Sorta Ginger isn’t about spice, and it isn’t about Tina Louise on Gilligan’s Island. It is about a fading redheaded 35-year-old dealing with being
severely overweight obese while still dealing with bulimia. This blog is my way to work through the feelings involved with that since not everyone in my not-online life is privy to this information
I promise, it isn’t all doom and gloom though. This blog is not called “Diary of a Fat Bulimic” for a few reasons, one being that I don’t want to identify myself with just that one thing. Plus, I am trying to become healthier. There are other things in my life that I like to ramble on about, even if it is just to myself sometimes.
I love color but can’t draw or paint to save my life, so I stick to my artistic expression through wacky nail polish. Especially blue or other unprofessional colors. I can be very sarcastic, but not hurtful. I have the sense of humor of a teenage boy sometimes, which works well with the teenage son. At least it adds to the laughter in our house! We both rock out to cool and lame music, quote goofy movies and get overly competitive with MarioKart races. Try as I might to embarass him with blue hair, black nails, Hello Kitty shirts, etc. he shrugs it off. So I will keep trying.
To tell the truth, I am a huge dork and am embracing it at this point in my life. Given that I am an introverted bookworm who loves cats,is divorced and still single, that bodes well for my future. I just hope that rather than end up a cat lady, I end up a Cat Woman like Julie Newmar.
Thanks for stopping by!
