Notes from the field:
1. Cousin O’Love and her husband, let’s call him Excel Man prepared the Thanksgiving feast and what a feast it was! Straight from Gia’s kitchen we had the most wonderful food prepared with impeccable timing thanks to his use of some foreign thing called a “timeline”. I know not of this thing but apparently, it seems to work. Most of the meal was right on schedule (more or less). His time as the Goddaughter of Love’s kitchen minion was well spent. He learned at the hands of a master. When they open a Bed & Breakfast (by the beach, preferably) I shall be one of their happiest customers.
2. I did not get out of my pajamas Friday at all. I spent the day doing intuitive readings and hanging out with all kinds of Guide teams. I’m pretty sure this is at the forefront of my work because I love it, for one thing and for another, the feedback I’m getting is that their words really resonate with those who have asked for the readings. This makes my bitty high heart happy.
3. I watched two of my favorite movies on Friday as well – Enchanted and Return to Me. Oh, to be a princess in New York, wandering around, dancing with strangers and making dresses out of curtains! Or having the man of my dreams (or David Duchovney, doesn’t matter) follow me to Italy to tell me he loves me. If you haven’t seen either of these movies, I highly recommend them.
4. My “stop looking all puffy” diet began yesterday – and had I not already been in that mindset, I would have after seeing pics from Thanksgiving. Oh. My. God. This has been a weird eating year. I went from fasting for 12 days in January and doing so well and feeling great to swinging up to my highest post gastric bypass weight in 12 years. What the hell? At any rate, I’m done. While eating whatever I wanted felt good in the short-term, long-term it feels like crap. I feel like crap. My body is too good to me to continue to treat it this way. So, back to counting carbs and a bit of calories. And yes, I know. What a challenge to do this at the holiday season. Am I nuts? (don’t answer that)
5. Is there a reason that all media attention is on Tiger Woods and his accident other than lurid curiosity? No? Okay. Honestly, leave the dude alone. It ain’t anyone’s business. Most shit that gets disseminated now by so called “news” media is no one’s business. And what IS our business isn’t quite as “sexy” so no one hears about it and/or they hear distortions.
Okay, that’s it for dispatches from the field. Have a good Tuesday!

As a fellow preparer of the feast of Thanksgiving, I can concur that timelines are KEY for a successful dinner for multiple people. My family thinks I’m nuts but I have all my different recipes (along with notes) posted on the cabinet doors in the kitchen along with a sheet that just lists the various timings (when to start prepping, what goes in the oven when etc.) GO Excel Man GO!
Return to Me was filmed in Chicago, you know. We joked about David Duchovny needing a restraining order to protect him from one of my coworkers. (I think we were joking.)
I’m conflicted about the Tiger Woods thing. On the one hand, I admire his nads for just stonewalling everyone. On the other hand, I hate being sexist. If Mrs. Woods had been in the car, or even one of my female neighbors (not a celeb), with unaccountable facial abrasions and her man was standing nearby with a golf club, I would want the police to press and encourage her to prosecute for domestic violence. Hitting is bad, no matter who wields the club. And no one deserves to be hit, no matter how they spent their Thanksgiving afternoon.
