Random Thoughts of a Disordered Mind

Okay, I’m Game


If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don’t speak often, please post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want — good or bad. When you’re finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people remember about you.

  1. I remember the joy on your face in Brooklyn Heights every time you saw a child in a stroller — the Brooklyn Heights Baby Tour.

  2. Your positive post – it truly changed my life.

  3. Today I woke up very depressed. I felt stuck concerning a lot of issues in my life. One of the main ones being weight. I left my house to go to an appointment. I was driving down the street and I thought of how you had rejoined Weight Watchers. I, too, am a serial rejoiner. I swore that I would never join again. But I feel stuck, and confused and it works. I lost 40 pounds on it right before my 40th birthday. Well, I’m 49, now and need to lose it again. When I left my house I had no plans to join WW, but my car just pulled into the strip mall that houses WW. I got out of my car, looked at the times and decided to go to the 10:00 meeting. I went. I joined again for the ‘I couldn’t even begin to count’ time. But this time I didn’t go on and on to the lady at the front desk who probably doesn’t even care about how I’m so embarrassed to be back again. I just paid my money and marched myself into the meeting. The meeting was kind of hokey, but I made myself stay. I thought, get out of your own way, girl. These people are here for the same reason. I am so relieved. I have to have some control over something in my life. With this plan I always feel more in control of my eating and I don’t feel deprived, which is very important for me. But honestly, I don’t think I would’ve joined again if I hadn’t seen your post. You made me realize that it’s OK. Something clicked. Thanks!

  4. I remember when I first came to Boston for a job interview, and you made me (the friend of a friend) feel so welcome and comfortable on what might have been a lonely evening in an unfamiliar place. Following the directions to get to your place on the train, I began to feel that, yeah, this is a place I could call home.

  5. I remember so many good things about you and me.

    1. I remember coming back from the ER and we were at FK’s apt. You were trying to cheer me up and I felt bad b/c I had the nicer bed. We sat up and it was like a pajama party.

    2. All of us getting our pedicures on a snowy day on Montague Street.

    3. All of the many times you have cheered me up when I’ve been down on the phone.

    4. You writing me and telling me how much you liked “The Thirteenth Tale.” 🙂

    xoxo Lori

  6. You seem to truly enjoy any Grumpette stories. Plus you have been the best cheerleader over the past two years.

  7. Bet you can guess mine…. My return to the annual conference, when I was very frightened, and you made me laugh so hard and so often my ribs ached for days afterward.
