Hello, it's Wednesday, and I'm posting! I just finished a really great book. It's called Fact of Life #31 and is by Denise Vega. It's a teen angst story, about a girl whose mother is a midwife. She is an outcast in High School, but has the predictable crush on one of the popular guys. What was unpredictable about this this book was, it was great! It took that same story told a million times (you know the one, my parents don't understand me, school is painful, unrequited love) and really made me feel it. Katima, the protagonist was great at expressing how we have all felt at one point in our lives. I loved it, and I want to recommend it, buy her new books for the library, and tell all 3 of you reading to check this one out.

Do I only post on Mondays? I tried to keep the one about the grilling until later in the week, but when I posted it, it said Monday! Well, this weekend was pretty slow because Jason was sick! Poor guy, slept most of it through. Today, we are trying to start a diet. I'm not sure it's going to go very well, because I have absolutely zero willpower. I also don't want to give up the foods I like. Okay, love. I really love pizza, and not some no cheese, no bread facsimile of it. That, I hate. I adore french fries, not something cleverly packaged to look like them. Right now I'm really hungry, because we started off with a juice fast to let our stomachs shrink. So, I don't know. I really think we should excercise more. There's the key. I just don't like doing it, and I really hate getting up early. But, I know I'm overweight. I know I should do something. But, also, I'm all for acceptance. Isn't it my choice what I eat, and what I look like? Don't I deserve to be treated the same as thin people? UGH! Why does fried food have to be so good!!!
