Start the new year off right with tight fat pants! Ole!

Argghhh, I am wearing fat pants today and they are tight. So, not good. I have 10-16 lbs to lose. But let’s start with 5. I hope to have 5 off by the end of the month. I can do that. Candy and sugar are out. I have 2 good eating days under my belt and am ready to rock and roll. 2008 is going to be the year of Monica (maybe not for you!), I just know it. 2007 was one of my best years yet. I laid a great foundation for being the person I strive to be. I will continue to do so in 2008 and have a lot of firsts to look forward to!

Boy did we get some snow in Cleveland. We shoveled last night and there was so much over night in the Heights, I was barely able to get out of my driveway! You have to love the lake effect.

Movie review time! “Juno” was just an amazing film, close to perfect. The acting and dialogue were superb. I loved, loved this film. Ellen Paige is going to be a huge star and I am always happy to see my Arrested Development people getting work. Arrested Development was the best tv show ever, so of course it was cancelled after 3 measly seasons. Jason Bateman and Michael Cera were perfectly cast. Gary and I saw “No Country for Old Men” last night, that one wasn’t so great. Well, actually it is really good, until the end. The ending is a jip and makes your feel like you wasted 2 hours of your life. No resolution, it just quits. What the F is that?

Well, I guess I better do some work today. It is always so hard to be back at work after a long break.

Hey! I can't wait to see Juno - I hear it's really awesome. I've heard good things about Arrested Development, too. Maybe you have inspired me to add it to my Netflix queue!

It's good to be back on my blog rounds again - I missed you and love you - even when you're wearing fat pants!

Love, Josh
