So, Miss Peacock is looking for new work. She’s wants a job that “challenges” her. (At least, that’s what I say in interviews.) I put my resume up on the classiest of all job-hunting sites, Monster.com, and got a call from a local company who loved my resume and wanted to speak to me. They asked me if I was interested in doing the same thing I currently am, to which I replied YES, thankful that someone was going to take a chance on me.

I am currently sitting pretty at 26.5 pounds lost. WOW, you are surely saying to yourself, she must be PROUD! And I am. But maybe just a little bit disappointed as well. Read the rest of this entry →

After denying it for the past few years, I finally decided that I need to start dieting. When I was younger (all the way up until college, actually) I had the metabolism of a speeding train. I could eat ANYTHING I wanted and I never gained a pound. I was young, healthy, very skinny, and always active. And then I discovered one of the crushing realities of adulthood: if you are like most people, you sit at a desk for 8 hours a day, only getting up to go to the vending machine or the bathroom, where you sit on the toilet, quietly crying at the direction your life has taken.

I’ve been inspired by the other Wordsmoker poets to share one of my own poems. I wrote this back in January, when my grandfather was put in a nursing home because his Alzheimer’s had gotten so bad that my grandmother could no longer take care of him. He died in June.
Since it became Wordsmoker‘s mission late last week to get Miss Peacock a date, I felt that I owed everyone a run-down of my Halloween evening.
The evening started out well, my breasts tucked away nicely (though not TOO nicely) inside my blouse, a clanging, gypsy-like necklace hanging around my neck. The Certain Someone had not yet arrived, so I mingled with friends and ate copious amounts of candy corn while swilling a girly Smirnoff Ice (Passion Fruit flavor) from the 6-pack I had so thoughtfully brought with me. I was mentally keeping a certain Chillbear Latrigue‘s advice in the back of my head, particularly this sage piece of advice:

I will start out by saying that bar-none, the most quality men can be found on eHarmony. Even the ones who cannot spell or write worth a damn tend to have some endearing quality, even if it is only a Pilsbury-Dough-Boy-like pudge to their middle section. The men on eHarmony seem to be more genuine than those on Match.com or Plenty of Fish. eHarmony is definitely the place to be if you want to find someone as equally preoccupied with finding a spouse as you are.
