Who’s a couch potato?

OK OK – you are not going to believe this but I just started ANOTHER blog.  Yes YES I know that is nuts!  Why don’t I just post here more?  Well, this new blog is only going to be about hiking in mostly New Zealand.  And I don’t really want to get side tracked on the new blog – I only want posts about hiking; here I rant and rave about anything and want to continue that as well.

SO NOT to stress – I am going to continue with this blog 😦 just in case you were worried LOL.


The new blog is called “The NOT so couch potato fat chick“.  All posts will come from me -Mabel, but if anyone wants to guess post – let me know – as long as it is about hiking/walking/tramping that I describe in my very first post – titled Who is the ‘not so couch potato…’ I am happy to add your posts.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know.  I you have the time – drop over and follow the new blog.  Let me know that I am know talking to myself over there LOL

Chat soon



30 Day Challenge, my life

Mmmm lunch for schmucks?

So have I just been invited to um, well, a lunch for schmucks?  See the other day I popped into Calvin’s office, long story short I ended up being invited to lunch with Calvin’s boss and a few others (yes including Calvin lol).


Anyway I always seem to have a funny story to tell, or adventure to share, and people want to hear them as they always ask me to share, but is that considered a ‘schmuck’?  Yeah ok, I am little unusual and at times have been known to lye down on the side of the road to take a level eye close up view of road kill but HECK even I have to say that I draw the line at picking up the road kill and making them into some odd diorama later ON!  :O.


So last night just before falling asleep my inner monologue (or my little monkey as Calvin likes to call it) started discussing whether am I that odd in a ‘schmuck’ way sorta person or am I that person people just like to have around them?  By the end of the conversion between me and my little monkey we decided that I am just that kinda person that people like to have about them.  If people see me as a schmuck its there loss not mine.  So I am off to get ready for my lunch with Calvin’s firm.  Chat tomorrow peoples – one week down three weeks to go.
