Like a 7x7 Lion.

Like a freaking lion.March ... something about in like a lion, out like a lamb, right?

So in roars March, with a new edition of EXIST Magazine, my boyfriend in LA, and a blood sugar of 345 mg/dl after eating only a 20g organic granola bar.  What the hell caused that?  I hope the end of the month is nice and lamb-like.

Nothing cures this chaos like a meme, right?  So here’s the “7x7” one, stolen from ChickenYogurt.

Seven Things To Do Before I Die:

1.  Have a family.
2.  Finish my damn book.
3.  Learn to tolerate the taste of seafood so Chris and I can both enjoy scrod, instead of me  making faces at him whenever he orders it.
4.  Visit Ireland.
5.  Open a cat-wrangling farm, like in that Superbowl commercial from a few years ago.
6.  Learn to change spark plugs.
7.  Live.

Seven Things I Cannot Do:

1.  Give up.
2.  Speak a foreign language (though I can understand Spanish, I can’t speak a lick of it).
3.  Drive slowly.
4.  Keep my mouth shut.
5.  Understand how people can be so cruel to one another.
6.  Resist blogging.
7.  Laugh quietly.

1.  His wicked sense of humor.

7.  He looks damn good.

Seven Things I Say:

1.  “Oh for crying out loud.”

I laughed out loud at number 5 of your things you say- "This is definitely diet, right?”

I say that too!

Love your blog!


Gee, it looks like the Lion is here too, Kerri.... same EXACT lunch, same time of day, same ratio, no stress, no nothin'..... and a whopping 215 after meal test! This after a whole week of target numbers! What the heck.....

Outstanding blog, btw.


It's gotta be the weather... it's snowing a storm here, and my BGs have been high all day!

and yeah, i really enjoy your blog :)


Hahaha...I also like the "This is definitely diet, right?". All of my friends and family understand how to order for me "I need a medium DIET coke please"...with much emphasis on the diet. :)

I am reading Sweet Invisible Body (after you highly recommended it)and also Needles.
Just wanted you to know - that even us OLD, (52) folks are listening to what you have to say!
Keep up the good work Kerri....

Yay! Blog fodder! Hoorah. I was in a slump.

What's scrod?

Scrod is the New England "catch of the day." Check out Wikipedia for a good grammar joke, too. :0)

The Devil's Arithmetic... I remember Mrs. Latz reading that to us. I bought it a few years later and have read it a few times since then. I was actually thinking about it the other day - if you've seen X-Men 3, the part where Magneto shows his tattooed number. All I could think of was "8 is how many we were. 2 there are of us left..."

There's that damn kitten farm again...


nice blog! regarding changing spark plugs, I also want to learn. :) My vw spark plugs needs a replacement and I don't know how and maybe just bring it to a shop. Driving slowly.. well, there's nothing wrong with that, in fact it would help you not to be in an accident if you're a defensive driver.
