Double The Fun

Guys & gals, I just want to let you know right now, up front, that today will be a "two-post" kind of day.  I have SO much on my mind to share!  This post is going to be a mish-mash of thoughts, and later... I'll post guest blog #3 by the lovely Brittany Lee.

I'm all about transparency here at the Lounge.

If you think about it, blogging is very cathartic.  It allows you to talk about things that people may not sit and listen to, ever.  Without getting bored, or annoyed.  Or sharing their own opinions.  I can just talk, share, write, laugh at my own jokes- without interruption!

(With that statement, several of you have stopped reading.)

But for the solid strong who are still holding on- here's my mish-mash of musings today:

1)  Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution
Who watched?  What did you think?  I was completely engrossed the entire hour.  This episode took place in Huntington, West Virginia- the most unhealthy city in the most unhealthy country in the world.  I was shocked at how so many people were against Jamie's revolution- to make people aware of unhealthy eating habits that lead to obesity.  I wonder if Jamie will come to Oklahoma?  I know we rank pretty high on the "fattest states in the nation" list.

2)  Health Care Reform Bill
I don't want my blog to become a political forum (since I know it's right on the edge of becoming so; Nancy Pelosi & Sarah Palin are anonymous readers).  But, just know it's on my mind.

3) Personal Assistant
I love this blog, Camels & Chocolate.  And, I love the idea of having a personal assistant.  And, today, she's giving away a VIRTUAL personal assistant, thanks to The Hyatt Place.  For two months, the personal assistant service will help you tackle daily to-dos... from making reservations to booking vacations.  How fabulous?!  I hope it's also capable of delivering a piping hot Grande Skinny Vanilla Latte to my desk.  Enter to win on her blog.

Whew!  That's it for now.  Tune in later for Brittany's guest blog on travel.  

Hint:  Be near a restaurant that serves delicious margaritas upon reading her post.

Mish-Mashed on a Monday,


  1. I hope you get your virtual Betsy, keeping my fingers crossed for you and I can't wait to watch Food Revolution!

  2. I watched Food Revolution and and was also totally engrossed! Can't wait to see more! I hope some of those people become more open to what he is trying to do!
