@juliasegal Just saw a book called, "Am I Crazy or am I Being Haunted?" seems like a lose/lose situation for the reader.

@3rdand10 I keep a loaded .45 in my glove compartment in case an Oasis song comes on the radio.

@kellyoxford Marking email I've subscribed to as 'Spam' instead of unsubscribing is probably one of the worst things I do.

@kdn13 Been stuck on the same Angry Birds level all week. This is my Nam.

And in honour of the BIG SECRET of the week:

@JennyJohnsonHi5 If I was Oprah's half sister, I'd legally change my name to "Oprah 2: Judgment Day"

@jasonmustian Half-sister, half-WHAT, Oprah? DRAGON?

@mollymcnearney Little dramatic that President Obama is giving a State of the Union address the day after Oprah discovers she has a half sister, right?

I tried yoga for the first time last week. It was not exactly what I was expecting. Although, after it was over I wondered what it was I actually was expecting. I joined the beginner class because it was starting a new group of sessions for January to March. I thought that since it was the first class in a beginner time slot, and that since I had never done any yoga previously, it was the class where I should begin my yoga life.

I knew that I was in for something entirely less challenging than I was hoping for when I realized that everyone else in the class were at least 20 years my senior. In an hour, I think we did 4 poses. The rest of the class was breathing. I wanted a challenge for my body and to be able to do some stretching and toning. But instead my greatest challenge was trying to quiet my mind and just meditate.

I'm definitely going to give yoga a second chance but I think I'll be moving on up to level 2 first.

Every now and then I'm reminded of the fact that I'm an asshole. This usually occurs when I'm holding a conversation at a dinner party.

@thesulk Whenever I don't hear from someone in a while I think, "Oh, shit. They found out."

Your breasts get a thumbs up from inside my pants.

@paulscheer I'm starting a line of Baby Tanning Salons called Burn Baby Burn.

I'm courting some new friendships. It's new and exciting and even though they might read this and it might be embarrassing for me to admit, it feels like dating. Perhaps this is because I wasn't on the dating scene for long before I met, started dating, and eventually married the man in my life.

I really plan to make an effort this time though. I've had girls as friends in the past and for whatever reason, we lost touch and it was back to me and the guys. Maybe it's because guys are easier and girls feel like more work. Friendships shouldn't be work, should they? I also think a large part of the blame falls on me and my obsessive nature. I often obsess over new female relationships, tell them way too much about me, tire of the effort it takes to make the friendship work and then I end it.

I think I need to learn how to play hard to get.

It's more than doutbful that I'll ever have T2 Linda Hamilton arms. But somewhere between here and there, I intend to find contentment.
