I put "optimistic," but I thought I heard/read recently that research showed that peeople with pessimistic outlooks lived longer becuase they didn't bury their head in the sand with their health and pretend that nothing could happen to them.

I'd be surprised about that. All the people I know who have lived past 90 have been optimistic people. But that's just people I know so it's not a research formal thing.

Mimi -- a friend said she changed deathclock to "sadistic" (from optimistic) and said it told her she'd die in January 2014. hEH.

We lost my great Aunt at 105 and she was always cheerful and optimistic, even though at times...her life on the farm in Michigan, must have been tough...She unfortunatly did'nt know who i was for the last 10-15 years....

Day Three of high heel training begins... I think it might be getting slightly easier. Actually, more accurate wording is that it might be getting slightly less horrible.
Hi, you!!
What's this? Why heels now?
I am an avid daily high heel wearer, so I support this.
Now I did go from 3 inches down to 2. I buy a size larger than I wear and use the inserts, long ones with the arch support.
I stand mostly and get flak at work (from the larger, Birkenstock crowd, gah) but I don't care. They are lovely. ;)

I'm training for a fancy party tomorrow night (my boyfriend's friend's birthday, at a nice restaurant, cocktail party style).
:)

Since it actually seems to be working, I'm now finding myself trolling the internet and "window shopping" cute heels. A whole new world has opened up to me. Good for the closet, bad for the bank account.
