About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

For the Oceans,

“Dude, You're Skinny!”

WOOOOO! I am a size smaller, yes, SMALLER than  before I got pregnant with Harry. I am also a few pounds less, which is a big deal for someone who has dealt with weight issues her entire life. I've always had to be on a diet, and to weigh less than I did before I was pregnant is amazing! Now I just have to hit the NYSC (gym) and work out regularly to tone up the area where the c-section was done, because I'm not an exact size. I'm a size 5 trapped wearing 7's. The 7's are so loose on my thighs and calves, even my butt. I hate that. :( The bagginess on my thighs is the worst thing.

Most of my old clothes are size 5 (I wear Juniors clothing, not womens), but I do have a good amount of size 7 to hold me over. I also have a few bins of size 3 and smaller. I have no intention of aiming for size 0 again. Maintaining a size 0 was far too much work. As much as I love my size 0 clothing, I couldn't see myself preparing special meals for myself and for others on top of making sure I get enough cardio to keep myself into those teeny tiny clothes. 

Knowing I'm almost a size 5 is enough for me :) Hearing a friend say, "Dude, you're skinny!" was really uplifting. Add to that positive little blurb the fact that someone said, "I thought you were in your mid-thirties like me!" and you have enough compliments to keep you boosted for the month...or more ;)

An afterthought, and a plug for a really cool jean company. When I saw KIX perform live this past summer here on Long Island, Brian Forsythe was wearing the coolest cords I ever saw. Well, I found them, and I want them. They're expensive, but I bet they're worth it. The jeans were by Marc Vachon, and at first glance, I assumed they were a pair of Brian's vintage jeans.

This is the pair I wanted to buy a couple of months ago. they were well over a $100. (I think they were around $175., but I could be wrong!), and now they're only $99. each. Yes, ha ha ha @ ONLY!
