Okay folks, so earlier this morning I was 100% convinced that Obama was going to win and I ignored the internet, but then people starting talking about it and I looked and was beyond shocked that Mitt was winning-What the F? Seriously? How could this be happening, my life was flashing before my eyes as the worse thing in history was about to happen? A tad dramatic? Yeah, a bit, but I am a writer. 
That said, I was worried, but I had a talk with someone who actually is smart and has a brain and isn't a jerk and this person actually made me see that it would be okay, the world would go on and to be fair, my life probably wouldn't change that much. This person was right and I knew it, but I was still nervous, so nervous that I didn't even tune into the election until a friend on FB said OBAMA won. Now I am beyond happy, it was like the minute I let go, things went my way.
Well folks, 50% of the country isn't happy and they are worried. That's not good. These are our people and it's not right to shove this in their faces because it could have easily been us. This person who I spoke to today said, "that's how the other side felt last time." When I said, "I'm so worried if Mitt wins." Very smart and 100% correct. 
So while I am so excited, I don't think it's right to be mean and nasty to the Republicans who lost tonight because they aren't happy and it's never right to rub someone's nose in it. How about instead about being awful, you say, "It's going to be okay because...." and show them why you cast your vote today? Just a thought. Yes Mitt hasn't conceded, so what? I mean, he lost, it is what it is and he lost, so by making your right friends feel bad is helping how, exactly?
It's not. Show our president that you respect him by not sinking to anyone's level and be the person you want him to be and have some class-for fuck sake! (Couldn't resist that last bit-you get the joke right? Haha)

"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…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …

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…
