Okay, I’m not at prime muffin top right now since I lost weight being sick, but in general this is not the time of year where we feel svelte. Drinking, sweets, roast meats, plus when it’s colder our bodies are covered up and layered. Only that lucky dude who we picked up for the cold months or a husband gets to see any flesh. ( in fact, got dolled up recently and felt great being a tad thinner)

Make sure it looks nice, like this picture my friend took in Joshua Tree. In the winter the stubble can grow fast.. legs, underarm, chin.
Anyway, I got a ‘fan’ message recently saying that they loved my muffin top. A newish friend thought that was an odd compliment. That’s when I realized she hadn’t seen my one bona fide viral video and didn’t know that we need to embrace our muffin top! Something to grab and hold. So, encore! Happy Holidays
One of my most viewed videos I’ve ever done spoofed the “dress to mask your flaws” genre. I celebrated my muffin top. Since the close of Campanile I cook a lot more, so when my friend saw these little bake tins of course she thought of me!! Genius!! They are even denim like!
For a trip down tummy memory lane:
Getting ready for Easter. Mark and I are hosting my family. We are planning the main course, so my sister said “I’ll bring a coconut cake.”
Me: Great. But, can you get something else too because like your husband my kids don’t like coconut.
Her: Yes, But, I don’t get this not liking coconut. It’s Easter. Christ rose again with a coconut cake in his arms.
That joke carried me for hours yesterday. It reminded me of a sight gag I did at Christmas. On Christmas eve I ran into the 99 cent store because though I had planned ahead I was just a smidge short of wrapping paper. The Christmas section was so picked over it was like a bomb had gone off. I picked the ugliest paper, all that was left, and saw an empty nativity scene. Like looters had taken the Holy family, the wise men, the donkey and only left the manger. That gave me an idea. So I put this on my mantle.
I lampooned the concept of working from home. We all want to do it, but does it really make sense? Lots of behind the scenes comedy. Today I was on a business call and taking notes. The caller had no idea where I was writing down these important notes.
