I heard about that lawsuit. Clearly that lawyer's next suit will be suing Willy Wonka because there's no such thing as a snozzberry.

Have fun!

Maybe you can wrassle a shark for Mr. Nguyen, for your boot camp on the beach.

I'm going to go sue Toys R Us because it's not actual Transformers or Bakugon DOING THE SELLING.

Happy travels!

Wanted to offer a tip but already have a yoga mat so didn't want to enter the contest (would rather the gifts go to someone who wants/needs them). I've been trying to eat healthy and my new go-to cooking method is cooking in parchment, or "en papillote." Basically, you put what you are cooking in the middle of a sheet of parchment paper, then fold it up and crimp the edges. Then put it in the oven. It is basically steaming but better because it has the flavor of roasting. It is healthy because you don't have to use much oil/etc. Kids like it because they get to open their own personal packet at dinner. Some recipes:

Just search "in parchment" or "en papillote" on any recipe search engine. Julia Child has a good salmon en papillote recipe if you have any of her books around. Hope this helps make some recipes more exciting!

GO YOU!! You have lost weight, lowered your BMI, and BOOT CAMPED your way to better health!

Remember that whole wonderful supportive motivational entry you wrote where you said, "People who succeed at getting in shape are NOT the ones who never fall off the wagon and land face down in a quart of Edie’s Grand Fudge Ripple. Everyone does that sometimes." Remember that? It applies to Cheetos too. Every day is a new day!

That story about the Crunch Berries is too funny! They might have to invent a whole new kind of Darwin Award for some folks...

Hope you are having a wonderful vacation!!! I, myself, am going to Cape May in August--there will be swimming involved!!
