Okay. I am officially freaked out. There’s a picture of Milo Ventimiglia that I just scrolled past…and…it bears an unmistakable resemblance to my grandfather…my grandfather who is no longer alive…and it’s just…it’s just weird. It’s really, really weird. And I can’t help but be reminded about how grandma used to talk about the girls that would come up and flirt with him, even though she was standing right there, and he was completely oblivious. She said there were even those who would ask to have their picture taken with him, like…out of the blue…just because they thought he was that handsome. And, I remember staring at the pictures when I was a kid and trying to imagine him that age, all not-in-black-and-white and cute enough to get that kind of attention. And…suddenly, looking at a picture of my favorite modern celebrity…I can finally see it. Even though it’s kind of a goofy picture. But, I guess that’s why I can see it. My grandpa always played the clown with us kids. I mean, unless there was some reason to be serious. He always made crazy faces and talked in funny voices and… …and I look at this picture, and I see my grandpa.
Dolls have given us an unrealistic image of women.
For example, I found out Russian women do not contain smaller Russian women inside them.
“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.”

I’m diabetic. I have celiac disease. I also have an anaphylactic reaction to almonds.
AND. I. WANT. CAKE. I want a white, fluffy, glutinous cake with thick, rich, sugary, white frosting, maraschino cherries, and slivered almonds!!!
I just don’t wanna die…
“The whole of life is just like watching a film. Only it’s as though you always get in ten minutes after the big picture has started, and no-one will tell you the plot, so you have to work it out all yourself from the clues.”
