Which President(s) exactly?

I want to think it is Lincoln and Washington, but not exactly sure. Whom ever we are celebrating today with closed banks and no mail, Mr. P and I both have to work, so our Presidential celebration will be a bit lacking, quite like the focus of this blog post.

Our Valentine's Day was FISHtastic. There was an open bar, very funny lecture about animal sex which included examples of walrus self-gratification, an 8 foot whale penis AND the soap opera digest version of the life of penguins. Oh,and FYI, dolphins are the skanks of the marine mammal world...apparently they have LOTS of sex, with boy dolphins, with girl dophins, and even other critters as the desire hits them. No wonder they always seem so happy. Anyway, we camped out in the tunnel of one of the huge aquariums, and it was really neat. However, I basically did not sleep at all, so once we got home yesterday that is about all I did.

I have a crazy amount of work to do in the next three days and then I am on a quick trip to visit my NEPHEW (and sister and brother-in-law)! I won't even mention how it is supposed to be SNOWY and WINDY this weekend at the airport.

Last, but not least, I took my fat test this morning. 94.53% ! I lost 1.6 lbs this week, which is right in the "recommended range" of no more than 2 lbs per week, but I got a message from Weight Watchers that if I am not happy with the amount I lost, I should try some activity. Kind of a bummer message considering the amount of activity I have already been doing.

Gots to shower and get to work. I am out.

Your Valentine's day sounds like a blast. So glad you guys got to go do something so fun.
Yay, weight loss! I think I may have found your 1.6 pounds...I blame the f'ing birthday cake.

That message is probably a form letter. Don't let it get to you!

Sounds like a fun V Day!

Yeah, sometimes I get irrationally angry at WW, like when they take a point away...I want to punch them in their neck.

I'm glad you guys had a nice time! We are looking forward to your visit.

So glad you had fun on Valentine's Day! That is something I would totally love to do. I am now going to be madly googling all sorts of facts about animal sex as I did not get to go to a neato lecture with open bar and camp out.

And wow! 1.6 lbs! It's mid-February and you're just shedding the pounds! That's awesome.

Have fun in NYC!

Congratulations, H.P.! Great to see all your hard work paying off.

Do you know what is really weird? I went to a dinner event at an aquarium last week, and the docent was telling us the same thing about dolphins. They had three males in the tank and she said they all had sex with each other.
