I never had a high opinion of Kim K, but it went even lower when I heard she hooked up with Kanye.

I like Scotch.  We have an understanding.  It's my friend and I am Scotch's friend.  We get along pretty well, even if we only get together occasionally.

Yesterday morning I went to a Catholic church where I was distracted by a charming little girl who kept insisting on taking her boots off, to her mother's chagrin.

Yesterday evening I went to Vespers at an Orthodox church, where I was distracted by yet another charming little girl who kept insisting on taking her boots off, to her mother's chagrin.

(I hoped that was the case, but it's always good to check - for all I know you may have lost 35 pounds due to an illness and been looking for sympathy.  ;D )

Sleeping is important. It is king. Diet is queen.

Whether you want to lose weight or gain, put sleep before all else.

To lose weight stick with about 8 hours.

If you are really putting on weight in a proper manner and you are still in puberty < ~23 years of age for males, then 12 hours is going to be the norm. You will have to sleep that much with the quality of exertion and amount food required to gain weight.

When I went bonkers, I nearly slept weekends away. That was the only time in my life I wasn't an insomniac, till I started get my sleeping sickness from being at the parish.

I've met many men who were queens. Women sanely enough don't seem to have the desire to be something as ridiculous as a king.
