I often find myself feeling grateful, fortunate and hungry. Also a bit maudlin at times but with a smile because I'm usually keenly aware of how lucky we are to be here. Life, even at it's worst, is wonderful. And constantly funny.

Also, I'm secretly planning a post 45 year old thong model career. I just have a gut feeling I'm going to look my best from 45 to 47 in a half. Just a gut feeling though. Could eaaaasily be wrong.
