Proof of My Insanity: Part One

  • I am stalking a baby. His mom takes my train every morning and he is the most adorable 13-month-old cherub with huge round eyes and sweet puffy cheeks and he looks right at me and waves and high fives and it makes my uterus ache. I am trying to not give his mom any reason to take out a restraining order, but IT IS HARD. I want to nom him up.
  • I recently read that polycystic kidneys can weigh up to 22 pounds (as compared with a less-than-one-pound average for normal kidneys). Now when I weigh myself, I mentally subtract 5 pounds for each kidney. (What?)
  • I attended a ballet class last night for the first time in 22 years. At the AGE OF 43. Holy frack, people. On the plus side, I did not (quite) fall down; on the minus side, my feet cramp every time I point my toes. Which, you know, happens a lot in ballet. (We won't even discuss the ronde-de-jambs I performed like a spastic howler monkey.)
Proof of former ballet prowess:

Happy Friday!

Ballet? You know, I think I'd LOVE to do that. It's been a few years (ok, like 25) and I miss it!

I stalk babies too. It's okay. As long as you don't take them and try to nurse them, you're golden!

Also, really cute in the tutu, Ruth.

i don't know which is better - the tutu or the headpiece.

keep it up and your feet will do better.

It's good to know that I'm not the only weirdo that stalks babies..only I prefer Asian babies, I'm not really sure why seeing as I am NOT Asian..ahem
