My diet's off and I'm feeling carb deprived.

Bring on the some cakes!

Owning a dog

Is it for you?

Australian bigfoot cheese!

Been there.

Pretty much how I feel all winter long.  I'd rather sit in my garden in below zero weather looking at snow covered flower bed rather than be locked up inside.

Yes we see it

It's impolite to point.

I should have spent my day doing food prep.  Don't ask

I certainly wouldn't complain

I wish someone would go through a little bit of trouble to help me find a mate.  And would it really be so terrible to be presented  with one's choice of eligible bachelors of a certain higher social and financial standing?
