The Last Biscuit

I had the very great pleasure of listening to Sir Terry Pratchett, or TP to his hardcore fans, last night at the midnight signing of his latest book.  It does not really matter what the book is called or indeed is about - it is TP.  You know it will a paradocial look on some aspect of society that will make you lol and say ah yes but of course.  The man was frank and to the point in the interview, no dilly dallying and as such he came across as a man who had  lived his life and was comfortable with his position in it.  Yes his mental health is indeed a tradegy and I shall be one among the masses who will miss him when he is gone, but what a wealth of literature he has left behind for us.  TP fan or not, I challenge you to read Nation and not shed a tear.

It seems that I am a very lucky girl.  I have been invited to New York!!  Yes my friends, the big apple.  I am so excited I can hardly breathe!!  I have never been state side and cannot wait to see what the colonials have been up.  I have always wanted to go to the big U S of A but always thought in the back of my head that America might annoy me too much.  This is the perfect opportunity to sample a slice of the American life and find out for sure.  After all I can't do a coast to coast motorbike ride if the yocals annoy me too much!!

So what about the last biscuit?  As all women, and more men then they care to admit, I have been on a diet for much of my adult life.  It has only been in the last year or so that I have finally been able to get a handle on being healthy and not become as round as a ruben.  This is a journey that I think will be well travelled for some time to come but it is one that I look to with fresh eyes and excitment for what lies ahead. Tonight I joined the local gym, this action has been repeated many times over however I really feel that now is the time to grab that crazy thing called life and live it.  Acheive my goals.  Reach my potential.  And have a lot of fun along the way.  Here's to the last biscuit - tomorrow is another day.
