I am trying an experimental diet. You restrict your eating to 8 hours per day. In the past four months I've lost 15Kg (33lb) without effort or discomfort.

I went jogging with Bill Clinton once, until a secret service guy on bike rode up to me and told me to stop. The president answered my questions and the secret service guy had a gun, so I stopped.

My front yard's campaign signs, much to my surprise, recently appeared in a picture in a national magazine.

Except for getting the 24 hour flu every ten years or so, I've never been sick.

Me too. Be astonishing if they were the same two kids, wouldn't it?

I can do perfect embroidery without a hoop on a moving school bus with bad shocks while a four year old child sleeps on me.

Second thing about me:
On two completely separate occassions with two different women, I've been engaged to them before going on a date with them. No mail-order brides or arranged marriages involved.
Well in that case... ;-)

I was effectively engaged to my husband before I'd ever kissed him.

Here's a couple: Me, Suburban Plankton and Ledzepkid at the beginning of the year

Me and Ledzepkid in September. I've lost another 15 pounds since this picture, but I don't have a more recent picture than this one.
