Living ~400lbs

… and believe me I am still alive

This cake is great

I occasionally get comments about the “and believe me I am still alive” subhead on the blog and how “defensive you have to be to have that on your blog”.  Er, mostly it’s a joking reference to the Jonathan Coulton song. (Lyrics here.)  And it’s a way of metaphorically rolling my eyes at all the people who (still) say I’ll be dead at age 30 or 40.

(Never mind that I just turned 50.)


It also expresses that despite being very fat, I’m still alive.

It also expresses that I may not be always posting, but yeah, still alive.

  1. I saw that you had stopped posting here and had started putting more on Twitter. Or maybe you were always active on both places and slowed down in either.

    Glad we still have you. :)

  2. Happy birthday and I’m glad the cake is not a lie! Or is it?

  3. People and their comments, oy. It’s like the humorless zone. And glad you are still alive! LOL

  4. Happy (belated) birthday wishes! And thank you for posting.
