My Summer Reading


I'm totally in the new Tacoma City Arts magazine this month - the July issue with Deborah Ritchie on the cover. It's now monthly, and it's just out. Apparently copies are now available at the Stadium Thriftway, but I haven't seen them anyplace else yet.

Looking through the current issue, it looks like a really good one. The piece on Deborah Ritchie of Deborah Page, the highlight of Frost Park's Chalk Off, the preview of the Tall Ships festival...I'm really looking forward to reading through the entire thing.

And why am I in the mag you may ask? Just a quick question about what I'm reading recently, in which I mention Jenette Faluda's book Half-Assed: A Weight Loss Memoir, which you can see a preview of here:

You can also check out her blog Half of Me here, where she goes by the handle "Pasta Queen".

Her book is an interesting look at what it's like to go from over 300 lbs. to half that weight, and the mental and physical adjustments that come with that change. Faluda lost the weight on her own, without the help of diet programs, and continues to maintain her weight loss, holding herself accountable to her own conscience and her blog readers.

I'm a big fan of PastaQueen's blog and book and was delighted to stumble across this mention of her book in cyberspace.

However, one minor point: the spelling of her name is:

Jennette Fulda

Its like you examine my thoughts! You appear to understand so a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or anything.

I'm not sure exactly why but this site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

There's certainly a lot to learn about this issue. I like all of the points you made.

Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Finding the time and actual effort to generate a top notch article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon everyday. It's always helpful to read through content from other authors and practice a little something from their websites.

Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.
