has the world gone mad with baked goods

ok, so several months ago i made a pretty good trade -- I got a gorgeous baby full of hope for humanity in return for my only marginally-attractive ass. I'm an indian giver tho (an accurate term on many levels) and have begun the process of reclaiming said marginally-attractive ass.

and let me just say, i feel slightly ridiculous in doing so. have always felt ridiculous in exer-wear, panting in a room of people who spend way too much time considering what formation to shave their pubic hair in.

But this time I have a trump card.The only real motivator i have is that i want my child to have so many of the things I never had -- one of those being a parent who takes her health seriously, understands exercise as an investment in a shared future with my son, and who know how to model self-respect ... etc.

ja and i watched the final Biggest Loser show together -- never having watched it previously did not mitigate the absolute awe that seeing someone lose half of their body weight inspires. If a 400 pound 40-year-old can haul his downtrodden butt out of bed for a better life, I'll be damned if I can't lose 40 pounds.

but it ain't about looks. it's about being here longer, to love and play with my son longer. and actually being attractive to my husband again wouldn't hurt if we want to give Romi a sibling at some later date. also, i want a fauxhawk that matches Romi's and that's just totally unattractive on my current frame.

But after the next baby, I want a boob lift. Considering the absolute mauling my vagina takes during the birthing of a child, you're getting off easy with only having to pay for a boob lift. Start saving Ja.

Hey...

My name is Joel and I run Astrokitty Comics & More in Lawrence, KS! I've begun organizing DRINK & DRAW events like the ones Dave Johnson holds on the West Coast. Our first few have been in Lawrence, but we're doing a big one in the KC area in January! January 19th to be precise! That is a Friday...and we'll be meeting at the 75th St. Brewery in KC to hang out and draw, drink, and hopefully engage in some good-natured debauchery! I would love if you and all other comic creators (writers and artists alike...because most of those who can't draw, WILL draw after a few drinks) in the Kansas City area would come out for this event! We got some local coverage here in Lawrence when we did our first one and this one should be even bigger! We'll provide drawing surfaces...you bring the drawing tools and money for booze! Don't drink? Come on out anyway and be someone's designated driver and still have fun drawing and drinking Shirley Temples!

Check out http://www.astrokittycomics.com for more info in our NEWS section!

Seriously...this is going to be an awesome event and I hope everyone creating in the area can and will make it! Please tell your friends!
