of winter weather while flying I do love flying and here is why.  1. No one can reach me while I'm on a plane so I get that alone time I so desperately need.  2. I get to do nothing and it's okay. It's okay that I'm not at the gym or doing squats at my house, it's okay that I'm not working on anything-I'm on a plane so yay, it's okay to do nothing.  3. It's soothing to my soul to be up in the clouds.  4. You can eat, drink, sleep, and watch TV/movies while getting to your destination.  5. I love to meet other people so while I'm not that annoying chatty seatmate, I do enjoy meeting others. 

AIRPORTS. I love them. I love everything about them. 
I know I'm strange, but I implore you to enjoy your next flight. Think about the fact that you are just there to relax and get to your next city, …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
